Fast and fragile: Two new studies explain the strange electron flow in future materials .
Crystalline materials known as topological insulators conduct surface current perfectly, except when they don't. In two new studies published in the journal Science, Princeton researchers and their collaborators explain how these "fragile" poorly conducting topological states form, and how conductivity can be restored.
Fragile fragments: Marina Rustow unpacks daily life in medieval Egypt .
Historian Marina Rustow has immersed herself in a unique cache of documents known as the Cairo Geniza, which were hidden for centuries in an Egyptian synagogue.
Researchers uncover potential cancer-causing mutations in genes’ control switches .
Using sophisticated algorithms to explore regions of the genome whose roles in cancer have been largely uncharted, an international team of researchers including from Princeton has opened the door to a new understanding of the disease’s genetic origins.
