  • 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 ...
  • Lopez, Laura Ann, 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    We test the physical model of the relativistic jets in the galactic X-ray binary SS 433 that was proposed by Marshall et al. 2002 (Paper I) using additional observations from the Chandra High Energy Transmission Grating ...
  • Stephens, R. Michael (Robert Michael) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Chien, Peter, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Tolley, Emma Elizabeth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    I implemented event reconstruction of a Monte Carlo simulation using neural networks. The OLYMPUS Collaboration is using a Monte Carlo simulation of the OLYMPUS particle detector to evaluate systematics and reconstruct ...
  • Newberg, Lee Aaron (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1986)
  • Harrington, Nicholas Lee (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The OLYMPUS experiment seeks to measure the ratio of the cross sections for e--p and e+-p scattering in order to determine the magnitude of two photon interactions in lepton nucleon scattering. Measuring this observable ...
  • Su, Yi-Han, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this research, the manipulation of colloidal systems composed of superparamagnetic particles in water is studied by a simulation method. In response to an external magnetic field, the dipoles drive the beads to self-assemble ...
  • Mazenc, Edward A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Cosmic inflation posits that the universe underwent a period of exponential expansion, driven by one or several quantum fields, shortly after the Big Bang. Renormalization requires the fields be non-minimally coupled to ...
  • Schrieffer, J. R. (John Robert), 1931- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1953)
  • Melachrinos, Constantinos (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The startup of the Large Hadron Collider will allow scientists to probe energy scales that existed picoseconds after the Big Bang. Monte Carlo samples of many Standard Model processes are produced to simulate the conditions ...
  • Childress, Michael J (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    In this paper we discuss the construction of a narrow frequency-band laser with optical feedback. We use a distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) laser diode centered at the cesium D₂ transition wavelength, [gamma] = 852 nm. ...
  • Ohlson, Alice Elisabeth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Quasielastic scattering and deuteron breakup in the 200 MeV region is studied by impinging a pulsed neutron beam on a deuterium target at the Weapons Neutron Research facility at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center. The ...
  • Setiawan, Widagdo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In the summer of 2004, the BEC 2 lab of Wolfgang Ketterle's group at MIT started a new research direction of studying degenerate fermionic Lithium atoms in optical lattices. The major contributions to the new experimental ...
  • Sheffler, Ryan Taylor (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In this thesis we designed and began the fabrication of three new solid state sensors for the detection of DNA hybridization through electrical measurements. The first sensor is a surface acoustic wave device with tapered ...
  • Schwab, Josiah (Josiah W.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    We use a sample of 53 elliptical galaxies which are lensing background emission-line galaxies and have been observed by the SLACS collaboration using HST and SDSS to place constraints on the post-Newtonian parameter 7 and ...
  • Perepelitsa, Dennis V (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Measurements of (n, xnʹ[gamma]) reactions in Cu are important for understanding neutroninduced background for certain underground double beta decay experiments. Neutroninduced gammas are a contribution to background for ...
