APSU physics professor receives $300,000 NSF grant to conduct research on innovative glass materials

December 7, 2016

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Crystalline materials form the foundation of virtually all electronic equipment, serve as the engine powering Silicon Valley and have enabled the modern computing revolution.

But despite their importance, crystalline materials, which include silicon and sapphire and are valued for their unique properties, are naturally rare and expensive to produce.  By contrast glass materials, which do not arrange their atoms in a regular crystal structure, are inexpensive and easily produced.

For the past few years, Austin Peay State University undergraduate students and professors have been traveling the globe to work with some of the world’s leading experts in glass production as they explore possible substitutes for crystalline materials in computing, optical technology and other modern applications.

APSU biology grad students continue to excel in their research

October 28, 2016

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Since about 1950, the small-scale darter—a tiny fish that lives in tributaries of the Cumberland River—has existed in relative obscurity. Few scientists have heard of the darter or checked to see if the fish is in danger of disappearing.

But for the last year and a half, Joshua Stonecipher, a graduate student with the Austin Peay State University Center of Excellence for Field Biology, has waded into local streams, trying to get an accurate estimate of the darter’s population size.

APSU Field Biology graduate student Joshua Stonecipher has received three grants to study the darter fish that lives in tributaries of the Cumberland River.

Austin Peay’s Dr. Osvaldo Di Paolo Harrison publishes research book on Puerto Rican hardboiled fiction

August 10, 2016

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – On the surface, hardboiled literature tells a story of street smart investigators, navigating a world filled with action, intrigue and sex. Cynical antiheroes fighting for justice in a world just as corrupt as the bad guys they are trying to collar.

At its core, the genre is a cracked door, allowing the reader an opportunity to examine the social issues of the writer’s day. Topics of race, politics, corruption and violence are sometimes uncomfortably explored by a character adhering to a moral code in a world that seems to have lost its way.
