Effect of heat treatment on the properties of sol-gel deposited ZnO seed layers
Bašinová, Nikola ; Černohorský, Ondřej ; Grym, Jan ; Maixner, J.
Zinc oxide nanorods as a potential material for nanoscale devices are prepared by chemical bath deposition (CBD). The effect of the quality of the sol-gel deposited seed layer on the vertical alignment of the nanorods to a silicon substrate is discussed. Emphasis is put on the investigation of the impact of the heat treatment on the properties of the seed layer deposited by dip-coating. The sol-gel method is a multi-stage process consisting of three principal steps: (i) preparation of a solution with suitable precursors, (ii) deposition of the precursor solution, and (iii) the heat treatment. The preheating needs to be performed to thermally decompose the zinc acetate precursor into zinc oxide seeds. Three different temperatures of preheating are compared (300 degrees C, 350 degrees C, 400 degrees C) followed by annealing in argon at 800 degrees C and the influence on the quality of the seed layers and vertical alignment of nanorods are discussed. When the preheating temperature is higher than 350 degrees C, the seed layer comprises smaller and denser crystallites with a preferential orientation along the c-axis. CBD growth of ZnO nanorods on these seed layers results in their good vertical alignment
Musical Dramaturgy in films of David Lynch
Černohorský, Ondřej ; KUDLÁČ, Jakub (advisor) ; Klusák, Martin (referee)
David Lynch is one of the most important American postmodern filmmakers. His films are typical for their visual style, intellectual difficulty, surreal sequences, and intense emotional impact. Music used in his film is one of the most important tools how to achieve his artistic goals. This thesis is focused on the means how David Lynch uses film music in his films since his collaboration with composer Angelo Badalamenti. The film music of the particular film Mulholland Drive will be analysed and the results will be extrapolated on other of his films, namely Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, Wild at Heart, Lost Highway, and Mulholland Drive.

Platinum is a transition metal known for its catalytic properties, which are further enhanced when employed in a nanoparticle form. We have recently shown that a monolayer of Pt nanoparticles deposited on semiconductor substrates forms high quality Schottky diodes, which were used in sensitive hydrogen sensors with a detection limit of 1 ppm of H-2 in N-2. Preparation of ordered monolayers of Pt nanoparticles is essential for the understanding of the behaviour of such an interface. To obtain a hexagonal closed-packed nanoparticle array, we prepared Pt nanoparticles stabilized by oleylamine and oleic acid with a narrow size distribution and uniform shapes. A monolayer prepared by dip-coating of Si substrate in the suspension containing Pt nanoparticles showed hexagonal arrangement within separate domains with the surface coverage up to 90%. The increase of the surface coverage with increasing withdrawal speed of the dip-coating process was observed

High quality Schottky diode hydrogen sensors were prepared by the deposition of colloidal graphite on n-type InP substrates partly covered with PVP-protected Pt nanoparticles (NPs). A sub-monolayer of the Pt NPs was created by simple evaporation of the solvent in which Pt NPs were dispersed. The Pt NPs serve to dissociate hydrogen molecules into atomic hydrogen, which is absorbed at the metal-semiconductor interface. Hydrogen absorption leads to the formation of the dipole layer, which changes the Schottky barrier height and results in the increase of both forward and reverse current. The proposed hydrogen sensor showed high sensitivity response of similar to 10(6) to 1000 ppm H-2 in N-2 at room temperature

Metal nanoparticles have many interesting properties which is given by their space restriction. Their large active surface is very well exploited during catalysis. Pd and Pt are metals know for their ability to dissociate molecular hydrogen on single atoms. We prepared Schottky diodes on semiconductors InP, GaN, GaAs, and InGaAs to obtain hydrogen sensor. Method of preparation such diodes is electrophoretic deposition of Pd or Pt nanoparticles from their colloid solution onto semiconductor substrate. Over the layer of nanoparticles, porous metal contact was prepared. Hydrogen molecules are dissociated on these metal nanoparticles and single atom which settles on the interface between metal and semiconductor and they increase or decrease Schottky barrier height. By this method we can measure from 1 ppm H2 in the air, where the current change is over one order of magnitude
Graphite/n-InP Schottky barrier with electrophoretically deposited Pt nanoparticles for hydrogen and nitrogen-monoxide detection
Žďánský, Karel ; Vaniš, Jan ; Černohorský, Ondřej ; Kacerovský, Pavel ; Fojtík, A.
N-type InP was deposited with Pt nanoparticles (NPs) by electrophoresis. The Pt NPs density was varied from a tenth of monolayer to several monolayers. Schottky contacts were made by colloidal graphite on the InP wafer site covered with Pt NPs. It was observed that H2 was detected by an increase of the current while NO was detected by its decrease. For explanation, we discuss mechanism which involves negative charging of adsorbed H atoms with electrons by increasing affinity level due to correlation efects

Graphite Schottky barriers on n-InP and n-GaN with deposited Pd, Pt or bimetallic Pd/Pt nanoparticles for H2 sensing
Žďánský, Karel ; Muller, M. ; Černohorský, Ondřej ; Yatskiv, Roman
High Schottky barriers have been achieved by applying colloidal graphite on n-type InP and on n-type GaN semiconductor crystal wafers. The barrier heights were shown to be close to Schottky-Mott limit ad thermionic emission theory. Porous properties of the graphite Schottky contacts were demonstrated by scanning electron microscopy.
Study of layers of Pd on InP
Černohorský, Ondřej ; Žďánský, Karel ; Proška, J.
Pd nanoparticles were prepared in colloid solution stabilized by AOT. The layers were prepared by electrophoretic deposition through the mask of polystyrene spheres. SEM measurement showed that particles in colloid solution are separated and after deposition they form small aggregates on InP. The size of these aggregates depends on the time of deposition. I-V characteristics were measured and then Schottky barrier height and ideality factor were calculated. The morphology of layers was monitored by SEM.
