P-N Semiconductor Membranes for Ion Filtering and Rectification
06 Apr 2008 | | Contributor(s)::
Jean-Pierre Leburton's research at the Beckman Institute deals with transport and optical processes in semiconductor nanostructures such as quantum wires and quantum dots that exhibit a high degree of quantization dependent on the semiconductor materials and geometrical confinement. This...

Illinois Physics 498: Introduction to Biological Physics
We will apply simple yet powerfulideas of physics to gain some understanding of biology. (What is theinertia of a bacteria and how does this affect its behavior?) We willbegin with atoms, move to molecules, then macromolecules, then cells,and finally whole systems. For example, how do we see?...

Using Mass Spectrometry to Understand Membrane Organization
28 Mar 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Mary Kraft
Our ability to engineer tissues and biomimetic devices hinges upon an understanding of the structure-function relationship in healthy and diseased cells. Our laboratory utilizes materials characterization, quantitative engineering principles, cell biology and chemistry to elucidate the influence...

Ion Selectivity in Synthetic and Natural Channels
31 Mar 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Susan Rempe
Transport across membranes and nanopores can be characterized by static equilibrium properties as well as by nonequilibrium dynamic properties. For example, equilibrium selectivity properties of a nanopore can be characterized by the difference in interaction free energy for transferring one ion...
Modeling (Semi) Unstructured Proteins
26 Mar 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Michael Colvin
The past century has seen tremendous progress in determining the biochemical and biophysical processes that constitute life. One exciting consequence of this understanding is the possibility of developing mathematical models of biological function that are accurate and even predictive. My...
The Functional Protocell concept
23 Mar 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Jakobsson
We have invented and created the first prototype of the Functional Protocell.We define the “functional protocell" as a nanoporous solid surrounded by a membrane. The cavities in the solid can be filled with any desired electrolyte up to the limit of solubility. The surrounding membrane can...
