Lifetime measurement of 26O Research Advisor: Dr. Paul DeYoung This work is supported by the Hope College Division of Natural and Applied Sciences and the Hope College Department of Physics.
Determining the Nuclear Structure of an Unstable 25O Isotope Research Advisor: Dr. Paul DeYoung One of the primary goals of nuclear physics research is to better understand the force that binds nucleons. This can be accomplished by studying the structure of neutron-rich isotopes. For this experiment, excited 25O nuclei were formed by a collision between […]
Obtaining the Likelihood from Unbinned Data of Detected and Simulated Pulsars Research Advisor: Dr. Peter Gonthier This research is made possible by the generous support of the Department of Physics and the Dean for Natural and Applied Sciences Office of Hope College.
Electrochemical vs X-ray Spectroscopic Measurements of NiFe(CN)6 Crystals Research Advisor: Dr. Jennifer Hampton Pseudocapacitive materials like hexacyanoferrate have greater energy storage capabilities than standard capacitors while maintaining an ability to charge and discharge quickly. By modifying the surface of an electrodeposited nickel thin film with a layer of hexacyanoferrate, we can enhance its electrochemical properties. […]
PIXE-NRA Analysis to Determine Metalloprotein Stoichiometry Research Advisor: Dr. Paul DeYoung An Ion Beam Analysis (IBA) technique of simultaneous Particle-Induced X-ray Emission (PIXE) and Nuclear Reaction Analysis (NRA) is being developed to determine the complete stoichiometry of metalloproteins. Even though approximately one third of all proteins are metalloproteins, the stoichiometric ratios of the metalloproteins are still […]
