  • Abudayyeh, Omar 0 (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Many biomarker-based diagnostics have poor predictive value because of their dependence on naturally occurring endogenous biomolecules to indicate disease. This work presents a diagnostic platform that uses nanoparticles ...
  • Payne, Jeffrey C. (Jeffrey Christopher), 1981- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    The advancement of the fabrication of a one-dimensional photonic crystal without time-reversal and space-inversion symmetries was pursued. Theoretical studies predict that such a system would exhibit unusual optical ...
  • Harris, Todd J (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Nature has evolved elegant strategies to temporally and spatially control protein activity, including the synthesis of subunits that require assembly for function, the incorporation of pro-domains that require cleavage for ...
  • Qiu, Wenjun (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis, we will theoretically explore three nanophotonics phenomena which enable strong light-matter interaction. The first phenomenon is plasmonic resonance, where the surface plasmon mode at metal and dielectric ...
  • Barbero, Roberto Juan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This work investigates the roles that peptides play in the fields of antimicrobials, surface functionalization, carbon capture, and biocatalysis. The results demonstrate that peptides, sometimes dismissed for their lack ...
  • Chen, Grace Dongqing (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The efficient isolation of specific bioparticles in lab-on-a-chip platforms is important for many applications in clinical diagnostics and biomedical research. The majority of microfluidic devices designed for specific ...
  • Cohen-Tanugi, David H. (David Henri Michaël) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    With conventional water sources in short and decreasing availability, new technologies for water supply have a crucial role to play in addressing the world's clean water needs in the 21st century. In this thesis, we examine ...
  • Tan, Bertha (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The crude oil supply crisis the world is facing today along with the disastrous global warming caused primarily as a result the green house gases, has heightened the need for an eco-friendly and renewable energy technology. ...
  • Khademhosseini, Ali (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Micro- and nanofabrication approaches have dramatically changed our society through their use in microelectronics and telecommunication industries. These engineering tools are also useful for many biological applications ...
  • Yang, Ronggui, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    When the device or structure characteristic length scales are comparable to the mean free path and wavelength of energy carriers (electrons, photons, phonons, and molecules) or the time of interest is on the same order as ...
  • Vandiver, Jennifer M. (Jennifer McKeehan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    There is a significant need for improved synthetic materials as orthopedic implants to replace human bone lost and damaged due to disease or injury. Certain ceramics, such as hydroxyapatite (HA), have the special property ...
  • Guo, Alex (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    As modem transistors continue to scale down in size, conventional Si CMOS is reaching its physical limits and alternative technologies are needed to extend Moore's law. Among different candidates, MOSFETs with a III-V ...
  • Forrest, Eric Christopher (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Surface effects on pool boiling heat transfer and the critical heat flux are well documented but poorly understood. This study investigates the pool boiling characteristics of various fluids, and demonstrates that surface ...
  • Soumyanarayanan, Anjan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The advent of a broad class of two-dimensional (2D) electronic materials has provided avenues to create and study designer electronic quantum phases. The coexistence of superconductivity, magnetism, density waves, and other ...
  • Macias, Celia Edith, 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Vascular grafts are prosthetic tubes that serve as artificial replacements for damaged blood vessels. Poly(ethylene-terephthalate), PET, has been successfully used in large diameter grafts; however, small caliber grafts ...
  • Eusner, Thor (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    During the chemical-mechanical polishing (CMP) process, a critical step in the manufacture of ultra-large-scale integrated (ULSI) semiconductor devices, undesirable nano-scale scratches are formed on the surfaces being ...
  • Evans, Matthew Hiram (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Nanoscale structures present both unique physics and unique theoretical challenges. Atomic-scale simulations can find novel nanostructures with desirable properties, but the search can be difficult if the wide range of ...
  • Wahab, Adam Joseph (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The development of an Autonomous Nano-stepping Tool (ANT) system is presented. Each ANT is a small, tripodal, robotic instrument capable of untethered precision motion within a quasi-three-dimensional workspace of arbitrary ...
  • Ahn, Edward Sun, 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    Historically, using suitable mechanical replacements for bone has been a priority in designing permanent, load-bearing orthopedic implants. As a result, the biomaterials used in these implants have been largely limited to ...
  • Jean, Joel, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis introduces a novel ordered bulk heterojunction architecture for colloidal quantum dot (QD) solar cells. Quantum dots are solution-processed nanocrystals whose tunable bandgap energies make them a promising ...
