Grad student Debanjan Chowdhury and Prof. Subir Sachdev analyze a candidate theory for the strange metal near optimal hole-doping in the cuprate superconductors...


PSI Presentations
How do you build a short pulse laser only from materials available 100 years ago? How do you make color holograms, explore how a violin works, measure the "Ether wind"? How can you trap particles with light or build a flute?...


Colloidal glasses, bird feathers, and beetle scales can all show structural colors arising from short-ranged spatial correlations between scattering centers. Unlike the structural colors arising from Bragg diffraction in ordered materials like opals...


termite mound
Many species of fungus-harvesting termites build largely empty, massive mound structures which protrude from the ground above their subterranean nests. It has been long proposed that the function of these mounds is to facilitate exchange of heat, humidity, and respiratory gases...


Graduate students Dennis Huang, Siyuan Sun, Bo Liu, and Shu-Heng Shao are the winners of the 2015 Maurice and Gertrude Goldhaber Prize. The prize is awarded annually by the department to its most outstanding current PhD students...


The ATLAS Collaboration has observed a new excited state of the Bc± meson at 6842 MeV by reconstructing its decay. The mass and decay are consistent with QCD predictions for this excited state.


Jefferson Lab in Autumn
Congratulations to our November PhD graduates David Benjamin, Willy Chang, Max Lavrentovich, James McIver, Julia Piskorski, Aqil Sajjad, William Spearman, Jeffrey Thompson, and Chin Lin Wong!


On November 14, 2014, experts from fields as far-ranging as human cognitive neuroscience and neural computation, animal life science, anthropology and culture, space science, current and future technology, and emergency management converged on Radcliffe’s annual Science Symposium...


If physicists want to find their long-sought "theory of everything," they have to get small. And Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist Steven Weinberg (U Texas, Austin) thinks he knows roughly how small...


Semarkona meteorite

Magnetic fields are proposed to have played a critical role in some of the most enigmatic processes of planetary formation by mediating the rapid accretion of disk material...
