  • Zheng, Haoxuan, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Precision cosmology has made tremendous progress in the past two decades thanks to a large amount of high quality data from the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), galaxy surveys and other cosmological probes. However, most ...
  • Shen, Yichen, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Humankind has long endeavored to control light. In modern society, with the rapid development of nanotechnology, the control of light is moving toward devices at micrometer and even nanometer scales. At such scales, ...
  • Schram, Matthew Christopher (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    The conventional notion of coherent atom-surface scattering originates from the existence of Bragg peaks in elastic scattering. The helium atom acts as a quantum mechanical matter wave that is coherent with itself; the ...
  • Ruangsri, Uchupol (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Since Einstein proposed the theory of general relativity (GR) as a theory of gravity, it has passed all experimental checks and tests. Until recently, all of these tests have been done in the weak gravity limit. The first ...
  • Roberts, Daniel Adam (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    This thesis focuses on the relationship between black holes in holography, chaos in strongly-coupled quantum systems, and the computational complexity of holographic states. By directly considering the time evolution of ...
