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.
Rice University researchers have added a new dimension to their breakthrough technique that expands the capabilities of standard laboratory microscopes.

Laser-induced graphene (LIG), a flaky foam of the atom-thick carbon, has many interesting properties on its own but gains new powers as part of a composite.
Anybody looking for a Valentine's Day date in cyberspace might want to consider this prediction from an evolutionary biologist: Online dating could affect how humans evolve in the future.
As below, so above. That seems to be an operating principle for molecules that start with a basic chirality—or "handed-ness"—and pass it on as they combine into larger structures.
Proteins fold according to a script written in the pattern of their amino acids. But to function properly, some parts must ad-lib.
Rice University scientists have given organic chemists a boost with their latest discovery of a one-step method to add nitrogen to compounds for drugs, pesticides, fertilizers and other products.
When Rice University chemist and engineer Hossein Robatjazi set out to marry a molecular sieve called MOF to a plasmonic aluminum nanoparticle two years ago, he never imagined the key would be the same process nature uses ...
A ceramic that becomes more electrically conductive under elastic strain and less conductive under plastic strain could lead to a new generation of sensors embedded into structures like buildings, bridges and aircraft able ...
Here's a lesson for chief financial officers: If you talk like your boss talks, the authors of a new study have found you'll probably make more money.
