Deji Akinwande - Adventures with Atomic Materials: from Flexible/Wearable Electronics to Memory Devices Deji Akinwande, University of Texas – Austin Abstract: This talk will present our latest research adventures on 2D nanomaterials towards greater scientific understanding and advanced engineering applications. In particular, the talk will highlight our work on flexible electronics, zero-power devices, monolayer memory (atomristors), non-volatile RF switches, and wearable tattoo sensors.… Continue Reading
David Gracias - 3D Nanofabrication by curving, bending, and folding David Gracias, Professor, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Johns Hopkins University Abstract: Conventional VLSI lithographic patterning approaches have revolutionized modern engineering, but they are inherently planar. Recently, researchers have discovered that the interplay between out-of-plane stresses, capillary forces or swelling vs bending rigidity of patterned thin films can be engineered so as… Continue Reading
Christopher Homes - Progress in High-Dielectric Constant Materials Christopher Homes, Brookhaven National Laboratory Abstract: The static dielectric constant of a material Ɛ0 is a scaling factor for capacitors and the devices based upon them; the larger the dielectric constant, the greater the degree of miniaturization. Materials with a dielectric constant greater than that of silicon nitride (Ɛ0 ~ 7) are referred to as… Continue Reading
Dong Sun - Microrobotic Systems for Cell Manipulation Dong Sun, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Center for Robotics and Automation, City University of Hong Kong Abstract: The application of robot technology to achieve early diagnosis and treatment of diseases at the cellular level represents a new frontier in the development of contemporary medical robots. Microrobotic system for cell therapy is an entirely new emerging… Continue Reading
Paul S. Weiss - Atomically Precise Chemical, Physical, Electronic, and Spin Contacts and Interfaces Paul S. Weiss, California NanoSystems Institute and Departments of Chemistry & Biochemistry, Bioengineering, and Materials Science & Engineering, UCLA Abstract: Two seemingly conflicting trends in nanoscience and nanotechnology are our increasing ability to reach the limits of atomically precise structures and our growing understanding of the importance of heterogeneity in… Continue Reading
