A brief history of X-ray control methods is presented, and
the instrumentation requirements and physiological considerations
pertaining to an automatic X-ray control system are discussed.
The latter half of the thesis describes the design and operation
of a device which will permit medical radiographs to be taken
automatically and at...
A spectral fitting routine was developed to analyze X-ray emissions in neutron capture decay
processes that produce ¹⁹⁷Hg and ¹⁹⁷Pt. Through correcting for X-ray emissions, the
77.3 keV γ gamma ray intensities were analyzed. The thermal cross sections for the production of
¹⁹⁷Hg and ¹⁹⁷Pt were found to be 2088...
Vortical structures are the driving mechanism of transition to turbulence in porous media requiring adequately resolved observations along with analysis of the scale and energy of ﬂow within the pores. Of speciﬁc interest is to understand the vortex dynamics, energy, and turbulent mixing and transport properties in the scale of...
Studies of anisotropic and isotropic Raman line shape yield information about the rotational motion (rotational correlation function) and non-reorientational (vibrational) lifetimes. The rotational motion of carbon disulfide has been studied previously by the techniques of Raman spectroscopy (6, 43), Rayleigh scattering (43, 46) and direct measurement (47). This work was...
A nonflame method for atomic absorption spectroscopy is
described. A helical tungsten filament from a commercially available
6-V, 4-A light bulb, heated to :incandescence in an argon atmosphere
is used to atomize 2-μl aqueous samples for metals analyses. Studies
of two hollow cathode lamp tungsten filament orientations, a
Measurements of tidal currents on the central Oregon shelf are available from several sources, including recent high frequency (HF) coastal radar and Acoustic Doppler Profiler (ADP) deployments, and historical current moorings. In this paper we use a generalized inverse (GI) approach to compare these data to, and then assimilate them...
Ab initio calculations using the B3LYP and CCSD(T) methods were employed in this work to explore the most stable structure of the intriguing compound Be(BH₄)₂, for which as many as seven different structures have been proposed in the literature. Use of the B3LYP density functional method with several large basis...
The question of the suitability of Walsh functions or
similar bi-valued functions used as a radar electromagnetic
carrier waveform is considered. Walsh functions are
described and effective sinusoidal steady state transfer
functions are defined for transmission elements, antenna
systems, and propagation media.
The argument is made that the unit impulse...
