Detecting the Onset of Swelling in High Temperature Ceramic BiSrCaCuO Superconductors during Sintering
Superconductors are electrical conductors that have the property of carrying large amounts of current at very low temperatures (around 5-10K). These materials must undergo an intensive heating process called sintering that ...
High-Pressure Millimeter-Wave Spectroscopy and Radiometry
In 1990, Congress amended the Clean Air Act to phase in the requirement for all industries to continuously monitor airborne effluents for a range of environmentally unsound chemical species. This requirement sets the ...
Soil-D: Software to Calculate the Effective Dose Equivalents from External Exposure to Radionuclides in Soil
One method of calculating the effective dose equivalents for external exposures from radionuclides in soil has been derived by S. Y. Chen and calculated using a Monte Carlo Algorithm. Due to the large amount of time ...
Flux Flow Resistance in YBa2Cu3O7 Superconductors
This paper begins with a general overview and purpose of the project. An historical account of superconductivity is presented, followed by a simplistic explanation of the basic characteristics of superconductors. ...
Interactive Computer Games as Educational Supplements
My project was created with the facilities available at Kalamazoo College. I explored the new 660AV Macintosh and programmed its voice recognition. I created two physics labs for Kalamazoo College's non calculus based ...
Semiconductor Laser Arrays: Phase-Locked Solutions and their Stability
We have investigated the dynamic behavior of semiconductor laser arrays with evanescent coupling. Arrays of semiconductor lasers are capable of operating with high output powers and may therefore be useful in such areas ...
