Biological nanopore MspA for DNA sequencing
Unlocking the information hidden in the human genome provides insight into the inner workings of complex biological systems and can be used to greatly improve health-care. In order to allow for widespread sequencing, new technologies are required that provide fast and inexpensive readings of DNA. Nanopore sequencing is a ...
The Dynamics of the Unitary Fermi Gas
This dissertation is concerned with the dynamics of dilute Fermi gases in the unitary regime with short-range interaction and infinite scattering length. This work represents the first ab- initio simulation of quantized vortex generation and domain walls generation. In addition, the interaction of quantized vortices and domain ...
Karlsruhe Tritium Experiment: Detector System Commissioning and In-Situ PIN-Diode Array Dead-Layer Measurement
The <underline>Ka</underline>rlsruhe <underline>Tri</underline>tium <underline>N</underline>eutrino (KATRIN) experimental goal is to measure the neutrino mass to 0.2 eV sensitivity at the 90 percent confidence level. This is an order of magnitude more sensitive than the two most recent direct neutrino mass measurements. The ...
Nuclei as Probes of Meson-Nucleon Interactions at High and Low Energy
This dissertation explores two main topics: 1) Color Transparency and quasi-elastic knockout reactions involving pions and &rho mesons; and 2) determination of the J/&psi-nucleon scattering amplitude and scattering length via J/&psi electroproduction on the deuteron. It is shown that at the energies available at the COMPASS ...
