class projects
In this Wintersession class, students learned to make small soldered electronic circuits from copper-covered boards or copper film, either for their research or just for fun, using the Modela mill and the vinyl cutter...


Figure 2: Inner structure of the skyrmion in the (x, z) plane
Topological excitations keep fascinating physicists since many decades. While individual vortices and solitons emerge and have been observed in many areas of physics, their most intriguing higher dimensional topological relatives, skyrmions...


Figure 3: Protocol for quantum-enhanced nuclear spin imaging
Nuclear spin imaging at the atomic level is essential for the understanding of fundamental biological phenomena and for applications such as drug discovery. The advent of novel nanoscale sensors promises to achieve the long-standing goal of single-protein...

Graduate student Aaron Meisner and Prof. Douglas Finkbeiner apply the Finkbeiner et al. two-component thermal dust emission model to the Planck High Frequency Instrument maps...


Kim Bernard with 'Bardo State'
Kim Bernard, visiting Artist-in-Residence in the Physics Department, has set up a studio in SciBox 302 for the spring semester. She will be working with students in the Physics 15a lab to integrate kinetic art making into existing and new lab projects as natural extensions of the projects themselves.


Henry is a sophomore Physics concentrator; Sabrina is a graduate student in the Harvard Center for the Fundamental Laws of Nature; Tony graduated from our department with a PhD in astrophysics in 2013...


Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provide non-invasive information about multiple nuclear species in bulk matter, with wide-ranging applications...


The silicon-vacancy (SiV‾) color center in diamond has attracted attention because of its unique optical properties. It exhibits spectral stability and indistinguishability that facilitate efficient generation of photons...


Single-crystal diamond, with its unique optical, mechanical and thermal properties, has emerged as a promising material with applications in classical and quantum optics. However, the lack of heteroepitaxial growth...



Andromeda galaxy
Prof. Lisa Randall and postdoc Jakub Scholtz investigate a possible explanation for the planar distribution of satellite dwarf galaxies with high dark matter content...
