  • MolE Feature: Ph.D. Student Ty Jorgenson

    At the intersection of genetic engineering and nanoscience, second-year MolE Ph.D candidate Tyler (Ty) Jorgenson is developing a set of design rules for devices that join biology with solid-state materials. His specific research focus is the self-assembly of solid-binding peptides and their interfaces with single-layer atomic (2D) materials, which he says is particularly promising for… Read More…

  • Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

    From UW Today: For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras. But today‚Äôs glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require lenses made of a new… Read More…

  • UW team develops fast, cheap method to make supercapacitor electrodes

    MolES Professor Peter Pauzauskie’s team has developed a fast, cheap method to make supercapacitor electrodes for electric cars, high-powered lasers. From UW Today: Supercapacitors are an aptly named type of device that can store and deliver energy faster than conventional batteries. They are in high demand for applications including electric cars, wireless telecommunications and high-powered… Read More…
