Aug 06, 2018 - Marino wins NSF CAREER grant

OU physics professor Alberto Marino is the recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER (Faculty Early Career Development Program) Award in the amount of $500,000. Alberto will study new possibilities for the use of the spatial degree of freedom in applications ranging from long-distance quantum communications to quantum imaging. The use of that degree of freedom in long-distance quantum networks can bring about a revolution to the field of quantum information science by making it possible to transmit large amounts of information through a quantum channel. The implementation of a source with such capability has a wide range of transformative applications, such as secure communications, information processing and distributed quantum computing.

This research will be integrated with an education program that will develop the problem-solving skills of undergraduate students through participation in research and teaching laboratories. Another outreach opportunity will involve high school teachers from the NSF Research in Engineering and Teaching Program. Efforts will be made to involve underrepresented groups in the research program.

Jun 07, 2018 - Dabbieri named 2018 Astronaut Scholar

HDL student Collin Dabbieri has been named one of the 2018/19 Astronaut Scholars of the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF). This scholarship recognizes an elite group of students in the US with exemplary academic performance, ingenuity and unique aptitude for research.

The incoming Astronaut Scholars are invited to attend the ASF Innovators Gala in Washington DC in September, where they will receive the Neil Armstrong Award of Excellence, recognizing their achievements. An astronaut will present all Astronaut Scholars with their award on stage during the Saturday night gala.  

Congrats Collin!
