One type of radiation, called coherent bremsstrahlung, results from coherent electron scattering by atoms ... application/pdf PDF (2MB) • (1969) application/pdf PDF (6MB) • (2014-01-16) The goal of this thesis is to apply control algorithms to improve the performance of nanopositioning devices used on the beamline in Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). A prototype device, ... application/pdf PDF (1MB) • (2011-05-25) The purpose of the work performed in this thesis is to demonstrate the ability of a magnetron sputtering system to grow single crystal thin films of Uranium Oxides with and without specifically added Neodymium impurities. ... application/pdf PDF (2MB) • (1996) Doping of impurities may affect the Curie temperature (T$\sb{\rm c})\$ associated with the ferroelectric phase transition in terms of lattice harmonicity and anharmonicity including the creation of the defect energy. Its ...
