Halas' Nanoshells on cover of the NNI Budget Supplement

 2015 NNI Budget Cover

Nanoshells, invented by Naomi Halas, have been chosen for the front and back covers of the National Nanotechnology Initiative's (NNI) 2015 budget supplement. This document is a supplement to the White House's 2015 request to Congress, which call for $1.5 billion in NNI funding.

Emilie Ringe

Welcome to Emilie Ringe, Assistant Professor of Materials Science and NanoEngineering. Ringe's "atom-by-atom nanoengineering lab" will focus research on identifying and characterizing the structural and compositional features of nanomaterials that critically control sensing, plasmonic light localization, and catalysis. To approach the interdisciplinary field of nanoengineeering, Ringe's group use a variety of advanced techniques, with a special focus on state-of-the-art electron-beam spectroscopy, theoretical modelling, and optical techniques.
