  Penn Engineers Use 'Soft' Nanoparticles to Model Behavior at Interfaces
A team of Penn Engineers has now shown how to make nanoparticles that are attracted to this interface but not to each other, creating a system that acts as a two-dimensional liquid. By measuring this liquid’s pressure and density, they have shown a way forward in using it for a variety of applications, such as in nanomanufacturing, catalysis and photonic devices.

Bubbles for Medicine

"I tell my children that I am working with bubbles and they think I have the best job in the world – which I do!" says Daeyeon Lee, Associate Professor of CBE. By learning how to modify the air and water interface, Lee is able to make "perfect" bubbles that have potential to enhance biomedical imaging and ultrasound therapy. Learn more!

Crystals That Can Switch Configurations

John Crocker’s team has made a crystal that rearranges itself into a stronger, more stable configuration, all by changing the mix of DNA strands on the spheres' exterior.Check it out!
