Fun in the Sand: Some Experiments in Granular Physics
25 Oct 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Peter E. Schiffer
In the last two decades, condensed matter physicists have begun an intense study of the dynamic and static properties of granular media (materials made from individual acroscopic solid grains). These materials offer a vast arena of new physical phenomena which are highly accessible and largely...
TiCN/TiNbCN Multilayer System with Enhanced Tribological Properties
20 Oct 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Pedro Antonio Prieto
Improvement in the mechanical properties of hard coatings such monolayer (TiN, CrN, AlCN, WC-Co, TiCN) , has been achieved using compositional gradient WC/C layer, or multilayered type [transition metal/transition carbide]n, [transition metal/transition nitride]n, [TiCN/ZrCN]n, among others....

Surface Characterization Studies of Carbon Materials: SS-DNA, SWCNT, Graphene, HOPG
16 Feb 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Dmitry Zemlyanov
In this presentation examples of surface characterization studies of carbon specimens will be presented. (1) In particularly, the systematic XPS (X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy) characterization of graphene grown on the SiC surface will be reported. This work demonstrates a use for XPS to...

Experiment vs. Modelling: What's the problem?
10 Aug 2009 | | Contributor(s):: William L. Barnes
Progress in plasmonics has been greatly assisted by developments in experimental techniques and in numerical modelling. This talk will look at some of the difficulties that emerge when comparisons are made between experiment and theory. Through the use of four examples I will illustrate what some...
MCW07 Exploring Trends in Conductance for Well-Defined Single Molecule Circuits
out of 5 stars
04 Apr 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Mark S Hybertsen
In our recent research, we have been able to measure and characterize the impact of intrinsic molecular properties on the conductance of single molecule circuits formed with amine-gold linkages. In this talk, I will review the experiments and the physical picture of the junction based on the...
Quantitative, Kinetic Models of Cellular Circuits
04 Apr 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Michael R. Brent
Living cells contain complex, analog circuits that regulate the rate at which each gene produces its product. The kinetic properties of these circuits enable cells to respond to changes in their environments and thus to survive, reproduce, and compete. For decades, molecular biologists have been...
The Optical Freqency Comb: A Remarkable Tool for Metrology, Science and Medical Diagnostics
31 Dec 2008 | | Contributor(s):: John L. Hall
The Optical Frequency Comb concept and technology exploded in 1999-2000 from the synthesis of advances in independent fields of Laser Stabilization, UltraFast Lasers, and NonLinear Optical Fibers. The Comb was developed first as a method for optical frequency measurement, enabling a thousand-fold...
Gas Damping of Microcantilevers at Low Ambient Pressures
03 Nov 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Rahul Anil Bidkar
This seminar will present a theoretical model for predicting the gas damping of long, rectangular silicon microcantilevers, which are oscillating in an unbounded gaseous medium with the ambient pressures varying over 5 orders of magnitude (1000 > Kn > 0.03). The work is the result of a...
