Constraining the Limits of the Magnetic Confinement-Rotation Diagram: An Analysis of Two B-type Systems Hosting Recently Discovered Extreme Centrifugal Magnetospheres
Following the detection in the late 70s of a strong magnetic field in the early B-type star sigma Ori E and, more recently with the results of the Magnetism In MassivE Stars (MiMeS) survey, an important and rare subclass ...
The Design of a Scanning Tunneling Microscope for Electroluminescence Studies
A conventional scanning tunneling microscope (STM) provides topographical and tunneling spectra information of atomic structures. However, the extremely small lateral dimension of the tunneling filament is also responsible ...
On the Development of the Wavelength Shifter Deposition System for the DEAP-3600 Dark Matter Search Experiment
The DEAP-3600 dark matter search experiment uses 3600 kilograms of liquid argon as a target medium contained in a spherical acrylic vessel. Particle interactions in liquid argon produce vacuum ultraviolet light at a peak ...
Pulsed Eddy Current Inspection of Broach Support Plates in Steam Generators
Steam Generators (SGs) are a critical component of nuclear reactors, employing thousands of SG tubes to convert heat generated in the reactor core into useable energy. SG tubes are supported at numerous locations by Broach ...
