  1. The Mathematics of Modeling Phenomena from the Bottom Up

    18 Feb 2015 | Seminars

    In this talk, I will demonstrate how mathematical models can be used to understand and improve nanoscale systems. In particular, it will be shown that photovoltaics (solar cells) can be made 100 times thinner and have their potential efficiency improved by 30% using nanophotonic structures in the...

  2. Building Future Optical Technologies with Plasmonic Metamaterials

    18 Feb 2015 | Seminars

    The focus of this lecture is to introduce "plasmonic" structures and "metamaterials" as potential building blocks for advanced optical technologies including denser optical circuitry with reduced footprint; enhanced data storage; novel nanofabrication techniques capable of creating nanoscale...

  3. Nanotechnology for Drug Delivery

    18 Feb 2015 | Seminars

    Nanotechnology can be used to solve a fundamental problem in medicine. How do we deliver drugs to the right place at the right dose, and avoid the current problem of delivering the drugs to the wrong place at the wrong dose? When we deliver drugs to the wrong place and/or at the wrong dose, we...

  4. An Introduction to Nanotechnology

    18 Feb 2015 | Seminars

    Nanotechnology enables the manipulation of matter and the fabrication of devices with atomic dimensions. New material properties emerge from large surface to volume ratios and the quantum mechanical nature of electrons. On a nanometer length scale, physics, chemistry, and biology converge. In...
