CaSTL earns $20 million grant to observe molecules in action
The UC Irvine Center for Chemistry at the Space-Time Limit (CaSTL) has received a $20 million renewal award from the National Science Foundation to continue its ground-breaking work in pushing the limits of interrogating chemistry on ultrafast and ultra small scales. Ultimately, the goal is capture chemistry in the act on the single-molecule level.
