Wright Lab Quantum Sensing Workshop

Quantum science is one of five top priority areas identified by Yale University’s Science Strategy.  Yale’s Wright Lab is exploring the applications of quantum science and sensing to tests of fundamental physics.  This workshop, hosted by Wright Lab as part of Quantum Week at Yale, brings together researchers from Wright Lab to discuss their work and future opportunities in this field.

Date: Friday, April 8, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Location: Wright Lab, room WL-216 or via Zoom at: https://yale.zoom.us/j/92641998079
Organizing Committee: Keith Baker (chair), Jack Harris, Karsten Heeger, Steve Lamoreaux, Reina Maruyama, Victoria Misenti, David Moore, Laura Newburgh, James Nikkel 
Keynote Speaker:  Dr. Dmitry Budker, Helmholtz Institute Mainz at Johannes Gutenberg University and University of California, Berkeley
