  • Professor Natalie Stingelin Elected a Materials Research Society Fellow

    COPE and GTPN member Natalie Stingelin has been elected a Materials Research Society Fellow for pivotal contributions to the application of classical polymer science tools for the efficient design and processing of organic electronic and photonic materials and devices. Congratulations Natalie!

  • When Sand-Slithering Snakes Behave Like Light Waves

    Desert snakes slithering across the sand at night can encounter obstacles such as plants or twigs that alter the direction of their travel -- and cause them to mimic aspects of light or subatomic particles when they encounter a diffraction grating. The study was coauthored by SMI Professors Dan Goldman and Zeb Rocklin: Perrin E. Schiebel, Jennifer M. Rieser, Alex M. Hubbard, Lillian Chen, D. Zeb Rocklin, and Daniel I. Goldman. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci., USA, February 25th, 2019.

  • SMI Researcher Bhamla to study One of the World’s Fastest Creatures

    Soft Matter Incubator (SMI) member Saad Bhamla (School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering) has received a four-year National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to study Spirostomum ambiguum, a tiny single-celled protozoan that achieves blazing-fast acceleration while contracting its worm-like body. The physics and mathematics of the movement could help advance nanotechnology and accelerate a new generation of robots barely large enough to see with the naked eye.
