Texas A&M physicist Tatiana Erukhimova takes her trademark flair for STEM education and science outreach to Hollywood, appearing today on “The Jennifer Hudson Show” and airing locally on ABC affiliates across Texas and the nation.
Physicist Ralf Rapp serves as principal investigator for the HEFTY Collaboration, one of five Department of Energy projects that are bringing together leading U.S. nuclear theorists to expand our knowledge of nuclear matter.
Texas A&M physicist Olga Kocharovskaya has been selected to receive the 2023 APS Ramsey Prize, awarded annually to recognize outstanding contributions to atomic, molecular and optical physics as well as precision tests of fundamental laws and symmetries.
Five Texas A&M Science faculty recently have been appointed to endowed chairs and professorships in the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics and Astronomy in recognition of their accomplishments and international scholarly excellence.
Two new images from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope show what may be among the earliest galaxies ever observed. Both images include objects from more than 13 billion years ago, and one offers a much wider field of view than Webb’s First Deep Field image, which was released amid great fanfare July 12. The images represent […]

Dr. Robert C. Kennicutt Jr., a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Texas A&M University, has been appointed as a University Distinguished Professor. Kennicutt, who also serves as executive director of Texas A&M’s George P. and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics and Astronomy, is a globally renowned expert in observational […]
When Texas A&M University physicist David Toback was elected eight years ago as co-spokesperson and overall physics coordinator for the CDF collaboration at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), he had one primary goal: to help the group’s 400-person active author list publish the collaboration’s important legacy papers and final results. Although […]
Three new studies predict the measurement-induced phase-transition behavior for quantum systems that have long-range coupling between their qubits. Quantum computers derive their power from the complex entanglement structure that “builds” between their qubits over time. But reading out information from such a computer requires measuring the state of individual qubits, a process that can impact […]
An international effort to quantify wave-particle duality in photons that originated with a Texas A&M University scientist in 2020 has been honored as a Physics World Top 10 Breakthrough of 2021. The Institute for Basic Science in South Korea’s Tai Hyun Yoon and Minhaeng Cho and the Stevens Institute of Technology’s Xiaofeng Qian were cited […]
Three years ago this month, Texas A&M University physicist Ralf Rapp was first author on a paper that currently ranks as the top-cited article among all those appearing in the peer-reviewed Elsevier journal Nuclear Physics A during the past five years. The paper, “Extraction of heavy-flavor transport coefficients in QCD matter,” summarizes the results of a […]
Two faculty in the College of Science are among 20 Texas A&M University faculty named to the 2021 class of Presidential Impact Fellows, announced October 28 by the Office of the Provost and Dean of Faculties. Emily Pentzer, an associate professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and Department of Chemistry, and Louis Strigari, […]
Two Texas A&M University faculty members — mathematician Dr. Peter Kuchment and astronomer Dr. Casey Papovich — have been elected as 2021 Fellows of the American Physical Society (APS), the world’s largest organization of physicists. Each year, no more than one-half of 1 percent of the organization’s current membership is selected by their peers for inclusion […]
Texas A&M University astronomer Dr. Lucas Macri has been selected as one of the university’s four Southeastern Conference (SEC) Academic Leadership Development Program (ALDP) Fellows for 2021-2022, announced Texas A&M Dean of Faculties and Associate Provost Dr. Blanca Lupiani. Each year the SEC offers its 14 member schools a unique opportunity to foster potential academic […]
Texas A&M physicist Dr. Tatiana Erukhimova is one of three university faculty members who have been appointed to 2021 University Professorships in Undergraduate Teaching Excellence (UPUTE) at Texas A&M University. Erukhimova, an instructional professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, will hold one of two Eppright Professorships in Undergraduate Teaching Excellence, a three-year appointment […]
If the success of the Lead by Example campaign has sent one message, it is this: Texas A&M University is ready to take its next big step forward. With its resources, leadership and famously loyal network of former students, there is little reason for Texas A&M to aim for any standard less than that of the greatest public […]
Fourteen research projects — including two led by faculty from the Texas A&M University College of Science — have been chosen for 2020-2021 funding under The Texas A&M University System National Laboratories Office Collaborative Research Program aimed at increasing engagement between Texas A&M System and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) researchers. Each fall, researchers are […]
Dr. Vladislav Yakovlev, professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University, received the 2021 Harold E. Edgerton Award in High-Speed Optics from the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE). “It is a major award by a large photonics society, and I am extremely fortunate to be recognized by this award,” Yakovlev […]
Texas A&M University physics professor M. Suhail Zubairy once proposed a scenario to his freshman class: If he were to throw a ball against a wall, common sense tells us that there is no probability it can go through the wall to reach the other side. But by the principles of quantum mechanics, under certain […]
