  3. Top-notch presenter: UW-La Crosse senior aces WiSys research competition

    Photo of UW-La Crosse senior Jason Martin, who took first place in the second of three Student Research & Innovation Showcases at the WiSys SPARK Symposium on June 9, 2021. Martin's research explores how scientists can use electrochemistry to coat steel plates with zinc while controlling the properties of the zinc film (hardness and roughness, for example) by altering the electric source.

    Jason Martin’s presentation was the best of the bunch. The UW-La Crosse senior studying chemistry and biochemistry took first place in the second of three Student Research & Innovation Showcases at the […]

  10. UWM researchers take a leading role in finding elusive mergers of black holes with neutron stars

    Photo of an artist's interpretation showing a merger of a black hole and neutron star. The neutron star is in blue, with the rainbow colors representing pieces of the neutron star being torn off by the black hole. In these discoveries, however, the black holes likely swallowed their neutron stars whole because no light was detected in either event. (Illustration by Carl Know, OzGrav, Swinburne University)

    For the first time, researchers have confirmed the detection of a collision between a black hole and a neutron star. In fact, the scientists detected not one but two such […]
