16.05.2012. :: Kolokvijum Instituta za fiziku - Akhlesh Lakhtakia
16. maja 2012. godine, sa pocetkom u 12 casova, u sali "Zvonko Maric", odrzace se kolokvijum:
SCULPTURED THIN FILMS
Sculptured thin films (STFs) are assemblies of nanowires that can be fabricated from many different materials, typically via physical vapor deposition onto rotating substrates. The curvilinear-nanowire morphology of STFs is determined by the substrate motions during fabrication. The optical properties, especially, can be tailored by varying the morphology of STFs. In many cases prototype devices have been fabricated for various optical, biological, and other applications.
Akhlesh Lakhtakia received degrees from the Banaras Hindu University (B.Tech. & D.Sc.) and the University of Utah (M.S. & Ph.D.), in electronics engineering and electrical engineering, respectively. He is the Charles Godfrey Binder (Endowed) Professor of Engineering Science and Mechanics at the Pennsylvania State University. He is a Fellow of SPIE, Optical Society of America, American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, and Institute of Physics (UK). He is presently the editor-in-chief of Journal of Nanophotonics. His current research interests include nanotechnology, plasmonics, engineered biomimicry, complex materials, metamaterials, and sculptured thin films.
