  • Triblock spheres provide a simple path to complex structures

    Illinois researchers, from left, doctoral student Qian Chen, research scientist Sung Chul Bae and Steve Granick, professor of materials science and engineering and of physics, developed tiny, simple spheres that self-assemble into intricate structures, such as a lattice that could function as a filter.
