"For pioneering a new generation of electron detectors and phase-sensitive reconstruction algorithms leading to significant advances in the resolution and capabilities of electron microscopes."
Applications for the Kavli 2023 Theory Postdoctoral Fellowships are now open! The deadline is September 29th, 2023.
Applications for the Kavli 2023 Experimental Postdoctoral Fellowships are now open! The deadline is October 14th, 2023.
Debanjan Chowdhury (KIC Exec Committee member and assistant professor, Physics and LASSP) find that "even a tiny amount of imperfection, inherent in any real-life material, plays a key role" to understanding the switch between a metal and an insulator within a single material.
A $2.5 million grant will fund 13 research projects across the sciences, social sciences and humanities for novel investigations ranging from quantum computing to foreign policy development and from heritage forensics to effects of climate change.
A Cornell-led collaboration led by Nicholas Abbott, Itai Cohen, Paul McEuen, and David Muller, harnessed chemical reactions to make microscale origami machines self-fold – freeing them from the liquids in which they usually function, so they can operate in dry environments and at room temperature.
Five faculty from the College of Arts and Sciences will be featured on a “Cornell week” on The Academic Minute radio program from May 1-5.
to be workable in the future, will need error correction mechanisms, too, based on the vastly more sensitive qubits. Cornell Professor Eun-Ah Kim and former Bethe/KIC/Wikins postdoctoral fellow Yuri Lensky (now at Google) have recently taken a step toward fault-tolerant quantum computing: they constructed a simple model containing exotic particles called non-Abelian anyons, compact and practical enough to run on modern quantum hardware. Realizing these particles, which can only exist in two dimensions, is a move towards implementing it in the real world.
Chemist Alexa Easley has been honored for outstanding polymer research while working with faculty host Brett Fors, professor of chemistry and chemical biology.
As a freshman, Dan Ralph was inspired by an engaging physics teacher who Ralph considered a Yoda-like character who was very good at posing problems that helped them understand what they were learning. Dan Ralph as co-director of Kavli Institute at Cornell (KIC) states "We're constantly looking for new puzzles, new problems, and new areas of research that people haven't considered before. Some involve fundamental science questions while others are more about engineering, but they are all areas where research can make a difference."
