Using a microscope he developed, physicist Séamus Davis and his team have found an exotic state of quantum matter, originally thought to just exist in cuprates, in a more conventional type of material, which could lead to more discovery.
Francesco Sgarlata, a Klarman Postdoctoral Fellow in physics in the College of Arts and Sciences, is using his three-year fellowship to address the inconsistency of two pillar theories – general relativity and quantum mechanics.
Cornell researchers were able to stretch and twist individual molecules of a conjugated polymer and measure its mechanical and kinetic properties, gaining insights that could eventually lead to more flexible and robust soft electronic materials.
Elizabeth Kellogg, assistant professor of molecular biology and genetics in the College of Arts and Sciences, has been named to the Pew Scholars Program to pursue research into advancing gene editing capability.
A Cornell-led collaboration used wind speed data and the measured accelerations of a golden eagle outfitted with GPS technology to show that turbulence is a source of energy that birds may use to their advantage.
