  • Cooper, Thomas (Thomas J.), Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    In this thesis we present several surveys of heavy element absorber characteristics at high redshift, gauging properties of diffuse intra- and intergalactic gas in the first several Gyr of the Universe. At z ~ 3.5, we study ...
  • Kong, Jian Feng (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    Transport phenomena in solids -- such as energy and charge flows in response to external fields -- is a subject of fundamental interest for solid state physics. Carrier transport exhibits a wide variety of intriguing and ...
  • Khoo, Jun Yong (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    The excellent electron properties of graphene, an atomically-thin material with record-high carrier mobility and gate tunability, make it central to modern nanoscience. However, the spin-orbit interaction (SOI) naturally ...
  • Schmookler, Barak (Barak A.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    Inclusive electron scattering experiments using fixed targets are an important tool for studying the structure of the nucleons. The electromagnetic structure of the proton, as encapsulated by its elastic form factors, can ...
  • Montag, Peter Katsumi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
    In this thesis we investigate the nature of magnetic reconnection using analytic and numerical methods. We consider configurations which are symmetric across the reconnection layer relevant to the Earth magnetotail, as ...
