Application-driven Co-Design: Using Proxy Apps in the ASCR Materials Co-Design Center
31 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Jim Belak
Computational materials science is performed with a suite of applications that span the quantum mechanics of interatomic bonding to the continuum mechanics of engineering problems and phenomenon specific models in between. In this talk, we will review this suite and the motifs used in each of...
Micromechanics of Polycrystals: Full-field Computations and Second-order Homogenization Approaches
30 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Ricardo Lebensohn
In the first part of this talk we will present a spectral formulation based on crystal plasticity and Fast Fourier Transforms (FFT) for the determination of micromechanical fields in plastically-deformed 3-D polycrystals. This formulation, pioneered by Suquet and coworkers as a fast algorithm to...
Particle Simulations of Ion Generation and Transport in Microelectromechanical Systems and Micropropulsion
29 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Venkattraman Ayyaswamy
The first part of the talk deals with use of the PIC method with Monte Carlo collisions (MCC) between electrons and the ambient neutral gas to develop models to predict charge accumulation, breakdown voltage, etc. for various ambient gases, gap sizes, cathode material, and frequency of applied...
[Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: Materials Science vs. Metastasis
09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Daniel A. Heller
Metastasis, the spread of cancer cells from a primary tumor to seed secondary tumors in distant sites, is one of the greatest challenges in cancer treatment today. For many patients, by the time cancer is detected, metastasis has already occurred. Over 80% of patients diagnosed with lung cancer,...
Magnesium Phyllo (Organo) Silicate: A Clay to Play with in Materials Science
24 Apr 2012 | | Contributor(s):: M. Eswaramoorthy
The synthesis and applications of amino functionalized clay will be discussed in this talk. The tailor made clay containing amino pendants is easily dispersible in water. This property has been effectively utilized to make water soluble clay-metal nanoparticles composites, clay-protein and...
Malvern Instruments Workshop: Nano-particle Characterization Symposium
11 Apr 2012 | | Contributor(s):: James Leary
The key focus of the symposium is to demonstrate how different analytical techniques provide the information needed to advance nanotechnology.

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...
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.
Theoretical studies of rolled-up and wrinkled nanomembranes
20 Feb 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Cendula
PhD thesis along with additional movie files.
Changes of Structural and Hydrogen Desorption Properties of MgH2 Indused by Ion Irradiation
17 Jan 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Sandra Kurko
Changes in structural and hydrogen desorption properties of MgH2 iduced by ion irradiation have been investigated. MgH2 powder samples have been irradiated with 45 keV B3+ and 120 keV Ar8+ions, with ion fluence 1015 ions/cm2. The effects of ion irradiation are estimated by numerical calculations...
