Latest News From the College of Sciences
"Spooky action at a distance" is how Albert Einstein initially lampooned quantum entanglement, the intimate connection of two subatomic particles -- like electrons -- even when separated by long distances. Now, experimental physicist Martin Mourigal has observed strong indications in a crystal of perhaps billions of electrons interconnected in one massive entanglement at a distance -- an extremely rare quantum spin liquid.
President Barack Obama has renewed the appointment of Georgia Institute of Technology Regents’ Professor, Julius Brown Chair, and School of Chemistry and Biochemistry Professor Mostafa A.
