New! MPPL Lectureship Series Viewable Online – Audrey Bienfait Wins Michelson Postdoctoral Prize

Audrey Bienfait

The 2019 Michelson Postdoctoral Prize was awarded to Audrey Bienfait for her ground breaking experiments demonstrating the quantum limit of sensitivity in electron spin resonance and entangling superconducting bits using phonons. Dr Bienfait was in residence in the Case Western Reserve University Department of Physics the week of Feb 17, 2020. During her stay she delivered three seminars and the Physics colloquium and was featured in The Daily: “2019 Michelson Postdoctoral Prize brings top quantum researcher to campus.” 

Dr. Bienfait’s talks are available for viewing. Please enjoy and join us in congratulating Dr. Bienfait for her outstanding accomplishments as a young scientist and very bright future ahead!
