Tsevi Beatus and Itai Cohen measure 5 millisecond reflex in fruit flies

Fruit fly roll and correction

Postdoctoral fellow Tsevi Beatus, working with Itai Cohen, associate professor of physics, and John Guckenheimer, professor of mathematics, have discovered that flies stabilize themselves during fl

Cohen Group Demonstrates Microscopic Origami Switch

Photographs of a square twist

Itai Cohen's group has found that the square twist origami fold produces a distinct snapping between folded and unfolded states, like a light switch.

Veit Elser's algorithm used to image mimivirus

3D Mimivirus from Elser algorithm

Viet Elser’s technique for reconstructing structure from single-molecule diffraction has been successfully used to image a virus.

Alex Alemi and Matt Bierbaum model the best places to hide in a Zombie Outbreak

When a Zombie outbreak occurs don't call Brad Pitt, Woody Harrelson or Simon Pegg. You'll want to call PhD candidates Alex Alemi and Matt Bierbaum along with Professors Jim Sethna and Chris Myers.

Kyle Shen group can dial in control of strontium iridate

By Brendan Faeth - An artist’s rendering of strontium iridate

Shen's group offers insight on how different “knobs” can change material properties in ways that were previously unexplored or misunderstood.

Davis group finds magnetic disorder in topological insulators

Scanning tunnelling microscope image of a 47-nanometer square area of the surface of a topological insulator showing variations in the Dirac-mass gap

To better understand topological insulators (TIs) and why they weren't living up to their potential Seamus Davis's group at Cornell and Brookhaven National Lab studied them with their scanning tunn

Eun-Ah Kim and Seamus Davis groups find 'fingerprint' for high-temperature superconductor

Quasiparticle Interference (QPI) imaging technique reveals that electron-boson interaction in LiFeAs superconductivity has momentum-space anisotropic self-energy 'fingerprint' of antiferromagnetic spin fluctuations

Eun-Ah Kim along with Seamus Davis have isolated a "fingerprint" that identifies specific fluctuations in electrons that force them into pairs, causing their host material, in this case, a high-tem

John Heron, Dan Ralph, and Darrell Schlom make a breakthrough in instant-on computing
