  • Bader, Samuel James (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis discusses recent experimental work in measuring the properties of higher levels in transmon qubit systems. The first part includes a thorough overview of transmon devices, explaining the principles of the device ...
  • Labaziewicz, Jarosław (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    While quantum information processing offers a tantalizing possibility of a significant speedup in execution of certain algorithms, as well as enabling previously unmanageable simulations of large quantum systems, it remains ...
  • Wilson, Christopher Blake (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) is a valuable tool which can be used to enhance nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) signal intensities in a variety of biological and materials science systems, by transferring polarization ...
  • Villadsen, Jacqueline Rose (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) is a network of long-arm interferometers designed to directly measure gravitational-wave strain. Direct observation of gravitational waves would provide a test ...
  • Gazak, Jonathan Zachary (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    GRS 1915+105 is an accreting black-hole in a binary system located in the Milky Way. It is one of the most variable X-ray sources known, and 12 variability classifications have been defined, many of which appear to be ...
  • Rahman, Sabbir Ahmed, 1971- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997)
  • Throwe, William (William Thomas) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Orbits around black holes evolve due to gravitational-wave emission, losing energy and angular momentum, and driving the orbiting body to slowly spiral into the black hole. Recent theoretical advances now make it possible ...
  • Zhan, Xiaohui (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Experiment E08-007 measured the proton elastic form factor ratio [mu]GE/GM in the range of Q2 = 0.3-0.7(GeV/c)2 by recoil polarimetry. Data were taken in 2008 at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility in Virginia, ...
  • Ellithorpe, John D. (John Day) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Heine, Sarah Nicole Trowbridge (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Charge exchange, the semi-resonant transfer of an electron from a neutral atom to an excited state in an energetic ion, can occur in plasmas where energetic ions are incident on a cold, at least partially neutral gas. ...
  • Redner, Sidney (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1977)
  • Zwierlein, Martin W (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This thesis presents experiments in which a strongly interacting gas of fermions was brought into the superfluid regime. The strong interactions are induced by a Feshbach scattering resonance that allows to tune the ...
  • Grabowska, Dorota M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Holography is a novel approach to modeling strongly interacting many-body systems. By reorganizing the quantum many-body problem into an equivalent problem in classical gravity, holography makes it relatively easy, for ...
  • Balasubramanian, Koushik (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Motivated by the AdS/CFT correspondence for relativistic CFTs, it seems natural to generalize it to non-relativistic CFTs. Such a dual description could provide insight into strong coupling phenomena observed in condensed ...
  • Iqbal, Nabil (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    In this thesis we apply techniques arising from string theory - gauge-gravity/duality, or holography - to problems associated with strongly coupled quantum field theories under extreme conditions such as finite temperature ...
  • D'Eramo, Francesco (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    In this thesis, we build new Effective Field Theory tools to describe the propagation of energetic partons in hot and dense media, and we propose two new reactions for dark matter in the early universe. In the first part, ...
  • Chen, Xing, 1956- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1988)
  • Sfakianakis, Evangelos I (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this thesis I study the generation of density perturbations in two classes of inflationary models: hybrid inflation and multifield inflation with non-minimal coupling to gravity. In the case of hybrid inflation, we ...
  • Cetina, Marko, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This thesis presents two hybrid systems for quantum information processing - one joining cold ions and cold atoms and another coupling linear chains of atomic ions with photons via an optical resonator. The first experimental ...
