Princeton University researchers have developed a computational model for creating a "perfect glass" that never crystallizes — even at absolute zero. Published in Scientific Reports, the model is a new way of thinking about glass and details the extremely unusual properties of a perfect glass.

Discovery: Research at Princeton magazine features stories about faculty members and their teams of students and postdocs who are charting new territory and uncovering knowledge in science and engineering as well as the humanities, social sciences and the arts.
Research projects with the potential to benefit society that were on display at Celebrate Princeton Invention, an annual event held Thursday, Nov. 10. The event honored the over 350 Princeton faculty members, staff researchers and students who over the past year have made discoveries or advances in the natural sciences and engineering that have the potential to be further developed into technologies valuable to the public.
The mutually beneficial relationship between algae and modern corals — which provides algae with shelter, gives coral reefs their colors and supplies both organisms with nutrients — began more than 210 million years ago, according to a new study by an international team of scientists including researchers from Princeton University.
New imaging and fabrication facilities for the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM) were unveiled during a daylong event Oct. 26 at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment. The power of the new facilities comes from a combination of the sophisticated building that houses them, the highly skilled research staff members who run them, and the equipment itself.
Inaugural 'TigerTalks in the City' bring Princeton faculty to New York with focus on entrepreneurship
Earlier this month, faculty members from a variety of disciplines discussed big data and privacy for the inaugural “TigerTalks in the City" — a quarterly series designed to bring Princeton research with an entrepreneurship focus to New York.
Researchers at Princeton University and the University of Texas-Austin found that electrons, when kept at very low temperatures where their quantum behaviors emerge, can spontaneously begin to travel in elliptical paths on the surface of a crystal of bismuth.
William G. Bowen, president of Princeton University from 1972 to 1988 and a leader in higher education for more than half a century, died Thursday, Oct. 20, at his home in Princeton. He was 83.
The Mpala Research Centre is a remarkable partnership that enables Princeton scientists, and those from other institutions, to conduct world-class research in biodiversity, conservation, sustainable livelihoods, and, increasingly, climate change and public health.
Princeton scientists learn how bacteria construct a biofilm fortress, cell by cell. When encased in biofilms in the human body, bacteria are a thousand times less susceptible to antibiotics, making infections such as pneumonia difficult to treat and potentially lethal.
