Cassidy R. Berk received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he studied the ultrafast interactions between magnon and phonon systems in magnetic films and nanostructures. Currently, he is a postdoctoral researcher at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, working on the Advanced Quantum Testbed project, where he focuses on researching decoherence properties of materials for superconducting quantum devices.


A Quantum Tango between Magnons and Phonons

A nanopatterned magnetic structure features an unprecedently strong coupling between lattice vibrations and quantized spin waves, which could lead to novel ways of manipulating quantum information. Read More »
