Profile
Chartered in 1746, Princeton is the fourth-oldest college in the United States. Princeton is an independent, coeducational, nondenominational institution that provides undergraduate and graduate instruction in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and engineering.
As a research university, Princeton seeks to achieve the highest levels of distinction in the discovery and transmission of knowledge and understanding. At the same time, Princeton is distinctive among research universities in its commitment to undergraduate teaching.
The campus of 500 acres is located in Princeton, New Jersey, a town of approximately 30,000 residents situated about an hour's train ride south of New York City and an hour's train ride north of Philadelphia. It is about equidistant from Newark Liberty International Airport and Philadelphia International Airport.
There are approximately 4,850 undergraduate students enrolled at Princeton. An entering freshman class usually numbers 1,240, with students coming from all parts of the United States and from 95 countries. The men-to-women ratio is approximately 50:50. International students comprise about 10 percent of the undergraduates. More than half of the students in each entering class receive financial aid.
Princeton has approximately 850 full-time faculty members. All faculty members at Princeton teach as well as engage in scholarly research. The faculty includes recipients of the Nobel Prize in physics, literature, economic sciences, and medicine.

Machine Learning Gives Glimpse of How a Dog's Brain Works

Scientists have decoded visual images from a dog's brain, offering a first look at how the canine mind reconstructs what it sees. The results suggest that dogs are more attuned to actions in their environment rather than to who or what is doing the action.

Scientists Reveal Dark Matter Around Galaxies 12 Billion Years Ago

One of Nagoya University's leading research centers has made another groundbreaking discovery, looking back into parts of space further than ever before. Seeing something that happened such a long time ago is difficult. Because of the finite speed of light, we see distant galaxies not as they are today, but as they were billions of years ago. But even more challenging is observing dark matter, which does not emit light.

30-Year Perovskite Solar Cells, New Approach to Testing

Researchers have developed the first perovskite solar cell with a commercially viable lifetime, marking a major milestone for an emerging class of renewable energy technology. The team projects their device can perform above industry standards for around 30 years, far more than the 20 years used as a threshold for viability for solar cells.

NASA to Set Up Independent Study on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena

NASA is commissioning a study team to start early in the fall to examine unidentified aerial phenomena - that is, observations of events in the sky that cannot be identified as aircraft or known natural phenomena - from a scientific perspective. The study will focus on identifying available data, how best to collect future data, and how NASA can use that data to move the scientific understanding of UAPs forward.

Unmasking the Magic of Superconductivity in Twisted Graphene

The discovery in 2018 of superconductivity in two single-atom-thick layers of graphene stacked at a precise angle of 1.1 degrees (called 'magic'-angle twisted bilayer graphene) came as a big surprise to the scientific community. Since the discovery, physicists have asked whether magic graphene's superconductivity can be understood using existing theory, or whether fundamentally new approaches are required - such as those being marshalled to understand the mysterious ceramic compound that superconducts at high temperatures.

Lead From Leaded Petrol Persists in London Air Despite '90s Ban

Lead levels in London's atmosphere have dropped drastically since lead additives in petrol were phased out, and currently meet UK air quality targets. However despite this drop, airborne particles in London are still highly lead-enriched compared to natural background levels, according to new research.
