Golden Mole Award Features Awschalom Group

From 300 submissions for the Golden Mole Award, National Public Radio (NPR) has narrowed down the large group to a shortlist of 10 nominees, where  the Awschalom Group is currently the No. 2 nominee!

The Golden Mole Award celebrates surprising and unexpected discoveries in science and engineering: last year, Professor David Awschalom and his graduate students, Andrew Yeats and Peter Minutun, had a lightbulb moment where they discovered an entirely new way to draw and erase quantum mechanical circuits - all because of the newly installed fluorescent lights in their lab.

Congratulations to the Awschalom Group for this honor! Read more about their work and about the other Golden Mole Award nominees here.
