Undergraduate final project topics

Associate Professor Maytal Caspary-Toroker

Final project suggestions:

  1. Developing new materials for computer-aided reduction of air pollution
  2. Characterizing nanotechnological sensing materials
  3. Using materials to create computer-simulated fuel alternatives
  4. Converting solar energy into electricity using computer virtualization

Associate Professor Rachman Chaim

Final project suggestions:

  1. Developing a model to describe nucleus rotation during its growth
  2. Developing a model to describe the process in spark plasma sintering of oxides using the SPS method. Knowledge of the Matlab software is essential in order to take on this project.

Professor Eugen Rabkin

Final project suggestions:

  1. Mechano-stimulated equilibration of metal nanoparticles
  2. The metal nanoparticles produced by solid state dewetting method will be indented with the aid of AFM, and recovery of their shape during high-temperature heat treatments will be studied using AFM and high-resolution SEM

Associate Professor Yaron Amouyal

Final project suggestions:

Final project suggestions:

Analytical and numerical analysis of the piezotronic effect – the influence of mechanical stress/strain on the metal/semiconductor barrier height:

The project is theoretical/computational, and will involve adapting the non-ideal model for the barrier height (Bardeen), to a piezoelectric semiconductor. The student will gain a profound understanding of metal/semiconductor junctions, and the piezotronic effect.
