  • Lamstein, Josh (San Francisco State University, 2017)
    This thesis discusses three experiments on light propagation and beam dynamics in biological media. In the first, a gaussian laser beam transmits through a solution of human red blood cells (RBCs) in a guided manner with ...
  • Kotowski, Lisa Michelle (San Francisco State University, 2017)
    This thesis explores a resonant cavity perturbation technique to accurately measure infant body composition in the radio frequency regime. Infant body composition is an important marker of immediate and lifelong health; ...
  • Zhang, Chensong (San Francisco State University, 2017)
    This thesis is concerned with the optical trapping and analysis of biological specimens. The change in momentum of light due to the interaction between light and matter generates force. Optical trapping permits the ...
  • Parkar, Gaurang (San Francisco State University, 2017)
    In this thesis we study properties of quantum chaos in context of AdS/CFT. We start off with a discussion of the origins of black hole physics and AdS/CFT, then discuss the relation between gravity and entanglement and ...
  • Nelson-Isaacs, Sky E. (San Francisco State University, 2017)
    I review the derivations of equations of motion for open bosonic and supersymmetric strings using the Polyakov action. I perform standard calculations on Lorentz generators and Virasoro operators, and derive the numbers ...
