Effects of pressure and temperature on the yield strength of tantalum and rhenium
The effects of pressure and temperature on the yield strength of tantalum and the effects of pressure on the yield strength of rhenium were investigated using ruby fluorescence. A new Raman system with a motorized stage ...
Modeling HIV-1 Infection in the Brain: The Effect of the Blood-Brain Barrier
reservoir. We also show that the basic reproduction number largely depends on the overall effectiveness of ART, but it is not strongly affected by the rate of drug penetration through the blood-brain barrier. The effectiveness of ART depends on both...
Growth of Semiconductor Thin Films by Pulsed Laser Deposition
(University of Missouri--Kansas City, 2016)
Pulsed ultraviolet light from a XeF excimer laser was used to grow thin films of zinc oxide and tin dioxide on (111) p-type silicon wafers within a versatile high vacuum laser deposition system. This pulsed laser deposition ...
Ab Initio Study of Amorphous Zeolitic Imidazolate Framework (A-ZIF) and Pyrophosphate crystals
Zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs) are a rapidly emerging class of versatile porous material with many potential applications. Here, we report the construction of an amorphous ZIF (a-ZIF) model from a near-perfect ...
Structure and Mechanical Properties of Cement and Intermetallic Compounds via ab-initio Simulations
Calcium silicate hydrates comprise a class of minerals formed synthetically during Portland cement hydration or naturally through various geological processes. The importance of these minerals is immense since they are the ...
Constraining the Major Merging History of Massive Galaxies: A Comprehensive Analysis of Close Pairs and Tidal Features Using Empirical and Simulated Data
Major galaxy merging is a fundamental aspect of the hierarchical structure-growth scenario of the universe, and it is theoretical expected to contribute to several key aspects of galaxy evolution. As such, empirically identifying major mergers is a...
