Kaden Hazzard is an associate professor of physics at Rice University, Texas. He received his Ph.D. in 2010 from Cornell University, New York, after which he completed a postdoctoral fellowship at JILA, Colorado. He is a theorist interested in quantum many-body systems, especially in ultracold matter. His group works at the locus of ultracold systems, condensed matter, and quantum information. Ongoing research includes novel quantum simulations using atomic, molecular, and optical systems, synthetic dimensions, exactly solvable models, and exotic matter.

Photons Get Slippery

Researchers have turned light into a superfluid by using a “synthetic” dimension, which is created by using temporal degrees of freedom to mimic spatial degrees of freedom. Read More »
