This lecture series introduces the basic concepts and key topics underlying the interdisciplinary areas of BioMEMS and Bionanotechnology. Advances in this field require the knowledge of polymer processing and soft lithography in addition to knowledge of silicon-inspired fabrication. Since the end goal of these devices and systems is to form sensors for biological and chemical entities, this introduction covers DNA, proteins, microbiology, and microfluidics to equip the listeners\’ deeper engagement in these exciting areas of research.

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 …

In this lecture, we describe the basics of what quantum dots are and how they can be applied to thin film photovoltaic technologies. In particular, we examine the unique properties of quantum dot materials and how these properties can be exploited by scientists and engineers to yield low-cost, light-weight solar modules capable of converting sunlight into electricity in a direct fashion.  Additionally, the basics of solar cell characterization and light absorption are detailed and related to the band gap of quantum dot materials.  Finally, the potential impact of solar technologies on the energy landscape of the United States is discussed.

These are step-by-step instructions for creating simulations of carbon nanostructures: – buckly ball – carbon nanotubes – graphene sheets

These instructions will allow teachers to run simulations that students can use along with, or instead of, building 3D models of structures.

ICME 2008 NAP Report

Authors: Committee on Integrated Computational Materials Engineering, National Research Council

Description:  Integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) is an emerging discipline that can accelerate materials development and unify design and manufacturing. Developing ICME is a grand challenge that could provide significant economic benefit. To help develop a strategy for development of this new technology area, DOE and DoD asked the NRC to explore its benefits and promises, including the benefits of a comprehensive ICME capability; to establish a strategy for development and maintenance of an ICME infrastructure, and to make recommendations about how best to meet these opportunities. This book provides a vision for ICME, a review of case studies and lessons learned, an analysis of technological barriers, and an evaluation of ways to overcome cultural and organizational challenges to develop the discipline.

This report is available as a free download from the National Academies Press.
