 Prof. Itaru Hamachi, Department of Synthetic Chemistry and Biological Chemistry Graduate School of Engineering Kyoto University, Kyoto and CREST/JST, JAPAN

 College of Chemistry

Traditionally, proteins analysis has been conducted under the purified dilute aqueous conditions in most cases. However, it is now being recognized that structure and functions of natural proteins in live systems are rather different from those under such pure conditions. Therefore, it is ideal that proteins can be studied in vivo in more-details for deep understanding of these biomolecules. For...   More >

Conformations and Dynamics of Protein Molecular Recognition

Seminar: Physical Chemistry | February 28 | 4-5 p.m. |  Pitzer Auditorium, 120 Latimer Hall

 Prof. Megan Thielges, Department of Chemistry, Indiana University

 College of Chemistry

Protein dynamics, the population of and interconversion among multiple states, are often evoked to explain function. The experimental characterization of protein dynamics to fully uncover their role however is challenged by both the spatial heterogeneity of proteins and the rapid interconversion of potentially important conformational states. Our group combines the inherent temporal resolution of...   More >

Strong Electron-Phonon Coupling and Ab Initio Theory of Heat Transport

Seminar | March 2 | 4-5 p.m. | 348 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

 Professor Matthias Scheffler, Theory Department of the Fritz Haber Institute

 Materials Science and Engineering (MSE)

Different industrial products require materials with very low thermal conductivity, e.g. thermal-barrier coatings in turbines or thermoelectric materials, or high thermal conductivity, e.g. semiconductor technology and heterogeneous catalysis. However, an ab initio theory that can describe materials belonging to the whole range of such thermal conductivities was lacking so far. Recently we...   More >

Surface Plasmon Near-Field for Improved Optoelectronics and Photochemistry: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar | March 3 | 2-3 p.m. | 390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

 Prof. Terefe G Habteyes, Univ. of New Mexico, Chemistry/Chemical Biology

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

Recent advances show that the near-field properties of localized surface plasmon resonances can be utilized to drive important photochemical reactions at low incident photon flux at room temperature as well as improve the efficiency of optoelectronic devices. Central to these applications is a localized surface plasmon near-field that increases light matter-interaction dramatically.
