  • Klingshim, Christopher J (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Infrared (IR) thermal detectors and photodetectors have significant applications including thermal imaging, infrared spectroscopy and chemical and biological sensing. In this work we focus on photodetectors, which typically ...
  • Bright, Molly (Molly Gallogly) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    The Standard Model of particle physics predicts the existence of the "Unitary Triangle," which graphically relates the matrix elements of the Cabbibo Kobayashi Maskawa matrix and describes the strength of transformations ...
  • Katz, Rena J. (Rena Jenelle) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Energy levels of the valence electron of a single trapped ⁸⁸Sr+ ion can be harnessed as an effective qubit for quantum information processing. The qubit transition to a metastable energy state can be stimulated by a laser ...
  • Zahniser, Russell, 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    When a jet of water is in free fall, it rapidly breaks up into drops, since a cylinder of water is unstable. This and other problems involving the form of a volume of water bound by surface tension have yielded a wealth ...
  • Strachan, John Paul, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    This thesis describes tracking objects with low-level electric fields. A physical model is presented that describes the important interactions and the required mathematical inversions. Sophisticated hardware used to perform ...
  • Dorfman, Seth E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    On December 25, 2004, a large-scale ionospheric plasma bubble was observed over Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico, inducing significant range spreading on ionograms. This phenomena may be explained by means of the E x B ...
  • Sahin, Timur Cemal (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Dark matter makes up approximately 22% of the energy density of the universe and as much as 83% of its matter composition. Despite its ubiquitous nature, it remains incredibly difficult to detect due to the weakness of its ...
  • Zaheer, Saad (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    We study the electromagnetic Casimir interaction of a metallic compact object with a compact and bounded metallic surface in which it is contained. We express the interaction energy in terms of the objects' scattering ...
  • Diab, Kenan S. (Kenan Sebastian) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    In this thesis, I will explore some of the ways the information-theoretic properties of quantum many-body systems can be analyzed. I do this in two different settings. First, I will describe an approach to the "scrambling ...
  • Rosenhaus, Vladimir (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    This thesis studies intersecting brane models, which are a class of quasi-realistic compactifications of string theory. Techniques are developed for exploring the complete space of intersecting brane models on an orientifold. ...
  • Grandke, Annemarie N. (Annemarie Nina), 1983- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
  • 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 ...
  • Palmer, Richard Everett (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1966)
  • 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 ...
