Distinguished Professor of Physics Philip R. Goode will discuss "The New Solar Telescope in Big Bear" at a Physics Department Seminar on Dec. 7, 12 noon-1 p.m. (11:30 a.m. tea time) in Tiernan Rm. 407. >>
NJIT researchers are at work on many scientific and technological frontiers. The National Science Foundation has recently provided support that totals nearly $4.3 million for the diverse efforts of the following investigators under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. >>
Students in a New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) architectural studio have a unique opportunity: design a group of townhouses that will actually be built by Habitat for Humanity next year. >>
Imagine beaming electric power from space as a viable solar energy option. Engineer and researcher Martin Hoffert, professor emeritus and former chair of the department of applied science at New York University, will discuss this theory further in a free lecture, open to the public, on Nov. 4, 2009 at NJIT, from 3-4:30 p.m. in the NJIT Campus Center Atrium. >>
During the next decade, solar physicists will learn more than they might have dreamed possible about the Sun, thanks to current technologies that have advanced the capacity of ground-based and space-based instruments.   All the more reason for the excitement on Oct. 3, 2009 when NJIT formally dedicates the new solar telescope at Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO), CA. >>
NJIT Professor Dale Gary, PhD, of Berkeley Heights, an expert in solar radio data, was promoted to distinguished professor.   Gary examines the conditions under which solar radio bursts from distinct solar events can disrupt cellular telephone signals. >>
NJIT's new 1.6-meter clear aperture solar telescope—the largest of its kind in the world—is now operational.  The unveiling of this remarkable instrument—said to be the pathfinder for all future, large ground-based telescopes—could not have come at a more auspicious moment for science.  This year marks the 400th anniversary of Galileo's telescope that he used to demonstrate that sunspots are indeed on the Sun.  >>
Philip R. Goode, PhD, distinguished professor of physics at NJIT, will be inducted tonight into the New Jersey High-Tech Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame was created in 1999 to recognize the best and the brightest New Jersey has to offer by honoring the achievements of life science and high-tech research and business leaders, educators, and government officials who have demonstrated exemplary work in innovative products and therapies.  Sponsors of the event are BioNJ, HINJ, and TechAmerica. >>
The Princeton Review today named NJIT among the nation's top 50 public undergraduate institutions for value. NJIT was included in the select listing because it has long been known for affordability nationally and in the region.  The annual tuition this year for in-state students is under $10,500. >>
