WSU physicist discovers new atomic oscillation
April 1, 2009

PULLMAN – WSU Professor Matt McCluskey has discovered a new type of atomic oscillation that could impact solid-state phenomena ranging from diffusion to electronic device performance. The result was published in the April issue of the journal Physical Review Letters,


The practical implications of the phenomenon McCluskey has discovered include better understanding of matters like how heat is dissipated from computer chips. 


“This is an example of the long-term work needed to address fundamental questions in the physical sciences. The work – like a great deal of science research … » More …
