    • Band Gap Modulation in Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes 

      Chase, Brittany; Crosby, Kevin (2011-02-08)
      Carbon nanotube (CNT) structures represent a recently discovered (1991) phase of carbon. The CNT structure is best described as a single graphene sheet rolled into a seamless tube. They can be classified into three ...
    • Band Gaps of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes: A Computational Study 

      Chase, Brittany (2010-03-31)
      I studied the electronic band structure of carbon nanotubes through computer simulations using quantum molecular dynamics. I demonstrated that band gap energies can be "tuned" by the application of external tensile strain. ...
    • Disappearance and Resurgence of Jupiter’s Southern Equatorial Band 

      Shinnick, Eric; Arion, Douglas (2011-02-08)
      Galileo’s first look at Jupiter through a telescope sparked his evidence that our solar system was heliocentric. Since then the observation of Jupiter has become incredibly widespread and frequent. Our initial goal was ...
    • Repose Behavior of Lunar Regolith Simulants 

      Fritz, isa; Crosby, Kevin (2011-02-08)
    • Webcam Observation of Saturn's C-Ring 

      Brodie, Ian; Arion, Douglas (2011-02-08)
      Changes in the rings of Saturn are difficult to detect from Earth-based telescopes because of their fine composition. Particulate bodies, like planetary rings, demonstrate strange phenomena without obvious causes and are ...
