      Brownstein, Joel Richard (University of Waterloo, 2009-08-13)
      Astrophysical data analysis of the weak-field predictions support the claim that modified gravity (MOG) theories provide a self-consistent, scale-invariant, universal description of galaxy rotation curves, without the need ...
    • Molecular movies and geometry reconstruction using Coulomb explosion imaging 

      Ramadhan, Ali (University of Waterloo, 2017-08-24)
      Coulomb explosion imaging is a technique of imaging the structure of small molecules in the gas phase and their ultrafast dynamics by inducing the rapid ionization and dissociation of the molecule into its constituent ...

    • Morphological and Multifractal Analyses of Retinal Amyloid Deposits for Staging in Alzheimer's Disease 

      Neathway, Peter Andrew Charles (University of Waterloo, 2020-02-12)
      Dementia is a neurodegenerative condition that leads to loss of cognitive ability, typically in older adults. Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and affects millions of people worldwide. The ...
    • Multifrequency Raman Generation in the Transient Regime 

      Turner, Fraser (University of Waterloo, 2006)
