IPrime's Tsapatsis (NMP) and Norris (NMP and REM) Publish Back-To-Back Articles in Science


The July 31 issue of Science contains back-to-back articles from IPrime researchers. In the first article, the Tsapatsis group (NMP) reports a method to eliminate defects from porous zeolite membranes that have applications in the filtration and separation of small molecules [1]. In the second article, the Norris group (NMP & REM), in collaboration with the Oh group from Electrical and Computer Engineering, describes a simple technique to create ultrasmooth patterned metals for applications in plasmonics and metamaterials [2].
