    • 3PointTM: Faster Measurement of High-Dimensional Transmission Matrices 

      Chen, June (2020-04-23)
      A transmission matrix (TM) describes the linear relationship between input and output when a coherent wavefront passes through a scattering medium. Measurement of the TM enables numerous applications, such as focusing light ...
    • 4-Field Galerkin/least-squares method for polymer flows 

      Wang, Xiruo (2004)
      In this thesis, a new finite element method, 4-field Galerkin/Least-Squares method, is presented to solve viscoelastic flow problems. The 4-field GLS naturally includes the SUPG and PSPG terms to stabilize the oscillations ...
    • 422 nm laser 

      Simien, Clayton Earl (2005)
      A 422 nm laser was constructed for the purpose of studying a strontium ultra-cold neutral plasma. Since strontium ions have atomic lines in the visible, we can optically image the plasma via the 88 Sr+ 2S1/2 → 2 P1/2 ...
    • 461nm laser for studies in ultracold neutral strontium 

      Saenz, Aaron D. (2005)
      A 461 nm laser was constructed for the purposes of studying ultracold neutral strontium. The dipole-allowed 1 S0 → 1P1 transition at 460.862 nm can be used in laser cooling and trapping; optical imaging, Zeeman slowing, ...
    • 5/2 state in high election density gallium arsenide/aluminum gallium arsenide quantum well 

      Zhang, Chi (2010)
      This Master of Science Thesis is concerned with electronic transport in the higher Landau levels (LL) in a two-dimensional electron system, where novel many-body electronic phases have been observed. Particular attention ...
    • 5alpha-cholest-8(14)-en-3beta-ol-15-one. Studies on its metabolism in cultured cells and male baboons. (Volumes I and II) 

      Pajewski, Thomas Nikolaus (1989)
      5$\alpha$-Cholest-8(14)-en-3$\beta$-ol-15-one is a potent inhibitor of cholesterol biosynthesis which has been found to have significant hypocholesterolemic action upon oral administration to rodents and nonhuman primates. ...
    • 66 ° N 

      Hofstede, Nicholas Anton (2007)
      '66°N' is the design for a large-scale ecotourism hotel that takes advantage of dynamic and shifting environmental conditions of Greenland to visually and physically register the changes in the fragile arctic environment. ...
    • 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 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 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 ...
    • A blood flow model for sickle cell anemia 

      Nicholas, Dianne Wheatley (1974)
      A mathematical model has been developed to simulate the time average blood flow throughout the circulatory system of the human body. It was assumed that whole blood obeyed Cassons equation and the flow properties were ...
    • A Branch and Cut Approach to the Feedback Vertex Set Problem 

      Bell, Nick (2018-11-29)
