[Illinois] ECE 416 Optical Sensors II
27 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, there is a review of the previous lecture of SPR Sensors along with Reflection Interference Spectroscopy. We learned that as we go to longer wavelengths, the refractive index is more constant. Then, we looked at...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Optical Sensors III
In this lecture, we finished our discussion over optical sensors. We started with discussing a photon moving between 2 mirrors with 100% efficiency, the photon gets to "sample" the media between the mirrors with no loss. This was...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Impedance Based Sensors I
In this lecture, we were introduced to the concept of a new sensor called the impedance-based Biosensor. Biomolecules are originally charged and therefore there is a need to determine the charge of the molecule before using it on...
[Illinois] Bionanotechnology Seminar Series Fall 2012: Mechanical Property Characterization for 3D Collagen Cancer Cell Cultures
08 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Yue Wang
The tumor microenvironment is mechanically modified during cancer progression. Imaging of tumor mechanical environment will provide new information for early cancer diagnosis. However, it is less clear how the mechanical environment is tuned in cancer. The goal of this study is to understand...
[Illinois] PHYS466 2013 Lecture 12: Constraints
08 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: David M. Ceperley
[Illinois] PHYS466 2013 Lecture 13: Random Number Generators
[Illinois] PHYS466 2013 Lecture 9: Correlations II
[Illinois] ECE 416 Optical Sensors I
06 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, we begin our discussion of Optical Biosensors. We start off by showing the general properties of optical biosensors besides the SPR. Then, we shift our attention to the improvements made to the SPR Sensor's...
[Illinois] PHYS466 2013 Lecture 10: Dynamics
06 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: David M. Ceperley
[Illinois] PHYS466 2013 Lecture 8: Correlations I
06 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: David M. Ceperley, George Daley
[Illinois] PHYS466 2013 Lecture 7: Atomic Potential
04 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: David M. Ceperley
[Illinois] ECE 416 Mass Transport II
26 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, we look at the mass transfer coefficient of association and dissociation rates of molecules on the biosensor and off of it. Having a flow cell speeds it up, but the molecules must get through a stagnant layer to...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Bio Structure/Function II + Mass Transport I
In this lecture, the roles of antibodies and their structures are elaborated on from the last lecture. Then, there is a revision of DNA and RNA: the structure, the base pairs, the different nucleotides and the hydrogen bonds'...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Assay Formats
In this lecture, assays, which is the most widely used technique to detect molecules on surfaces are discussed. In the direct assays, there is a "labeled assay" method and a "label-Free Assay" method. The Label-Free Assay method...
[Illinois] Bioengineering Seminar Series
08 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s)::
Bioengineering combines the analytical and experimental methods of the engineering profession with the biological and medical sciences to achieve a more detailed understanding of biological phenomena and to develop new techniques and devices. The engineer's quantitative and analytical approach;...
[Illinois] Center for Agricultural, Biomedical, and Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology (CABPN) 2012
CABPN is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Center. Its mission is to conduct industry-relevant fundamental research, enhance graduate education and research, and to facilitate technology transfer to industry.-From the CABPN website
[Illinois] ECE 416 Bio Structure/Function I
07 Feb 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, we are given the structure of the protein, its function, role and potentials to the field of biosensors. The parts of the amino acids that make up the proteins are discussed along with bonds and reactions in order...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Bioselective Layers
In this lecture, the four different immobilization methods of capture molecules are discussed: Adsorption, Covalent Bonding, Entrapment, and Membrane Confinement. These methods provide the different ways molecules can become...
