Two-component Fermi gases with imbalanced spin populations feature mismatched Fermi surfaces which can lead to a range of novel behaviours. Here, we produce and study spin-imbalanced Fermi gases following a quench which removes a fraction of the atoms in one spin state, from an initially balanced spin-mixture. We apply this approach to harmonically trapped lithium-6 gases and measure the ensuing dynamics as the atoms approach equilibrium. Furthermore, we present our progress towards studies of the contact parameter in spin-imbalanced Fermi gases using Bragg spectroscopy.
