New research by UNL physicists, which was published in the Sept. 12 online edition of Physical Review Letters now gives support to a long-posited but never-proven hypothesis that electrons in cosmic rays -- which are mostly left-handed -- preferentially destroyed left-handed precursors of DNA on the primordial Earth.
An $8 million renovation has converted UNL's 107-year-old Brace Laboratory into a facility dedicated to using innovative teaching methods to further undergraduate education.
Ivan Moreno is using a National Science Foundation Fellowship to charge his graduate research into solar energy. The May graduate is one of 10 UNL students to receive the NSF award, which provides recipients a stipend for three years.
A new study co-authored by a UNL physicist Tim Gay has uncovered some of the basic building blocks for understanding collisions between electrons and molecules.
