‘fluorescence spectroscopy’

PhD student illuminates science one T-shirt at a time

Jul. 13, 2020—Necessity as much as aesthetics drove Wilson Adams’ interest in graphic design. He wanted to go beyond predictable two-dimensional charts with labels to illustrate his research. Adams, a Ph.D. candidate in biomedical engineering, taught himself how to create 3D images and iterated further, adding more complex representations such as light dispersion and diffraction. He discovered he enjoyed toying around with designs and...

Size matters in nanocrystals’ ability to adsorb/release gases

Aug. 6, 2013—The technique, which was developed by Vanderbilt University Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Rizia Bardhan, is described in a paper published online Aug. 4 by the journal Nature Materials. In the last 30 years, there has been a tremendous amount of research studying nanocrystals – tiny crystals sized between one to 100 nanometers...
