Numerical Modeling of the Formation and Evolution of Basement-Involved Structures in Wyoming
The Wyoming foreland is composed of basement-involved structures and intermontane basins formed during the Laramide Orogeny. Based on their sizes, structures in this area can be categorized into primary uplifts and secondary folds. Tectonic models suggest the primary uplifts form by sliding the crustal slabs along a deep-seated, large-scale regional ...
Microwave Spectroscopy on Two Dimensional Electron/Hole Gases
We develop new techniques to explore how electrons and holes in 2D semiconductors behave under microwave radiation in a low temperature regime. To observe cyclotron resonance (CR) in GaAs/AlGaAs quantum wells, thermal methods with the sample and thermometer sealed in a vacuum can in a 3He environment and reflection spectroscopy via power sensing are ...
Pure and binary associating fluids near active surfaces
The properties of associating fluids in contact with adsorbing surfaces are essential for the control of many processes of current industrial and scientific interest. Potential applications are diverse. Despite the need for a molecular understanding of interfacial properties, only in the past a few years have simple, accurate theories been developed ...
Production, properties and purification of carbon nanotubes
The production, properties and purification of the novel carbon nanotubes have been systematically studied. A fully automatic electric arc carbon nanotube generator is designed and constructed. The state of the electric arc is monitored and adjusted by a computer to maintain a stable growth condition. The optimum conditions for the high yield and ...
