Cohen group unravel root cause of plant twists and turns

plant root growth

To feed the world’s burgeoning population, producers must grow crops in more challenging terrain – where plant roots must cope with barriers.

Vinay Ambegaokar receives 2015 Bardeen Prize

Last week in Geneva Switzerland Vinay Ambegaokar received the 2015 John Bardeen Prize for his contributions to the statics, dynamics and kinetics of Josephson junctions and nanowires.

Vengalattore group develop novel quantum resonators


Mukund Vengalattore's group has developed a novel method of manipulating mechanical resonators to be sensitive enough to work at the quantum scale.

McEuen group twists and folds graphene like paper


Physicists in the McEuen research group use the principles of kirigami to manipulate graphene, laying the groundwork for future nano-machines.

Eun-Ah Kim group finds new insights to entanglement entropy

 Entanglement entropy scaling
Eun-Ah Kim's group reported in May 22 issue of Physical Review Letters that the poster child non-Fermi liquid state found at filling factor ν = ½ shows strongly enhanced quantum entanglement as a
