February | Lathrop was interviewed by Associated Press for an article on the Earth's magnetic field. Check it our here.
April | Daniel Lathrop wrote a book review in Physics Today for Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos: With Applications to Physics, Biology, Chemistry, and Engineering by Steven H. Strogatz (ISBN 978-0-813-34910-7)
The lab was visited and researchers interviewed for an article in The Washington Post on the effect of the sequester on university research funds.
Daniel Lathrop and Barbara Brawn-Cinani have published an article in Nature Physics on vortex rings titled Fluid dynamics: Lord Kelvin's vortex rings, which was mentioned in the press by articles in Scientific American and El Dia.
Superfluid experiment featured on Science News article "Quantum Whirls"
The article Angular Momentum Transport in Turbulent Flow between Independently Rotating Cylinders featured in the Search&Discovery article "Exploring the extremes of turbulence" of the January issue of Physics Today and in the synopses of physics.aps.org " Heat and twist of turbulent flows".
The results on reconnection of quantized vortices featured in the July issue of Physics Today. The title of the Search&Discovery article is "Filming vortex lines reconnecting in a turbulent superfluid".
