Prof Helps to Develop New Device that Detects Radiation Better than Ever

by Texas A&M University
In a move that could have huge implications for national security, researchers have created a very sensitive and tiny detector that is capable of detecting radiation from various sources at room temperature. The detector is eight to nine orders of magnitude –100 million to as high as 1 billion — times faster than the existing technology, and a Texas A&M University at Galveston professor is a key player in the discovery.

International Team Develops a Longer, Stronger Cotton Fiber

by Texas A&M University
An international collaboration with strong Aggie ties has figured out how to make a longer cotton fiber -- information that a Texas A&M University biologist believes could potentially have a multi-billion-dollar impact on the global cotton industry and help cotton farmers fend off increasing competition from synthetic fibers.

Astronomers Discover Universe's Most Distant Galaxy
