Biosensing applications of Plasmon Resonance in gold nanoparticles
02 Aug 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Karina Moore
Light can be used to excite plasmon resonance in gold nanoparticles. Plasmon resonance occurs on the nanoscale as the particles become excited and plasmon oscillations arise in each particle of a pair of metal nanoparticles. There is plasmon coupling between the neighboring particles as the...
Electronics from the Bottom Up: an educational initiative on 21st century electronics
17 Aug 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom, Supriyo Datta, Muhammad A. Alam
In the 1960’s, a group of leaders from industry and academia, recognized that the age of vacuum tubes was ending and that engineers would have to be educated differently if they were to realize the opportunities that the new field of microelectronics presented. The Semiconductor Electronics...
