  • Lang, Ruitian (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In this thesis, I study propagation of gravitons in the shock wave geometry in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence, with the goal to uncover some constraint on the supergravity action in the AdS space. In studying ...
  • Jergović, Ilija, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Williams, Mobolaji (Mobolaji O.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis studies the decay of a pseudo-goldstino to a gravitino plus a photon in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. The foundational premise of this decay process is that there are two independent sectors of ...
  • Fernandes, Louis Edward (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    We investigate the use of an Amptek Cool-X X-ray Generator for an instructional tool in the physics of x-rays, as well as a source for x-rays for crystal diffraction experiments. The x-ray source is a solid-state two-phase ...
  • Richter, Burton, 1931- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1952)
  • Shah, Nisha N (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1986)
  • Kononov, Alina (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Through this thesis, heterostructures composed of a thin layer of hexagonal boron nitride atop a monolayer of molybdenum disulfide were fabricated with the goal of measuring quantum capacitance and probing the transition ...
  • Kim, Isaac H. (Isaac Hyun) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Ever since the birth of the first quantum error correcting code, many error correcting techniques and formalism has been constructed so far. Among those, generating a quantum code on a locally planar geometry have lead to ...
  • Sachdev, Subir (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1982)
  • Tassev, Svetlin Valentinov (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Using canonical quantization we show that the spectrum of the scalar cosmological fluctuations as calculated until now is not correct. We derive the correct expression for the spectrum, and show that our correct treatment ...
  • Ganguli, Surya, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
    We study the Wigner phase space formulation of quantum mechanics and compare it to the Hamiltonian picture of classical mechanics. In this comparison we focus on the differences in initial conditions available to each ...
  • Flynn, Michael O (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    We compute the non-contact friction force induced between two isotropic planar dielectric slabs which obey a plasma model dielectric function using scalar electromagnetism. All computations are carried out at zero temperature. ...
  • 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 ...
  • Pickrell, M. M. (Mark Manley) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1976)
  • 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 ...
