David Nelson, together with Ariel Amir (SEAS; formerly Harvard Physics Junior Fellow) and Naomichi Hatano (U Tokio) analyzed the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of certain asymmetric tridiagonal matrices in a recent Phys. Rev. E article. The authors found a rich and complex behavior...


As population growth continues to outpace development of water infrastructure in many countries, desalination (the removal of salts from seawater) at high energy efficiency will likely become a vital source of fresh water. Due to its atomic thinness combined with its mechanical strength, porous graphene may be particularly well-suited for...


Graduate students Michael Coughlin and Christopher Frye won the 2016 Maurice and Gertrude Goldhaber Prize (for experimental and theoretical physics, respectively).


Metallic hydrogen has been produced in the laboratory in a diamond anvil cell at pressures in the 1.2 to 1.7 megabar regime and at high temperatures...


Graduate students David Levonian and Harry McNamara have won National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowships. NDSEG is awarded to U.S. citizens and nationals who intend to pursue a doctoral degree...


Little string theories are UV complete nonlocal six-dimensional theories decoupled from gravity in which there is an intrinsic string scale. In this paper, we present a systematic approach to the construction of supersymmetric LSTs...

The first results from the NOvA experiment, which set new constraints on charge-parity violation in neutrinos and on the ordering of neutrino masses, have been reported in the latest issue of Physical Review Letters. Those results are from the first search...


hydrogen deuteride (HD
Hydrogen and its isotopes, deuterium and hydrogen deuteride (HD), are the simplest and most abundant elements in the universe. At a sufficient pressure the solids are predicted to dissociate into atoms and become metallic with possible...
