Caltech receives more than $33 million from American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
Date:2/24/2010

g key facts from published biological-science papers.

Among the other diverse Caltech projects receiving ARRA funds are:

  • a catalog of jellyfish DNA;
  • improving the speed of data collection at Caltech's Center of Excellence in Genomic Science;
  • studies into the fundamentals of particle physics;
  • the California High School Cosmic Ray Observatory (CHICOS) program, which provides high school students access to cosmic ray research;
  • the search for new astronomical objects such as flare stars and gamma-ray bursts, and the means to make those discoveries accessible to the public; and
  • a $1 million upgrade of the Southern California Seismic Network.

Caltech Professor of Mechanical Engineering Tim Colonius received ARRA funds for research into better understanding how noise is created by turbulence in the exhaust of turbofan aircraft engines and what might be done to mitigate it. Jet noise is an environmental problem subject to increasingly severe regulation throughout the world.

"To meet the ambitious noise-reduction goals under discussion, a greatly enhanced understanding of the basic physics is needed," says Colonius. "Very large-scale computer simulations and follow-up analyses will bring us much closer to the goal of discovering the subtle physical mechanisms responsible for the radiation of jet noise and allow us to develop methods for suppressing it."

Colonius received $987,032 in ARRA funds from the National Science Foundation.

Colin Camerer, the Robert Kirby Professor of Behavioral Economics, received his ARRA funds to explore the application of neurotechnologies to solving real-life economic problems.

"Our project, with my Caltech colleague Antonio Rangel, will explore the psychological and neural correlates of value and decision-making and their use in improving the efficiency of social allocations," says Camerer.

Camerer and his colleagues previously found that
