  • Anti-fog coatings using the super-hydrophobic approach 

    Almeida, Riberet (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    Surfaces with water contact angles in excess of 150⁰ have been attracting a great deal of attention. The work done here was in the design and development of an anti-fog coating. The hydrophilic as well as the hydrophobic ...
  • Compact power conditioning and RF systems for a high power RF source 

    O'Connor, Kevin A. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    As part of the University Consortium for High Power Microwave (HPM) Integration, compact power conditioning and RF systems were investigated with a maximum diameter of 15.24 cm. A simulator of a flux compression generator ...
  • Design and construction of helmholtz coil for biomagnetic studies on soybean 

    Gyawali, Shashi Raj (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    A Helmholtz coil with a large usable area of uniform field was designed, constructed and characterized, specifically for bioelectric studies. The design and analysis of the coil were carried out through experiments and the ...
  • Effects of nano-second pulsed electric fields (nsPEF) on human prostate cancer cell line - LNCaP 

    Donthula, Vinitha (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    The effects of Pulsed Electric Fields have been a period of study since past few decades, which was mainly on the electroporation, bacterial decontamination and biofouling. But the development of technology to produce ...
  • Ex situ variable angle spectroscopic ellipsometry studies on chemical vapor deposited boron-doped diamond films: layered structure and modeling aspects 

    Dudipala, Ajay Prasad Reddy (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    [ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] Diamond possesses several outstanding physical properties (mechanical hardness, thermal conductivity, chemical inertness and high index of refraction) ...
  • High-speed, high-accuracy method for mutual inductance calculations 

    Mueller, David W. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    Three methods for calculating the mutual inductance of coils are examined and compared: a finite-element field code analysis method, theoretical analysis method, and F. W. Grover's tabular method. These methods are applied ...
  • Laser target triggering of gas switches 

    Sullivan, Dustin L. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    Laser target triggering has been investigated at the University of Missouri as a method to reduce the laser energy required to trigger a laser triggered gas switch. Laser targets were solid materials embedded into the ...
  • Low loss film bulk acoustic resonator in liquid environments 

    Pottigari, Sai Sumanth (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    [ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] A film bulk acoustic resonator (FBAR) is an acoustic resonator mass sensor using the resonance of longitudinal or shears acoustic waves. There is a ...
  • Modeling the behavior of a homopolar motor 

    Belarde, Gianetta Maria (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    The design, construction, and operating characteristics of a homopolar motor are described in this thesis using both physical experimentation and simulation software. This type of motor converts electrical energy into ...
  • MSM photodiode as the switching element in a photoswitch-based class E microwave power amplifier 

    Smith, Brady Christopher (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    A photoswitch is designed for use as the switching element in a 2 GHz class E amplifier. The application of this amplifier is as the final-stage amplifier in the transmit-receive module of a phased-array radar system. The ...
  • Optically enhanced nano-forest cathodes 

    Zeier, William (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    [ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] Optically enhanced nano-forest cathodes are electron sources developed for high power devices. The principle of cathode operation is based on coherent ...
  • Runtime and jitter of a laser triggered gas switch 

    Hutsel, Brian T. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    The University of Missouri has studied parameters affecting the runtime and jitter of a laser triggered gas switch. Experiments tested a variety of switch parameters including percentage of self-break and charge voltage. ...
  • Shallow trench isolation process in microfabrication for flash (NAND) memory 

    Garud, Niharika (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    Technology is steadily advancing where semiconductors and microelectronics have become such a huge source of revenue and area of technological interest, resulting in reduced device geometries and more complicated microelectronic ...
  • The study of single phase diode rectifiers with high power factor and low total harmonic distortion 

    Tella, Pranavi Chowdari (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    The mains current in an ac/dc converter contains periodic current pulses due to the action of rectifier and output filter capacitor. The high current peaks cause harmonic distortion of the supply current and low power ...
