Benjamin L. Lev is an Associate Professor of physics and applied physics at Stanford University. He received his bachelor’s degree from Princeton in 1999 and his Ph.D. from Caltech. He was an NRC postdoc at JILA, and before joining the Stanford faculty as an Assistant Professor, he was an Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Benjamin’s research focuses on exploring the organizing principles of quantum matter through the development of techniques at the interface of ultracold atomic physics, quantum optics, and condensed-matter physics.


An Arrested Implosion

The collapse of a trapped ultracold magnetic gas is arrested by quantum fluctuations, creating quantum droplets of superfluid atoms. Read More »
