  • Gonzalez, Edgar Raul, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    We present the results of five Chandra observations of the normal galaxy NGC 3877. A total of 27 X-ray sources are detected, including SN 1998S. We find 15 sources to be variable during the 646-day period covered by the ...
  • Shi, Yeming (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    We investigate the robustness with respect to the introduction of nonconformality of five properties of strongly coupled plasmas that have been calculated in K = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills (SYM) theory at nonzero temperature, ...
  • Chao, Adam (Adam C.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this series of experiments, we add salt to a photoresist developer and observe the effect on photoresist contrast. In order to measure contrast, we designed an anti-reflection coating stack to reduce reflections between ...
  • Zimmermann, Michelle (Michelle Anne) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The hole-doped cuprate Bi ... is doped with lead to the solubility limit of x = 0.38 and studied using STM/STS in the overdoped regime where Tc < 2K. Despite the high lead content, residual supermodulations are observed ...
  • Ramazanoğlu, Fethï Mübïn (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    We present the P-matrix, an alternative method to parameterize the S-matrix, which is particularly useful for low energy meson-meson scattering. We discuss its basic properties and use it to analyze the isospin 0 and 2 ...
  • Sun, Fei, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    In this thesis, we wish to test the hypothesis that scattering by a random potential causes localization of wave functions, and that this localization is governed by the Born postulate of quantum mechanics. We begin with ...
  • Cook, Laurel A. (Laurel Anne) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1994)
  • Joubert, Timothy Robert (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The analysis presented in this paper incorporated photon events received during the full run time of the Fermi Gamma Space Telescope (FGST) Large Area Telescope (LAT) to date. By studying the [gamma]y emission of the ...
  • Greene Chana M. (Chana Michelle) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    At the MIT-Bates Linear Accelerator Center a comprehensive study of low-Q2 spin-dependent electron scattering from deuterium has been carried out using the Bates Large Acceptance Spectrometer Toroid (BLAST). This experiment ...
  • Mott, Alexander (Alexander Robert) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In this analysis, we set an upper bound on the rate of rare events: events whose dN/dn distribution deviates more than statistically from the ensemble average dN/dn distribution for s [the square root of sigma nu nu] = 200 ...
  • Singh, Kevin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The Higgs decay into a photon and a Z boson, with the Z boson decaying into an electron-positron pair (electron channel) or muon-antimuon pair (muon channel), allows for accurate reconstructions of the Higgs boson mass and ...
  • Assawasunthonnet, Wathid (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In this thesis I explore the theoretical model based on Asakawa and Nonaka's idea[l]. I start by arguing that the critical point of the QCD phase diagram is second order and belongs to the three dimensional Ising model ...
  • Brainerd, Andrew Eric (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The Dirac equation is the relativistic generalization of the Schrödinger equation for spin 1/2 particles. It is written in the form -ihc -ihac OXIa+t' Omc 29 = ih-o (1.1) where V) is a four component Dirac spinor and the ...
  • Bieber, Christalee (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    I apply the theory of polar and apolar intermolecular interactions to predict the behavior of combinations of common battery materials, specifically the cathode substrate lithium cobalt oxide (LCO) and the polymer separator ...
  • Werner, Andrew Thompson, 1981- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    A self-triggering readout for a time projection chamber (TPC) is presented, with applications to novel forms of data acquisition for high energy physics application. The construction and initial testing of the readout ...
  • Fisher, Zachary (Zachary Kenneth) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    In this thesis, I present experimental results demonstrating the characterization of a planar Paul trap. I discuss the theory of ion trapping and analyze the voltages required for shuttling. Next, the characteristics of a ...
  • Wissner-Gross, Zachary Daniel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Rapid and accurate detection of airborne micro-particles is currently an important problem in national security. One approach to such detection, bioaerosol mass spectrometry (BAMS), is currently under development at Lawrence ...
  • Harrington, Kathleen M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The GEANT4 physics simulation program is known to have errors in how hadronic interactions are implemented. This has the potential to cause errors in the Monte Carlos used to determine the expected neutron backgrounds in ...
  • Howe, Ethan (Ethan Gabriel Grief) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Introduction: In this paper, I will be assessing the capabilities of the Neutral Meson Spectrometer (NMS) detector in a planned experiment at the High Intensity Gamma Source at Duke University. I will review the relevant ...
  • Venkatachalam, Vivek (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    One of the largest problems in scanning tunneling microscopy design is noise control. It is the burden of the designer to determine if money should be used to build a floating room for vibration isolation or for top-of-the-line ...
