Effects of Sterilization on the Physical Properties of an Elastin Biomaterial
The development of biomaterials for medical use requires the absolute sterility of the product as well as reliable product integrity and function. The development of biomaterials is a meticulous process in which the ...
A Non-Invasive Method To Monitor Gum Disease With An Ultrasonic Periodontal Probe
The long-term goal of the ultrasonic periodontal project is to create a non-invasive probe, which can accurately monitor gum disease. The project blends the scientific fields of biology, physics and engineering, in an ...
Plasma Diagnostics for Applications in Space Propulsion
The single largest stumbling block in the present endeavor to explore space is the simple dollar-per-pound cost necessary to put spacecraft in orbit. While many initiatives to design better, faster, cheaper rockets ...
Establish Testing Procedures for Dielectric and Piezoelectric Materials
The purpose of this project was to set up a laboratory with corresponding testing equipment that would demonstrate the structure-property relationships of dielectric and piezoelectric materials. The assigned project goals ...
An Introduction to Holography and Holographic Interferometry
For my Senior Individualized Project I performed research in the physics department at Kalamazoo College working in the field of Holography. I worked with Dan Bloom, Ph.D. a visiting assistant professor of physics. Our ...
