(University of Waterloo, 2018-05-25)This study explores the potential of using different types of poly(ether block amide) (PEBA) membranes for recovering aroma compounds from dairy solutions and concentration of dairy products by membrane processes. The ...
Vaccinating pregnant women: Exploring midwive’s perspectives regarding vaccination in pregnancy in the Waterloo-Wellington Region. (University of Waterloo, 2018-05-25)Background: Within the Canadian context midwives play a crucial role in providing prenatal care for pregnant women and this encompasses vaccine recommendations. Although administration of vaccines is outside midwives’ scope ...
A path integral methodology for obtaining thermodynamic properties of nonadiabatic systems using Gaussian mixture distributions (American Institute of Physics, 2018-05)We introduce a new path integral Monte Carlo method for investigating nonadiabatic systems in thermal equilibrium and demonstrate an approach to reducing stochastic error. We derive a general path integral expression for ...
Examining the Effects of Exogenous Ketones on Exercise Metabolism and Performance in Male Varsity Athletes (University of Waterloo, 2018-05-24)Previous research has shown that administration of exogenous acetoacetate (AcAc), beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) and glucose in a perfused rodent heart model can increase cardiac output while reducing oxygen uptake compared ...
Above Bandgap Hyperpolarization Mechanism in Isotopically Purified Silicon and Optimal Bayesian Experiment Design for $T_1$ Estimation (University of Waterloo, 2018-05-24)This thesis is concerned with the mechanism underlying the above bandgap illumination Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) of phosphorus donors in isotopically purified silicon-28. Two proposed DNP models are introduced and ...
