  • Molnar, Momchil Emil (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    We present an automated algorithm for the detection of periodic sources in the K2 data sets. Fast discreet Fourier transformations are used to compute the Fourier spectra of the targets and two different detection algorithms ...
  • Moore, Sam, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    An alternative method for locking a second-harmonic generation (SHG) cavity on resonance is described and implemented. The usual method, Pound-Drever-Hall locking, is prone to long-term power fluctuations from power ...
  • Narayanan, Sruthi Annapoorny (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    There are indications that weak magnetic fields originating in the early Universe and magnified via magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) processes could cause perturbations in the thermodynamic state of the gas in the intergalactic ...
  • Newman, Elsie (Elsie S.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    This paper explores the impact of neutron backgrounds on the Ricochet experiment. The purpose of the Ricochet experiment is to determine the existence of sterile neutrinos via coherent neutrino-nucleus scattering. Coherent ...
  • Prabhu, Anirudh, S.B. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    The theory of cosmic inflation was proposed to address problems with Standard Big Bang cosmology. The theory suggests the existence of an epoch during which the universe underwent an exponential expansion, followed by an ...
