CNSI Debuts Brand-New Plasmonics Lab
Exciting news! The UCLA California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) introduced a brand-new lab at this morning’s “teach-the-teachers” workshop. For the first time ever, CNSI introduced local high school science teachers to a hands-on experiment about the optical properties of plasmonic nanoparticles. Teachers learned how to synthesize gold nanoparticles of various sizes by varying the synthesis conditions. They then explored the optical properties of these nanoparticles dispersed in solution. So cool!
