The growth, structure, and thermal stability of vapor deposited ultra-thin metal films: Rh on Ag(100), Au on Pd(110), and Pt on Pd(110)

Description: The growth, structure, and thermal stability of ultra-thin metal films (Rh on Ag(100); Au on Pd(110) and Pt on Pd(110)) is investigated using surface sensitive techniques. The three systems studied present a variety of differing characteristics which can contribute to the growth mode, two-dimensional structure, and thermal stability of the films. The main factors contributing to the differing properties of the three systems presented here are: (1) the different substrate morphologies; (2) the d… more

An Ethnic Spring in the Food Desert? How State Policy Affects Food Environments and Business Entrepreneurships

Description: Data management plan for the grant, "An Ethnic Spring in the Food Desert? How State Policy Affects Food Environments and Business Entrepreneurships." In food system research, the reduced quality of one's food environment (the combination of food security and food access) is a direct symptom of social, political, and economic disparities. Our research has three primary objectives: Aim 1: To determine the role of state policy in the food environment of immigrant communities and communities of col… more

Base isolation: Fresh insight

Description: The objective of the research is a further development of the engineering concept of seismic isolation. Neglecting the transient stage of seismic loading results in a widespread misjudgement: The force of resistance associated with velocity is mostly conceived as a source of damping vibrations, though it is an active force at the same time, during an earthquake type excitation. For very pliant systems such as base isolated structures with relatively low bearing stiffness and with artificially a… more

NSFDEB-NERC: Collaborative Research: Wildlife corridors: do they work and who benefits?

Description: Data management plan for the grant, "NSFDEB-NERC: Collaborative Research: Wildlife corridors: do they work and who benefits?" Research on the impact of wildlife corridors using genetics as the measure of effectiveness. The study will use 20 independent landscapes to quantify how corridor traits affect gene flow, and will use non-flying mammals as focal species because they are strongly affected by fragmentation. The research team hypothesizes (1) a strong non-linear decline in success (gene flo… more
