Solving problems is a key skill required for developing academic success and is desirable to graduate employers across a wide variety of industries and, as such, needs to be valued by both educators and learners. This thesis describes the investigati... Read More about Approaches used by science disciplines when solving open-ended problems and their links to cognitive factors.

Electroluminescence and inorganic phosphor science (2007)
Thesis
Metsios, I. (2007). Electroluminescence and inorganic phosphor science. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4213196

The research is focussed on wide bandgap 11-VI semiconductors, and more specifically on ZnS and CdS, with applications as thin film electroluminescent displays in the expanding display device market. The science of electroluminescent semiconductors a... Read More about Electroluminescence and inorganic phosphor science.

Optical characterisation of quantum well infrared photodetectors (QWIPs) for gas sensing applications (2004)
Thesis
Lai, K. T. (2004). Optical characterisation of quantum well infrared photodetectors (QWIPs) for gas sensing applications. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4212398

Although much work has been done on λ∼5-12 μm quantum well infrared photodetectors (QvWPs), the distinctive feature of this project is the use of strain compensated materials on InP substrates, AIAs (tensile) and InGaAs (compressive), to achieve shor...

Optical and ion beam studies of excimer laser irradiated hexagonal silicon carbide (2000)
Thesis
Walton, C. D. (2000). Optical and ion beam studies of excimer laser irradiated hexagonal silicon carbide. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4222761

The realisation of doped regions, specifically Nitrogen, in Silicon Carbide (SiC) for transistor and p-n junction applications is a serious problem. Difficulty arises because of the low value of the diffusion coefficient and consequently the excessiv...
