Nanoscale manipulation and studies of individual biomolecules and DNA-based nanostructures
Nanoscale manipulation of individual biomolecules, using such techniques as the atomic force microscope (AFM) and laser optical tweezers (LOT), has increased the scope and detail with which important biological interactions, ...
LFM-RCM: Toward a coupled description of the inner and outer magnetosphere
Numerical simulations of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) have led to reasonable descriptions of the general morphology and dynamics of Earth's magnetosphere. However, MHD is invalid in regions close to the Earth where gradient ...
Sheet fluorescence and annular analysis of ultracold neutral plasmas
This thesis describes sheet fluorescence and annular analysis in strontium ultracold neutral plasmas (UNPs). UNPs are interesting because they can be strongly-coupled, where strong-coupling indicates plasmas with Coulomb ...
A 2D optical lattice for creating a 1-dimensional Fermi gas
Ultracold atomic gases can be prepared in laboratory environments with unrivaled control and purity. In one and a half decades the field has evolved from the first Bose condensates in dilute alkali gases to multiple species ...
A 200 MeV proton spin polarimeter
The design, construction, and calibration of a 2 MeV proton spin polarimeter are described. This polarimeter monitors the beam at the transfer point between the linear accelerator and the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron ...
An ionization chamber technique for the measurement of the transverse spin dependence of the proton-proton total cross-section
High precision ionization chambers were designed end built to measure the transverse spin dependence of the proton-proton total cross-section difference in the 318 MeV to 8 MeV energy region. Severe microphonic noise was ...
