Photolithography Patterning of Complementary Organic Circuits
The application of organic electronics to display technologies, large area electronic paper (or plastics), organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), organic solar cells, radio frequency identification tags, smart cards and ...
Characterisation of Travel Behaviour and Accessibility in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Car-dependent travel has posed economic, environmental, and social concerns worldwide. Existing transportation policy promotes a shift toward sustainable transportation through enhancing transit and active transportation ...
CONSUMERS’ DECISIONS ON CALORIES, FAT, AND CARBOHYDRATES WITH RESPECT TO FOOD PRICES AND EXPENDITURES
Obesity is a big health issue in the developed world, especially in the US. This has led to a call to implement policies to control obesity. The major materials thought to contribute to obesity are calories, fat, and ...
Modelling Biennial Bearing in Apple Trees
Many commercially grown apple cultivars have a biennial cropping habit, producing many small fruit in one year and few or none in the following year. The production of fruits is known to inhibit flower initiation for the ...
Using an Aural Classifier to Discriminate Cetacean Vocalizations
To positively identify marine mammals using passive acoustics, large volumes of data are often collected that need to be processed by a trained analyst. To reduce acoustic analyst workload, an automatic detector can be ...
Evaluation of an Aerobic Composting Process for the Management of Specified Risk Materials (SRM)
In Atlantic Canada, approximately 8000 tonnes of Specific Risk Materials (SRM) is produced annually. Composting offers a means to partially treat and stabilize SRM. In this project, different types of agricultural residuals ...
Identification and characterization of swarming sites used by bats in Nova Scotia
For insectivorous bats living in temperate areas such as Nova Scotia, underground sites are a critical resource for over-wintering, as well as for swarming in the late summer and early fall, which is when mating occurs. ...
Livable City: Filling in the Gaps of Instant Urbanism
A living city must exist at every scale - from the urban to the pedestrian; the development of the 21st century Instant City, however, does not allow for this multiplicity of scales. These cities emerge instead in a type ...
Neutral Signature CSI Spaces in Four Dimensions
Scalar curvature invariants are scalars formed by the contraction of the Riemann tensor and its covariant derivatives. The main motivation for studying scalar curvature invariants is that they can be used to classify ...
