Linking health and population patterns via satellite
Linking health and population patterns via satellite 18 June 2019For many remote communities around the world, diseases like measles are still a very real concern. But as Penn State Assistant Professor of Biology Nita Bharti has found, the answer to providing accessible health care in these areas might lie in satellite imagery.
Ants maintain essential interactions despite environmental flux
Ants maintain essential interactions despite environmental flux 12 June 2019Ants adjust their social interactions to accommodate changes in population density, according to researchers at Penn State and Georgetown University. The findings suggest that ant colonies are capable of maintaining their sophisticated social organization despite potentially drastic changes in their environments.
Adding a carbon atom transforms 2D semiconducting material
Adding a carbon atom transforms 2D semiconducting material 24 May 2019A technique that introduces carbon-hydrogen molecules into a single atomic layer of the semiconducting material tungsten disulfide dramatically changes the electronic properties of the material, according to Penn State researchers who say they can create new types of components for energy-efficient photoelectric devices and electronic circuits with this material.
