A diffusionviscous analysis and experimental verification of defect formation in sintered silver bondline
(Cambridge University Press, 201404)The lowtemperature joining technique (LTJT) by silver sintering is being implemented by major manufacturers of power electronic devices and modules for bonding power semiconductor chips. A common dieattach material used ... 
A discretevelocity, stationary Wigner equation
(AIP Publishing, 200011)This paper is concerned with the onedimensional stationary linear Wigner equation, a kinetic formulation of quantum mechanics. Specifically, we analyze the wellposedness of the boundary value problem on a slab of the ... 
A Dual PET/MR Imaging Nanoprobe: 124I Labeled Gd3N@C80
(MDPI, 20120510)The current report describes the development of a dual modality tomographic agent for both positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MRI). The dualmodality agent in this study was based on a 124I ... 
A finite element splitting extrapolation for second order hyperbolic equations
(Siam Publications, 2009)Splitting extrapolation is an efficient technique for solving large scale scientific and engineering problems in parallel. This article discusses a finite element splitting extrapolation for second order hyperbolic equations ... 
A general convergence analysis of some Newtontype methods for nonlinear inverse problems
(Siam Publications, 2011)We consider the methods x(n+1)(delta)  x(n)(delta)  g(alpha n) (F'(x(n)(delta))* F'(x(n)(delta)))F'(x(n)(delta))*(F(x(n)(delta))  y(delta)) for solving nonlinear illposed inverse problems F(x) = y using the only available ... 
A generalized rule for large piezoelectric response in perovskite oxide ceramics and its application for design of leadfree compositions
(American Institute of Physics, 20090601)We present a general rule for the perovskite oxide ceramics: "A large piezoelectric constant in ABO(3) perovskite ceramics can be obtained by tuning the weight ratio of A and B sites, WA/WB or WB/WA, to 3. Piezoelectric ... 
A highfield adiabatic fast passage ultracold neutron spin flipper for the UCNA experiment
(AIP Publishing, 201207)The UCNA collaboration is making a precision measurement of the beta asymmetry (A) in free neutron decay using polarized ultracold neutrons (UCN). A critical component of this experiment is an adiabatic fast passage neutron ... 
A hightemperature tolerant species in clade 9 of the genus Phytophthora: Phydrogena sp nov
(Mycological Society of America, 201401)A previously unknown Phytophthora species was isolated from irrigation water in Virginia, USA. This novel species produces abundant noncaducous and nonpapillate sporangia in soil water extract solution. It sometimes produces ... 
A History of the Development of Brucella Vaccines
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2013)Brucellosis is a worldwide zoonosis affecting animal and human health. In the last several decades, much research has been performed to develop safer Brucella vaccines to control the disease mainly in animals. Till now, ... 
A hybrid collocation method for volterra integral equations with weakly singular kernels
(Siam Publications, 2003)The commonly used graded piecewise polynomial collocation method for weakly singular Volterra integral equations may cause serious roundoff error problems due to its use of extremely nonuniform partitions and the sensitivity ... 
A kinetic formulation of 3dimensional quantum mechanical harmonicoscillator under a random perturbation
(AIP Publishing, 197802)The behavior of a three_dimensional, nonrelativistic, quantum mechanical harmonic oscillator is investigated under the influence of three distinct types of randomly fluctuating potential fields. Specifically, kinetic (or ... 
a laboratory miniproject in plantdisease diagnosis
(University of California Press, 198610) 
A longitudinallongitudinal mode TERFENOLD/Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3PbTiO3 laminate composite
(AIP Publishing, 200411)We have found that laminates of longitudinally magnetized magnetostrictive TERFENOLD layersand a longitudinally poled piezoelectric Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3PbTiO3 crystal have a giant magnetoelectric voltage coefficient of >430 ... 
A lowfrequency radio array for space
(EDP SCIENCES, 198804)At the lowest radio frequencies (<30 MHz), the Earth's ionosphere transmits poorly or not at all. This relatively unexplored region of the electromagnetic spectrum is thus an area where high resolution, high sensitivity ... 
A Markov process model of ocean sediments
(Acoustical Society of America, 198501)Monochromatic planewave illumination of a randomly stratified, laterally homogeneous sediment layer is considered. The deposition process creating the stochastic layering is assumed to be a continuous parameter, finite ... 
A model for assessing the likelihood of selfsustaining populations resulting from commercial production of triploid Suminoe oysters (Crassostrea ariakensis) in Chesapeake Bay
(National Marine Fisheries Service Scientific Publication Office, 200310)Culture of a nonnative species, such as the Suminoe oyster (Crassostrea ariakensis), could offset the harvest of the declining native eastern oyster (Crassostrea virginica) fishery in Chesapeake Bay. Because of possible ...
