The Kavli Foundation
Directors of the Kavli Institute at Cornell for Nanoscale Science, Paul McEuen and David A. Muller, discuss the Institute's mission to push the technology of observation, measurement and control to ever-smaller dimensions.
The Kavli Institute at Cornell for Nanoscale Science has announced the appointment of a new director and co-director -- appointments that will also bring a change in focus for the institute.
A new study of gamma rays shows that less than a third of the emissions arise from black-hole-powered jets from active galaxies.
Researchers have a newly precise way to measure the size and age of the universe and how rapidly it is expanding, on a par with other techniques.
A massive planet outside our Solar System is being distorted and destroyed by its host star, a finding that helps explain the unexpectedly large size of the planet, WASP-12b.
From how massive humpbacks glide through the sea with ease to the efficient way fungal spores fly,
applied mathematicians have excavated the equations behind a variety of complex phenomena.
New images from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope show where supernova remnants emit radiation a billion times more energetic than visible light.
Scientists created a new type of flexible solar cell, enhancing the absorption and efficiency, while bringing costs down.
