Fundamentals of Scientific Discovery

The U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration has designated Elevate Quantum as a Regional Technology Hub for Quantum Information Technology. A regional consortium of over 70 organizations, including Mines, Elevate Quantum is driving innovation in Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming.
In a paper recently published in the journal Nature, a team of physicists from Colorado School of Mines, Duke University, Michigan State University, and the University of Maryland realized the dream of building a 1D magnet using a trapped-ion quantum simulator.
Pylypenko was honored “for outstanding contributions to surface and interface analysis of energy materials and impactful commitment to education and outreach,” according to her award citation.
C. Michael McGuirk, assistant professor of chemistry, will conduct research on atomic-level studies of flexible sponge-like structures used in separations
Fueled by Mines’ materials science program, the goal of the Institute for Data-Driven Dynamical Design (ID4) is to harness the power of advanced computation and artificial intelligence to accelerate discovery in material science
Jessica Lawson, a PhD student in materials science, and Paul Varosy, a master’s student in quantum engineering, have been awarded the 2023 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. The
Meenakshi Singh, associate professor of physics at Colorado School of Mines, has won a Fulbright-Nehru Professional and Academic Excellence Award to conduct quantum physics research at one of the top
“It proved to be a seven-year journey to isolate the first molecule containing californium(2+), but we were rewarded with chemical and physical properties that had not been anticipated,” Thomas Albrecht-Schönzart said.
“Creating an approachable and intellectually stimulating environment is key to bringing more women of all backgrounds into the field of computing,” said Iris Bahar, professor and head of the Computer Science Department at Mines.
“The complexity and scope of this mission is a good demonstration of the breadth of research going on in the Physics Department and at Mines as a whole,” Professor Lawrence Wiencke said.
