    • Polymeric Semiconductors: Molecular Ordering, Charge Transport and Macroscale Mobility 

      Reichmanis, Elsa (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-01-28)
      The performance of devices fabricated using polymeric semiconductors depends critically upon alignment of the polymer chains at the nano- through macro-scales. Significant structure-process- property relationships that ...
    • Precision Medicine is Advanced by Precision Microsystems 

      Herr, Amy E. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2021-02-23)
      While the biomedical importance of detecting cellular heterogeneity is widely accepted, we lack tools for detection of the vast majority of molecular heterogeneity, as expressed in proteins. In fact, oncoproteins and their ...
