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 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. Specially designed for nanostructure synthesis, fabrication, and characterization, our facilities are available for users across academia, government, and industry.
