Dr. Lea Ferreira dos Santos, professor and chair of the department of physics at Yeshiva University, has published “The quick drive to pseudo-equilibrium” in Nature Physics (January 4, 2021).

The abstract states that “a clever application of nuclear magnetic resonance techniques offers a glimpse at a quantum system driven at high frequency, resulting in Floquet prethermalization — a quasi-steady state that persists for a very long time.”

Dr. dos Santos notes that the “existence of Floquet phases with no static counterpart opens up a new direction in the search for robust non-equilibrium phases of matter.”

Read the profile of Dr. dos Santos in the latest issue of YU Today, “A Quantum Leap for Women in STEM.”
