Nurturing Nanoscience

January 20, 2017

For over a decade, the Kavli Nanoscience Institute (KNI) at Caltech has been an intellectual hub and facilitator of cross-disciplinary research in the areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology. It houses an advanced nanofabrication facility that supports the research endeavors of many Caltech and Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) researchers and has been critical to realizing exciting breakthroughs in nanoscale photonics, materials science, and biotechnology. ENGenious sat down with the KNI’s two Fletcher Jones Foundation Co-Directors, Professors Oskar J. Painter and Nai-Chang Yeh, as well as the KNI’s Associate Director of Business Operations, Mary Sikora, to discuss the past, present, and future contributions of this intellectual hub.
