This presentation is a tutorial for plotting higher quality figures by Matlab. Basic elements of plots are introduced and the way to manipulate these elements by coding is explained. Tow methods for dual axis plotting is described. At the end an approach to print figures automatically (by coding) is described.

Characterizing the mechanical properties of materials using indentation has been around for centuries. It has recently emerged as the technique of choice for evaluating and characterizing hard and soft tissue. Recent work on mechanotransduction – the transduction of biological signals through mechanical signals also provides fertile ground for work in this area. It has also been used in understanding the different cell functions and…

Metamaterials—artificially structured microcircuits that can mimic the electromagnetic response of atoms and molecules—have vastly expanded the opportunities available for the design of electromagnetic structures. Starting in 2000 with the first report of a “left-handed” metamaterial, for which both the electric permittivity and magnetic permeability are simultaneously less than zero, metamaterials have been demonstrated to exhibit properties either difficult to achieve or non-existent …

One of the most unique properties of light is that it can package information into a signal of zero mass and propagate it at the ultimate speed. It is, however, a daunting challenge to bring photonic devices to the nanometer scale because of the fundamental diffraction limit. Metamaterials can focus light down to the nanoscale and thus enable a family of new nanophotonic devices. Metamaterials, i.e. artificial materials with rationally designed geometry, composition, and arrangement of nanostructured building blocks called meta-“atoms,” are expected to open a gateway to unprecedented electromagnetic properties and functionalities that are unattainable with naturally occurring materials.

An important pursuit in semiconductor physics is to discover new materials to sustain the continuous progress and improvements in the current electronic devices. Traditionally, three material types are in use: 1) Metals 2) Semiconductors 3) Insulators. All the three material types are classified according to the energy gap between conduction and valence bands derived from band theory of solids. Recent theoretical predictions and confirmed by experimental observations have provided evidence …

Engineers and scientists working on electronic materials and devices need a working knowledge of \“near-equilibrium\” (also called \“linear\” or \“low-field\”) transport. The term \“working knowledge\” means understanding how to use theory in practice. Measurements of resistivity, conductivity, mobility, thermoelectric parameters as well as Hall effect measurements are commonly used to characterize electronic materials. Thermoelectric effects are the basis for important devices, and …
