Szalewicz group brings Teraflop supercomputing to UD campus

May 1, 2009 - The group of Prof. Krzysztof Szalewicz has recently acquired the most powerful supercomputing cluster on UD Campus.  The cluster will be used by Szalewicz group mainly to predict the structure of molecular crystals such as energetic materials or medical drugs. The cluster has been  purchased using funds provided by a DoD Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP) grant.

Bartol Research Institute featured in Arctic research publication

Launch of the Anti-Electron Sub Orbital Payload (AESOP)

March 10, 2009 - The University of Delaware's Arctic research and educational resources, including current projects in the DPA's Bartol Research Institute, are featured in a special insert in the current edition of Witness the Arctic, the biannual newsletter published by the Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS). Cosmic ray research, including the Anti-Electron Sub Orbital Payload (AESOP) and Spaceship Earth projects are both highlighted in the publication,  among many Bartol Research Projects.

UD researchers show that plants can accumulate nanoparticles in tissues

Nov. 11, 2008 - Interdisciplinary research at the University of Delaware, involving group of Prof. John Q. Xiao from the Department of Physics and Astronomy, has provided what is believed to be the first experimental evidence that plants can take up nanoparticles and accumulate them in their tissues. The laboratory study, which involved pumpkin plants, indicates a possible pathway for nanoparticles to enter the food chain. The research also reveals a new experimental approach for studying nanoparticles and their potential impacts.
