The École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) awarded an honorary doctorate to Professor Emily Carter, founding director of Princeton's Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, in recognition of her fundamental research in physical chemistry and its applications to developing better materials.
Featured press release entry: Quantum physics: The spins on the bus go round and round (pp 380-383)   The coupling between a spin qubit and a so-called ‘quantum bus’ is reported in a paper in this week’s Nature, opening up the possibility of transferring quantum information between distant spin qubits. The approach, which makes use of a superconducting microwave circuit (the quantum bus), is an important step towards realizing scalable quantum computing n
A team of five Princeton engineering graduate students is leading a yearlong field research project using new laser sensors to measure pollutants with unprecedented sensitivity.
On October 5th, the Princeton Materials Research Society Club (PUMRS) hosted 'Hardened Steel: A Metallurgy Event' at 87 Prospect. The event began with a 30 minute metallurgy talk from Prof. Craig Arnold, Associate Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Associate Academic Director of PRISM, followed by demonstrations from blacksmith Macauley and Cuper. More than 60 students attended the event and each student had an opportunity to participate and pound some steel. This
