Prof. Ashvin Vishwanath
Prof. Ashvin Vishwanath, together with four colleagues, has been awarded the 2016 European Physical Society Condensed Matter Division Europhysics Prize "for the theoretical prediction, the experimental discovery and the theoretical analysis of a magnetic skyrmion phase in MnSi, a new state of matter"...


Harvard Physics and JILA cientists propose a space-based gravitational wave detector consisting of two spatially separated, drag-free satellites sharing ultra-stable optical laser light over a single baseline. Each satellite contains an optical lattice atomic clock, which serves as a sensitive, narrowband detector of the local frequency of the shared laser light...

Hawking, Perry, and Strominger suggest that black holes might have "soft hair," low-energy quantum excitations that release information when the black hole evaporates.


Large, bilayer graphene single crystals can be grown by oxygen-activated chemical vapour deposition...


The relation between structure and dynamics in glasses is not fully understood. A new approach based on machine learning now reveals a correlation between softness - a structural property - and glassy dynamics...


Topology and geometry are essential to our understanding of modern physics, underlying many foundational concepts from high-energy theories, quantum information, and condensed-matter physics. In condensed-matter systems...
