Located on the northwest end of the University of California, San Diego is the San Diego Supercomputer Center. Home to what National Science Director Arden L Bement calls “the engine for change for the next scientific revolution,” that engine is Cyberinfrastructure. Just like the coordinated infrastructure that we depend on for our power and transportation, Cyberinfrastructure, or CI, is an organized aggregate of information technologies that include computers, software, networks, data...

A Physical Model for Widespread Near-Surface and Fault Zone Damage Induced by Earthquakes - Seismic observations indicate that material velocities at shallow depths decrease over a large area after large earthquakes. The reductions are widespread, and occur at distances of up to several source dimensions. A persistent low-velocity fault zone has also been documented extensively from seismic and geodetic observations, in which the velocity drops further after large earthquakes. Dynamic...

The project objective is to design a new interface that maximizes usability of digital image collections based off current methods utilized in sites such as ArtStor, Flickr, Panoramio.

Fabrication of vertical silicon nanowire arrays using nanolithography

submitted by: aohoka09

The determination of thermal conductivity of nanostructures, in addition to its scientific importance, is applicable to characterization of heat utilization efficiency and energy conversion. My objective is to develop a thermal conductivity measurement system for nanoscale devices, based on the 3-omega method.
