Title: Orbit-Orbit Interaction Effects on Excited States in Hybrid Perovskites from 3D to 2D Design Speaker: Bin Hu Affiliation: University of Tennessee ABSTRACT: Organic-inorganic hybrid perovskites are known as strong-orbital materials and have demonstrated unique photovoltaic, light-emitting, and lasing actions. The strong orbital momentum leads to an orbit-orbit interaction in excited states towards developing optoelectronic properties. In principle, the orbit-orbit interaction can directly affect both (i) Rashba effect associated with direct and indirect transitions and (ii) the interaction between excited states.…

Enabling Innovative Nanotechnology Research and Training

September 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
EB1 – 3018, 911 Partners Way
Raleigh, NC 27606 United States

Speaker: Maude Cuchiara Title: Enabling Innovative Nanotechnology Research and Training Abstract: Nanotechnology has been at the center of countless discoveries and innovations in independent scientific disciplines as well as interdisciplinary fields. Critical to these endeavors is a robust infrastructure that enables diverse researchers to fabricate and characterize nanomaterials, nanostructures, and nanodevices and effectively trains the next generation of scientists in cutting-edge techniques. The Research Triangle Nanotechnology Network (RTNN) provides this type of dynamic environment. This talk will highlight the role that I…

Immunomodulation with Dynamic Nucleic Acid Nanomaterials KIRILL AFONIN The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Charlotte, NC Department of Chemistry   Friday, September 20 - 11:00am – EB1 1011 ABSTRACT: Therapeutic nucleic acids are being increasingly considered for the treatment of various diseases. Despite the recent approval by the FDA of the very first RNA interference-based therapy, several other promising therapeutic nucleic acids have been withdrawn from clinical trials due to severe cytokine storm. To address these barriers, more sophisticated formulations that…

Understanding Grain Boundaries through Crystallography Geometry and Statistics PROF. SRIKANTH PATALA Department of Materials Science and Engineering North Carolina State University Raleigh, NC 27695-7907 Friday, October 4 - 11:00am – EB1 1011 ABSTRACT: Grain boundaries are planar defects that are ubiquitous in engineering materials. In polycrystalline systems, a wide range of phenomena including diffusion, conductivity, failure resistance (corrosion, intergranular cracking, creep, embrittlement, radiation resistance) and thermal stability, depend on the properties of the internal interfaces. While the engineering of grain…
