Graded Photonic Bandgap Structures and Applications
The development of periodic nanostructured materials with specific optical properties can significantly impact the development of optical based sensors. Moreover, the development of these structures in inexpensive polymer ...
A virial equation of state of associating systems based on wertheim's association theory
An equation of state of a gas provides a mathematical relation among the pressure, volume, temperatures, and the number of moles. Many modifications of the perfect gas equation of state have been introduced and the virial ...
Mesoscopic Conductance Fluctuations in Disordered Graphene
This thesis is focused on an experimental study of the fluctuations in the conductance of disordered graphene flakes. Conductance fluctuations (CF) are generated by varying either magnetic field (±8 T) or Fermi energy (via ...
Critical point coupling in confined liquid helium-4 near the superfluid transition
When two thermodynamic systems are in close proximity to each other some immediate questions arise such as "to what extent do the regions affect one another?" and "to what extent can these systems be considered isolated?" ...
Methods for early phase clinical development
We examine three issues in the design and analysis of clinical trials and early drug development. First, we adapt the commonly used single-arm, two-stage, phase II oncology clinical trial, in which the primary outcome is ...
(I)-Progress toward the synthesis of an ( S )-(+)-tylophorine analog for improved activity and functionalization (II)-Copper-catalyzed enantioselective intramolecular alkene hydroamination
Progress towards the synthesis of an ( S )-Tylophorine analog for further functionalization and bioavailability is presented in Chapter One. The key step involved a copper (II) catalyzed enantioselective alkene carboamination. ...
