  • Using laser light to trap atoms in a checkerboard-like pattern, a team led by Princeton scientists studied how resistance — the loss of electrical current as heat — can develop in unconventional metals.

    The results may help explain how certain types of superconductors made from copper oxides are able to conduct electricity so efficiently.

  • #TellUsTigers: “I grew up feeling very connected to the land — my dad grew up on a farm in rural China before immigrating to the US, and his experiences have fostered my interests in subsistence agriculture, environmentalism and conservation. Last June, I was part of a group of 16 students from the Princeton Conservation Society who went on a weeklong trip to Yellowstone National Park and American Prairie Reserve reserve in Montana. Though it was a steep and icy hike, we saw an incredible view of Yellowstone from the top of Bunsen Peak, pictured here. We set out to make a documentary about the current efforts of the American Prairie Reserve, a nonprofit dedicated to creating a wildlife conservation area of over three million contiguous acres, and to rehabilitating populations of native species such as bison and black-footed ferrets. These grassland areas in Montana have been called ‘the American Serengeti’ because they once possessed some of the grandest species on Earth. One day we were driving for what seemed like an hour through prairie, trying to find the Missouri River. The land stretched on for so long that it was hard to see where it ended and the sky began, and the only thing we could hear was the wind through the grasses and the quiet revving of the engine. It was a surreal beauty, and it was incredible to witness this monumental effort of large-scale land conservation. At Princeton University, I am writing my Woodrow Wilson School of Public & International Affairs junior paper about the role of electricity decarbonization in mitigating climate change. I am also earning a certificate in visual arts (Lewis Center for the Arts) and am interested in the development of the ‘ecological consciousness’ in the Anthropocene — incredibly fitting, with the ‘Nature’s Nation: American Art and Environment’ exhibit Princeton University Art Museum. Ultimately, I’m incredibly grateful and inspired to see this consciousness and awareness manifest itself in so many spaces at Princeton, from art to large-scale conservation to academia.” — Janette Lu ’20 third from left; with Devon Block-Funkhouser ’20, far left; Noah Mihan ’19; Will Brown ’20; Adam Chang ’20; and Jonathan Salama '21 #Princetagram

  • #TellUsTigers #PrincetonAbroad: “Half-asleep in my host father’s car on the road from the Marseille airport on my first day of Princeton’s Aix-en-Provence program last summer, I first saw Mont Sainte-Victoire under the rays of the gleaming ‘sud de France’ sun. My host father, clearly in his element as a tour guide, told me this was the very mountain immortalized in the paintings of Cézanne. He was adamant that I not leave Aix without climbing to the top. During my four weeks, I kept this mountain in the back of my head as I went through the cycle of classes, homework and dinner with my host family. I learned how to vary my sentences from the works of Émile Zola as well as how to use French toddler slang from my host sister Béatrice (age 2), starting to say ‘au dodo’ myself when referring to bedtime. My host brother, Guillaume, a proud 4-year-old, kept me on my toes, whether playing ‘le foot’ (soccer) in the backyard or correcting my grammar. While I will never forget these moments, what resonates most is my hike up the Sainte-Victoire with my host father and my friend Stephanie Schrage ’21 (right in this photo, taken on our hike) on my last day in Aix. We woke up before sunrise. It was still cold & dark outside. It was a difficult trek, and we made several stops to munch on ‘les biscuits’ and discuss the beautiful. We spoke only French. I found that speaking a foreign language highlighted parts of me I didn’t previously know I had. It was as if French was empowering me, imbuing me with a sense of optimism: I could climb this mountain and I would. I thought about how the hike was emblematic of my first study abroad experience: despite the mistakes I made and cultural differences, I was slowly but surely starting to speak more confidently. When we finally got to the top, the breathtaking view made the early start and arduous climb more than worthwhile. Today, a poster of Mont Sainte-Victoire hangs on the wall in my dorm room at Princeton University, a precious memory of my summer abroad.” — Anna Vinitsky ’21.
