• 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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. ...
  • 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 ...
