Study of Wet-Chemically-Prepared Hydrogen-Terminated Silicon (111) Surfaces and a Novel Implementation of a High-Resolution Interferometer
This thesis summarizes my graduate study under the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Atom-Based Dimensional Metrology Project, in which we are developing methods for measuring sub-micrometer dimensions ...
ORBITAL-FREE DENSITY FUNCTIONAL THEORY OF ATOMS, MOLECULES, AND SOLIDS
Density functional (DF) theory has proved to be a powerful way to determine the ground state energy of atoms, molecules, and extended systems. An important part of the theory requires one to determine the kinetic energy ...
Biomolecular self-assembly is the complicated processes characterized by broad and hierarchical structure of energy, length, and time scales. Various experimental tools have, for decades, been used to understand the ...
Protein folding and amyloid formation in various environments
Understanding and predicting the effect of various environments that differ in terms of pH and the presence of cosolutes and macromolecules on protein properties is a formidable challenge. Yet this knowledge is crucial in ...
STRUCTURE TAILORED PROPERTIES AND FUNCTIONALITIES OF ZERO-DIMENSIONAL NANOSTRUCTURES
The field of nanoscience and nanotechnology has achieved significant progress over last thirty years. Complex nanostructures with tunable properties for novel applications have been successfully fabricated and characterized. ...
LINK BETWEEN DYNAMICS AND FUNCTION IN SINGLE AND MULTI-SUBUNIT ENZYMES
Biopolymers, such as proteins and DNA, are polymers whose three-dimensional conformations dene their biological functions. Current emphasis on structures has greatly advanced our understanding of the functions of ...
