  • Microstructure, Dynamics and Rheology of Model Soft Particulate Gels 

    Bantawa, Minaspi (Georgetown University, 2021)
    Soft particulate gels consist of a small amount of solid material (colloidal particles or small aggregates) embedded in a fluid and are industrially relevant materials for applications in a wide range of fields including ...
  • Graphene Quantum Dot Bolometers and their Applications for the Characterization of Single Molecule Magnets 

    St Marie, Luke Riley (Georgetown University, 2021)
    Graphene’s unique and extraordinary electronic, thermal, mechanical, and chemical properties give it incredible potential for nanotechnology applications. The electronic properties in particular are very sensitive to the ...
  • Simulating Open Quantum Systems on Near Term Quantum Computers 

    Rost, Brian William (Georgetown University, 2021)
    The simulation of quantum systems is poised to be one of the first and most impactful applications of quantum computers. This thesis focuses on such simulation with a particular emphasis on simulating open quantum systems, ...
  • Improved Feature Localization Through Broadband Image Processing 

    Pushee, Kevin (Georgetown University, 2021)
    Traditional photographic digital images are acquired from an array of photodetector elements whose physical size and location define the image pixels. Each element measures the amount of light incident upon it. The images ...
  • Shear Thickening of Silica Rod Suspensions 

    Lai, Xiangwen (Georgetown University, 2020)
    Colloidal particles in a liquid such as silica rod suspensions exhibit non-Newtonian behaviors like continuous shear thickening (CST) and discontinuous shear thickening (DST). These rheological behaviors of suspensions of ...
