  2. Efficient Exploration of Quantified Uncertainty in Granular Crystals

    16 Mar 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Juan Camilo Lopez

    This work presents a way of quantifying uncertainty in granular crystals in a computationally efficient way. To accomplish this, a low dimensional response surface is approximated through the method of active subspaces. Within this framework, special structure within the inputs is exploited to...

  10. Carbon Nanotube Mission

    02 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Adaku Ochia

    Carbon nanotubes have become an interesting phenomenon over the past couple of years as electrical devices and electro-mechanical systems have dramatically shrunk in size. Accidentally discovered by Sumio Iijima while he examined carbon fullerenes, these needle like structures, he later named...

  11. Introduction to Self-Assembled Monolayers and Biosensors

    01 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Michael Toole

    Recent research concerning self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) focuses on tasks from fabrication of microelectronics to creating biosensors. This presentation will address the fundamental principles of self-assembled monolayers, formation and analysis of self-assembled monolayers, the basics of...

  12. Oligodeoxyribonucleotide Association with Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes

    02 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Jennifer McDonald

    Commercially available single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) tend to aggregate as ropes and bundles during production making them of little use in many scientific and industrial applications. An effective technique for dispersing and solubilizing SWCNTs is required to fully utilize their...

  13. Re-engineering a Healthy Eye Tissue to Restore Damaged Eyesight

    02 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Margarita Shalaev

    Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an eye disease that is the leading cause of blindness in the USA and Western Europe. It affects over one million people in the United States alone. One of the symptoms of AMD is a diseased Bruch’s membrane, which is an important layer in the eye. Our...

  14. Direct Microcontact Printing of Gold and Silver on Silicon

    02 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Jamie Nipple

    Because microcontact printing (µCP) allows the fabrication of disposable electronic devices with minimum cost, this technique has proven useful in the patterned functionalization of certain chemicals onto surfaces. In time, µCP should allow for the fabrication of sub-10-nanometer structures and...

  15. Biosensing applications of Plasmon Resonance in gold nanoparticles

    02 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Karina Moore

    Light can be used to excite plasmon resonance in gold nanoparticles. Plasmon resonance occurs on the nanoscale as the particles become excited and plasmon oscillations arise in each particle of a pair of metal nanoparticles. There is plasmon coupling between the neighboring particles as the...

  16. The Effect of Physical Geometry on the Frequency Response of Carbon Nanotube Field-Effect Transistors

    03 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Dave Lyzenga

    In order for carbon nanotube (CNT) electrical devices to be fabricated, it is necessary to obtain modifiable operation characteristics. Developing parametric equations to achieve this controllability in the vertical field-effect transistor (FET) design is an important first step toward...
