In This Series

  1. Overview and Applications of the Object Oriented Finite Element Analysis (OOF2)

    18 Feb 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): R. Edwin García

    Edwin Garcia is an associate professor of Materials Engineering who is interested in the application of theoretical and computational materials science to understand the relations between material properties and microstructure. His research places special emphasis on establishing analytical...

  2. Some Lessons on Entrepreneurship in Nanotechnology (and, Mechanical Engineers do 'nano', too)

    18 Feb 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Timothy S Fisher

    Professor Tim Fisher will talk about his brief excursion into starting (and stopping) a company, with a focus on lessons learned that are related to education and academic research. He will also try to convince a likely skeptical audience that mechanical engineers have something valuable to...

  3. Lessons From Nanoelectronics

    10 Dec 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Supriyo Datta

    This talk is about a less-appreciated by-product of the microelectronics revolution, namely the deeper understanding of current flow, energy exchange and device operation that it has enabled, which forms the basis for what we call the bottom-up approach.

  4. Plastic Deformation at the Nanoscale

    11 Sep 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Marisol Koslowski

    To model the deformation of metallic materials at micron and submicron scales a continuum theory of dislocations is derived. We will introduce the MicroMechanics Simulation Tool and the NanoPlasticity Lab. Both tools are dislocation mechanics simulations for the prediction of plastic deformation...

  5. Introduction to Molecular Dynamics

    11 Sep 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Alejandro Strachan

  6. Low Temperature Plasmas: A Foundation for Future Technologies

    28 Aug 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Sergey Macheret

  7. Along for the Ride: Reflections on the Past, Present, and Future of Nanoelectronics

    25 Jun 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom

  8. A Crash Course in Nanophotonic Simulations

    18 Jun 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Peter Bermel

    This seminar will cover rapid, scalable computational methods used in simulating optical reflection,transmission, and absorption in complex structures. After a brief survey of the tools available, the S4 simulation tool will be demonstrated in detail.

  9. Introduction to Molecular Dynamics

    21 Apr 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Alejandro Strachan

    This short presentation will describe the idea behind MD simulations and demonstrate its use in real applications.

  10. Overview of Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM)

    10 Sep 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Ron Reifenberger

    An introductory talk about scanning probe microscopes (SPMs) at the undergraduate level to explain what an SPM does and how it functions.

  11. Implantable Networks of Wireless Nanoelectronic Devices

    20 Aug 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Pedro Irazoqui

  12. Quantum Dots: Artificial Atoms & Molecules in the Solid-State

    01 Aug 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Rajib Rahman

    In this lecture, I will describe how quantum dots are similar to atoms in the periodic table, with the exception that these artificial atoms can be engineered to suit the needs of various applications. Starting from the quantum mechanics of the Hydrogen atom, I will describe two simple models...

  13. Non-Conjugated Radical Polymers as an Emerging Class of Transparent Conductors for Flexible Polymer Thermoelectric Applications

    21 Jul 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Bryan W. Boudouris

    Thermoelectric devices are capable of converting low-value waste heat energy into higher value electricity in a silent, direct manner and without the need for moving parts. As such, they present themselves as promising, environmentally-friendly energy conversion modules. Polymer-based...
