Exploring Spin and Topological Phenomena in Complex Oxide Thin Films: Nano Seminar series

180 Tan Hall

Prof. Yuri Suzuki, Stanford University, Applied Physics Spin functionality in materials has the potential to transform energy relevant technologies by providing a new approach to information propagation and manipulation. To date, microelectronics has been largely based on the manipulation of electrons via their charge and advances in devices have been enabled by the introduction of…

Nanostructured Silicon as a Therapeutic and Diagnostic Tool: Nano Seminar series

180 Tan Hall

Distinguished Prof. Michael J. Sailor, UC San Diego, MRSEC / Chem / MSE This presentation describes the chemistry and properties of mesoporous silicon nanoparticles relevant to sensing and treating diseased tissues in vivo. Nanophase silicon is one of few semiconductor "quantum dot" materials that is non-toxic and that degrades to non-toxic byproducts. For in vivo…

Plastics: How Did We Get Here, and What’s Next?: Nano Seminar series

180 Tan Hall

Prof. Ting Xu, UC Berkeley, Materials Science & Engineering Future technologies depend on the development of functional materials having: (1) hierarchical structures spanning multi-length scale down to the molecular level, (2) built-in functionalities (biological, optical, electronic, magnetic properties), (3) superior selectivity with sensitivities comparable to what we find in nature, (4) responsiveness to external stimuli.…
