A conversation with Stevan Nadj-Perge, assistant professor of applied physics and materials science, about using 2-D materials in the development of a device that could turn quantum computing concepts into usable technology.
A new technique developed at Caltech that uses gas-filled microbubbles for focusing light inside tissue could one day provide doctors with a minimally invasive way of destroying tumors with lasers, and lead to improved diagnostic medical imaging.
Chemotherapy injections are a painful but necessary part of many cancer treatment regimes. SURF student Teo Wilkening spent his summer developing a chemotherapy patch that could one day take pain out of the equation.
Charles Elachi has announced his intention to retire as director of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory on June 30, 2016 and move to campus as professor emeritus. A national search is underway to identify his successor.
If microbial life exists elsewhere in the solar system, wouldn't we like to actually see it on the move? Bioengineers are already testing a new scope—in extreme environments a bit closer to home—that could capture the 3D videos to make that possible.
