What is a nanowire? What is a nanotube? Why are they interesting and what are their potential applications? How are they made? This presentation is intended to begin to answer these questions while introducing some fundamental concepts such as wave-particle duality, quantum confinement, the electronic structure of solids, and the relationship between size and properties in nanomaterials.

This new course will give students hands-on experience with popular computational materials science and engineering software through a series of projects in: electronic structure calculation (e.g., VASP), molecular simulation (e.g., GROMACS), phase diagram modeling (e.g., Thermo-Calc), finite element modeling (e.g., OOF2), and materials selection. The course will familiarize students with a broad survey of software tools in computational materials science, scientific computing, and...

In this talk I will focus on our efforts to creatively exploit the unique properties of nano-structured III-nitride materials for novel light emitters and detectors in the currently under-developed near- and far-infrared ranges. Due to large electron effective mass, the nitride intersubband materials require the ability to fine-tune the atomic structure at an unprecedented sub-nanometer level. I will describe our work to understand, model, and control the fundamental underpinnings of light generation and electrical transport in nitride nanostructures.

The goal of this short course is to provide an introduction to the theory and algorithms behind MD simulations, describe some of the most exciting recent developments in the field and exemplify with a few applications applications. The series also includes a tutorial on the nanoMATERIALS simulation tool, an online MD simulation tool available at the nanoHUB. This provides users with a hands-on experience with MD simulations and enables further exploration of some of the concepts described in the lectures.

Predictive semiconductor device simulation faces a challenge these days. As devices are scaled to nanoscale lengths, the collision-dominated transport equations used in current device simulators can no longer be applied. On the other hand, the use of a better, more accurate Boltzmann Transport Equation (BTE) is hampered by the fact that it is a complicated integro-differential 6-dimensional kinetic equation and is extremely difficult to solve. Previous works on solving the BTE have used either …

AHard Day in the Life of a Soft Cell With every beat of the heart, inflation of the lung, or peristalsis of the gut, cell types of diverse function are subjected to substantial stretch. But what physical laws govern the abilities of the cytoskeleton to deform, contract, and remodel at the nanoscale? New data support the idea that the cytoskeleton is at once a crowded chemical space and a fragile soft material in which the effects of biochemistry, molecular crowding, and physical forces are …
