Magnetic fluids offer hope for treatment of retinal detachment
Someday silicone magnetic nanoparticles may be used to treat retinal detachment. Similar materials may also be used to increase the memory on your computer. (2000-08-22)

Salt Lake City researcher receives national award
Joel S. Miller of Salt Lake City, Utah, will be honored on March 28 by the world's largest scientific society for pioneering development of molecule-based magnets. He will receive the American Chemical Society Award in the Chemistry of Materials at the Society's 219th national meeting in San Francisco. (2000-03-21)

Better memory
A revolutionary new type of digital storage memory, funded since its infancy by the Office of Naval Research, recently reached a milestone and transitioned into the testing and debugging phase of its development. This new technology -- Vertical Giant Magnetoresistance Random Access Memory, or VRAM -- was conceived and demonstrated by the Naval Research Laboratory and Carnegie Mellon University. (2000-02-27)

Moldable, 'tunable' magnets make their debut in February 25 Science paper
What if researchers could create a tough, lightweight, moldable material, with (2000-02-24)

1999-2000 Weizmann Women & Science Award
The American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science will present its 2000 Biennial Women & Science Award. Established in 1994, the Award was created to honor an outstanding woman who has made significant contributions to the scientific community. (2000-01-11)

Mars Update: Barren Planet Once Hummed With Magnetism, Leaving "Tattoos," Science Papers Suggest
The cold, barren crust of Mars conceals ancient remnants of its fiery youth 4 billion years ago, when an (1999-04-30)

National Science Board Honors Maxine Frank Singer With Vannevar Bush Award
The National Science Board (NSB) has named Maxine Frank Singer, Ph.D., president of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, D.C. to receive the 1999 Vannevar Bush Award for lifetime contributions to science and engineering. (1999-04-15)

Researchers Achieve One Teraflop Performance With Supercomputer Simulation Of Magnetism
A team of scientists from Lawrence Berkeley and Oak Ridge national laboratories has reached a supercomputing milestone, getting their simulation of metallic magnetism to run at 1.002 Teraflops -- more than one trillion calculations per second. (1998-11-09)

Triggering Of Volcanic Eruptions
Based on an historical analysis of volcanic and earthquake data, Carnegie Institution's Alan Linde and Selwyn Sacks suggest that small deformations in volcanoes caused by seismic wave disturbances of the subterranean magma chambers may point to a volcano's imminent eruption. They assert that there is a pressing need to continuously monitor the deformation of active volcanoes using high-sensitivity methods. (1998-10-28)

Why Is Africa So High?
Scientists at the Carnegie Institution report that a large, hot upwelling originating at the core-mantle boundary is responsible for the anomalously high elevation of southern Africa--the so-called African Superswell. (1998-09-16)

Do Giant Planets Form Quickly Or Slowly?
Carnegie's Alan Boss suggests that by looking for wobbles in young stars, astronomers can determine the mechanism by which giant planets form around them. (1998-05-14)

Electron Experiment Holds Promise For Electronics Industry
A recent experiment in which the movements of electrons between a conductor and an insulator were recorded on a femtosecond time-scale holds significant promise for the electronics industry. Working with a unique femtosecond spectroscopy system, scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have successfully demonstrated a technique that could revolutionize the understanding of electron dynamics at surfaces and interfaces. (1998-03-10)

Astronomers Find Spiral Dust Lanes Fueling Black Holes
Figuring out how mass from the outer parts of active galaxies is transported to the galaxies' centers, to fuel black holes, has been a big problem in astronomy. Now, two Carnegie astronomers report that spiral dust lanes appear to provide that mechanism. (1998-01-09)

George Wetherill To Receive National Medal Of Science On December 16
Carnegie's George Wetherill, a long-time staff member and former director of the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism, will receive the nation's highest scientific award on December 16. (1997-12-15)

Astrophysicists Solve Mystery Of Gas Flow From Sunspots
One of the classic problems of solar physics has been solved, and the solution turns out to be a model of solar gas flow first proposed by a University of Rochester astrophysicist in 1988. In a paper to appear in the December 4 issue of Nature, John H. Thomas presents a more realistic version of the siphon-flow model, which predicts how gas flows from sunspots into the solar atmosphere. (1997-12-03)

Fossils Show British Columbia Was Once 2,000 Miles South
Extinct sea creatures have provided evidence that about 80 million years ago the west began to wander. University of Washington paleontologist Peter Ward and his collaborators report in Science that the discovery of pearly fossil shells of ammonites on two islands off the coast of Vancouver Island indicate that British Columbia and southern Alaska were once where Baja California is today. (1997-09-11)

UB Scientists Find Strongest Evidence Yet That Magnetic Field May Enhance, Not Kill, Superconductivity
University at Buffalo physicists have found the strongest evidence yet for the existence of reentrant superconductivity, which, if it exists, would radically change thinking about superconductivity and magnetism. The research is described in a paper in todayƕs issue of Physical Review Letters. (1997-04-14)

Purdue Study Aims To Boost MRI Capabilities
Biomedical researchers are using a unique device to obtain information that will enable developers of Magnetic Resonance Imaging systems to produce faster, more precise scans without causing discomfort to patients. Findings will be presented April 16at the meeting of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance Medicine (1997-04-04)

Slow Earthquakes Seen As Complex As Regular Earthquakes
In December 1992, two borehole strainmeter devices located close to the San Andreas Fault picked up a series of deformation signals that the instruments, deployed in 1984, had never before detected. The signals, which lasted for about a week, were from a (1996-09-05)
