Dan Claes, professor and department chair of physics and astronomy, has been named a 2015 fellow of the American Physical Society.
UNL physicists Anthony Starace and Jean Marcel Ngoko Djiokap made a compelling discovery that graces the Sept. 11 cover of the journal Physical Review Letters.
Nebraska EPSCoR will bring in world-class speakers on atomic, molecular and optical physics Sept. 29. Registration is open through Sept. 21.
UNL researchers Evgeny Tsymbal (left) and Tula Paudel have determined why “6” is the magic number for an atomically thin material as part of a collaborative study spanning three continents and the pages of the journal Science.
UNL postdoctoral researcher Rebeca Gonzalez Suarez is overseeing the first data-yielding collisions at the Large Hadron Collider since the reboot of the world’s largest particle accelerator in April.
UNL has earned a $9.6 million grant from the National Science Foundation to support its Materials Research Science and Engineering Center and its nanotechnology research through 2020. A celebration of the award is 2:30 p.m. April 20 in Jorgensen Hall, Room 110.
Having already contributed to the most significant scientific discovery of the century, UNL researchers are undertaking greater leadership in the world’s grandest physics experiment with the revival of the Large Hadron Collider over Easter weekend.
In what can be viewed as an example of extreme cross-disciplinary collaboration, digital humanist Matthew Jockers (left) and physicist Aaron Dominguez have worked together for the past several years in a quest to quantify narrative structure.
Observing what happens in one-trillionth of a second takes precision and extremely fast devices. UNL physicists are helping reveal how light interacts with atoms, molecules and nanostructures, and their discoveries may one day lead to much faster computers, more efficient solar technology and other enhanced light-based technologies.
In collaboration with an international team of colleagues, two UNL physicists have helped reveal the atomic-level mechanisms of a specially fabricated material that could improve the efficiency of solar cells.
