Rice University experts demonstrate new method for optomechanical tuning
In a study published online this week in Nature Communications, researchers at Rice’s Laboratory for Nanophotonics (LANP) used ultrafast laser pulses to induce the atoms in gold nanodisks to vibrate. (May 7, 2015)

 

From brittle to plastic in one breathFrom brittle to plastic in one breath
Rice University theorists show environments can alter 2-D materials’ basic properties
What if peanut brittle, under certain conditions, behaved like taffy? Something like that happens to a two-dimensional dichalcogenide analyzed by scientists at Rice University.  (May 4, 2015)

 

Mariachis and margaritas: Celebrating 5 years as provostMariachis and margaritas: Celebrating 5 years as provost
“Farewells can get incredibly maudlin,” Provost George McLendon told faculty, staff and students at an April 30 reception at Cohen House honoring his five years as Rice’s chief academic officer. (May 4, 2015)

 

Chromosome-folding theory shows promiseChromosome-folding theory shows promise
Rice University researchers seek new understanding of gene regulation, other bio functions
Human chromosomes are much bigger and more complex than proteins, but like proteins, they appear to fold and unfold in an orderly process as they carry out their functions in cells. Rice University biophysicist Peter Wolynes and postdoctoral fellow Bin Zhang have embarked upon a long project to define that order.  (April 28, 2015)
