Optoelectronics Of Graphene Based Van Der Waals Heterostructures from the Author: Qiong Ma (Ph. D.). Research on van der Waals (vdW) materials (homo- or hetero-) is a rapidly emerging field in condensed matter physics. They are layered structures with strong chemical bonding within layers and relatively weak van der Waals force to combine layers together. This unique layer-bylayer nature makes it easy to exfoliate layers out and at the same time to re-assemble in arbitrary sequences with different combinations. The versatility, flexibility, and relatively low cost of production make the scientific community enthusiastic about their future. In this thesis, I investigate the fundamental physical processes of light-matter interactions in these layered structures, including graphene, boron nitride, transition metal dichalcogenides and heterostructures formed from these materials. My research involves state-of-the-art nanoscale fabrication and microscale photocurrent spectroscopy and imaging. In Chapter 1, 1 will briefly discuss basic physical properties of the vdW materials involved in this thesis and introduce the main nanofabrication and measurement techniques. Chapter 2-4 are about hot electron dynamics and electron-phonon coupling in intrinsic graphene systems, among which Chapter 2 is focusing on the generation mechanism of the photocurrent at the p-n interface, which is demonstrated to have a photothermoelectric origin. This indicates a weak electron-phonon coupling strength in graphene. Chapter 3 is a direct experimental follow-up of the work in Chapter 2 and reveals the dominant electron-phonon coupling mechanism at different temperature and doping regimes. In Chapter 4, I present the observation of anomalous geometric photocurrent patterns in various devices at the charge neutral point. The spatial pattern can be understood as a local photo-generated current near edges being collected by remote electrodes. The anomalous behavior as functions of change density and temperature indicates an interesting regime of energy and charge dynamics. In Chapter 5 and 6, 1 will show the photoresponse of graphene-BN heterostuctures. In graphene-BN stack directly on SiO2, we observed strong photo-induced doping phenomenon, which can be understood as charge transfer from graphene across BN and eventually trapped at the interface between BN and SiO2. By inserting another layer of graphene between BN and SiO2 , we can measure an electrical current after photoexcitation due to such charge transfer. We further studied the competition between this vertical charge transfer and in-plane carrier-carrier scattering in different regimes. In Chapter 7, I will briefly summarize collaborated work with Prof. Dimitri Basov's group on near-field imaging of surface polariton in two-dimensional materials. This technique provides a complementary tool to examine the intriguing light-matter interaction (for large momentum excitations) in low-dimensional materials. Chapter 8 is the outlook, from my own point of view, what more can be done following this thesis.

Functional Graphene Synthesis Characterization And Application In Optoelectronics from the Author: Van Chuyen Pham. Zusammenfassung: Graphene has recently attracted enormous attention within the scientific community due to its outstanding optical, electrical and mechanical properties, and is highly promising for various applications. Also, semiconducting CdSe quantum dots (QDs), with easily tunable optical and electrical properties, have already demonstrated their potential for application in various applications such as photovoltaics. In this thesis, the transparency, high carrier mobility and high specific surface area of graphene were combined with the optical properties of CdSe QDs in a novel hybrid material, CdSe QD decorated graphene. Based on the synergetic properties, the hybrid material has been successfully characterized by various methods and was introduced in the active layer of hybrid solar cells, remarkably enhancing the power conversion efficiency of the solar cells. Graphene oxide (GO) was synthesized by a modified Hummers method. Then, oxygen-containing groups within GO were reduced and partially transformed into thiol- functionalities. As a result, thiol-functionalized reduced graphene oxide (TrGO) was obtained. This was achieved by refluxing GO with phosphorus pentasulfide in dimethylformamide solvent. The thiol groups serve as anchor points for the attachment of nanoparticles. This was realized with CdSe QDs and ZnO nanoparticles, respectively via a self-assembly process, whereby novel hybrid materials were obtained: nanoparticle decorated TrGO. Various techniques and methods such as SEM, TEM, XPS, FTIR, UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy were used to characterize GO, rGO, TrGO and QD-TrGO hybrid materials. Based on the results, the materials were further modified and developed to obtain the desired properties and functionalities. Graphenes with different functionalities and reduction degrees were also investigated in comparison with carbon nanotubes using electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy. For application in photovoltaics, CdSe QD-TrGO hybrid material was mixed with semiconducting polymers to form photoactive thin films which were utilized in hybrid solar cells. The photovoltaic cells showed significantly enhanced solar power conversion efficiencies. The graphene-based hybrid solar cells achieved a PCE of up to 4.24%, which is 46% higher than graphene-free cells and is in the range of the best efficiencies of hybrid quantum dot-polymer solar cells so far. Additionally, CdSe QD decorated rGO was tested regarding its utilization in photoconductors. Preliminary results proved that photo-induced charge transfer from QDs to graphene occurs, resulting in a measurable photocurrent contribution. This finding is consistent with those obtained from PL quenching experiments and the quenching of EPR signals for CdSe QD-TrGO hybrid materials. This finding further demonstrates the high potential of nanoparticle-graphene hybrid materials for optoelectronic applications
