Physics Professor Featured in International Science Journal

Published: Nov 5, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 5, 2012) Alfred Shapere, professor in the UK Department of Physics and Astronomy, was featured in "Nature," an international weekly journal of science, for his recent paper describing framework or starting point to explaining how particles cope with fluctuations in gravity.

 

Co-authored by Shapere, Nobel laureate Frank Wilczek of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge and MIT graduate student Zhaoxi Xiong, the paper presents a straightforward way for quantum particles to move smoothly from one kind of ‘topological space’ to a very different one.

 

The collaborators suggest that their work might provide a simplified framework for understanding gravity's effects on quantum particles. They also explore other situations in which the spaces that quantum particles move in can radically alter, such as in condensed-matter-physics experiments.
