Physics professor Itai Cohen is among four Cornell faculty members who received the 2022 Kappa Delta Ann Doner Vaughn Award for their collaborative research on the mechanics and composition of articular cartilage and its relevance to disease.
Cornell students, including some from Arts and Sciences, have begun building the final version of Alpha CubeSat – a small satellite that will carry a first-of-its-kind light sail, hologram-embossed solar panels and several other new techniques for deep-space travel.
A constellation of scientists, technologists and businesses will offer a glimpse into how space will be explored in the years to come during the inaugural Space Tech Industry Day, a virtual symposium hosted by Cornell on April 23.
Cornell researchers, including Dan Ralph, the F.R. Newman Professor of Physics in the College of Arts & Sciences, have demonstrated a technique for writing, erasing and rewriting microscopic magnetic patterns onto a material – a concept tested by writing and erasing “Cornell” eight times onto the sample. This achievement will aid in the research of magnetism for ultrafast computer memory and other applications.
Cornell researchers have become the first to control atomically thin magnets with an electric field, a breakthrough that provides a blueprint for producing exceptionally powerful and efficient data storage in computer chips, among other applications.
