[Illinois] Atomic Engineering of III-V Semiconductor for Quantum Devices, from Deep UV (200 nm) to THZ (300 microns)
03 Mar 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Manijeh Razeghi
Nature offers us different kinds of atoms. But it takes human intelligence to put different atoms together in an elegant way in order to realize manmade structures that is lacking in nature. This is especially true in III-V semiconductor material systems. Guided by highly accurate atomic band...
[Illinois] AVS Meeting 2012: Adsorption and Desorption of Hydrogen on Epitaxial Graphene on SiC(0001): An Ultra-High Vacuum STM Study
04 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: TeYu Chien
With superlative physical, chemical, and electronic properties, graphene shows significant promise in a variety of technologies, including transistors, sensors, and energy conversion/storage devices.However, as an atomically thin material, graphene is highly sensitive to its environment, which...
[Illinois] AVS Meeting 2012: Dielectric Breakdown Study for High Performance, Reliable Top-gated Large-area Graphene Electronics
04 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Vinod K. Sangwan
An ultra-thin top-gate dielectric is essential for high-performance large-scale digital and analog electronics based on graphene field-effect transistors (G-FETs). Atomic layer deposition (ALD) has been utilized to grown top-gate dielectrics for high-performance G-FETs. However, ALD requires a...
[Illinois] AVS Meeting 2012: Photoelectron and Electron Spectro-Microscopy in Liquids and Dense Gaseous Environment Using Electron Transparent Membranes
04 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Andrei Kolmakov
Novel bottom-up designed materials currently constitute the major source of innovations in electronics, optics, energy harvesting/storage, catalysis and bio-medical applications. The performance of these new materials and devices depends on physicochemical processes taking place at the interface...
[Illinois] AVS Meeting 2012: Understanding Atomic-Layer-Deposition Synthesis of Cu 2 ZnSnS 4 Solar Cells
04 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Sergey V. Baryshev
Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) has recently attracted attention as a light absorber for photovoltaic applications because of its band gap (εg≈1.4 eV), the relative abundance and low cost of its constituent elements (which permits large-scale low-cost module production), and its demonstrated...
[Illinois] AVS Meeting 2012: Vacuum Insulation Panels with Tensile Supports to increase the Energy Efficiency of a Building's Envelope
04 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Alan D. Feinerman
Heating and cooling accounts for at least 36% of the energy consumed in the US and in nearly all cases increasing the insulation (R-value) of the thermal barrier will reduce the energy consumed. Space and economic considerations usually limit the insulation in the walls of a building's envelope...

[Illinois] Beckman Director's Seminar - Quantitative Phase Imaging
26 Nov 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Gabriel Popescu
"Ever since the invention of the microscope in the 17th century, it has been observed that live cells are transparent under visible illumination, i.e. they do not absorb (or scatter) light significantly. Thus, a magnified image of cells will generally exhibit low contrast. In order to overcome...
[Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Dispersion-relation Spectroscopy of Intracellular Transport
18 Dec 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Ru Wang
The interior of a living cell is a busy place. Molecular motors move materials along prescribed biopolymer tracks. This sort of active transport is required to rapidly move products over large distances within the cell, where passive diffusion is too slow. Just as understanding the flow of...
