  • The ferroelectric plasma thruster 

    Kemp, Mark A., 1980- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    Micropropulsion is an enabling technology for microspacecraft. As requirements for microspacecraft missions become more demanding, so do the requirements for micropropulsion. Therefore, existing technologies require ...
  • Full similarity-based page ranking 

    Xu, Jingqian (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    The World Wide Web creates many new challenges to information retrieval.The sheer mass and almost anarchic structure of the Web makes effective search difficult. Some good search engine alleviate the problem to some extent ...
  • Magnetoresistance in semiconductor-metal hybrids for power applications 

    Nunnally, Clay (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    Extraordinary magnetoresistance (EMR) in semiconductor-metal hybrids has been studied exclusively for sensor applications. However, some properties of EMR-based devices are potentially advantageous for power applications. ...
