• #### Fullerene triplet states in solution ﻿

(1998)
Triplet state pre-equilibration by reversible energy transfer has been observed by transient-absorption spectroscopy in mixed toluene solutions of C70 and C60 and of C70 and C60(CH 3)2. The equilibrium constants governing ...
• #### Fullerenol radical anions ﻿

(2004)
The first exhaustive purification and characterization of fullerenol samples, prepared by reaction of C60 in toluene with NaOH solution using tetrabutylammonium hydroxide as a phase transfer catalyst, have been performed. ...
• #### Fully Integrated CMOS-Compatible Photodetector with Intrinsic Gain and Red-Green-Blue Color Selectivity ﻿

(2014-04-21)
Currently, image sensors are hybrid devices, combining semiconductor photodiodes with off-chip color filters of different materials to convert wavelength-selected light into useful photocurrent. Here we demonstrate a fully ...
• #### Fully integrated single-walled carbon nanotube thermoplastic composites ﻿

(2004)
The development of composites of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) with thermoplastics requires methods for good dispersion and achieving good interaction between SWNTs and the matrix. This thesis presents a new method ...
• #### Fully transitive polyhedra with crystallographic symmetry groups ﻿

(1990)
This dissertation sets forth a method for classifying, up to euclidean similarity, fully-transitive polyhedra which have crystallographic symmetry groups. Branko Grunbaum's definition of polyhedron is used, in which the ...
• #### Function Shipping in a Scalable Parallel Programming Model ﻿

(2012)
Increasingly, a large number of scientific and technical applications exhibit dynamically generated parallelism or irregular data access patterns. These applications pose significant challenges to achieving scalable ...
• #### Functional and structural studies of influenza B virus hemagglutinin ﻿

(2013-09-16)
Influenza A and B viruses are major causes of seasonal flu epidemics each year. Hemagglutinin (HA) mediates the binding of virus to host cell and the fusion with host membrane. The crystal of HA in complex with antibody ...
• #### Functional data classification and covariance estimation ﻿

(2009)
Focusing on the analysis of functional data, the first part of this dissertation proposes three statistical models for functional data classification and applies them to a real problem of cervical pre-cancer diagnosis; the ...
• #### Functional German grammar: A pedagogical application of Fleming's "Communication Analysis" (Ilah Fleming) ﻿

(1995)
In her Communication Analysis (1988) Ilah Fleming developed a model of language analysis that treats all strata of language as a network of interplay. Through the application of her philosophy and methodology to language ...
• #### Functional inference of conductances in the LGMD neuron ﻿

(2013-08-27)
This thesis develops an approach to determine spatially-varying ionic channel conductances throughout the dendrites of the LGMD neuron from distal transmembrane potential recordings in response to distributed subthreshold ...
• #### Functional representation and manipulation of shapes with applications in surface and solid modeling ﻿

(2013-09-16)
Real-valued functions have wide applications in various areas within computer graphics. In this work, we examine three representation of shapes using functions. In particular, we study the classical B-spline representation ...
• #### Functional tissue engineering of the temporomandibular joint disc ﻿

(2008)
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders arise from disease or trauma and may result in degeneration of the soft tissues. Tissue engineering may provide a solution to disorders of the TMJ without the side effects seen with ...
