Interdisciplinary Biology, Chemistry, Engineering and Physics: Seminar
Prof. Robert Westervelt

 


An interdisciplinary field of research combining Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, and Physics will be described in a series of lectures on fundamental concepts with examples from current research. In Spring, 2005, Nanoscale Science and Engineering will present using topics from: Growth of Nanoscale Structures, Imaging Electrons inside Nanostructures, and Spins and Charges in Coherent Electronics. A paper and oral presentation on one of the topics was assigned.
