David Chandler Lecture in Physical Chemistry: Bubbles in space-time, or how to think about supercooled liquids, glasses and slow dynamics

Seminar: Physical Chemistry | February 26 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall

 Juan Garrahan, Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of Nottingham

 College of Chemistry

Despite having made many fundamental contributions to the theory of
liquids from early in his career, David Chandler only began paying
serious attention to one of its central problems, that of the glass
transition in supercooled liquids, relatively late. This started when
David and I met in Oxford in early 2001 during one of his sabbaticals,
and developed into our joint work in this...   More >

Mechano- and Visco-NPS: An Electronic Method to Measure the Mechanical Properties of Cells: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar | March 1 | 2-3 p.m. | 4 LeConte Hall

 Prof. Lydia Sohn, UC Berkeley, Mechanical Engineering

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

We have developed an efficient, label-free method of screening cells for their phenotypic profile, which we call Node-Pore Sensing (NPS). NPS involves measuring the modulated current pulse caused by a cell transiting a microfluidic channel that has been segmented by a series of inserted nodes.

Previously, we showed that when segments between the nodes are functionalized with different...   More >
