Medical Beam Laboratories LLC, a company recently formed by researchers from Clemson University’s Medical Physics lab, has been awarded the InnoVision Award for Technology Development for its work in advanced robotic radiosurgery.
CLEMSON – The College of Science, having just recently surpassed its inaugural year, has appointed three faculty members to Associate Dean positions in the Dean’s Office. They will begin their roles starting in January 2018. Apparao M. Rao, an R.A. Bowen Professor in the department of physics and astronomy and the director of the Clemson […]
“Eclipse Over Clemson: The day Tigertown will never forget,” a commemorative book about the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse, debuted Monday, just in time for the holidays.
CLEMSON – Twenty years ago, Terry Tritt taught his first class as a Clemson faculty member. It was a general physics course, packed with hundreds of undergraduate science and engineering students – and when Tritt cracked a joke, his audience wasn’t moved. “Everybody was looking at me real seriously. Nobody was smiling. And I thought: […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina – The 5th Annual Cell Biology of Eukaryotic Pathogens (CBEP) meeting was held on Oct. 19-20 at the Clemson Outdoor Lab, bringing together some of the best parasitic and fungal disease researchers in North America for coffee and collaboration. Hosted by Clemson University’s Eukaryotic Pathogens Innovation Center (EPIC), the meeting is held […]
While cell phones, laptops and cars become more energy efficient, the development of one important ingredient common in all these devices, and many more, has lagged: the batteries used to power them. A Clemson team is working to make more efficient and cheaper batteries by replacing lithium with more plentiful aluminum.
CLEMSON – The College of Science’s upcoming “Eclipse Over Clemson: The day Tigertown will never forget” commemorative book about the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse is now available for pre-order at www.clemson.edu/eclipse. The hard-cover book will also be available via Amazon and other online book-selling venues and will be ready for shipping on or before […]
Four days before the great American eclipse of 2017, a Clemson University scientist learned a secret that he had to hold until now. Albert Einstein predicted it. Now, astronomers say it is true. They confirmed the direct detection of gravitational waves or ripples in space time, in addition to light from the collision of two neutron stars.
Art Voter, a laboratory fellow at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, will be the featured speaker at the 2017 Sobczyk Public Lecture. Voter will speak on accelerated molecular dynamics – a computer simulation approach that unveils the behavior of materials at the atomic level – at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 1 in the Bellsouth Auditorium at the Madren Conference Center.
Physics and astronomy colleagues Terry Tritt and Jian He have surveyed the field of thermoelectric energy in an invited review for the journal Science.
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, 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.
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.
