  1. Nikita Arnold Seminar

    Electrodynamic description of a spaser: shape, size, modes, minimal threshold and saturation A spaser is a nano-optical light generator utilizing plasmonic modes of metallic nano-particles (NP). Its similarities with the conventional laser are discussed within an electrodynamic framework. Methods to decrease the threshold for optical pumping by varying the NP shape, size, and spasing modes are considered. Universal dependences, figures of merit, and the role of saturation are illustrated...

    Some details about the event.

  6. Solar Seminar Series featuring Graham Nathan

    The seminar will describe the advantages of directly integrating concentrating solar thermal with combustion and auto thermal gasification processes for liquid fuels production and power generation. It will also outline three novel classes of technology to achieve this, namely a hybrid solar receiver combustor for application in high temperature cavity receivers, in twin-bed hybrid solar gasification, which offers increased syngas yield and quality relative to conventional auto-thermal...

  7. Pierre-Emmanuel Gaillardon Seminar

    Exploiting unconventional physical properties, several nanodevices showed an alternative to Moore’s Law by the increase of their functionality rather than the pure scaling. Innovative device behaviors transduce to new circuit/architecture opportunities. In the field of nanoelectronics, a technology-design co-integration approach is necessary. Such approach simultaneously covers the design of the technology and the application circuits, in order to jointly adapt them to the targeted...
