  1. Plasmon-resonant Nanorods as Multifunctional Imaging Agents

    28 Dec 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Alexander Wei

    Gold nanorods have several outstanding characteristics as optical contrastagents for biomedical imaging. Their strong optical absorption atnear-infrared (NIR) frequencies can be used to generate contrast for opticalcoherence tomography (OCT) imaging, and is well matched for detectionmodalities...

  2. Information Theory and Cell/Nanoparticle Modeling

    03 Mar 2005 | | Contributor(s)::

    Physico-chemical models of cells and nanoparticles are being developed for pure and applied studies. Nanoparticles are simulated by a Poisson-Boltzmann equation (for determining the electric force field in bioelectrolyte media) while an all atom-simulator is used to determine structure. Both...

  3. Three-Dimensional Simulations of Field Effect Sensors for DNA Detection

    03 Aug 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Eddie Howell, Gerhard Klimeck

    Here, the development of a DNA field-effect transistor (DNAFET) simulator is described. In DNAFETs the gate structure of a silicon on insulator (SOI) field-effect transistor is replaced by a layer of immobilized single-stranded DNA molecules which act as surface probe molecules. When...

  4. Chemical Modification of GaAs with TAT Peptide and Alkylthiol Self-Assembled Monolayers

    03 Aug 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Hamsa Jaganathan

    The use of self-assembled monolayers (SAM) on semiconductors creates a basis for the design and creation of bioelectronics, such as biosensors. The interface between the surface and an organic monolayer can change significant electrical and physiochemical properties of a biological device....

  5. DNA Nanowires

    06 Aug 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Margarita Shalaev

    DNA is a relatively inexpensive and ubiquitous material that can be used as a scaffold for constructing nanowires. Our research focuses on the manufacturing of DNA-templated, magnetic nanowires. This is accomplished by synthesizing positively-charged metal nanoparticles that self-assemble along...

  6. Nanotubes and Nanowires: One-dimensional Materials

    17 Jul 2006 | | Contributor(s)::

    What is a nanowire? What is a nanotube? Why are they interesting and what are their potential applications? How are they made? This presentation is intended to begin to answer these questions while introducing some fundamental concepts such as wave-particle duality, quantum confinement, the...

  7. Vector Free Energy Calculation with Adaptive Biasing Force

    18 Jun 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Eric F Darve

    This presentation discusses recent numerical methods to calculate thefree energy as a function of a reaction coordinate for bio-molecules.Free energy is often called potential of mean force and represents theeffective potential experienced by a generalized coordinate for abio-molecular system....

  8. Engineering Nanomedical Systems

    06 Mar 2006 | | Contributor(s):: James Leary

    This tutorial discusses general problems and approaches to the design of engineered nanomedical systems. One example given is the engineering design of programmable multilayered nanoparticles (PMNP) to control a multi-sequence process of targeting to rare cells in-vivo, re-targeting to...
