  • Shah, Nisha N (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1986)
  • Jin, Donghyun (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    As Si CMOS approaches the end of the roadmap, finding a new transistor technology that allows the extension of Moore's law has become a technical problem of great significance. Among the various candidates, III-V-based ...
  • Kononov, Alina (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Through this thesis, heterostructures composed of a thin layer of hexagonal boron nitride atop a monolayer of molybdenum disulfide were fabricated with the goal of measuring quantum capacitance and probing the transition ...
  • Wong, Bryan Matthew, 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Three special topics in the field of molecular spectroscopy are investigated using a variety of computational techniques. First, large-amplitude vibrational motions on ground-state singlet (S0) potential energy surfaces ...
  • Kryvohuz, Maksym (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this thesis, theoretical analysis of correspondence between classical and quantum dynamics is studied in the context of response theory. Thesis discusses the mathematical origin of time-divergence of classical response ...
  • Kim, Isaac H. (Isaac Hyun) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Ever since the birth of the first quantum error correcting code, many error correcting techniques and formalism has been constructed so far. Among those, generating a quantum code on a locally planar geometry have lead to ...
  • Jo, Gyu-Boong (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    In this thesis, two sets of experimental studies in bosonic and fermionic gases are described. In the first part of the thesis, itinerant ferromagnetism was studied in a strongly interacting Fermi gas of ultracold atoms. ...
  • Jordan, Stephen Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The quantum circuit model is the most widely used model of quantum computation. It provides both a framework for formulating quantum algorithms and an architecture for the physical construction of quantum computers. However, ...
  • Hirose, Masashi, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The precise control of a system which behaves according to the principles of quantum mechanics is an essential task in order to fully harness the unique properties of quantum mechanics, such as superposition and entanglement, ...
  • Liu, Zi-Wen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis addresses two topics in quantum information theory. The first topic is quantum correlations and quantum resource theory. The second is quantum communication theory. The first part summarizes an ongoing work ...
  • Wu, Dennis M. (Dennis Meng-Jiao) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    A new thermal to electric conversion scheme based on an excitation transfer and tunneling mechanism is studied theoretically. Coulomb coupling dominates when the hot side and the cold side are very close. Two important ...
  • Zimmer, John P. (John Philip) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Quantum dot-based fluorescent probes were synthesized and applied to biological imaging in two distinct size regimes: (1) 100-1000 nm and (2) < 10 nm in diameter. The larger diameter range was accessed by doping CdSe/ZnS ...
  • Arango, Alexi Cosmos, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    This thesis presents a new device architecture for photodetectors utilizing colloidally grown quantum dots as the principle photo-active component. We implement a thin film of cadmium selenide (CdSe) quantum dot sensitizers, ...
  • Cheng, Yuan-Chung, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In this thesis, we develop analytical models for quantum systems and perform theoretical investigations on several dynamical processes in condensed phases. First, we study charge-carrier mobilities in organic molecular ...
  • Wu, Tony Chang-Chi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Using singlet fission in a photovoltaic cell, the theoretical energy conversion efficiency limit is larger than the Shockley-Queisser limit due to two excitons produced with one incident photon. In a singlet fission material, ...
  • Sachdev, Subir (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1982)
  • Aung, Joe, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
  • Tassev, Svetlin Valentinov (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Using canonical quantization we show that the spectrum of the scalar cosmological fluctuations as calculated until now is not correct. We derive the correct expression for the spectrum, and show that our correct treatment ...
  • Weinstein, Yaakov Shmuel, 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    In this thesis I study control of quantum systems while implementing complex quantum operations. Through experimental implementations of such operations, I test the accuracy of control and provide methods for identifying ...
  • Wang, Shannon Xuanyue (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Quantum information science promises a host of new and useful applications in communication, simulation, and computational algorithms. Trapped atomic ions are one of the leading physical systems with potential to implement ...
