Students Attend Gordon Research Conference

Friday, August 24, 2012

Graduate students Hannah Guilbert, Meizhen Shi, and Bonnie Schmittberger in Prof. Dan Gauthier's group, graduate student Huaixiu Zheng in Prof. Harold Baranger's group, and former Duke undergraduate Physics major Crystal Senko attended a Gordon Research Conference at Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts from August 12-17. The topic of the conference, Quantum Science, brought together some of the world's top researchers in the fields of Atomic and Optical Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, and Quantum Information Science. In the spirit of all Gordon Research Conferences, this experience granted graduate students the opportunity to not only listen to talks from the best in their respective fields, but also to learn about their unpublished work and immediate goals. The attending graduate students were also honored to present posters on their own research, which allowed them to receive feedback and questions from both fellow graduate students and top research scientists from around the world. They are pictured here with all conference attendees and speakers.
