Martina Martinello (PHYS Ph.D. ‘16) has won the 2018 Particle Accelerator Science and Technology (PAST) Doctoral Student Award “for contributions to physical understanding of limiting factors in SRF [superconducting radiofrequency] cavities.” The PAST award is given annually to one recent...
Researchers at Illinois Tech have discovered how Chlamydia trachomatis obtains its energy. The discovery solves one of the biggest puzzles in the field and opens up new directions for future research, in particular to design new drugs that can target the Chlamydial metabolism. C....
Russell Betts, dean of the College of Science and Distinguished Professor of Physics, recently honored four people with Dean’s Excellence Awards. Senior Research Faculty: Fred Hickernell, professor of applied mathematics and director of the new Center for Interdisciplinary Scientific...
The Department of Applied Mathematics hosted the workshop “Mathematical Modeling and Computational Approaches in Physical and Biological Sciences” on November 21. Although it was two days before Thanksgiving, the workshop welcomed researchers from New Jersey Institute of Technology, Penn State...
The Precision Oscillation Spectrum Experiment (PROSPECT) is closer to realization, thanks in part to the work of Illinois Tech researchers. This summer and early fall, members of Illinois Tech’s PROSPECT team built a sub-assembly for the PROSPECT detector in a cleanroom in the basement of the...
Physics Ph.D. candidate Nicole Neveu researches next-generation particle accelerator technology at the Argonne Wakefield Accelerator (AWA) facility at Argonne National Laboratory. This fall, for three weeks, she participated in the “Adopt-a-Physicist” program led by physics honor society Sigma Pi...
What is it like to sell your startup as an undergraduate? “I didn’t imagine that I would be in this position when we started two years ago,” said Brendan Batliner (CS 3rd year). “We were college freshmen with interests in entrepreneurship and now we’ve sold our first company together.” Batliner...
College of Science Associate Professor of Chemistry Xiyun “Richard” Guan received a $422,500 three-year renewal award from the National Institutes of Health to continue his project entitled “Label-Free Nanopore Biosensor for Rapid, Ultrasensitive, and Multiplex Detection of Protease Activities.”...
Assistant Professor of Chemistry A. Jean-Luc Ayitou has published the article “Photon Upconversion Using Baird-Type (Anti)Aromaticity Quinoidal Naphthalene Derivative as a Sensitizer” in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C. Photon upconversion is the conversion of low-energy radiation to...
Two teams from Illinois Tech participated in the VandyHacks and DemonHacks hackathons. The VandyHacks team, comprised of Zeshan Sayed (ITM), Ahmed Sayed (CS), Akshatha Kadri (CS), and Abhishek Kumer (CS), took overall first place (among 71 teams) with their Intellectual Credit Repository ICR...
