  • Sierchio, Jennifer Marie (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In the past, two methods for analyzing data from the Gas Puff Imaging diagnostic on Alcator C-Mod have been used. One uses temporal and spatial Fourier analysis to obtain wavenumber-frequency spectra, from which a phase ...
  • Lai, Andrew P. (Andrew Pan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Quantum dots in Si/SiGe have long spin decoherence times, due to the low density of nuclear spins and weak coupling between nuclear and electronic spins. Because of this, they are excellent candidates for use as solid state ...
  • Koch, William Lawrence (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Since the dawn of the nuclear weapons era, political, military, and scientific leaders around the world have been working to contain the proliferation of Special Nuclear Material and explosively fissile material. This paper ...
  • Pan, Kai, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    An experiment that measured the parity violating (PV) asymmetry Ad in e- 2H deep inelastic scattering (DIS) at Q2 ~ 1.10 and 1.90 (GeV/c) 2 and XB ~ 0.3 was completed in experimental Hall A at the Thomas Jefferson National ...
  • Van Camp, Mackenzie A. (Mackenzie Anne) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis, I report on the design and construction of the Rubidium Atomic Gyroscope Experiment (RAGE) at Draper Lab.
  • Russom, Jeffrey Nary (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Kerr-lens mode locked Ti:sapphire lasers are the backbone of most ultrafast and attosecond pulse generation systems. As such when building such systems the experimentalist desires an easy to use and robust system to produce ...
  • Zhao, Ying Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    In this thesis, we studied a vector operator in finite density system through AdS-CFT correspondence. By numerically solving the wave equations of the corresponding vector field in a AdS-RN black hole background geometry, ...
  • Santiago González, Ibon (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This thesis describes the construction of a versatile apparatus to study ultracold quantum mixtures capable of simultaneously cooling fermionic ⁶Li and ⁴⁰K, as well as the bosonic ⁴¹K. The main features of the experimental ...
  • Fitzgerald, Eric Andrew Vitus (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The Casimir energy is the change in energy of a configuration of objects due to second quantization of the electromagnetic field. The Casimir energy of a dielectric object inside a perfectly conducting sphere was recently ...
  • Han, Tianheng, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    An ideal spin-% kagomé lattice has been a long sought material. This system is characterized by strong magnetic frustration and is a likely candidate for a spin-liquid ground state. The spin-liquid state was originally ...
  • Chen, Zhao, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In this thesis, we present simulations, using Finite Element Method (FEM), of phonon-polariton generation and coherent control in ferroelectric crystals LiNbO₃ and LiTaO₃ through nonlinear electro-optic interactions with ...
  • Corona, Thomas Joseph (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino (KATRIN) experiment is a tritium beta decay experiment designed to make a direct, model independent measurement of the electron neutrino mass. To accomplish this task, the experiment employs ...
  • Beatty, Thomas Gavin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    An extrasolar planet discovered around one of the brightest stars in the sky would be a prime target for follow-on observing and characterization, especially if the planet were within the star's habitable-zone. The brightest ...
  • Hucul, David (David Alexander) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The methods of atomic physics offer a unique opportunity to study strongly correlated many body systems. It is possible to confine BECs in periodic optical lattices to form an analog of a solid state system. The study of ...
  • Son, Nguyen Thanh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Inflation is a substantial modification to the big bang theory, and supernatural inflation is a hybrid inflation motivated from supersymmetry. In this thesis we carry out a one dimensional numerical simulation to verify ...
  • Celebi, Kemal (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Organic materials, with their superior photoluminescence and absorbance properties have revolutionized the technologies for displays and solar energy conversion. Due to the large transition dipoles, the localization of ...
  • Volkmer Ward, Sabine M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    The actin cross-linker [alpha]-actinin-4 has been found indispensable for the structural and functional integrity of podocytes; deficiency or alteration of this protein due to mutations disturbs the cytoskeleton and results ...
  • Luitel, Prashant (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Circadian clocks are ubiquitous throughout the living world. Of these circadian clocks, the simplest one is found in cyanobacteria - unicellular, photosynthetic marine organisms. Studies of the circadian clock of Synechococcus ...
  • Kurs, André (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Using self-resonant coils in a strongly coupled regime, we experimentally demonstrate efficient non-radiative power transfer over distances of up to eight times the radius of the coils. We use this system to transfer 60W ...
  • Rapoport, Benjamin Isaac (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This thesis develops a system for adaptively and automatically learning to interpret patterns of electrical activity in neuronal populations in a real-time, on-line fashion. The system is primarily intended to enable the ...
