Each month, and often more frequently, a chemist from industry or academia presents a seminar on his or her research as part of our Departmental Seminar Series. Ph.D. candidates who are close to graduation also present seminars on their work in Departmental or Divisional Seminars, and newer graduate students present within their division. For a list of upcoming seminars please see below.

Photonmanagement in NIR and SSM Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells

Speaker/Presenter: Jared Delcamp
Location: CP-114

Abstract: Recently, dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) were shown to be the highest power conversion efficiency technology of any solar cell technology when using photons from the beginning of the solar spectrum until 700 nm. Two key directions are apparent in further elevating this technology: (1) broadening the spectral window used, and (2) efficiently subdividing the spectrum further for multijunction devices which can be used in combination with many solar cell technologies.

Combining Plasmonic Particles And Lipids For Biosensing And Spectroscopy

Speaker/Presenter: Laura Sagle
Location: CP-114

This presentation will highlight two platforms recently developed in the Sagle group which combine lipids and plasmonic nanoparticles.  The first platform involves sandwiching a liposome between a planar gold surface and a gold colloid to generate a biocompatible, highly enhancing surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) substrate.  Our initial characterization of these novel substrates investigates substrate stability, temperature inside the liposome component, SERS activity inside the liposome, SERS mechanism and reproducibility.  The substrates are shown to be stable to laser irradiati
