    11 Oct 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Pedro Antonio Prieto

    The CENTER OF EXCELLENCE FOR NOVEL MATERIALS (CENM) is part of a high-priority national effort supported primarily by COLCIENCIAS and integrated by 19 recognized multidisciplinary research groups from 10 universities across Columbia.

  3. Nanotechnology Activities in Colombia: A Perspective From the Excellence Center for Novel Materials

    11 Oct 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Pedro Antonio Prieto

    I will present the current state of R & D in the fields of condensed matter, novel materials, and nanotechnology in Colombia. I will initially consider Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) to then visualize individual developments, as well as those for the region as a whole in these fields of...

  5. Anisotropic magnetoresistance in colossal magnetoresistive La1-xSrxMnO3 thin films

    03 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Jeng-Bang (Tony) Yau

    We report on magnetic field and temperature dependent measurements of the anisotropic magnetoresistance (AMR) in epitaxial La1-xSrxMnO3 (LSMO) thin flms. While in 3d ferromagnetic alloys increasing the magnetization, either by reducing the temperature or increasing the magnetic field, increases...

  9. Surface Characterization Studies of Carbon Materials: SS-DNA, SWCNT, Graphene, HOPG

    16 Feb 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Dmitry Zemlyanov

    In this presentation examples of surface characterization studies of carbon specimens will be presented. (1) In particularly, the systematic XPS (X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy) characterization of graphene grown on the SiC surface will be reported. This work demonstrates a use for XPS to...

  10. X-ray Diffraction and Reflectivity Analysis of Thin Films and Nanomaterials

    29 Dec 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Mauro Sardela

    A review of x-ray analysis techniques applied to the characterization of nanomaterials will be presented with focus on x-ray lab source instrumentation similar to the facilities available at the Birck Nanotechnology Center. Practical aspects of data acquisition and interpretation using x-ray...

  11. 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...

  12. Functional Graded Materials architectures applied at nanoscale: thin PVD nanograded and layered coatings

    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...

  13. 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.

  14. Pulsed Laser Deposition of Thin Films

    02 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Josh Kaufman

    Thin metal films have many applications from optical limiters to nanocircuits. Methods for fabricating these films differ in theory and complexity. Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) is a popular method for fabricating thin films. A number of thin films were fabricated using PLD. Silver films of...
