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...


Newsletter 2014 cover
The new publication, which is a collaboration between Harvard Physics faculty, students, and staff, will be issued annually.

The nature of the pseudogap regime of cuprate superconductors at low hole density remains unresolved. It has a number of seemingly distinct experimental signatures: a suppression of the paramagnetic spin susceptibility at high temperatures, low-energy electronic excitations that extend over arcs in the Brillouin zone...

A recent 'Editor's Suggested' article in Physical Review A is by members of Demler's research group Fabian Grusdt, Aditya Shashi, and Dmitry Abanin. Together with Prof. Demler, they consider a single-impurity atom confined to an optical lattice and immersed in a homogeneous Bose-Einstein condensate...
