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, http://link.aps.org/abstract/PRL/v102/e135502.

 

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