Atwater to Receive Applied Physics Prize

The annual prize recognizes researchers who have made "an outstanding and innovative contribution" to the field of applied physics.

Programmed to Fold: RNA Origami

Researchers from Aarhus University in Denmark and Caltech have developed a new method for organizing molecules on the nanoscale. Inspired by techniques used for folding DNA origami—first invented by Paul Rothemund, a senior research associate in computation and neural systems in the Division of Engineering and Applied Science at Caltech—the team, which includes Rothemund, has fabricated complicated shapes from DNA's close chemical cousin, RNA.

Frank E. Marble

Frank E. Marble, the Richard L. and Dorothy M. Hayman Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Professor of Jet Propulsion, Emeritus, at Caltech, passed away on August 11. He was 96.

Study of Aerosols Stands to Improve Climate Models

Researchers from Caltech and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory have provided a global observational study of the effect that changes in aerosol levels have on low-level marine clouds—the clouds that have the largest impact on the amount of incoming sunlight that Earth reflects back into space.

Sink or Swim: Students Prep for RoboSub Competition

Students on the Caltech Robotics Team have created a robotic submarine that will compete in the 17th Annual International RoboSub Competition in San Diego.

Future Electronics May Depend on Lasers, Not Quartz

Caltech researchers stabilize microwave oscillators with optical frequencies from a silicon chip. The approach could ultimately replace more conventional methods that rely on crystal references—a technology in use since the 1920s.
