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.
Physics and astronomy colleagues Terry Tritt and Jian He have surveyed the field of thermoelectric energy in an invited review for the journal Science.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – Joseph Kolis and R. Kenneth Marcus, two faculty members in the department of chemistry, have been awarded titled professorships. Kolis, a professor of inorganic chemistry, is now an endowed professor – the Tobey-Beaudrot Professor of Chemistry. This professorship was made possible by a gift from Paul L. Tobey (class of ’35) […]
The annual Habitat for Humanity homecoming build on Bowman is about more than building a house, it's about building a home!
A team of Clemson University astrophysicists has visually confirmed that a small rock found in Melanie Casselman’s yard is a meteorite from outer space.
Clemson University marine scientists and students are leading efforts to solicit help for the hurricane-impacted Florida Keys and Caribbean.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – “Follow your dream. Know what you want to do, and pursue it” were the simple words of advice from dentist Ronnie D. Lee for Clemson students at the third annual “Tigers on Call” event on Sept. 22. A Clemson alumnus of 1976, Lee has been practicing dentistry in Aiken, South Carolina, […]
Geneticist making strides in understanding a complex disorder affecting canines and humans.
U.S. Amateur champion Doc Redman, a sophomore in the College of Science, shoots low on the golf course but aims high as a student of mathematics.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – The familiar signs of a research symposium were on view on Sept. 22 when students from the College of Science gathered in the Hendrix Student Center to present the latest results of their independent research. Easels, posters and sharply dressed undergraduate students from the departments of biological sciences, genetics and biochemistry, […]
In a new catalog, a team of Clemson physicists has documented exactly where the most extreme, violent sources of energy exist in the universe.
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.
