  • Demir, Nasser Soliman, 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    In this thesis, we present the results of studies of physical properties in three classes of novel carbon-based materials: carbon aerogels, single-walled carbon nanotubes, and high thermal conductivity graphitic foams. The ...
  • Nowak, Sara Alice, 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    In this thesis, I investigate the static and dynamic properties of a granular heap made cohesive by an interstitial fluid. I present the results of experimental work measuring the maximum angle of stability and the angle ...
  • Soane, Alexander (Alexander Visotsky) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The dynamics of asymmetric blobs is investigated in the Versatile Toroidal Facility (VTF) at MIT. Blobs are local regions of enhanced plasma density. Blobs are relevant to several areas of physics research, including fusion ...
  • Takasaki, Kevin T. (Keven Takao) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Experiments carried out with magnetically confined, high temperature plasmas have revealed important effects that have yet to be justified by existing theory. In particular, there arises an anomalous particle inflow in the ...
  • Dalal, Ravindra Vinod, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Tummel, Kurt (Kurt K.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    We numerically and analytically investigate the linear complex mode frequencies of model micro-reconnecting plasma modes which have transverse wavelengths of the order of the electron skin depth c/lwpe. This model mode, ...
  • Garcia, Daniel Robert, 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    The discovery of unconventional superconductivity in hydrated Na₀Ì£₃CoO₂·1.3H₂0 has lead to active research work on the material over the last year due to its similarities and possible insight into the high-T[sub]c copper ...
  • Cohen, Joel (Joel A.), S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The thermal filamentation instability has been invoked to explain the formation of parallel plate waveguides in mid-latitude ionospheric plasmas during Arecibo, Puerto Rico heating experiments in 1997. The geometry of the ...
  • Burton, Laura M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This thesis investigates the cascade lines from Langmuir wave turbulence as a result of Parametric Decay Instability (PDI) in the ionosphere. This effect is studied using a high-frequency (HF) heater located at the NSF/DoD ...
  • López Mateos, David (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    In this thesis we perform analyses on simulated data that allow us to demonstrate the sensitivity of the CMS experiment to certain jet quenching observables. In particular, two theoretical scenarios which mimic RHIC data ...
  • Koch, Philip Otto (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1956)
  • Tobin, Jill M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1985)
  • Gharibyan, Hrant (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis explores two different topics in physics. The first is related to the study of the ER = EPR conjecture that relates the entanglement entropy of a collection of black holes to the cross sectional area of ...
  • Chiu, Christie Shinglei (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The neutrino experiment MicroBooNE is currently under construction. To expedite the physics output of MicroBooNE, a smaller version of its optical detection system has been implemented. To demonstrate full operability of ...
  • Shields, Brendan John (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In this thesis, we demonstrate a functioning planar radio frequency, three-rod Paul Trap, loaded with Yb+ ions that have been photoionized from a source of neutral atoms, which were cooled in a magneto-optical trap. Planar ...
  • Chu, Yiwen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    We demonstrate a procedure for cooling, trapping, and transferring rubidium atoms into a hollow core photonic band gap fiber. The atoms are first collected in a magneto-optical trap (MOT) and then cooled using polarization ...
  • Walk, John Reel, Jr (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Using a spatially-resolving x-ray spectrometer system, toroidal impurity rotation in Alcator C-Mod plasmas was measured. The propagation of the rotational velocity from the edge to the core of the plasma column was measured ...
  • McEwen, Heather K. (Heather Kristine), 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    The Magellan Instant Camera (MagIC) is an optical CCD camera that was built at MIT and is currently used at Las Campanas Observatory (LCO) in La Serena, Chile. It is designed to be both simple and efficient with minimal ...
  • Savcheva, Antonia Stefanova (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    We consider geometrically thin accretion disks around millisecond X-ray pulsars. We start with the Shakura-Sunyaev thin disk model as a basis and modify the disk equations with a magnetic torque from the central neutron ...
