Inaugural lecture: Theory and simulation of strongly correlated plasmas and dense matter (Dr. Hanno Kählert, ITAP, CAU)

Jan 26, 2021 from 04:15 PM to 05:45 PM

Online

High density plasmas are fundamentally different from their low density counterparts in space or high temperature fusion reactors. Strong interactions give rise to novel phenomena such as liquid-like ordering and affect their thermodynamic and transport properties. The latter are important for the modeling of dense plasmas in inertial confinement fusion or warm dense matter in planetary interiors. Similar conditions occur at low temperatures or when highly charged ions are involved, which makes it possible to study strong coupling physics on a smaller scale with laser-cooled plasmas or charged dust particles. This talk gives an introduction to the physics of strongly correlated plasmas, their occurrence, and theoretical description. In particular, simulation methods have become indispensable tools to obtain reliable data for their properties in a regime where traditional plasma theory fails. As an example, I present results for the dynamic structure factor - a key quantity that is accessible experimentally and provides deep insight into the thermodynamic, transport, and dielectric properties of strongly correlated plasmas. Future challenges and possible directions for the field will be addressed.

Nanoscale Self-assembly and Electrical Function (Marc Tornow, TU Munich)

Jan 28, 2021 from 04:00 PM to 05:00 PM

Online

Marc TornowProf. Dr. Marc Tornow (Molecular Electronics, TU Munich, Germany)

Self-assembled nanostructures are of large importance in chemistry and biology. Their construction principles may become significant for the future bottom-up fabrication of three-dimensional electronic architectures. I will review our recent investigations on the electronic charge transport in various nanoscale self-assemblies. These range from distinct mechanisms for quantum tunneling in molecular monolayers to memristive switching phenomena in specifically assembled, heterogeneous nanoparticle dimers.

Surface Modification for Biomedicine via the Vapor Deposition of Polymers (Karen Gleason, MIT)

Feb 18, 2021 from 05:00 PM to 06:00 PM

Online

Karen GleasonProf. Karen Gleason, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Department of Chemical Engineering, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA


Multiple vapor deposited polymer compositions been demonstrated for biomedical applications including the surface modification of implants, biosensing, and tissue culture. Homopolymer and copolymer surfaces can be designed directly from the library of functional groups processed by the vapor phase monomers.  Post-deposition modification of the functional groups of the monomeric units in the polymer films with bioactive molecules further enhances the precise chemical signaling at the surface. For interactions with living cells and tissues, surface modification layers must be free of impurities and stable under the conditions of use. A vapor deposition approach eliminates the possibility of contamination by residual solvent. Additionally, purifying monomers, which are small molecules, is much easier than purifying macromolecular polymer chains. The method of initiated Chemical Vapor Deposition (iCVD) has produced uniform coverage over neural probes and lead wires. These implants have microscale geometric features which must be conformally encapsulated by high-purity, pinhole-free, electrically insulating polymer layers. These biopassivation layers must be thin in order to minimize the disruption caused by implantation into the cortex. Since film growth proceeds upwards from the substrate, iCVD offers the opportunity for interfacial engineering prior to beginning iCVD synthesis. Grafting is essential for tethering swellable hydrophilic surface modification layers. Indeed the durability of iCVD hydrogels and zwitterionic layers is greatly enhanced by grafting for the prevention of delamination.
