  1. How Chemistry Records the History of People and Products

    23 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gabriel Bowen

    I know what you did last summer... and where you were and what you ate and what you drank.

  2. Nano*High: From Atoms to Electricity: An Introduction to Nuclear Power, Its Promise and Challenge

    02 Feb 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Brian D. Wirth

    Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Nano*High. Professor Brian Wirth from the UC Berkeley Dept. of Nuclear Engineering presents the basics of nuclear science, and discusses the technological challenges involved in generating nuclear power and dealing safely with the by-products.

  3. How Chemical Engineers Will Save the World

    26 Mar 2009 | | Contributor(s):: William F. Banholzer

    The world is facing massive challenges brought on by population growth, economic meltdowns, and environmental constraints. Scientific solutions are needed now more than ever. In this seminar, an overview of certain mega trends is presented – emphasizing how the skills possessed by chemical...

  4. nano-Materials Simulation Toolkit Quick Demo

    18 Oct 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandro Strachan

    Demonstraton of the nanoHUB tool "nano-Materials Simulation Toolkit."

  5. Dynamics on the Nanoscale: Time-domain ab initio studies of quantum dots, carbon nanotubes and molecule-semiconductor interfaces

    31 Jan 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Oleg Prezhdo

    Device miniaturization requires an understanding of the dynamical response of materials on the nanometer scale. A great deal of experimental and theoretical work has been devoted to characterizing the excitation, charge, spin, and vibrational dynamics in a variety of novel materials, including...

  6. Introduction to and Advances in Self-Healing Polymers

    14 Jun 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Gerald O. Wilson

    The presenter briefly introduces the topic of Self-Healing Polymer research and continues to give a Survey of Ruthenium Metathesis Catalysts for Ring Opening Metathesis Polymerization-Based Self-Healing ApplicationsGerald O. Wilson is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Materials Science...

  7. Simple Harmonic Oscillator

    15 Feb 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Heng Li

    One of the most important model systems in quantum mechanics because a wide variaty of physical situations can be reduced to it either exactly or approximately. In particular, a system near an equilibrium configuration can often be described in terms of one or more harmonic oscillators....

  8. Particle in a Box

    15 Feb 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Heng Li

    The particle in a box (or the infinite potential well) is a simple idealized system that is completely solved within quantun mechanics. The infinite potential well is a finite sized region in space (the box) with an infinite potential at its boundaries ( the wells). A particle experiences no...

  9. Teaching approaches for including nanotechnology and other current topics in the undergraduate curriculum: Context, inquiry and authentic science practice

    02 May 2006 |

    Topics in nanotechnology and nanoscience are unlikely to be found to any great extent in traditional instructional materials, including textbooks and laboratory manuals. While this may change in the future, it would be useful for today's undergraduate classroom to make use of teaching approaches...
