  • 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 ...
  • Intergalactic baryon enrichment and implications for galaxy evolution at high redshift 

    Cooper, Thomas (Thomas J.), Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    In this thesis we present several surveys of heavy element absorber characteristics at high redshift, gauging properties of diffuse intra- and intergalactic gas in the first several Gyr of the Universe. At z ~ 3.5, we study ...
  • Novel transport regimes in graphene 

    Kong, Jian Feng (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    Transport phenomena in solids -- such as energy and charge flows in response to external fields -- is a subject of fundamental interest for solid state physics. Carrier transport exhibits a wide variety of intriguing and ...
