Thermoelasticity of the Self Organisation and Biological Function of Composite Cell Membranes
30 Nov 2010 | Contributor(s):: Erich Sackmann
Erich Sackmann is considered to be the founder of biophysics in Germany. At the beginning of his academic career, he dedicated himself to the photophysics of organic crystals as well as the physics and uses of liquid crystals. Afterwards, he focused his interest on the physical basis of...
Translational Research in Nano and Bio Mechanics
18 Nov 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Ken P. Chong
One of the most challenging problems is the integration and interface between wet (biological) and dry (structural) materials. Nano and bio science and engineering is one of the frontiers in transformative and translational research. The transcendent technologies include nanotechnology,...

Nano-enabled Biological Tissues
11 Oct 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Bradly Alicea
Tissue engineering is a new and vast frontier. Nanotechnology, along with other disciplines, can contribute to the development of novel innovations not previously possible. This slideshow is one person's opinion on how this field should move forward.The introduction given a short overview on how...
Nano*High: Nature's Nasty Nanomachines: How Viruses Work, and How We Can Stop Them
25 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Carolyn R. Bertozzi
The birth and growth of nanotechnology is only a few decades old, whereas Nature has been building nano-machines for millennia. Viruses are marvels of natural nano-engineering, but can pose a problem for human health. To combat these nano-machines, scientists are turning to recent developments...
2010 Nano-Biophotonics Summer School @ UIUC Lecture 2 - 2D/3D Fourier transforms & Electromagnetic fields/ Lorentz-Drude model
25 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gabriel Popescu
So far, we have discussed Fourier transformations involving one-dimensional functions. Of course, in studying imaging, the conceptmust be generalized to 2D and 3D functions. For example, diffraction and 2D image formation are treated efficiently via 2D Fouriertransforms, while light scattering...

2010 Nano-Biophotonics Summer School @ UIUC Lecture 4 - Gaussian beam propagation - Elastic light scattering - Dynamic light scattering
Often, experiments involve light beams. A light beam can be defined as a distribution of field that fulfills the approximation in Eq. 20,i.e. is characterized by a dominant wave vector component, k(z) >> k(x) , k(y) . A beam is, therefore, the spatial equivalent of quasimonochromaticlight, where...

Illinois iOptics Lecture 1: Super Accuracy and Super-Resolution of Molecular Motors and Ion Channels
15 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Paul R Selvin
The standard diffraction limit of light is about 250 nm, meaning that you cannot "resolve" objects closer than this distance. Despite this, we have come up with a method to measure individual biomolecules with 1.5 nm spatial localization in x-y plane and 1-500 msec temporal resolution, using a...
