Focus: Celebrated Optical Trick Goes Vibrational

Author(s): David Lindley A micromechanical device generates a series of precise, equally spaced vibration frequencies, analogous to the light of the “optical frequency comb,” which has dramatically improved precision measurements. [Physics 10, 4] Published Tue Jan 17, 2017

The value of basic research

How can we measure the worth of scientific knowledge? Economic analysts give it a shot.

Eric Dahl, Anna Grassellino honored with Presidential Early Career Awards

The Presidential Early Career Awards highlight the key role that the administration places in encouraging and accelerating American innovation to grow our economy and tackle our greatest challenges.

The value of basic research

How can we measure the worth of scientific knowledge? Before building any large piece of infrastructure, potential investors or representatives from funding agencies or governments have to decide whether it’s worth it. Teams of economists...Show More Summary

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity to observe particle properties that have no realization in elementary particles. Show More Summary

A new twist on fusion power could help bring limitless clean energy

In a world struggling to kick its addiction to fossil fuels and feed its growing appetite for energy, there's one technology in development that almost sounds too good to be true: nuclear fusion.

Flexible ferroelectrics bring two material worlds together

Until recently, "flexible ferroelectrics" could have been thought of as the same type of oxymoronic phrase. However, thanks to a new discovery by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory in collaboration with...Show More Summary

First-ever X-ray image capture of material defect process

From blacksmiths forging iron to artisans blowing glass, humans have for centuries been changing the properties of materials to build better tools – from iron horseshoes and swords to glass jars and medicine vials.

Theory lends transparency to how glass breaks

Over time, when a metallic glass is put under stress, its atoms will shift, slide and ultimately form bands that leave the material more prone to breaking. Rice University scientists have developed new computational methods based on a general theory of glasses to explain why.
