3D Simulation of SEU in SiGe HBTS and Radiation Hardening by Design 

Varadharajaperumal, Muthubalan (2010-07-27)
This thesis presents 3-D simulation of Single Event Upset (SEU) in IBM 5HP and 8HP heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBT). SiGe HBT has been attractive for space applications because of its high performance. SiGe HBTs ...

3D Surface Reconstruction Based On Plenoptic Image 

Zhang, Haiqiao (2015-07-23)
Light- field cameras, also known as plenoptic cameras, have recently become available to the consumer market. Plenoptic cameras can collect the 4D light field information and represent it in a single photograph. This ...

3D Volume Reconstruction From 2D Plenoptic Data Using FFT-Based Methods 

Anglin, John Paul (2015-06-15)
Traditional imaging modalities produce images by capturing a 2D slice of the 4D light field. This is an inherently lossy conversion, as the angular information contained in the light field is ignored. Light-field imaging ...

3D-printed custom substratum to accentuate fast functional responses from microbial colonization 

Proaño-Peña, Gabriel Felipe (2018-12-03)
Recent studies have shown the feasibility of growing benthic organisms on customized substratum by using Additive Manufacturing (AM). Their proven capabilities to fabricate objects at high speed and with complex geometries ...

4-cycles systems of line graphs of complete multipartite graphs 

Sehgal, Nidhi (2008-08-15)
Here we investigate the necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of 4 - cycle systems of the line graphs of complete multipartite graphs.

A 4-Year Longitudinal Study of Children’s Competent Problem Solving in the Context of Positive Parenting and Peer Relationships 

Su, Shu (2016-08-05)
The ability to effectively, positively, and productively cope with social problems is considered one of the most important developmental tasks for children’s emotional and psychosocial adjustment. However there is a paucity ...

A 4.7 Tesla 4-Channel Transmit and Receive MRI Quadrature Birdcage Coil Design and Fabrication for Monkey Head imaging 

Sun, Xiaotong (2013-07-10)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an image modality used for clinical diagnosis as well as general imaging research. Functional magnetic resonance imaging or functional MRI (fMRI) is an MRI procedure that measures brain ...

40Ar/39Ar age variations among cogenetic feldspars from the Benson Mines, New York 

Gunn, James N. (2016-08-05)
The alkali feldspar group constitutes one the most common mineral groups of Earth’s crust. The 40Ar/39Ar method for dating potassium feldspars has proven to be a powerful analytical tool for evaluating low-temperature ...

40Ar/39Ar Ages of Feldspar and Muscovite from the Source and Detritus of the French Broad River, North Carolina 

Fan, Di (2016-08-08)
As the westernmost metamorphic belt of the Appalachians, the Blue Ridge has been the subject of many geochronology studies. The Blue Ridge experienced high-grade deformation and peak metamorphism during Taconic orogeny, ...

40Ar/39Ar Ages of Muscovite from the Western Blue Ridge and Talladega Belt, Georgia and North Carolina 

McDonald, Wayne (2008-05-15)
Radiometric age constraints regarding the timing of metamorphism in the western Blue Ridge province of the southern Appalachians have been too limited or uncertain to enable broader correlation and understanding of Taconian, ...

40Ar/39Ar Dating of Detrital Muscovite and Sediment Compositional Analysis of the Pottsville Formation in the Black Warrior basin in Alabama: Implications for Tectonics and Sedimentation 

Moore, Mitchell (2012-11-05)
The Greater Black Warrior basin, including the Cahaba and Coosa synclinoria and the Black Warrior basin, contains the thickest preserved accumulation (ca. 2 km) of sediment in the Appalachian-Ouachita foreland. 40Ar/39Ar ...

40Ar/39Ar Diffusion and Age Constraints in Muscovite from the Ruby Mountains, Northeastern Nevada 

Griffin, Kayla (2018-06-05)
Plutonic rocks exposed in the Basin and Range province are known to have experienced widespread extension and uplift at ca. 16.5 Ma. This extension is broadly coincident with timing of earliest volcanism of the Yellowstone ...

4D Strain from Tagged Magnetic Resonance Images by Unwrapping the Harmonic Phase Images 

Ambale Venkatesh, Bharath (2010-12-14)
Accurate assessment of ventricular function is clinically important. Tagged magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the modality of choice for calculating parameters such as torsion, rotation and strain that characterize ...

5-cycle systems 

Asplund, John (2014-04-25)
A k-cycle system of a multigraph G is an ordered pair (V,C) where V is the vertex set of G and C is a set of k-cycles, the edges of which partition the edges of G. A k-cycle system of lambda K_v is known as a lambda-fold ...
