Recent News and Events

Experimental searches for the electron electric-dipole moment (EDM) probe new physics beyond the standard model. The current best EDM limit was set by the ACME Collaboration, constraining time-reversal symmetry (T) violating physics at the TeV energy scale...


Contacting solids that move relative to each other in a fluid environment abound in many settings such as soft contact lenses in eyes, animal joints, and bearings in rotating machinery. Motion is inevitably accompanied by flow and deformation...


Siyuan Sun has been awarded the Frederick Sheldon Traveling Fellowship, and Monica Pate and Shubhayu Chatterjee have been awarded a GSAS Merit Fellowship.


JILA physicists have extended the capability of their powerful laser "combing" technique to identify the structures of large, complex molecules of the sort found in explosives, pharmaceuticals, fuels and the gases around stars...

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


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...


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...
