Potassium Channels: Conduction, Selectivity, Blockage, Inactivation, and Gating
03 Nov 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Benoit Roux, NCN SLC@Northwestern
The determination of the structure of the KcsA K+ channel from Streptomyces lividan has made it possible to investigate the function of a biological channel at the atomic level. Because of its …
The Limits of CMOS Scaling from a Power-Constrained Technology Optimization Perspective
17 Oct 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): David J. Frank
As CMOS scaling progresses, it is becoming very clear that power dissipation plays a dominant role in limiting how far scaling can go. This talk will briefly describe the various physical effects …
24 Feb 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Greg Snider
Nanoelectronic architectures at this point are necessarily speculative: We are still evaluating many different approaches to fabrication and are exploring unconventional devices made possible at the …
Information Theory and Cell/Nanoparticle Modeling
03 Mar 2005 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Peter J. Ortoleva
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 …
Autonomic Adaptation of Virtual Distributed Environments in a Multi-Domain Infrastructure
11 Jul 2006 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Ryan Riley, Dongyan Xu
