The team is the first to directly image propagation and dynamics of graphene plasmons at very low temperatures; their findings could impact optical communications and signal processing.
“This is definitely an anomalously active moment, especially with both storms making landfall, and this current one looking to be pretty intense by the standards of the region,” said Adam Sobel, an extreme weather expert at Columbia.
“It’s a totally new way of studying earthquakes,” said study coauthor Benjamin Holtzman. “These machine learning methods pick out very subtle differences in the raw data that we’re just learning to interpret.”
A volcanology team from Columbia is on-site to witness Hawaii’s volcanic eruption and be of service to the local authorities in their constant chase to monitor the volcano and protect the public.
