    • Testing classical and quantum theory with single photons 

      Mazurek, Michael (University of Waterloo, 2018-01-19)
      To date, quantum theory is the most successful physical theory that has been discovered. However, there is still the possibility that an inconsistency between experimental observations and the predictions of quantum theory ...
    • Testing the Extremes of Initial Mass Function Variability using Compact Stellar Systems 

      Cheng, Chloe Mai Tam (University of Waterloo, 2022-07-29)
      The initial mass function (IMF) is a cornerstone in star formation and galaxy evolution studies. It has traditionally been assumed to be universal, but this has been challenged by increasingly detailed observations of ...

      Mahmoudi, Pendar; Forrest, William; Beardsley, Tom; Matsen, Mark (2018)
      This study addresses entropic segregation effects at the surfaces of monodisperse and bidisperse melts. For the monodisperse melts, we focus on the segregation of chain ends to the surface, and for the bidisperse melts, ...

    • The TFOS International Workshop on Contact Lens Discomfort: Executive Summary 

      Nichols, Jason J.; Willcox, Mark D. P.; Bron, Anthony J.; Belmonte, Carlos; Ciolino, Joseph B.; Craig, Jennifer P.; Dogru, Murat; Foulks, Gary N.; Jones, Lyndon W.; Nelson, J. Daniel; Nichols, Kelly K.; Purslow, Christine; Schaumberg, Debra A.; Stapleton, Fiona; Sullivan, David A. (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, 2013-10-18)
      Contact lens discomfort (CLD) is a frequently experienced problem, with most estimates suggesting that up to half of contact lens wearers experience this problem with some frequency or magnitude. This condition impacts ...
    • The TFOS International Workshop on Contact Lens Discomfort: Introduction 

      Nichols, Jason J.; Jones, Lyndon W.; Nelson, J. Daniel; Stapleton, Fiona; Sullivan, David A.; Willcox, Mark D. P. (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, 2013-10-18)
      For many years, the contact lens field had focused on safety associated with contact lens wear—and for good reason, given the lack of understanding of the risk factors and etiology of serious complications such as microbial ...
    • The TFOS International Workshop on Contact Lens Discomfort: Report of the Contact Lens Interactions With the Ocular Surface and Adnexa Subcommittee 

      Efron, Nathan; Jones, Lyndon W.; Bron, Anthony J.; Knop, Erich; Arita, Reiko; Barabino, Stefano; McDermott, Alison M.; Villani, Edoardo; Willcox, Mark D. P.; Markoulli, Maria (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, 2013-10-18)
      The report of this subcommittee concerns the impact of contact lenses (CLs) on the ocular surface, with a particular emphasis on CL discomfort (CLD). We define the ocular surface, its regional anatomy, and the physiological ...
    • The TFOS International Workshop on Contact Lens Discomfort: Report of the Contact Lens Materials, Design, and Care Subcommittee

      Stasiak, Pawel (University of Waterloo, 2009-12-18)
      Several magnetic materials, in the first approximation, can be described by idealised theoretical models, such as classical Ising or Heisenberg spin systems, and, to some extent, such models are able to qualitatively expose ...
