Campus Reopening Notice

Starting June 16th, vaccinated EECS faculty, staff, and students can voluntarily return to their offices, labs and other research spaces in Cory and Soda Halls if they follow the procedures outlined in the EECS Safety Manual.  Building restrictions for non-affiliated collaborators, event attendees, and visitors will continue but be loosened over time. Cory and Soda Halls will open during the first week in August.  We are not hosting events or activities until we receive more clarity about regulatory requirements and are able to resume full operations. Most employees will return to campus on July 12th, and in-person instruction will resume for the Fall semester on August 25th, unless otherwise specified by campus. Please continue to check the University Coronavirus Updates and Resources for latest information.

Nanostructured Silicon as a Therapeutic and Diagnostic Tool: Nano Seminar series

180 Tan Hall
  • Distinguished Prof. Michael J. Sailor, UC San Diego, MRSEC / Chem / MSE
This presentation describes the chemistry and properties of mesoporous silicon nanoparticles relevant to sensing and treating diseased tissues in vivo. Nanophase silicon is one of few semiconductor "quantum dot" materials that is non-toxic and that degrades to non-toxic byproducts. For in vivo applications, advantages include the tissue-penetrating near-infrared wavelength of emission, the...

Exploring Spin and Topological Phenomena in Complex Oxide Thin Films: Nano Seminar series

180 Tan Hall
  • Prof. Yuri Suzuki, Stanford University, Applied Physics
Spin functionality in materials has the potential to transform energy relevant technologies by providing a new approach to information propagation and manipulation. To date, microelectronics has been largely based on the manipulation of electrons via their charge and advances in devices have been enabled by the introduction of new materials and their subsequent improvements in performance. Spin...
