  4. Writing Your First Verilog-A Compact Model

    13 Mar 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Geoffrey Coram

    This talk is directed at device engineers and researchers who need a SPICE-compatible compact model. The assumption is that you understand the physics of the device, you have a set of equations that describe the terminal characteristics, but you’ve never written a compact model before. Some...

  5. [Illinois] Synergistic Assembly of All-carbon Nanoscopic p/n Junctions

    13 Mar 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Vincent C. Tung

    All-carbon based photovoltaics comprised of n-type fullerenes and p-type single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are tantalizing candidates for light-harvesting and storage because of the advantageous carrier transport properties and improved mechanical/chemical stability. However, fullerenes...

  6. Green's Function for Heat Conduction in a Slab X55 with Type 5 Boundary Condtions

    10 Mar 2014 | Papers | Contributor(s): Donald E. Amos

    The Green's function is the principal tool in construction of the general solution to the classical heat conduction problem. The solution is presented in terms of the internal heat generation, initial temperature and integrals which reflect the physical influence of the boundary. In the current...

  7. mage:ic:kinetics1 - Diffusion in 1D and 3D

    10 Mar 2014 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Michael L. Falk

    This module guides students through two analyses of diffusion problems using the COMSOL finite element software. Students are then asked to use what they have learned to guide the design of a drug delivery device.Disciplinary Goals: Understand mass transport in 1D and 3D, effects of boundary...

  8. ME 592 Lecture 06: Introduction to Image Analysis

    07 Mar 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Steve Wereley

  9. Quantum-Assisted Magnetometry with NV Centers in Diamond

    07 Mar 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Chinmay Belthangady

    In my talk I will discuss how NVs can be used to measure magnetic fields with very high sensitivity and spatial resolution using techniques known from NMR and atomic physics. A key factor that limits sensitivity is decoherence caused by interactions between NV spins and other paramagnetic spin...

  10. Sequencing a Genome by a Torrent of Ions: How an Old pH-Meter Got Its Groove Back

    11 Apr 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Muhammad A. Alam

    The ability to read the book of life, written in the genome of an organism, has been one of the most exciting development of our time. The first version of human genome was announced circa 2000 and it took a decade of industrial-scale collaboration and billions of dollars of funding. Today, we...

  11. Interference Lithography: Scalable Fabrication of Periodic Nanostructures

    08 Mar 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Chih-Hao Chang

    Periodic nanostructures have many applications in a broad range of research areas such as photonics, surface wetting, and bio-inspired engineering. Based on the interference of light, interference (or holographic) lithography is a maskless technique that is extremely effective way to pattern...

  12. Heat Conduction in a Hollow Cylinder R55T0 and Sub-cases

    08 Mar 2014 | Papers | Contributor(s): Donald E. Amos

    A hollow cylinder is heated on both surfaces with known fluxes which are partly dissipated by conduction into the cylinder, partly lost to the exterior media, and partly stored in boundary layers with only heat capacity. This description of each boundary condition is known as a Type 5 condition...
