Background: Octupole-deformed nuclei, such as that of $^{225}$Ra, are expected to amplify observable atomic electric dipole moments (EDMs) that arise from time-reversal and parity-violating interactions in the nuclear medium. In 2015, we reported the first "proof-of-principle" measurement of the $^{225}$Ra atomic EDM. Purpose: This work reports on the first of several experimental upgrades to improve the statistical sensitivity of our $^{225}$Ra EDM measurements by orders of magnitude and evaluates systematic effects that contribute to current and future levels of experimental sensitivity.

We discuss the $E1$ and $M1$ spontaneous decay rates of the an emitter residing inside of a real cavity carved out of a vast, uniform, homogenous, isotropic, linear, lossless, dispersionless, and continuous medium. The ratio of the medium rate to vacuum rate is given by $\Gamma_m/\Gamma_0 = [G(u)]^2 n^3 / u$, where $G(u) = 3u/(2u+1)$ is the local field correction factor, $n = \sqrt{\epsilon\mu/(\epsilon_0\mu_0)}$ is the index of refraction of the medium, $\epsilon(\epsilon_0)$ is the electric permitivity of the medium (vacuum), $\mu(\mu_0)$ is the magnetic permeability of the medium (vacuum), and $u = \epsilon/\epsilon_0$ for $E1$ transitions or $u = \mu_0/\mu$ for $M1$ transitions.

We present the development of high-performance polarized $^3\mathrm{He}$ targets for use in electron scattering experiments that utilize the technique of alkali-hybrid spin-exchange optical pumping. We include data obtained during the characterization of 24 separate target cells, each of which was constructed while preparing for one of four experiments at Jefferson Laboratory in Newport News, Virginia. The results presented here document dramatic improvement in the performance of polarized $^3\mathrm{He}$ targets, as well as the target properties and operating parameters that made those improvements possible.
