An investigation into the role of metastable states on excited populations of weakly ionized argon plasmas, with applications for optical diagnostics.
Performing spectroscopic measurements of emission lines in relatively cold laboratory plasmas is challenging because the plasma is often neutral-dominated and is not in thermal equilibrium. However, these types of plasma ...
Tunneling Current and Topographical Measurements of Semiconducting Structures Relevant for Electronic Applications using Atomic Force Microscopy
This thesis is a combination of a synopsis of techniques used in Atomic Force Microscopy and its subsidiary uses as well as a record of experimental data taken using the instrument for two separate experiments. The first ...
Field Aligned Currents Derived from Pressue Profiles Obtained from TWINS ENA Images
Field aligned currents (FACs) are an important mechanism coupling the Earth's magnetosphere and ionosphere. The Two Wide-Angle Imaging Neutral-atom Spectrometers (TWINS) mission is the first stereoscopic neutral atom ...
Study of Sb surface doping and borosilicate glass gate dielectric for 4H-SiC MOSFETs
Silicon carbide (SiC) is a compound material with a wide bandgap, high critical electric field strength, high saturation drift velocity and high thermal conductivity, which makes it an outstanding material among wide ...
Microparticle Dynamics in Strongly Magnetized Low Temperature Plasmas
Dusty plasma systems consist of charged microparticles (usually called dust grains) embedded in a background plasma. The dust component can significantly modify the background plasma by collecting electrons and ions, thus ...
