Translational Research in Nano and Bio Mechanics
18 Nov 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Ken P. Chong
One of the most challenging problems is the integration and interface between wet (biological) and dry (structural) materials. Nano and bio science and engineering is one of the frontiers in transformative and translational research. The transcendent technologies include nanotechnology,...

Renewable Solar Energy: Has the Sun Finally Risen on Photovoltaics?
10 Apr 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Mark R. Pinto
After a review of the overall renewable energy landscape,including the central role of economics, we present here the case thatPV is on the verge of becoming a major source of electrical powerthrough a principle similar to that which underlies the 50 year progressof IC technology - the reduction...
In Search of the Perfect Semiconductor Photon Detector
out of 5 stars
19 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Y. Yu
Photon detectors have many important applications, such as in heat sensing, digital cameras, solar cells and x-ray and gamma-ray detection. So far, the most common detectors are based on elemental semiconductors , such as Si and Ge. However, they are by no means perfect in tackling some of the...
The Potential of Nanostructured Materials to Address the Challenge of a Sustainable Energy Resource
14 Feb 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mildred S. Dresselhaus
An overview is presented on the grand challenges to the science community in the next few decades in meeting global energy needs for the 21st century. Major advances in our present capabilities will be needed for energy production and storage and for its conversion from one form to another....
