Random Lasers
19 May 2006   Contributor(s):: Mikhail A. Noginov
Random lasers are the simplest sources of stimulatedemission without cavity, with the feedback provided by scattering in a gain medium. First proposed in the late 60’s, random lasers have grown to a large research field.This lecture reviews the state of the art of random lasers,provides an...

A Gentle Introduction to Nanotechnology and Nanoscience
13 Feb 2006   Contributor(s):: Mark Ratner
While the Greek root nano just means dwarf, the nanoscale has become a giant focus of contemporary science and technology. We will examine the fundamental issues underlying the excitement involved in nanoscale research  what, why and how. Specific topics include assembly, properties,...

Active Photonic Nanomaterials: From Random to Periodic Structures
06 Feb 2006   Contributor(s):: Hui Cao
Active photonic nanomaterials, which have high gain or large nonlinearity, are essential to the development of nanophotonic devices and circuits. In this talk, I will provide a review of our recent research activities related to the fabrication of active photonic nanomaterials and the...

Plasmonic Nanophotonics: Coupling Light to Nanostructure via Plasmons
03 Oct 2005   Contributor(s):: Vladimir M. Shalaev
The photon is the ultimate unit of information because it packages data in a signal of zero mass and has unmatched speed. The power of light is driving the photonicrevolution, and information technologies, which were formerly entirely electronic, are increasingly enlisting light to communicate...

Nanotechnology 501 Lecture Series
22 Feb 2005   Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck (editor), Mark Lundstrom (editor), Joseph M. Cychosz (editor)
Welcome to Nanotechnology 501, a series of lectures designed to provide an introduction to nanotechnology. This series is similar to our popular lecture series Nanotechnology 101, but it is directed at the graduate students and professionals.

Curriculum on Nanotechnology
27 Jan 2005 
To exploit the opportunities that nanoscience is giving us, engineers will need to learn how to think about materials, devices, circuits, and systems in new ways. The NCN seeks to bring the new understanding emerging from research in nanoscience into the graduate and undergraduate curriculum....
