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.
A Clemson University scientist has joined forces with an international team of astronomers to identify periodic gamma-ray emissions from 11 active galaxies, paving the way for future studies of unconventional galaxies that might harbor two supermassive black holes at their centers.
As you look back over your time as a student at Clemson, I hope there are many great moments engraved in your memories. I encourage each of you to stay connected and engaged with each other, your department, your friends, your faculty, our college and our university.
Physics and Astronomy postdoctoral fellow Núria Torres-Albà recently published a News and Views article in the journal Nature Astronomy. The article focused on how relativistic jets released by supermassive black holes can be decelerated by stars from the host galaxy. Read the article titled “Stars take down relativistic jets.”
A team of College of Science researchers, in collaboration with international colleagues, has reported the first definitive detection of a relativistic jet emerging from two colliding galaxies — in essence, the first photographic proof that merging galaxies can produce jets of charged particles that travel at nearly the speed of light.
To the Clemson Community: These are challenging times unlike anything I have seen in more than 30 years of working in higher education. I know many of you are concerned about your health, and the health of your loved ones – we are, too. In fact, every decision we have made over the past few […]
