Cargo vesicles (stained with green fluorescent dye) travelling along microtubules (stained red) in a living cell as studied in Professor Phil Nelson's group.
MicroRNA and Nanopores
Dr. Meni Wanunu, Prof. Marija Drndic and others at Penn have used solid state nanopores to study microRNA. Target microRNA strands (blue) from living tissue are hybridized with a probe RNA sequence (red). These RNA duplexes are then collected by magnetic beads (orange) that are coated with a p19 protein (green). The RNA duplexes are then removed from the proteins and delivered to the nanopore.
Supernovae from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
Part of the images of all the supernovae from the 2005-2007 observing campaigns of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.
Science Verification Images from DES
High resolution color image of area SPT-CL J2332-5358 from the Dark Energy Survey Science Verification stage of testing of the telescope and DECam.
A synthetic peptide candidate that can be used for single molecule electronic measurements. Single molecules can act as a functioning part of a field effect transistor device as studied in Professor Charlie Johnson's lab.
Jay Kikkawa has been elected to Fellowship in the American Physical Society. The criterion for election is "exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise". Being named an APS Fellow is a distinct honor signifying recognition by peers in the profession.
