Electron-photon interactions in quantum dots : coupled oscillators
A coupled oscillator model is developed for the far infra-red response of a quantum dot, and this model is used to predict the vacuum-held Rabi splittings of a dot-cavity system.
Petrography and mineralogy of the Lac de Gras kimberlite field, Slave Province, Northwest Territories : a comparative study
The kimberlites studied from the Lac de Gras area are composed o f two broad textural types: hypabyssal kimberlite and volcaniclastic kimberlite. Hypabyssal kimberlite is present within small isolated dyke segments and ...
Panic attacks, hypochondriacal concerns, and selective processing of threat cues
Cognitive theories of panic disorder and hypochondriasis were investigated using a modification of the Stroop Colour-naming Task. Sixty-two participants were divided into four groups (hypochondriacal panickers, ...
Effect of gustatory stimulation on endurance performance
The purpose of this study was to determine whether the ingestion of an energy-free aspartame beverage (ASP) (99 mg aspartame/L) would influence endurance performance relative to a water (WAT) trial. Nine trained male ...
Effects of oral contraceptives on daily self-ratings of positive and negative affect
The present study examined whether duration of oral contraceptive (OC) use could account for the inconsistent findings of previous studies on the relationship between affect and OC use. This study was the first to ...
Workshop intervention approach to nursing stress management
This research project presented a total of six twelve-hour stress management workshops to twenty-eight female registered nurses. They were recruited from general hospitals, medical offices, and nursing homes. Topics ...
Effectiveness of dispute resolution mechanisms in natural resource management in Ontario
For a variety of reasons, the number and complexity of natural resource management conflicts in Ontario is increasing rapidly. To evaluate the premise that existing natural resource management planning processes are ...
Stratigraphic architecture of a paleoproterozoic iron formation depositional system : the Gunflint, Mesabi and Cuyuna iron ranges
Understanding iron formation depositional processes has been hindered by the lack of precise modern analogues. However, by combining a regional basin analysis of sedimentary and volcanic rocks surrounding an iron formation ...
Experiences of seven alumni who attended Shingwauk Residential School as children 1929-1964
This oral history report documents the recollected experiences of seven Native"students" who attended Shingwauk Residential School between 1929 and 1964. From qualitative analyses of transcripts three general themes emerged: ...
Factors that predict brook trout distribution, thermal habitat, and abundance in Northwestern Ontario streams
Predictive models were developed to improve the understanding of stream-resident brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) populations and habitat in northwestern Ontario, and to facilitate protection of stream-resident brook ...
