An artist’s representation showing an electron beam (in purple) being used to create a 2D superlattice made up of quantum dots having extraordinary atomic-scale precision and placement. Professor Kaustav Banerjee and his team of researchers at UCSB were able to size and position the quantum dots so precisely that when they were excited with lasers, they emitted light over a range of frequencies to spell out the letters “UCSB” (upper right).

A light micrograph shows individuals of a Botryllus schlosseri colony that have arranged themselves into a star-shaped structure called a "system." A colony can consist of multiple systems, all connected by a large common external vasculature. Here, the vasculature can be seen extending out at the edge of the colony and terminating in sac-like appendages called ampullae. Photograph by Delany Rodriguez
