Department researchers prepare nanoparticles by laser-driven thermal decomposition of vapor-phase precursors. Here a transmission electron micrograph image shows two particles about 5 nm in diameter in which the crystal planes of silicon atoms are visible.
Center of Excellence for Document Analysis and Recognition (CEDAR)
Research at CEDAR focuses on the theory and applications of pattern recognition, machine learning, and information retrieval. CEDAR is a leader document analysis and recognition, object recognition in images in three-dimensional scenes, forensic document examination, textual information retrieval, biometrics, and bioinformatics.
