I have been very lucky to work on my Ph.D. surrounded by such a large group of talented
and kind people. It is an understatement to say that the work presented in this thesis would
not have been possible without them. I am not sure their help and contributions can be
First of all, I would like to thank my advisor, Alessandra Lanzara, for all that she does
for our group. I consider myself very lucky to have joined her group where she has provided
me a vast amount of trust and patience. She has allowed me to learn, make mistakes, and
develop these projects as I saw fit. The long (and ongoing!) projects I have worked on have
certainly required her patience and constant commitment to see them through, which she
has always generously supplied. Somehow she is able to know when to step back and let
things happen, and when to step in and give much appreciated guidance and encouragement.
I'd like to thank Alessandra for the support, advice, and training I needed to complete this
Ph.D., and additionally for always looking out for our best interests in the group, in science
I owe many special thanks to Zahid Hussain. Leading the spin-TOF project, he has
brought together a great team of experts to help make it happen and has always provided
the help, direction, and funds required to push it forwards. This project is really due to his
scientific creativity, energy, and leadership. I have been very lucky to get to work with him.
Like Alessandra, he placed a large amount of trust in both the project and me, and I am
indebted to him for both his patience and mentorship. Somehow he always makes time for
my questions and updates (both good and bad), even when I track him down in his office
late on Friday afternoons.
Andreas Schmid has been of particular help in many ways. Not only did he teach me
an incredible amount of experimental science technique in my first years in his lab, he
has continued to be a reliable source of advice and eerily correct intuition about almost
anything. Leader of the SPLEEM lab, he is also the source of much of the spin-polarimeter
