By juxtaposing contrasting properties of two different nanomaterials, a team of Clemson University physicists has developed an optical diode that enables light to move in one direction. The development overcomes an obstacle in the quest for better optical isolators for high-energy lasers and optical computers capable of processing data at the speed of light.
New treatments for potentially fatal heart conditions could be ready for patients more quickly and less expensively with the help of a new research project led by Ethan Kung, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Clemson University.
Clemson’s parks, recreation and tourism management department has appointed Lori Dickes as its associate chair.

Dickes will […]
New research exploring media coverage of a Russian doping scandal reveals how extensive reporting might have motivated cyberattacks aimed at affecting the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The research, published in Communication and Sport, examines journalistic and political fallout resulting from coverage of a scandal that tarnished Russia’s reputation in international sport.
Four Clemson entities have joined together to create a video emphasizing the importance of outdoor play. The College of Education and College of Behavioral, Social, and Health Sciences, along with the U.S. Play Coalition and South Carolina Botanical Garden, both housed at Clemson, produced “Come Outdoors with Us,” which explores the extraordinary benefits of nature on all […]
MHI Vestas recently was awarded the Silver Medal in the category of renewable energy at the prestigious Edison Awards for its 9.5 megawatt offshore wind turbine, which it will test at Clemson University’s wind turbine-testing facility at the SCE&G Energy Innovation Center in the former naval shipyard.

This award is given to a faculty member in recognition of their outstanding work with undergraduate […]
When Chris Paredis was a 9-year-old playing with Legos in his bedroom in Belgium he wasn’t thinking about becoming an engineer. “I just loved building things,” he said. Legos led to bikes and then cars and, as he explained, “literally anything with moving parts." Today, that fascination with making things work has led to the position he finds himself in today as the new BMW Endowed Chair in Systems Integration for Clemson University’s International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR).
Benjamin White, an associate professor of religious studies in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Clemson University, has been awarded a Summer Stipend from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). White received the $6,000 research grant to support his project “The Authorship of the Pauline Epistles: The Promise and Limitations of Computational Methods.” […]
Born and raised in Norway, this Tiger taught at the University of Bergen and the IT University of Copenhagen before he moved to America. Today, he is not only a respected member of Clemson’s faculty — he represents them as the newly inducted president of the Faculty Senate. Meet Jan Holmevik. Title: Associate professor, English […]
A team of Clemson researchers is using a $398,263 award from the National Science Foundation’s Broadening Participation in Engineering program to examine factors that both encourage and discourage Black students from pursuing education in engineering fields. Researchers will also examine how different academic pathways in engineering vary by gender and institution type for Black students.
Six Clemson students traveled to Boston College last week to participate in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Meeting of the Minds. The conference is held annually every spring to celebrate undergraduate research and provides an opportunity for sharing of ideas and collaboration.
