• #### 14-18 MeV total neutron cross sections of hydrogen atom, hydrogen, lithium-7, beryllium-9, boron-10, boron-11, carbon-12, carbon-16, magnesium, aluminum-27, and sulfur-32 ﻿

(1953)
Measurements of total neutron cross sections for nuclei using fast neutrons of various energies have been previously reported. Several of these used neutrons which were not monoenergetic. However, with the advent of ...
• #### 1D and 2D Methods for Modeling Floodplains under Storm Surge Conditions ﻿

(2011)
This study evaluates a 1D and a 2D method for analyzing the combined effect of inland rainfall and hurricane-induced storm surge on a coastal floodplain. Horsepen Bayou near Clear Lake, southeast of Houston, Texas is ...
• #### 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene reduction by hydrogenase in Clostridium acetobutylicum ﻿

(2003)
Unique genetic modifications to C. acetobutylicum altered the level of hydrogenase expression, allowing study of the resulting effects on the 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) reduction rates to be possible. A strain designed ...

(2015-12-04)
Recently, the emergence and development of 2D materials with various optical and electrical properties has opened up new routes for electronic and optoelectronic device fabrication based on atomically thin layers. For ...
• #### 2D Optoelectronics: Challenges and Opportunities ﻿

(2015-12-17)
Indium Selenide (InSe) is one of atomically layered 2D materials attracting broad interests recently, because of its good optoelectronic properties. Based on the challenges of 2D optoelectronics, several topics will be ...
• #### 2D timelapse and 3D fluorescence microscopy with applications to vascular tissue engineering ﻿

(1998)
Part of the definition given to the new emerging science discipline of tissue engineering is the understanding of the structure-function relationships at the cellular level. In this context it is important for vascular ...
• #### 3-body breakup of HE_ ﻿

(1963)
The d(p,2p)n reaction has been studied using the recently constructed angular correlation chamber at Rice University. The two protons from the reaction have been observed for incident proton energies of 5.0, 9.0, and 10.5 ...
• #### 3-D segmentation and volume estimation of radiologic images by a novel, feature driven, region growing technique ﻿

(1992)
Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging is a 3-D, multi-slice, radiological technique that acquires multiple intensities corresponding to each voxel. The transverse relaxation time, T$\sb1$, and the axial relaxation time, T$\sb2$, ...
• #### 3.4 centimeter cyrogenic parametric amplifier system for radio astronomy ﻿

(1970)
A low-noise microwave receiver was designed and fabricated to provide the necessary sensitivity to detect the helium 3 line. In order to achieve ultra-low noise amplification in the input states of this receiver, cascaded ...
