Nanoshells in vivo imaging using two-photon excitation microscopy
This thesis describes the development and optical characterization of near infrared (NIR) gold nanoshells for the use as luminescent contrast agents for applications in small animal blood vessel imaging. Two types of ...
Higher-order analogues of genus and slice genus of classical knots
We define invariants analogous to the genus and slice genus of knots in S3. For algebraically slice, genus one knots, we define the differential genus, denoted dg, and we prove it is independent of the Alexander polynomial ...
