This thesis explores the dynamics and sensing performance of silicon quantum dot (SiQD) ensembles coupled to the whispering gallery modes (WGMs) of spherical and cylindrical microcavities. The first project investigated the possibility of observing Purcell effects in an ensemble of QDs coupled to...
High efficiency and low NOx emissions make Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) promising for use in internal combustion engines. Combining HCCI with Spark Ignition (SI) allows for extension of the engine’s operating range. A Physics-based Mode Switch Model (PMSM) of SI-HCCI mode...
Sensitivity of Leptosphaeria maculans isolates to pyraclostrobin and assessment of fungicide efficacy in the management of blackleg of canolaDownload
Blackleg (Leptosphaeria maculans) disease is endemic to canola (Brassica napus) worldwide. With shortened canola rotations and increasing levels of blackleg in Alberta, Canada, growers may look to fungicides as an attractive disease management tool. However, the improper or intensive use of...
