Notre Dame physicists are working on a laser transmission spectroscopy tool that will be able to detect the presence of nanoparticles in suspension, as well as determine the type and number of the nanoparticles. The tool can detect particles so tiny and diffuse that they cannot be seen with any existing technology, and it extends to a range many orders of magnitude below what has previously been achieved. No technology in existence can provide the size and shape of such things as viruses in suspension, making the tool truly groundbreaking in its performance.…

Berry named Outstanding Referee by APS

February 10, 2011 • Categories: News


Professor H. Gordon Berry has been named as an Outstanding Referee by the American Physical Society for 2011. The American Physical Society initiated the highly selective award program in 2008 to recognize scientists who have been exceptionally helpful in assessing manuscripts for publication in the APS journals. The selection of Outstanding Referees was made based on over two decades of database records on over 50,000 referees (some no longer in active service) who have been called upon to review manuscripts, of which over 35,000 were submitted in 2010. The basis for selection was the quality, number and timeliness of their reports, without regard for membership in the APS, country of origin, or field of research. This year 144 Outstanding Referees received this honor.…
