Short Course on "Quantum Systems, Information, and Entanglement" by Dr. Spyros Tserkis

Join Dr. Spyros Tserkis of his 3-part short course!

Starting Wednesday (April 13 at 4pm EDT) and the next two Wednesdays (April 20 and 27 at 4pm EDT) Dr. Tserkis will be giving a 3-module short course on "Quantum Systems, Information, and Entanglement" at the Center for Quantum Networks.

It's  an introductory course for students who want to learn the basics of quantum information and quantum communication. The only requirement is some familiarity with undergrad quantum mechanics and linear algebra.

The course will be given through Zoom, and the link is:...

Abstract: Despite the continued scaling down of transistors since the invention of the integrated circuit over seventy years ago, recent trends have deviated from Moore's predictions, due to fundamental physical limitations including heat dissipation. With data centres already using...

Coverage of our work on imaging phonon-mediated hydrodynamic flow

Harvard coverage of our recently published work.

Notable quotes by group members:

“We can think of the phonon-mediated interactions between electrons by imagining two people jumping on a trampoline, who don’t propel each other directly but rather via the elastic force of the springs,” Dr. Yaxian Wang from the NarangLab describes...

Imaging phonon-mediated hydrodynamic flow, published in Nature Physics

Our work on phonon-mediated hydrodynamic flow in WTe2 was just published in Nature Physics

This work is the result of an intensive collaboration across Harvard (the Yacoby group and NarangLab), MIT, and the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids (Gooth and Felser). Inspired by the considerable interest and mysteries in non-diffusive...

Dominik is starting on the physics faculty at Tel Aviv University. Congratulations!

A big congratulations to Dr. Dominik Juraschek on his new position on the physics faculty at Tel Aviv University! Dominik joined the NarangLab in 2019 as an SNF Fellow working on dynamics of quantum materials, especially states of matter that can be induced via vibrational processes. Here's a link to his...
