Re-engineering a Healthy Eye Tissue to Restore Damaged Eyesight
06 Aug 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Margarita Shalaev
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye disease that is the leading cause of blindness in the USA and Western Europe. It affects over one million people in the United States alone. One of...
Biosensing applications of Plasmon Resonance in gold nanoparticles
06 Aug 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Karina Moore
Light can be used to excite plasmon resonance in gold nanoparticles. Plasmon resonance occurs on the nanoscale as the particles become excited and plasmon oscillations arise in each particle of a...
26 Jun 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): David D. Nolte
While single-molecule detection through fluorescence has now become common-place, there has been no analogous single-molecule capability using direct detection approaches such as interferometry. ...
On the Cross Roads of Biology and Nanotechnology – Selective DNA Nanopore Sensors
01 Jun 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Samir Iqbal

biological molecules with the potential of characterizing biological
processes at the most fundamental levels can significantly...
Charge Transfer Across an Energy Transducing Integral Membrane Protein Complex
31 May 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): William A. Cramer
The cytochrome bc complexes of the mitochondrial respiratory and photosynthetic electron transport chains are hetero-oligomeric integral membrane proteins. These proteins are responsible for most...
Nanotechnology: Considerations for Facility Design
21 May 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): John Weaver
The growing area of study broadly termed nanotechnology provides a
new set of challenges to the facility designer. While evolutionary
changes in the quality of clean spaces occur, it is the...
From Research to Learning in Chemistry through Visualization and Computation
21 May 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Eric Jakobsson
Modern chemistry research and high school chemistry education are separated by institutional and geographical boundaries. As such, much of secondary chemistry education is still based on the...
