EXCIMER LASER INTERACTION WITH ZINC OXIDE
When single crystal ZnO is exposed to 193-nm laser photons in vacuum at fluences below 100 mJ/cm
Atomic Jump Frequencies in Intermetallic Compounds Studied Using Perturbed Angular Correlation of Gamma Rays
Atomic jump frequencies were determined in a variety of intermetallic compounds through analysis of nuclear relaxation of spectra measured using the nuclear hyperfine technique, perturbed angular correlation (PAC) of gamma ...
CORRELATION BETWEEN IRRADIATION DAMAGE AND MICRO-MAGNETIC PROPERTIES FOR REACTOR STEELS
Magnetic domain structures are strongly influenced by material microstructures including crystal structures and defects. Correlations via microstructure between mechanical properties of steels and their magnetic properties ...
Compositional Dependence of Glass Corrosion due to the Crystallization of Nepheline
Vitrification of Hanford high-level nuclear waste is a complex process, which is of great significance to those residing in the state of Washington. One characteristic of the vitrified product, the chemical durability, can ...
CHARACTERIZING DISSOLVED GASES IN CRYOGENIC LIQUID FUELS
Pressure-Density-Temperature-Composition (PρT-x) measurements of cryogenic fuel mixtures are a historical challenge due to the difficulties of maintaining cryogenic temperatures and precision isolation of a mixture sample. ...
CAPILLARY FLOW OF LIQUID METALS IN BRAZING
Capillary flow is driven or controlled by capillary forces, exerted at the triple line where the fluid phases meet the solid boundary. Phase field (PF) models naturally accommodate diffusive triple line motion with variable ...
MULTISCALE MODELING AND SIMULATION OF THE MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF THE DUAL PHASE STEELS: PARAMETRIC STUDY AND MICROSTRUCTURE OPTIMIZATION
The goal of this thesis is to investigate the relationship between microstructure properties and mechanical properties of dual phase (DP) steels to design advanced materials for automotive applications. In this research, ...
PROTEIN-BASED NANOFABRICS FOR MULTIFUNCTIONAL AIR FILTERING
With the fast development of economics and population, air pollution is getting worse and becomes a great concern worldwide. The release of chemicals, particulates and biological materials into air can lead to various ...
NANOSHEETS OF MgB2 AS A NEW CLASS OF 2D SEMICONDUCTOR
The discovery of two-dimensional semiconducting materials, a decade ago, spawned an entire sub-field within solid-state physics that is focused on the development of nanoelectronics. In this project, we conduct a theoretical ...
OPTOELECTRONIC PROPERTIES OF SELF-ASSEMBLED BINARY PORPHYRIN NANOSTRUCTURES
Porphyrins are structurally similar to light harvesting chromophores found in nature and to active sites in hemoglobins. As such, materials made of porphyrins are useful in a variety of applications such as photovoltaics, ...
