CHM 696 Lecture 14: Semiconductor Nanoparticles, Nanorods, and Nanowires: Properties and Applications I
02 Jun 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Alexander Wei
CHM 696 Lecture 15: Semiconductor Nanoparticles, Nanorods, and Nanowires: Properties and Applications II
Computational Investigation of Point Defect Formation and Migration in Nuclear Fuels
08 Mar 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Susan Sinnott
The stabilities of selected fission products are investigated as a function of stoichiometry in uranium oxide. The approach is density functional theory (DFT) that is used to calculate the incorporation and solution energies of solid and gaseous fission products at the anion and cation vacancy...
Computational Mathematics: Role, Impact, Challenges
out of 5 stars
20 Dec 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Juan C. Meza
This presentation was one of 13 presentations in the one-day forum, "Excellence in Computer Simulation," which brought together a broad set of experts to reflect on the future of computational science and engineering.
Density Functional Theory: A great physics success story
01 Mar 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Kieron Burke
Density functional theory began with the work of Thomas and Fermi, at about the same time as Schroedinger wrote his famous equation. I will explain in general terms what density functional theory is and describe some problems of current interest.
Design, Fabrication, and Characterization of 3D Hollow Ceramic Nano-Architectures
06 Dec 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Dongchan Jang
In this work, we present a new design criterion capable of significantly abating strength degradation in lightweight materials, by successfully combining size-induced strengthening effect in nanomaterials with architectural design of cellular porous materials. Hollow-tube-based 3D ceramic...
Designing Nanocomposite Materials for Solid-State Energy Conversion
10 Nov 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Timothy D. Sands
New materials will be necessary to break through today's performance envelopes for solid-state energy conversion devices ranging from LED-based solid-state white lamps to thermoelectric devices for solid-state refrigeration and electric power generation. The combination of recent materials...
Designing Nanocomposite Thermoelectric Materials
08 Nov 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Timothy D. Sands
This tutorial reviews recent strategies for designing high-ZT nanostructured materials, including superlattices, embedded quantum dots, and nanowire composites. The tutorial highlights the challenges inherent to coupled electronic and thermal transport properties.
Development of the ReaxFF reactive force fields and applications to combustion, catalysis and material failure
29 Jul 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Adri van Duin
This lecture will describe how the traditional, non-reactive FF-concept can be extended for application including reactive events by introducing bond order/bond distance concepts. Furthermore, it will address how these reactive force fields can be trained against QM-data, thus greatly enhancing...

DragonflyTV Nano – Using the Power of Television to Introduce Middle School Children to Nanotechnology
15 Jan 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Richard Hudson, Joan Freese, Angie Prindle, Lisa Regalla
DragonflyTV is a PBS science series for children, broadcast nationwide and on the internet. DragonflyTV models authentic science inquiry through its unique approach: In each episode, ordinary kids conduct their own inquiry-based investigations, modeling the inquiry process and communicating the...
Dripping, Jetting, Drops and Wetting: the Magic of Microfluidics
13 Jun 2007 | | Contributor(s):: David A. Weitz
This talk will discuss some of the new opportunities That arises by precisely controlling fluid flow and mixing using microfluidicdevices. I describe studies to elucidate mechanisms of drop formation and use these to create new fluid structures that are difficult to achieve with my other method....
