Vahala group and collaborators design vernier spectrometer with a microresonator
Over the last few years, the Kavli Nanoscience Institute has made a concerted effort to increasing the technical capabilities within the KNI Laboratory.
Tirrell is named a member of the American Philosophical Society at the organization's Spring 2019 Meeting.
Meet the first cohort of KNI SURF-the-WAVE prize fellows.
The magic cavity represents a small – but significant – step towards realizing more complex and powerful open quantum systems of light and matter, so-called Quantum Photonic Matter.
Michal Lipson will present the last KNI Distinguished Seminar of the season of "The Revolution of Silicon Photonics"
Caltech article features Medical Engineering professor Wei Gao's work on personalized medical devices that analyze an individual's sweat.
Nathalie de Leon will present the next KNI Distinguished Seminar on "Engineering coherent defects in diamond".
Professor Jonathan Simon will present on "Making Matter from Light: Mott Insulators and Topological Fluids".
We developed DNA origami in 2006. The process has the potential to influence a variety of applications from drug delivery to the construction of nanoscale computers.
Painter’s research looks at ways to create new optical materials and devices through the development of nano-scale fabrication techniques and through the exploration of novel physics. The type of research ranges from theory and design, to the fabrication and characterization of devices, and is naturally inter-disciplinary.
Yeh’s principal research field is experimental condensed matter physics, with special emphasis on correlated electronic systems, topological matter, spintronics, low-dimensional systems, nanoscience and nanotechnology, scanning probe microscopy, energy research including photovoltaic and fuel cells, and precision measurements using superconducting technology.
I build devices based on the fundamentals of light–matter interaction. They are all fabricated in the KNI. All this work would be impossible without it. I also bounce ideas off of KNI faculty - they are as good as it gets.
The Kavli Nanoscience Institute at Caltech is an intellectual hub and facilitator of nanoscale research at the frontiers of electronics, photonics, quantum matter and technology, medical engineering, bioengineering, and sustainability.
Our multi-user laboratories and cleanrooms are located in the Steele Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California. Specially designed for nanostructure synthesis, fabrication, and characterization, our facilities are available to researchers within Caltech and across academia, government, and industry.
