Tissue storage affects lipidome profiling in comparison to in vivo microsampling approach
(Springer, 20180503)Lowinvasive in vivo solidphase microextraction (SPME) was used to investigate the lipid profiles of muscle tissue of living fish. Briefly, mixed mode SPME fibers were inserted into the muscle for 20 min extraction, and ... 
Tolerable Experimental Imperfections for a Quadrupole Blade Ion Trap and Practical Qudit Gates with Trapped Ions
(University of Waterloo, 20190926)Trapped ions are one of the leading technologies in quantum information technology due to their long coherence time and low noise presence. For trapping ions, there are a plethora of ion trap architectures. Among them ... 
Tools for the Security Analysis of Quantum Key Distribution in Infinite Dimensions
(University of Waterloo, 20210812)We develop a method to connect the infinitedimensional description of optical continuousvariable quantum key distribution (QKD) protocols to a finitedimensional formulation. The secure key rates of the optical QKD ... 
Topical anaesthetic use prior to rigid gas permeable contact lens fitting
(Elsevier, 20170711)Purpose To investigate effect of topical anaesthetic (TA) during gas permeable (GP) contact lens (CL) fitting on subjective and objective measures of patient anxiety. Methods 47 subjects (mean ± sd age = 26.9 ± 4.9 ... 
Topics in FaultTolerant Quantum Computation
(University of Waterloo, 20170112)This thesis contains the results of research projects broadly related to the pursuit of universal faulttolerant quantum computation. We are interested in questions such as which resources are required to achieve a quantum ... 
Topics in weak gravitational lensing
(University of Waterloo, 20220125)In this thesis, various topics pertaining to weak gravitational lensing and its application to cosmology and galaxy evolution are explored. The first chapter is the introduction which contains all of the background ... 
Topics on the information theoretic limits of quantum information processing and its implementation
(University of Waterloo, 20150224)Recent advances in quantum technologies enabled us to make large quantum states and pushed towards examining quantum theory at the macroscopic level. However observation of quantum e ects at a macroscopic level still ... 
Topological and superconducting properties of Weyl and Dirac metals
(University of Waterloo, 20180830)In this work we explore superconductivity and surface states in topological semimetals. We start from general overview of basic properties of topological semimetals. We review general concepts of Chern insulators, their ... 
Topological aspects of nodalloop semimetals and the nature of spinorbit coupling in Lu₂V₂O₇
(University of Waterloo, 20210927)This thesis is presented in two parts: (I) understanding the topological aspects of nodalloop semimetals in the presence of interactions and (II) exploring the nature of spinorbit coupling in the pyrochlore oxide Lu₂V₂O₇. ... 
Topological Manipulations of Quantum Field Theories
(University of Waterloo, 20230717)In this thesis we study some topological aspects of Quantum Field Theories (QFTs). In particular, we study the way in which an arbitrary QFT can be separated into “local” and “global” data by means of a “symmetry Topological ... 
Topological methods in quantum gravity
(University of Waterloo, 2005)The main technical problem with background independent approaches to quantum gravity is inapplicability of standard quantum field theory methods. New methods are needed which would be adapted to the basic principles ... 
Topological Order and Universal Properties of Gapped Quantum Systems
(University of Waterloo, 20181115)Phases of gapped quantum liquids are topologically ordered and have very interesting physical features that are completely robust against any local perturbation that do not close the bulk energy gap. These universal ... 
Topological Order in String Liquids and Weyl Semimetals
(University of Waterloo, 20220822)Outside Landau's paradigm of symmetrybreaking orders is the class of topological orders, which cannot be described by a local order parameters. Such orders are generally defined by the presence of a gauge symmetry and ... 
Topological Semimetals
(University of Waterloo, 20120831)This thesis describes two topological phases of matter, the Weyl semimetal and the line node semimetal, that are related to but distinct from topological insulator phases. These new topological phases are semimetallic, ... 
Topology and interactions in Weyl metals and quantum Hall systems
(University of Waterloo, 20170510)In recent years it became clear that in the Condensed Matter physics, the study of the interactions and the topology allows one to find and to describe many new phases of matter. Even more interest was drawn by the ... 
Topology in Fundamental Physics
(University of Waterloo, 20110902)In this thesis I present a mathematical tool for understanding the spin networks that arise from the study of the loop states of quantum gravity. The spin networks that arise in quantum gravity possess more information ... 
Total Retinal Blood Flow and Retinal Oxygen Saturation in the Major Retinal Vessels of Healthy Participants
(University of Waterloo, 20130927)Introduction: Oxygen delivery, or utilization, is a function of retinal blood flow and blood oxygen saturation. The retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), in particular, has been shown to have the highest levels of metabolic ... 
Toward a theory of everything
(University of Waterloo, 20230821)A physical theory of everything is supposed to tell us: (1) The dynamical laws for matter and gravity; (2) The boundary condition of the universe; (3) The relation between the theory and experience. I present a personal ...
