Caption: Greg Engel, University of Chicago associate professor in chemistry, is pictured here tuning a femtosecond laser system used to dissect couplings between nanocrystals. Understanding emergent properties arising from strong coupling between different nanomaterials could lead to theoretical and technological advances. "The goal is to come up with ideas and try to push them as far as you possibly can," Engel said.
