Confinement, topography, universality, and non-scaling effects in the specific heat and superfluid density of helium-4 near the superfluid transition
The properties of bulk systems at a second order phase transition, in particular the superfluid transition of liquid helium, have been very well studied both theoretically and experimentally. Additionally, theoretical ...
Studies of two-dimensional finite-size effects on the superfluid density of helium-4 confined between two silicon wafers
Measurements of the superfluid fraction of 4 He in films of finite lateral extent are reported in this study. These are done by confining 4 He between two silicon wafers which are patterned with small channels 9.4 nm high, ...
A study of process variations and their impact analysis in RF circuits
This thesis presents an in-depth empirical research to understand the impact of process variations in RF Circuits. We present a hierarchical two phase approach to study the impact of process based variations on device ...
Charge noise induced decoherence in coupled Cooper-pair Boxes
Charge fluctuations originating from gate bias and background traps can adversely affect a Cooper-pair Box (CPB) charge qubit. It has been suggested that two strongly capacitively coupled CPBs can help significantly suppress ...
Factors influencing organizational vicarious learning mechanism effectiveness
Vicarious learning allows an individual to modify their actions through observing others' behavior and the resulting consequences. As organizations become larger it becomes increasingly difficult to share lessons learned ...
