Princeton University researchers have developed a computational model for creating a "perfect glass" that never crystallizes — even at absolute zero. Published in Scientific Reports, the model is a new way of thinking about glass and details the extremely unusual properties of a perfect glass.
Discovery: Research at Princeton magazine features stories about faculty members and their teams of students and postdocs who are charting new territory and uncovering knowledge in science and engineering as well as the humanities, social sciences and the arts.
Research projects with the potential to benefit society that were on display at Celebrate Princeton Invention, an annual event held Thursday, Nov. 10. The event honored the over 350 Princeton faculty members, staff researchers and students who over the past year have made discoveries or advances in the natural sciences and engineering that have the potential to be further developed into technologies valuable to the public.
The Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University awards seed funding to catalyze and support projects proposed by University faculty, researchers, and students that are aimed at solving a broad range of energy and environmental problems. These projects foster innovative research, teaching, and mentorship in energy and the environment.
Max Wilson, Ph.D., a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Molecular Biology, has received a $50,000 Innovation Grant from New Jersey Health Foundation (NJHF) to advance two projects aimed at controlling cell behavior to improve treatments for a wide range of disease entities.
New imaging and fabrication facilities for the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM) were unveiled during a daylong event Oct. 26 at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment. The power of the new facilities comes from a combination of the sophisticated building that houses them, the highly skilled research staff members who run them, and the equipment itself.
Inaugural 'TigerTalks in the City' bring Princeton faculty to New York with focus on entrepreneurship
Earlier this month, faculty members from a variety of disciplines discussed big data and privacy for the inaugural “TigerTalks in the City" — a quarterly series designed to bring Princeton research with an entrepreneurship focus to New York.
Researchers at Princeton University and the University of Texas-Austin found that electrons, when kept at very low temperatures where their quantum behaviors emerge, can spontaneously begin to travel in elliptical paths on the surface of a crystal of bismuth.
Princeton scientists learn how bacteria construct a biofilm fortress, cell by cell. When encased in biofilms in the human body, bacteria are a thousand times less susceptible to antibiotics, making infections such as pneumonia difficult to treat and potentially lethal.
Researchers analyzing storm data such as from Hurricane Sandy in 2012 have created a computer simulation that estimates that storm-related flooding along the New York City/ New Jersey coastline is likely to become more common in coming decades.
Professor Craig Arnold became director of the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM) on January 1st. The Institute recently installed cutting-edge imaging equipment in the new Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment building, including a microscope that is capable of imaging individual atoms and is one of only four of its kind in the world.
This summer, 30 students worked at 19 early-stage startup companies in New York City as part of the Keller Center's new Princeton Start-Up Immersion Program (PSIP). Participants lived as a group and, through their daily work with startup companies, experienced the fast-paced world of entrepreneurs and emerging businesses.
A feature story about Leadership Enterprise for a Diverse America (LEDA) and the program's Aspects of Leadership Summer Institute hosted on Princeton's campus. Read about how LEDA is dedicated to developing the leadership and academic potential of high school students from low-income backgrounds. 100 high school students from across the country spent this summer on Princeton's campus taking classes on leadership, receiving college counseling and hearing firsthand from higher education leaders, i
Princeton University researchers have built a new computer chip that promises to boost performance of data centers that lie at the core of online services from email to social media.
Salvatore Torquato, a Professor of Chemistry at Princeton University, has received the Joel Henry Hildebrand Award in Theoretical and Experimental Chemistry of Liquids administered by the American Chemical Society.
Princeton researchers have unveiled a new method for transforming individual selfies. The method can modify a person’s face to look as though it were photographed from farther away, like at the distances opted for by professional photographers.
Engineering professor Stephen Chou and associate research scholar Liangcheng Zhou are collaborating with U.S. government labs to develop a more rapid, accurate and inexpensive test for the Ebola virus, with the aim of identifying infections before carriers become symptomatic and contagious.
Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment partners with U.S. Army on sustainable energy and environmental issues and research
The Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University recently signed an agreement with the Picatinny Arsenal Garrison and the U.S. Army's Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center establishing future dialogue and research collaboration.
Mahmoud Mahmoudian has been appointed an Executive in Residence (XIR) in Princeton University's Office of Technology Licensing. Mahmoudian will provide advice to faculty, students and staff who have discoveries in the life sciences that could be applied to solve critical health challenges and improve clinical outcomes.
The Princeton Center for Theoretical Science (PCTS) held a conference in late May to celebrate its 10th anniversary. PCTS trains early-career researchers and provides a place where theoretical scientists — those who use mathematics to study the natural world — can tackle the biggest questions in science.
