IACS New Recruit Wins $102,000 in NSF Graduate Research Fellowship

At five in the morning, Alex Borowicz woke up to find a hard-earned and welcomed message in his inbox. He discovered that he was one of the 2,000 awardees of this year’s NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). Out of 17,000 applicants, he was one of the lucky 12%. “Still being mostly asleep, it was exciting, but muted excitement,” he said with a chuckle.” Yet as the week continued, the reality of his achievement finally settled in.

Reports of 150,000 penguin deaths are greatly exaggerated

Recent headlines, displayed prominently on news sites around the world, were alarming, such as: “150,000 Adélie penguins killed by iceberg.” The stories suggested our flightless black-and-white friends were cut off by a Rhode Island-sized iceberg from their food supply. It was too late to save the “Happy Feet” characters. But the reality was anything but black and white. Read more ...

Stony Brook Researchers Discover Ice-like Phonons in Liquid Water

For more than 100 years, scientists have debated what the underlying molecular structure of water is, and the common view held has been that H2O molecules are either “water-like” or “ice-like.” Now through computer simulation conducted at the Institute for Advanced Computational Science (IACS) at Stony Brook University, researchers can illustrate that the structure and dynamics of hydrogen bonding in liquid water is more similar to ice than previously thought.
