Prof. Markus Greiner and members of his lab test a new technique for imaging of individual fermionic lithium atoms in a single layer of a 3D optical lattice. To preserve the density distribution during fluorescence imaging...


The Physics Department is delighted to announce the promotion of Matthew Schwartz to Professor of Physics with tenure. Matt received his B.A. in Mathematics and Biophysics and M.A. in Mathematics from University of Pennsylvania in 1998 and Ph.D. from Princeton in 2003. After doing postdoctoral work at Berkeley and at Johns Hopkins, he joined Harvard as an Assistant Professor in 2008.
