.: What matters...

We are devoted to the investigation, creation, manipulation, and control of novel solid state materials with superior properties. The thrust of our research is to develop a comprehensive understanding of the interaction mechanisms between quantum structures, with the objective to apply the coupling mechanisms as tools in future quantum technologies.


.: ...and you?

Undergraduates and Graduates interested in learning about man-made quantum structures are welcome to participate in our group meetings (please sign up for PHYS195/296). We discuss recently published papers relevant to our work, and of course our own research, on-going experiments, data analysis, and interpretations. In Spring 2014 we meet Thursdays at 10:00am in S&E 300. We have many research opportunities available for excited and enthusiastic Undergraduate students!
