August

Thesis Defense

Theoretical investigation of protein search for targets on DNA

Friday, August 4, 2017, 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Maria Kochugaeva, Doctoral Candidate

Protein-DNA interactions activate the cascades of biochemical transitions in living systems for successful functioning. The starting point in this process is a protein search and recognition of specific target sequences on DNA among millions of non-s more  »

Thesis Defense

Advanced Optical Detection of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes for Biomedical Applications and Photophysical Studies

Tuesday, August 8, 2017, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Ching-Wei Lin, Doctoral Candidate

Fluorescence of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is of great interest for biomedical applications and optoelectronic devices because of their unusual emission wavelengths in the short-wave infrared (SWIR; 900-1600 nm). Many applications requir more  »

Seminar

Electrostriction and giant permittivity of polymer nanocomposites

Monday, August 28, 2017, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Philippe Poulin, Research Director, CNRS Bordeaux

The inclusion of conductive particles into insulating polymer matrices allows the synthesis of nanocomposites with tunable dielectric properties. In particular, giant permittivity is achieved when the conductive inclusions form near percolated networ more  »
