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...


Magnetic fields from neuronal action potentials (APs) pass largely unperturbed through biological tissue, allowing magnetic measurements of AP dynamics to be performed extracellularly or even outside intact organisms. To date, however, magnetic techniques...


Primordial features are one of the most important extensions of the Standard Model of cosmology, providing a wealth of information on the primordial Universe, ranging from discrimination between inflation and alternative scenarios...


Fig. 1(a): Composition of perovskites under consideration
The recent surge in research on metal-halide-perovskite solar cells has led to a seven-fold increase of efficiency, from ~3% in early devices to over 22% in research prototypes. Oft-cited reasons for this increase are...


Atoms, photons, and other quantum particles are often capricious and finicky by nature; very rarely at a standstill, they often collide with others of their kind. But if such particles can be individually corralled and controlled in large numbers, they may be harnessed as quantum bits, or qubits...


Electrons in a solid can team up to form so-called quasiparticles, which lead to new phenomena. Physicists have now studied previously unidentified quasiparticles in a new class of atomically thin semiconductors...
