Frantz Catches a Glimpse of New State of Matter with NSF Grant

Frantz Catches a Glimpse of New State of Matter with NSF Grant

As matter “cooks” to 4 trillion degrees Celsius—250,000 times hotter than the center of the sun—protons and neutrons melt into a liquid plasma of quarks and gluons. This liquid may have been present at the start of the universe for a few microseconds. But Dr. Justin Frantz has an even […]

Study Suggests Second Life for Possible Spintronic Materials

Study Suggests Second Life for Possible Spintronic Materials

Ohio University research merges manganese, gallium nitride in uniform layer Ten years ago, scientists were convinced that a combination of manganese and gallium nitride could be a key material to create spintronics, the next generation of electronic devices that operate on properties found at the nanoscale. But researchers grew discouraged […]
