Physicists Take First Step Toward Cell-Sized Robots

An electricity-conducting, environment-sensing, shape-changing machine the size of a human cell? Is that even possible? Cornell physicists Paul McEuen and Itai Cohen not only say...

Physicists Use Numerical ‘Tweezers’ to Study Nuclear Interactions

Researchers from North Carolina State University and the Ruhr-Universität Bochum have developed numerical “tweezers” that can pin a nucleus in place, enabling them to...

A Miniaturized Sensor That Can Measure Chemistry on a Chip

By combining expertise in photonics - manipulating light beams in nanoscale waveguides on a chip – and materials science, Cornell researchers have laid the...

Graphene Used as a Frequency Mixer in Cornell-led Research

A professor, a postdoctoral researcher and a graduate student hop onto a trampoline. No, it’s not the opening line of a joke. It’s a setup...
Sticky waves

‘Sticky waves’: Molecular interactions at the nanoscale

Like the gravitational forces that are responsible for the attraction between the Earth and the moon, as well as the dynamics of the entire...
Down syndrome

Genomic analysis pinpoints a potential target for treatment of Down syndrome

A study of changes in the patterns of gene activity in the brains of people with Down syndrome reveals that the formation of the...
