Circuits on Cellulose: From Transistors to LEDs, from Displays to Microfluidics on Paper
14 Feb 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Andrew Steckl
In this lecture I will review the use of cellulose-based paper as a material in a variety of electronic (and related) applications, including transistors, light emitting diodes, displays, microfluidics. Paper is a very attractive material for many device applications: very low cost, available in...
New Frontiers in Terahertz Technology
13 May 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Mona Jarrahi
In this talk, I will describe some of our recent results on developing fundamentally new terahertz electronic/optoelectronic components and imaging/spectrometry architectures to mitigate performance limitations of existing terahertz systems.
[Illinois] Multi-function Semiconductor Membranes with Nanopore for Bio-Molecule Sensing and Manipulation
17 Dec 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Jean-Pierre Leburton, Anuj Gridhar
In the recent years there has been a tremendous interest in using solid-state membranes with nanopores as a new tool for DNA and RNA characterization and possible sequencing. Among solid-state nanoporous membranes the use of mono-layer graphene is particularly attractive because of its electric...
[Illinois] Microcapsules for Luminescent Tracking and Controlled Drug Delivery
16 Dec 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Yulia Maximenko
Polyelectrolyte microcapsules are formed on porous calcium carbonate templates that are impregnated and coated with 2.9 nanometer luminescent silicon nanoparticles. The complexes are characterized in suspension as well as in thin films using fluorescence microscopy, optical microscopy, and x-ray...

[Illinois] Biosensing Summer Series 2010
14 May 2013 |
July 12 – July 23, 2010 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-ChampaignVenue: Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory (MNTL)Advances in informatics, nanotechnology, and deeper understanding of biological systems have provided new opportunities to make fundamental advances in sensing and dynamic...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Impedance Based Sensors II
10 Apr 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, we start off with a light review of the nanopore sequencing method which is based upon having a carefully bioengineered pore that can induce different changes in charge blockages as different base pairs go through...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Lumerical Optical Simulation
In this lecture, we looked at lumerical optical simulation. The motivation to pursue this topic is because there is now software available that allows us to conduct simulations to visualize Electromagnetic field locations, to...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Fluorescence I
In this lecture, we discussed Fluorescence molecules and how they can be used for detection of other molecules. The molecules are considered to have high energy states, which helps them with their detection. The photons discussed...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Fluorescence II
In this lecture, we start with a revision of the common organic dyes and the photostability and quenching concepts. Quenching is then discussed in more detail and the difference between self-quenching and external quenching....
[Illinois] ECE 416 Optical Sensors II
27 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Cunningham
In this lecture, there is a review of the previous lecture of SPR Sensors along with Reflection Interference Spectroscopy. We learned that as we go to longer wavelengths, the refractive index is more constant. Then, we looked at...
[Illinois] ECE 416 Optical Sensors III
In this lecture, we finished our discussion over optical sensors. We started with discussing a photon moving between 2 mirrors with 100% efficiency, the photon gets to "sample" the media between the mirrors with no loss. This was...
