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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Here's what you need to know to see the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse at Clemson University's “Eclipse Over Clemson” viewing party.
Organizers of Monday's “Eclipse Over Clemson” viewing event have planned a variety of family-friendly and educational activities.
Researchers will be at Clemson University Monday to find out how the solar eclipse might interfere with GPS capabilities.
Clemson-educated astrophysicist William “Tom” Bridgman will give a public lecture titled “The Cosmos in Your Pocket” at 7 p.m. Sunday in Brackett Hall 100 on the campus of Clemson University.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – The stepping stones of scientific advancement rely on the identification of genes involved in cytokinesis, the processivity of dynein motor proteins, the construction of neural circuits – or some other equally-obscure-sounding research – because these are the studies that lay the groundwork for the development of cures or novel disease treatments […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina – Clemson University scientist Donald Liebenberg has personally witnessed and researched 26 total solar eclipses over the past 60-plus years. Liebenberg, who has been an adjunct professor in the College of Science’s department of physics and astronomy since 1996, has travelled literally all over the world to enter the path of totality […]
