Dr. Malathi Srivatsan, Molecular Biology, Dr. Mahadevappa P.
Badanavalu, postdoctoral research associate, and Caleb Pingel,
graduate student, recently attended and presented their research
data at the ASME First Global Conference on Nanoengineering for
Medicine and Biology held Houston, Texas. Their research
presentations on (a) interaction of nanomaterials and neurons, (b)
metal nanoparticles associated neurotoxicity and (c) nanotubes for
regeneration in the nervous system were well received. Dr
Srivatsan was invited to chair a session at the workshop on 'New
Frontiers of Nanomedicine and Biomedical Informatics' at this
meeting. Her discussion of the research she performed at ASU had
attracted interest from researchers in China and South Korea and is
leading to new research collaborations.
Dr. Engelken, colleagues,
publish paper in journal
Dr. Robert Engelken,
Electrical Engineering, and co-authorsTansel Karabacak, Hye-Won
Seo, and Fatih Cansizoglu from the University of Arkansas at Little
Rock, recently had the paper, “High
Optical Absorption of Indium Sulfide Nanorod Arays Formed by
Glancing Angle Deposition,”
published in the
Chemical Society journal,
Their collaboration involved the study and modeling of the optical
properties of the semiconductor indium (III) sulfide as a prelude to
its use in photovoltaic cells. ACS Nano is a peer-reviewed monthly
journal publishing comprehensive articles on the synthesis,
assembly, characterization, theory, and simulation of all aspects of
nanoscience and nanotechnology, including nanomaterials and
assemblies, nanodevides, nanobiotechnology, nanofabrication, and
self- and directed-assembly. ACS Nano won the 2008 American
Publishers Award for Professional & Scholarly Excellence (PROSE)
eProduct/Best Website or Platform and for Best New Journal in
Science, Technology, and Medicine.
