  1. [Illinois] Advanced Materials Characterization Workshop 2015

    19 Aug 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Ted Limpoco, Scott Speakman, Timothy P. Spila, Rick Haasch, Justin Masone, Kathy Walsh, Matthew Bresin

     AMC 2015 provided a critical, comparative and condensed overview of major analytical techniques for materials characterization with emphasis on practical applications. Lectures covered basic and advanced topics geared towards both novice and experienced scientists.Sessions focused on...

  2. Iterative Solution Method for an Implicit Orbit Averaged Particle-in-Cell Model

    18 Aug 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Benjamin Sturdevant

    Present kinetic simulations of turbulence in magnetized plasmas employ models from gyrokinetic theory, which is based on a number of ordering assumptions used to reduce the Vlasov-Maxwell system to eliminate high frequency phenomena. Recently, a second order accurate, implicit particle-in-cell...

  3. Multilevel Solvers for High Resolution Electric Field Calculations

    18 Aug 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Andrew Reisner

    High fidelity electric field calculations are a critical component in plasma simulations. In this this talk we consider the problem of a dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) wherein the electric field is calculated to support a compressible flow, thus requiring a highly efficient global solve. The...

  4. Optimal Order Multigrid Preconditioners for Linear Systems Arising in the Semismooth Newton Method Solution Process of a Class of Control-Constrained Problems

    18 Aug 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Andrei Draganescu

    In this work we present a new multigrid preconditioner for the linear systems arising in the semismooth Newton method solution process of certain control-constrained, quadratic distributed optimal control problems. Using a piecewise constant discretization of the control space, each semismooth...

  7. [Illinois] Integration of Quantum Dot Nanoparticles with Multimodal Microspheres for PET and Cerenkov Luminescene Imaging of Cancer

    18 Aug 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Joanne Li

    Cerenkov luminescence (CL) imaging utilizes the photons emitted during radioactive decay when charged particles travel faster than the phase velocity of light in a dielectric medium. In this talk, I will present a novel agent to convert and increase CL emission at longer wavelengths using...
