The division of Engineering and Applied Science has announced a new awards program recognizing efforts across diversity, equity and inclusion.
KNI is delighted to recognize nanoscience community members who are actively engaged in building a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment at Caltech and in STEM.
Dr. McEuen will give a talk on "Microscopic Robots?" at this free, public event.
Dr. Gallant will give a talk on "Advancing the Materials and Chemistry of High-Energy Batteries" at this free, public event.
Dr. Jeong Hoon Ko will discuss his work on "Polymer Coating of Gas Vesicles for Extended Ultrasound Bioimaging"
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.
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.
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.
Greer’s research focuses on creating and characterizing classes of materials with multi-scale microstructural hierarchy, which combine three-dimensional (3D) architectures with nanoscale-induced material properties. Her group develops fabrication and syntheses of micro- and nano-architected materials using 3D lithography, nanofabrication, and additive manufacturing (AM) techniques, and investigate – among others - their mechanical, biochemical, electrochemical, electromechanical, and thermal properties as a function of architecture, constituent materials, and microstructural detail. We strive to uncover the synergy between the internal atomic-level microstructure and the nano-sized external dimensionality, where competing material- and structure-induced size effects drive overall response and govern these properties. Specific topics include chemical and biological devices, ultra-lightweight energy storage systems, damage-tolerant fabrics, additive manufacturing, shape memory polymers, hydrogels, and smart, multi-functional materials.
