The Quantum Undergraduate Research at IBM and Princeton application for summer 2020 is now open. Applications are due March 16. Info at the following links:
Congratulations to Lia Yeh and Emma Dasgupta for earning the gold and bronze prizes at the ACM Student Research Competition at the MICRO Symposium! Lia worked with Margaret Martonosi and Steve Lyon, and Emma worked with Margaret Martonosi for the summer, and they were honored for their QURIP projects at Princeton on Qiskit:
Princeton University Quantum Theorists – Bogdan A. Bernevig (PI), along with Co-PI’s Ravindra Bhatt, F. Duncan Haldane, David Huse and Shivaji Sondhi – were awarded an EPiQS Theory Center by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation in July 2019 (https://www.moore.org/...
The Jamieson group published results from the D-Wave 2000Q machine at the NASA Ames Research Center in the ACM SIGCOMM 2019 Conference to be held later this year in Beijing, China.
Princeton will be starting a new summer undergraduate research program this year together with IBM, Quantum Undergraduate Research at IBM and Princeton (QURIP):
An excellent article that explains recent applications of topology in math, physics and engineering at the undergraduate level, featuring research at Princeton.
Title: "Welcome to the Weird Mathematical World of Topology"

September 2018: Edwin Chung was awarded the Yan Huo *94 Fellowship for excellence in research.
Researchers at NASA Ames Research Center/Universities Space Research Association and Professor Kyle Jamieson have a new NSF award at Princeton, details below:
Assistant Professor of Physics Waseem Bakr's group has a recent paper published:
Probing quench dynamics of antiferromagnetic correlations in a 2D quantum Ising spin system
Jeff Thompson, assistant professor of electrical engineering, together with postdoctoral researcher Alan Dibos and graduate students Mouktik Raha and Christopher Phenicie, has published the first reported observation of photoluminescence from a single erbium ion.
Two groups—one led by Jason Petta of Princeton University11. X. Mi et al., Nature (in press).
M.A. Mueed, who graduated from Prof. Shayegan's group, was awarded the American Physical Society’s “2018 Richard L.
The interplay of strong interactions and magnetic fields gives rise to unusual forms of superconductivity and magnetism in quantum many-body systems. Here, we present an experimental study of the two-dimensional Fermi-Hubbard model—a paradigm for strongly correlated fermions on a lattice—in the presence of a Zeeman field and varying doping.
Neereja Sundaresan, a Ph.D. student in electrical engineering, is one of four students who have been named winners of the Porter Ogden Jacobus Fellowship, Princeton University's top honor for graduate students.
Nematic quantum fluids with wavefunctions that break the underlying crystalline symmetry can form in interacting electronic systems. We examine the quantum Hall states that arise in high magnetic fields from multiple anisotropic hole pockets on the Bi(111) surface.
The room-filling machinery looks diabolical, clicking and whirring with wires running all over the place. Perched at a computer terminal linking him to the mysterious instrument is Jeff Thompson, a new faculty member in Princeton's Department of Electrical Engineering.
