Development of a framework to account for uncertainty sources in modeling toxic concentrations in the Niagara River
The Niagara River is an important natural resource for drinking water and inexpensive hydroelectric power production. However, the quality of its water is less than pristine. Past lax management of toxic waste has left ...
Terahertz spectroscopy of semiconductor nanostructures
Electromagnetic waves centered at a frequency of 1 terahertz (THz) lie between the realms of photonics and electronics. Only recently have techniques been established to generate and detect electromagnetic waves in this ...
Hybrid semiconductor nanomagnetoelectronic devices
The subject of this dissertation is the exploration of a new class of hybrid semiconductor nanomagnetoelectronic devices. In these studies, single-domain nanomagnets are used as the gate in a transistor structure, and the ...
Enhancement of the low frequency sound absorption of porous materials by addition of a thin high flow-resistivity cover layer
The general performance of a porous material against a rigid backing shows very good absorption qualities at high frequencies, but at lower frequencies, where the thickness becomes much less than a wavelength of sound, the ...
Robust microbial fabrication of plant pharmaceuticals: Complexities and solutions
Abstract not available.
Degradation of 17alpha-ethinylestradiol in wastewater treatment systems
The existence and persistence of estrogenic chemicals in aquatic environments is a problem that may affect public and ecosystem wellness. For this reason, it is of major concern, and being investigated by those in the field ...
The use of mass spectrometry in biomarker discovery and molecule identification
Over the past few years greater emphasis has been placed on biomarker discovery. Of most importance is identifying potential protein biomarkers of disease in biological fluids. Identification of such biomarkers would allow ...
Improving thermal interface materials through the liquid component
Thermal interface materials for thermal conduction of excess heat from microelectronics have been developed and evaluated. The optimum carbon black content of the thixotropic paste based on polyol ethers is 2.40 vol.%. The ...
Photosensitizers in photodynamic therapy (PDT) and photodynamic antimicrobial chemotherapy
As the African American community witness thousands dying per year from cancer, many advances are being made in the arena of cancer treatment. Although the current methods of cancer treatment are considered viable, the ...
Electrochemical performance and discharge mechanism of silver vanadium phosphorous oxide
Silver Vanadium Phosphorous Oxide (SVPO), Ag 2 VO 2 PO 4 , as an active electrode material has several good electrochemical properties which are large capacity, high current capability, and effective delivery of high current ...
