  • Ngai, Samuel S. H (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    A Multi-Scale Analysis methodology was developed and carried out for gaining fundamental understanding of the pharmaceutical powder blending process. Through experiment, analysis and computer simulations, microscopic ...
  • Dyer, Matthew Simon, 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    This thesis explores the application of multiscale ideas to the areas of state estimation and control. The work represents a significant departure from the traditional representations in the time and frequency domains, and ...
  • Karslıgil, Orhan I. (Orhan Ismet), 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    Traditional approaches in Model Predictive Control (MPC) suffer from several weaknesses such as: (a) Satisfying the output constraints over a finite control horizon and guaranteeing closed loop stability. (b) The need for ...
  • Rodgers, Seth Thomas, 1970- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    In this work, a framework and a set of modeling tools capable of describing systems with key processes occurring on widely separated length and time scales has been developed. The major focus of this work is linking atomistic ...
  • Kim, Gwang-Soo, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    Ionized physical vapor deposition (IPVD) and electrochemical deposition (ECD) are two major thin film deposition processes in the microelectronics industry. The ion fluxes with high kinetic energies in IPVD process involve ...
  • Nemirovskaya, Maria A., 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    In order to predict the quality of the fabricated devices as a function of growth conditions in chemical vapor deposition (CVD) reactors, a model should describe multiple time and length scales. These scales include the ...
  • Zheng, Huan, Ph.D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The overarching theme of this thesis is to develop and apply multi-scale computational techniques adopted from physical sciences to study a key phenomenon underlying the adaptive immune response: the activation of T cells. ...
  • Venkataramani, Rajesh, 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    This thesis develops modeling techniques for chemical vapor deposition processes, specifically metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy (MOVPE). The difficulty in creating an overall modeling strategy for the MOVPE process is that ...
  • Suen, Jason Ka-Chun, 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    Knowing and understanding the dynamics and molecular configurations of polymer molecules is important for efficient process design and novel product development. Much research has been focused on combining molecular ...
  • Phillips, Ronald Jefferson (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1990)
  • Goodlin, Brian E., 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    In plasma etching process it is critical to know when the film being etched has cleared to the underlying film, i.e. to detect endpoint, in order to achieve the desired device performance in the resulting integrated circuit. ...
  • He, Hong, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    A nanocomposite system, CuO-Ag/CeO 2, has been successfully developed to complete carbon black combustion by 400*C. This novel catalyst has excellent potential for application in the emission control of soot particulates ...
  • Pitukmanorom, Pemakorn, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    (cont.) reducing agent than propane in the SCR of NO. Pt-Rh/CuO/A1₂O₃ nanocomposites capable of adsorbing SO₂ in oxygen-rich environment as metal sulfates and releasing SO₂ in reducing atmosphere were synthesized with ...
  • Sangar, Neeraj, 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    Nanocrystalline perovskites (Lal-xAMnl-yByO3) were successfully synthesized with higher surface area and smaller grain size by chemical co-precipitation compared to solid-state and complexation/combustion synthesis routes. ...
  • Min, Jouha (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    One of the important problems in the field of orthopedic medicine is the ability to create a stable bone-materials interface with an implant, particularly when faced with the difficult condition of bone infection. Only ...
  • Lin, Kevin (Kevin Yu-Ming) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Over the past 30 years, advances in nanotechnology have generated a multitude of nanostructures exhibiting a breadth of physical, chemical, and biological properties that have tremendous potential to improve the detection ...
  • Ahn, Edward Sun, 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    Historically, using suitable mechanical replacements for bone has been a priority in designing permanent, load-bearing orthopedic implants. As a result, the biomaterials used in these implants have been largely limited to ...
  • Ma, Minglin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Electrospinning has emerged in recent years as a relatively easy, efficient and robust method to make ultrafine continuous fibers with diameter on the order of -100 nm from a variety of materials. As a result, numerous ...
  • Wood, Kris Cameron (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Molecular self-assembly describes the assembly of molecular components into complex, supramolecular structures governed by weak, non-covalent interactions. In recent years, molecular self-assembly has been used extensively ...
  • Gonzalez, Lino A. (Lino Alberto), 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In this work we studied the focusing and trapping of submicron, nonmagnetic species immersed in a magnetic nanofluid under applied magnetic fields. Focusing was achieved using two pairs of permanent magnets, which forced ...
