  1. Tutorial 2: A Bottom-Up View of Heat Transfer in Nanomaterials

    23 Mar 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Timothy S Fisher

    This lecture provides a theoretical development of the transport of thermal energy by conduction in nanomaterials. The physical nature of energy transport by two carriers—electrons and phonons--will be explored from basic principles using a common Landauer framework. Issues including the quantum...

  4. 2010 Nano-Biophotonics Summer School @ UIUC Lecture 2 - 2D/3D Fourier transforms & Electromagnetic fields/ Lorentz-Drude model

    25 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gabriel Popescu

    So far, we have discussed Fourier transformations involving one-dimensional functions. Of course, in studying imaging, the conceptmust be generalized to 2D and 3D functions. For example, diffraction and 2D image formation are treated efficiently via 2D Fouriertransforms, while light scattering...

  7. 2010 Nano-Biophotonics Summer School @ UIUC Lecture 4 - Gaussian beam propagation - Elastic light scattering - Dynamic light scattering

    25 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Gabriel Popescu

    Often, experiments involve light beams. A light beam can be defined as a distribution of field that fulfills the approximation in Eq. 20,i.e. is characterized by a dominant wave vector component, k(z) >> k(x) , k(y) . A beam is, therefore, the spatial equivalent of quasimonochromaticlight, where...
