  • Wilt, Brian A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In this thesis, I studied the effectiveness of a method for measuring the charged multiplicity of proton-proton collisions in the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at LHC energies ... This technique involves counting ...
  • Boddy, Kimberly K (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Particle tracking software has been developed to measure the energy of protons scattered in the breakup process d(n, np)n. The nd breakup experiment is performed at the Weapons Neutron Research facilities at Los Alamos ...
  • Klebanov, Igor (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1982)
  • Thanathibodee, Thanawuth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    We report the abundance analysis of the metal-poor halo star HE 2324-0215 for 22 neutron-capture elements and 14 light elements with Z < 30. The stellar parameters are [Fe/H] = -3.05 ± 0.17, Teff = 4477 K, Vt = 2.70 kms-1 ...
  • Xu, Weishuang Linda (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    In this work, I analyze the high-resolution spectra of 20 stars, chosen for their low metallicity [Fe/H] </~ -2.5 and proximity to the sun. Using these spectra I model the atmospheres of these stars by determing stellar ...
  • Harrison, Sarah Maureen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In this thesis we present results of lattice simulations of Gross-Neveu fermions in 1+1 dimensions. We re derive the representation of N flavors of Wilson fermions in terms of Ising spins on a 1 + 1 dimensional lattice ...
  • Shewmon, Ruth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The ability to control quantum systems with high fidelity is of fundamental importance to a variety of scientific experiments. This thesis describes the frequency stabilization of a laser which is used to coherently ...
  • Thomas, Nathaniel C. (Nathaniel Cabot) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    We briefly summarize arguments for inflation and discuss eternal inflation. We then discuss the motion of domain walls and null shells that form in two-bubble collision processes in both the global and in-bubble FRW ...
  • Dwyer, Daniel A. (Daniel Andrew), 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    Many extensions of the standard model predict heavy metastable particles which may be modeled as solitons (skyrmions of the Higgs field), relating their particle number to a winding number. Previous work has shown that the ...
  • Zou, David (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The Qweak experiment at Jefferson Lab aims to make the first precision measurement of the proton's weak charge, QP = 1 - 4 sin 2 9w at Q2 = 0.026GeV 2 . Given the precision goals in the Qweak experiment, the electron beam ...
  • Venkataram, Prashanth Sanjeev (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this thesis, I developed code in the MEEP finite-difference time domain classical electromagnetic solver to simulate the quantum phenomenon of spontaneous emission and its enhancement by a photonic crystal. The results ...
  • Fakhouri, Onsi Joe, 1983- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    In this thesis we use gravitational lensing statistics to constrain the QSO luminosity function at a variety of redshifts. We present a theoretical discussion of gravitational lensing statistics and illustrate how high ...
  • Ackley, Sarah (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Arbitrary admixtures of amplitude and phase modulated light can be used to generate linear, null-crossing error signals for locking Fabry-Perot cavities that are detuned from resonance by arbitrary amounts. Unfortunately, ...
  • Davis, Emily, S.B. (Emily J.) Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    It is currently well-known how to lock an optical cavity on resonance using the Pound- Drever-Hall technique. It is also possible to lock a cavity at a single detuned length using an amplitude modulated laser beam. However, ...
  • Mann, Ariana Joy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The newly developed single molecule microscopy method of flow cell-convex lens induced confinement (FC-CLIC) allows for the previously unobtainable probing of slow and weak DNA and protein interactions. Such measurements ...
  • Duboc, Charles A. (Charles Albert), 1923- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1943)
  • Shen, Nancy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Most of the young stars in the Orion Trapezium Cluster are much more peculiar in X-rays than expected, considering their structure, environment, and age. Highly resolved X-ray spectra provide many more details in order to ...
  • Buttz, Catalina M. (Catalina Marie) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    This thesis makes predictions for the temperature anisotropy spectrum of the CMB under the supernatural inflation model class [17] and compares these predictions against the Boomerang 98 data [5], using the Lange et. al ...
  • Choi, HyoJeong (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The Dark Matter Time Projection Chamber (DMTPC) is a low pressure (CF 4) detector that measures the two-dimensional vector direction of nuclear recoils, and it aims to directly detect dark matter. This paper explores cosmic ...
  • Quintero, Eric Antonio (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    In this thesis, I designed and constructed a basic Cerenkov detector to measure the energy spectrum of cosmic ray muons for use in the graduate experimental physics courses, 8.811/2. The apparatus consists of a light-tight ...
