Thomas Mittiga

Wonderfest Science Envoy

Thomas Mittiga was annealed in the great furnaces of New York. This specimen exhibits a peculiar luster and versatility matched by the eclectic physics at the cusp of Atomic and Condensed Matter. It usually resides on the diamond nano-magnetometry experiment in UC Berkeley’s Yao Laboratory. Myriad applications outside the lab include swing dance, urban exploration, reading, and rock climbing. Many thanks to UC Berkeley Prof. Holger Müller, who recognized the strong coupling potential to the Science Envoy Program.
