Faculty Inventors Recognized
Three faculty members at North Carolina State University are being named fellows by the National Academy of Inventors.
First Study of Arthropods in U.S. Homes Finds Huge Biodiversity
The first study to evaluate the biodiversity of arthropods in U.S. homes finds that humans share their houses with any of more than 500 different kinds of arthropods – at least on a short-term basis.
Online Tool Aims to Help Researchers Sift Through 15 Centuries of Data
Digital humanities scholars are launching a powerful new system to help researchers more quickly and accurately sift through hundreds of thousands of archives and articles related to materials dating from 450 A.D. to the 20th century.
Researchers Create First Entropy-Stabilized Complex Oxide Alloys
NC State researchers have created the first entropy-stabilized alloy that incorporates oxides – and demonstrated conclusively that the crystalline structure of the material can be determined by disorder at the atomic scale rather than chemical bonding.
Spirits Rejoice! A Musician and Scholar Talks About Jazz, Religion, and American Culture
Religion professor and jazz musician Jason Bivins talks about his new book that explores the links between religion, jazz and American culture.
Electron Spin Brings Some Order to High Entropy Alloys
High entropy alloys (HEAs) are known for amazing properties -- and having chaotic atomic structures. But researchers have discovered that electron spin brings a previously unknown degree of order to HEAs, and may play a role in giving the alloys desirable properties.
