Medical implants mimic the softness of human tissue by mixing liquids such oil with long silicone polymers to create a squishy, wet gel. While implants have improved dramatically over the years, there is still a chance of the liquid leaking, which can be painful and sometimes dangerous. Now, led by David Weitz, a team of polymer physicists and chemists has developed a way...


Prof. Ronald Walsworth
Quantum diamond microscopes are one of Ron Walsworth's passions. He is a physicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CFA) and in Harvard's physics department...


Prof. Andrew Strominger

The central-spin problem is a widely studied model of quantum decoherence. Dynamic nuclear polarization occurs in central-spin systems when electronic angular momentum is transferred to nuclear spins and is exploited in quantum information processing for coherent spin manipulation...


Electron microscopy is a powerful technique for taking snapshots of particles or images at near-atomic resolution. An international group of scientists studied free-floating platinum nanoparticles using electron microscopy and liquid cells...


Astronomy grad student Gregory Green, Ph.D. '12 Edward Schlafly, Prof. Douglas Finkbeiner, and colleagues from Max-Planck-Institut (Heidelberg), Université de Strasbourg, GMTO Corporation, U. Durham, U. Hawaii at Manoa, and Princeton, published a 3D map of interstellar dust reddening...


In Particular, a new ATLAS podcast by Harvard Physics alumnae Tova Holmes '11 and Laura Jeanty Ph.D. '13, is about physics and the process of discovering physics at the high energy frontier.


Norman Yao
Norman Yao (PhD 2014) has been awarded the 2015 Prize for Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Research in Atomic, Molecular or Optical Physics (the DAMOP Thesis Prize) for his PhD thesis...
