(2016-07-07)The SeaQuest experiment is a fixed-target dimuon experiment currently running at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (FNAL). By utilizing the high-intensity, 120GeV proton beam delivered by the FNAL Main Injector ...
(2017-07-06)Quantum entanglement plays an important role in characterizing the property of many-body systems and quantum field theories. In this thesis, we study the quantum entanglement in (1+1)-dimensional critical systems and ...
Aspects of symplectic dynamics and topology: gauge anomalies, chiral kinetic theory and transfer matrices (2016-12-15)This thesis presents some work on two quite disparate kinds of dynamical systems described by Hamiltonian dynamics. The first part describes a computation of gauge anomalies and their macroscopic effects in a ...
Determination of local crystal symmetry in complex, multielement, ferroelectric perovskites and alloys (2018-12-07)Structural change arising from correlated lattice and charge interaction in complex, multi-element, crystals has a profound effect on their physical properties. Examples include charge ordering in complex oxides, polarization ...
Light scattering studies of magnetostructural phases in Mn3O4 and charge density wave melting in ZrTe3 (2018-04-18)In this thesis, variable-magnetic-field and variable-pressure Raman spectroscopy is used to study the magnetically ordered phases of magnetodielectric Mn3O4, as well as the pressure-induced charge-ordered to superconducting ...
Scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy of topological materials and heterostructures in thin films and devices (2020-04-06)This dissertation reports the results of scanning tunneling microscopy experiments probing the physics of thin films of topological materials. A 3D topological insulator Bi2Te3 and a 2D topological insulator WTe2, grown ...
Search for Diboson resonances in 8 tev and 13 tev proton-proton collisions at the large hadron collider with the atlas detector (2019-07-05)This thesis documents two searches for Diboson Resonances which were performed using data collected in 2012, 2015 and 2016 by the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. Three benchmark models are tested: a model ...
