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.
As part of an ongoing joint project of two Big Ten schools, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the University of Iowa, researchers are digitizing and transcribing much of Walt Whitman’s correspondence so fans and scholars of his work can get a glimpse of his daily life, and read musings on his life, work and historic events, including the Civil War and Reconstruction.More
The onset of the last ice age may have forced some bird species to abandon their northerly migrations for thousands of years, says new research led by a University of Nebraska-Lincoln ornithologist.More
