Results of a new study will help physicists establish a cutting-edge neutrino research facility to study some of the most abundant yet least understood particles in the universe.
Congratulations to Prof. Vijay Balasubramanian, who has been elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society, in the Division of Particles and Fields.
His citation reads: "For fundamental contributions clarifying the black hole information puzzle and black hole thermodynamics through work on the duality of quantum gravity and quantum field theory, and on black hole microscopics in theories of quantum gravity."

Penn astronomers are part of an international collaboration to construct the Simons Observatory, a new telescope that will search the skies in a quest to learn more about the formation of the universe.
Former Physics faculty member, John Schrieffer, passed away on July 27th at the age of 88. Prof.
Congratulations to Prof. Liang Wu, who has been chosen as the recipient of the 2019 William McMillan Award, for outstanding contributions in condensed matter physics
This award (which Prof. Wu will share with Prof. Barry Bradlyn of the University of Illinois) is presented annually to a condensed matter physicist for distinguished research performed within five years of receiving a PhD.
In Prof. Wu’s case, the award is given “for novel terahertz and optical spectroscopy experiments on topological insulators and semimetals.”
