At the Intersection of Physics, Math and Medicine

Daniel Lazarev ’16YC: Exploring a Lifelong Passion for Scientific Investigation Through Nanophysics When Daniel Lazarev ’16YC co-authored an article with Dr. Fredy Zypman, professor of physics at Yeshiva College, for a recent issue of the Journal of Electrostatics, it was the perfect expression of Lazarev’s lifelong passion for scientific investigation. “I was a nerdy kid,”

Exploring Nanoscale Checkerboards

Yeshiva College Alumnus Shares Physics Research With Current Honors Students At a recent presentation to students in the Jay and Jeanie Schottenstein Honors Program at Yeshiva College, Mordechai Kornbluth ’12YC shared research he has been conducting into what he called “nano checkerboards.” The term describes an interesting phenomenon that occurs when atoms of magnesium and gallium,

Anatoly Frenkel Receives NSF Grant

International Research Project Will Study Electromechanical Actions Dr. Anatoly Frenkel, co-chair of the department of physics, has received a three-year grant of $447,438 from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to study how to create a new class of what are called “electrostrictors.” These materials experience strong deformation (known as electrostriction) when an electric field is
