The work of Daniel Agterberg and others could lead to improvements in the electrical grid and produce next-generation computers that can store far more information.
The new method, which captures action over just a few quadrillionths of a second, sheds light on how proteins work. The study was published in the journal Nature.
On this episode of Curious Campus, UWM’s new podcast about science, discovery and culture, we talk about gravitational waves with Sarah Vigeland, an assistant professor of physics at UW-Milwaukee, and Xavier Siemens, an associate professor of physics at Oregon State University.
On the debut episode of Curious Campus, UWM’s new podcast about science, discovery and culture, we look at Mars exploration with guests Jean Creighton and Darian Dixon.
An international team of astronomers that includes one from UWM has discovered unusual radio signals that fit no currently understood variable radio source and could suggest a new class of stellar object.
UWM researchers trying to untangle the mystery of the eastern gray tree frog mating rituals found it hard to study in the pond. So they built their own.
For the first time, researchers have confirmed the detection of a collision between a black hole and a neutron star. In fact, the scientists detected not one but two such events occurring just 10 days apart in January 2020.
An international team of astronomers, including several from UWM, have renewed funding from the National Science Foundation for their work in detecting and characterizing low-frequency gravitational waves, a transformational challenge in astrophysics.
The honor recognizes Ava Udvadia’s research into the genetics that allow healing of nerve damage, along with her efforts to encourage undergraduates to participate in that work.
Many organisms use sunlight to fuel cellular functions. But exactly how does this conversion of solar energy into chemical energy unfold?
