Surprises on the nanoscale: Plasmonic waves that travel backward and spin birefringence without magnetic fields
08 Jan 2007 
As nanonphotonics and nanoelectronics are pushed down towards the molecular scale, interesting effects emerge. We discuss how birefringence (different propagation of two polarizations) is manifested and could be useful in the future for two systems: coherent plasmonic transport of nearfield...

The Novel Nanostructures of Carbon
28 Feb 2008   Contributor(s):: Gene Dresselhaus
A brief review will be given of the physical underpinnings of carbon nanostructures that were developed over the past 60 years, starting with the electronic structure and physical properties of graphene and graphite, and then moving to graphite intercalation compounds which contained the first...

Thermoelectric Nanotechnology
27 Jul 2010   Contributor(s):: Mark Lundstrom
his talk is an undergraduate level introduction to the field. After a brief discussion of applications, the physics of the Peltier effect is described, and the Figure of Merit (FOM), ZT, which controls the efficiency of a thermoelectric refrigerator or electric power generator, is discussed. The...
