Physical Chemistry Seminar 228: Dolores Bozovic

  • Physical Chemistry Seminar
  • Speaker: Prof. Dolores Bozovic
  • Department of Physics

    University of California, Los Angeles

  • Mani L. Bhaumik Centennial Collaboratory 607 Charles E. Young Dr., East, Los Angeles
  • Prof. Bozovic Flyer Title: Physics of the Auditory System Abstract: Hair cells of the auditory system constitute a remarkable biological sensor that exhibits nanometer-scale sensitivity of mechanical detection. Our experiments explore the active nonlinear processes behind the detection of very weak signals. We demonstrate the presence of chaos in the innate motility of active bundles, and…

Physical Chemistry Seminar 228: Anton Van der Ven

  • Physical Chemistry Seminar
  • Speaker: Anton Van der Ven
  • College of Engineering, Materials Department
    University of California, Santa Barbara

  • Mani L. Bhaumik Centennial Collaboratory 607 Charles E. Young Dr., East, Los Angeles
  • Prof Van der Ven Flyer Title: From Electronic Structure to Battery Thermodynamics and Kinetics Abstract:   Most electrochemical processes can be modeled with powerful phenomenological theories that describe ion transport, interface reactions and mechanical responses. Phenomenological descriptions, however, rely on materials specific coefficients and free energies, which are quantities that are often difficult to measure in…

Special Physical Chemistry Seminar 228: Jörg Enderlein

  • Physical Chemistry Seminar
  • Special Seminars
  • Speaker: Prof. Jörg Enderlein
  • Third Institute of Physics – Biophysics
    Georg August University Göttingen

  • Young Hall 2033
  • Prof Enderlein Flyer Title: Metal and Graphene Induced Energy Transfer Abstract:   Metal-Induced Energy Transfer (MIET) Imaging is a recently developed method [1] that allows for nanometer resolution along the optical axis. It is based on the fact that, when placing a fluorescent molecule close to a metal, its fluorescence properties change dramatically, due to electromagnetic…
