Luminescent materials play important roles in energy sciences, through solid state lighting and possible applications in solar energy utilization, and in biomedical research and applications, such as in immunoassays and ...
The physical and chemical properties of lipid bilayers determine their biological function as the main structural component of cell membranes. The response of lipid membranes to various perturbations is, in general, difficult ...
While experimental developments have enabled the study of core-hole dynamics in X-ray spectroscopy, theoretical methods for dynamical effects are still underdeveloped. Additionally, traditional theoretical methods are in ...
We used a rotating torsion balance to make the most precise laboratory search for equivalence-principle violation. We used a beryllium-aluminum composition dipole to complement our previous measurement with a beryllium-titanium ...
Single trapped ions are ideal systems in which to test atomic physics at high precision, which can in turn be used for searches for violations of fundamental symmetries and physics beyond the standard model, in addition ...
In order to make reliable predictions with controlled uncertainties for a wide range of nuclear phenomena, a theoretical bottom-up approach, by which hadrons emerge from the underlying theory of strong interactions, quantum ...
In this thesis, we present our study towards better understanding of the strongly coupled systems with extra matter content in the fundamental representation of some prescribed global symmetry group in the quenched ...
Entanglement between a single trapped <super>138</super>Ba<super>+</super> and a single spontaneously emitted photon is demonstrated. The system is used to measure a CHSH Bell signal of 2.303(36), verifying the violation ...
This dissertation describes the creation of the first matter-wave interferometer using ytterbium (Yb) atoms. Most of the experiments focus on a contrast interferometer geometry with a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) as ...
In this thesis the development and study of a method for a model-dependent measurement of the muon neutrino charged current (CC) single pion interaction's positive pion momentum spectrum is proposed. The measurement is ...
Holography is a powerful theoretical duality that relates quantum gravitational theories to non-gravitational theories in one less dimension. The most explored example of this tool is the correspondence between general ...
In this thesis, I focus on a few different applications of modern quantum field theory. I start with a model beyond the standard model: Little Flavor Theory and its related collider phenomenology. This model combines a ...
In this thesis, we present a theory of electron transport for unconventional superconductors. We focus on the superconducting properties of Sr<sub>2</sub>RuO<sub>4</sub>, which is a strong candidate for two dimensional ...
The Tokai-to-Kamiokande (T2K) experiment is an off-axis, long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment based in Japan. One of the largest sources of systematic uncertainty in the oscillation analysis is the uncertainty on ...

We describe formal work that relates the finite-volume spectrum in a quantum field theory to scattering and decay amplitudes. This is of particular relevance to numerical calculations performed using Lattice Quantum ...
The first-ever accurate measurement of a solid-state triple point in vanadium dioxide was made by performing simultaneous optical and transport measurements on a purpose-built nanomechanical strain apparatus that actively ...
