Re-examining longstanding beliefs about the physics of these devices, Princeton engineers have now shown that carefully restricting the delivery of power to certain areas within a laser could boost its output by many orders of magnitude.
BioNano Genomics, a company that uses technology developed at Princeton University for high quality genome analysis, announced the purchase of its Irys™ System by several genomics research centers, including the Salk Institute, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), NIH Intramural Sequencing Center (NISC) and Genoscope (The French National Sequencing Center), according to an article in PRN Newswire.
BioNano Genomics, a company founded in part using innovations developed at Princeton, announced today achievement of a major milestone for the Irys system: the ability to collect human data at 30X depth, sufficient for a genome map, in 24 hours on a single chip. The one human : one chip : one day was announced at the American Society for Human Genetics (ASHG) 2014 Meeting October 18-22 in San Diego.
A new center for small-molecule screening has opened on the Princeton campus. The facility offers researchers the ability to rapidly test large numbers of molecules and identify ones that may have therapeutic potential or aid in biomedical research.
Princeton University's Office of Technology Licensing has named W. Bradford Middlekauff as its first executive in residence, a position aimed at offering an entrepreneurial and industry-based perspective to the faculty and students involved in the transfer of University discoveries to the marketplace.
Four Princeton University physicists were among 19 scientists nationwide to receive five-year, $1.8 million awards from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation intended to support "ambitious, high-risk research" in quantum materials: M. Zahid Hasan, a professor of physics; Nai Phuan Ong, the Eugene Higgins Professor of Physics and director of the Princeton Center for Complex Materials; Jason Petta, an associate professor of physics; and Ali Yazdani, a professor of physics.
Capping decades of searching, Princeton scientists observe elusive particle that is its own antiparticle
Princeton University scientists have observed an exotic particle that behaves simultaneously like matter and antimatter, a feat of math and engineering that could yield powerful computers based on quantum mechanics. The team, which includes researchers from the University of Texas-Austin, published a report in the journal Science.
Recent Princeton University postdoctoral researchers Jeremy Palmer, of chemical and biological engineering, and Knut Drescher, of molecular biology, received 2014 Blavatnik Regional Awards for Young Scientists, which recognize outstanding postdoctoral scientists in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.
Princeton University faculty members Carlos Brody, a professor of molecular biology, and Sebastian Seung, a professor of computer science, are among the first group of researchers worldwide selected by the National Institutes of Health to receive an overall $46 million in funds related to the federal BRAIN Initiative. Brody and Seung are both affiliated with the Princeton Neuroscience Institute (PNI). Announced in 2013, the BRAIN (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) In
Princeton University researchers have developed a new method to increase the brightness, efficiency and clarity of LEDs, which are widely used on smartphones and portable electronics as well as becoming increasingly common in lighting.
Princeton University researchers Robert Cava, Loren Pfeiffer and Mansour Shayegan have been chosen as Moore Materials Synthesis Investigators by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
Researchers at Princeton University have begun crystallizing light as part of an effort to answer fundamental questions about the physics of matter.
Jin Liu, Director of the new Princeton Center in China is available to help University community members with a range of services in China, including travel and housing arrangements; event planning; translation services; finding meeting spaces; and obtaining access to Chinese archives or scientific labs at Chinese universities for academic research.
Princeton and Columbia universities have proposed a method that could allow scientists to customize and grow highly purified crystals, known as photonic crystals, with relative ease.
Princeton University mathematician Manjul Bhargava was awarded the 2014 Fields Medal, often referred to as the "Nobel Prize of mathematics," in recognition of his work in the geometry of numbers.
Gerard Wysocki of Princeton University discusses his laser technology for detecting nitric oxide in the breath as a way for doctors to monitor patient health.
In the first evidence that natural selection favors an individual's infection tolerance, researchers from Princeton University and the University of Edinburgh have found that an animal's ability to endure an internal parasite strongly influences its reproductive success.
Moses Charikar, a professor of computer science and Anatoly Spitkovsky, an associate professor of astrophysical sciences have been selected to receive 2014 Simons Investigators awards.
The "Art of Science 2014" exhibit in the Friend Center on the Princeton University campus consists of 44 images and 12 videos of artistic merit created during the course of scientific research. The works, part of a recurring show now in its seventh iteration, were chosen from more than 250 images and 50 videos submitted from over 25 departments across the University. This video offers a cross-section of the artwork on display.
People choosing between two or more equally positive outcomes experience paradoxical feelings of pleasure and anxiety, feelings associated with activity in different regions of the brain, according to research led by Amitai Shenhav, an associate research scholar at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute at Princeton University.
