Axionlike Dark Energy and Particle Decay in theFuture of the Accelerating Universe
(Vanderbilt University. Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, 2021-04-30)
The 1998 discovery that the universe was accelerating in its expansion has yet to be explained theoretically, meriting the continual theoretical and observational study of this phenomena. In this thesis, we undergo a ...
Analytic Solutions of Two Electrons in Harmonic Confinement in an Optical Cavity
(Vanderbilt University. Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, 2021-12)
The possibility to control quantum systems with photons has stimulated recent interest in the study of quantum optical systems. While simple classical quantum systems admit well-known solutions, analysis of light-coupling ...
Expected Host Galaxy Properties of PTA Detectable Massive Black Hole Binaries
(Vanderbilt University. Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, 2021-12-06)
Massive black hole binaries (MBHB) produce gravitational waves (GW) that will be detectable with pulsar timing arrays within the next few years. We determine the properties of the host galaxies of MBHB at the time they are ...
