IWCE 2015 presentation.

In order to spread from the primary tumor to distant sites, cancer cells must undergo a coordinated change in their phenotypic properties referred to as the "epithelial-to-mesenchymal" transition. We have studied the nonlinear genetic circuits that are responsible for this...

Vetria L. Byrd is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Graphics Technology (CGT) in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute. She holds a PhD in Computer Science,...

This presentation will introduce the fundamental principle of nanogenerator and its potential applications.

In this talk, I will briefly discuss the MLWF approach and compare it to DFT and atomistic tight binding. Initial results using the MLWF approach for 2D material based devices will be discussed and compared to experiments. These results unveil systematic band structure changes as functions of...

Graphene, a two-dimensional (2D) material shows remarkable optical and electronic properties, such as a linear energy dispersion, chirality and half-integer quantum Hall effect. Multilayer graphene flakes, held together by weak van der Waals forces have also attracted attention due...

The act of measurement has profound consequences on a quantum system. As such, the evolution of a quantum system can be influenced and even controlled through the continuous measurement of its properties. I will describe our studies on such measurement-induced dynamics in systems ranging from...

In this talk, I review our latest theoretical and experimental results concerning QE coupling to localized and propagating SP modes. In particular, influence of gap SP resonators on the decay rate of closely located QEs and different decay contributions are discussed as well as the dynamics...

Second-generation biofuels will be derived from lignocellulosic biomass using biological catalysts to convert the carbon in plant cell wall polysaccharides to ethanol or other biofuels. The Center for Direct Catalytic Conversion of...

To support the design of high-speed air vehicles, a number of scientific challenges must be addressed in the prediction and control of supersonic and hypersonic flow. The present talk focuses on two main themes: large-scale unsteadiness and plasma-based flow control.

n this talk, I will describe our efforts to uncover the microscopic processes that govern thermal transport by phonons. In particular, I will describe how our advances in computation and experiment have enabled the first direct measurements of thermal phonon transmission coefficients at solid...

This presentation consists of two parts, which together will provide some perspective on the future of using magnetic insulators in spintronics. The first part will touch on the feasibility of using magnetic insulators, in particular, Y_{3}Fe_{5}O_{12} and...

Material characterization is an important aspect for various applications. In particularly, for 2D materials and nano-materials, the surface characterization becomes crucial for smart material design, functionalization, fabrication, etc. Surface Analysis Facility at Birck Nanotechnology...
