Since its inception U Chicago faculty have received 81 Nobel Prizes and currently have 7 Nobel Laureate professors on board. Today U Chicago has approximately 15,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional degree students. The Pritzker School of Medicine and the University of Chicago Medical Center are known for their research, patient care and teaching facilities. Their achievements in biology, physics, computer science and technology have been realized due to their ability to attract substantial grants and their reputation for first class research.

Researchers use light to control magnetic fields at nanoscale

In thin, two-dimensional semiconductors, electrons move, spin and synchronize in unusual ways. For researchers, understanding the way these electrons carry out their intricate dances—and learning to manipulate their choreography—not ...

Engineering robust and scalable molecular qubits

The concept of "symmetry" is essential to fundamental physics: a crucial element in everything from subatomic particles to macroscopic crystals. Accordingly, a lack of symmetry—or asymmetry—can drastically affect the ...

Building better quantum sensors

Usually, a defect in a diamond is a bad thing. But for engineers, miniscule blips in a diamond's otherwise stiff crystal structure are paving the way for ultrasensitive quantum sensors that push the limits of today's technologies. ...
