      Charge generation in inorganic/organic photovoltaic blends 

      Westenhoff, S.; Hayes, Sophia C.; Greenham, N. C.; Silva, C. (2004)
      We apply ultrafast spectroscopy to investigate charge generation kinetics in blends of semiconducting polymers and cadmium selenide nanocrystals with photovoltaic applications. The rate is limited by diffusion of the primary ...

      Direct observation of ultrafast long-range charge separation at polymer-fullerene heterojunctions 

      Provencher, F.; Bérubé, N.; Parker, A. W.; Greetham, G. M.; Towrie, M.; Hellmann, C.; Côté, M.; Stingelin, N.; Silva, C.; Hayes, Sophia C. (2014)
      In polymeric semiconductors, charge carriers are polarons, which means that the excess charge deforms the molecular structure of the polymer chain that hosts it. This results in distinctive signatures in the vibrational ...

      Ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic interactions in lanthanum cobalt oxide at low temperatures 

      Androulakis, J.; Katsarakis, N.; Giapintzakis, John (2001)
      Systematic dc and ac magnetic susceptibility studies have been performed on single-phase (formula presented) powder samples. Evidence is presented in support of the existence of ferromagnetic (FM1, FM2) and antiferromagnetic ...
