[Illinois] Plasmonics and Its Applications Workshop 2016
25 Apr 2016 | Workshops | Contributor(s): George C. Schatz, Bjorn Reinhard, Jennifer Hollingsworth, Kathy Willets, Jeremy Smith, AbderRahman N Sobh, Jao van de Lagemaat, Amanda Haes, Maiken Mikkelsen, Prashant Nagpal, sayantani ghosh, Emad Tajkhorshid, Nicholas Kotov, Anatoily Pinchuk
The study of plasmonics has been around for several decades now. The study of the interaction between the electromagnetic field and the free electrons in metal have been found as advantageous for applications in devices and more recently, in biological systems. The focus of this workshop will be on the applications of plasmonics to biological and biophysical systems. Renewable And Sustainable Energy Institute (RASEI) at the University of Colorado Boulder...
[Illinois] Colloidal Quantum Dots and Plasmonics Particles II
21 Apr 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jao van de Lagemaat
Dr. van de Lagemaat is currently the Center Director of the Chemistry and Nanoscience Center at NREL. He received his PhD in 1998 from the University of Utrecht. He worked on the exciton dynamics, charge transport properties, and the physical and chemical properties of interfaces of large-band-gap semiconductors such as SiC, GaP, GaN, and diamond. From 1998 to 2001, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at NREL. His studies focused on charge transport and recombination in dye-sensitized solar cells. His papers in this field have proven seminal to the understanding of this unique system. From 2001 to the present, he has worked as a scientist at NREL on the energetics and transport properties of single semiconductor nanoparticles (quantum dots) and arrays of nanoparticles using tunneling spectroscopy and microscopy, transient photocurrent, transistor measurements, and computer modeling. He is currently researching tunneling-induced luminescence and plasmon-resonance imaging of individual quantum dots, the interaction between carbon nanotubes and organic semiconductors, and the use of plasmonic-enhancement effects in solar energy conversion systems. In addition to his position at NREL, Dr. van de Lagemaat is also a fellow of the Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute as well as a fellow of the Materials Science and Engineering Program, both at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Lastly, he is a lecturer in the Department of Physics at the same university.
