  • Pickrell, M. M. (Mark Manley) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1976)
  • Pelc, Jason, 1984- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    We report on experimental observation of radiation-pressure induced effects in a high-power optical cavity. These effects play an important role in next generation gravitational wave detectors, as well as quantum non-demolition ...
  • Smith, Warren Douglas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1984)
  • Yu, Yichao (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis presents our work on developing and improving the techniques of trapping and cooling an ultra-cold cloud of Lithium-7 atoms and the realization of the Bose- Einstein condensate as a first step to study quantum ...
  • Fedus, William Bradley (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Astrophysical evidence indicates that 23% of our universe's energy density is in the form of nonluminous, nonbaryonic matter referred to as dark matter. One theoretically appealing dark matter candidate is the Weakly ...
  • Greenwood, Ross Norman (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    In this thesis, I investigated the extent to which the inclusion of multiple scalar fields in models of Higgs inflation produces observable departures from the single field case. I designed simulations to numerically solve ...
  • Cutler, Monarch L (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1939)
  • Gu, Jianwen Wendy, 1981- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    The conservation of angular momentum provides an elegant model for human walking and might be used to generate stable robotic locomotion if employed by a control algorithm. To examine the extent to which the body regulates ...
  • Stacey, Blake (Blake C.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    We investigate the classic "inverse problem" of extracting collision and scattering cross sections from measurements of electron swarm behavior. A Monte Carlo technique for simulating electron motion through a gas of ...
  • Fishback, John Ford (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1968)
  • Phan, Trung Van (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Quantum field theory is the most well-developed tool in theoretical physics to study about the dynamics at microscopic scales, with particles and quantum behaviors. In this thesis I'll review about the construction of ...
  • Hulcher, Zachary R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Within the context of a hybrid strong/weak coupling model of jet quenching, we study the consequences of the fact that the plasma produced in a heavy ion collision cannot resolve the substructure of a collimated parton ...
  • 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 ...
  • Prouty. Jeffrey C (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    We continue the work of Abbate et al. in [1], in which a factorization formula for the thrust distribution in electron-positron collisions was developed in the framework of soft-collinear effective theory. We extend 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, ...
  • Ring, Michael J., 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    This thesis explores the role of eddies in determining the stratification of the ocean through a laboratory experiment. The experiment uses a dual-tank apparatus, with a smaller tank sitting inside the larger tank. Both ...
  • 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 ...
