  • Dane, Andrew E. (Andrew Edward) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    DC reactive magnetron sputtering was used to deposit few-nanometer-thick films of niobium nitride for fabrication of superconducting devices. Over 1000 samples were deposited on a variety of substrates, under various chamber ...
  • Chan, Arthur Hsu Chen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Solar photovoltaic power generation is a promising clean and renewable energy technology that can draw upon the planet's most abundant power source - the sun. However, relatively high levelized cost of energy (LCOE), the ...
  • Achour, Sara (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The increasing prominence of energy consumption as a first-order concern in contemporary computing systems has motivated the design of energy-efficient approximate computing platforms. These computing platforms feature ...
  • Hamed, Ezzeldin Omar Hussein (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Despite the rapid growth of next-generation cellular networks, researchers and end users today have limited visibility into the performance and problems of these networks. As LTE deployments move towards femto and pico ...
  • Bylinskii, Zoya (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Previous studies have identified that images carry the attribute of memorability, a predictive value of whether a novel image will be later remembered or forgotten. In this thesis we investigate the interplay between ...
  • Ghazi, Badih (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Random (dv, dc)-regular LDPC codes (where each variable is involved in d, parity checks and each parity check involves d, variables) are well-known to achieve the Shannon capacity of the binary symmetric channel (for ...
  • Chan, Chun Wang Ivan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Terahertz Quantum Cascade Lasers (THz QCLs) are arguably the most promising technology today for the compact, efficient generation of THz radiation. Their main limitation is that they require cryogenic cooling, which ...
  • Dernoncourt, Franck (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Prediction studies on physiological signals are time-consuming: a typical study, even with a modest number of patients, usually takes from 6 to 12 months. In response we design a large-scale machine learning and analytics ...
  • Li, Duo, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Photonic microwave oscillator based on optical frequency comb and ultrastable optical reference cavity represents the state-of-the-art solution to generate X-band microwaves of ultralow phase noise. Such high-quality ...
  • Krieger, James David, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Digital techniques have had longstanding use in both the operational control and signal processing efforts associated with phased array antennas. Fundamentally, these techniques have served to provide additional levels of ...
  • Lee, Dong Seup (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Due to the unique combination of large critical breakdown field and high electron velocity, GaN-based high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) have great potential for next generation high power RF amplifiers. The ...
  • Krishna, Tushar (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Adding multiple processing cores on the same chip has become the de facto design choice as we continue extracting more and more performance/watt from our chips in every technology generation. In this context, the interconnect ...
  • Lee, Sunghyuk (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are essential building blocks in many electronic systems which require digital signal processing and storage of analog signals. Traditionally, ADCs are considered a power hungry circuit. ...
  • Lestoquoy, Guillaume (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    As the number of materials that are thermally-drawable into fibers is rapidly expending, numerous new multimaterial fiber architectures can be envisioned and fabricated. High-melting temperature metals, compound materials, ...
  • Liu, Jonathan Jaoshin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-contact, non-invasive, micron-scale optical imaging technology that has become a standard clinical tool in ophthalmology. Fourier domain OCT detection methods have enabled higher ...
  • Georgas, Michael S. (Michael Stephen) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Integrated photonics has emerged as an I/O technology set to disrupt the communication fabric of many-core computer systems. The optical technology uses wavelength-division-multiplexing and a high degree of integration in ...
  • Chung, SungWon, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The continued improvement of transistor performance has increased the limit on the peak energy-efficiency of wireless transmitters. Nevertheless, the average efficiency with mobile multimedia communication is decreasing ...
  • Goswami, Sushmit (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The desire for ubiquitous connectivity is pushing radios towards highly-integrated, multi-standard and multi-band implementations. This thesis explores architectures for next-generation RF frontends, which form the interface ...
  • Boyd-Wickizer, Silas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    One difficulty of programming multicore processors is achieving performance that scales with the number of cores in the system. A common performance optimization is to increase inter-core parallelism. If the application ...
  • Ansel, Jason (Jason Andrew) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The process of optimizing programs and libraries, both for performance and quality of service, can be viewed as a search problem over the space of implementation choices. This search is traditionally manually conducted by ...
