Dynamic nanodetectors for magnetic nanoparticles

By Daniel Bartels • June 22nd, 2015

Magnetic biosensors, in which disease markers in biological samples are tagged with magnetic nanoparticles, have the potential to be an important base technology for future point-of-care medical diagnostics devices. At the heart of many of these devices is a magnetoresistive sensor which detects the magnetic fields generated around the nanoparticles (and thus the presence ofmore…

Quantum-mediated Freezing and Melting of Hydrogen Isotopes in Nanopores

By Daniel Bartels • June 22nd, 2015

A detailed understanding of freezing and melting of confined pure hydrogen isotopes and their mixtures at finite temperatures are essential for many problems in nanoscale science, including nucleation of high-pressure quantum crystals and atomic or molecular separation. This project aims to develop fundamental knowledge and expertise in freezing/melting of hydrogen isotope mixtures in carbon nanotubesmore…

Quantum collisions in cancer therapy through to supernovas

By Daniel Bartels • June 19th, 2015

The applicants have developed a world-leading theory for calculating collisions between particles on the atomic scale. Presently, one exciting application is in the field of hadron therapy. This requires the calculation of the stopping power of heavy ions traveling in soft tissue, well-modeled by water molecules. The collision processes such as ion-impact excitation, ionization andmore…

Form Factors, Chiral Symmetry and Dynamical Fermions in Lattice QCD

By Daniel Bartels • June 19th, 2015

This proposal will make use of the compute time offered on the Galaxy supercomputer to significantly advance three key projects investigating fundamental aspects of QCD that are in the numerically intensive production phase of the simulations. Each of the three projects describe below will reveal new knowledge of the fundamental particles that construct our universe,more…
