Miller indices are a notation system in crystallography for planes and directions in crystal lattices. In particular, a family of lattice planes is determined by three integers, l, m, and n, the Miller indices. They are written (lmn) and denote planes orthogonal to a direction (l,m,n) in the basis of the reciprocal lattice vectors.

Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have interesting, structure-dependent electronic properties. In particular, CNTs can be a metallic or semiconducting depending on the way in which the carbon atoms are arranged in the CNT walls. The purpose of this learning module is to familiarize students with the basic concepts associated with CNT electronic properties. It begins with a pre-test to assess initial student knowledge of the topic, followed by a presentation and reading material on the electronic properties of CNTs. This is followed by some exercises that utilize the CNTbands tool on the nanoHUB for computing key electronic properties of CNTs. Finally, a post-test is administered to determine the degree to which the module assisted in student learning of the fundamental concepts associated with the electronic properties of CNTs.

Collecting ABACUS from my text collection into my Solid State Devices collection.

 

… and it worked — the new text is there, and the link to the resource (tool page) also works.

Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science

After interviewing hundreds of scientists, Mr. Alda became convinced that many researchers have wonderful stories to tell, but some need help in telling them. Mr. Alda played an important role in the creation of the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science, and has led workshops that use improvisational theater games to help scientists communicate more directly and personally.

This lecture series introduces the basic concepts and key topics underlying the interdisciplinary areas of BioMEMS and Bionanotechnology. Advances in this field require the knowledge of polymer processing and soft lithography in addition to knowledge of silicon-inspired fabrication. Since the end goal of these devices and systems is to form sensors for biological and chemical entities, this introduction covers DNA, proteins, microbiology, and microfluidics to equip the listeners\’ deeper engagement in these exciting areas of research.

This course will cover the basic concepts of design of integrated nanomedical systems for diagnostics and therapeutics. Topics to be covered include: why nanomedical approaches are needed, cell targeting strategies, choice of core nanomaterials, technologies for testing composition and structure of multilayered nanomedical systems, optimizing zeta potentials, design and testing of cell and intracellular targeting systems, in-vivo issues, drug delivery and proper dosing, assessing efficacy of drug/gene delivery, nanotoxicity, animal testing, and regulatory issues. In addition to attending lectures and participating in classroom discussions, students will write and present an original research nanomedical system design project. This course will serve as an interdisciplinary training for doctoral students in Biomedical Engineering and other fields for a basic understanding of the principles and challenges of nanomedicine.

Three part lecture on metamaterials. Metamaterials are expected to open a gateway to unprecedented electromagnetic properties and functionality unattainable from naturally occurring materials, thus enabling a family of new “meta-devices”. In these three lectures, we review this new emerging field and significant progress in developing metamaterials. Specifically, we describe recently demonstrated artificial magnetism at high frequencies, including the visible part of the spectrum, negative-index in the optical range, and promising approaches along with challenges in realizing optical cloaking. The new paradigm of engineering space for light with transformation optics will be also discussed.

We will apply simple yet powerful ideas of physics to gain some understanding of biology. (What is the inertia of a bacteria and how does this affect its behavior?) We will begin with atoms, move to molecules, then macromolecules, then cells, and finally whole systems. For example, how do we see? The answer: photons cause the release of chemicals that create electricity. How do we move? The answer: tiny biomolecular motors break chemical bonds, using the energy to create force and motion with efficiencies that put man-made machines to shame. These motors, and indeed, much of biology at the molecular level, operate at the nanometer (one-billionth of a meter) and picoNewton (1 trillionth of a pound) scales. How can we measure such tiny things? Come find out! No prior biology knowledge or prerequisites, since the course includes a molecular biology primer.

“Nanomaterials,” is an interdisciplinary introduction to processing, structure, and properties of materials at the nanometer length scale. The course will cover recent breakthroughs and assess the impact of this burgeoning field. Specific nanofabrication topics include epitaxy, beam lithographies, self- assembly, biocatalytic synthesis, atom optics, and scanning probe lithography. The unique size- dependent properties (mechanical, thermal, chemical, optical, electronic, and magnetic) that result from nanoscale structure will be explored in the context of technological applications including computation, magnetic storage, sensors, and actuators.
