Mark Dykman is a professor of physics at Michigan State University. He has worked on various topics, including effects resulting from the interplay of decoherence, nonlinearity, and fluctuations in mesoscopic vibrational systems; Floquet dynamics of dissipative systems; transport in correlated electron systems; nonlinear optics of solids; rare events in far-from-thermal-equilibrium systems; and many-body aspects of quantum information. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society. In 2013 he was recognized as an Outstanding Referee by the American Physical Society.

Viewpoint: Stick-Slip Motion in a Quantum Field

An electron crystal sliding on liquid helium exhibits a qualitatively new type of stick-slip motion, resulting from the coupling of the electrons to a quantum field. Read More »
