Research Description

Dr. Safavi-Naeini's group has pioneered the field of quantum acoustics and succeeded in demonstrating measurements of individual quanta of sound and the generation of entangled quantum states of motion. His invention focuses on developing nanoscale mechanical oscillators that can be easily arrayed on a chip's surface to detect proteins with unprecedented sensitivity and speed by accurately measuring their masses.
