Upcoming Calendar Events

  • Mar 31: MolES Seminar: Gurav Bahl, U of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

    Tue Mar 31, 2015 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm | Tuesday, Mar. 31, 2015, 1 - 2 p.m. PDT Brillouin Optomechanical Systems and Opto-Mechano-Fluidics Microscale “cavities” that simultaneously exhibit high-Q optical and mechanical resonances are now widely used for studying the coupled-interactions between light and sound (i.e. photons and phonons). The unique physics of these opto-mechanical systems enables them to operate as highly efficient tools for producing compact frequency references, for fundamental experiments in nonlinear optics, approaching the quantum-mechanical ground state, and also for extreme-resolution sensor applications. However, all these systems are averse to fluids as they perturb optical refractive indices, cause scattering, deteriorate material quality through absorption, and even damp out mechanical vibrations. These systems have thus remained entirely solid-state … till recently. Our team’s work has focused on two uniquely different versions of optomechanics –(1) using Brillouin scattering to couple traveling optical waves to traveling acoustic waves in ultra-high-Q resonators [1]; and (2) on developing the first microfluidic optomechanical device [2] capable of high-throughput chemical/biological/physical investigations on arbitrary flowing analytes. In my talk I will discuss the underlying mechanisms of Brillouin Optomechanics and the applications that we have explored in parametric self-excitation and cooling of acoustic modes. Tangentially, using our opto-mechano-fluidic devices, we have demonstrated that we can extract acoustic properties of fluids (viscosity, density, speed of sound) and perform bioanalyte detection, only by using light. The new informational degrees-of-freedom provided by such opto-acoustic measurements could lead to surprising new sensor applications in the near future. If time permits, I will describe our group’s experiment showcasing the first optomechanical system in which a non-reciprocal induced transparency has been observed [3]. Refs. [1] Bahl et al, Nat. Phys. vol.8 no. 3, p.203, 2012 [2] Bahl et al, Nat. Comms. 4:1994, 2013 [3] Kim et al, Nat. Phys. vol.11 p.275, 2015 Bio: Dr. Gaurav Bahl is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), and an Affiliate Faculty in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Dr. Bahl received his PhD and MS degrees in EE from Stanford in 2010 and 2008, and BEng degree in ECE from McMaster University in 2005. He has authored the first experimental papers on parametric excitation and cooling through Brillouin Optomechanics, and on Opto-Mechano-Fluidic oscillators. His work on Brillouin systems (cooling and microfluidics) has been featured as a “(top-30) significant development in optics” for two years in a row in the Optics in 2012 and Optics in 2013 special issues of the OSAs monthly Optics & Photonics News magazine. Additional commentary by editors and prominent researchers on the significance of his Brillouin optomechanics work has appeared in Nature Physics, Nature Photonics, and many technical news websites.

  • Apr 2: The Future of Small

    Thu Apr 2, 2015 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm | Thursday, Apr. 2, 2015, 7 - 9 p.m. PDT Prepare for the revolution in miniaturization. Register now: http://engage.washington.edu/site/R?i=yp_FD5X81xJsMsOr_I3OpA Paul McEuen, John A. Newman Professor of Physics and Director of the Kavli Institute at Cornell University discusses the past and the future of miniaturization, with a particular emphasis on strategies to construct machines at the micro and nano scale. Over fifty years ago, the physicist Richard Feynman gave a remarkably prescient talk about the coming revolution in miniaturization. For the next half a century, the ever-shrinking integrated circuit brought his dreams to fruition in the realms of data and computing. But the third leg of Feynman's dream, the miniaturization of machines, is only just getting underway. The next 50 years promise even bigger changes if we can create functional devices at the smallest scales, mimicking the complexity and functionality of life. In this talk, we will discuss both the past and the future of miniaturization, with a particular emphasis on strategies to construct machines at the micro and nano scale. It is a problem that touches on everything from the mathematics of origami to the origin of life, and solving it is one of the great challenges of the twenty-first century.

Unexpectedly, solar cells incorporating these perovskites are rapidly emerging as serious contenders to rival the leading photovoltaic technologies. Power conversion efficiencies have jumped from 3% to over 20% (certified) in just four years of academic research. Closely following the solar cell development, the light-emitting properties of perovskite semiconductors have also been reinvigorated. Here, I will present recent advances to better understand the operation of the state-of-the-art solar cells and the properties that have delivered high performance light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and lasers. I will cover topics including charge carrier diffusion and recombination mechanisms, as well as ion migration and its potential impact on device performance and hysteresis. Understanding these processes is key to further development of the field and to bringing the perovskite technology to commercialization.

  • May 6: CEI Interdisciplinary Seminar: Xiao-Qing Yang, Brookhaven National Laboratory

    Wed May 6, 2015 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm | Wednesday, May 6, 2015, 4 - 5 p.m. PDT Using Synchrotron Based X-ray Diffraction and Absorption and TXM to Study the New Electrode Materials for Next Generation of Batteries In developing high energy density cathode materials, layer structured Li2MoO3 is a very interesting model compound to study. In this presentation, we report the structural studies and charge compensation of Li2MoO3 during the initial charge and discharge. The close to fully reversible structural changes and Mo ion migration, originated from the charge compensation of Mo ions in both the Mo-O and Mo-Mo covalent bonds in the Mo3O13 cluster, make Li2MoO3 an appropriate alternative of Li2MnO3 in constructing new xLi2MoO3·(1-x)LiMO2 cathode materials, which may have less lattice-breathing range and oxygen evolution during cycling. Recently, LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4, denoted as LNMO, has attracted a lot of research attention as a promising high-energy density cathode material based on its higher operating voltage at ~4.7V vs. Li+/Li compared to the parent material, LiMn2O4.On the other hand, the poor cycle and calendar life of LNMO, especially at elevated temperatures, still remain one of the major challenges in its widespread applications. Extensive research has addressed some key factors determining its capacity and rate performance, such as cation ordering, transition metal substitution, and the Li-insertion/extraction mechanism. A combination of in situ synchrotron time-resolved x-ray diffraction (TR-XRD) coupled with mass spectroscopy (MS) and in situ x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) during heating, as well as transmission x-ray microscopy (TXM) were applied to study the thermal stability of this material. The effects of Fe doping on capacity and thermal stability were also studied. Bio Xiao-Qing Yang is a scientist in the Chemistry Department at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL, New York, USA). His research focuses on materials for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) and the development of new characterization tools for battery materials using a series of synchrotron-based techniques such as in situ X-ray diffraction and X-ray adsorption. He was elected to be the member of the Board of Directors of the International Battery Materials Association (IBA) in 2007. He served in the organizing Committee and elected as the secretary general of the 14th International Meeting of Lithium Batteries (14th IMLB2008), a member of the International Scientific Committee of IMLB2008, IMLB2010, and IMLB2012, elected to be the treasury of the IMLB LLC, in June 2012. He received the “2012 Vehicle Technologies Program R&D Award” from the Vehicle Technologies Program in the Office of EE&RE in May, 2012. In January 2015, he received the International Battery Association (IBA) IBA2015 Research Award.
