Process Quality Improvement in Thermosonic Wire Bonding
(University of Waterloo, 2008-08-15)
This thesis demonstrates the feasibility of methods developed to increase the quality of the crescent bond together with the tail bond quality. Low pull force of the crescent bond limits the usage of insulated Au wire in ...
Some Influences of Tribology in Resistance Spot Welding of Aluminum Alloys
(University of Waterloo, 2008-01-24)
The influence of the tribology during resistance spot welding (RSW) of aluminum alloy 5182 with spherical-tip electrode has been investigated at both the electrode-worksheet (E/W) and faying surface (FS) interfaces. In ...
Characterization of Carbon Nanotube Based Thin Film Field Emitter
(University of Waterloo, 2008-05-16)
In recent years, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have emerged as one of the best field emitters for a variety of technological applications. The field emitting cathodes have several advantages over the conventional thermionic ...
Factors Affecting Human Force Perception and Performance in Haptic-Enabled Virtual Environments
(University of Waterloo, 2009-05-22)
Haptic technology enables computer users to touch and/or manipulate virtual objects in virtual environments (VEs). Similar to other human-in-the-loop applications, haptic applications require interactions between humans ...
Augmenting Vehicle Localization with Visual Context
(University of Waterloo, 2009-04-30)
Vehicle self-localization, the ability of a vehicle to determine its own location, is vital for many aspects of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and telematics where it is often a building block in a more complex ...
