Summary: SPECIAL EXPERIENCES FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS
Graduate students work on almost all the research projects at iQCD. The projects make it
possible for them to work towards their PhD theses. They have written numerous
research papers, and have had the opportunity to present their work at domestic and
international conferences. They are also involved in mentoring undergraduate students
and they participate in summer programs for both undergraduates and high school
students.
Here are just a few examples:
SHERWIN GROUP:
Dan Allen, Chris Morris, Nathan Jukam and Cristo Yee are all participating in a
unique, interdisciplinary research program funded by the NSF to investigate quantum
information processing with semiconductor nanotstructures and microcavities. They
have had the opportunity to interact closely with Pierre Petroff from UCSB's materials
Department, as well as theorist Craig Pryor from University of Iowa and photonic crystal
expert Jelena Vuckovic from Stanford. In October 2005, the program was kicked off
with a joint meeting at which all of the PIs and co-PIs were present. Collaboration is
sustained via frequent teleconferences to include our collaborators from other
institutions. Nathan Jukam also spent one week at Stanford working with the Vuckovic
group, which led to insights that enabled him to break through an intellectual log jam,
write a very nice paper that has appeared in Applied Physics Letters, and complete his
