A research team jointly led by NanoEngineering professors, Ping Liu and Shyue Ping Ong, have discovered a new anode material known as disordered rocksalt. This new anode material enables lithium-ion batteries to safely recharge within minutes for thousands of cycles. 

NanoEngineering professor, Nicole Steinmetz, and her Center for Nano-Immunoengineering have received a grant to work toward developing a new treatment for liver cancer by combining ablation with immunotherapy from a plant virus. This development will improve long-term results of ablation and,…

Researchers led by Nanoengineering professor, Nicole Steinmetz, have developed a more targeted way to deliver pesticides to food crops. Using a plant virus as a nanocarrier will result in decreasing the amount of required pesticide and reducing the chemical accumulation in our food and water.…

NanoEngineering professor, Shirley Meng, along with other scientists from UC San Diego and Idaho National Laboratory, have discovered a noncystalline "glassy" lithium that had never previously been observed. This development was encountered while investigating the first moments of lithium…

NanoEngineering professor, Sheng Xu and his research lab have developed a new method to fabricate perovskites as single-crystal thin films.  This new method results in the perovskites showing fewer defects, enhanced stability and more efficiency for use in solar cells and optical devices.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in researchers designing a high number of vaccines. New nanotechnologies has been playing a large role in these designs. NanoEngineering professor, Nicole Steinmetz and her lab have been key players in these advances by developing vaccines using plant viruses…

NanoEngineering Program Receives ABET Accreditation

The NanoEngineering program (B.S.) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.orgABET is the global accreditor of college and university programs in applied and natural science, computing, engineering and engineering technology. UC San Diego's NanoEngineering program is the first of its kind in the nation to receive this accreditation. Our NanoEngineering students can feel confident that their education meets global standards and that they will be prepared to enter the workforce worldwide.

ABET accreditation assures that programs meet standards to produce graduates ready to enter critical technical fields that are leading the way in innovation and emerging technologies, and anticipating the welfare and safety needs of the public. Please visit the ABET website for more information on why accreditation matters.

Congratulations to the NanoEngineering department and students!
