In a photovoltaic cell, an incident photon creates an electron (black circle in top sketch) and a hole (open circle).
Ionic micellar assemblies have been simulated over μs time scales on GPUs (image on cover of Soft Matter).
The Materials Research Facilities Network hosted a Shared Facilities Workshop, held at Northwestern University, Nov 1-2, 2011.
April 27-29, 2012: The University of Maryland MRSEC collaborated with partners to present a fun, science-packed three days at the Convention Center in Washington, DC.
Nanomaterials offer innovative approaches to problems from energy production to information storage. A major challenge for nanomaterial use is limited knowledge of their local electrical properties. The electric potential sets the charge-transport pathway through a material.
