  • A methodology to quantify risk of failure for dynamic robots 

    Wang, Albert Duan. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    Humans possess an innate sense of danger that guides the execution of extraordinary dynamic maneuvers. They can also use this sense to generate creative recovery strategies to eventually come to a safe stop. This capability ...
  • Non-contact ultrasound 

    Zhang, Xiang,Ph. D.Massachusetts Institute of Technology. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    This thesis explores the design, development, and evaluation of two novel non-contact ultrasound imaging methods: immersion ultrasound and optical ultrasound. Immersion ultrasound utilizes traditional piezoelectric elements ...
  • Radiative transport in transparent aerogels for solar thermal energy applications 

    Zhao, Lin,Ph. D.Massachusetts Institute of Technology. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    Solar-thermal energy conversion systems hold great promise to meet our diverse energy demand by a renewable source. Converting sunlight into thermal energy requires solar radiation to be absorbed and transformed into heat ...
