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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Optical spectroscopic analysis for the discrimination of Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
(2016-11) - Journal article
We demonstrate the ability to discriminate between five brands of commercially available extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO) using Raman spectroscopy or fluorescence spectroscopy. Data was taken on both a ‘bulk optics’ free space ...
Label-free haemogram using wavelength modulated Raman spectroscopy for identifying immune-cell subset
(SPIE, 2014-03-04) - Conference item
Leucocytes in the blood of mammals form a powerful protective system against a wide range of dangerous pathogens. There are several types of immune cells that has specific role in the whole immune system. The number and ...
Development of a graded index microlens based fiber optical trap and its characterization using principal component analysis
(2015-04-01) - Journal article
We demonstrate a miniaturized single beam fiber optical trapping probe based on a high numerical aperture graded index (GRIN) micro-objective lens. This enables optical trapping at a distance of 200μm from the probe tip. ...
