The programming of Laplace's equation for solution by iteration on Whirlwind I
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1950) 
Progress towards cavity induced transparency
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)Inspired by electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT), cavity induced transparency (CIT) uses a cavity rather than a laser to couple a ground state with the excited state of a threelevel system. In this thesis, I ... 
Progress towards strong coupling between collisionally blockaded atoms and an optical cavity
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)In this thesis, I present the motivation and design for an experiment in which to probe the interactions between an atom and a single photon light field. I discuss the relevant technical considerations and many of the ... 
Propagation of gravitons in the shock wave geometry
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)In this thesis, I study propagation of gravitons in the shock wave geometry in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence, with the goal to uncover some constraint on the supergravity action in the AdS space. In studying ... 
Protection and fusing in advanced automotive electrical environment
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999) 
Pseudogoldstino to gravitino decay : an implication of multiple supersymmetry breaking
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)This thesis studies the decay of a pseudogoldstino 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 ... 
Pyroelectric crystalbased Xray diffractometer
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)We investigate the use of an Amptek CoolX Xray Generator for an instructional tool in the physics of xrays, as well as a source for xrays for crystal diffraction experiments. The xray source is a solidstate twophase ... 
The quadratic Zeeman effect in hydrogen
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1952) 
Quantum beat spectroscopy of acetylene
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1986) 
Quantum blackjack : quantum strategies and advantages in games with limited classical communication
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)In this thesis, we examine the advantages that quantum strategies afford in communicationlimited games. Inspired by the card game blackjack, we particularly focus on cooperative, twoparty sequential games in which a ... 
Quantum capacitance measurements of singlelayer molybdenum disulfide
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)Through this thesis, heterostructures composed of a thin layer of hexagonal boron nitride atop a monolayer of molybdenum disulfide were fabricated with the goal of measuring quantum capacitance and probing the transition ... 
Quantum codes on Hurwitz surfaces
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)Ever since the birth of the first quantum error correcting code, many error correcting techniques and formalism has been constructed so far. Among those, generating a quantum code on a locally planar geometry have lead to ... 
Quantum electrodynamics in a damped cavity
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1982) 
Quantum field theory of scalar cosmological perturbations
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)Using canonical quantization we show that the spectrum of the scalar cosmological fluctuations as calculated until now is not correct. We derive the correct expression for the spectrum, and show that our correct treatment ... 
Quantum mechanics on phase space : geometry and motion of the Wigner distribution
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)We study the Wigner phase space formulation of quantum mechanics and compare it to the Hamiltonian picture of classical mechanics. In this comparison we focus on the differences in initial conditions available to each ... 
Quantum noncontact friction in resonant dielectric media
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)We compute the noncontact 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. ... 
Quantum simulations with 8̳8̳Sr+̳ ions on planar lattice traps
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)Quantum simulations are the use of well controlled manybody quantum systems to simulate and solve other manybody quantum systems that are not understood. This thesis describes theoretical proposals and experimental ... 
Quantum state reconstruction and tomography using phasesensitive light detection
(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 nondemolition ... 
Quantum Systems Simulator
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000) 
Quark masses : an environmental impact statement
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)We investigate how the requirement that organic chemistry be possible constrains the values of the quark masses. Specifically, we choose a slice through the parameter space of the Standard Model in which quark masses vary ...
