  • Shah, Nisha N (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1986)
  • 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 ...
  • 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, ...
  • Sachdev, Subir (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1982)
  • 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 ...
  • Cheuk, Lawrence W (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    This thesis describes experiments on ultracold fermionic atoms, and can be divided into two areas. The first concerns spin-orbit coupling; the second concerns quantum gas microscopy. With the use of Raman transitions, ID ...
  • 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 ...
  • Lifschytz, Gilad (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Childs, Andrew MacGregor, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Quantum mechanical computers can solve certain problems asymptotically faster than any classical computing device. Several fast quantum algorithms are known, but the nature of quantum speedup is not well understood, and ...
  • Lantz, Brian Thomas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Nandkishore, Rahul (Rahul Mahajan ) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Two dimensional electron systems (2DES) provide a uniquely promising avenue for investigation of many body physics. Graphene constitutes a new and unusual 2DES, which may give rise to unexpected collective phenomena. ...
  • Ganguli, Surya, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
    We study the Wigner phase space formulation of quantum mechanics and compare it to the Hamiltonian picture of classical mechanics. In this comparison we focus on the differences in initial conditions available to each ...
  • Lutomirski, Andrew (Andrew Michael) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This thesis covers two unrelated topics. The first part of my thesis is about quantum money, a cryptographic protocol in which a mint can generate a quantum state that no one can copy. In public-key quantum money, anyone ...
  • Corbitt, Thomas Randall (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In recent years, a variety of mechanical systems have been approaching quantum limits to their sensitivity of continuous position measurements imposed by the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. Most notably, gravitational ...
  • Dwyer, Sheila E. (Sheila Elizabeth) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Direct detection of gravitational waves will require earth based detectors to measure strains of the order 10-21, at frequencies of 100 Hz, a sensitivity that has been accomplished with the initial generation of LIGO ...
  • Flynn, Michael O (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    We compute the non-contact friction force induced between two isotropic planar dielectric slabs which obey a plasma model dielectric function using scalar electromagnetism. All computations are carried out at zero temperature. ...
  • Peyronel, Thibault (Thibault Michel Max) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The fundamental properties of light derive from its constituent particles, photons, which are massless and do no interact with each other. The realization of interactions between photons could enable a wide variety of ...
  • Zeng, Bei, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The discovery of quantum error-correcting codes (QECCs) and the theory of fault-tolerant quantum computation (FTQC) have greatly improved the long-term prospects for quantum communication and computation technology. ...
