[Illinois] Genetic Engineering for Nisin Diffusion and Tool Walkthrough
30 Jul 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Asha Kirchhoff
In this video Illinois Bioengineering student Asha Kirchhoff discusses the fundamentals behind the Biomedical Engineering Society's Nisin Diffusion experiment and setup for Engineering Open House. She also provides a walkthrough for the Nisin Diffusion tool hosted here at Nanohub.org.
Why quantum dot simulation domain must contain multi-million atoms?
11 Jan 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad Usman
The InGaAs quantum dots obtained from the self-assembly growth process are heavily strained. The long-range strain and piezoelectric fields significantly modifies the electronic structure of the quantum dots. This imposes a critical constraint on the minimum size of the simulation domain to...

Ripples and Warping of Graphene: A Theoretical Study
08 Jun 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Umesh V. Waghmare
We use first-principles density functional theory based analysis to understand formation of ripples in graphene and related 2-D materials. For an infinite graphene, we show that ripples are linked with a low energy branch of phonons that exhibits quadratic dispersion at long wave-lengths. Many...
Nanoelectronic Modeling Lecture 22: NEMO1D - Motivation, History and Key Insights
07 Feb 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gerhard Klimeck
The primary objective of the NEMO-1D tool was the quantitative modeling of high performance Resonant Tunneling Diodes (RTDs). The software tool was intended for Engineers (concepts, fast turn-around, interactive) and Scientists (detailed device anaysis). Therefore various degrees of...
