The Programmable Matter (TM) Corporation is a research corporation based in Lakewood, Colorado. PMC was formed for the express purpose of exploring and developing dynamically configurable ismart materials and the technology associated with them. Through the application of geometric/insulative barriers and electric fields, it is possible to manipulate the electron structure of semiconductor materials, and thus alter their electrical, optical, thermal, and magnetic properties in real time. Applications are virtually limitless, but include photovoltaics, color-changing materials, thermal and optical switches, switchable magnets, thermoelectric devices (e.g., solid-state coolers), and emissive or reflective displays.
Siyu Chen, Ph.D.
In this interview, we discuss a new approach to surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy that utilizes nano-pockets to capture target molecules, ensuring a highly sensitive way to detect chemical processes.
Dr. Yitong Dong
Dr. Yitong Dong has recently been awarded funding to study custom composite nanocrystals, which could help to create advanced quantum communication technologies. Learn more about this project in this interview.
Roey Elnathan, Ph.D.
We take a closer look at the fusion of nanotechnology and CAR-T therapy through our interview with Dr. Roey Elnathan about a new approach that harnesses the capabilities of nanoneedles to efficiently deliver genetic materials to target cells.
