From Mobile Phones to Russian Dolls to MASERs – January 20

Join us January 20 for “From Mobile Phones to Russian Dolls to MASERs,” an IMR Distinguished Lecture with Neil Alford, Imperial College London. In 2011, Alford and his colleagues discovered that a Bragg resonator with sapphire plates of aperiodic thickness could achieve an extraordinarily high Q factor for the resonator. This led them to the discovery that it was possible to construct a MASER operating at room temperature and in the earth’s magnetic field. This research was published in Nature doi:10.1038/nature11339.
