Kimberly See, assistant professor of chemistry, has been selected as one of the 2020 Packard Fellows in Science and Engineering.
KNI founding director Michael L. Roukes and collaborators have developed a novel approach for mapping thousands to millions of individual neurons in real time.
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.
