Moungi Bawendi speaks about approaching challenges, mentoring trainees, and the developing field of quantum dots
My job is to keep up the enthusiasm and persevere. Research is slow and things don’t usually work the first time. You have to have a vision of what you want, and you have to solve problems.
A common thread repeated throughout the meeting was some low-income students' concern that the flat rate would strip them of the benefits that opting into tier-3 housing provided.
Nov. 2 is the day of the Angelika Amon Young Scientist Award Presentations and Reception at the Koch Institute.
There’s a high-pressure system over the northeast in the coming days giving us a hopefully dry weekend. Light winds on Friday may feel chilly but the weekend ahead looks to be warmer. This weekend could be a great opportunity to take a break by getting outside to enjoy some more moderate temperatures before we cool down in time for winter. There are fall leaves on the ground but no snow quite yet, but it might be time to start thinking about unearthing your winter gear.

In the hours after the intifada rally, President Kornbluth released a lukewarm statement in which she denounced all forms of hate without mentioning the CAA by name or making note of their calls to violence. We call on President Kornbluth to use her presidential voice to directly condemn these calls for violent intifada against Jews.
Brief Tender Light offers a half-baked reflection on American higher education for international students
With this summer’s dual Supreme Court decisions in SFFA v. Harvard and SFFA v. UNC, higher education is deserving of a critical artistic lens now more than ever. Brief Tender Light, focusing on African students at MIT, ventures an attempt at this lens but doesn’t succeed.
Drone delivery services may become ubiquitous soon enough as drone operating prices decrease and demand for rapid delivery options increase. But what will they imply for consumer privacy?
On Oct. 23, LIGO researchers at MIT, Caltech, and other institutions reported that they had surpassed the quantum limit. This marked a significant advance in quantum squeezing, a method for reducing quantum noise to obtain more precise measurements. Researchers will now be able to measure a larger volume of the universe by analyzing gravitational frequencies.
