Measurement of the 2S1/2, f = 0 2P1/2, f = 1 Transition in Atomic Hydrogen
A high-precision measurement of the transition frequency between the 2S_1/2, f=0 and 2P_1/2, f=1 states in atomic hydrogen is presented. The interval is measured by using a fast beam of hydrogen atoms and a novel method ...
Trends in Geometry and Energy of Metal and Metal Oxide Clusters Calculated by Density Functional Theory
We have studied the structural and electronic properties for different groups of atomic clusters by doing a global search on the potential energy surface using a modified version of the Tabu search in descriptor space ...
Development and Characterization of Auto-Locked Laser Systems and Applications to Photon Echo Lifetime Measurements
We have developed and characterized a new class of vacuum-sealed, auto-locking diode laser systems with an auto-locking controller that allows these instruments to be operated with greater ease and control at desired ...
Exact Gate Decompositions for Photonic Quantum Computers
The purpose of this work is to examine the use of decompositions on a continuous-variable quantum computer by both implementing and examining known methods, as well as to expand on them by developing my own. I detail the ...
The Strong Isospin-Breaking Correction to the Leading-Order Hadronic Vacuum Polarisation Contribution to the Anomalous Magnetic Moment of the Muon
The contribution of strong isospin-breaking (SIB) effects to the value of the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon is studied using the leading-order SIB component of the photon vacuum polarisation function, calculated ...
Resolving the Stellar Populations of Clumpy Star-Forming Galaxies Using Finite Resolution Deconvolution
Understanding the physical details of when and where stars form within galaxies remains as one of the key goals in extragalactic astronomy. Kiloparsec-scale, star-forming structures found in distant, irregular galaxies are ...
