Combination of the Top Quark Mass Measurements from the Tevatron Collider
(American Physical Society, 2012)
The top quark is the heaviest known elementary particle, with a mass about 40 times larger than the mass of its isospin partner, the bottom quark. It decays almost 100% of the time to a W boson and a bottom quark. Using ...
Understanding Prostitutes and Prostitution in Democratic Burma, 1942–62 State Jewels or Victims of Modernity?
(IP Publishing Ltd, 2011)
Prostitution in Burmese society, as in many South East Asian countries, is a taboo subject. Unlike prostitution in countries such as Thailand, however, prostitution in Burma does not attract strong media or scholarly ...
Measurement of the Interior Structure of Thin Polymer Films Using Grazing Incidence Diffuse X-Ray Scattering
(American Physical Society, 2010)
A method is developed for calculating the small-angle x-ray scattering originating from within the interior of a thin film under grazing incidence illumination. This offers the possibility of using x-ray scattering to ...
Amplifier for Optical Stochastic Cooling
(Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics OSA Technical Digest (online) (Optical Society of America, 2017), paper JW2A.90 •https://doi.org/10.1364/CLEO_AT.2017.JW2A.90, 2017-05-20)
The amplification of electromagnetic radiation emitted from charged-particlebeams can be used for beam cooling. We discuss our progress to develop such a system usingundulator radiation.
Mandala Spring/Summer 2011
(Center for Southeast Asian Studies, 2011)
Is the Transition from Classical to Quantum Mechanics Truly an example of a Kuhnian Revolution?
I argue that classical mechanics and quantum theories are not necessarily as radically different as they have been depicted so far. In fact whether we actually have a paradigm shift going from classical to quantum mechanics ...

Book Review of "Quantum Theory: A Philosopher's Overview"
(Taylor and Francis, 2011-01-06)
Given its general motivation, “Quantum Theory: a Philosopher's Overview” by Salvator Cannavo is a very interesting book. The fundamental question is: Can quantum mechanics be an explanatory theory? In a nutshell, his answer ...
A Climatology of Fatal Convective Wind Events by Storm Type
(American Meteorological Society, 2010-10)
There are still hundreds of casualties produced by thunderstorm hazards each year in the United States despite the many recent advances in prediction and mitigation of the effects of convective storms. Of the four most ...
Jazz by the Sea: KRML and the Radio Presence of ‘America’s Classical Music’
(Jazz Perspectives, 2013)
The last for-profit radio station with an all-jazz format was located not in a major city or center of jazz activity, but in Carmel, California. KRML-AM 1410 broadcasted jazz almost exclusively for three decades, before ...
