John D. Teufel is an experimental physicist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado. After receiving his Ph.D. in physics from Yale University, he began research on microwave optomechanical circuits as a postdoctoral researcher at JILA (a joint institute between the University of Colorado and NIST). He is now a staff scientist in the Advanced Microwave Photonics Group at NIST, where his current research interests include quantum optomechanics, microwave quantum optics, superconducting circuits, and precision measurements.


Trampolines Sense a Disturbance in the Force

Researchers have engineered trampoline resonators that may be able to sense extremely weak forces and display quantum behavior at ambient temperatures. Read More »
