• #### Single-electron transistor: Effects of the environment and detecting electron motion in real time ﻿

(2003)
This thesis will be divided into two parts. In the first part, theory and results of a novel system in which a superconducting single-electron transistor (S-SET) coupled to a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) serving as ...
• #### Single-mode frequency-stabilized 1.083 micrometer ring lasers ﻿

(1995)
A single-mode, frequency-stabilized LNA ring laser has been developed which routinely provides output powers $\sbsp{\sim}{>}$300 mW at 1.083 $\mu$m when pumped with 5 W of the 514 nm output from an Argon ion laser. A ...
• #### Single-molecule FRET analysis of the dynamics of AMPA receptor ﻿

(2010)
Single-molecule fluorescence resonance energy transfer (smFRET) spectroscopy has advanced to become a powerful tool in characterizing biomolecules to the molecular level. In this thesis, the smFRET technique was utilized ...
• #### Single-particle absorption spectroscopy by photothermal contrast ﻿

(2014-11-21)
Independent characterization of absorption of nano-objects is fundamental to the understanding of non-radiative properties of light matter interaction. To resolve heterogeneity in the response due to local effects, orientation ...
• #### Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube Dynamics Simple and Complex Media ﻿

(2011)
Understanding the dynamics of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) in simple and complex environments is crucial for establishing potential application of nanotube architectures for materials and biosciences. In this ...
• #### Single-walled carbon nanotube-silicon nitride composites ﻿

(2005)
Colloidal processing methods were developed in order to disperse highly concentrated 1.0, 2.0, and 6.0 vol% single-walled carbon nantoube (SWNT)-Si 3N4 aqueous composite suspensions. Interparticle pair potentials were ...
• #### Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWNT) polymer composites & composite fibers ﻿

(2008)
With their potentially extraordinary mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties, Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWNT)/polymer composites and composite fibers may be the ultimate building blocks for next generation ...
• #### Single-walled carbon nanotubes: Functionalization, characterization and application ﻿

(2009)
With extraordinary material and physical properties, single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) attract a lot of research interest for both fundamental science and emerging applications. However, their realistic application ...
• #### Single-walled carbon nanotubes: Induced decomposition of peroxides and non-covalent encapsulation into water-soluble PEG-eggs ﻿

(2009)
This thesis presents two studies aimed of furthering the understanding of single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) chemistry for potential applications in composite and biological systems. In composite systems, SWNTs are used ...
• #### Singularities of subanalytic sets and energy minimizing maps ﻿

(1993)
This thesis studies some problems derived from differential topology and differential geometry by techniques developed from geometric measure theory, variational calculus, and partial differential equations. It consists ...
• #### Sisters in bonds: "Minnie's Sacrifice" ﻿

(1997)
During the nineteenth century, both black women and white women were at the mercy of the white patriarchy, albeit at differing degrees to and natures in which they experienced bondage, marginality, and empowerment. In ...
• #### Site amplification ﻿

(2006)
Site Amplification takes the role of site to the extreme by using design as a way to amplify the shifting conditions of a place. Such an approach aims to celebrate and harness these shifting intensities into a productive ...
• #### Site investigation and modeling of surface application for in situ bioremediation of JP-4 jet fuel ﻿

(1994)
Surface application offers an inexpensive, non-invasive alternative to injection wells and infiltration galleries for in situ bioremediation applications. The technology employs artificial recharge to create favorable ...
• #### Site/gesture ﻿

(1992)
Between the individual and the site exists a philosophical space wherein architecture defines the nature, the edge, of humankind's self understanding. Beyond the philosophical exists the physical reality of humankind's ...
• #### Six houses ﻿

(2001)
The series of Six Houses projects offer choices rather than making improvements along the way. The reason for offering these choices is that one choice can not take the place of the other, but rather refers to another. A ...
• #### Six major women pianists: Clara Schumann, Teresa Carreno, Myra Hess, Clara Haskil, Alicia de Larrocha, and Martha Argerich ﻿

(2001)
The six artists presented in this paper hold important places in the world of the performing arts. Their outstanding talent and perseverance have brought them world recognition. Clara Schumann, the pioneer of women pianists, ...
• #### Size analysis of fine material and related size-frequency distributions ﻿

(1963)
Four groups of naturally-occurring samples were analyzed for size distributions. Four samples with median sizes in the fine sand division (.2-.06mm) graphically approximated a normal distribution. Six samples with median ...
• #### Size-Controlled Synthesis of Monodispersed Gold Nanoparticles via Carbon Monoxide Reduction ﻿

(2011)
In this thesis an in depth analysis of nanoparticle synthesis utilizing carbon monoxide as a reducing agent is presented. Synthesized nanoparticle mono and polydispersity was examined via particle distribution profiles, ...
• #### Skelton's perspective: the maner of the world ﻿

(1966)
The popular and still current picture of the poet John Skelton -- scholar, satirist, priest and rogue -- is little, more than a "superficial epitome-effigy" of the man as he appears in his poetry. At the center of his work ...
• #### Skirting the house: The evolution of the women's home, 1890-1910 ﻿
