The Feynman Prize for Excellence in Teaching is Caltech's most prestigious teaching honor.
Faraon research group member challenges the boundaries of flat optics.
Aluminum oxide nanolattice structures are crushed and stretched, revealing a strength-to-density ratio higher than any other reported material.
Professor Stephen Quake visits Caltech to give talk on unraveling the nature of cellular identity.
Caltech provost is the recipient of the 2019 Ronald Breslow Award for Achievement in Biomimetic Chemistry.
The award honors "innovative research in the chemical sciences that contributes to a better understanding of the natural sciences and to the benefit of humanity".
These on-chip integrated acoustic components could be used in unidirectional waveguides and compact delay lines for high-frequency signal-processing applications.
KNI-affiliated faculty members Jacqueline K. Barton and David A. Tirrell are named 2018 Fellows of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI).
Chiara Daraio and Andrei Faraon are appointed KNI board members.
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.
