  • Development and characterization of fluorescent dye-doped nanoparticles with enhanced fluorescence intensity and photostability [abstract] 

    Bok, Sangho, 1972-; Korampally, Venumadhav, 1972-; Mukherjee, Somik; Dasgupta, Purnendu K.; Gangopadhyay, Keshab; Gangopadhyay, Shubhra; Polo-Parada, Luis; Folk, William Robert (2010)
    We report the development of fluorescent dye doped organosilicate nanoparticles (DOSNPs) synthesized from poly-methylsilsesquioxane(PMSSQ), resulting in high fluorescence intensity and excellent photostability. The surface ...
  • Albuterol metered dose inhaler performance under hyperbaric pressures 

    Johnson, Garry A.; Gutti, Veera R.; Loyalka, S. K.; O'Beirne, Kenneth A.; Cochran, Steven K.; Dale, Hollis M.; Kracke, George Robert (2010-02)
    INTRODUCTION: The stimulus for this presentation was an asthma attack suffered on the first dive by a victim of a severe industrial electrical burn. The patient's response to albuterol metered dose inhaler (MDI) treatment ...
  • Nuclear Energy Breakout Panel [sound recording] 

    Caruso, Anthony N.; Camp, Allen L.; Deem, Amy; Hermann, Timothy E.; Miller, William Hughes, 1941- (University of Missouri (System), 2009-04)
    This panel discussed using nuclear energy as an alternative energy source. Topics ranged from non-proliferation to tax credits to nuclear waste.
  • A Research Program Nuclear Energy Conversion 

    Prelas, Mark Antonio, 1953- (2009-04)
    Direct conversion of nuclear energy to electricity has been a challenging problem since the inception of the generation of electricity from nuclear reactions. The development of wide bandgap, p-n junctions in materials ...
  • A Research Program on Very High Temperature Reactors 

    Loyalka, S. K.; Ghosh, Tushar K., Dr.; Prelas, Mark Antonio, 1953-; Tompson, R. V. (Robert Vaughn), 1958-; Viswanath, Dabir S.; Al-Dahhan, Muthanna; Gardner, Robin P. (2009-04)
    Prismatic and pebble bed very high-temperature reactors (VHTRs) are very attractive both from a thermodynamic efficiency viewpoint and hydrogen-production capability. This project addresses numerous challenges associated ...
