  • Musiał, Wojciech, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    We present an introduction to ideas related to the holographic principle in the context of the well-established duality between classical gravity and conformal fluid dynamics. Foundations of relativistic hydrodynamics, ...
  • Benjamin, Nathan S (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The fluid/gravity correspondence describes an map from relativistic fluid dynamics to general relativity in an anti de Sitter (AdS) background in one more dimension. This is a specific example of a more general principle ...
  • 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 ...
  • Nair, Nityan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Graphene is a material that has generated much interest due to its many unique electronic and optical properties. In this work, we present optoelectronic measurements performed on ultrathin graphene-boron nitride-graphene ...
  • Mann, Ariana Joy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The newly developed single molecule microscopy method of flow cell-convex lens induced confinement (FC-CLIC) allows for the previously unobtainable probing of slow and weak DNA and protein interactions. Such measurements ...
  • Cela, Devin Artan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Graphene is a single 2-dimensional atomic layer of hexagonally packed carbon atoms. Graphene has a unique combination of thermal, mechanical, and electronic properties, making it a useful tool for learning new physics as ...
  • Wilson, Christopher Blake (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) is a valuable tool which can be used to enhance nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) signal intensities in a variety of biological and materials science systems, by transferring polarization ...
  • Su, Yi-Han, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this research, the manipulation of colloidal systems composed of superparamagnetic particles in water is studied by a simulation method. In response to an external magnetic field, the dipoles drive the beads to self-assemble ...
  • Rabga, Tenzin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis, we search for the plasma and field configurations that can exist under stationary conditions around a collapsed object such as a black hole. Regimes where the iso rotational condition corresponding to ...
  • Pasterski, Sabrina Gonzalez (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This study evaluates the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment's ability to characterize Higgs self-coupling through the ... channel. The effective cross-section for detecting ... events is computed by finding the fraction ...
  • Mendoza, Douglas M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    A general technique to construct quantum states that saturate uncertainty products using variational methods is developed. Such a method allows one to numerically compute uncertainties in cases where the Robertson-Schrodinger ...
  • Mazenc, Edward A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Cosmic inflation posits that the universe underwent a period of exponential expansion, driven by one or several quantum fields, shortly after the Big Bang. Renormalization requires the fields be non-minimally coupled to ...
  • 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 ...
  • Balakrishnan, Purnima Parvathy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The DarkLight experiment is searching for a dark force carrier, the A' boson, and hopes to measure its mass with a resolution of approximately 1 MeV/c 2 . This mass calculation requires precise reconstruction to turn data, ...
  • Changala, P. Bryan (Peter Bryan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis consists of parallel experimental and theoretical studies of the rovibrational structure and dynamics of the Si state of acetylene, C2H2 . This small molecule is a prototypical system for the study of cis-trans ...
  • 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 ...
  • Williams, Mobolaji (Mobolaji O.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis studies the decay of a pseudo-goldstino to a gravitino plus a photon in the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. The foundational premise of this decay process is that there are two independent sectors of ...
  • Tran, Kathy, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis, we study the timing of eclipses for contact binary systems in the Kepler catalog. Observed eclipse times were determined from Kepler long-cadence light curves and "observed minus calculated" (0 - C) curves ...
  • Galiano, Kevin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Layered copper/niobium (Cu/Nb) composites with small layer widths contain a high area per unit volume of solid-state interfaces. Interfaces have their own elasticity tensor, which affects the elastic properties of the ...
  • Ng, Edwin, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In optical communications, two measures of efficiency are commonly at odds. The first is the photon information efficiency (in bits/photon) which measures the information that each detected photon conveys; the second is ...
