The W.M. Keck Foundation has awarded the UCSB campus $1,000,000 for a
project entitled: "Nanoelectrofluidic Systems: New Tools for
Nanoparticle Analysis." The PI's are: Sumita Pennathur (ME), Frederic Gibou (ME),
Todd Squires (ChemE), Paul Atzberger (Math and ME), and Andrew Cleland (Physics).
We are very excited about this team, and about the scientific
breakthroughs that this sort of funding will enable. The abstract of
this new project is given below:
