  1. Special Seminar: BME Graduate Student Exchange with the University of Michigan

    Engineering a physiologically relevant human on a chip.   Abstract:A physiologically relevant human-on-a-chip would be a powerful tool for drug discovery and screening, disease modeling, and many other applications. Recent studies have been able to recapitulate critical functional and environmental characteristics of individual organs in miniaturized, engineered systems, but how to correctly scale networks of these organs-on-a-chip to form a functional human analog remains an open...

  2. Professor Dana Weinstein Seminar

    RF Solid- State Vibrating Transistors Semiconductor micro-electromechanical (MEM) resonators, with quality factors (Q) often exceeding 10^4 can provide a high performance, low-power, compact CMOS-compatible alternative to electrical components in wireless communication and signal processing. Most electromechanical devices require a release step to freely suspend moving structures, which necessitates costly complex encapsulation methods and back end-of-line processing of large-scale...

  3. Prof. Joseph P Heremans

    Solid-State Thermal Energy Conversion Solid state thermal energy converters are primarily based on thermoelectric materials. The major goal in thermoelectrics research is to simultaneously enhance the thermopower while maintaining a high electrical conductivity, and minimize the thermal conductivity without affecting the electronic properties. We review here three modern physical principles to achieve these goals. Starting with the thermal conductivity of thermoelectric materials, we know...

  4. Dr. Dennis Buss Forum

    A Forum on the Future of Electronics Silicon chips in personal electronics and computers, electronic displays, and the semiconductor lasers used in CD players and for Internet communications, have shaped the world we live in, but will the current paradigm that has driven progress for the past 40+ years continue, or will the 21st Century be a new era of electronics? These questions will be addressed in a seminar by Dr. Dennis Buss followed by a panel discussion with Purdue faculty. ...

  5. Michael J. Demkowicz Seminar

    Design of structural materials using reduced order mesoscalemodels Computational materials science brings a physics-based materials design capability within reach. However, Design of structural materials for strength and stability is challenging because it deals iwth inherently collective mechanisms operating at multiple time and length scales. I will illustrate a design strategy built on reduced order mesoscale models, which afford simplified descriptions of the essential phsyics of...

  9. Prof. S. Srinivasa Murthy Seminar

    SOLID STATE HYDROGEN STORAGE & DELIVERY FOR PORTABLE & MOBILE APPLICATIONS; THERMAL ENGINEERING ASPECTS Efficient, economical, & safe storage & delivery is essential for using hydrogen as a fuel in mobile and portable applications. The thermal design of solid state hydrogen storage devices involves coupled heat and mass transfer with heat generation and chemical reactions. Important design considerations include gravimetric hydrogen storage capacity and charging/discharging...

  10. Prof. Joachim Knoch Seminar

    Tunnel FETs – Device Physics and Realizations In recent years, tunnel field-effect transistors (TFETs) have attracted a great deal of attention for future nanoelectronics devices. The reason for the interest is that TFETs potentially enable a significant reduction of the power consumption of highly integrated circuits. However, to date most of the experimental demonstrations of TFETs exhibit a performance inferior to conventional MOSFETs. Here, the operating principles of TFETs will...

  11. Aaron D. Franklin seminar - "The Road Ahead for Carbon Nanotube Transistors"

    Brief Bio: Aaron Franklin received his Ph.D. from Purdue University in 2008 and his B.S.E. degree from Arizona State University in 2004, both in electrical engineering. Since 2009, he has been a Research Staff Member at IBM's T. J. Watson Research Center working in the area of low-dimensional nanoelectronics. His research focuses on the integration of nanomaterials into electronic devices, including high-performance transistors, thin-film transistors, supercapacitors, and photovoltaic...

  12. Integrated Imaging Seminar - Prof. Jeff Fessler

    Title: Accelerating Image Reconstruction using Variable Splitting Method Abstract:Statistical image reconstruction methods have been used in PET and SPECT commercially for well over a decade and have recently begun to appear commercially in X-ray CT systems, offering the possibility of reducing X-ray dose.  Iterative methods are also poised to impact clinical MRI. Computation time is a significant challenge for iterative image reconstruction methods, particularly in X-ray CT and MRI....

  13. Solar Seminar Series - Dr. Richard Schwartz

    Title: A Partial History of Solar Cell Modeling at Purdue Abstract: There is a long history of the modeling of solar cells at Purdue that has led to the prominence that the work here now enjoys. The early work in this area was not directed at photovoltaic cells as solar cells but as thermophotovoltaic (TPV) cells. This talk will trace the path that was followed from the development and modeling of TPV cells to Interdigitated Back Contact (IBC) cells. We will discuss how this then led to...

  14. Integrated Imaging Seminar - Prof. Daniela Bortoletto

    The Discovery of a New Particle. Is it the Higgs? Abstract: On July 4th 2012 physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s highest-energy proton accelerator, at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland announced the discovery of a new particle that is about 135 times heavier than a proton. This particle seems to closely resemble the Higgs boson that was hypothesized over forty years ago to explain the masses of all elementary particles in the universe. In this talk, I will...

  16. Billy J. "BJ" Stanbery - Solar Seminar Series

    High-rate processing and advanced emitter structures for CIGS PV module manufacturing Achieving both macroscopic homogeneity and nanoscale heterogeneity for non-stoichiometric multinary compounds is a critical challenge for the success of copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) photovoltaic cells.  Co-evaporation yields world record performance, but is also a high-temperature vacuum process that is difficult to scale.  Here, we consider reactive transfer processing (RTP), which has...

  17. Solar Seminar - Kurt R Mikeska

    Crystalline Silicon Solar Cell Metallization Crystalline silicon solar cell technology has advanced by improvements to all aspects of cell design including metallization. Improvements to metal contacts have been synergistic with other cell improvements such as passivation, lightly doped emitters, and boron doped emitters. Recent improvements in metallization contacts have allowed the solar cell industry to move from highly doped emitters (HDE), designed to enable sufficiently low contact...

  19. Integrated Imaging Seminar - Prof. Lawrence Carin

    Title: Coded Aperture Compressive Spectral and Temporal Imaging Abstract:Compressive sensing is a new technology that allows one to acquire data with high information content, based on measurements that are much fewer in number than would be expected by Nyquist theory. This is achieved by leveraging signal models that go beyond signal bandwidth, to exploit the fact that signals of interest typically reside in a low-dimensional subspace. This includes exploitation of concepts like sparsity,...
