Notre Dame Researchers Open Path to New Generation of Optical Devices

Cameras, telescopes and microscopes are optical devices that measure and manipulate electromagnetic radiation [light]. Being able to control the light in these devices provides more information through a better “picture” of what is occurring. Specifically, controlling light on small scales...

2017 Naughton Fellowship Awardees Announced

The research fellowships were awarded to undergraduate, Masters, and Ph.D. students from the University of Notre Dame and from five universities in Ireland. Three of the undergraduate fellows will work with NDnano faculty.

Notre Dame Imaging Facility to host 4th Annual Microscopy Workshop

The event will feature presentations from faculty across the region, including Purdue University and the University of Michigan, and focus on highlighting new trends of in-situ and high-resolution electron microscopy for nanotechnology, materials, and biosciences.

Solved: Decades-old mystery in theoretical condensed matter physics

Researchers in the Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics group of Professor Boldizsár Jankó and collaborators have solved a decades-old mystery of fluorescence intermittency – blinking – that indicates classical physics behavior in a quantum mechanical system. 

Paul Bohn Receives 2017 ACS Award in Electrochemistry

Paul Bohn, Arthur J. Schmitt Professor of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering and Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry, has been selected as the winner of the 2017 ACS Division of Analytical Chemistry Award in Electrochemistry. This prestigious award recognizes a...

Notre Dame Researchers Study Potential Cause of Common Birth Defect

Small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) proteins are small peptides that get added on to other proteins to regulate their activity. While SUMO has many regulatory roles in cells, it is especially important for controlling gene expression during early development. Just a...

Biocomputing: Imitating the Real Thing to Improve Life

Pinar Zorlutuna and a team of University researchers have created a new type of diode, one that is made entirely of cardiac muscle cells and fibroblasts. Their recently published paper titled “Muscle-Cell-Based ‘Living Diodes’” discusses how using muscle cells as...
