[Illinois] Using Photonic Crystals to Enhance SERS Signals for Early Detection of Prostate Cancer
29 Jan 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Caitlin Race
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer for men, and the second leading cause of death due to cancer in men. Currently, the most common screening method aims to detect high levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in blood. Our research has shown the potential for both better prostate...

Micromechanics of Polycrystals: Full-field Computations and Second-order Homogenization Approaches
30 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Ricardo Lebensohn
In the first part of this talk we will present a spectral formulation based on crystal plasticity and Fast Fourier Transforms (FFT) for the determination of micromechanical fields in plastically-deformed 3-D polycrystals. This formulation, pioneered by Suquet and coworkers as a fast algorithm to...
Solar Cells Lecture 4: What is Different about Thin-Film Solar Cells?
29 Aug 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam
Thin film solar cells promise acceptable efficiency at low cost. This tutorial examines the device physics of thin-film solar cells, which generally require a different type of analysis than crystalline solar cells.

Levitated Spinning Graphene
18 Jan 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Bruce E. Kane
I will describe a method for levitating micron-sized few layer graphene flakes in a quadrupole ion trap. Starting from a liquid suspension containing graphene, charged flakes are injected into the trap using the electrospray ionization technique and are probed optically.
