  1. Magnon-Mediated Interlayer Coupling and Spin-Transfer Torques

    09 Jul 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Ran Cheng

    In this talk we propose a magnonic analog of spin‐valve composed of insulating ferromagnet/antiferromagnet/ferromagnet trilayer. We find that magnons inside the antiferromagnetic spacer can mediate an effective exchange coupling between the two ferromagnets similar to the RKKY interaction.

  2. Designing Functional Polymers for Water Purification and Flexible Electronic Applications

    09 Jul 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Bryan W. Boudouris

  3. nanoHUB in a Nutshell: Delivering New Paradigms in Education and Research

    09 Jul 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck

    Gordon Moore’s 1965 prediction of continued semiconductor device down-scaling and circuit up-scaling has become a self-fulfilling prophesy in the past 50 years. Open source code development and sharing of the process modeling software SUPREM and the circuit modeling software SPICE were two...

  4. Massively Parallel Sensing of Molecules with Mid-infrared Frequency Combs

    03 Jul 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Konstantin L. Vodopyanov

    Mid-infrared spectroscopy offers supreme sensitivity for detection of trace gases, solids and liquids, based on specific for this spectral region telltale vibrational bands. I will present a new platform for mid-infrared spectroscopy, based on a pair of mutually coherent and broadband frequency...

  5. p-bits for Probabilistic Spin Logic (PSL): A Brief Introduction

    02 Jul 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Supriyo Datta

    In this talk we present a brief introduction of  our recent work where we have introduced a concept that is intermediate between bits and q-bits, namely a probabilistic bit or p-bit that fluctuates randomly between 0 and 1. ...

  6. Your Career Choices: A Perspective from 24 years in Industry, National Laboratory, and Academia and The Most-Neglected Item in your Career Development

    02 Jul 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck

    What are your career choices with a BS, MS, or PhD? Will you develop technology yourself? Will you work in a team? Will you guide people? Where will you work: in industry, research lab, or academia?

  7. Nanotechnology & Internet of Things

    28 Jun 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Ali Shakouri

  8. Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Research at Purdue University

    28 Jun 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Carl Wassgren

    In this talk I will present an overview of some of the pharmaceutical manufacturing research at Purdue University.  The talk will focus primarily on solid dosage form drug product manufacturing, including various unit operations and continuous manufacturing.  The talk will also...

  9. Catching Light Rays: Making Light Work at Nanoscale for Faster Communication, Denser Data Storage, Energy and BioMedical Applications

    25 Jun 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Alexandra Boltasseva

    Optics has revolutionized how we communicate, harvest energy, do computation and diagnose illness. Novel optical technologies fueled by nanophotonics “squeeze” electromagnetic radiation into tiny areas much smaller than the wavelength of light.

  10. Fracture Behavior (with Cheese!)

    21 Jun 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Jessica Anne Krogstad

    This presentation introduces fracture behavior of materials with historical context.  Several common fracture mechanisms are introduced in the context of fracture surfaces.   We also provide examples of common testing configurations relevant to the companion lab...

  11. From Driven Systems to Topological Quantum Machines: 2d Floquet and Topological Energy Pumping

    21 Jun 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Gil Refael

    In my talk I will show how applying multiple periodic drives to a quantum system could increase its dimensionality, and may even realize a multidimensional topological phases for zero-dimensional systems. Particularly, a spin-1/2 particle, driven by two elliptically-polarized light beams could...

  12. Quantum Effects in Electromagnetics and Computational Electromagnetics

    20 Jun 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Weng Cho Chew

    In this talk, we begin by discussing quantum effects related to electromagnetics, such as spontaneous emission, Casimir force, quantum transport in devices, and quantum dissipations. Many of these effects have strong bearing on the future of quantum technology development. ...
