Systems that present people with information inescapably make editorial judgments in determining what information to show and how to show it. However the editorial values used to make these judgments are generally invisible to users and in many cases even to the engineers who design them. This work... read more

Quantum Dots (QDs) are a fascinating material that bridges the gap between atomistic interactions and bulk properties. Comprised of several hundred to perhaps a few thousand atoms for the very largest of particles, they are the perfect basis for studying quantum effects, such as confinement.... read more
