Clinton Potts’ manuscript accepted to PRX!

We are happy to report that Clinton Potts' most recent manuscript has been accept to Phys. Rev. X.  PRX is extremely selective, demonstrating the significance of his results on dymanical backaction in cavity magnomechanics.  Watch out for more cool results from Clinton on this project...

3He paper chosen as PRL Editor’s Suggestion

We are thrilled to be highlighted with an editor’s suggestion!

3He paper accepted to PRL

Our first paper on 3He was accepted to PRL today, with joint first authorship for Alex Shook and Vaisakh Vadakkumbatt.  They used Helmholtz resonances to map the phase diagram of 3He under confinement and oberved the stability of a pair-density wave.  Beautiful work guys.

Congratulations Brad!

Brad Hauer successfully defended his PhD thesis and has become Dr. Hauer!

Congratulations Callum!

Callum Doolin successfully defended his PhD thesis and is now Dr. Doolin!

Congratulations Tommy!

Tommy Clark successfully defended his MSc today and is heading back to McGill to work on his PhD.  Well done Master Clark.

Congratulations Paul!

Nanofab master, Paul Kim, successfully defended his PhD today.  Dr. Kim is now working with excellent local MEMS company, Norcada.  

Congratulations Clinton!

PhD student Clinton Potts has won the Willa & Stuart B Woods Graduate Scholarship in Physics.  This prize is given to just one incoming graduate student in condesed matter physics per year.  Well done Clinton!

Paul Kim wins Raith Micrograph Award 2017!

PhD student Paul Kim has won the 2017 Raith Micrograph Award!  This is a fantastic international competition and will support Paul to attend the international nanotechnology related conference of his choice.  Quite the testament to Paul’s skills both in nanofabrication, and as an artist.

Matthew and Holly at the CUPC

Matthew Thiessen put up some stiff poster-session competition talking about his microwave cavities at the Candian Undergraudate Physics Conference, held this year at Carelton University in Ottawa, but Holly Christiani won over the judges with her quartz tuning forks and secured best poster!
