Reflection and rotation for three dimensional microscopy of live cells
(Vanderbilt University. Dept. of Physics & Astronomy, 2008-04-18)
Confocal scanning laser microscopy and multiphoton microscopy provide 3D data from biological specimens, but with limited z-axis precision. Multiple microscale mirrors can be used to obtain more accurate 3D data on living ...
Progress towards a quantum dot photovoltaic : nanocrystal deposition on structured titanium dioxide nanotubes
(Vanderbilt University. Dept. of Physics & Astronomy, 2008-04)
While this project did not successfully produce a working photovoltaic device, significant progress has been made in the individual components of the system. This thesis describes two of those components: fabrication of ...
Influence of patient size on dose to female breast tissue during routine computed tomography scans
(Vanderbilt University. Dept. of Physics & Astronomy, 2008-04-21)
Monte Carlo methods are well suited to the evaluation of radiation transport phenomena. The scalable phantoms employed in this project permitted rapid creation of three models of similar geometry, but different body habitus. ...
Neurocognitive Effects of Treatment of Pediatric Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia: A Neuroimaging Analysis
(Vanderbilt University, 2008-04-04)
Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) is the most prevalent form of cancer diagnosed in children. The current survival rate is approximately 85% and has been rising over the last two decades. The standard treatment regimen ...
Effect of binocular rivalry suppression on contrast change detection
(Vanderbilt University, 2008-04)
In their 2004 study, Watanabe et al. measure the detectability of contrast increment probes during rivalry dominance and suppression by plotting threshold versus contrast (TvC)functions, finding significant elevation of ...
Exploring the Local Association : a nearby, young kinematic stream of stars in the solar neighborhood
(Vanderbilt University. Dept. of Physics & Astronomy, 2008)
During the course of my Honors Research Project, I worked with Dr. David James to determine whether a group of target stars are members of the Local Association. I did this by reducing spectroscopic data, taken by Dr. ...
