From Self-Assembly to Electrokinetics: Novel Predictive Capabilities for Dielectric Effects
Professor of Material Science and Engineering
Friday February 3, 3:00-4:00pm, Refreshments at 2:30.
271 Batcheller Technology Center <NOTE THE DIFFERENT ROOM>
The ability of matter to self-organize in complex dynamic structures is increasingly used to generate new, active materials. Progress in this field critically depends on the predictive capabilities of reliable and efficient computer simulation strategies. Here, I will introduce new, computational methodologies for dielectric effects, and demonstrate that these methods make it possible to perform dynamic simulations that fully incorporate self-consistently calculated polarization charges. Notably, I will discuss how the impact of these developments ranges from the prediction and control of colloidal and nanoscale self-assembly and aggregation to the understanding of dynamical properties of self-propelled particles that form the basic building blocks of active matter. I will also show how these ideas have the potential to find application in the understanding of supercapacitors and other energy-related problems.
Diagnostic Imaging Physicists in the 21st Century: Ongoing Challenges and Future Developments
Dr. Ryan Bosca
Monday January 30, 3:00-4:00pm, Refreshments at 2:30.
221 South Engineering
Diagnostic imaging has a rich history rooted in Röntgen’s discovery of x-rays and the first radiographs taken over 120 years ago. Since that time, (medical) physicists have been heavily involved in the development of new imaging modalities and techniques, equipment performance evaluations, and operator education for the safe use of such equipment. Technological advancements, especially the development of computers, have resulted in the widespread use of imaging modalities such as computed tomography, positron emission tomography, digital radiography, and magnetic resonance imaging, to name a few. Continued developments from equipment manufacturers, professional organizations, and academic researchers require careful evaluation and implementation by clinical medical physicists. This presentation will briefly outline some of the physical principles used in safely acquiring medical images and summarize research opportunities in the Department of Imaging Physics at Sanford Health in Fargo.
