A collaborative study reveals insights into the properties of a recently discovered family of superconductors, with implications for future applications in quantum computing and other technologies.
Congratulations to Prof. Evelyn Thomson on her election as a 2022 Fellow of the American Physical Society!
"For initiating and leading original searches at the Large Hadron Collider for the simplest extension of the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model that has spontaneous violation of the R-parity symmetry."
Gwen Gardner and Lauren Osojnak, Ph.D. candidates in physics, describe their work as part of the Penn ATLAS team at the Large Hadron Collider.
By combining optical measurements with ultrasound, researchers were able to study oxygen levels in the placenta, paving the way for a better understanding of this complex, crucial organ.
Professor Andreas Albrecht (University of California, Davis): In 1982, while a grad student at Penn, my advisor and I wrote a paper that has since become very famous. We helped to invent a new theory describing the very beginning of the Universe. The resulting “Cosmic Inflation theory” has become the dominant tool cosmologists use to understand the very beginning, and to interpret the vast (and ever growing) quantities of data depicting the state of the cosmos.
The technology, developed by Arnold Mathijssen of the School of Arts & Sciences and colleagues, could one day clear blockages in blood vessels or precisely target chemotherapy drugs to a tumor.
Penn physicist Elliot Lipeles reflects on the past, present, and future of physics, from the discovery of the Higgs boson to theories about new subatomic particles.
