Railguns promise to make space travel and weapons systems much more efficient for the future. I conducted a project to skim the surface of railgun physics and design. I first started by constructing a small railgun as a proof-of-concept. I then delved deeper into the physics of operation by measuring and modeling the magnetic field associated with the operation of the device. The model railgun had all of the basic components of much larger, more complicated devices. It consisted of a pair of…

Modeling and removal of optical ghosts in the PROBA-3/ASPIICS externally occulted solar coronagraph
Context. ASPIICS is a novel externally occulted solar coronagraph, which will be launched onboard the PROBA-3 mission of the European Space Agency. The external occulter will be placed on the first
Application of Ni-Ti shape memory alloy actuators in a walking micro-robot
As walking robots are requested to perform tasks in rough terrain, the development of actuators capable to flexibly adapt to the unstructured environment becomes more and more necessary. The
A Hexapod Walking Micro-Robot with Compliant Legs
The conventional mechanisms with stiff joints make the robots more complex, heavy, large and expensive. As walking robots are requested to perform tasks in rough terrain, the development of actuators
Towards quantum degenerate Fermi mixtures : photoassociation of weakly bound 6Li40K molecules
This thesis reports on the construction of a new experimental apparatus aiming to study, at ultracold temperatures, a quantum degenerate gas mixture of two different atomic species of fermionic
The Environments of Green Pea Galaxies. I. The KISS Sample
We present environmental analyses for 13 KPNO International Spectroscopic Survey Green Pea (GP) galaxies. These galaxies were discovered via their strong [O iii] emission in the redshift range 0.29 <
Progress toward time-resolved molecular imaging: A theoretical study of optimal parameters in static photoelectron holography
TLDR
This paper aims to demonstrate the ability of laser-spot assisted, 3D image analysis to characterize the geometry of the response of the E.S. Gray–Seiden–Kaduwela error-correcting Monte Carlo method.
Hα Dots: Direct-method Metal Abundances of Low-luminosity Star-forming Systems
Utilizing low-luminosity star-forming systems discovered in the Hα Dots survey, we present spectroscopic observations undertaken using the Kitt Peak National Observatory 4 m telescope for 26 sources.
