  1. Green's Function for Heat Conduction in a Semi-infinite Medium X50 with a Type 5 Boundary Condition

    01 May 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...

  2. ME 592 Lecture 08: Window Shift and Deformation I

  3. [Illinois] Cooperation and Construction: From Multicellularity to Eusociality

    28 Apr 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Corina Tarnita

    The evolutionary trajectory of life on earth is one of increasing size and complexity. Yet the standard equations of evolutionary dynamics describe mutation and selection among similar organisms that compete on the same level of organization. I will try to outline a mathematical theory that...

  4. [Illinois] Biomaterials to Replicate the Form and Function of Inhomogeneous Structures in the Body

    28 Apr 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Brendan Harley

    The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a complex organization of structural proteins such as collagens and proteoglycans. Understanding that the ECM is dynamic and often spatially patterned or heterogeneous over the length-scale of traditional biomaterials, we are developing instructive biomaterials...

  5. [Illinois] Plasmonic Engineering in Nanomedicine

    28 Apr 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Srikanth Singamaneni

    Plasmonics involves the control of light at the nanoscale using surface plasmons. One particular area where plasmonics is expected to make an enoromous impact is the field of life sciences, with applications in bioimaging, biosensing, and targted and externally-triggered therapy. In the first...

  6. Active Nanophotonics: From Coherent Control of Quantum Emitters to Plasmonic Nanolasers

    28 Apr 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Ken Shih

    Light-matter interaction at nanometer scale is emerging as one of the most exciting fields in nanoscience. In combination with the advanced materials synthesis technique to tailor novel low-dimensional electronic systems, new doors are open toward design and realization of nanophotonic devices...

  9. First-Year Engineering Students' Communication of Nanotechnology Size & Scale in a Design Challenge

    22 Apr 2014 | Papers | Contributor(s): Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Yi Kong, Heidi A Diefes-Dux, Krishna Madhavan

    While nanotechnology is a highly engaging topic for students, it entails concepts that are difficult to understand and need to be carefully considered when incorporating nanotechnology into classroom instruction. The notion of size and scale (also referred to as a “big idea” in learning...

  14. Insight into Time-Resolved Photoluminescence Measurements on Thin-film Solar Cells using Numerical Simulations

    09 Oct 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Ana Kanevce

    Increased efficiency in thin-film solar cells requires higher degree of understanding of the recombination mechanisms, and separating the various types of recombination involved. Time resolved photoluminescence (TRPL) measurement is a contactless and quick measurement method, and therefore one...

  15. Strain Engineering of 2D Crystals

    08 Oct 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Bennett Goldberg

    Two-dimensional materials are flexible, transparent, compatible with living systems, and can enable new devices and physics based on their unique properties. One unique property is the ability of 2D crystals a single atom thick to undergo massive amounts of strain without failure. Since strain...

    11 Apr 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Paul G. Constantine

    Science and engineering models typically contain multiple parameters representing input data---e.g., boundary conditions or material properties. The map from model inputs to model outputs can be viewed as a multivariate function. One may naturally be interested in how the function changes as...
