In this session, we extend the solution of the motion of oscillators with one degree of freedom without damping to the case where damping can no longer be ignored.
Associate Professor of Biological Engineering and Brain and Cognitive Sciences Ed Boyden explains optogenetics and how it is used in neurological research.
Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering Jeff Grossman explains photovoltaics/solar cells.
Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Scott Aaronson explains quantum computing.
Scientists first discovered chromosomes in the late 1800s, after the light microscope was invented. Using these microscopes, biologist Walter Flemming observed many tightly wound, elongated structures in cell nuclei.
The cocktail boat and floral pipette are two culinary devices inspired by nature and created through a collaboration between scientists and chefs.
