Pollution Abatement R&D Investment Under Different Market Structures and Regulatory Regimes
In this dissertation, I explore how the incentives for firms to invest in green technology are affected by changes in market structure and regulation. In the first chapter, I use an entry-deterrence model in which the ...
Solute-solute interactions in intermetallic compounds studied using perturbed angular correlation of gamma rays
Interactions between pairs of solute atoms dissolved in a binary intermetallic compound were studied. Perturbed angular correlation of gamma rays (PAC) was used to detect solute atoms next to impurity PAC probe atoms in ...

The Rule of Law: An Examination of Judicial Discretion in Terrorism Appeals
Prosecuting terrorism has proven to be difficult for the criminal justice system in recent decades. Moreover, terrorists are qualitatively different than traditional criminals. As a result, certain complexities arise that ...
High Yield Fission Product Separations and Quantification For Nuclear Forensic Applications
Strontium-90 and its daughter, yttrium-90, have cumulative fission yields of approximately 6 percent from the thermal neutron induced fission of uranium-235. With these high yields, Sr and Y are prevalent following an ...
PROFILING DILUENT/EXTRACTANT/LANTHANIDE COMPLEX INTERACTIONS IN ADVANCED TALSPEAK SEPARATION SYSTEMS
Solvent extraction has generally been the method of choice for the reprocessing of used nuclear fuel. Fundamentally, solvent extraction is based on the differences in solubility of chemical species dissolved in a biphasic ...
TECHNETIUM (IV) COMPLEXATION CHEMISTRY WITH POLYAMINO POLYCARBOXYLATE LIGANDS
99Technetium (t½ = 2.1×105 y) constitutes approximately 6.1% of the cumulative yield of thermal 235U thermal fission. In the +7 oxidation state, technetium has high aqueous solubility and forms the anionic structure TcO4- ...
