[Illinois] Surface enhanced spectroscopy and chemistry: theoretical studies
13 Jun 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): George C. Schatz
[Illinois] Plasmonics and Its Applications Workshop 2016
25 Apr 2016 | Workshops | Contributor(s): George C. Schatz, Bjorn Reinhard, Jennifer Hollingsworth, Kathy Willets, Jeremy Smith, AbderRahman N Sobh, Jao van de Lagemaat, Amanda Haes, Maiken Mikkelsen, Prashant Nagpal, sayantani ghosh, Emad Tajkhorshid, Nicholas Kotov, Anatoily Pinchuk
The study of plasmonics has been around for several decades now. The study of the interaction between the electromagnetic field and the free electrons in metal have been found as advantageous for applications in devices and more recently, in biological systems. The focus of this workshop will be on the applications of plasmonics to biological and biophysical systems. Renewable And Sustainable Energy Institute (RASEI) at the University of Colorado Boulder...
[Illinois] Silver and Gold Nanoparticles: New Directions for Theory
12 Nov 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): George C. Schatz
George C. Schatz is Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison Professor of Chemistry and of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Northwestern University. Degrees include a B. S. (1971) at Clarkson University and Ph. D. (1976) at Caltech, both in chemistry. He was a postdoc at MIT, and has been at Northwestern since 1976. Schatz has published three books and over 680 papers. Schatz is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Sciences and he is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Physical Chemistry. Awards include Sloan and Dreyfus Fellowships, the Fresenius Award of Phi Lambda Upsilon, the Max Planck Research Award, the Bourke Medal of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Ver Steeg Fellowship of Northwestern University, the Feynman Prize of the Foresight Institute, and the Debye Award of the ACS. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, the American Chemical Society and the AAAS.
Schatz’s research is concerned with theory and computational modeling in a variety of nanoscience topics as well as in related fields of biophysics and materials. His nanoscience work has specialized in the optical properties of noble metal nanoparticles, nanoholes in films and other nanostructured materials of relevance to chemical and biological sensing, solar energy, plasmonic device applications, and plasmon-induced chemistry. He has worked actively in the theory and modeling of the mechanical properties of hard materials, including diamond films, graphene and carbon nanotubes, and in the chemical functionalization of these materials. These studies have involved the development of molecular dynamics/electronic structure methods for modeling chemical reactions surfaces, and electronic structure/classical electrodynamics methods for calculating nanostructure optical properties.

Carbon Nanotube Fracture
Group Wiki Page:
Due to their mechanical properties, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) hold promise as nanoreinforcements in a variety of composites. As a result, numerous theoretical and experimental studies have been performed in order to understand their behavior under axial tension. Whereas quantum mechanical...
Optical and thermodynamic properties of gold metal nanoparticles. Effect of chemical functionalization.
This laboratory is intended to introduce the student to the use of semiempirical electronic structure methods. In particular, the semiempirical methods will be applied to the study of metallic clusters and the interaction of the clusters with discrete molecular systems such as...
Isomerization reactions are very important in vision, as well as in many other chemical processes. When light is adsorbed, the double bond at carbon 11 in retinal (which is bonded to the protein opsin, forming rhodopsin) undergoes a conversion from the cis to the trans configuration. In this...
