  • 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 ...
  • Kelly, Trevor S. (San Francisco State University, 2017)
    In this work we demonstrate coupled beam propagation dynamics in colloidal gold nanosuspensions. First we use an infrared (IR) probe beam (1064 nm) is guided by a low-power visible beam (532 nm) in a gold nanosphere or ...
  • McKeown, Daniel Frederick, Jr. (San Francisco State University, 2017)
    We conduct a detailed study of the evolution of dark matter density as a function of radius for the most massive galaxy halos in the Illustris Simulation. The dark matter density profiles of these clusters are fit using ...
