Variational Formulation of Stable Discrete k · p Models
25 Jan 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): William R Frensley
IWCE 2015 presentation. the longstanding problem of spurious states in k·: ; p models of semiconductor nanostructures has been shown to be an artifact of the use of the centereddifference approximation to the gradient, and it has been shown that stable models may be constructed on...
Calculation of phonon transmission in Si/PtSi heterostructures
25 Jan 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jung Hyun Oh, Mincheol Shin
In this work we examine the suppression of phonon transport in another example, Si and SiPt heterostructures (3D). This heterostrucure is believed to have the benefit that the electrical conductance can be kept high while the phonon propagation is suppressed due to the large acoustic impedance...
Adding Trapped Molecules to the Quantum Toolkit
25 Jan 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Brian Odom
I will discuss techniques we have developed to optically cool rotations of trapped molecular ions, using a single spectrally shaped broadband laser. I will also discuss our progress toward using this quantum control for molecular coherent manipulation, single-molecule fluorescence imaging,...
nanoHUB@SIU: Pedagogy and Beyond
22 Jan 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Shaikh S. Ahmed
As a postdoctoral researcher at NCN, during the years 2005-7, in addition to usual research activities, I was tasked with working closely with the nanoHUB Team to augment a few pre-existing quantum device simulators, create rappturized user interfaces, and run end-to-end simulations for...
Polymer Synthesis and Characterization in the Cloud: a nanoHUB Classroom Experience
22 Jan 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Coray Colina
In this talk, I’ll share the experience of teaching a junior undergraduate computational course in materials science and engineering, with over 70 participants. Both molecular and continuum methods were studied and applied to relevant materials problems. Students were able to build and...
nanoHUB: Not Just for PhDs

In this introduction to project management, Jon Wright talks to the 2015 NCN SURF students about successfully organizing their summer research project After a brief exercise to establish a common vocabulary, this talk covers high level aspects of project management. Following this level setting...
Plastic Deformation at the Nanoscale
11 Sep 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Marisol Koslowski
To model the deformation of metallic materials at micron and submicron scales a continuum theory of dislocations is derived. We will introduce the MicroMechanics Simulation Tool and the NanoPlasticity Lab. Both tools are dislocation mechanics simulations for the prediction of plastic deformation...
