4 Stringfellow, Gerald B.; Shurtleff, James KevinHeterostructures in GaInP grown using a change in Te dopingIn organometallic vapor phase epitaxy, changes in growth conditions can be used to modulate the extent of CuPt ordering and, hence, the band gap energy of GaInP. One method is to add Te during growth. An increase in the band gap energy of 0.1 eV due to a decrease in ordering has been obtained by ...Heterostructures; Alloys2000

8 Furse, Cynthia M.Capacitance and inductance sensor circuits for detecting the lengths of open- and short-circuited wiresThe length of an open- or short-circuited wire is linearly proportional to the capacitance or inductance of the wire, respectively. Several types of simple and inexpensive circuits are introduced to measure these values. Open-circuited (capacitance) measurements are very effective. Short-circuited ...Aging aircraft wire; Capacitance sensors; Fault detection; Inductance sensors2009-08

12 Furse, Cynthia M.Impedance of a short dipole antenna in a magnetized plasma via a finite difference time domain modelThe traditional analytical analysis of plasma probes requires the use of quasi-static approximations, while numerical methods require the use of an equivalent dispersive media, both producing a nontrivial analysis of the plasma environment. On the other hand, a few techniques that combine the plasm...Antenna theory; finite-difference time-domain; FDTD; Plasma covered antennas; Plasma measurements2005-08
13 Tasdizen, Tolga; Whitaker, Ross T.Higher-order nonlinear priors for surface reconstructionAbstract-For surface reconstruction problems with noisy and incomplete range data, a Bayesian estimation approach can improve the overall quality of the surfaces. The Bayesian approach to surface estimation relies on a likelihood term, which ties the surface estimate to the input data, and the prior...2004
