New Publications from BioIce Lab

The BioIce Lab, under the direction of Boise State Assistant Professor Konrad Meister, recently published articles in two scientific journals.


Cover of Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Journal

Dr. Meister collaborated with Ingrid de Almeida Ribeiro and Valeria Molinero from the University of Utah for their article in the EGU’s Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Journal. “HUB: a method to model and extract the distribution of ice nucleation temperatures from drop-freezing experiments” was published in ACP on May 22, 2023. It presents the HUB method to model and interpret ice nucleation experiments. This method is used to extract distributions of ice nucleation temperatures from bacteria, fungi, and pollen, which reveal subpopulations of nuclei and how they respond to changes in their environment.

Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, published by the European Geosciences Union, is a not-for-profit international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and public discussion of studies investigating the Earth’s atmosphere and the underlying chemical and physical processes.


Cover of The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters

True Origin of Amide I Shifts Observed in Protein Spectra Obtained with Sum Frequency Generation Spectroscopy” was also published on May 22, in ACS’s Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters. For this article, Konrad Meister worked with a group of scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany. Kuo-Yang Chiang, Fumiki Matsumura, Chun-Chieh Yu, Daizong Qi, Yuki Nagata and Mischa Bonn are co-authors. Dr. Meister’s latest collaboration in JPCL investigates structurally diverse proteins using conventional and heterodyne-detected VSFG spectroscopy.

The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, published by the American Chemical Society, reports research of interest to physical chemists, biophysical chemists, chemical physicists, physicists, material scientists, and engineers.
