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. ENGenious magazine sat down with the KNI leadership to discuss the past, present, and future contributions of this intellectual hub.

A technique that allows manmade DNA shapes to be placed wherever desired—to within a margin of error of just 20 nanometers—now removes a major hurdle for the large-scale integration of molecular devices on chips.

Caltech professor Julia Greer is showing that the relationship between strength and weight is not graven in stone by creating brand-new materials that are incredibly strong but weigh next to nothing.

Integrating optics and electronics into systems such as fiber-optic data links has revolutionized how we transmit information. A second revolution awaits as researchers seek to develop chips in which individual atoms control the movement of light within the chip through optical "wires," and photons could replace electrons as the vehicle for performing computations. Andrei Faraon (BS '04), an assistant professor of applied physics and materials science in the Division of Engineering and Applied Science, presents a preview of this revolution at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, December 17, in Caltech's Beckman Auditorium. Admission is free.
