  • Lin, Ziliang (Ziliang Carter) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Quantum simulations are the use of well controlled many-body quantum systems to simulate and solve other many-body quantum systems that are not understood. This thesis describes theoretical proposals and experimental ...
  • Mello, Olivia L (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this thesis we present an optical and electronic setup that is capable of performing coherent state tomography. We fully characterize it in order to verify whether or not it will be capable to perform non-demolition ...
  • Schneider, Scott (Scott David), 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
  • Kimchi, Itamar (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    We investigate how the requirement that organic chemistry be possible constrains the values of the quark masses. Specifically, we choose a slice through the parameter space of the Standard Model in which quark masses vary ...
  • Miller, Adam A. (Adam Andrew) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    We present results on the evolution of Ly[alpha] absorption at low redshift, and the first systematic search for Si II absorption systems in the low redshift IGM. Our sample consists of 832 Ly[alpha] absorbers from 328 ...
  • Pelc, Jason, 1984- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    We report on experimental observation of radiation-pressure induced effects in a high-power optical cavity. These effects play an important role in next generation gravitational wave detectors, as well as quantum non-demolition ...
  • Smith, Warren Douglas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1984)
  • Yu, Yichao (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis presents our work on developing and improving the techniques of trapping and cooling an ultra-cold cloud of Lithium-7 atoms and the realization of the Bose- Einstein condensate as a first step to study quantum ...
  • Fedus, William Bradley (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Astrophysical evidence indicates that 23% of our universe's energy density is in the form of nonluminous, nonbaryonic matter referred to as dark matter. One theoretically appealing dark matter candidate is the Weakly ...
  • Greenwood, Ross Norman (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    In this thesis, I investigated the extent to which the inclusion of multiple scalar fields in models of Higgs inflation produces observable departures from the single field case. I designed simulations to numerically solve ...
  • Cutler, Monarch L (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1939)
  • Gu, Jianwen Wendy, 1981- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
  • Stacey, Blake (Blake C.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    We investigate the classic "inverse problem" of extracting collision and scattering cross sections from measurements of electron swarm behavior. A Monte Carlo technique for simulating electron motion through a gas of ...
  • Phan, Trung Van (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Quantum field theory is the most well-developed tool in theoretical physics to study about the dynamics at microscopic scales, with particles and quantum behaviors. In this thesis I'll review about the construction of ...
  • Gonzalez, Edgar Raul, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    We present the results of five Chandra observations of the normal galaxy NGC 3877. A total of 27 X-ray sources are detected, including SN 1998S. We find 15 sources to be variable during the 646-day period covered by the ...
  • Prouty. Jeffrey C (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    We continue the work of Abbate et al. in [1], in which a factorization formula for the thrust distribution in electron-positron collisions was developed in the framework of soft-collinear effective theory. We extend the ...
  • Shi, Yeming (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    We investigate the robustness with respect to the introduction of nonconformality of five properties of strongly coupled plasmas that have been calculated in K = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills (SYM) theory at nonzero temperature, ...
  • Chao, Adam (Adam C.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this series of experiments, we add salt to a photoresist developer and observe the effect on photoresist contrast. In order to measure contrast, we designed an anti-reflection coating stack to reduce reflections between ...
  • Zimmermann, Michelle (Michelle Anne) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The hole-doped cuprate Bi ... is doped with lead to the solubility limit of x = 0.38 and studied using STM/STS in the overdoped regime where Tc < 2K. Despite the high lead content, residual supermodulations are observed ...
  • Ramazanoğlu, Fethï Mübïn (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    We present the P-matrix, an alternative method to parameterize the S-matrix, which is particularly useful for low energy meson-meson scattering. We discuss its basic properties and use it to analyze the isospin 0 and 2 ...
