  • Chu, Yiwen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    We demonstrate a procedure for cooling, trapping, and transferring rubidium atoms into a hollow core photonic band gap fiber. The atoms are first collected in a magneto-optical trap (MOT) and then cooled using polarization ...
  • Walk, John Reel, Jr (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Using a spatially-resolving x-ray spectrometer system, toroidal impurity rotation in Alcator C-Mod plasmas was measured. The propagation of the rotational velocity from the edge to the core of the plasma column was measured ...
  • McEwen, Heather K. (Heather Kristine), 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    The Magellan Instant Camera (MagIC) is an optical CCD camera that was built at MIT and is currently used at Las Campanas Observatory (LCO) in La Serena, Chile. It is designed to be both simple and efficient with minimal ...
  • Savcheva, Antonia Stefanova (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    We consider geometrically thin accretion disks around millisecond X-ray pulsars. We start with the Shakura-Sunyaev thin disk model as a basis and modify the disk equations with a magnetic torque from the central neutron ...
  • Seeluangsawat, Paisa, 1980- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
  • Piso, Ana-Maria (Ana-Maria Adriana) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    We study the magnetic field and the planet-star interactions of super Earths, extrasolar planets with masses between 1 and 10 times the mass of the Earth. We first present a model of the magnetic field of a super Earth, ...
  • Goldberg, Brian, 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
  • Schwartz, Benjamin M. (Benjamin Matthew) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    The human body is composed primarily of dielectric tissue with spatially varying permittivity and conductivity. Traditional MRI does not measure these properties. Instead, the conductivity of the patient is a nuisance, ...
  • Silva, James B. (James Brian) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The importance of heavy stable charged (HSCP) particles lies in the exploration of extensions to the standard model. Extensions of the standard model attempt to solve current problems in the standard model such as the ...
  • Kardon, Brian (Brian Michael) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    A rectangular array of three-dimensional Mach probes is constructed and installed in the plasma vessel of the Versatile Toroidal Facility (VTF) at MIT in order to measure ion flow velocity on the cross section of the VTF. ...
  • Whitney, John Peter, 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    In this thesis work, I designed, fabricated, and calibrated, a radio-frequency magnetic probe, subsequently used to measure magnetic turbulance in the reconnecting plasmas of the Versatile Toroidal Facility (VTF). Reconnecting ...
  • Zimmerman, Eric D. (Eric Daniel) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
  • Whitehead, Andrew Patrick (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Introduction: Superconductivity is one of those subjects in physics that is as captivating theoretically as it is experimentally interesting. The dual driving force of commercial demand for high-temperature superconductors ...
  • Wolfe, Ian C (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    CF4 gas is useful in many applications, especially as a drift gas in particle detection chambers. In order to make accurate measurements of incident particles the properties of the drift gas must be well understood. An ...
  • Lachenmyer, Nathan S. (Nathan Scott) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Ion traps provide an excellent tool for controlling and observing the state of a single trapped ion. For this reason, ion traps have been proposed as a possible system for large-scale quantum computation. However, many ...
  • Galiano, Kevin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Layered copper/niobium (Cu/Nb) composites with small layer widths contain a high area per unit volume of solid-state interfaces. Interfaces have their own elasticity tensor, which affects the elastic properties of the ...
  • Pasterski, Sabrina Gonzalez (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This study evaluates the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment's ability to characterize Higgs self-coupling through the ... channel. The effective cross-section for detecting ... events is computed by finding the fraction ...
  • Mehta, Ankur, 1983- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    With the ever-increasing ubiquity of mobile consumer electronic devices comes the rising demand for portable electric power. Current battery technology gives a very modest energy return per weight or volume. Hydrocarbons ...
  • Aude, Diana Prado Lopes (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    This thesis develops a simulation tool that can be used in conjunction with commercially available electromagnetic simulators to model the behavior of superconductors over a wide range of frequencies. This simulation method ...
  • Kamenetska, Masha (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    In this thesis, we investigate the effect of dark matter distribution in the galaxy on the positron spectrum on earth. We wrote code to simulate two district dark matter distribution functions as well as the annihilations ...
