(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 ...
(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 ...
