    Use Gaussian processes to represent x-y data.

  2. Epitaxial Strategies for High Power Optically Pumped Vertical External Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers and Metamorphic Antimonide Solar Cells

    05 Dec 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Ganesh Balakrishnan

    We present antimonide-based photovoltaic cells grown on GaAs and Silicon substrates for use as sub-cells in metamorphic multi-junction solar cells. These antimonide cells, based on GaSb, are designed to absorb near-infrared photons. The GaSb layer is grown on either GaAs or Silicon substrates.

  3. Seeing Nano: Using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) to View Nano-size Objects

    02 Dec 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Samantha Andrews

    Nano-size objects are smaller than the wavelength of light and because of this they cannot be viewed with a light microscope.  Special tools are needed to see nanoscale objects, one of which is the scanning electron microscope. This activity will have students explore the types of images...

  4. How Small is That?

    02 Dec 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Jamie Ryan

    This lab is designed to help students understand the size of nanoparticles compared to the size of other known quantities, such as a human being or a skin cell. After the size of nanoparticles is understood, the students will be challenged to come up with a way to “save”...

  5. Pulsed Power as an Enabling Technology for Cellular Manipulation and Cancer Treatment

    02 Dec 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Allen Garner

    Ongoing research explores the application of pulsed power for biomedical applications, including athermal sterilization of milk, water, and juices, cancer treatment, permeabilization of cells and tissues for drug delivery, and even wound healing.  This lecture will provide a general...

  9. Electro-deposition of Copper on a Filter Template for Growing Nanowires

    02 Dec 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Francis Nguyen

    This lab is designed to help students understand the electro-plating process of growing nanowires. This experiment will use an electro-plating process to transfer metal ions in a solution to a template to produce nanowires. The electric field in the solution carries these ions and deposits them...

  14. How Dry am I? Exploring Biomimicry and Nanotechnology

    01 Dec 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Elizabeth Davenport, Nancy Healy

    Through a series of activities, students will explore superhydrophobic properties of materials. This inquiry based lesson leads them through activities that has them compare and contrast physical properties of superhydrophobic coated materials with uncoated materials. In the process they will...

  15. Synthesis and Stability of Silver Nanoparticles

    01 Dec 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Brandi Childress

     The purpose of this experiment is to conduct synthesis of silver nanoplates and explore their shape stability that affects optical property (referred to as localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR). Students will learn about the differences in physical properties and behavior at the...

  16. An Easy (Bake) Approach to an Edible NanoLab

    01 Dec 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Joseph Nunn

    The purpose of the lesson is to get young students interested in basic nanotechnology  concepts associated with creating “wafers” used in chip fabrication in cleanrooms.  Cleanrooms are used to make nanoscale devices with the most common ones being chips used in electronic...
