The College of Science advances mathematics, physical sciences and life sciences and mobilizes curiosity-driven faculty and students who seek to enhance life on the planet through groundbreaking research.
A team of physicists at the Clemson Nanomaterials Institute have developed a device, called a U-TENG, that is designed to take mechanical motion – like the waves in the ocean, the tap of a foot or the clap of a hand – and transform it into electricity. Once generated, the electricity can power lights or electronic devices, such as calculators.
South Carolina’s position as a national leader in advanced materials just got a giant boost. A team of researchers from 10 universities across the state has received a $20 million, five-year grant from the National Science Foundation’s Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) to establish a new initiative: Materials Assembly and Design Excellence in South Carolina, or MADE in SC.
In a collaboration with the Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL), Clemson University professor Stephen Creager is pursuing basic research that could aid in the disposal or repurposing of radioactive hydrogen isotopes.
When Mate Adamkovics’ astronomy and physics students go on to brilliant careers, they can attribute at least part of their professional knowledge to a beautiful workhorse of a 20th Century spaceship called Cassini. After a 20-year mission spent studying Saturn and its moons, Cassini’s mission ended at 7:55 a.m. Friday.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – In August, a study conducted by physics and astronomy professors Chad Sosolik and Joan Marler was highlighted in the American Institute of Physics’ publication, titled “Scilight.” Featuring the most exciting research in physical science from associated AIP Publishing Journals, Scilight is published on a weekly basis for a far-reaching scientific audience.

About two miles from the Clemson University campus, where 50,000 people gathered to gaze skyward during the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse, bee researcher Jennifer Tsuruda kept her eyes focused earthward to see how honey bees behaved when nighttime darkness momentarily interrupted afternoon sun.
Clemson University has taken another significant step in its growth as a leading national research university by creating the Office of Research Development in the Division of Research. The goals of the new office are to increase the number of large, multi-department, multi-institutional grants valued at $2 million and more and to help faculty attain select research development activities, such as federal CAREER awards.
The College of Science would like to invite those of you who viewed the eclipse on the grounds of Clemson University to participate in our “Eclipse Over Clemson” photo contest.
The “Great American Eclipse” set the stage for a number of experiments on Aug. 21, one being the release of two high-altitude balloons from the campus of Clemson University.
In the middle of his workday, Clemson University entomologist Peter Adler stepped outside his office to take in the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse. Adler’s intention was to see whether creatures of the night – such as katydids, cicadas and moths – would make an appearance during the 2 minutes and 37 seconds of totality.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – Campus is bustling with the return of students for the 2017-18 academic year – 16 of whom are new graduate students in the department of chemistry. The students came from universities across the country, and will explore the vast amount of research emphases in the department before choosing their focuses in […]
While tens of thousands were experiencing the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse on the expansive grounds of Clemson University, professor Sean Brittain and several students from the department of physics and astronomy were collecting scientific data on the roof of the Watt Family Innovation Center.
The public had lots to say after experiencing 2 minutes and 37 seconds of totality during the Aug. 21 eclipse.
Fifty-thousand people on the Clemson University campus craned their necks skyward at 2:37 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, to gaze at a natural phenomenon that hasn’t happened in the United States for 100 years: a coast-to-coast total solar eclipse.
While most people's jobs require that they look down or forward, this Tiger looks up. In fact, she's been looking up for the past two years to study this week's total solar eclipse, which grabbed the attention of a nation - and the world.
