Instead of protons “hopping” over barriers from point A to B, new research by professor Paul Champion and his team reveals for the first time that protons actually tunnel through these barriers. This discovery upends a centuries-old belief about how protons behave.
Physics professor Don Heiman authored a paper in Nature that describes his work making topological insulators more feasible for use in everything from iPhones to quantum computing.
Bridget Salna, 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.
Northeastern Professor Tomasz Taylor is a master of theoretical elementary particle physics, and his successful career reflects that.
The College of Science would like to congratulate Northeastern University Distinguished Prof. Srinivas Sridhar for receiving the 2016 Biomedical Engineering Society Diversity Award.
Nicholas Haubrich has been a busy man while on co-op. When he’s not working long hours on location, he’s traveling through Europe.
Associate dean and physics professor George Alverson received an award from CERN.
Sternberg Distinguished University Professor Alessandro Vespignani tells NPR that he doesn’t believe Zika poses a big enough risk to move the Olympic games out of Rio this summer.
In a paper published in Nature Chemistry, Northeastern University physics professor Paul Champion, uses ultrafast laser technology to determine how physics and chemistry combine to make biology happen.
Can a flow of information across Twitter signal when a momentous event is about to occur? Northeastern’s Alessandro Vespignani and an interdisciplinary group of scientists developed a method to find out. Their findings represent an initial step in constructing models to detect trouble before it’s too late.
