  • Fu, Jianping, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Direct analysis of biologically-relevant entities such as nucleic acids and proteins offers the potential to outperform conventional analysis techniques and diagnostic methods through enhancements in speed, accuracy, and ...
  • Sen, Yi-Heng (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    This thesis focuses on characterizing and controlling the translocation of single 48.5 kbp [lambda]-DNA molecules through an artificial nanopore with the objective of enabling multiple measurements on the same molecule. ...
  • White, James R. (James Robert), 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    The handling of extremely small samples of gases and liquids has long been a subject of research among biologists, chemists and engineers. A few scientific instruments, notably the atomic force microscope and the surface ...
  • Samouhos, Stephen V. (Stephen Vincent), 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Introduction: Nanotechnology, in its many forms, has evolved as a forefront of the global scientific and technological frontier. Materials once disregarded as very small dust or particulate impurities twenty years ago, are ...
  • Tavakoli Nia, Hadi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Cartilage, as well as many soft connective tissues, functions mechanically across a wide spectrum of daily loading frequencies (time scales), from <1 Hz in slow activities such as walking, to 1000 Hz for high-rate activities ...
  • Abudayyeh, Omar 0 (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Many biomarker-based diagnostics have poor predictive value because of their dependence on naturally occurring endogenous biomolecules to indicate disease. This work presents a diagnostic platform that uses nanoparticles ...
  • Yang, Ronggui, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    When the device or structure characteristic length scales are comparable to the mean free path and wavelength of energy carriers (electrons, photons, phonons, and molecules) or the time of interest is on the same order as ...
  • Eusner, Thor (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    During the chemical-mechanical polishing (CMP) process, a critical step in the manufacture of ultra-large-scale integrated (ULSI) semiconductor devices, undesirable nano-scale scratches are formed on the surfaces being ...
  • Wahab, Adam Joseph (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The development of an Autonomous Nano-stepping Tool (ANT) system is presented. Each ANT is a small, tripodal, robotic instrument capable of untethered precision motion within a quasi-three-dimensional workspace of arbitrary ...
  • Kuryak, Chris A. (Chris Adam) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Thermoelectric materials have the ability to convert heat directly into electricity. This clean energy technology has advantages over other renewable technologies in that it requires no sunlight, has no moving parts, and ...
  • Mendoza, Jonathan Michael (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Understanding how thermal transport is affected by disorder is crucial to the prediction and engineering of novel materials suitable for thermoelectric and device applications. Ab initio methods have demonstrated accurate ...
  • Hernandez-Mena, Lucas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Sir Ken Robinson said, "We don't grow into creativity, we grow out of it or rather we're educated out of it."' Throughout my education I have found this statement to be true especially in it's relation to high school ...
  • Eselgroth, Peter Ward; Griffith, P. (Cambridge, Mass. : M.I.T. Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, [1967], 1967)
    The steady-state flow configuration in an array of parallel heated channels is examined with the objective of predicting the behavior of a reactor during a loss of flow accident. A method of combining the results of single ...
  • Hunt, Michelle Renée (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1982)
  • Sappok, Alexander G. (Alexander Georg) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Diesel particulate filters (DPF) have seen widespread use in on- and off-road applications as an effective means for meeting increasingly stringent particle emissions regulations. Over time, incombustible material or ash, ...
  • Pineda, Elvine Philip B., II (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The flight of birds inspired engineers like Leonard da Vinci and Wilbur and Orville Wright to design aircraft that mimic the behavior they observed. The success of the Wright brothers' first controllable aircraft ushered ...
  • Sarris, Emmanouil (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Although propulsion and electric power systems selection is an important part of naval ship design, respective decisions often have to be made without detailed ship knowledge (resistance, propulsors, etc.). Propulsion and ...
  • Kim, Jaehyun, 1970- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Sambegoro, Poetro Lebdo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The theoretical calculations for near-field radiation heat transfer based on a local dielectric constant approach indicate that the heat transfer will go to infinity as the gap becomes very small. To correct this anomaly, ...
  • Pavlov, Atanas (Atanas Ivanov) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    A recent advancement in the area of needle-free injection systems has been the development of devices capable of epidermal delivery of powder medications. These devices use high-pressure compressed gas to accelerate drug ...
