Naomi Halas - Naomi Halas, Stanley C. Moore Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Rice University Biography: Dr. Naomi J. Halas holds faculty appointments in the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Physics and Astronomy, Chemistry, Materials Science and Nanoengineering, and Bioengineering. She is best known as the first person to demonstrate that controlling the geometry of metallic nanoparticles determines their color. She… 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
Mark Johnson - Practical Quantum Computing Mark Johnson, D-Wave Abstract: Quantum computing has entered an era where differentiation is better measured in the variety and value of customer applications than it is with physical device metrics. I will review D-Wave's recent product release, advantage, its role in D-Wave's approach to attacking business scale problems, and some of the practical uses it is being… Continue Reading
Jessica E. Koehne - Carbon Nanomaterial Based Sensors and Devices for NASA Missions Jessica E. Koehne, NASA Ames Research Center Abstract: Carbon nanomaterials have been investigated for their use in NASA missions due to their interesting electronic, mechanical, optical, and thermal properties. At NASA Ames Research Center, we have evaluated carbon nanotubes (CNTs), carbon nanofibers (CNFs), and graphene for electrochemical sensor and electronics applications,… Continue Reading
Tatiana Segura - Annealed Hydrogel Microparticles as Scaffolds for Tissue Repair Tatiana Segura, Duke University Abstract: Injectable materials that can conform to the shape of a desired space are used in a variety of fields including medicine. The ability to fill a tissue defect with an injectable material can be used for example to deliver drugs, augment tissue volume, or promote repair of… 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
Xiaoying Zhuang - Multiscale modelling and optimization of flexoelectric nano structures Xiaoying Zhuang, Chair of Computing Science and Simulation Technology, Institute of Photonics, Department of Maths and Physics, Leibniz University Hannover Abstract: Flexoelectricity is the generation of electric polarization under mechanical strain gradient or mechanical deformation subjected to an electric gradient (converse-flexo). Flexoelectricity is a more general phenomenon than the linear change in… 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
David Xu - Nanomaterials in Semiconductor Packaging: Challenges and Opportunities David Xu, Intel Abstract: Packaging of semiconductor devices essentially transforms semiconductor devices into functional electronic products. Packaging technology not only establishes the shape, size, and weight of chips, but also determines the chip reliability. While packaging has always been an important technology enabler, in recent years with increasing need for heterogeneous integration, the… Continue Reading
