In a paper published in Nature Physics, Northeastern University Department of Physics Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professor Alain Karma, in collaboration with his postdoctoral research associate Chih-Hung Chen and Professor Eran Bouchbinder of the Weizmann Institute of Science’s Chemical Physics Department, discovered the mechanism that causes cracks to behave strangely when they spread very rapidly in brittle materials.
Layering 2-D crystals is a little like building a club sandwich, says Northeastern physicist Swastik Kar. But a new discovery allows researchers to rearrange the ingredients, producing new properties and opening up a world of possibilities for new materials.
Physics Professor Darien Wood recently participated in a panel discussion at Fermilab examining the impact of hadron colliders.
Assistant Professor of Physics Paul Whitford sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about his research at Northeastern University.
Northeastern researchers touched on that question this week in a series of talks that examined renewing tissue function, improving and restoring motor control, and the remarkable memory power of superagers.
Christopher Lane, a Physics PhD candidate, sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about what it’s like to work and study at Northeastern University.
Matthews Distinguished University Professor of Physics Pran Nath says because of the monumental changes in particle physics in the past four decades, he decided to write a book.
Mark Williams, Professor of Physics, sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about his research at Northeastern University.
A number of philosophers, futurists, and technologists have come to believe that we are living in a computer-simulated world, kind of like a real-life version of The Matrix. But physics professor Dmitri Krioukov explains why he’s not part of that camp.
Associate professor of physics Brent Nelson has joined with several colleagues from around the world to argue that dark matter is not a weakly interacting massive particles.
