Sigma Aldrich Lecture: “Epitaxy by Design: Epitaxial Growth of Dissimilar Materials”

Abstract:   The ability to integrate dissimilar materials with different crystal structures and properties enables heterostructures to be developed with new functionality well beyond the normal band gap engineering offered by semiconductor heterostructures. The combination of metals, semiconductors, insulators, magnetic, piezoelectric, structural and phase change materials offers the potential for nearly limitless control of device properties. […]

MEAM Seminar: “Nanoparticle Heating for Therapeutics, Regenerative Medicine and Diagnostics”

Gold and iron oxide nanoparticles have unique and tunable properties that allow transduction of optical (light), or radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields to affect heating of biomaterials at multiple scales. This talk will explore the underlying physics and relative advantages of each form of nanoparticle heating for therapeutic treatment of cancer or other disease by heating […]
