    • Baby incubator noise : causes and some reduction methods 

      Wales, Carl Alzen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1976)
    • The back stroke buddy 

      Fonder, Gregory Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
      The objective of this thesis was to study and improve one's own physical intelligence. Through studying bodily movements of people trying to accomplish new tasks, I realized one way to enhance physical intelligence was ...
    • Background music : National Socialist propaganda and the reinforcement of German virtue 

      Army, Priscilla W (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
      This thesis examines the implementation of official propaganda issued by the National Socialist regime during the years following Adolf Hitler's rise to power in 1933 up through 1945. By analyzing two very different mediums ...
    • Background subtraction by disparity warping 

      Liu, John H. (John Hau-Han), 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
    • Bacteria mediated heat sinks 

      Hong, Vu Anh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
      Many applications, such as laser diode technology, utilize components (eg. resistors) which have performance characteristics heavily dependent on temperature, and therefore, maintaining constant temperature is essential ...
    • Baffle material characterization for Advanced LIGO 

      Hunt, Cassandra R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
      The transition to Advanced LIGO introduces new sensitivity requirements for the LIGO interferometers. When light scatters away from the main laser beam, then scatters off the beam tube and returns to the main beam, noise ...
    • Balancing a two-wheeled Segway robot 

      Bageant, Maia R. (Maia Reynolds) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
      In this thesis, I designed and constructed hardware for a two-wheeled balancing Segway robot. Because the robot could not be balanced based on a control system derived from the original analytical model, additional system ...
    • A ball-on-beam project kit 

      Rosales, Evencio A. (Evencio Alex), 1982- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
      An apparatus of the classical ball-on-beam problem was designed and constructed to be used as a pedagogical instrument in feedback courses. The aesthetic and mechanical design incorporated economical materials to make kits ...
    • Bamboo as a material for reinforcing concrete 

      Chow, H. K (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1914)
    • Bandwidth maximization of a single degree of freedom magnetic suspension system 

      Aggarwal, Sanjay Kumar (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
    • Barium uptake by marine diatoms. 

      Libicki, Charles Melvin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1978)
    • Barriers to growth of the Hong Kong software industry 

      Seid, Jacob J. (Jacob Julius), 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
    • Basic communication framework for a robotic device for the inspection of nuclear reactor piping structures 

      Roth, Meagan (Meagan Ashley) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
      Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) have a wide variety of underwater applications. Controlling these robots wirelessly in an aquatic environment is challenging because of signal attenuation. This challenge is made even more ...
    • Basic factors affecting smooth engine idling 

      Rosen, Arthur S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1958)
    • A battery powered near infrared (NIR) camera for the MIT HelioDome 

      Molina, Keith M. (Keith Martin) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
      Research in advanced fenestration systems has led to the development of the Heliodome project at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Daylighting Laboratory. The MIT Heliodome project is dedicated to goniophotometry ...
    • Bayesian modeling of microwave foregrounds 

      Rahlin, Alexandra Sasha (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
      In the past decade, advances in precision cosmology have pushed our understanding of the evolving Universe to new limits. Since the discovery of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation in 1965 by Penzias and Wilson, ...
    • Bead manipulation to enable electrically controlled wire braiding 

      Isaac, Alexxis (Alexxis R.); Cartman, Makai (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
      Litz wire bundles are highly effective at enhancing the current carrying capacity and limiting the losses of electronic devices up to MHz frequencies due to the pattern in which the individual wires are braided in the ...
    • Beamforming performance enhancement by adaptive hyperbola array shape estimation 

      Liu, Michael Kaiping. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2020)
      Analysis of U.S. Navy Ice Exercise 2016 (ICEX16) data, through a collaboration with MIT Lincoln Laboratory, demonstrated that towed array curvature commonly exhibited heading differences up to 100° and never maintained ...
    • The behavior of Fe3+ coordination in alginate-catechol networks 

      Marzen, Stephanie E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
      Mussel byssal threads allow mussels to remain steadfast on ocean rocks despite ocean turbulence, facilitated by the simultaneous elasticity and hardness of the byssus coating. Inspired by the metal-coordination chemistry ...
    • The behavior of O - C curves for contact binaries in the Kepler catalog 

      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 ...
