NEMO5 Tutorial 5A: Devi ce Simulation - Quantum Dots
17 Jul 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Jean Michel D Sellier
This presentation introduces the capabilities of NEMO5 to simulate quantum dots.
NEMO5 Tutorial 3: Models
This tutorial presents the models implemented in NEMO5. A description on how the solvers interact with each other is reported along with the options of the various solvers. An example on how to make a simulation that involves strain calculations, Schroedinger wave functions calculations and an...
The Pioneers of Quantum Computing
19 Nov 2010 | | Contributor(s):: David P. Di Vincenzo
This talk profiles the persons whose insights and visions created the subject of quantum information science. Some famous, some not, they all thought deeply about the puzzles and contradictions that were apparent to the founders of quantum theory. After many years of germination, the confluence...
Nano*High: Nature's Nasty Nanomachines: How Viruses Work, and How We Can Stop Them
25 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Carolyn R. Bertozzi
The birth and growth of nanotechnology is only a few decades old, whereas Nature has been building nano-machines for millennia. Viruses are marvels of natural nano-engineering, but can pose a problem for human health. To combat these nano-machines, scientists are turning to recent developments...
Nano*High: X-rays, Lasers, and Molecular Movies
25 Sep 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Roger W. Falcone
X-ray imaging is an excellent method to make visible what would normally be invisible - who hasn't had an X-ray at the doctor or dentist's office before? At the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, the Advanced Light Source is a gigantic X-ray imaging machine. Dr. Roger Falcone discusses X-ray...

X-ray Diffraction and Reflectivity Analysis of Thin Films and Nanomaterials
29 Dec 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Mauro Sardela
A review of x-ray analysis techniques applied to the characterization of nanomaterials will be presented with focus on x-ray lab source instrumentation similar to the facilities available at the Birck Nanotechnology Center. Practical aspects of data acquisition and interpretation using x-ray...
Metal Oxide Nanowires as Gas Sensing Elements: from Basic Research to Real World Applications
out of 5 stars
21 Sep 2009 | | Contributor(s):: andrei kolmakov
Quasi 1-D metal oxide single crystal chemiresistors are close to occupy their specific niche in the real world of solid state sensorics. Potentially, the major advantage of this kind of sensors with respect to available granular thin film sensors will be their size and stable, reproducible and...
Energy and Nanoscience A More Perfect Union
29 Mar 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Mark Ratner
Huge problems of energy and sustainability confront the science/engineering community, mankind, and our planet. The energy problem comes in many dimensions, including supply, demand, conservation, transportation, and storage. This overview will stress the nature of these problems, and offer a...
How Chemical Engineers Will Save the World
26 Mar 2009 | | Contributor(s):: William F. Banholzer
The world is facing massive challenges brought on by population growth, economic meltdowns, and environmental constraints. Scientific solutions are needed now more than ever. In this seminar, an overview of certain mega trends is presented – emphasizing how the skills possessed by chemical...
Microstructural Design of Electrically Active Materials and Devices Through Computational Modeling: The OOF Project
20 Jan 2009 | | Contributor(s):: R. Edwin Garcia
We present an overview of a public domain program, the Object Oriented Finite Element analysis (OOF), which predicts macroscopic behavior, starting from an image of the microstructure and ending with results from finite element calculations. The program reads an image (or a sequence of images)...

MPI for the Next Generation of Supercomputing
05 Dec 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Andrew Lumsdaine
Despite premature rumours of its demise, MPI continues to be the de facto standard for high-performance parallel computing. Nonetheless, supercomputing software and the high-end ecosystem continue to advance, creating challenges to several aspects of MPI. In this talk we will review the design...
Nanoparticle and Colloidal Simulations with Molecular Dynamics
05 Dec 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Steve Plimpton
Modeling nanoparticle or colloidal systems in a molecular dynamics (MD) code requires coarse-graining on several levels to achieve meaningful simulation times for study of rheological and other manufacturing properties. These include treating colloids as single particles, moving from explicit to...
