  • 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)
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Hill, James Colin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this thesis, I present a new determination of the cluster mass function in a volume ~107 h-03 70 Mpc3 using the ROSAT-2MASS-FAST Group Survey (R2FGS). R2FGS is an X-ray-selected sample of systems from the ROSAT All-Sky ...
  • Brown, Keith Andrew (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Cryogenic characterization is a crucial part of understanding the behavior of low-temperature quantum electronics. Reliable device testing provides the feedback to fabrication process development, facilitating the rapid ...
  • Hossain, Chintan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Helical ribbons form in a many multi-component solutions containing sterols similar to cholesterol, but remarkably, almost all the helices have a pitch angle of 11⁰ or 54⁰. The consistent pitch angle of the ribbons may be ...
  • Lam, Yukyam, 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    According to the WMAP and earlier COBE observations, the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) anisotropy power on large angular scales appears to be significantly lower than predicted by the standard model of cosmology. We ...
  • Katzin, Dustin R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    We describe a setup to search for the existence of a massive gauge boson A', the "dark photon," mediating dark matter interactions with coupling strength [alpha]'. In certain models, the A' decays promptly but invisibly ...
  • Fei, Lin, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    We study a new form of dark matter interaction which may significantly affect the thermal relic abundance of dark matter. This new interaction takes the form C+D --> C+[phi], where D is the dark matter species present ...
  • Focht, John G. (John Gilbert), 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    The process for calculating the single photoelectron gain in the Super-Kamiokande outer detector has been streamlined. The original technique used optic fibers to expose the detector's photomultiplier tubes to known amounts ...
  • Richerme, Philip J (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This thesis describes the design and construction of two laser systems to probe the 674nm transition of ⁸⁸Sr⁺ ions in a linear Paul trap. The first laser system made use of a molecular transition in Iodine to stabilize the ...
