Congratulations to Q-FARM 2019 Fellowship Awardees

The inaugural recipients of the 2019 Q-FARM student fellowships are

  • Yudan Guo (Physics) is member of Prof. Benjamin Lev’s research group, LevLab. Yudan's research is centered on many-body cavity QED. 

  • Yihui Quek (Applied Physics) is in Prof. Weissman’s Compression group. Her research areas are quantum Shannon theory and near-term quantum algorithms.

The QFARM student fellowships are awarded to advanced graduate students working in quantum science and engineering. Fellowship criteria are excellence in their research, and demonstrated potential for building new links within the Stanford quantum community. Each of the awardees will receive two years of funding.
Please join us in congratulating PhD candidates Yudan Guo and Yihui Quek.

Integrated nanophotonics promises a generation of spiffy, miniaturized optical components that could drive new capabilities, in applications from communications to lidar to quantum technology. But getting there requires packing huge optical functionality into a very small footprint—and that has been a formidable challenge in design, fabrication and just plain time.

Physicists were stunned when two twisted sheets of graphene showed signs of superconductivity. Now Stanford scientists have shown that the wonder material also generates a type of magnetism once only dreamed of theoretically.
