Congratulations to the recipients of the Q-FARM Bloch Fellowship! Q-FARM's Bloch Fellowship awards two years of funding funding for up to six researchers, with an option for a third year.
The fellowship is named in honor of the late professor of physics, Felix Bloch, whose discoveries play a foundational role in the field. Professor Bloch, along with Edward Purcell (Harvard), received the Nobel Prize (Physics) in 1952 – Stanford’s first – "for their development of new methods for nuclear magnetic precision measurements and discoveries in connection therewith.” Felix Bloch came to Stanford in 1934 and became emeritus in 1971.

Please join us in welcoming them to Q-FARM!
Scientists at Stanford and SLAC have created a silicon chip that can accelerate electrons using an infrared laser to deliver, in less than a hair’s width, the sort of energy boost that takes microwaves many feet.
Professor Jelena Vučković has been awarded the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) A F Harvey Engineering Research Prize. She will develop an on-chip integrated pulsed laser, which will revolutionize photonic technology and the applications that require these lasers, such as medicine, optical communications, quantum computing and self-driving cars.
