A Cornell collaboration has found a way to grow a single crystalline layer of alpha-aluminum gallium oxide that has the widest energy bandgap to date – a discovery that clears the way for new semiconductors that will handle higher voltages, higher power densities and higher frequencies than previously seen.
The grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s Just Futures Initiative will bring together scholars from across the university and beyond to study the links between racism, dispossession and migration.
In a proof-of-principle study, Cornell researchers describe a new technique in which they analyzed environmental DNA – or eDNA – from water samples in Cayuga Lake to gather nuanced information about the presence of invasive round goby fish.
Benjamin Z. Houlton, the Ronald P. Lynch Dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, joined a panel helping to identify key pathways for terrestrial carbon dioxide removal that merit further investment.
A new study describes a breakthrough method for imaging the physical and chemical interactions that sequester carbon in soil at near atomic scales, which may have implications for mitigating climate change.
