A conversation with Stevan Nadj-Perge, assistant professor of applied physics and materials science, about using 2-D materials in the development of a device that could turn quantum computing concepts into usable technology.
The Selection Committee of the Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics has announced a Special Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics recognizing the scientists and engineers who contributed to the detection of gravitational waves by LIGO.
Caltech professor of physics Rana Adhikari will describe how our understanding of the quantum physics of the very, very small has allowed us to explore the gravitational physics of the very, very large.
The Indian Cabinet has granted in-principle approval to the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory in India (LIGO-India) Project. The project will build an Advanced LIGO Observatory in India, a move that will significantly improve the ability of scientists to pinpoint the sources of gravitational waves and analyze the signals.
