For the first time, physicists have developed a technique that can peer deep beneath the surface of a material to identify the energies and momenta of electrons there. The energy and momentum of these electrons, known as a material’s “band structure,” are key properties that describe how electrons move through a material. Ultimately, the band

Researchers have had their suspicions as to the cause, and

“Teach. Travel. Inspire.” It was the fall of 2006 when first-year electrical engineering and computer science graduate student Ted Golfinopoulos read those words on a poster in the Infinite Corridor, inviting him to learn more about Middle East Education through Technology (MEET). The program, since renamed Middle East Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow, seeks to educate and empower promising Palestinian

It’s not just your imagination: life in America really has become more unpleasant this year. According to a new Gallup report, American wellbeing fell by a “statistically significant and meaningfully large” amount from 2016 to 2017. The drops were largest among women, minorities, Democrats and low-income Americans.   “Wellbeing” in this case is based on
