Spinning…Marco Bernardi, professor of applied physics, physics and materials science; and Jinsoo Park (MS ’20, PhD ’22), postdoctoral scholar research associate in applied physics and materials science, have developed a new theory and numerical calculations to predict spin decoherence in materials with high accuracy…

“Existing theories of spin relaxation and decoherence focus on simple models and qualitative understanding. After years of systematic efforts, my group has developed computational tools to study quantitatively how electrons interact and move in materials…”, explains Bernardi.

…[I]n some cases [they] can predict spin decoherence times with an accuracy of a few percent of the measured values—down to a billionth of a second—and access microscopic details of spin motion beyond the reach of experiments…
