Professor Schwab's current focus is on the question of quantum physics at large length scales, what does it take to observe quantum phenomena with ordinary matter and the largest possible scale. The techniques used to probe this are quantum-limited measurements of motion, ultra-low temperature physics, nanotechnology and microfabrication techniques, and ultra-sensitivity microwave measurement.
