    • Cadmium Disruption of Neural Cadherin Dimerization 

      Williams, Garrett (2019-05-20)
      Cadherins are calcium-dependent cell-adhesion proteins that are vital to the formation and maintenance of solid tissues. Neural (N-) Cadherin plays an essential role in early development processes such as angiogenesis and ...
    • Promising Substrates for Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy 

      Jan, Bryan
      The goal of this study was to fabricate and characterize metal thin films of silver and aluminum to determine the effects of deposition thickness and deposition temperature on nanoparticle morphology and size. Chemical ...
    • Tip and Substrate Preparation for Tip-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy 

      Hamilton, Mary
      Tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS) combines scanning tunneling microscopy with Raman spectroscopy to obtain both the morphology and the chemical composition of molecules on a surface. A sharp noble metal tip acts as ...
