An intercampus project linking UC campuses in Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and Irvine will examine Botryllus schlosseri, seeking insights into the human vascular system.
A light micrograph shows individuals of a Botryllus schlosseri colony that have arranged themselves into a star-shaped structure called a "system." A colony can consist of multiple systems, all connected by a large common external vasculature. Here, the vasculature can be seen extending out at the edge of the colony and terminating in sac-like appendages called ampullae. Photograph by Delany Rodriguez

Schematic illustration of Shockley-Read-Hall (SRH) recombination due to iron in GaN. Iron is a deep acceptor with a defect level (black line) close to the GaN conduction band (green). The charge density corresponding to this localized level is illustrated in the middle of the figure. Conventional SRH recombination (left) would proceed via electron capture from the conduction band into the defect level, but the overall rate would be limited by slow capture of holes because the defect level is far from the valence band (blue). The presence of excited states enhances the hole capture rate (right) such that the overall SRH recombination process becomes very efficient.
