Rice University is the common name for William Marsh Rice Institute for the Advancement of Letters, Science and Art. It was established in 1891 and opened in 1912 in Houston, Texas. Rice University has approximately 5200 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students. Rice University is noted for its applied science programs including Nanotechnology, artificial heart research, structural chemical analysis and space science. The Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology was renamed for Nobel Prize winner, Richard E. Smalley a Rice professor. Later the Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology was created. Rice University welcomes public and press inquiries.
Tiny octopods catalyze bright ideas: Study shows plasmonic sensors and catalysts need not be mutually exclusive
Nanoscale octopods that do double duty as catalysts and plasmonic sensors are lighting a path toward more efficient industrial processes, according to a Rice University scientist.
