  • Cavity quantum electrodynamics with ensembles of ytterbium-171 

    Braverman, Boris (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    In this thesis, I present the realization of a system applying the tools of cavity quantum electrodynamics to an atomic optical lattice clock. We design and implement a unique experimental cavity structure, with a small ...
  • An emittance scanner for high-intensity, low-energy ion beams 

    Corona, Jesus, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    My work in this thesis is a contribution toward the IsoDAR experiment, which aims to test the sterile neutrino hypothesis. In the IsoDAR experiment, neutrinos are generated by a 60 MeV proton beam impinging on a 9Be target ...
  • Influence of gene expression gradients on positional information content in fly embryos 

    Hastewell, Alasdair (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    The concept of positional information was introduced to qualitatively explain how individual cells are involved in forming patterns. Recent experimental and theoretical developments have made studying specific biological ...
