A delegation of Princeton faculty members — led by President Christopher L. Eisgruber and including the University’s 2015 and 2016 Nobel laureates —took part in and led discussions on major global issues at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum that concluded Friday, Jan. 20, in Davos Switzerland.

4. Self-assembling particles brighten future of LED lighting

Princeton engineering researchers have illuminated another path forward for LED technologies by refining the manufacturing of light sources made with crystalline substances known as perovskites, a more efficient and potentially lower-cost alternative to materials used in LEDs found on store shelves.

5. In African 'fairy circles,' a template for nature's many patterns

Scientists have long debated how large-scale plant patterns such as the famous "fairy circles" of Namibia form and persist. Now, a new Princeton University-led study suggests that instead of a single overarching cause, large-scale vegetation patterns in arid ecosystems could occasionally stem from millions of local interactions among neighboring plants and animals. The work could explain many patterns throughout the world.

6. University projects will explore 'overlooked' topics in Princeton's history

Projects examining slavery, civil rights and community activism in the 1960s, and the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students, have received support from the Princeton Histories Fund. The fund fosters the exploration of "aspects of Princeton's history that have been forgotten, overlooked, subordinated or suppressed."

7. Climate change to alter global pattern of mild weather

Scientists from Princeton University and NOAA have produced the first global analysis of how climate change may affect the frequency of mild-weather days, which are defined as having temperatures between 64 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit (18 and 30 degrees Celsius) with low rain and humidity. The current global average of 74 mild days a year will drop by 10 days by 2100, with mid-latitude areas such as the United States experiencing more mild days and tropical areas seeing more hot and humid days.

8. Intersecting ideas: Cultural studies postdoctoral fellows bring new courses to campus

New postdoctoral fellows at Princeton are pursuing research and teaching in the areas of comparative cultures, race, ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and global health. The postdoctoral research associates are: Catherine Clune-Taylor; Tala Khanmalek; Amy Krauss; Alecia McGregor; Laurel Mei-Singh; and Nomi Stone.

9. Ricardo Piglia, celebrated Latin American writer who had a 'profound impact' on students, dies at 76

Ricardo Piglia, the Walter S. Carpenter Professor of Language, Literature and Civilization of Spain, Emeritus, at Princeton and professor of Spanish and Portuguese languages and cultures, emeritus, died Jan. 6 of cardiac arrest from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He was 76.
