Exotic phases of matter can emerge from strong correlations in quantum many-body systems. Quantum gas microscopy affords the opportunity to study these correlations with unprecedented detail. In the latest issue of Science, Prof Markus Greiner and members of his group report site-resolved observations...


Congratulations to Prof. Jenny Hoffman who, for a third time in a row, won the national title in "North Coast 24," the USA Track & Field National Championship 24 Hour Run, held annually in Cleveland, Ohio!


In the last couple of years, deep learning techniques have transformed the world of artificial intelligence. One by one, the abilities and techniques that humans once imagined were uniquely our own have begun to fall to the onslaught of ever more powerful machines. Deep neural networks are now better than humans at tasks such as face recognition and object recognition...


Dr. Roxanne Guenette
The Physics Department is pleased to announce that Dr. Roxanne Guenette, currently the Ernest Rutherford Fellow in the Physics Department at the University of Oxford, will be joining the faculty as Assistant Professor on July 1, 2017.


Physicists have proposed a method for entangling hundreds of atoms, and then entangling a dozen or so groups of these hundreds of atoms, resulting in a quantum network of thousands of entangled atoms...


How to Make Anything Poster
This fall, the physics department is hosting a section of the MIT course, "How to Make (Almost) Anything" for the third year. This course covers a wide range of fabrication techniques, including laser cutting, 3D printing, PCB fabrication and design, embedded processing, molding and casting, and composites...


The analysis of Fourier-transformed scanning tunnelling microscopy images with subatomic resolution is a common tool for studying the properties of quasiparticle excitations in strongly correlated materials...


Topological quantum phases cannot be characterized by Ginzburg–Landau type order parameters, and are instead described by non-local topological invariants. Experimental platforms capable of realizing such exotic states now include...


The National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) has issued a new Report, Advancing Quantum Information Science: National Challenges and Opportunities, which prominently features results from several Harvard Physics research groups.


Dr. Igor Pikovski
Postdoc Igor Pikovski has been awarded the Branco Weiss Fellowship by the ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology). The Fellowship, which is given to outstanding postdoctoral researchers selected from a pool of international applicants...
