THE LUNAR EXOSPHERE
Carbon Nanomaterials for Fibers, Photonics and Composites
This thesis investigates various carbon nanomaterials from the basic synthesis to the characterizations and applications in fibers, photonics and composites. The carbon nanomaterials we studied include graphene, graphene ...
Resonant Compton Scattering in Highly-Magnetized Pulsars
Soft gamma repeaters and anomalous X-ray pulsars are subset of slow-rotating neutron stars, known as magnetars, that have extremely high inferred surface magnetic fields, of the order 100-1000 TeraGauss. Hard, non-thermal ...
The structure and sequence of the single calmodulin gene of Drosophila melanogaster
The work described involves the isolation and characterization of the gene encoding the calmodulin protein in the dipteran species, Drosophila melanogaster. The two major protein coding exons, designated 2 and 3, had been ...
Energy levels in light nuclei
The recent application of the shell model theory to the energy level structure of light nuclei has made apparent a lack of experimental data concerning these nuclei. The impossibility of accurately criticizing the theory ...
The Spectrum of the Off-diagonal Fibonacci Operator
The family of off-diagonal Fibonacci operators can be considered as Jacobi matrices acting in .e2(Z) with diagonal entries zero and off-diagonal entries given by sequences in the hull of the Fibonacci substitution sequence. ...
The determination of a coefficient in a parabolic differential equation
Abstract Not Available.
A study of university timetabling that blends graph coloring with the satisfaction of various essential and preferential conditions
Constructing a satisfactory conflict-free semester-long timetable of courses and creating a similarly satisfactory conflict-free timetable for end-of-semester final examinations are two closely related and often difficult ...
Analysis of low frequency whistler wave occurrences in the night-side Venus ionosphere
This body of work deals with a detailed analysis of plasma, magnetic, and electric field data from Pioneer Venus Orbiter (PVO) to determine if the data are consistent with the possibility of lightning on Venus. This has ...
Diode laser kinetic spectroscopy of formyl
A tunable diode laser infrared high-resolution spectrometer was constructed to study the spectroscopy and kinetics of free radicals. A method for producing diode laser frequency scans which are several wavelengths long, ...
