Robert Naeye February 11, LIGO scientists have announced the direct detection of gravitational waves, a discovery that won't just open a new window on the cosmos — it'll smash the door wide open. Two black holes coalesce in a still from a numerical simulation. Such predictions, based on Einstein's theory of general relativity match exactly what LIGO scientists discovered on September 14, Two massive accelerating objects — in this case, a pair of stellar-mass black holes in a death-spiral — passed through spacetime like paddles sweeping through water, creating vibrations that could barely be felt on Earth.
And hats off to faculty advisors Alyson Brooks and Matt Buckley. These findings could open the door to novel graphene-based electronic building blocks. Their article is published in Nature Nanotechnology advanced online publication. The study is published in the Physical Review Letters at https: Read more in Rutgers Today at http: Schommer Astronomical Observatory in Piscataway.
The eclipse viewing event was from The transit of the Moon blocking out the Sun began around 1: The award is intended to recognize DPF members who have had an exceptional impact as mentors of particle physics scientists and students. His leadership by example, in studying new ideas, accepting all questions, and creating an inclusive environment where young scientists could bond with and learn from senior scientists and from each other has shaped the careers of many current leaders in experimental particle physics.
Along with the earlier announcements about Saurabh Jha, JP Chou and Sevil Salur, we are a remarkable 9 for 9 on faculty promotions this year. Jesse's account of the day was posted by the American Astronomical Society: Jennifer has accepted the latter of the three as she heads to Harvard to conduct her graduate studies in Physics.
Jennifer was featured in a Rutgers Today article on May 1, The award is in recognition of outstanding scholarly accomplishments as documented in his evaluation for promotion. JP received the award at a ceremony on May 4, We're pleased to announce the following recent awards: Congratulations to all three of you for receiving this recognition, and thank you for personifying the departments commitment to excellence in education.
Congratulations JP and Sevil on your well-deserved promotions. Viktor has been doing research with Girsh Blumberg. For more information please visit: Angela Ludvigsen is a first-year graduate student who is working with Eva Andrei. Congratulations on receiving this well-earned distinction.
Clustering Analysis of Partial Galaxies. Aniket has worked with Emil Yuzbashyan on topics including the multistate Landau-Zener problem and the driven-dissipative dynamics of quantum condensates.
Jasen also works with Emil Yuzbashyan to develop the theory of quantum regularity - the opposite of quantum chaos. One of only 13 awardees, this highly competitive fellowship will allow Gabi up to a semester long research leave with the objective to increase creativity and provide intellectual stimulation.

This appointment, anticipated to last three to five years, will be held jointly with her appointment as Distinguished Professor at Rutgers. Read more about the Simons CCA. The Prize is given "recognizing outstanding research in theoretical statistical physics, including quantum fluids.
Saurabh received the same distinction inand Sang in In recognition of 50 years of excellence in nuclear physics graduate education at Rutgers, we will be hosting a commemorative event on October 1.
This event will present an opportunity for former and current students, postdocs and faculty to recognize the accomplishments of the alumni in nuclear physics. We will unveil a plaque recognizing the historical significance of the Rutgers-Bell Tandem Nuclear Physics Laboratory. The organization, was established in by a group of New York City theater critics, editors, reporters, and publishers.
This award is the University's highest honor for distinguished research contributions. Scott will receive the award at a ceremony on May 5, This year she is the only winner from Rutgers.
In addition to being our 7th winner in a row, Jennifer is also our 9th winner since Astronomy - The techniques of astronomy: Astronomical observations involve a sequence of stages, each of which may impose constraints on the type of information attainable.
Radiant energy is collected with telescopes and brought to a focus on a detector, which is calibrated so that its sensitivity and spectral response are known.
Accurate pointing and timing are required to permit the. By pushing the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope to its limits, astronomers have shattered the cosmic distance record by measuring the distance to the most remote galaxy ever seen in the universe. Green Bank Observatory Single Dish Training School May , The Green Bank Telescope (GBT) Single Dish Training School will provide students, post-docs, and experts in other fields of astronomy with both knowledge and practical experience of the techniques and applications of single-dish radio astronomy using the GBT as the primary example.
This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image showcases the galaxy NGC , a lenticular galaxy some 70 million light-years away in the constellation of Ursa Major (the Great Bear).
The pair of galaxies were found lensed by galaxy cluster CL+62 (z = ). This was the first time since that something other than a quasar held the record for being the most distant object in . Jan 12, · NASA images the most distant galaxy ever resolved The Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes combined forces to photograph a small, distant galaxy amplified by gravitational lensing.
