KNI Enables Major Research Achievements

Two of the fourteen research highlights featured in 14 for 2014: The Year in Research News at Caltech were facilitated by the Kavli Nanoscience Institute. A five-year effort by researchers in Amnon Yariv's lab resulted in A New Laser for a Faster Internet. The lasers were fabricated at the KNI Cleanroom facility.

Researchers from the Schwab group used the KNI to fabricate a tiny mechanical device that is only 40 microns long, or about the diameter of a hair. This device allowed them to find a way to make measurements that go beyond the limits imposed by quantum physics by [Tricking the Uncertainty Principle] 1-6-15
