  1. 1. Energy reconstruction with artificial neural networks on LDMX simulations

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Författare :Daniel Magdalinski; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Dark matter; LDMX; electromagnetic calorimeter; neural networks; convolutional neural networks; Physics and Astronomy;

    Sammanfattning : It is clear from evidence such as rotational curves and cosmic microwave background measurements that dark matter exists. The light dark matter experiment (LDMX) will search for dark matter in the sub-GeV range. It will do this using missing-momentum measurements of electrons interacting with a Tungsten target. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Nanoscale detection of insulin granule sub-structures using dSTORM imaging

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Atomfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Författare :Yu Hong; [2020]
    Nyckelord :islet β-cells; dSTORM imaging; Alexa Fluor 647; Physics and Astronomy;

    Sammanfattning : Diabetes mellitus is a global disease, mainly caused by insufficient insulin secre- tion from pancreatic islet β-cells. Insulin is stored in the granules of islet β-cells and released in response to extracellular stimuli e.g. glucose. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Test setup for LDMX HCal readout

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Författare :Joshua Greaves; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Dark matter; LDMX; dark photon; hadronic calorimeter; photomultiplier tube; Physics and Astronomy;

    Sammanfattning : It is evident from cosmological observations such as the Cosmic Microwave Background, and the motion of galaxies, that the universe consists of approximately 5 times more mass than visible matter can account for. The Light Dark Matter eXperiment (LDMX) will take a unique approach in its hunt for dark matter; it will look for missing momentum signals in electron collisions with a Tungsten target, and will be looking in the sub GeV energy range for evidence of dark matter interactions.

  4. 4. Characterization of InAs-Al semiconductor-superconductor hybrid devices

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Fasta tillståndets fysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Författare :Markus Aspegren; [2020]
    Nyckelord :quantum dot; superconductivity; quantum transport; josephson junction; spectroscopy; yu-shiba-rusinov; hybrid devices; sub-gap states; quantum computer; majorana bound state; bogoliubov quasiparticle; Physics and Astronomy;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis we study charge and spin transport through InAs-Al nanowire superconductor-semiconductor hybrid devices. We focus on assessing the quality of the InAs-Al contact interface when using a weak HCl acid to wet-etch the nanowire surface prior to metal evaporation. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Signal and Background Studies at 8 GeV for the Light Dark Matter eXperiment

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Författare :Péter György; [2020]
    Nyckelord :LDMX; Dark Matter; Light Dark Matter; 8 GeV; Physics and Astronomy;

    Sammanfattning : Light dark matter is a hypothesized form of dark matter in the 1 MeV to 1 GeV mass range. The Light Dark Matter eXperiment (LDMX) is an upcoming experiment to test the existence of light dark matter, by colliding an electron beam with a tungsten target and assembling a set of events that potentially indicate the existence of light dark matter.
