  4. Solar Seminar Series - Rakesh Agrawal

    Thin Film Solar Cells from Nanocrystal Inks of Quaternary Chalcogenides The creation of a suitable inorganic colloidal nanocrystal ink for use in a scalable coating process is a key step in the development of low-cost thin film solar cells. We have developed an innovative method of using copper indium gallium disulfide (CIGS) nanocrystals as the building block for the fabrication of bulk CIGSSe thin films. The CIGS nanocrystal ink solution is applied directly on various substrates to form...

  5. Jaime Marian Seminar

    Plastic localization in irradiated ferritic systems: new insights from modeling and simulation Low temperature irradiation of crystalline materials is known to result in hardening and loss of ductility, which limits the usefulness of candidate materials in harsh nuclear environments. In bcc metals, this mechanical property degradation is caused by the interaction of in-grown dislocations with irradiation defects, particularly small dislocation loops resulting from the microstructural...

  6. Dohun Kim Seminar

    Electronic Transport in BisSe3Thin Films in the Topological Insulator Regime The 3D topological insulators (TIs) have an insulating bulk but metallic surface states stemming from band inversion due to strong spin-orbit interaction, whose existence is guaranteed by the topology of the band structure of the insulator. Like graphene, the STI surface state generically has a Dirac electronic spectrum with massless electrons and a vanishing bandgap at a Dirac point. In this talk, I will discuss...

  7. Center fo Scient of Information talks and poster session

    David Tse, UC Berkeley Title:  Optimal Whole Genome Shotgun Assembly: From Simple Models to Complex Data Tuesday, December 04, 2012 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm EST LWSN 1142 Professor Tse will speak on using information theory approaches in DNA sequencing focused on two basic questions: what is the minimum read length and the minimum number of reads required for reliable reconstruction? What is an optimal assembly algorithm that achieves the minimum? He will describe the basis of...

  8. Dr. Tahira Reid Seminar

    Studies on Human Judgments and their Impacts on Engineering Design Decisions Engineers have the unique opportunity to provide design solutions to a variety of problems in our society. However, when it comes to problems that require an understanding of the social or psychological aspects of a solution, we are limited by the traditional engineering paradigm. Colleagues in the social sciences have developed a number of quantitative tools that have proven to be effective in assessing consumer...

  9. Steve Christensen Seminar

    Using an ICME approach for composite materials development in aerospace

  10. Muhammad Shoaib Arif PhD Defense

    HIGH-Q AND WIDELY TUNABLE ALL-SILICON RESONATORS AND FILTERS FOR MICROWAVE AND MILLIMETER-WAVE APPLICATIONS The concept of a single portable communication device that can support a variety of wireless standards has been implemented for several years now. Presently, this is achieved by integrating multiple radios into a single device. The rapidly increasing demand of incorporating new standards with the existing RF front-end architecture has greatly increased the design complexity, cost,...

  11. David Giedroc Seminar

    Transition Metal Homeostasis in Bacterial Pathogens: Structure and Mechanism All prokaryotes encode a panel of metal sensor or metalloregulatory proteins that govern the expression of genes that allows an organism to quickly adapt to toxicity or deprivation of both biologically essential transition metalions, e.g., Zn, Cu, Fe, and heavy metal pollutants. As such, metal sensor proteins can be considered arbiters of intracellular transition metal bioavailability and thus potentially control...

  12. W. Mike Arnold Seminar

    Studies of Particle Size and Aggregation Using a TuneableNanopore Mike Arnold studied Biochemistry, Marine Science and Electronic Engineering Science in the UK.

  14. Stefan Dilhaire Seminar

    Energy Transport in Nano Materials and Nano Objects Energy transport is fundamental to both improving our understanding of basic material properties and advancing the intelligent design of new and more optimally functional materials. Energy transport is mediated by various particles and their subsequent interactions, including electrons, photons, phonons, plasmons, and excitons. The precise nature of any material determines which of these are most important. A more complete understanding...
