[Illinois] BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Spring 2012: Nanostructured Surface for Enhanced Fluorescence Cell Imaging
13 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Austin Hsiao
We have created a nanostructure substrate on which three-dimensional confocal fluorescence cell-imaging sensitivity is amplified for cell membrane and cytoplasm. The nanostructure substrate was fabricated using a plasma etching technique to create a randomized array of nano-pillars. Confocal...
Functional Graded Materials architectures applied at nanoscale: thin PVD nanograded and layered coatings
out of 5 stars
09 Oct 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Vasco Teixeira
Functionally graded materials (FGM’s) are designed to achieve levels of performance superior to that of homogeneous materials by combining the desirable properties of each constituent phase. FGM’s are composite materials where the composition or the microstructure is locally varied so that a...

Semi-empirical Molecular Orbital calculations.
Heat Transfer across Solid Contacts Enhanced with Nanomaterials
11 Feb 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Timothy S Fisher
This presentation will describe thermal transport processes at solid-solid material interfaces. An overview of applications in the electronics industry will serve to motivate the subject, and then the basic diffusive constriction theory will be developed. The addition of carbon nanotube arrays to...
Understanding Deformation Processes in Nanocrystalline Metals Through the Use of Real-time Electron Microscopy Techniques
03 May 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Stach
It is has long been known that the grain size of a material has a substantial effect on its mechanical strength, through the well-established Hall-Petch relationship. In the past decade or so, there has been a resurgence of interest in this topic resulting from the ability to create metals with...
