      Liptak, Zachary John (2014-05)
      Using the NEMO-3 detector, 410.4 g of ¹¹⁶Cd with a total exposure of 1.65 kg• y and 932 g of ⁸²Se with a total exposure of 3.75 kg• y were used to measure the half-life of two-neutrino double beta decay (2[nu][beta][beta]) ...
    • A search for periodic variations in pulse arrival times in DA white dwarfs 

      Hermes, James Joseph, Jr. (2010-08)
