  3. [Illinois] Using Photonic Crystals to Enhance SERS Signals for Early Detection of Prostate Cancer

    29 Jan 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Caitlin Race

    Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer for men, and the second leading cause of death due to cancer in men. Currently, the most common screening method aims to detect high levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in blood. Our research has shown the potential for both better prostate...

  7. Micromechanics of Polycrystals: Full-field Computations and Second-order Homogenization Approaches

    30 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Ricardo Lebensohn

    In the first part of this talk we will present a spectral formulation based on crystal plasticity and Fast Fourier Transforms (FFT) for the determination of micromechanical fields in plastically-deformed 3-D polycrystals. This formulation, pioneered by Suquet and coworkers as a fast algorithm to...
