Electrons obey social distancing in ‘strange’ metals

A Cornell-led collaboration has used state-of-the-art computational tools to model the chaotic behavior of Planckian, or “strange,” metals. This behavior has long intrigued physicists, but they have not been able to simulate it down to the lowest possible temperature until now.

Smile: Atomic imaging finds root of tooth decay

A collaboration between researchers from Cornell, Northwestern University and University of Virgina combined complementary imaging techniques to explore the atomic structure of human enamel, exposing tiny chemical flaws in the fundamental building blocks of our teeth.

Scientists track plant diseases riding across globe with dust

A multidisciplinary, Cornell-led team of scientists will study how plant pathogens that travel the globe with dust particles might put crops at risk, especially in places where people struggle to eat.

Milky Way neutron star pair illuminates cosmic cataclysms

A pair of binary neutron stars in the Milky Way galaxy – discovered by a pulsar survey developed at Cornell – is giving researchers a front-row seat what may be the stars’ eventual cataclysmic merger.

From fashion to fertility: CCMR pairs NY startups with faculty

The Cornell Center for Materials Research is helping startup companies create new, innovative products by connecting them with university researchers while also boosting economic development in New York state.

Astronomer Martha Haynes awarded Jansky Lectureship

The Jansky Lectureship recognizes outstanding contributions to the advancement of radio astronomy and is being awarded to Haynes “for her influential impact to our understanding of galaxies.”

When imaging atoms, blurrier is better

Cornell researchers developed a new form of electron microscopy that uses complex algorithms to achieve faster, more efficient imaging – and they obtained the best results by defocusing their detector and blurring the beam.

Engineering blog highlights student learning experiences

A new blog from Cornell Engineering, the ELI edublog, offers a window into how the college is enacting evidence-based, student-centered practices to support hundreds of undergraduates.
