Princeton University was one of 12 institutions nationwide to receive a total of $56 million in funds from the National Science Foundation to support Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (MRSECs).
The winter 2015 issue of EQuad News highlights the strong and growing interest in entrepreneurship at Princeton. In an essay, Professor Mung Chiang discusses ongoing planning around "Entrepreneurship the Princeton Way" as a lead-in to stories about student, faculty and alumni initiatives that do not just seek start businesses, but to make a positive impact for society.
Sophomore-level course, open to students from all disciplines, allows undergraduates to work with a team of successful entrepreneurs to "develop their thinking and sophistication about how entrepreneurship plays out."
Princeton University researchers have uncovered a previously unknown, and possibly substantial, source of the greenhouse gas methane to the Earth's atmosphere.
The Siebel Scholars Foundation awarded five fellowships to Princeton University graduate students in computer science as part of its annual commitment to support the most talented students at the world’s leading graduate schools of business, computer science and bioengineering.
Re-examining longstanding beliefs about the physics of lasers, engineers have shown that carefully restricting the delivery of power to certain areas within a laser could boost its output by many orders of magnitude.
In this issue of Ideas Illustrated, Princeton scientists grapple with the profound challenge of seeing Earth-like planets orbiting distant stars.
The National Institutes of Health has awarded a $2.43 million grant to Princeton engineer Michael McAlpine, to investigate new ways to interweave electronic and biological materials to ultimately produce bionic organs for a range of scientific and biomedical applications.
Using a new nanoscale structure, the researchers, led by electrical engineering professor Stephen Chou, increased the brightness and efficiency of LEDs made of organic materials (flexible carbon-based sheets) by 57 percent.
The 363 engineering students represent 28 percent of the incoming class of 2018, and engineering students across all four years make up about 25 percent of the undergraduate enrollment.
The team's findings are part of an effort to answer fundamental questions about atomic behavior by creating a device that can simulate the behavior of subatomic particles. Such a tool could be an invaluable method for answering questions about atoms and molecules that are not answerable even with today's most advanced computers.
Princeton researchers have demonstrated that bubbles bursting at the surface of a liquid don't just spray particles upward but also push some down into the liquid -- a finding with potentially broad industrial uses.
Subhash Khot, who earned a Ph.D. from Princeton’s Department of Computer Science in 2003, has won the Rolf Nevanlinna Prize, awarded every four years for outstanding contributions in mathematical aspects of information sciences.
Seven student teams presented their business ideas at the Keller Center's annual Demo Day Aug. 11 and 12, the culmination of the center's eLab summer accelerator program.
Princeton University researchers have developed a way to use a laser to measure people's blood sugar, and, with more work to shrink the laser system to a portable size, the technique could allow diabetics to check their condition without pricking themselves to draw blood.
