KNI-MDL Seminar Series
Join us on Tuesday, December 2, at 4 pm in 125 Steele Lab, for our next seminar with an informal reception to follow. Greg Wanger from the Orphan group at Caltech will speak on "Assessing the Terrestrial Deep Subsurface using Deep UV Fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy". We will also welcome Luther Beegle from JPL who will be giving a talk on the MARS 2020 instrument SHERLOC. The Kavli Nanoscience Institute (KNI) at Caltech and the Microdevices Laboratory (MDL) at JPL co-host the KNI-MDL Seminar series, featuring talks on current research at each facility. 11-25-14
Ceramics Don't Have To Be Brittle
Researchers in Julia Greer's group have developed a method for constructing new structural materials by taking advantage of the unusual properties that solids can have at the nanometer scale. Read more in the Caltech Media article or the Science article. 09-22-14
Applied Physics Prize
Harry Atwater, KNI board member and director of the Resnick Sustainability Institute, has been named a recipient of this year's Julius Springer Prize for Applied Physics. He has made key contributions to the research area of nanophotonics, the science of light at the nanoscale, in particular, pioneering the use of metallic nanostructures that support optical resonances called surface plasmons, to control light at the nanoscale.
