  • Bounds, Jeffrey Keith (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Dwyer, Sheila E. (Sheila Elizabeth) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Direct detection of gravitational waves will require earth based detectors to measure strains of the order 10-21, at frequencies of 100 Hz, a sensitivity that has been accomplished with the initial generation of LIGO ...
  • Bergman, Keren (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1994)
  • Flynn, Michael O (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    We compute the non-contact friction force induced between two isotropic planar dielectric slabs which obey a plasma model dielectric function using scalar electromagnetism. All computations are carried out at zero temperature. ...
  • Peyronel, Thibault (Thibault Michel Max) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The fundamental properties of light derive from its constituent particles, photons, which are massless and do no interact with each other. The realization of interactions between photons could enable a wide variety of ...
  • Zeng, Bei, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    The discovery of quantum error-correcting codes (QECCs) and the theory of fault-tolerant quantum computation (FTQC) have greatly improved the long-term prospects for quantum communication and computation technology. ...
  • Abolfathe Beikidezfuli, Salman (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Quantum complexity theory is important from the point of view of not only theory of computation but also quantum information theory. In particular, quantum multi-prover interactive proof systems are defined based on ...
  • Preda, Daniel C. (Daniel Ciprian), 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
  • Yuen, Henry, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    A recent sequence of works, initially motivated by the study of the nonlocal properties of entanglement, demonstrate that a source of information-theoretically certified randomness can be constructed based only on two ...
  • Lyubomirsky, Ilya (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1994)
  • Pasquini, Thomas A., Jr (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Recent developments in atom optics have brought Bose-Einstein condensates within 1 pm of solid surfaces where the atom-surface interactions can no longer be ignored. At long- range, the atom-surface interaction is described ...
  • Eldar, Yonina Chana, 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    Quantum signal processing (QSP) as formulated in this thesis, borrows from the formalism and principles of quantum mechanics and some of its interesting axioms and constraints, leading to a novel paradigm for signal ...
  • Lin, Ziliang (Ziliang Carter) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Quantum simulations are the use of well controlled many-body quantum systems to simulate and solve other many-body quantum systems that are not understood. This thesis describes theoretical proposals and experimental ...
  • Greenbaum, Daniel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    We have studied the transport of magnetization and energy in systems of spins 1/2 on a lattice at high temperature. This work was motivated by recent experiments which observed "spin diffusion" among the dipolar coupled ...
  • Tan, Si Hui, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Discriminating between quantum states is an indispensable part of quantum information theory. This thesis investigates state discrimination of continuous quantum variables, focusing on bosonic communication channels and ...
  • Mello, Olivia L (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this thesis we present an optical and electronic setup that is capable of performing coherent state tomography. We fully characterize it in order to verify whether or not it will be capable to perform non-demolition ...
  • Schneider, Scott (Scott David), 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
  • Hoppe, Jens (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1982)
  • Lai, Yinchieh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1991)
  • 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 ...
