Research at Nebraska Surprising Discovery Contradicts Predictions
In a first-of-its-kind experiment, a Nebraska researcher upends longstanding theories about the fundamental interactions between X-rays and matter. His findings lay the foundation for future studies and open the door to engineering improved materials.
Research at Nebraska Laser Creates Surfaces that Mimic Nature
A Nebraska engineer harnesses the unique properties of biological systems to develop specialized metal structures. The resulting laser-made surfaces are a boon to the military, NASA, medicine and national defense.
Research at Nebraska Prospecting with Biosensors at Home or in the Field
Hand-held biosensors could make it easier, faster and cheaper to detect a variety of metals. By developing these portable metal-detecting devices, a Nebraska chemist could revolutionize how experts and homeowners explore for gold, test groundwater and detect air contaminants.
Red and processed meat – considered prime suspects in disease-related inflammation – might actually be aiding and abetting another culprit, says a recent study led by a University of Nebraska-Lincoln researcher.More
Rapid development of wind energy across the Great Plains has spurred concern about potential effects on grassland birds, but a new study by University of Nebraska-Lincoln researchers shows that at least one such bird — the endangered greater prairie-chicken — pays little attention to small-scale wind energy infrastructure in choosing nesting sites.More
The Nebraska Research Initiative is a state-funded program that invests $11.4 million annually in equipment, facilities and grants that are building the University of Nebraska’s capacity and competitiveness in areas important to the state’s economy and quality of life.More
