Some pointers on creating a good Member Profile as you create your Connexions account. How to modify your Member Profile.

Create an account

From the Connexions home page at: (External Link) select the “Get an account” under Step 1. Follow the process as directed. When prompted for “Member Profile” information you should complete fields as appropriate. The following will help you to complete certain areas.

Affiliation – institution

You should review how others are typing their “Affiliation” and type yours the same. For example: authors from Houston Community College could use: HCC or Houston CC or Houston Community College. However, they should all use: Houston Community College. This is not super important for the profile, but you will want to type the “Institution” field in a collection consistently so collections created by authors from the same institution will all show up together when users do an institution search. The following two slides show you how to browse to the “Institutions” search and review what authors from your institution are using for their affiliation/institution name.


Reviewing institution names

You could be the first author and might need to decide what to use for your institution.

Biography – short biographical sketch

Prepare a short biography about yourself. Information should include your current job, past employment, educational and professional attainments, etc.

Portrait – picture

Using your picture processing skills; modify a picture of yourself cropping it square. It should be no greater than 150 by 150 pixels on each side. Usually this file is stored in a .jpg format.

The Connexions web site will shrink your picture to fit its allocated space; thus, to avoid distortion, you should make sure to crop the picture square.

Editing your member profile

You can change your “Member Profile” at any time. This slide shows how to get to the page for changing it.

Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
