  • Loke, Y.W.; Tor, Shu Beng; Chun, Jung-Hoon; Loh, N.H.; Hardt, David E. (2007-01)
    There is shift in trend towards the use of high quality polymers as the base material in manufacturing microfluidic chips. In this paper, an amorphous metallic alloy mold insert was used in a micro injection-molding process ...
  • Zheng, J.X.; Ceder, Gerbrand; Chim, Wai Kin; Choi, Wee Kiong (2007-01)
    In this study, the native point defects including oxygen vacancy and interstitial, metal (La, Al) vacancy and interstitial, and metal antisite in perovskite LAO are studied. Defect formation energies are studied as a ...
  • Nigham, Anshul; Hsu, David; Latombe, Jean-Claude (2007-01)
    In this work, we propose a radical approach for exploring the space of all possible protein structures. We present techniques to explore the clash-free conformation space, which comprises all protein structures whose atoms ...
  • Tor, Shu Beng; Loh, N.H.; Fu, G.; Tay, B.Y. (2007-01)
    In this paper experimental study on the demolding force needed to eject micro structures in Micro Metal Injection Molding (μMIM) is conducted. Injection molding is done on a variotherm mold mounted on a Battenfeld injection ...
  • Tan, Alex Y.K.; Patera, Anthony T. (2007-01)
    We solve the 2nd order wave equation, hyperbolic and linear in nature, for the pressure distribution of one-dimensional seismic problem with smooth initial pressure and rate of pressure change. The reduced basis method, ...
  • Xia, H.; Meng, Shirley Y.; Lu, Li; Ceder, Gerbrand (2007-01)
    Preferred c-axis oriented LiCoO₂ thin films were prepared on the SiO₂/Si (SOS) substrates by pulsed laser deposition (PLD). Thin film electrodes without carbon and binder are ideal samples to study the electrochemical ...
  • Nguyen, Huu Hai; David, Cristina; Qin, Shengchao; Chin, Wei Ngan (2007-01)
    Despite their popularity and importance, pointer based programs remain a major challenge for program verification. In this paper, we propose an automated verification system that is concise, precise and expressive for ...
  • Ayyadurai, Shiva; Dewey, C. Forbes (2007-01)
    Biomolecular pathways are building blocks of cellular biochemical function. Computational biology is in rapid transition from diagrammatic representation of pathways to quantitative and predictive mathematical models, which ...
  • Zhao, Qin; Amarasinghe, Saman P.; Rabbah, Rodric M.; Rudolph, Larry; Wong, Weng Fai (2007-01)
    Application debugging is a tedious but inevitable chore in any software development project. An effective debugger can make programmers more productive by allowing them to pause execution and inspect the state of the ...
  • Tajan, John Benedict Cheng; Sivakumar, Appa Iyer; Gershwin, Stanley B. (2007-01)
    Consider a two-stage manufacturing system composed of a batch processor and its upstream feeder processor. Jobs exit the feeder processor and join a queue in front of the batch processor, where they wait to be processed. ...
  • Fu, X.L.; Li, Yi; Schuh, C.A. (2007-01)
    The homogeneous deformation of Zr-based bulk metallic glass composites is studied near the glass transition temperature, at various levels of reinforcement volume fraction. Through examination of the constitutive response, ...
  • Chieu, Hai Leong (2007-01)
    The Survey Propagation (SP) algorithm [1] has recently been shown to work well in the hard region for random K-SAT problems. SP has its origins in sophisticated arguments in statistical physics, and can be derived from an ...
  • Fu, G.; Reading, I.; Li, S.G.; Chaturvedi, P.; Tor, Shu Beng; Yoon, Soon Fatt; Fang, Z.P.; Youcef-Toumi, Kamal (2007-01)
    The mass production of components with dimensions in the micron and sub-micron range is anticipated to be one of the leading technology areas for the present century and to be of high market potential. Micro metal injection ...
  • Kua, C.H.; Lam, Yee Cheong; Rodriguez, I.; Youcef-Toumi, Kamal; Yang, C. (2007-01)
    This study presents a technique to manipulate particles in microchannels using arrays of individually excitable electrodes. These electrodes were energized sequentially to form a non-uniform electric field that moved along ...
  • Pong, Boon Kin; Trout, Bernhardt L.; Lee, Jim Yang (2007-01)
    We functionalised core-shell CdSe/ZnS quantum dots (QDots) with short-chain 3-mercaptopropionic acid (3MPA) to render these nanocrystalline semiconductor water-soluble. The ligand-exchange reaction was significantly improved ...
  • Dai, K.Y.; Liu, Guirong (2007-01)
    In this paper, the smoothed finite element method (SFEM) is proposed for 2D elastic problems by incorporation of the cell-wise strain smoothing operation into the conventional finite elements. When a constant smoothing ...
  • Ooi, Beng Chin; Yu, Bei; Li, Guoliang (2007-01)
    In this paper, we present a folksonomy-based collaborative data publishing and searching system. The system accepts data objects described with user-created metadata, called data units. The system supports flexible structure ...
  • He, Yuxiong; Hsu, Wen Jing; Leiserson, Charles E. (2007-01)
    Scheduling competing jobs on multiprocessors has always been an important issue for parallel and distributed systems. The challenge is to ensure global, system-wide efficiency while offering a level of fairness to user ...
  • Li, Zirui; Liu, Guirong; Chen, Yuzong; Wang, Jian-Sheng; Hadjiconstantinou, Nicolas; Cheng, Y.; Han, J. (2007-01)
    Linear thermodynamics transportation theory is employed to study filtration of rodlike DNA molecules. Using the repeated nanoarray consisting of alternate deep and shallow regions, it is demonstrated that the complex ...
