Master of Science (MS)
The study of matter, chemical particulates, and microscopic organisms has been an area of interest to physicists, chemists, and biologists since the founding of the scientific method. When one has the ability to deconstruct larger complex systems into granular simplistic components, one may then reconstruct the system and understand the essence of how the system functions in its entirety.
The theory and applications of quantum mechanics have ushered in a new wave of image reconstruction methods which may shed light on certain biological species that have eluded the understanding of researchers for decades.
This dissertation will present methods which may be utilized to image magnetic fields and create forward models of colonies of magnetic bacteria in the hopes that future research will expand upon these methods for the greater good of biomedical studies.
