Seeing Protein Synthesis in the Field

Caltech researchers have developed a novel way to visualize proteins generated by microorganisms in their natural environment—including the murky waters of Caltech's lily pond.

Checking the First Data from OCO-2

Caltech researchers work to make sure that NASA's newly launched satellite provides accurate data about carbon dioxide levels in our atmosphere.

Study of Aerosols Stands to Improve Climate Models

Researchers from Caltech and JPL have provided a global observational study of the effect that changes in aerosol levels have on low-level marine clouds.

Watching Nanoscale Fluids Flow

Researchers at Caltech have applied a new imaging technique called four-dimensional (4D) electron microscopy to studying nanofluid dynamics. In a paper appearing in the June 27 issue of Science, Ahmed Zewail, the Linus Pauling Professor of Chemistry and professor of physics, and Ulrich Lorenz, a postdoctoral scholar in chemistry, describe how they visualized and monitored the flow of molten lead within a single zinc oxide nanotube in real time and space.

Growing Unknown Microbes One by One

A new technique developed at Caltech helps grow individual species of the unknown microbes that live in the human body.

Jacqueline Barton Receives Priestley Medal from ACS

On June 10, the American Chemical Society (ACS) announced that in 2015 it will award its highest honor, the Priestley Medal, to Jacqueline K. Barton. Barton is Caltech's Arthur and Marian Hanisch Memorial Professor of Chemistry, and chair of the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering.

40-Year Service Awardees

The 59th Annual Staff Service Awards, presented in Beckman Auditorium on Monday, June 2, honored more than 250 staff members whose service ranges from 10 to 50 years. We profile three staff members celebrating 40 years at Caltech.

Chemical Engineer Mark Davis Wins Prince of Asturias Award

Davis was recognized for contributions to the development of microporous and mesoporous materials and various applications of these materials from the petrochemical industry to healthcare.

JCAP Stabilizes Common Semiconductors For Solar Fuels Generation

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.

New Gift Helps Caltech Address Global Challenges in Clean Energy and Sustainability

A new $15 million gift by Lynda and Stewart Resnick in support of the Resnick Sustainability Institute at Caltech will help scientists and engineers advance research aimed at helping humanity sustainably meet its needs.
