Optically Active Chiral Mediums Fabricated with Glancing Angle Deposition
Optically active helical microparticles are studied in the forms of thin films, suspensions and powders. From fabricated helical porous thin films, microparticle suspensions are obtained by removing the microparticles (film ...
Alpha backgrounds in the DEAP dark matter search experiment.
One of the pressing concerns in Dark Matter detection experiments is ensuring that the potential signal from exceedingly rare Dark Matter interactions is not obscured by background from interactions with more common ...
Persistent currents in bosonic mixtures in the ring geometry
The present thesis is devoted to an analysis of the possibility of Bose condensates supporting persistent currents in the ring geometry. Our analysis is based on an approach developed by F. Bloch which focuses on the ...
A detailed observational analysis of magnetism in three B and O stars observed within the context of the MiMeS project
The detailed observational analysis of three massive B- and O-type stars was carried out in this study in order to characterize their fundamental, magnetic, and variability properties. The bulk of the data acquired were ...
The Rayleigh ratio measurement for SNO+ liquid scintillator and background studies of the internal ropes
As a successor of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory, the SNO+ experiment is planned to start data taking in early 2013. Making use of the liquid scintillator, Linear Alkylbenzene (LAB), the SNO+ experiment aims to perform ...
