    Cellular material that exhibits phase transformations provide a variety of applications from the construction of medical casts to car bumpers. Materials with multiple phases are able to experience a multitude of loading and unloading forces. How the materials reacts is in part due to its...

  4. Bubble Production as a Function of Voltage and Frequency, Duty Cycle 0.5

    27 Aug 2018 | Animations | Contributor(s): Shourya Jain, Li Qiao

    An experimental study was conducted to confirm the occurrence of combustion inside nanobubbles. These nanobubbles were produced from short-time (< 2000 μs) water electrolysis by applying high-frequency alternating sign square voltage pulses (1-500 kHz), which resulted in...

  5. Combustion in Nanobubbles (generated from water electrolysis)

    27 Aug 2018 | Presentation Materials | Contributor(s): Shourya Jain, Li Qiao

    A long-pursued goal, which is also a grand challenge, in nanoscience and nanotechnology is to create nanoscale devices, machines and motors that can do useful work. However, loyal to the scaling law, combustion would be impossible at nanoscale be- cause the heat loss would profoundly dominate...

  6. Thin Films

    27 Aug 2018 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Nano-Link

    In this module, students will learn about the optical properties of thin films. Students will perform an experiment where they will apply a thin film to a piece of card stock paper. The students can then observe the optical properties of the thin film.

  7. Unit Cells and Crystal Structures

    27 Aug 2018 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Nano-Link

    In this module students create a saturated solutions using Borax and sodium acetate. Upon drying, each crystal will have a different shape. The shape at the macro level is driven by the arrangement of atoms. This repeating arrangement of atoms – which defines a crystal structure – is...

  8. Phase Transforming Cellular Materials (Spherical Shells)

    27 Aug 2018 | Presentation Materials | Contributor(s): Valeria Grillo, ASHLEY MIN, Gavin Carter, Yunlan Zhang, Kristiaan William Hector, David Restrepo Arango, Chidubem Nuela Enebechi, Pablo Daniel Zavattieri, Nilesh Mankame

    “Phase transforming cellular materials (PXCMs) are a class of materials whose unit cells exhibit multiple configurations (metastable or bistable) [1]. The geometrical structure of the PXCM can change to increase the energy absorbed. The hysteretic nature of the PXCM makes the potential...

  9. Ionization Potential of Small Molecules Using DFT

    27 Aug 2018 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Alejandro Strachan

    Use DFT simulations to explore the ionization potential (energy required to remove an electron) in atoms and small molecules. Disclaimer: While very powerful, DFT makes well known approximations and the results obtained in this module are approximate. 

  10. Re-Engineering Computing For Next Generation Autonomous Intelligent Systems: Devices, Circuits, and Algorithms

    27 Aug 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Kaushik Roy

    Advances in machine learning, notably deep learning, have led to computers matching or surpassing human performance in several cognitive tasks including vision, speech and natural language processing. However, implementation of such neural algorithms in conventional "von-Neumann"...
