  • Foster, David H. (University of Oregon, 2006-03)
    We investigate models describing two classes of microresonators: those having the shape of a dome, and those having an oval (deformed circle or sphere) shape. We examine the effects of dielectric interfaces in these ...
  • Resch, Rudolph (University of Oregon, 2020-09-24)
    The simple measurement of a distance has long powered sensitive scientific instruments. In the case of scanning probe microscopy (SPM), instruments like Scanning Tunneling Microsopes (STM) and Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM) ...
  • Montgomery, Rick (University of Oregon, 2015-01-14)
    With life expectancy on the rise, age-related ailments are a significant strain on the welfare of individuals and the economy. Progress is being made towards combating the leading cause of unavoidable blindness, age-related ...
  • Watterson, William (University of Oregon, 2018-04-10)
    From investigating movement in an insect to deciphering cognition in a human brain to treating Parkinson's disease, hearing loss, or even blindness, electronic implants are an essential tool for understanding the brain and ...
  • Propp, Tzula (University of Oregon, 2020-12-08)
    Quantum mechanics cements the intimate relationship between the nature of light and its detection. Historically, quantum theories of photodetection have generally fallen into two categories: the first tries to determine ...
  • Blaikie, Andrew (University of Oregon, 2020-09-24)
    In the quest to probe the nanoscale, new materials have been discovered. One of these materials is graphene, a sheet of carbon a single atom thick. An especially exciting application of graphene is its use in thermal ...
  • Rahmat, Rahmat, 1974- (University of Oregon, 2008-09)
    We report on a study of the invariant mass spectrum of the hadronic system in à - [arrow right] à - à 0 à à à à à ½ à decays. This study was performed using data obtained with the ...
  • Hannigan, Justin Michio, 1977- (University of Oregon, 2009-12)
    This thesis reports on progress made toward realizing strong cavity quantum electrodynamics coupling in a novel micro-cavity operating close to the hemispherical limit. Micro-cavities are ubiquitous wherever the aim is ...
  • Su, Run (University of Oregon, 2013-07-11)
    Magnetic films have gained great attention for decades because of their broad industrial application. Their modern functionality more and more relies on their domain structure. Magnetic films usually form complex domain ...
  • Zappitelli, Kara (University of Oregon, 2020-12-08)
    Retinal degenerative diseases (RDDs), which cause the gradual death of rods and cones in the retina, impact millions of people all over the world, yet there are few clinically viable treatments and no cure. Multi-electrode ...
  • Pierce, Jordan (University of Oregon, 2019-01-11)
    Electron microscopes offer scientists an invaluable tool in probing matter at a very small scale. Rapid advancements over the past several decades has allowed electron microscopes to routinely image samples at the ...
  • Johnson, Elsa M., 1971- (University of Oregon, 2010-09)
    Supernovae Ia are viable standard candles for measuring cosmological distances because of their enormous light output and similar intrinsic brightness. However, dispersion in intrinsic brightness casts doubt on the overall ...
  • Smith, Julian (University of Oregon, 2020-09-24)
    Neuroscientists do not fully understand why neurons acquire their morphology and specific dendritic structure. This is important knowledge because the shape of neurons is connected to the health and computational power of ...
  • Lekavicius, Ignas (University of Oregon, 2020-12-08)
    As work progresses towards a useful quantum computer using various physical implementations, it seems likely that no single physical system can fully realize all necessary requirements for a large scale, interfaced, stable ...
  • Hay, Edouard (University of Oregon, 2020-02-27)
    The microbial communities of animal intestines are composed of dozens to hundreds of species and play important roles in host development, health and disease. Due to the complexity of these communities, the determinants ...
  • Baker, Ryan (University of Oregon, 2018-04-10)
    Nearly all individual members of the animal kingdom have gastrointestinal tracts which feature unique cellular compositions, geometries, and temporal dynamics. These guts are distinct enough from one another, even across ...
  • Hoeger, Kentaro (University of Oregon, 2020-12-08)
    Microbes have been found to inhabit a myriad of natural and artificial environments on earth, many of which are chemically complex and physically anisotropic – such as wet soils, the oceans, or mammalian guts. In order ...
  • Jemielita, Matthew (University of Oregon, 2016-02-23)
    Every animal harbors a large community of microbes, the microbiota. Of particular importance is the intestinal microbiota, which plays a crucial role in the development and homeostasis of its animal host. Over the last ...
  • Logan, Savannah (University of Oregon, 2019-04-30)
    All animals harbor microorganisms that interact with each other and with their hosts. These microorganisms play important roles in health, disease, and defense against pathogens. The microbial communities in the intestine ...
  • Wang, Yongjun, 1975- (University of Oregon, 2008-12)
    The electrical properties of conducting polymer-based devices are investigated in order to better understand charge transport through conducting polymers and charge transfer at conducting polymer interfaces with metals and ...
