A Gentle Introduction to Nanotechnology and Nanoscience
out of 5 stars
13 Feb 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Ratner
While the Greek root nano just means dwarf, the nanoscale has become a giant focus of contemporary science and technology. We will examine the fundamental issues underlying the excitement involved in nanoscale research - what, why and how. Specific topics include assembly, properties,...
A Primer on Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM)
04 Apr 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Ron Reifenberger
Scanning Probe Microscopes and their remarkable ability to provide three-dimensional maps of surfaces at the nanometer length scale have arguably been the most important tool in establishing the world-wide emergence of Nanotechnology. In this talk, the fundamental ideas behind the first scanning...
Active Photonic Nanomaterials: From Random to Periodic Structures
06 Feb 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Hui Cao
Active photonic nanomaterials, which have high gain or large nonlinearity, are essential to the development of nanophotonic devices and circuits. In this talk, I will provide a review of our recent research activities related to the fabrication of active photonic nanomaterials and the development...
AFM Metrology of Cellulose Nanocrystals
21 Mar 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Robert J. Moon, Ryan Wagner
This talk discusses the characterization of cellulose nanocrystals via atomic force microscopy.
Aluminum: a safe, economical, high energy density material for energy storage, transport and splitting water to make hydrogen on demand
29 Mar 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Jerry M. Woodall
In 1968, a team lead by the author discovered that liquid gallium saturated with aluminum at room temperature would split water into hydrogen gas, alumina and heat. More recently his current team has discovered that bulk, solid Al rich alloys will also split water in the same manner. Since 1) the...

Atomistic Alloy Disorder in Nanostructures
26 Feb 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
Electronic structure and quantum transport simulations are typically performed in perfectly ordered semiconductor structures. Bands and modes are defined resulting in quantized conduction and discrete states. But what if the material is fundamentally disordered? What if the disorder is at the...
Bandstructure in Nanoelectronics
01 Nov 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
This presentation will highlight, for nanoelectronic device examples, how the effective mass approximation breaks down and why the quantum mechanical nature of the atomically resolved material needs to be included in the device modeling. Atomistic bandstructure effects in resonant tunneling...
Basics of Particle Adhesion
21 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Stephen P. Beaudoin
This presentation will describe the adhesion of rough, asymmetric particles with micro- to nano-scale dimension to solid surfaces. These adhesion processes are of great interest in microelectronics and pharmaceutical manufacturing. The presentation will include experimental and theoretical and...
Bending Properties of Carbon Nanotubes
21 Mar 2006 | | Contributor(s):: SeongJun Heo, Susan Sinnott
The effect of filling carbon nanotubes on the mechanical, especially bending, behavior of empty and filled (10,10) carbon nanotubes (CNTs) is examined using classical, atomistic, molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. In particular, influences of different filling materials like C60 or other CNT...
