Development of injec table nanocomposite scaffolds of single -walled carbon nanotubes and biodegradable polymers for bone tissue engineering
Nanocomposites based on single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and poly(propylene fumarate) (PPF) were developed and characterized as injectable scaffold materials for bone tissue engineering. Similar to other synthetic ...
Compact models for nanophotonic structures and on -chip interconnects
Over the last few years, scaling in deep submicron technologies has shifted the paradigm from device-dominated to interconnect-dominated design methodology. Consequently, there is an increasing interest towards the ...
Sequential quantization for classification : the impact of structure and nonparametric estimates
Sequential quantization is a constrained quantization method in which elements of a real-valued vector are sequentially mapped (quantized) onto a finite set. These quantization systems are constrained in that they are not ...
Orthogonal approaches for studying glycosaminoglycan biopolymer
The evolution of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in eukaryotic species has been one of great biological mysteries. This thesis investigates the composition, rate of degradation and solution characteristics of aggrecan proteoglycan ...
