University College Cork—National University of Ireland, Cork (UCC) named Patrick O’Shea, Affiliate Professor and VP for Research, as its 15th President.
Congratulations to the Spring 2016 semester Dean's List awardees from the University of Maryland College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences.
A Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics was announced in May in recognition of the detection of gravitational waves by LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory. Professors Alessandra Buonanno and Peter Shawhan of UMD Physics, as well as researchers Yi Pan and Philip Graff and graduate students Min-A Cho and Cregg Yancey, were contributors to the discovery.
Two recent publications involving neutron scattering experiments performed at the NIST Center for Neutron Research have been highlighted in the 2015 NCNR Annual Report. The studies, involving a multi-disciplinary collaboration between CNAM members J. Paglione (physics), E.E. Rodriguez (chemistry) and NIST Fellow J.W. Lynn, are focused on superconductivity and magnetism in iron-based materials and the half-Heusler ternary system.
