Chemical Engineering and Chemistry Researchers at Pitt and Penn State Develop Controlled Delivery of Particles via Fluid Flow

Capitalizing on previous studies in self-powered chemo-mechanical movement, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh’s Swanson School of Engineering and Penn State University’s Department of Chemistry have developed a novel method of transporting particles that utilizes chemical reactions to drive fluid flow within microfluidic devices.

New Delta Scuti: Rare Pulsating Star 7,000 Light Years Away is 1 of Only 7 in Milky Way

Discovered at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, a star — as big as or bigger than our sun — in the Pegasus constellation is expanding and contracting in three different directions simultaneously on a scale of once every 2.5 hours, the result of heating and cooling of hydrogen fuel burning 28 million degrees Fahrenheit at its core.

Penn Researchers Demonstrate How to Control Liquid Crystal Patterns

When Lisa Tran, a graduate student in the Department of Physics and Astronomy in the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Arts and Sciences, set out to investigate patterns in liquid crystals, she didn’t know what to expect. When she first looked through the microscope, she saw dancing iridescent spheres with fingerprint-like patterns etched into them that spiraled and flattened as the solution they were floated in changed.
