Caltech researchers Ahmed Zewail and Ulrich Lorenz describe how they visualized and monitored the flow of molten lead within a single zinc oxide nanotube in real time and space using a new imaging technique called four-dimensional electron microscopy.
Caltech researchers at the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis have devised a way to protect technologically important semiconductors from corrosion even as the materials continue to absorb light efficiently.
This image shows the latest example of what Julia Greer, professor of materials science and mechanics, calls a fractal nanotruss. Greer's group has developed a three-step process for building such complex structures very precisely.
Building on their prior work, a team of neuroscientists at Caltech now report that rare patients who are missing connections between the left and right sides of their brain show a strikingly high incidence of autism.
