  • Baugher, Britton William Herbert (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Electronic transport in atomically thin layered materials has been a burgeoning field of study since the discovery of isolated single layer graphene in 2004. Graphene, a semi-metal, has a unique gapless Dirac-like band ...
  • Dutta, Valentina (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this thesis, I describe the search for a Higgs boson through its decay to a pair of tan leptons with the tau-pair subsequently decaying to ail electron, a muon, and neutrinos. The search is performed using data collected ...
  • Lekaveckas, Mindaugas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this thesis properties of probe particle traveling through quark gluon plasma as created in heavy ion collisions are investigated. In the first part, probability distribution P(k1 ) is calculated for an energetic parton ...
  • Lopez, Jeremy Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Astronomical and cosmological evidence suggests that 27% of the energy content of the universe is in the form of non-baryonic matter referred to as "dark matter." Weakly interacting massive particles have long been considered ...
  • Mezei, Márk (Márk Koppany) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    We devote this thesis to the exploration of how to define the number of degrees of freedom in quantum field theory. Intuitively, the number of degrees of freedom should decrease along the renormalization group (RG) flow, ...
