Controlling Molecular Transformation for New Photoresponsive Materials & Chemistry

A central research theme of our team is to discover new molecular transformations via the excited state and utilize/control such transformations for the creation of new functional / photoresponsive molecular materials for applications in optoelectronic/energy conversion devices.

Exploring Solid-State Responsive Materials: from Design to Synthesis and Applications

Solid-state responsive materials display unique reaction under static or variable applied forces or fields. In my group we explore three types of the responsive materials: (1) inorganic phosphors for temperature sensing; (2) thermoelectric materials for power generation; (3) magnetocaloric materials for magnetic refrigeration. Some of the challenges in each field will be analyzed and the ways we solve the challenges will be presented.

Density-field Modeling of Material Microstructures and Dynamics: Advances and Challenges

V. N. Du Le, Research Associate McMaster University TITLE Tissue Phantoms for Optical Spectroscopy and Spectral Imaging

ABSTRACT-Tissue-simulating phantoms with controlled optical properties and/or physiological properties are critical for standardizing and evaluating the performance of optical spectroscopy and optical imaging systems. The selection criteria for the materials of optical phantoms critically depend on the region of spectrum and the target tissues that the technology applies to. The later determines the design parameters for the phantom such as its thickness, heterogeneities/layered structure, container, and machining constraints.
