  1. DNA Nanowires

    06 Aug 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Margarita Shalaev

    DNA is a relatively inexpensive and ubiquitous material that can be used as a scaffold for constructing nanowires. Our research focuses on the manufacturing of DNA-templated, magnetic nanowires. This is accomplished by synthesizing positively-charged metal nanoparticles that self-assemble along...

  2. Dynamic Failure of Polymer-Bonded Explosives under Periodic Excitation

    27 Jul 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Rachel Katherine Kohler, Camilo Alberto Duarte, Marisol Koslowski

    Accidental mishandling of explosive materials leads to thousands of injuries in the US every year. Understanding the mechanisms behind the detonation process is crucial to prevent such accidents. In polymer-bonded explosives (PBX), high-frequency mechanical excitation generates thermal energy...

  3. 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...

  4. Electrodeposition of Palladium as an Ohmic Contact for Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes

    03 Aug 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Brent Penque, David Janes

    Carbon nanotubes are being researched extensively for their unique conductive properties. Controlled growth of vertical single-walled carbon nanotubes, however, has not yet been possible. This presentation reports a way to synthesize vertical single-walled carbon nanotubes that can be used for...
