A collaboration between Princeton engineers and the Princeton Plasma Physics lab is creating a more accurate understanding of how building materials such as black or white roofs affect energy use.
Power-in-a-Box (TM) is an easily deployable standard shipping container outfitted with solar panels and a telescoping wind turbine for generating electricity in remote or disaster-torn regions.
A team of five Princeton engineering graduate students is leading a yearlong field research project using new laser sensors to measure pollutants with unprecedented sensitivity.
In research initiated by an undergraduate, Princeton engineers discovered that elephants' hair is not merely a decorative feature for pulchritudinous pachyderms; it also plays an important role in how the giant beasts regulate their body temperatures.
Converting a standard shipping container into a sustainable source of energy for remote or disaster-torn regions, a team of Princeton University students took top honors in an 18-month national competition that culminated April 21 and 22 on the Washington, D.C., Mall.
The Jan. 12 earthquake in Haiti inspired a team of Princeton researchers to launch develop, deploy and test two novel disaster-relief technologies -- a rainwater harvester and filtration system, and a wind turbine for renewable energy production.
