ChE-605 - Highlights in Energy Research seminar series In the past, active materials and other components in energy devices have largely been discovered by chemical intuition and by analogy to natural systems. As physical models of complex materials phenomena get into their stride alongside increasingly robust computing prowess, it is now possible to invert the ...

This is a 1h crash course in 3D printing, modifying wood, paper, metal, plastics, soldering electronic circuits and analysing them. And all of this happens inside one square meter! Introducing: The Octanis Rack (http://octanis.org/rack/)! We give you pointers for your own project and you then get the access to the tools to further explore it ...

Topological semimetals (TSMs), characterized by Weyl/Dirac nodes in the bulk and Fermi arcs on their surfaces, are new states of three-dimensional quantum matters. They represent the extension of the topological classification of matters from insulator to metal. The low energy excitation in Dirac/Weyl semimetals (WSM) behaves in the similar way as the massless Dirac/Weyl fermions ... Read more about "Topological Semimetals: Where the Massless Fermions Are"

BIOENGINEERING SEMINAR Abstract: Epithelial bending is a fundamental process of developmental morphogenesis from the earliest stages of gastrulation to the final stages of organogenesis. Classically, epithelia bend by apical constriction in which apical actin contraction forces cells to become wedge-shaped. In principle, this is not the only way a sheet of cells can bend itself. ...

A microgrid can be defined as a part of the grid with elements like distributed energy sources, power electronics converters, energy storage devices and controllable local loads that can operate autonomously in islanded mode but also interacting with the main power network in a controlled, coordinated way. Following the introduction of distributed control of these ... Read more about "New Research Challenges in Industrial and Residential Microgrids"

Efficient traffic control and management of large-scale transportation networks still remain a challenge both for traffic researchers and practitioners. Over decades, control strategies have been proposed and applied for isolated or coordinated intersections in arterials, while in the last decade several works have utilized the macroscopic fundamental diagram (MFD) for developing real-time control strategies to ...
