Laman Trip, J.D.S. (author)
Open questions are whether life can be enabled in uninhabitable environments, and whether there is a limit to howmuch one can tune the speed of proliferation. Answering such questions has broad implications. It may reveal whether we can live in unforeseen habitats, whether we can slow down aging, and whether there are limits to lifespan. In this...

Erdmanis, J. (author)
The microscopic theory of superconductivity proposed by John Bardeen, Leon Cooper, and John Robert Schrieffer has been a vital milestone of condensed matter physics and the basis of development of new quantum technologies. It explained the superconductivity as an emergent phenomenon arising from weak phonon-mediated attraction of individual...

Daneshpour Aryadi, H. (author)
Tales of a Fountain of Youth and the invention of medicine illustrate our age-long obsession with two themes: life and death. What it takes to stay alive, and not to be dead, is a basic question in science that is easy to state, and yet difficult to address at a profound level. One striking feature of many living organisms is the ability of...

Zhang, Xiang (author)
Originated from the electron’s intrinsic angular momentum, magnetism has endowed various manipulations in both macroscopic and microscopic setups with another degree of freedom. Beyond the traditionally developed usage such as storage and sensors, there are enormous applications based on engineering and integrating magnetism into...

Pereira Machado, J.D. (author)
The reflections composing this thesis examine the usage and necessity of quantum theory, with an emphasis on systems featuring mechanical resonators. The first chapter introduces the quantum formalism, reviews the historical motivation for the quantization of harmonic oscillators, and presents a derivation of the interaction between the...

Shevchuk, O. (author)
The nonlinearity is essential for creation of non-classical states of the cavity or mechanical resonator such as squeezed or cat states. A microwave cavity can be made nonlinear by, for instance, adding Josephson junctions. The mechanical resonator is inherently nonlinear. The radiation pressure interaction between cavity and mechanical...

Agundez, R.R. (author)
In this thesis we study quantum transport in several one-dimensional systems with strong electronic interactions. The first chapter contains an introduction to the concepts treated throughout this thesis, such as the Aharonov-Bohm effect, the Kondo effect, the Fano effect and quantum state transfer. It also includes a brief historical...

Kako Joibari, F. (author)
Controlling magnetization on short time scales and/or small dimensions is a hot topic in the field of spintronics, owing to its fundamental physics and its applications for information technology. The most straightforward way to control magnetization is by using an external magnetic field. However, because of the technical limitation in using a...
