Today's Scientific Scenario and Tomorrow's Challenges: The Case for India
09 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: C.N.R. Rao
It is instructive and useful to examine the state of science in the country after 60 years of independence. What one sees is a curious mixture of successes and disappointments, and yet, one cannot but marvel at the great imagination of Pandit Nehru and the Parliament for having committed India...

High-Aspect-Ratio Micromachining of Titanium: Enabling New Functionality and Opportunity in Micromechanical Systems Through Greater Materials Selection
18 Jun 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Masa Rao
Traditionally, materials selection has been limited in high-aspect-ratio micromechanical applications, due primarily to the predominance of microfabrication processes and infrastructure dedicated to silicon. While silicon has proven to be an excellent material for many of these applications, no...
BNC Annual Research Review: Thin-Film Electronics using Nanowire Transistors
06 Jun 2008 | | Contributor(s):: David Janes
This presentation is part of a collection of presentations describing the projects, people, and capabilities enhanced by research performed in the Birck Center, and a look at plans for the upcoming year.
Ionic Selectivity in Channels: complex biology created by the balance of simple physics
05 Jun 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Bob Eisenberg
An important class of biological molecules—proteins called ionic channels—conduct ions (like Na+ , K+ , Ca2+ , and Cl− ) through a narrow tunnel of fixed charge (‘doping’). Ionic channels control the movement of electric charge and current across biological membranes and so play a role in...

Birck Nanotechnology Center Annual Research Review: 2008
The Second Annual Birck Nanotechnology Center Research Symposium was held onApril 14, 2008 in Purdue's Discovery Park. Along with poster presentationsby graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, several areas of strengthwere highlighted in the overview presentations made available here....
04 Jun 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Ian Appelbaum
"Electronics" uses our ability to control electrons with electric fields via interaction with their fundamental charge. Because we can manipulate the electric fields within semiconductors, they are the basis for microelectronics, and silicon (Si) is the most widely-used semiconductor for...
Nanoscale Opto Thermo Electric Energy Conversion Devices
28 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Ali Shakouri
We review solid-state devices that allow direct conversion of heat into electricity. We describe fundamental and practical limits of conventional thermoelectric materials. Novel metal-semiconductor nanocomposites are developed where the heat and charge transport are modified at the atomic level....

"Ab Initio" Theory of Novel Micro and Nanolasers
19 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: A. Douglas Stone
While the laser is one of the most important inventions of the past century and one of the most interesting and controllable non-linear systems in physics, there is surprisingly little predictive theory of lasing properties. Predicting lasing thresholds and output power far above threshold in...
Linear and Nonlinear Optical Devices Based on Slow Light Propagation: Figures of Merit
19 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Jacob B. Khurgin
Performance of optical delay lines and nonlinear devices based on slow wave propagation in photonic crystal waveguides in the presence of higher order dispersion is analyzed and compared with other slow light schemes, such as coupled resonators, media with electromagnetically-induced...
Nano Carbon: From ballistic transistors to atomic drumheads
14 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Paul L. McEuen
Carbon takes many forms, from precious diamonds to lowly graphite. Surprisingly, it is the latter that is the most prized by nano physicists. Graphene, a single layer of graphite, can serve as an impenetrable membrane a single atom thick. Rolled up into a nanometer-diameter cylinder--a carbon...
