Overview

This learning activity guides students through the visualization of three-dimensional crystal structures using the software package Ovito. Students work in groups manipulating crystal structures on their personal computers, ranking the planar densities of the (100), (110), and (111) planes in face-centered cubic (FCC) and NaCl crystal structures. The activity can be performed in a 50 minute lecture session, in a lab or discussion section, or as homework.

Ovito is an…

In 2004, Dakota County Technical College started a 2 year, AAS degree Nanoscience Technician program. This program has always involved an aspect of computer simulations, both in a specific Computer Simulation class and as a part of several other classes such as the nanoelectronics and materials science classes. This presentation will discuss not only how nanoHUB simulations have been used in this 2 year program but how their use has evolved and expanded over the last decade.

This instructional video is part 1 in a two part series.  It provides an
introduction to computational modeling, including motivation for studying
this topic.  The Schrödinger Equation is reviewed and its relationship to
Density Functional Theory (DFT) is explained.  The Kohn-Sham Method for
creating density functionals is presented, and the SIESTA simulation code
is introduced.

Blockchain Development Services

Today the buzzword is decentralization. Blockchain Technology enables digital information to be distributed and not copied, thereby creating a backbone for a new digital age. The global spending on blockchain development is estimated to be $2.1 billion, with the growth of the blockchain software space projected at a CAGR of 48% by 2022. The blockchain is an immutable ledger for recording not only financial transactions but can virtually record anything of value.

Electrochemical sensing of analytes is mostly enabled by transducers based on potentiometry and amperometry. In this, design of sensing (working) electrode is of utmost importance since it only decides the sensitivity and selectivity features of the sensor. Chemical modification of the electrode surface, especially with nanosized materials constitutes an important approach to achieve the desired goals. Clinical diagnostics, involving rapid analysis of physiologically important molecules is a contemporary area attracting the electrochemists.

Carbon electrodes have been modified with nanocomposites of poly (3,4-ethylenedioxy thiophene (PEDOT) and gold nanoparticles were prepared and characterized. The modified electrode enables amperometric detection of dopamine (DA) at nanomolar levels and exhibits excellent selectivity for DA over ascorbic acid. Further the modified electrode is able to estimate amperometrically µM concentrations of uric acid in presence of ascorbic acid. The efficacy of the electrodes has been tested with real samples. Analysis of another important molecule, hydrogen peroxide at nanomolar levels has been achieved using carbon electrode modified with a nanocomposite comprising nanosized Prussian Blue moieties and Au nanoparticles. Carbon electrodes have been advantageously employed to detect µM levels of triclosan, an antimicrobial agent in healthcare formulations. An electrochemical sensor for the estimation of glycated hemoglobin has been developed for the first time and it is expected to play an important role in the management of diabetes mellitus. Some interesting results of these investigations will be discussed.

DNA has been well known for over 50 years as the predominant chemical for duplication and storage of genetic information in biology. Now DNA has also been recognized as a useful building material in the field of nanotechnology. DNA provides basic building blocks for constructing functionalized nanostructures with four major features: molecular recognition, self-assembly, programmability and predictable nanoscale structures. DNA self-assembly can lead to nanoarchitectures with complex …
