Clemson researchers collaborate with an international team of scientists to examine a highly efficient thermoelectric material in a new way – by using light.
Two years after agreeing to launch an accelerated dual-degree program in physics, Clemson University and South Carolina State University signed an agreement Monday to begin a similar Mathematical & Statistical Sciences Accelerated Collaborative Degree Program. The new program allows math students at SC State to earn their bachelor’s combined with their master’s degrees in just […]
CLEMSON – Astrophysicist Lea Marcotulli, whose research extends to the farthest reaches of the universe, will tell others about her discoveries when her previously recorded speech airs on the virtual TEDxGreenville 2020 conference on November 6. The TEDx Talk was originally scheduled to be given in-person on March 28, but the event was postponed because […]
An international collaboration, a bit of serendipity and a lot of hard work over the past three years has led to a discovery that is set to literally reshape the world of inorganic semiconductor materials.
The University’s transition to in-person teaching this past Monday went well even with the predictable hiccups. Although some instructors have been using on-campus classrooms since the first day of classes in August, Monday marked the day a total of 186 instructors provided face-to-face and online teaching from 137 of the more than 400 retrofitted classrooms. […]
Trina Pham is a first-generation college student living on the rural outskirts of Mauldin, South Carolina, where she dreams of becoming the U.S. president’s chief advisor on science and technology. By the time she walks into the Oval Office, the big issues for Pham could include intelligent machines, humankind’s outpost on Mars and the discovery […]
Amy Pope faces a challenge at the start of the semester: introducing physics – algebra-based physics, of all things – to more than 600 Gen Ed students and making sure they feel good about the semester ahead. It’s a teaching challenge Pope loves and has become successful at facing. So successful, in fact, that she […]
Electrifying research by Clemson University scientists could lead to the creation of lighter, faster-charging batteries suitable for powering a spacesuit, or even a Mars rover.
Clemson University researcher Rafael Mesquita and a multi-institutional research team documented “surfer waves” in the upper atmosphere that create a pipeline of energy between layers in space.
Three teams of researchers at Clemson University have joined forces to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding perovskite nanocrystals, which are semiconductors with numerous applications, including LEDs, lasers, solar cells and photodetectors.
Rob Sheffield, a physics teacher at Laurens District 55 High School, has gained hands-on physics research experience at Clemson University which he shared in a virtual workshop hosted by Harvard.
Clemson scientist Feng Ding is working to develop a quick detection test for COVID-19 with funding from a one-year National Science Foundation RAPID grant.
A pair of Clemson University scientists are among the co-authors of a paper on research into using quantum dots to usher in the next generation of safer, highly efficient solar cells.
Scientists from the Clemson Nanomaterials Institute have unveiled research that could have a profound impact on the future treatment of conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, Type 2 diabetes and abdominal aortic aneurysms.
Terry M. Tritt, who retired from Clemson in 2018, was recently honored as a recipient of the International Thermoelectric Society’s 2020 Outstanding Achievement Award.
