Lecture by Ramamurti Shankar,
John Randolph Huffman Professor of Physics, Yale University


In a new Nature Nanotechnology article, Hongkun Park and Donhee Ham (SEAS) groups describe a new tool they developed which is capable of high-precision electrophysiological recording of a large network of electrogenic cells - a long outstanding challenge in neurobiology and cardiology...


Two-dimensional (2D) materials offer a promising platform for exploring condensed matter phenomena and developing technological applications. However, the reduction of material dimensions to the atomic scale poses a challenge for traditional measurement and interfacing techniques that typically couple to macroscopic observables...


Prof. Bertrand Halperin

On January 31, 2017, Harvard Physics celebrated Prof. Bertrand Halperin's 75th birthday. Watch the talks by Jim Eisenstein, Nigel Cooper, Catherine Kallin, Chandra Varma, Yuval Oreg, Pierre Hohenberg, and Partha Mitra



Electron spins in semiconductors are promising qubits because their long coherence times enable nearly 109 coherent quantum gate operations. However, developing a scalable high-fidelity two-qubit gate remains challenging. In a new npj Quantum Information article*, members of Prof. Amir Yacoby's group...


Prof. John Kovac
Prof. John Kovac has been named a recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). He was recognized for his work in advancing the most sensitive measurements of polarization of the cosmic microwave background...


Recent experiments have uncovered evidence of the strongly coupled nature of graphene: the Wiedemann- Franz law is violated by up to a factor of 20 near the charge neutral point...


The story of time crystals - whose lowest-energy configurations are periodic in time rather than space - epitomizes the creative ideas, controversy, and vigorous discussion that lie at the core of the scientific process. Originally theorized by Frank Wilczek in 2012, time crystals were met with widespread attention...


Quantum information can be pumped around the edges of a two-dimensional system of bosons, pointing to a possible way to distribute entanglement in quantum communication...


In spin ladder systems, a single characteristic length scale controls the behavior of the spin polarization. In in a recent article in Physical Review Letters, Harvard Physics graduate and currently an Associate in Lukin's group, Norman Yao...
