New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) has received a $1 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation for a three-year project titled “Engineering New Materials Based on Topological Phonon Edge Modes.” This project, a partnership with Yeshiva University, will seek to elucidate the fundamental dynamics of cell division and other functions of living cells, as well as lay the groundwork for the fabrication of a new class of metamaterials with novel physical properties and functionalities. >>
For scientists studying the impacts of space weather, one of the central mysteries of solar flares – the colossal release of magnetic energy in the Sun's atmosphere that erupts with the force of millions of hydrogen bombs – is the means by which these explosions produce radiation and accelerate particles to nearly the speed of light within seconds. >>
Louis Lanzerotti, distinguished research professor in the Department of Physics, took part in the October 29 panel discussion “Space Weather: Understanding Potential Impacts and Building Resilience” convened in Washington, D.C. under the auspices of the Executive Office of the President of the United States. >>
NJIT Distinguished Professor Haimin Wang, Ph.D., a leading authority on fluctuations of the Sun's magnetic field that give rise to solar flares and space weather, will receive the eighth annual Board of Overseers Excellence in Research Prize and Medal on Oct. 1, 2015.   >>
Two hundred employers will attend the 2015 Fall Career Fair—the largest technologically-based fair in the metro region. More than 2,500 job seekers will attend the fair – the most ever at NJIT. >>
