Craig Lent, Frank M. Freimann Chair Professor of Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, presents his research project, "What Recent Quantum Experiments Tell Us about the World: You Are Not a Machine," to an interdisciplinary group of scholars, artists, and scientists comprised of fellows, guest faculty, and students.

Professor Lent received the bachelor's degree in Physics from the University of California, Berkeley. He received his doctorate in solid state physics from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. His doctoral thesis concerned the explanation for the origin of RHEED oscillations during MBE growth of semiconductors. Philip Cohen and Alan Goldman were his doctoral advisors. Lent was a post-doctoral researcher with John Dow in the Physics Department at Notre Dame, working on the theory of deep-level defects in semiconductors. In 1986 he joined the Electrical Engineering Department at Notre Dame. He and colleague Wolfgang Porod arrived in the same year and begin to build the quantum devices group at the Notre Dame.
