New paper

Our paper on coherent spin valley oscillations has been published in Nature Physics. Congratulations Xinxin!

Electrons in silicon experience a coupling between their spin (up and down arrows) and valley states (blue and red orbitals). In the presence of a DC voltage (blue glow) an electron can undergo coherent spin-valley oscillations. Image credit: Mike Osadciw

Goodbye Jake

REU student Jake Markowski joined us this summer to work on an atomic layer deposition system. Thanks for the great work, and good luck during your senior year!

Here they are…

We are excited to release our collection of quantumojis. We discovered that the terminology of quantum computing is pretty helpful in expressing how you feel! They make a great addition to your slack channel.
