Methods Of Magnetic Field Switching For Biomedical And Power Applications, Narimdinda Robert Bouda Jan 2015

Methods Of Magnetic Field Switching For Biomedical And Power Applications, Narimdinda Robert Bouda

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Surrounded by electromagnetic (EM) fields humans continuously interact and utilize EM fields for domestic devices, telecom systems, power systems and different medical applications including MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation). During the last century, numerous new electronic devices and technologies have been developed leading to an exponential increase in exposure to Electromagnetic Fields. Although all of these applications are byproducts of Maxwell' experimentation, there are considerable differences in the way they interact with us.

In the treatment of noninvasive treatment of the human brain, the majority of the research has been mainly focused on realizing systems that ...


Radio Frequency And Capacitive Sensors For Dielectric Characterization Of Low-Conductivity Media, Robert Thomas Sheldon Jan 2015

Radio Frequency And Capacitive Sensors For Dielectric Characterization Of Low-Conductivity Media, Robert Thomas Sheldon

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Low-conductivity media are found in a vast number of applications, for example as electrical insulation or as the matrix polymer in high strength-to-weight ratio structural composites. In some applications, these materials are subjected to extreme environmental, thermal, and mechanical conditions that can affect the material's desired performance. In a more general sense, a medium may be comprised of one or more layers with unknown material properties that may affect the desired performance of the entire structure. It is often, therefore, of great import to be able to characterize the material properties of these media for the purpose of estimating ...


New Developments In Magneto-Optic Interferometric Switching, John William Pritchard Jan 2015

New Developments In Magneto-Optic Interferometric Switching, John William Pritchard

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

In the next few decades, it is likely that high bandwidth wireless and optical technologies will be placed in the spotlight as the dominant avenues for communication all over the world. It is arguable that this is currently the case, and that the expectation for higher data transfer speeds, more secure and reliable transmission, and longer communication range is on an exponential rise. Thus, much effort and emphasis is being put on these technologies to advance as quickly as possible.

For optical systems, the majority of research has been focused on the realization of all-optical transmission, that is, transmission such ...
