Colloquium Series: Luisa Whittaker-Brooks, University of Utah

March 30 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Insights into the electronic structure of π- and π-d conjugated organic systems via diffraction and soft X-ray spectroscopy Abstract π- and π-d conjugated organic systems while highly desirable for a host of applications, present several challenges that remain unresolved, including the ability to control the assembly of the organic and metal-organic components and interfaces at the molecular level (orientation and mode of attachment), matching of phonon band structure in metals with discrete vibrations within the molecule, and tuning energetic offsets…

Thomas Dombrowski Defense: From Single to Collective: Model Swimmers at Intermediate Reynolds Numbers

April 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

From Single to Collective: Model Swimmers at Intermediate Reynolds Numbers: Biological and artificial swimmers exist across a broad range of length scales, spanning from micron-sized bacteria and self-propelled nanoparticles to large aquatic organisms and marine robots on the order of meters. Swimming can be categorized by the Reynolds number (Re) which characterizes the relative importance of inertial over viscous forces. Microscopic swimmers at low Re, where viscosity dominates, swim differently than high-Re swimmers, where inertia dominates. Between the two extremes…

Colloquium Series: Engineering viral biotemplates for nanomaterial synthesis (Kevin Solomon, University of Delaware)

April 27 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us on Zoom for our Colloquium Series. This week Kevin Solomon, PhD, from the University of Delaware will be joining us to present "Engineering viral biotemplates for nanomaterial synthesis." Abstract. Biotemplating of nanomaterials is a powerful method for the synthesis of metallic nanostructures with applications in energy storage, catalysis, and sensing. Biotemplates derived from viruses, in particular, are attractive due to their hierarchical self-assembly into tunable monodisperse morphologies encoded within their structure. Amino acid side chains presented on the…

Colloquium Series: How to Understand and Play with Nanoconfinement: A Polymer Perspective (Shudipto Dishari, University of Nebraska – Lincoln)

May 4 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us on Zoom for our Colloquium Series. This week Dr. Shudipto Dishari, University of Nebraska - Lincoln, will be joining us to present "How to Understand and Play with Nanoconfinement: A Polymer Perspective." Abstract. In the era of electric cars, the importance of cutting-edge research to find solutions to the technical challenges of energy conversion and storage devices (such as fuel cells, batteries) can be easily realized. Ion-conducting polymers (ionomers) play a critical role in conducting ions in these…
