  1. 1. Synchrotrons as a Source for Soft X-Ray Lithography

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Synkrotronljusfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Thomas Joseph Grandsaert Jr; [2021]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : To move to lower modes in extreme ultra-violet lithography (EUVL) technology (and keep up with Moore’s law), new sources of soft X-ray radiation must be developed. It is clear from previous studies that Free Electron Lasers (FELs) can easily meet the in-band power requirements at these lower wavelength modes, however detailed studies for insertion devices (undulators) as a soft X-ray lithography (SXL) source are due for a re-evaluation.

  2. 2. Search for Higgs-like bosons through optimization of top-quark modelling

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Rafael Antonio Lopez; [2021]
    Keywords : ttbar; top quark modelling; BSM; 2HDM S; Higgs-like bosons; ATLAS; HWW; XSh; top estimation; top remodelling; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Accurate estimations of background processes associated with top-quarks are vital to studies concerned with finding new physics at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)at CERN. Search for Higgs-like bosons in the ATLAS experiment at LHC was performed by optimising the use of b-jet tagging algorithms and improving on tt backgroundmodelling. READ MORE

  3. 3. Application of Deep Q-learning for Vision Control on Atari Environments

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Beräkningsbiologi och biologisk fysik

    Author : Jim Öhman; [2021]
    Keywords : Reinforcement learning; Atari 2600; Deep Q-learning; Myopic Agents; Vision Control; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The success of Reinforcement Learning (RL) has mostly been in artificial domains, with only some successful real-world applications. One of the reasons being that most real-world domains fail to satisfy a set of assumptions of RL theory. READ MORE

  4. 4. Estimating progenitor mass and distance to Galactic Core-Collapse Supernova using neutrino observatory IceCube

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Manne Segerlund; [2021]
    Keywords : Supernova neutrinos; Supernova detection; Multi-messenger astronomy;

    Abstract : Galactic core-collapse supernovae is a once-in-a-lifetime event which could carry with it information about new physics. In this work a method for estimating the progenitor mass and distance using the IceCube Neutrino Observatory is presented. The mass is expressed through an intermediate parameter called compactness.

  5. 5. Understanding Rt using two-particle correlations by simulating proton-proton collisions in a Monte-Carlo model

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Johan Leygonie; [2021]
    Keywords : QGP; Quark-Gluon-Plasma; Rt; Particle Physics; Proton-proton Collisions; Pythia; Monte-Carlo Model; Bachelor s Thesis; Heavy-ion Collisions; ALICE; CERN; Relative Transverse Activity; Jets; Two-Particles Correlations; Quantum Physics; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The observable Rt is investigated in the Monte Carlo Model Pythia in order to better understand results from experimental data obtained in the ALICE detector at CERN. The purpose is to reproduce the experiment in a simulation and use the features proposed by Pythia to dig into the unexpected outcomes. READ MORE
