2D Moiré Superlattices: a New Hubbard Model Simulator: Nano Seminar Series

Zoom Session
  • Prof. Kin Fai Mak, Cornell Univ., Applied and Engineering Physics
** The Hubbard model, first formulated by physicist John Hubbard in the 1960s, is a simple theoretical model of interacting quantum particles in a lattice. The model is thought to capture the essential physics of high-temperature superconductors, magnetic insulators, and other complex emergent quantum many-body ground states.

Microchemical Sensors for Environmental and Health Monitoring: Nano Webinar Series

Zoom Session
  • Prof. Roya Maboudian, UC Berkeley, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Zoom link: There remains a strong need for miniaturized, low-power gas sensors that can be deployed in wireless applications for improved environmental protection, for public health, and for safe and efficient operation of many industrial processes. Leveraging the microfabrication technologies and utilizing innovations in high surface area...

Delivery and Antiparasitic Antimonial Therapy Using Biomaterial Nanoparticles: Nano Seminar Series

Zoom Session
  • Prof. Timothy Johnstone, UC Santa Cruz, Chemistry & Biochemistry Leishmaniasis is a neglected tropical disease that is endemic to 98 countries and claims tens of thousands of lives each year. Of the handful of drugs available to treat infection with Leishmania spp., two contain the main-group element antimony: meglumine antimoniate and sodium stibogluconate.

RISE Seminar: Lessons from Large-Scale Cloud Software at Databricks

Soda Hall
  • Matei Zaharia, Stanford University
The cloud has become the most common way to deliver commercial software, but it requires building products in a very different way from traditional software, which has not been heavily studied in research. I will explain some of these challenges based on my experience at Databricks, a startup that provides a data analytics platform as a service on AWS and Azure. Databricks manages...
