  1. Microparticle Manipulation in Optical Lattices

    Sb397837j?file=thumbnail
    Description: With the interference of several coherent beams, a periodical potential is produced for the particles trapped inside. The theoretical calculations show that the optical force applied on the particle in such optical lattice is in sinusoidal form. The force amplitudes vary greatly depending on the ratio of the particle size...

  3. Tell Me Thy Company: Inter-Organizational Relations in the United Nations System

    Z603qx574?file=thumbnail
    Description: For all its significance in world affairs, the United Nations is full of paradoxes. As a system - i.e. as a collection of independent yet interrelated entities - its contradictions derive from the juxtaposition of forces encouraging fragmentation and calls for improved harmonization. On its part, the reality of inter-organizational...

  4. Activity- and drug-induced plasticity of synaptic and intrinsic properties in pyramidal neurons of the rat hippocampus

    9s1616296?file=thumbnail
    Description: The vertebrate brain, which is made up of a vast array of individual neurons, is responsible for controlling numerous functions and behaviors, including distinguishing between visual cues, learning to navigate in a new environment, or making complex decisions. These neurons form specific networks that receive, process, and integrate chemical and...

  5. Essays in Empirical Analysis of Consumer Behavior and its Impact on Retailer's Optimal Strategies

    2b88qc309?file=thumbnail
    Description: I examine how consumers' purchase' decisions and intentions of purchases are affected by uncertainty about future deals (temporary price cuts or sales) for a product and how these results affect retailers' optimal pricing and marketing strategies. First I look at the effects of uncertainty about the timing of deals (i.e....

  6. The Modulation of Magnetic Properties In Magnetic Resonance Imaging Contrast Agents using Enzymes

    Gt54kn177?file=thumbnail
    Description: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an advanced imaging modality that is experiencing increasing popularity in clinical and experimental settings. MRI enjoys the benefit of high-resolution, the use of non-ionizing radiation, and the ability to distinguish between soft tissues. MR imaging is enhanced with the use of Gd3+ chelated contrast agents;...

  7. System-Level Synthesis and Verification

    5q47rn915?file=thumbnail
    Description: As device sizes decrease, more functionality can be placed in an integrated circuit. Therefore, the design complexity of these circuits increases. To deal with complexity, designers move to higher abstraction levels. Currently, the highest abstraction level is the system-level. In our work we investigate the synthesis and verification problem at...

  9. Mechanistic Modeling of Polymer Pyrolysis: Investigation of Intrinsic Kinetics, Reaction Pathways, and Structural Heterogeneities

    6q182k29p?file=thumbnail
    Description: Resource recovery is a promising category of polymer recycling where polymeric waste is converted via thermal or chemical means to monomer and chemical feedstocks. Specifically, pyrolysis is an attractive method because of its simplicity and ability to handle a heterogeneous feedstock. Polymer pyrolysis is characterized by a complex free radical...

  10. Design and Production of Protein-Based Polymers for Application as Drag-Tags in Free-Solution DNA Sequencing

    6m311p50d?file=thumbnail
    Description: End-Labeled Free-Solution Electrophoresis, or ELFSE, is an alternative strategy for DNA sequencing that proposes to eliminate the need for a viscous sieving matrix for size-based DNA separation. In this bioconjugate method, a perturbing entity or "drag-tag" is attached to differently sized DNA fragments produced by the Sanger reaction. This drag-tag...
