    • Laser Irradiation of Tumors for the Treatment of Cancer: An Analysis of Blood Flow, Temperature and Oxygen Transport 

      Sood, Ravi; Nahlik, David; Nichols, Weston; Graham, Evan (2007-07-10)
      It has been shown that hypoxic tumor cells are resistant to radiation and that increasing tumor oxygen levels via laser-mediated hyperthermia treatment increases tumor cell radiosensitivity. Hence, studies of the effects ...
    • Laser-Induced Millisecond Heating Of Polymers And Small Molecules For Pattern Development 

      Jung, Byungki (2014-01-27)
      Microlithography and laser spike annealing (LSA) are key techniques that have enabled continued dimension scaling of transistors used in the semiconductor industry. As minimum feature sizes reach sub-20 nm scale in patterning, ...
    • Lasers And Landing Sites: The Geomorphology, Stratigraphy, And Composition Of Mars 

      Anderson, Ryan (2012-01-31)
      With each new mission to Mars, the amount of available data increases dramatically. This drastic increase in data volume requires new approaches to take advantage of the available information. The goal of the work presented ...

      Marcham, Frederick G. (Internet-First University Press, 2006)
      Prof. Marcham discusses his life and his Rules to Live By with the 1991 last meeting of a Cornell University course. Length 28:44.
    • Late Cenozoic tectonics of the Middle Atlas Mountains, Morocco: Continental deformation in the diffuse western Mediterranean plate boundary 

      Gomez, Francisco (Cornell University, 1999)
      The Atlas Mountains of North Africa, located in the African foreland of the Alpine mountain belts, comprise a 2,000 km long Cenozoic mountain chain whose development was guided by older Mesozoic rift structures. This ...
    • Late Cenozoic uplift along the northern Dead Sea transform in Lebanon and Syria 

      Gomez, F.; Khawlie, M.; Tabet, C.; Darkal, A.; Khair, K.; Barazangi, M. (Elsevier Science, 2006)
      Evidence of long-term, late Cenozoic uplift, as well as strike-slip faulting, is revealed by topographic and geological features along the northern 500 km of the Dead Sea fault system (DSFS)- the transform boundary between ...
    • Late Cenozoic Volcanism in the Hövsgöl Rift Basin: Source, Genesis, and Evolution of Intraplate Volcanism in Mongolia 

      Zuza, Andrew V. (2011-06-30)
      Diffuse, intraplate volcanic deposits are prevalent throughout Mongolia. This study sought to examine Late Cenozoic lavas (9.5-17.1 Ma) from the Hövsgöl rift basin in order to better understand their source, genesis, and ...
    • Late Modern Arabic Literature: Gender As Crucible Of Crisis 

      Hadeed, Khalid (2012-08-20)
      This dissertation explores the relation between gender and crisis in the late modern phase of Arabic literature-specifically, from the late 1960s to the present. Working with a regional Arab context, I define crisis as an ...
    • Latency- and Bandwidth-Minimizing Optimal Failure Detectors 

      So, Kelvin; Sirer, Emin Gun (Cornell University, 2006-05-01)
      Failure detectors are fundamental building blocks in distributed systems. Multi-node failure detectors, where the detector is tasked with monitoring other nodes, play a critical role in overlay networks and peer-to-peer ...
    • Latent factor regression models for grouped outcomes 

      Woodard, Dawn; Love, Tanzy; Thurston, Sally; Ruppert, David; Sathyanarayana, Sheela; Swan, Shanna (2012-01-31)
      We consider models for the effect of exposure on multiple outcomes, where the outcomes are nested in domains. We show that random effect models for this nested situation fit into a standard factor model framework, which ...
