This research concerns predicting nanotube vibrational modes and
their correlated frequencies, and calculating the influence of an attached
molecule, such as DNA, on the nanotube's vibrational frequencies.
Simulation of nanotubes helps understand the behavior of
such nanoscale structures. Developing a protocol to simulate these vibrations
with attached molecules is a major step in understanding how to weigh such
very small objects which currently cannot be weighed easily by other commonly
used methods. It could open the way to further understanding of biological
nanoscale objects, such as DNA.
Spring Semester 2017 time/date to be fixed. Please contact Joan Adler (email@example.com) if you would like to make a presentation.
