Detector Development and Test Facility Commissioning for SuperCDMS
SuperCDMS, the next stage of the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS), uses cylindrical germa- nium crystals as particle detectors to measure phonon and ionization signals resulting from particle interactions. The aim of ...
Radon Background Reduction in DEAP-1 and DEAP-3600
The Dark Matter Experiment with Liquid Argon Using Pulse Shape Discrim- ination (DEAP) is a dark matter experiment based in the SNOLAB facility in Sudbury, Ontario. Its aim is to detect WIMPs, Weakly Interacting Massive ...
Domain Boundaries of the 5x5 DAS Reconstruction
Steps on surfaces have long been explored for their own sake, and exploited as growth mediators. However, another type of linear surface defect - the domain boundary - has been largely neglected. Here we introduce domain ...
Energy Transfer Between Molecules in the Vicinity of Metal Nanoparticle
Nanoplasmonics has opened up the gates for numerous innovations. Recent studies showed that metal nanoparticles, when introduced into the solar cells and organic light emitting diodes, would greatly enhance their efficiencies. ...
Design and Manufacture of a High-Frequency Annular Array Ultrasound System for Medical Imaging
This thesis presents the design of a high-frequency annular array ultrasound system suitable for medical imaging. To reduce the cost of the system, off-the-shelf parts were used whenever possible. The system consists of ...
Electrical and Optical Probing of Extremely Large Planar Polymer Light-Emitting Electrochemical Cells
Polymer light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs) are unique solid-state light-emitting devices operating on the principle of in situ electrochemical doping and the formation of a p-n junction. Compared to conventional ...
