    • Fractional Fluxon Dynamics in Long Josephson Junctions 

      Rhoads, Lawrence Antonio; 0000-0002-7391-7333 (2020-12-16)
      In this thesis, I investigate the dynamics of fractional fluxons in two-gap Long Josephson Junctions (LJJs). Due to time reversal symmetry (TRS) breaking within the LJJ, a single fluxon may split into a bound pair of ...
    • Geometric Spinors 

      Gemmill, Jordan Thayer (2021-08-02)
      Geometric Algebra is a unique variant of what is otherwise known as Clifford Algebra. In this work we show that the geometric algebra provides better tools to visualize physical problems, benefited by our natural geometric ...
    • Lorentz Invariance in Loop Quantum Gravity 

      Her, Sou Thee (2020-04-28)
      From the principle of relativity, where the laws of physics is presumed to be the same in all inertial reference frames, we have Lorentz invariance. This invariance leads to rotational and boost invariance. These invariances ...
    • Oa1s and Oa2s RADIATIVE CORRECTIONS FOR W-BOSON PRODUCTION AT THE TEVATRON AND ATLAS EXPERIMENT 

      Teel, Matthew James; 0000-0002-4497-7708 (2022-05-31)
      In this thesis, we propose an approach for calculating W-Boson Transverse Momentum Dependent (TMD) distributions using the LHAPDF library with nCTEQ15, MSTW2008 and CT10 Parton Distribution Functions (PDF). We utilize ...
    • PARTICLE INTERACTIONS IN COMPACT OBJECTS AND THE EARLY UNIVERSE 

      Khan, Faiz Ahmad; 0000-0002-0208-2973 (2021-12-03)
      We show there is an effect of an extremely large magnetic field in highly dense media that has not been explored in prior work. We discuss the renormalizability of QED in such a medium. These extreme situations are found ...
    • Quantum Magnetic Collapse In Neutron Star Binary Systems 

      Brooks, Craig Lee; 0000-0003-1514-9652 (2019-05-14)
      Quantum magnetic collapse is a phenomenon that corresponds to the collapsing of stars due to the generation of high magnetic field. Such stars are highly magnetized objects (such as neutron stars) where the particle processes ...
    • Revisiting Neutron Star Physics Including Finite Temperature and Density Effects on the Medium 

      Jaramillo, Michael; 0000-0003-4089-3643 (2020-08-17)
      Neutron stars are highly compact stellar evolutionary endpoints whose formation and existence rely on a complex interplay between the overall hydrodynamic equilibrium and the local approach of quantum mechanics. The extreme ...
    • The Effect of Surface Plasmon Resonance on Bacteria Morphology 

      Ortega, David; 0000-0002-3004-2688 (2020-05-09)
      Cells are known to be affected significantly due to persistent exposure to electro- magnetic radiation. DNA can be damaged by electromagnetic waves in several ways that may lead to genetic changes. Cellular multiplication ...
    • The Lamb shift at finite temperature and density 

      Etienne, Thomas G.; 0000-0002-9676-5870 (2018-05-14)
      The Lamb shift is a well-known phenomenon that breaks the degeneracy in the 2S1/2 and 2P1/2 energy levels. The currently accepted experimental value is measured to be approximately equal to 1057.862 MHz, or 4.3795×10-6 ...
    • The magnetic moment of leptons at high temperatures 

      Mein, Holly Christine; 0000-0002-5851-419X (2019-05-14)
      The magnetic moment is a measure of the interaction of charged particles with the magnetic field. It depends on the mass of the particles. All charged particles have an intrinsic magnetic moment due to their intrinsic spin, ...
