Norman Yao is an Assistant Professor of Physics at the University of California, Berkeley. His research lies at the interface of atomic, molecular, and optical physics, condensed-matter physics, and quantum-information science. His current interests include the quantum dynamics of nonequilibrium systems and the quantum simulation of exotic many-body phases. He received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2014.


Seeing Scrambled Spins

Two experimental groups have taken a step towards observing the “scrambling” of information that occurs as a many-body quantum system thermalizes.   Read More »
