Elucidating strategies to design tailored chitosan surfaces with enhanced antibiofouling and biocompatibility properties via plasma assisted processes (2019-12-10)Bacteria colonization of surfaces is often an undesired process. It affects human activities across different fields, including agriculture, marine transportation, the food, textile, oil and biomedical industries. Its ...
Positron annihilation spectroscopy to understand defect formation and evolution in neutron-irradiated Fe-Cr model alloys (2019-12-10)Positron annihilation spectroscopy (PAS) is a powerful, non-destructive technique used to characterize the defect properties of materials. There are two major types of PAS, positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy and ...
(2019-12-09)A number of advances in the design and operating performance of magnetic fusion devices have been made in recent decades. While the optimization of reactor components and magnetic topologies have led to considerable ...
A comparison of geostatistcal interpolation methods for the characterization of background radiation collected on a mobile sensor network in a cloud computing environment (2019-12-11)There is a need to identify illicit radioactive sources in urban environments to prevent potential national security crises. These illicit materials can be the precursors to dirty bombs as well as broader nuclear proliferation. ...
In situ and post mortem surface chemistry measurements of boronization in the national spherical torus experiment upgrade (2019-12-09)Plasma facing component (PFC) conditioning has been shown to improve plasma performance in tokamaks by reducing impurities in the core. The method of PFC conditioning used in the National Spherical Torus eXperiment Upgrade ...
