    • A (HELIUM-3)-(HELIUM-4) DILUTION REFRIGERATOR 

      PEDERSON, DONALD OTIS (1971)
    • A 200 MeV proton spin polarimeter 

      Rice, James Allen (1983)
      The design, construction, and calibration of a 2 MeV proton spin polarimeter are described. This polarimeter monitors the beam at the transfer point between the linear accelerator and the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron ...
    • A 2D optical lattice for creating a 1-dimensional Fermi gas 

      Paprotta, Tobias (2009)
      Ultracold atomic gases can be prepared in laboratory environments with unrivaled control and purity. In one and a half decades the field has evolved from the first Bose condensates in dilute alkali gases to multiple species ...
    • A 3.0 meter liquid mirror telescope 

      Mulrooney, Mark (2000)
      We constructed a 3.0 meter diameter f/1.5 Liquid Mirror Telescope (LMT) between 1990 and 1994 at the NASA Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas. We have subsequently operated it since 1995 at the NASA Orbital Debris Observatory ...
    • A 3D microfluidic tumor model to study immune cell infiltration into solid tumors 

      Vu, Timothy Q (2017-08-07)
      The tumor microenvironment consists of other cells besides cancer cells, including immune cells like T-cells, natural killer cells, and macrophages. The roles of these infiltrated cells, however, are diverse and can be ...
    • 'A Almshouse Ting Dat': Developments in Poor Relief and Child Welfare in Jamaica during the Interwar Years 

      Roper, Shani (2013-07-24)
      This dissertation examines the development of poor relief and child welfare policy in Jamaica during the interwar years. It establishes the paradigms for accessing relief and how this influenced broader discussions of ...
    • A Ball and Beam Module for a Haptic Paddle Education Platform 

      Rose, Chad G.; Bucki, Nathan; O’Malley, Marcia K. (2017)
      Single degree of freedom force-feedback mechatronic devices, often called haptic paddles, are used in university curriculum as well as massive open online courses (MOOCs). While devices differ based on the goals of a given ...
    • A Bayesian hierarchical model for detecting associations between haplotypes and disease using unphased SNPs 

      Fox, Garrett Reed (2008)
      This thesis addresses using haplotypes to detect disease predisposing chromosomal regions based on a Bayesian hierarchical model for case-control data. By utilizing the Stochastic Search Variable Selection (SSVS) procedure ...
    • A Bayesian Integrative Model for Genetical Genomics with Spatially Informed Variable Selection 

      Cassese, Alberto; Guindani, Michele; Vannucci, Marina (2014)
      We consider a Bayesian hierarchical model for the integration of gene expression levels with comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) array measurements collected on the same subjects. The approach defines a measurement ...
    • A behavioral approach to positive interpolation 

      Mayo, Andrew (2005)
      We study interpolation by positive functions from a behavioural point of view. In particular, by considering the notion of mirror image data, the interpolation problem with passivity constraint is transformed into an ...
    • A binary encoded strip scintillation hodoscope for charged particle detection 

      Hoftiezer, John H. (1977)
      A position-sensitive scintillation hodoscope with reduced photomultiplier use has been built. The device is an attempt to develop an economical, fast counter with good timing characteristics, good spatial resolution, and ...
