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.
A study in the United Kingdom found that COVID-19 may decrease brain volume. Texas A&M neuroscientist Jessica Bernard explains the implications for those who have been infected, including an estimated one in three Americans since January 2020.…Read More→ The post COVID-19 Could Have Lasting Effects On The Brain appeared first on the The College of Arts and Sciences News page.

Scientists including Texas A&M astronomer Justin Spilker used the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array along with the Hubble Space Telescope to study a newly-dormant galaxy that stopped forming stars due to fuel loss during the merging process — a discovery that’s shedding new light on galaxy evolution.
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 […]
Texas A&M University and its partners in the Giant Magellan Telescope announced today (Aug. 2) they have secured a $205 million investment from its international consortium to accelerate construction of the most powerful telescope ever engineered featuring the world’s largest mirrors. This investment marks one of the largest funding rounds for the telescope since its founding […]
Ever since NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope successfully launched on Christmas morning, Texas A&M University astronomer Casey Papovich has been looking forward to Christmas in July — a milestone moment marking the official end of the telescope’s six-month instrument calibration and testing period and the beginning of its scientific operations set to transform our understanding […]
Texas A&M Physics and Astronomy’s Addy Evans Selected for Department of Energy Graduate Student Research Award
Addy J. Evans ’21, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Texas A&M University, has been selected to receive a United States Department of Energy Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program Award in support of research addressing scientific challenges central to the agency’s mission and workforce development. Evans, who is completing […]
A Texas A&M University-led collaboration has yielded new insight into one of the universe’s most important primordial reactions that made all life on Earth possible. The multi-institution team of nuclear scientists that also includes researchers from Washington University in St. Louis and Ohio University concluded in a recent study that the role neutrons play in […]
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 […]
Texas A&M University and its partners in the Giant Magellan Telescope announced today (Mar. 8) they have awarded IDOM, a renowned engineering and architecture firm based in Spain, a contract to complete the telescope enclosure design by 2024. The award follows an extensive enclosure designer evaluation and selection process based on a detailed set of criteria […]
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 […]
