Harnessing fundamental physics of topological insulators for thermoelectric energy conversion

June 19, 2014 - In the recent Nano Letters article, Prof. Nikolic and DPA graduate student Po-Hao Chang, in collaboration with Prof. Naoto Nagaosa and Prof. Mohammad Saeed Bahramy from the University of Tokyo and RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science in Japan, have proposed a new type of nanoscale thermoelectric which exploits fundamental physics of topological states of matter to convert waste heat into electricity.

UD scientists involved in 2013 Breakthrough of the Year in physics

December 13, 2013 - The IceCube South Pole Neutrino Observatory, an international scientific collaboration that includes researchers from the University of Delaware, has been awarded the 2013 Breakthrough of the Year by the British magazine Physics World. The Antarctic observatory has been selected for making the first observations of cosmic neutrinos. These particles, the “high-energy messengers of the universe,” zip through space and may yield important clues to the origins of the universe.
