  • Chrisman, Bruce Lowell; Irwin, George Moore (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1964)
  • Masurkar, Amrita V (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The goal of this thesis was to perform quartz-enhanced photoacoustic spectroscopy (QEPAS) on trace concentrations of NH3 in the 1.53 pm region with a DFB laser without the use of a resonating cavity. I analyzed the process ...
  • Fong, Wen-fai (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Extrasolar planet transit photometry is a relatively new astronomical technique developed over the past decade. Transit photometry is the measurement of a star's brightness as an orbiting planet passes in front of the star ...
  • Easley, Justin Lavaughn (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis, I fabricated and tested p-channel dual gate MOSFETs that will be used to make conductance and resistance measurements of nanocrystalline solids. Using MOSFETs with narrow gates, we can measure the resistance ...
  • Bowers, Jeffrey Allan, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
    In this thesis I consider a scheme for quantum computation in which quantum bits (qubits) are stored in individual spectral holes of an in homogeneously broadened medium, such as a cryogenically cooled crystal of Pr:Y2 SiO ...
  • Haussman, Robert C (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The STAR experiment at the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) is carrying out a spin physics program at is = 200 - 500 GeV to gain a deeper insight into the spin structure and ...
  • Mahajan, Raghu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The AdS/CFT correspondence has provided a new tool to investigate strongly correlated systems in condensed matter physics. This thesis presents the computation of retarded fermion Green functions at finite density and zero ...
  • George, Elizabeth Marie (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Atomic ion traps are are excellent tools in atomic physics for studying single ions. Accurate measurement of the ion's electronic state in these ion traps is required by both atomic clocks and quantum computation. Quantum ...
  • Hafstrom, John William (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1965)
  • Schulz, Peter Anfaenger (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1975)
  • Truesdale, Derek Warren, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Caldwell, Thomas S., Jr (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    A 10 liter prototype Dark Matter Time Projection Chamber (DMTPC) is operated on the surface of the earth at 75 Torr using carbon-tetrafluoride (CF4) as a target material to obtain a 24.57 gram-day exposure. A limit is set ...
  • Li, Chen, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This thesis presents an ab initio study of biological molecules using first-principles molecular dynamics. Density functional theory and Car-Parrinello molecular dynamics are used in the computational modeling of the water ...
  • Roach, Austin Hayes (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The Levitated Dipole Experiment (LDX) is a joint Columbia University/MIT research collaboration sited at MIT's Plasma Science and Fusion Center. LDX is investigating the physics of a plasma confined in a dipole magnetic ...
  • Feynman, Richard Phillips (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1939)
  • Oza, Shefali Bharat, 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    In this thesis, I discuss the Brans-Dicke theory of gravitation, the Higgs mechanism, and the relevance of these two theories to the bridging of cosmology and particle physics. Although the former theory is in the field ...
  • Russell, Megan, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    This thesis presents two different formalisms which can be used together to evolve a density perturbation produced during inflation forwards in time in the radiation-dominated era of the early universe. The first formalism, ...
  • Sievers, Charles A. (Charles Anders), 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    For my thesis, I worked towards using two reference cavities to provide frequency stabilization to a 486nm dye-ring laser. After a doubling cavity doubles the frequency to 243nm, the laser beam is used to excite ground ...
  • McGehee, William R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    This thesis details the motivation, design, construction, and testing of the Gamma Intensity Monitor (GIM) for the Crystal-Barrel-Experiment at the Universität Bonn. The CB-ELSA collaboration studies the baryon excitation ...
  • Tamm, Brian Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The gas electron multiplier (GEM) is a novel charge amplification element for use in gaseous particle detectors. Because of their high gain ([approx.] 10⁵ when cascaded) and ability to withstand harsh radiation conditions, ...
