Electrons race along the surface of certain unusual crystalline materials, except that sometimes they don’t.
Princeton researchers led by Alejandro Rodriguez (PCCM's Seed 7) have uncovered new rules governing how objects absorb and emit light, fine-tuning scientists’ control over light and boosting research into next-generation solar and optical devices.
Leslie Schoop, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, and Robert Cava, the Russell Wellman Moore Professor of Chemistry, have each been awarded 5-year grants by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation in the amount of $1.7M.
PCCM's IRG-1 senior investigators B. Andrei Bernevig (PI) and F. Duncan Haldane (along with other Princeton quantum theorists, Ravindra Bhatt, David Huse, and Shivaji Sondhi) were awarded an EPiQS Theory Center by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation in July 2019.
Each summer since 2002, PCCM brings high school students from underrepresented backgrounds to Princeton to attend the Princeton University Materials Academy (PUMA), a three-week program held from July 8-25, 2019. This year, 15 students...
Princeton researchers led by Andrew Houck, IRG-3 co-leader, and lead author Alicia Kollár, PCCM postdoctoral fellow, built an electronic array on a microchip. Their research results appeared in Nature (July 2019).
The US Department of Energy has named Jeff Thompson (senior investigator with PCCM's IRG-3) the recipient of a 2019 Early Career Award, with five years of significant funding from the department's Office of Science.
PCCM IRG-1 investigators, Ali Yazdani and B. Andrei Bernevig, report strong electron interactions play a key role in the superconductivity that has been discovered in twisted graphene. Nature (Aug. 2019)
