We examine the long-term evolution of accretion tori around the remnants of compact object mergers and the explosions of highly magnetized massive stars to better understand their roles in the creation of optical transients and the synthesis of r-process elements. We begin by modifying the...
Cataclysmic variables (CVs) are binary stellar systems with a white dwarf (WD) and a companion star that is losing mass to the WD. When the magnetic field of the WD is strong enough, the accreting matter follows its magnetic field lines then falls near a magnetic pole. This leads to emission of...
In this thesis we study X-ray millisecond pulsars (MSPs) in the Galactic globular clusters (GCs) to better understand the X-ray emission from them. We analyze 55 ks and 290 ks of Chandra X-ray observations of the clusters M13 and Omega Cen, respectively. We find confident X-ray counterparts to...
Whispering gallery modes in layered microspheres: mode structure, thermal response, and reactive sensingDownload
This thesis focuses on the physics of the whispering gallery modes (WGMs) of silica microspheres coated with a layer of fluorescent silicon quantum dots (Si QDs). The basic theory associated with these structures was explored, and we showed how the important physical parameters such as the...
Wellbore seismic and core sample measurement analysis: integrated geophysical study of the Lake Bosumtwi impact structure, GhanaDownload
Wellbore seismic measurements were recorded in the Lake Bosumtwi impact structure, Ghana, in 2004. A full range of petrophysical measurements were also performed in the laboratory on core samples from the same boreholes. The Vertical Seismic Profile shows low velocities for both P and S waves in...
