QMO Lab (University of California, Riverside)


We are a research lab at the University of California Riverside, and our focus is on Quantum Materials Optoelectronics (QMO). At atomic and sub-atomic scales, quantum mechanics describes reality. The theory of quantum mechanics is among the most successful scientific theories, exhibiting not one single contradiction in nearly a century since its inception. Yet, when atoms are combined to form highly complex structures - such as synthetic quantum materials or biological macro-molecules - the connection between microscopic phenomena and emergent macroscopic behaviors is lost. Indeed, hierarchical complexity defies a unified physical description. Gabor Research Laboratories aim to discover new phenomena - both quantum and classical - that may arise within and at the interface between quantum condensed matter and complex biological systems. As scientists at the boundary of physics and biology, we have a unique opportunity to unite our understanding of quantum mechanics with the complex and diverse biophysical properties and behaviors of life.

Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL)
Structural Biology, Cell Signaling and Communications, Biomolecular Pathways


The Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) is a Department of Energy, Office of Science, User Facility sponsored by the Biological and Environmental Research (BER) program. At EMSL, our scientists focus on fundamental biological and environmental research. We collaborate on projects with researchers from academia, other government laboratories, and industry. Scientists around the world can partner with us to use our world-class laboratory space, expertise, and equipment—for free—if their research proposal is accepted through our peer-review process. Opportunities to work with us are available throughout the year. See our Proposals page for more information.

nanofiltration, membrane, separation tech, vegetable oil, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, membrane filtration, and solvent-resistant nanofiltration


SEPPURE creates sustainable nanofiltration solutions to separate chemical mixtures at a molecular level with minimal energy use.
Up to 15% of the world’s total energy is spent on industrial-scale chemical separations. This is economically and environmentally inefficient. SEPPURE is disrupting the energy-intensive chemical separation processes, such as distillation and evaporation, through the introduction of novel chemical-resistant nanofiltration membranes. SEPPURE’s sustainable process does not use heat, thus lowering global energy use, emissions, and pollution substantially.

DataPhysics Instruments GmbH
measuring instruments


Dataphysics Instruments GmbH develops and distributes highly specialized, application targeted measuring instruments within the field of surface and interfacial science.

Our extended range of analysis equipment allows the non-destructive determination of chemical and physical properties of solid substrates and liquids surfaces as well as interfaces between different states of aggregation.

Our product range comprises optical drop contour analysis systems and contact angle measuring devices, balance-based tensiometers, as well as spinning drop tensiometers and analysis systems for multiphase component emulsions or dispersion.

The measuring devices are complemented by an extensive array of accessories and extensions like for example a humidity generator. Hence a tailor-made combination of measuring device and accessories can easily be found to take on your individual surface and interfacial measuring challenges.

National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network
integrated networked partnership of user facilities


The National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) is an integrated networked partnership of user facilities, supported by the National Science Foundation, serving the needs of nanoscale science, engineering and technology.

The mission of NNIN is to enable rapid advancements in science, engineering and technology at the nano-scale by efficient access to Nanotechnology infrastructure. We provide shared open, geographically distributed laboratories, each with specific areas of technical excellence, and provide fabrication, synthesis, characterization, and integration resources to build structures, devices, and systems from atomic to complex large-scales. Our users belong to diverse areas: astronomy, plant pathology, materials science, physics, chemistry, life-sciences, various branches of engineering, etc., and come from academe, national laboratories, and industry. Projects may be short term or long term, from Academic or Industry, and range from pure research to prototype product development. Users can perform research on-site using facility equipment, training and staff support. For many tasks, remote usage is also feasible. External users typically spend a week or two, or commute, to complete their work although longer visits are possible. We help users succeed by providing strong pre-visit technical interaction, mechanisms that let users protect their intellectual property, and strong training and knowledge support.

Our laboratory has developed novel DNA-based "fluorescence nanobarcodes" that can rapidly identify multiple pathogens simultaneously in a single assay. These DNA nanobarcodes are formed from branched DNA via a novel self-assembly process. Each DNA nanobarcode carries a unique fluorescence color ratio – for example, 1 green dye and 2 red dyes (1G2R), or 4 green dyes and 1 red dye (4G1R). This allows us to distinguish among a large number of different targets using only two colors. Since our nanobarcodes are made entirely from DNA, they can be easily interfaced with biological systems. For instance we can use DNA nanobarcodes to detect pathogen biomarkers in order to diagnose infectious diseases.
