Congratulations to the college's 3,000+ Fall 2022 Dean's List awardees.
Abba Gumel, Mohammad Hajiaghayi, Wolfgang Losert and Dana Nau received one of the most distinguished honors within the scientific community.
In a paper published in the journal Physical Review X, UMD researchers described how they set a record by guiding light in 45-meter-long air waveguides and explained the physics behind their method.
UMD-led team developed a miniaturized analyzer that may revolutionize how astrobiology discoveries are made on faraway moons and planets.
Fourkas has been a professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry since 2005.
Astronomers studying archival observations of powerful explosions called short gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) detected light patterns indicating the brief existence of a superheavy neutron star shortly before it collapsed into a black hole. This fleeting, massive object likely formed from the collision of two neutron stars.
The multidisciplinary team recently published papers in the journals iScience and eLife.
The grant supports UMD’s participation in a national, collaborative effort to foster undergraduate student success in the sciences.
