Regular and Irregular Signal Resampling
In this thesis,w e consider three main resampling problems. The first is the sampling rate conversion problem in which the input and output grids are both regularly spaced. It is known that the output signal is obtained ...
Long-distance Quantum Communication with Neutral Atoms
In this thesis, we develop quantitative performance analyses for a variety of quantum communication/ computation systems that have the common feature of employing neutral atoms for storage/processing and photons for qubit ...
Signal Processing in Biological Cells: Proteins, Networks, and Models
This thesis introduces systematic engineering principles to model, at different levels of ab-straction the information processing in biological cells in order to understand the algorithms implemented by the signaling ...
Investigation and Characterization of Single Hot Spot Laser-Plasma Interactions
Control of parametric laser-plasma interactions (LPI) is essential to the success of inertial confinement fusion (ICF). Through a research collaboration with the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), we have had the ...
Experiments with Interacting Bose and Fermi Gases
In the past few years, the study of trapped fermionic atoms evolved from the first cooling experiments which produced quantum degenerate samples to becoming one of the most exciting branches of current atomic physics ...
Accurate Nanofabrication Techniques for High-Index-Contrast Microphotonic Devices
High-refractive-index-contrast microphotonic devices provide strong light confinement allowing for sharp waveguide bends and small dielectric optical resonators. They allow dense optical integration and unique applications ...
Measuring Atomic Properties with an Atom Interferometer
Two experiments are presented which measure atomic properties using an atom interferometer. The interferometer splits the sodium de Broglie wave into two paths, one of which travels through an interaction region. The paths ...
Circuit-Aware System Design Techniques for Wireless Communication
When designing wireless communication systems, many hardware details are hidden from the algorithm designer, especially with analog hardware. While it is difficult for a designer to understand all aspects of a complex ...
Sensorimotor adaptations to perturbations of vowel acoustics and its relation to perception.

MIT American English Map Task
The American English Map Task (AEMT) database is a collection of 16 dialogues recorded using the Map Task protocol in July 1999. The subjects for the recordings were eight young adult females.
