  • Sekora, Michael David (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The locomotion of a wide class of motile bacteria can be mathematically described as a biased random walk in three-dimensional space. Fluid mechanics and probability theory are invoked to model the dynamics of bacteria ...
  • Dyer, Ira (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1949)
  • Epstein, Frederick Solomon (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1957)
  • Kesich, Anthony (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    We develop method to extract elemental abundance ratios using temperature-insensitive ratios of x-ray line fluxes for a collisionally ionized plasma. This method is then refined using more realistic plasma models for coronae ...
  • Burns, Laurie Davenport (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In my thesis project, I provide a description of the entire process of materials preparation, assembly, testing, and characterization of several triple-GEM (Gas-Electron Multiplier) prototype detectors. GEM detectors ...
  • Weaver, Matthew J. (Matthew James) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Optical links are a promising alternative to the electrical interconnects that are currently used between chips within a computer. A crucial part of an optical link is a modulator, a device that converts an electrical ...
  • Bardalez Gagliuffi, Daniella C (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    We propose a new method to detect intergalactic Lyman a emitter and absorber systems by comparing broadband and narrowband images. The narrowband observations were carried out with the Maryland-Magellan Tunable Filter ...
  • Vodhanel, Mark E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The relation between processing, microstructure, and material property was investigated in the high-temperature superconducting Bi₂Sr₂Ca₁Cu₂Ox̳/Ag system. Experiments were based on a theoretical surface energy model ...
  • Kiger, James Robert, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1997)
  • Devalapalli, Aditya P. (Aditya Prakash) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Superconducting quantum circuits (SQCs) are being explored as model systems for scalable quantum computing architectures. Josephson junctions are extensively used in superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs) ...
  • Salas, Anthony Rene, 1969- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Brown, Susannah (Susannah R.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    This thesis details a measurement setup and experimental procedures for emittance measurements using a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer. We calibrate the FTIR measurement system using measurements of a blackbody ...
  • Santana, Rodolfo, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In my thesis project, I worked on the Thermal Model for the FGT detector. The purpose of this thermal model is to simulate the cooling system for the electronics of the FGT. In this thesis report, I go over the construction ...
  • Avestruz, Al-Thaddeus (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1994)
  • Nelson, Justin Matthew, 1981- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    This study is concerned with the percentage of [gamma]-rays of a certain energy having their energy correctly measured by a high purity Germanium [gamma]-ray detector. The ratio between the total counts and the counts ...
  • Bakr, Waseem (Waseem S.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This thesis describes experiments with ion traps constructed with electrodes in a single two-dimensional plane, and ion traps operated in a cryogenic environment at 77K and 4K temperatures. These two technologies address ...
  • Ramasesh, Vinay (Vinay V.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This thesis reports the achievement of a two-species apparatus for use in an upcoming experiment with fermionic ultracold atomic gases. First, we describe the construction of a laser system capable of cooling and trapping ...
  • Rapoport, Sharon, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    A variety of fundamental and technical noise sources impact the ability of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) to directly detect gravitational radiation. Noteworthy examples include Newtonian ...
  • Chen, Zilong, 1981- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Quantum bang-bang control is a method of suppressing decoherence in qubits [VKL99, VL98]. To date, mathematically rigorous treatments of quantum bang-bang control offered little intuition. To complement existing approaches ...
  • Wei, Haofei (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Graphene, a newly discovered material. has been the subject of much experimental and theoretical study due to its unique electronic behavior. In this thesis, I present, my work with graduate student Joel Wang to design and ...
