Yacaman Recognized with Spiers Memorial Award

Congratulations to Dr. Miguel Jose Yacaman who recently received the Spiers Memorial Award from the Royal Society of Chemistry.   The award recognises contributions to the field of materials science. It was presented during the Faraday Discussions meeting on Nanoalloys celebrated in September 2022 at the historical building of the Royal Society of Chemistry. During […]

Use of Optical Instrumentation for Quantitative Analysis of Cellular Biological Processes

Dr. Mariana Potcoava, The University of Illinois College of Medicine September 30, 2021 Dr. Potcoava’s research is directed to the development of optical instrumentation for biomedical measurements and addresses two broad topics: 1) Holography in tomographic imaging, and 2) Application of Raman spectroscopy in the life sciences. In this webinar, she discusses recent advances in […]

Large Area Solid-State Radiation Detectors

Professor Manuel Quevedo Lopez, University of Texas at Dallas October 7, 2021 The development of low temperature device technologies that have enabled flexible displays also present opportunities for flexible electronics and flexible integrated systems. In this presentation, Professor Lopez discusses fundamental materials properties including crystalline structure, interfacial reactions, doping, etc. defining performance and reliability of […]

Cryomineralogy, Like Mineralogy Only Cooler

Dr. Helen Maynard-Casely, Australian Center for Neutron Scattering September 23, 2021 Ocean worlds have solid surfaces, and although water ice dominates many of these surfaces, its material properties will be heavily influenced by the other chemical species it crystallizes with. Moreover, studies of the minerals that form on these surfaces are clues as to what […]

Designing Optimal Microscopy Experiments to Harvest Single-Cell Fluctuation Information

Dr. Brian Munsky, Colorado State University October 14, 2021 Modern fluorescence labeling and optical microscopy approaches have made it possible to experimentally observe every stage of basic gene regulatory processes, even at the level of individual DNA, RNA, and protein molecules, in living cells, and within fluctuating environments. To complement these observations, the mechanisms and […]
