The distribution of particles in the Eastern Pacific Ocean was
investigated from 2 January to 14 February, l969, on the YALOC-69
cruise of Oregon State University. The size distributions were well
fitted by the two-parameter Weibull distribution function, with a
predominant number of them nearly exponential in distributional
The data contained in this report represents over 3000 individual scattering measurements taken in the equatorial Pacific in the vicinity of Johnston Island. The purpose of the measurements was to obtain data that would aid in the determination of a correct model for the mixing processes in the vicinity of...
In this dissertation we study the electromagnetic properties of plasmonic metamaterials. We develop an analytical description to solve the fundamental problem of free-space scattering in planar plasmonic systems by utilizing anisotropic metamaterials. We show with exact numerical simulations that these manufactured materials do completely eliminate the scattering, and even in...
This dissertation concerns a broad range of unique phenomena related to the light propagation at nano- and micro-scales. To access the nano-domain, we introduce anisotropy-based waveguides with positive- and negative-index modes. These novel structures allow energy propagation in subwavelength regions and, in contrast to surface waves, have the mode structure...
The excitation and decay probabilities for resonance scattering
of radiation from an atom with two coupled excited states and one
ground state in an external static field are calculated as a function
of time and frequency. Various oscillatory behaviors are found in all
the probabilities. These oscillations depend on the...
An inelastic scattering experiment was done in which 17-MeV
protons from the Oregon State University cyclotron were scattered
and ¹⁵N gas targets. Angular distributions are shown for
the ground, 6.32-, 7.56-, 8.31-, and 8.57 -MeV states and the 5.3- and
7.2-MeV unresolved doublets of ¹⁵N, and for the...
