A group of physics researchers from UC Merced have revealed that a fluid made from biological molecules found in human cells behaves much like ordinary fluids that are mixed externally, such as paint. Except in the case of the biological fluids, no external mixing is required — it’s...
http://youtu.be/rkDx5_KBtNA UC Merced physics major Alessandro Castelli uses lasers to hold and stretch cells and other tiny objects. Working alongside Professor Jay Sharping, Castelli takes what he's learning in the classroom and uses it in the Applied...
Using solar thermal energy to power an air conditioning unit can be difficult and expensive. But a team of researchers at the University of California, Merced, have added a game-changing advance to the process that could make it much simpler, less costly...
UC Merced's physicsgroup is defying the odds. Women make up 14 percent of physics faculty at U.S. degree-granting institutions, according to a 2010 survey by the American Institute of Physics. At UC Merced, three of the eight professors are women, or...
UC Merced physicist Sayantani Ghosh has been given a CAREER Award to further her research into the dynamics of 'exotic' magnets Quick Facts Physics Professor Sayantani Ghosh has been awarded the National Science Foundation's CAREER Award. The $450,000...
