Electrical transport in a single-electron transistor coupled to a tunable environment
A novel model system is developed to study the effects of the environment on transport properties of a superconducting single-electron transistor (S-SET). The impedance of a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) 50 nm below ...
Development of an ion/electron plasma spectrometer
This thesis details the development of the Miniaturized Electrostatic DUal top-hat Spherical Analyzer (MEDUSA) instrument, including calibration, simulation, and data processing software. MEDUSA combines two-species ...
The mathematical theory and applications of biorthogonal Coifman wavelet systems
In this thesis, we present a theoretical study of biorthogonal Coifman wavelet systems, a family of biorthogonal wavelet systems with vanishing moments equally distributed between scaling functions and wavelet functions. ...
Mid-infrared laser absorption-based sensors for trace gas detection using difference-frequency generation
Real-time, compact, laser absorption-based sensors for trace gas detection have been developed. Difference-frequency generation in a periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN) crystal pumped by two compact lasers, a ...
Longitudinal magnetic media with soft magnetic under-layers read with magneto-resistive heads
Keepered media refers to traditional magnetic media with the addition of a soft magnetic "keeper" layer adjacent to the recording layer. Numerous recent reports have shown performance improvements associated with keepered ...
Ventricular interaction in a closed-loop model of the canine circulation
A mathematical model of the dynamic interaction between the ventricles over a complete cardiac cycle is presented. The ventricles are modeled as a three-walled system, each of which is individually characterized by a ...
