  1. Vector Free Energy Calculation with Adaptive Biasing Force

    18 Jun 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Eric F Darve

    This presentation discusses recent numerical methods to calculate thefree energy as a function of a reaction coordinate for bio-molecules.Free energy is often called potential of mean force and represents theeffective potential experienced by a generalized coordinate for abio-molecular system....

  2. Welcoming Remarks

    24 Nov 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandro Strachan

    Opening remarks for the Purdue School on High Performance and Parallel Computing.

  3. What Can the TEM Tell You About Your Nanomaterial?

    26 Feb 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Stach

    In this tutorial, I will present a brief overview of the ways that transmission electron microscopy can be used to characterize nanoscale materials. This tutorial will emphasize what TEM does well, as well where difficulties arise. In particular, I will discuss in an overview manner how...

  4. What is "Nanofluidics"? or The Nano-izing of Fluid Mechanics

    28 Jun 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Steve Wereley

    Micro- and nanoscaled fluid mechanics are rapidly emerging as important supporting fields in biomedical technology, nanotechnology, etc., as well as being important fields of study in their own right. Despite the common use of these terms in the literature, the fluid behavior at these small...

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

    02 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...
