Congratulations to Dr. James Nakamura, who was announced the winner of the 2022 Lee Osheroff Richardson (LOR) Science Prize from Oxford Instruments! He is being recognized for “the first direct observation of anyonic braiding statistics for quasiparticles at the v=1/3 fractional quantum Hall state.” Read more in the Oxford press release, Oxford Instruments Announces Selection of Dr. James Nakamura of Purdue University as the Winner of the 2022 Lee Osheroff Richardson (LOR) Science Prize.

Research team under Prof. Michael Manfra is the subject of Purdue News press release, Researchers at Purdue demonstrate bulk-edge coupling of anyons. They are being recognized for recent Nature Communications publication, Impact of bulk-edge coupling on observation of anyonic braiding statistics in quantum Hall interferometers. The new publication provides confirmation for their 2020 work, observing evidence for fractional statistics of anyons, but more importantly, it explores the physics of anyons through rational design and control of interferometers.
