Michigan Tech Research Magazine 2011

Michigan Tech Research Magazine 2011 has three features on physics research this year. Left is Ranjit Pati, whose research team built a molecular computer using lessons learned from the human brain. In the middle are David Nitz and Brian Fick, who are corecipients of Michigan Tech’s 2010 Research Award in the fields of experimental particle physics and ultrahigh energy cosmic rays. On the right are boron nitride nanotubes representing the precision experimental work of Yoke Khin Yap and his research team.
