Fundamental Investigations of CdTe Deposited by MBE for Applications in Thin-Film Solar Photovoltaics
Model CdTe systems –both single-crystalline (sx) and poly-crystalline (px) –are investigated experimentally as a means to understand the role of competing material properties and processing steps in improving the performance ...
Bayesian Look Ahead Sampling Methods to Allocate up to M Observations among k Populations
In this paper, we study the Bayesian look ahead sampling methods for allocating up to M observations among k populations to select the best population(s). First, we investigated the properties of fixed sample-size sampling ...
Semiconductor Quantum Dots Water Solubilization, Functionalization, and Ratiometric Sensing of O2
Research on fluorescent semiconductor quantum dots (QDs, or nanocrystals) has been focused towards developing analytical applications for which their robust optical properties add value. To this end, the materials must be ...
Asymptotic Methods applied to an American Option under a CEV Process
We consider an American put option under the Constant Elasticity of Variance (CEV) process. This corresponds to a free boundary problem for a partial differential equation (PDE). We show that this free boundary satisfies ...
Adolescent Smoking Topography over Time
Despite data supporting the decline in rates of cigarette smoking in middle and high school as well as the high cost of smoking in the United States, a significant portion of these adolescents categorize themselves as ...
Abstract / Prospectus for Creative Dissertation (Working Title: The Key) At thirty-two, Bradley still lusts for his fourth grade teacher. The overarching plot summary of my dissertation is Bradley’s quest to re-ignite ...
