  1. Fracture Behavior (with Cheese!)

    21 Jun 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Jessica Anne Krogstad

    This presentation introduces fracture behavior of materials with historical context.  Several common fracture mechanisms are introduced in the context of fracture surfaces.   We also provide examples of common testing configurations relevant to the companion lab...

  2. From Driven Systems to Topological Quantum Machines: 2d Floquet and Topological Energy Pumping

    21 Jun 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Gil Refael

    In my talk I will show how applying multiple periodic drives to a quantum system could increase its dimensionality, and may even realize a multidimensional topological phases for zero-dimensional systems. Particularly, a spin-1/2 particle, driven by two elliptically-polarized light beams could...

  3. Quantum Effects in Electromagnetics and Computational Electromagnetics

    20 Jun 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Weng Cho Chew

    In this talk, we begin by discussing quantum effects related to electromagnetics, such as spontaneous emission, Casimir force, quantum transport in devices, and quantum dissipations. Many of these effects have strong bearing on the future of quantum technology development. ...

  4. Designing Multi-Functional Electrodes for Next-Generation Energy Storage Devices

    08 Jun 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Seung Woo Lee

    We will first show that redox-active organic electrodes prepared from earth-abundant organic materials can be promising cathodes for large-scale energy storage devices. We reveal that these organic electrodes have promising charge storage properties for both Li- and Na-ion storage. ...

  5. Understanding Fracture Behavior in Materials Using Cheese

    19 Jun 2018 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):: Jessica Anne Krogstad, Nicole E Johnson-Glauch, Kaitlin Tyler, Rachael Mansbach, Andrew Ferguson

    This is a resource from the Girls Learning About Materials (GLAM) outreach camp run at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The learning objectives for this activity are:Students will compare and contrast different types of fracture behavior (ductile/brittle).Students...

  6. Suns-Vmp Method

    04 Jun 2018 | Downloads | Contributor(s):: Xingshu Sun, Raghu Vamsi Krishna Chavali, Muhammad Ashraful Alam

    This package contains the Matlab scripts to perform the Suns-Vmp method. The code has been tested in Matlab R2016a.

  7. DNA Microarray Learning Module - Instructor Guides

    29 May 2018 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):: Southwest Center for Microsystems Education (SCME), MJ Willis

    This learning module provides an overview of DNA microarrays - types of arrays, aplications, interpretation, design, and fabrication.  Activities provide the opportunity for students to gain a better understanding of these concepts as well as to discuss the ethical questions surrounding...

  9. The implication of Using Conductive Nitrides as Alternative Plasmonic Materials: Going Beyond TiN and ZrN

    29 May 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Panos A. Patsalas

    In this seminar, the optical properties of VN, NbN, TaN, WN, and MoN polycrystalline and epitaxial films will be reviewed and will be critically evaluated by comparing them with ab initio calculations of the band structure of the ideal cubic crystals. Their optical performance will be also...

  10. Organic Conductive Polymers for Wearables Electronics

    29 May 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Gegory A. Sotzing

    Our research laboratory has been involved with the incorporation of PEDOT-PSS into fabrics such as nonwovens like synthetic leathers, and wovens/knits such as spandex. We have discovered that a phase segregation of PEDOT and PSS occurs when PEDOT-PSS is applied to fabric via an esterification...

  11. Graphene Raman Fitting Tool

    29 May 2018 | Tools | Contributor(s):: Matthew Glen Robertson, Darren K Adams, Elif Ertekin

    Analyze Raman spectra from graphene

  12. Laser Processing and Printing of Multilayer Films for Inexpensive and Flexible Microsystems

    29 May 2018 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s):: Rahim Rahimi

    In the first section, I will describe the use of localized CO2 laser irradiation to selectively convert thermoset polymer films (e.g., polyimide) into electrically conductive and highly porous carbon micro/nano structures. This process provides a unique and facile approach for direct writing of...

  13. Clinical Laboratory Techniques and Microtechnology

    29 May 2018 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):: Southwest Center for Microsystems Education (SCME), MJ Willis

    This learning module is an overview of how microtechnology is used for standard clinical laboratory tests.  It covers the advantages and challenges of taking clinical tests out of the laboratory to the point of care (POC). ...
