Soap bubbles trip the light fantastic: #CLEstate Science Photo of the Month

It’s a soap foam selfie!

Andy Resnick, Ph.D., of Cleveland State University made this remarkable photograph of soap bubbles (magnified 4x) using an imaging technique known as reflection differential interference contrast.

It splits the illuminating light into two overlapping beams. The amount of separation of the beams is very slight — below the resolution limit of the lens.

CSU and CWRU students team up with rp+m to build drink-mixing robot using 3-D printers

Meet Bar2D2. He never went to war a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. But he can mix a drink for you.

Luke Louder, an electrical engineering student at Cleveland State University’s Washkewicz College of Engineering, designed the robot’s electronics and software.

“It was a cool project because it involved electrical as well as mechanical components,” Louder told ENGAGED. “Incorporating all those elements posed some very interesting engineering challenges.”

CSU researcher Roman Kondratov unlocks secrets of aging

Timing is everything – even when it comes to eating. Just ask Roman Kondratov, Ph.D., of Cleveland State University. His research focuses on molecular and cellular mechanisms of biological rhythms.

“We think that the metabolic response to food is determined by not only what you eat, but also when you eat,” said Dr. Kondratov, associate professor in the Department of Biological, Geological and Environmental Sciences at CSU and member of the University’s Center for Regulation in Health and Disease.

Portrait of a lightning bolt: #CLEstate Science Photo of the Month

Leave it to Andy Resnick, Ph.D., of Cleveland State University to capture lightning in a bottle – or at least with a camera.

“Lightning occurs when the electrical potential between two clouds or a cloud and the Earth exceeds the breakdown voltage of air, which is approximately 1 million volts per meter,” explained Dr. Resnick, assistant professor of physics at CSU.

He shot this striking photograph during a recent Northeast Ohio storm.

“Often, what appears as a single lightning bolt is actually multiple back-and-forth sparks that follow the original path of least resistance,” Dr. Resnick said. “The high voltages present within a lightning bolt strip electrons off atoms, creating a plasma of ionized air. When freed electrons rejoin atoms, light is emitted – accompanied by a thunderclap.

‘An excellent suggestion’: Cleveland State University gets the green light

As Cleveland State University prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary, we thought you would enjoy this letter, dated July 3, 1964, from Ohio Governor James A. Rhodes to Harold W. Oyster, chairman of the Ohio Board of Regents.

Rhodes wrote:

This is a formal acknowledgment of receipt of your letter of June 24 in which, as Chairman of the Ohio Board of Regents, you transmitted the recommendation of the Board that action be taken by the Ohio General Assembly to establish by law a new state university to be located in Cleveland and to be named the “Cleveland State University.”

Rhodes went on to praise the recommendation as “an excellent suggestion.”

Fifty years later, we couldn’t agree more.
