College Colors Day – Wear crimson and gray!

Across the United States students, parents, family, faculty, fans, and alumni celebrate College Colors Day every year on the Friday before Labor Day. This year, it takes place on September 2. Rock your crimson and gray apparel and show your spirit and WSU pride! From now until September 2, you can enter for the chance to win college gear, gift cards, and a trip to the College Football Playoff National Championship.

CHE 598 Seminar: Anharmonic Effects on Material Properties at High Temperatures From Ab Initio Molecular Dynamics Simulations
Workshop / Seminar

Ab initio molecular dynamics simulation technique is a promising tool to study various properties of vibrational spectra, X-ray spectra, free energy, entropy, etc. even at high temperatures. With the harmonic phonon model, all interatomic forces are treated as purely harmonic so that the equilibrium distance between atoms is independent of temperature.

CHE 598 Seminar: Towards Tailoring Atomic Scale Distributions Within Heavy Element Nanostructures: Pairing Synthetic Inorganic Chemistry With Advanced X-ray Characterization
Workshop / Seminar

Nanostructures (particularly with sizes below 10 nm) are inherently challenging to characterize on the atomic scale, due to broadening which occurs in diffraction-based characterization methods, and the high concentration of surface defects and energy-minimization effects. Characterization challenges compound when investigating nanoscale actinide oxides, such as uranium oxide, due to radioactive sample constraints and rich electronic structure which can potentially stabilize a wide range of crystallographic arrangements.

CHE 598 Seminar: Music of the Heart — Cooperative Force Development In Mammalian Myocardium
Workshop / Seminar
Center for Undergraduate Education (CUE)

Given the ten-fold difference in resting heart rates and twitch kinetics between small and large mammals, it is likely that the cooperative phenotype is a species-dependent property of mammalian myocardium instances. Such a mechanism suggests a molecular basis for beat-to-beat synchronization of ventricular contractility and circulatory demand.
