  • 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 ...
  • Farrell, Matthew W (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Quantum computation offers the promise of speeding up many calculations that are intractable on classical computers, including but not limited to factoring and the simulation of quantum mechanical systems. Quantum computation ...
  • Hunter-Jones, Nicholas R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) attempts to detect ripples in the curvature of spacetime using two large scale interferometers. These detectors are several kilometer long Michelson interferometers ...
  • Benjamin, Nathan S (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The fluid/gravity correspondence describes an map from relativistic fluid dynamics to general relativity in an anti de Sitter (AdS) background in one more dimension. This is a specific example of a more general principle ...
  • Finck, Aaron David Kiyoshi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Recent technological advances have allowed for the construction of small (on the order of 100-1000 nm) systems of confined electrons called quantum dots. Often kept within semiconductor heterostructures, these systems are ...
  • Pepper, Brian Jeffrey (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this thesis, I explored the evolution and dynamics of multiple quantum coherences in a quasi-iD crystal lattice, Fluorapatite (FAp), through the use of NMR. In particular I focused on the system with chains aligned with ...
  • Perko, Ashley Nicole (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    21 cm tomography has the potential to become the most powerful cosmological probe yet. The Omniscope is a novel radio telescope being built to take advantage of this signal. This thesis describes my work on integrating, ...
  • Randeria, Mallika (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Phosphorus doped silicon is a prime candidate for spin based qubits. We plan to investigate a novel hybrid technique that combines the advantages of spin selective optical excitations with that of electrical readout ...
  • Kelley, David Bruce, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Craig Hogan recently proposed a "quantum holographic" noise that could potentially raise the expected noise floor for some current and upcoming high precision interferometers. Rainer Weiss et al. have designed an experiment ...
