  • Sullivan, Peter William (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Optical time-domain astronomy is in the midst of significant developments due to new instruments, data processing techniques, and space missions. The Kepler mission has identified thousands of exoplanet systems with the ...
  • Chudzicki, Christopher A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    We present results from two treatment / control experiments in the 8.MReV: Mechanics ReView massive open online course (MOOC) run on edX.org during summer 2014. We compare the efficacy of physics homework problems: (1) ...
  • Bodiya, Timothy Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis describes the theory and experimental implementation optomechanically induced transparency utilizing ultra low loss mechanical oscillators and high laser power to achieve extremely strong optical induced ...
  • Murskyj, Mykola (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    One of the fundamental questions in quantum physics is whether measurements reveal pre-existing values. Leggett and Garg derived an inequality that is satisfied by systems featuring both macroscopic realism and non-invasive ...
  • Ge, Yufei, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Trapped ions are a promising approach to quantum computation. This approach uses a qubit state which is the atomic state and quantum motional state of a trapped ion to encode information, and uses laser-ion interactions ...
  • Varma, Mukund Madhav (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Measurements of two-particle angular correlations between unidentified charged particles and [phi]-mesons are shown over a wide pseudorapidity range ([delta] [eta] < 2) in pPb collisions. The data, collected during 2013 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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.
  • 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 ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
