Cornell will conduct a survey of the sub-terrain on campus and in the towns of Ithaca and Dryden Sept. 21-25, the next step in its plan to implement Earth Source Heat.
A Cornell-built hand-held device for detecting a form of cancer common in sub-Saharan Africa was successful in initial testing in Uganda.
Topological Waveguiding near an Exceptional Point: Defect-Immune, Slow-Light, and Loss-Immune Propagation
Electromagnetic waves propagating in conventional wave-guiding structures are reflected by discontinuities and decay in lossy regions. In this Letter, we drastically modify this typical guided-wave behavior by combining concepts from non-Hermitian physics and topological photonics.

Despite higher-than-normal amounts of rain in early 2017, the large agricultural and metropolitan communities that rely on groundwater in central California experienced only a short respite from an ongoing drought.
The Paleontological Research Institution and the university’s Sea Grant program raising funds to bring climate change science to every U.S. high school.
Daniel Lee, Ph.D., Professor comes to Cornell Tech after 17 years at the University of Pennsylvania where he was the UPS Foundation Chair Professor in the School of Engineering and Applied Science. At Cornell, he will teach in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. His research focuses on understanding computational principles in biological systems, and applying that knowledge to build autonomous robotic systems. Before UPenn, Lee was a researcher at AT&T and Lucent Bell Laboratories in the Theoretical Physics and Biological Computation departments. He was also a fellow of the...
