Biomedical studies of single -walled carbon nanotubes using near-infrared fluorescence
Experimental studies will be described aimed at providing a scientific foundation for the use of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) in biomedical applications. SWNTs have been found to be a unique class of nanoscale ...
Single photon photoassociation in a lithium-7 BEC near a Feshbach resonance
The rate of photoassociation (PA) determines how quickly molecules form from atoms illuminated by a resonant laser pulse. Knowledge of limits of this molecular formation rate provide a fundamental component on the maximum ...
Coupled simple exclusion process models
This study investigates problems in the overall context of intracellular particle transport using coupled simple exclusion processes to construct mathematical models of systems under consideration. Nonequilibrium statistical ...
Gold nanorods: Synthesis, structural manipulation, and self -assembly
This work describes methods for the synthesis, structural manipulation, and self-assembly of one-dimensional gold nanostructures. The thesis begins with an efficient technique for the synthesis and separation of gold ...
Transport phenomena in molecular-scale devices
The physics of atomic-scale systems is a subject of considerable interest, from both a basic-science and an engineering standpoint. We discuss three sets of experiments, each designed to elucidate a particular aspect of ...
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 ...
