UCR research “blew our minds,” says Scientific American
Recognition keeps coming in for UCR assistant research professor Hossein Taheri for his work with “time crystals,” which are being studied as a new state of matter. Scientific American last month named Taheri’s work as one of “6 Times Quantum Physics Blew Our Minds in 2022.” The article is an end-of-year wrap up that summarized a more detailed...
