  • Werner, Andrew Thompson, 1981- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    A self-triggering readout for a time projection chamber (TPC) is presented, with applications to novel forms of data acquisition for high energy physics application. The construction and initial testing of the readout ...
  • Fisher, Zachary (Zachary Kenneth) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    In this thesis, I present experimental results demonstrating the characterization of a planar Paul trap. I discuss the theory of ion trapping and analyze the voltages required for shuttling. Next, the characteristics of a ...
  • Wissner-Gross, Zachary Daniel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Rapid and accurate detection of airborne micro-particles is currently an important problem in national security. One approach to such detection, bioaerosol mass spectrometry (BAMS), is currently under development at Lawrence ...
  • Harrington, Kathleen M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The GEANT4 physics simulation program is known to have errors in how hadronic interactions are implemented. This has the potential to cause errors in the Monte Carlos used to determine the expected neutron backgrounds in ...
  • Howe, Ethan (Ethan Gabriel Grief) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Introduction: In this paper, I will be assessing the capabilities of the Neutral Meson Spectrometer (NMS) detector in a planned experiment at the High Intensity Gamma Source at Duke University. I will review the relevant ...
  • Venkatachalam, Vivek (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    One of the largest problems in scanning tunneling microscopy design is noise control. It is the burden of the designer to determine if money should be used to build a floating room for vibration isolation or for top-of-the-line ...
  • Solis Ortíz, Angel Roberto (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In this thesis we asses the capabilities of the Crystal Box detector and evaluate its advantages over the Neutral Meson Spectrometer (NMS) detector in a planned experiment at the High Intensity Gamma Source (HI[gamma]S) ...
  • Franke, Arthur James (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In this thesis, I carried out a simulation study to characterize the measurement of bottom quark flow in relativistic Pb+Pb collisions using the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment. The Hydjet event generator is used to produce ...
  • Gill, Jay S. (Jay Singh) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This thesis presents a series of simulations of quantum computations using the adiabatic algorithm. The goal is to explore the effect of error, using a perturbative approach that models 1-local errors to the Hamiltonian ...
  • Mortonson, Michael J. (Michael John), 1983- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    We examine the effect that the shape of the source brightness profile has on the magnitude fluctuations of images in lens systems due to microlensing. We do this by convolving a variety of accretion disk models (including ...
  • Marks, Lawrence James (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1950)
  • Falkenbach, Jeffrey (Jeffrey C.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    In the following paper, I study the Dirac equation in curved spacetime and solve this equation in two-dimensional spacetime backgrounds discovered by Jackiw et al[4], [5]. I will first discuss flat spacetime and introduce ...
  • Scolnic, Daniel (Daniel M.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The recombination of hydrogen at z ~ 800 - 1800 induces distortions to the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) spectrum. We present a careful calculation and analysis of all of the main transitions occurring during this ...
  • Rado, George T. (George Tibor), 1917- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1939)
  • McEntee, Connor W (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    We present a brief review of the AdS/CFT correspondence and the progress made toward building a realistic gravity/gauge theory duality for a non-relativistic conformal field theory. In particular, we highlight many of the ...
  • Zhao, Fen, 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    In this thesis, we present a quantum walk algorithm for spatial search of a periodic lattice. Our algorithm is a variation of the Childs and Goldstone algorithm for spatial search, but begins in a randomly selected local ...
  • Browne, Donald (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1918)
  • Changala, P. Bryan (Peter Bryan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis consists of parallel experimental and theoretical studies of the rovibrational structure and dynamics of the Si state of acetylene, C2H2 . This small molecule is a prototypical system for the study of cis-trans ...
  • Schwab, Adele Ann (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    This project aims to reduce measurement uncertainty in atomic clocks by squeezing the collective spin of atoms. Spin-squeezing reduces noise below the standard quantum limit where precision scales as 1/ [square root of] ...
  • Chonde, Daniel Burje (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This paper examines a new technique for measuring gas composition through the use of a spirometer. A spirometer is high precision pressure transducer which measures the speed of sound in a gas through the emission and ...
