On the mass and luminosity within isolated and binary galaxies
(University of St Andrews, 1977) - Thesis
The aim of this project has been to study the detailed mass and luminosity distributions within spiral galaxies, with particular emphasis on the comparison of isolated and binary systems. A large programme of photographic ...
The pyrolysis of ethylbenzene
(University of St Andrews, 1963) - Thesis
Stars over St Andrews : 75 years of observational astronomy at the University Observatory, St Andrews, Scotland
(Dr R.W. Hilditch, 2015) - Book
This document (© Ron Hilditch, University Observatory, St Andrews, Scotland) gives an account of the observational astronomy conducted at the University Observatory, St Andrews, from its inauguration in 1940 through to ...
Close range passive millimetre wave imaging
(University of St Andrews, 2003-05) - Thesis
This thesis describes the design and construction of a close range Passive Millimetre Wave (PMMW) scanning thermal imager. Whilst close range PMMW imager has previously been applied to concealed weapon detection at ranges ...
Holmium hafnate : an emerging electronic device material
(2015-03-16) - Journal article
We report structural, optical, charge transport, and temperature properties as well as the frequency dependence of the dielectric constant of Ho2Hf2O7 (HHO) which make this material desirable as an alternative high-k ...
Nonequilibrium ferroelectric-ferroelastic 10-nm nanodomains : wrinkles, period-doubling, and power-law relaxation
(2017-08-02) - Journal article
Since the 1935 work of Landau and Lifshitz and of Kittel in 1946 all ferromagnetic, ferroelectric, and ferroelastic domains have been thought to be straight-sided with domain widths proportional to the square root of the ...
Galaxy and Mass Assembly (GAMA) : the life and times of L-star galaxies
(2013-05-01) - Journal article
In this work, we investigate in detail the effects the local environment (groups and pairs) has on galaxies with stellar mass similar to the Milky Way (L* galaxies). A volume limited sample of 6150 galaxies are visually ...
All-optical assay to study biological neural networks
(2018-07-05) - Journal article
We introduce a novel all-optical assay for functional studies of biological neural networks in vitro. We created a novel optogenetics construct named OptoCaMP which is a combination of a channelrhodopsin variant (CheRiff) ...
Tailoring optical fibers for cell transfection
(University of St Andrews, 2012-11-30) - Thesis
Optical transfection is a promising technique for the delivery of foreign genetic material into cells by transiently changing the permeability of the cell membrane. Of the different optical light sources that have been ...
Single cell transfection by laser-induced breakdown of an optically trapped gold nanoparticle
(SPIE, 2014-03-07) - Conference item
Cell selective introduction of therapeutic agents remains a challenging problem. Cavitation-based therapies including ultrasound-induced sonoporation and laser-induced optoporation have led the way for novel approaches to ...
