Revolutionary Nano “Alphabet Soup” Created by UCLA Scientists

Lead Scientist Dr. Thomas G. Mason to Give “LithoParticles” IP Presentation at Upcoming TechConnect Summit in May

UCLA professor Thomas G. Mason and chemistry graduate student Carlos J. Hernandez have designed and mass-produced billions of fluorescent microscale particles in the shapes of all 26 letters of the alphabet in a “colloidal alphabet soup.”

Last week, UCLA scientists announced that they have created a nano “alphabet soup,” with all 26 letters formed and mass-produced by using billions of fluorescent microscale particles. The letters were formed from solid polymeric materials that were dispersed in liquid solution. The lead researchers--Dr. Thomas G. Mason, UCLA Professor, and chemistry graduate student Carlos J. Hernandez—believe that their “LithoParticles” have great potential for both technological and scientific applications, such as tagging cells inside humans.

Dr. Mason will be giving a “LithoParticles” technology presentation to an audience of leading global business, investment, and academic representatives at the upcoming TechConnect Summit 2007, to be held May 23-24 in Santa Clara, California.
