Liquid Light Inc., a startup of 26 people located in Monmouth Junction, N.J., is developing technology to produce industrial chemicals and fuels from the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, a low-cost and abundant carbon source.
Physics professor Michael Romalis and his team have developed some of the world’s most sensitive magnetometers for the detection of landmines to the diagnosis of health conditions, such as epilepsy and cardiac arrhythmias.
Tom Muir, Princeton’s Van Zandt Williams Jr. Class of 1965 Professor of Chemistry, and his collaborators have developed a new technique for fastening these targeting molecules to drugs and building these so-called drug-antibody conjugates.
Portable sensors for detecting greenhouse gases and other pollutants are being developed by a team led by Mark Zondlo, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering.
Christodoulos Floudas in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and his team have come up with a new process for characterizing which materials are best for separating carbon dioxide from the gas streams of various sources such as natural gas and coal-based power plants.
Megan McClean has built a robotic bioreactor system that a researcher can use to produce a preset amount of protein in yeast.
A student team (pictured) created a refreshment product based on on barley tea, which has long enjoyed a following in Asia but is relatively unknown in the U.S. market. The team developed their business plan and sample product with the help of Princeton’s eLab, one of several programs that offer entrepreneurial training for undergraduates.
A new microscope produces high-quality 3-D images by observing subjects as they flow through a liquid channel beneath the microscope’s lens. The new microscope is especially useful for the life sciences, according to Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering Jason Fleischer, because it allows living animals to move in an aquatic, stress-free environment.
Studies show Amazon deforestation could result in water and food shortages in the western United States.
Narrow stripes of dirt and rock at the base of a glacier may play an important role in buffering the effects of a warming climate.
Researchers are studying how to foster the co-existence of people and African Wild Dogs, an endangered species that disappeared from a region of central Kenya in the 1980s but has since returned.
