A study of the dusty SMC HII region N88A
Results from the analysis of HST FOS, WFPC1, IUE, and CTIO 4m observations of the morphology, physical conditions, and chemical abundances in the unusually dusty H II region N88A in the Small Magellanic Cloud are presented. ...
Optical development of an ion/electron acceleration facility
This thesis details the optical development of an ion/electron accelerating facility at Southwest Research Institute which is currently being used to calibrate the Plasma Spectrometer for the Cassini Mission to Saturn. The ...
Neutron off-plane scattering of aligned membranes
Our group studies the interaction between antibiotic peptides and phospholipids. These peptides are known to form channels in the lipid membrane. With X-ray diffraction, oriented circular dichroism and in-plane neutron ...
Magneto-optical Kerr effect studies of magnetic micro-structures produced using SIMPA
Using the focused ion beam sputtering capabilities of Scanning Ion Microscope with Polarization Analysis (SIMPA), arrays of regular shaped particles with sizes in the order of 10$\mu$m are produced from a 35nm thick $\rm ...
A magnetic potential model for the interface of vertical-field tail-lobes with Venus' nightside ionosphere
Venus' nightside ionosphere may be characterized by two general magnetic field geometries. Most of the ionosphere is characterized by largely horizontal fields carried over across the terminator from the dayside. However, ...
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 ...
