John Graham, Kinetics of Solid Phase Crystallization of a-Ge Thin Films: The study of semiconductors has never been more exciting. One semiconductor, called thin films, is an option for solar cell and infra-red detector construction. This new model explains the crystallization process of thin film Germanium, and develops a method to explore the physics behind solid state crystallization.
Mike Darrow, Finesse Measurement in Fabry-Perot Interferometers: Spacetime Asymmetry Research is an experimental satellite that measures anisotropy in the speed of light to unprecedented resolutions using two orthogonal FabryPerot interferometers. To achieve the desired level of precision, the optical cavities must have finesse values greater than 100,000. Two methods for measurement of finesse were tested: fullwidth half max measurement and the ringdown technique.
