About the Seminar Fungal infections have a wide variety of impacts on the lives of everyday people. Dermatological fungal infections are incredibly common, and immunocompromised individuals can contract other, rarer fungal infections that have mortality rates upwards of 70%. Broad screening methods for fungal infections are desirable because current methods, like cultures, take a considerable […]

An Optical Approach To Measure Band Energies Of Monolayer MoS2 About the Seminar  This talk summarizes recent research results toward quantifying the energetics of monolayer (7 Å thick) molybdenum disulfide (MoS2).  As a semiconducting 2-dimensional (2D) material, MoS2 shows promise in energy conversion, nanoelectronics, and sensor applications.  Interestingly, electrostatic gating (i.e. applied voltages) tunes the […]

About the Seminar The idea of living on Mars or the Moon has been a staple of science fiction since the 19th century.  However, if this sci-fi dream were to ever become reality, what would it be like to live there?  Conditions make living on Mars extremely challenging.  In particular, materials needed for such extreme […]

About the Seminar The acidity of atmospheric particles is important for the phase partitioning of semi-volatiles, the solubility of metals, and the rates of heterogeneous reactions, but is challenging to measure directly. Even with extremely accurate measurements of the dominant contributors to the ion balance in particles, one can rarely deduce the activity of H+ with […]

About the Seminar I will describe my group’s use of quantum-chemical calculations and machine learning to decode key physical principles for organometallic catalyst design and analysis of nonstatistical reaction dynamics. For catalyst design, I will discuss our efforts to design Cr-based ethylene trimerization and tetramerization catalysts that have been experimentally realized (Chem. Sci. 2020, 9665). […]

About the Seminar Because of their size, engineered nanoparticles display an exciting range of chemical and physical properties, and thus, have great potential for a variety of applications. While the early years of applied nanoscience brought concerns about the potential toxicity of nanomaterials, in the last decade, the research community has largely established that nanoparticles do not display unique […]

*Seminar CANCELLED/POSTPONED until further notice.* About the Seminar Organic materials offer a rich palate to be decorated with functional units in order to tune various properties. For example, the ability to generate multiple excitons from a single photon (singlet fission in molecular materials) has the potential to significantly enhance the photocurrent in single-junction solar cells, […]

About the Seminar Recently, we developed thermoplastic electrodes (TPEs) that are advantageous compared to traditional carbon composite electrodes in terms of cost, performance, and robustness. However, TPE applications in biosensing are currently limited due to a lack of facile methods for electrode modification. TPEs have a highly variable surface chemistry, lending to inconsistent immobilizations of […]

About the Seminar Authors of talk: Heidi D Kreckel, Fionna M. D. Samuels and Nancy E. Levinger Global plant genetic diversity is decreasing at an alarming rate due to global climate change and human population growth. Although many conservation efforts are successful, they are often at risk of pests and contamination. Further, most ex-situ conservation […]

About the Seminar:  Several methods are now available which are able to extend the resolution of optical microscopes beyond the diffraction limit. These methods include photoactivated localization microscopy, stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy, stimulated emission depletion microscopy, and super-resolution structured illumination microscopy (SIM). In many situations, SIM is the most useful super-resolution method for imaging live […]

About the Seminar Molecular complexes of early transition metals are of interest as catalysts for the production of fine chemicals or polymers. One important feature of some such complexes is their paramagnetism, which can be studied by nuclear and electron paramagnetic resonance (i.e., NPR and EPR) spectroscopy. In cases where there is more than one […]
