Characterization of magnetic nanoparticles as contrast agents and their application for quantitative magnetic susceptibility monitoring of the waterflooding of heavy oil in real timeDownload
Waterflooding is one enhanced oil recovery process used in heavy oil reservoirs such as at Cold Lake in North-Eastern Alberta. However, little has been published in terms of imaging heavy oil waterfloods, mainly due to the similar densities of water and heavy oil, which makes it difficult to...
Study of Methylammonium Lead Triiodide Intrinsic Stability and Solid-Solution behaviour in Mixed Halide Perovskite SystemsDownload
Over the last nine years, a new class of materials named lead halide perovskite has made a paradigm shift in the field of optoelectronic solution-processable low-cost and high-efficiency devices, with outstanding accomplishments especially in the ever-growing field of renewable solar energy...
Modeling, Analysis and Advanced Control of Voltage- and Current-Source Converters in Renewable Energy-Based Active Distribution SystemsDownload
This thesis addresses the integration of renewable energy resources into the grid-connected and isolated distribution systems using voltage- and current-source converters. Motivated by its promising potential and attractive features, a one-stage current-source converter (CSC) is selected as an...
Development of Poly(ethylene oxide)-block-poly(ε-caprolactone) based Micelles for Tumor Targeted Drug and siRNA DeliveryDownload
The use of nanotechnology has made significant advancements in cancer diagnosis and treatment. Polymeric micelles are a relatively new generation of nanocarriers mostly intended for the delivery of hydrophobic drugs. In this thesis, our objective was to develop an optimized polymeric micellar...
Developing a simple, general, and isothermal self-replicating system is one of the key requirements for a simplified detection platform for nucleic acid sequences specific to a disease causing microrganism. One of the challenges in achieving nucleic-acid templated isothermal amplification is that...
This work examines Rawls’s lectures on Hobbes, which are delivered at a time when Rawls is developing his political liberalism. It especially seeks to question the foundations of Rawls’s interpretation of Hobbes’s Leviathan as presenting a core “political” doctrine based around prudential egoism....
Multilateral systems involving haptic information sharing between several users have recently found interesting applications in cooperative haptic teleoperation and haptic-assisted training. It is intuitively understood that some tasks are performed more effectively with two hands or through...
An Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopic Diagnostic Device for Characterization of Liquid-Liquid Systems and Phase Separation Detection in EmulsionsDownload
Rapid characterization of complex fluids, especially sensing emulsion stability, is crucial for many industrial applications, ranging from pharmaceutical industry to petroleum production. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is a powerful tool for electrical characterization of such...
This research was aimed at developing porous ceramics as well as ceramic-metal composites that can be potentially used in Gen-IV supercritical water reactors (SCWR). The research mainly includes two parts: 1) fabricating and engineering the porous ceramics and porous ceramic-metal composite; 2)...
An Item Analysis of the Instability of Parent Report Scores on the Pediatric Evaluation of Disability InventoryDownload
Purpose: To evaluate item instability of the Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory – Functional Skills Scale completed by parents. Methods: Scoring instability was analyzed between baseline and after 6 months of intervention (T1-T2) on 113 children and between end of intervention and 3...
