Hands pass buckets to the left containing spheres and arrows representing quantum states. Most are blue but one is red and is failing to move the bucket.

We conduct curiosity-driven research that explores the most basic building blocks of nature with an eye toward potential applications in information science and technology.

    Quantum Measurement and Control

    Creating quantum states on demand and controlling them is a critical component to developing practical quantum-based devices.

    Learn More about Quantum Measurement and Control

Condensed matter physics is about understanding all the properties of phases of matter. I think that our work is really expanding our understanding of how to define new topological properties and how to characterize phases of matter better.
