Lewis lecture announcement
3D printing enables one to rapidly design and fabricate materials in arbitrary shapes on demand. Prof. Lewis will introduce the fundamental principles that underpin 3D printing techniques...


Figure 1
A single M5-brane probing G, an ADE-type singularity, leads to a system which has G × G global symmetry and can be viewed as "bifundamental" (G, G) matter. For the A N series, this leads to the usual notion of bifundamental matter. For the other cases it corresponds to a strongly interacting (1, 0) superconformal system in six dimensions...

Grad student Michael Shulman and postdoc Marc Warner survey the state of condensed matter physics for the past nine years in a recent arXiv article...


Figure 8
Prof. Michael Brenner and colleagues from SEAS and Kavli Institute for Bionano Science and Technology have published an article in the latest issue of Nature Communication which describes their study of the spontaneous assembly of structures made of many kinds of components...


Prof. Eugene Demler has been honoured as a 'Distinguished Scholar' by the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics. This program has been launched by MPQ two years ago "in order to offer outstanding scientists from other research institutes worldwide new cooperation possibilities[...]


Book cover
Energy can be neither created nor destroyed—but it can be wasted. The United States wastes two-thirds of its energy, including 80 percent of the energy used in transportation...

Prof. Xiaowei Zhuang has received the 2015 National Academy of Science Award in Molecular Biology...


Figure 1
Precise coherent control of the individual electronic spins associated with atomlike impurities in the solid state is essential for applications in quantum information processing and quantum metrology...


Kim Bernard
Kim Bernard, visiting Artist-in-Residence in the Physics Department, has set up a studio in SciBox 302 for the spring semester. Bernard will be sitting in on physics labs and lectures, using the departments equipment to create new work and is looking forward to collaborating with students, faculty and staff...


Figure 2 (B)
Colloidal particles have been used as atom mimics and are often connected together using complementary DNA strands. Postdoc W. Benjamin Rogers and Prof. Vinothan Manoharan controlled the strength of the colloidal "bond" by using a set of competing...
