Illinois 2012: Societal Implications of Nanotechnology in Addressing Grand Global Challenges
04 Apr 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Irfan S. Ahmad
Nanotechnology has been heralded by some as a savior of humanity, while the naysayers have advocated placing a moratorium on nanotechnology research. Global challenges in areas of water, energy, health, and environment derive hope from nanotechnology for providing novel solutions. There are now...
Illinois BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Fall 2011: Mechanotransduction at Cell-Cell Contact
04 Apr 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Hamid Tabdili
Differential adhesion between cadherin subtypes expressed on cell surfaces is postulated to direct cell segregation during tissue morphogenesis. The studies described here used magnetic twisting cytometry and traction force microscopy to test the impact of cadherin binding selectivity on...

Carbon Nanotube (CNT) Pulmonary Toxicity Data Set
14 Mar 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Jeremy M Gernand
This data set contains the collected in vivo pulmonary toxicity results contained in 18 published studies conducted between 2004 and 2011 with single- and multi-walled carbon nanotubes. These data include characterization measurements of the CNT samples as well as observed animal toxic responses...
Surface structure and composition of high-surface-area molybdenum nitrides
02 Feb 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Demczyk, j. G. Choi, L. T. Thompson
In this work, we have employed high-resolutiontransmission electron microscopy coupled with Fourier analysis, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy todetermine the near-surface structures and compositions of a series of molybdenum nitride catalysts.
Evolution of microstructure and magnetic properties in magnetron-sputtered CoCr thin films
02 Feb 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Demczyk
In this work, transmission electron microscopy, including the Lorentz mode is combined with magnetic measurements (vibrating sample magnetometry and ferromagnetic resonance)to draw correlations between the structural and magnetic constituents in cobalt-chromium films of increasing thickness.
Measurement of Twin Misorientation by use of First Order Laue Rings in CBED Patterns
30 Jan 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Demczyk, D. E. Laughlin
This work describes a novel microdiffraction technique, utilizing a fine electron probe to gauge twin misorientation at the nanoscale.
