Mak, McEuen & McGill test out new semiconductor

Atoms of molybdenum (gray) and sulfur (yellow) are shown in a two-dimensional crystal formation

Kin Fai Mak, Paul McEuen, Jiwoong Park (chemistry and chemical biology) and Kathryn McGill have tested out molybdenum disulfide as a seminconductor with the potential to create smaller, more effici

Matthew Paszek links sugar coating of cancer cells to their enhanced survival

cancer cells

Matthew Paszek, now assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at Cornell, recently published work from his days as a postdoctoral fellow in LASSP, studying cancer cells.

Matthew Reichl and Erich Mueller describe new way for lasers to generate flow in atomic clouds

atoms conduct along boundary of topological insulator system

Recent theoretical work by Reichl and Mueller (to be published in Physical Review A) describes how to engineer and probe an exotic state of matter called a "topological insulator" in a gas

Lawler, Kim & Davis reveal mysteries of the pseudogap


Michael Lawler, Eun-Ah Kim and Seamus Davis close in on the secret recipe for high-temperature superconductors.

Michelle Wang's group pioneers new method for studing multiple molecules at once

nSWAT by Robert Forties

Michelle Wang and her lab have developed a new optical trap that allows them to study multiple molecules at once. Previous studies had used such traps to look at single molecules, such as DNA.

Kyle Shen discovers atomic-scale switch in metal oxides

anthanum nickelate

Kyle Shen and a team from Cornell and Brookhaven National Lab have discovered a new property of metal oxides that can act like a switch.

David Mermin says QBism puts the scientist back into science

David Mermin

A new understanding of quantum mechanics restores the balance between scientists and the objects they study, says David Mermin, the Horace White professor of physics emeritus, in this
