Alum Update from Susan Clark, '04

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

Susan Clark, a former Duke Physics undergrad who graduated in 2004, was recently awarded a post doctoral fellowship at the Joint Quantum Institute between University of Maryland and the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Clark, who studied atom-light interactions in Prof. Daniel Gauthier's lab, will begin her fellowship after the completion of her graduate studies at Stanford University where she worked in Yoshi Yamamoto's lab and studied optical control and decoherence of semiconductor electron spins with applications for quantum information. She plans to continue in the field of quantum information, but switch to a different quantum system for her post doctoral work.  In the image above,  Clark is in front of one of Stanford University's magneto-optical cryostats.  She also happens to be wearing a Duke Basketball National Championship t-shirt.
