The paper that describes our collaborative work with Donhee Ham’s group on a new CMOS-neuroelectronic interface was published in Nature Biomedical Engineering and was featured in Nature Blog and Harvard News. This new high-throughput intracellular-recording interface, which enables for massively parallel, intracellular recording of mammalian neurons and their networks, opens up new possibilities for functional connectome mapping and electrophysiological screening.
Congratulations to Helena Knowles who starts as a lecturer (equivalent to an assistant professor in the US) at the Department of Physics, University of Cambridge UK!
Our collaborative paper on electron-phonon Cerenkov instability in graphene was published in Science. This observation opens up possibilities for tunable terahertz generation and active phononic devices based on two-dimensional materials.
Congratulations to Jellert Gaublomme who starts in January as an assistant professor of biological sciences at Columbia University in the City of New York!
