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...
Nanomechanics Simulation Tool: Dislocations Make or Break Materials
16 Mar 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Michael N Sakano
The goal of computational material science is to improve existing materials and design new ones through mathematical calculations. In particular, molecular dynamic simulations can allow for visualization of dislocations in a material, along with its resulting behavior when under stress. For...

2007 Summer Undergraduate Research Intern Program Conference
out of 5 stars
13 Aug 2007 |
The NASA Institute for Nanoelectronics and Computing and NSF Network for Computating Nanotechnology offers qualifying students the opportunity to become Summer Undergraduate Research Interns (SURIs). SURIs join an ongoing cross-disciplinary research project team comprised of faculty and graduate...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Pulsed Laser Deposition of Thin Films
02 Aug 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Josh Kaufman
Thin metal films have many applications from optical limiters to nanocircuits. Methods for fabricating these films differ in theory and complexity. Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) is a popular method for fabricating thin films. A number of thin films were fabricated using PLD. Silver films of...

Characterization of Colloids Using the BET method and X-ray Scattering
03 Aug 2006 |
Colloids are promising materials for a wide range of applications such as selective separations, catalytic processing, and enhanced chemical activity. However, these applications are limited without proper knowledge of colloidal bulk properties. Therefore, the characterization of colloids is...
