In June 2015 Rice University merged two of its multidisciplinary research institutes, the Richard E. Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology and the Rice Quantum Institute, to form a new entity, the Smalley-Curl Institute (SCI). The new Institute is the home of the Applied Physics Graduate Program and of several endowed postdoctoral research fellowships, and will establish strong industrial collaborations and foster new educational and outreach programs. It will assist its members in forging new, cross-cutting and interdisciplinary research areas and in seeking new means of supporting their work. Research in SCI encompasses advanced materials, quantum magnetism, plasmonics and photonics, biophysics and bioengineering, ultracold atom physics, condensed matter and chemical physics, and all aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
