Discovery Park’s Tim Filley discusses the Arequipa Nexus Institute on Tech Nation Radio

April 23, 2018

From Tech Nation Radio: On this week’s Tech Nation, we discover what science might do for Food, Energy, Water and the Environment in the Arequipa Valley of Peru. Purdue University geosciences professor Tim Filley describes their work. Tech Nation is a weekly public radio program, hosted by Dr. Moira Gunn. Founded in 1993, it has grown from a simple interview show to a multi-faceted production, featuring conversations with noted technology and science leaders, and a weekly science and technology-related commentary.

Critical Transition in Critical Zone of Intensively Managed Landscapes

April 17, 2018

Expansion and intensification of managed landscapes for agriculture have resulted in severe unintended global impacts, including degradation of arable land and eutrophication of receiving water bodies. Modern agricultural practices rely on significant direct and indirect human energy inputs through farm machinery and chemical use, respectively, which have created imbalances between increased rates of biogeochemical processes related to production and background rates of natural processes.

Purdue contributes to experiments on light-matter interactions for potential quantum technology applications

April 16, 2018

Purdue researchers collaborated in a Rice University-led study detecting a quantum shift that results from the strong coupling of light and an ultra-high mobility two-dimensional electron gas rotating in opposite directions. The work, published on April 16 in Nature Photonics, describes a system predicted to go into a new ground state (or state of lowest energy) that physicists could use to study phase transitions and possibly harness for the development of quantum bits for advanced computing. Researchers found that inducing strong coupling of light and matter in the form of a two-dimensional electron gas leads to a quantum interaction of counter-rotating fields called the Bloch-Siegert shift.
