Thin-film Interference for Surface Plasmon Resonance System and Ultra-thin Film Ultraviolet Super Absorber Structure
Thin-film interference is the basic mechanism of surface plasmon resonance system and ultra-thin film ultraviolet super absorber structure. In optical interference, the reflection and refraction of light occurred between ...
Natural language summarization of text and videos using topic models
Probabilistic topic models have recently become the cornerstone of unsupervised exploratory analysis of text documents using Bayesian statistics. The strength of the models lie in their modularity--random variables can be ...
Synthesis, Characterization, and Spectroscopic Studies of Two-Dimensional Rare-Earth Oxychloride and InGaAs Thin Films
The scaling down of device components to allow for increased transistor density is the mainstay for the integration of products with higher computing power compacted into smaller packages. The doubling of transistors that ...
Fabrication and characterization of micro- /nano structures for nanophotonic applications
The objective of this thesis is finding and developing fabrication methods to provide background techniques for potential applications with nanomaterials. The inclined UV lithography has announced to make three-dimensional ...
Chemical and Biological Attenuation Methods for Bacterial Mediated Gene Delivery
The development of nonviral vectors for safe and effective gene delivery system is acquiring significant consideration at the present time. Ideally a nonviral vector must overcome the barrier of extracellular milieu, ...
Self-Assembling Organic Nanopores as Synthetic Transmembrane Channels with Tunable Functions
A long-standing goal in the area of supramolecular self-assembly involves the development of synthetic ion/water channels capable of mimicking the mass-transport characteristics of biological channels and pores. Few examples ...

Using Monte Carlo Simulations to Study Bulk and Interfacial Properties of Ionic Fluids
In this dissertation we explain our efforts to understand the liquid-vapor saturation properties and wetting properties of pure ionic liquids using Monte Carlo simulations. The calculations are performed using the ...
Porous Silicon and Denim Fiber Bundle Characterization
My thesis research aims to characterize and exploit materials in an efficient, rapid, non-destructive manner. Part I of this document summarizes my research on porous silicon (pSi) design, fabrication, and surface modification ...
Statistical models for visual search process
Visual foraging is investigated by examining the nature of statistical distributions underlying human search strategies. Eye movements uninfluenced by scene perception or higher level cognition tasks are used to generate ...
