The Kavli Nanoscience Institute was pleased to host a Kavli Futures Symposium on the Frontiers of Condensed Matter Physics. This special one-day symposium brought together experts to discuss emerging physics and technology from the edge states of surfaces & interfaces of novel materials and nano-metamaterials.
Paul Asimow and his research group examine the properties of exotic solids known as quasicrystals via high-impact shock recovery experiments.
Grad student collaboration from the tennis courts to the lab leads to a surprising discovery in microscopy.
In this featured article, EAS Division Chair Guruswami Ravichandran explains how “the marriage of quantum science and engineering has the potential to result in technologies that can revolutionize all aspects of science.”
In this special Watson Lecture Series, Andrei Faraon, recipient of the 2016 KNI-Wheatley Scholar program, will discuss his recent research achievements in Flat Metasurface Optics.
Andrei Faron and his team have developed a novel technique that allows for the projection of two different images from the same hologram.
Congratulations to Professor Nathan S. Lewis on being elected to the National Academy of Inventors (NAI)
The KNI is pleased to announce that Stevan Nadj-Perge, Assistant Professor of Applied Physics and Materials Science, has been named the 2017 KNI-Wheatley Scholar in Nanoscience.
For the first time, an international team led by engineers at Caltech has developed a computer chip with nanoscale optical quantum memory. The smallest-yet optical quantum memory device is a storage medium for optical quantum networks with the potential to be scaled up for commercial use.
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 that helps facilitate nanoscale research at the frontiers of electronics, photonics, quantum matter and technology, medical and bioengineering, and sustainability.
Our multi-user laboratories and cleanrooms are located in the Steele Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, California. These facilities, designed for nanostructure synthesis, fabrication, and characterization are available to users from academia, government, and industry.
