The currently prevalent one-size-fits-all approach to designing digital products inadvertently - but inevitably - leads to discrimination by making some people systematically a little more likely to succeed than others...


Poster for Juan Maldacena, "Black holes, gravity, and quantum systems"
Explore black holes, gravity, and quantum systems in a series of Morris Loeb Lectures in Physics presented by Juan Maldacena, Carl Feinberg Professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, whose work focuses on quantum gravity...


In a recent paper in Physical Review B, graduate students Andrew Lucas and Jesse Crossno, Kin Chung Fong from Raytheon BBN Technologies, and professors Philip Kim and Subir Sachdev describe developing a general hydrodynamic framework...


Postdoc Vivek Venkatachalam, with the help of colleagues in Prof. Aravinthan Samuel's Lab, UMass Worcester, and University of Toronto, built a microscope capable of uncovering representations of sensory input and motor output of individual neurons...


Interactions between particles in quantum many-body systems can lead to collective behavior described by hydrodynamics. One such system is the electron-hole plasma in graphene near the charge neutrality point, which can form...


Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is a powerful tool for the structural analysis of organic compounds and biomolecules, which, unril now, typically required macroscopic sample quantities...


Prof. L. Mahadevan and colleagues from SEAS, Finland and France have provided the first experimental evidence of the theory of differential growth and demonstrated that physical forces — not just biochemical processes alone — play a critical role...


Origami describes rules for creating folded structures from patterns on a flat sheet, but does not prescribe how patterns can be designed to fit target shapes. In an article in Nature Materials, Prof. L. Mahadevan and colleagues describe...


In the fall of 2015, twenty-one students representing a diverse cross-section of Harvard community participated in the Harvard Section of the "How to Make (Almost) Anything" class. This course was taught by MIT professor Neil Gershenfeld and integrates a wide range of fabrication modalities. The Harvard section was led by Rob Hart and members of the Instructional Physics Labs...
