  • Liu, Yan; Carbonell, Jaime; Gopalakrishnan, Vanathi; Weigele, Peter (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2009-05)
    Determining protein structures is crucial to understanding the mechanisms of infection and designing drugs. However, the elucidation of protein folds by crystallographic experiments can be a bottleneck in the development ...
  • DuPage, Michel; Brauneis, Alison L.; Jacks, Tyler E. (Nature Publishing Group, 2009-06)
    The development of animal models of lung cancer is critical to our understanding and treatment of the human disease. Conditional mouse models provide new opportunities for testing novel chemopreventatives, therapeutics and ...
  • Baek, Hyoung Su; Demanet, Laurent (IOP Publishing, 2012-04)
    This paper revisits the problem of recovering a smooth, isotropic, layered wave speed profile from surface traveltime information. While it is classic knowledge that the diving (refracted) rays classically determine the ...
  • Entekhabi, Dara; Wojcik, Rafal; McLaughlin, Dennis; Konings, Alexandra G. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, 2009-05)
    Temporally and spatially variable rainfall replicates are frequently required in hydrologic applications of ensemble forecasting and data assimilation. Ensemble methods can be expected to work better when the rainfall ...
  • Guerrero, R.; Aliev, F. G.; Villar, R.; Santos, Tiffany S.; Moodera, Jagadeesh; Dugaev, V. K.; Barnas, J. (American Physical Society, 2010-01)
    We report on dependence of conductance and tunnelling magnetoresistance on bias voltage at different temperatures down to 2 K in Co|Al[subscript 2]O[subscript 3](10 Å)|Si(δ)|Al[subscript 2]O[subscript 3](2 Å)|Permalloy ...
  • Mazzeo, G.; Yablonovitch, E.; Jiang, H. W.; Bai, Y.; Fitzgerald, Eugene A. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2010-05)
    Germanium rich heterostructures can constitute a valid alternative to Silicon for the confinement of single electron spins. The conduction band discontinuity in SiGe/Ge heterostructures grown on pure germanium substrate ...
  • Brenner, Howard (American Physical Society, 2014-04)
    “Diffuse interface” theories for single-component fluids—dating back to van der Waals, Korteweg, Cahn-Hilliard, and many others—are currently based upon an ad hoc combination of thermodynamic principles (built largely upon ...
  • Liu, Sheng; Liu, Yang; Cebeci, Hulya Geyik; Guzman de Villoria, Roberto; Lin, Jun-Hong; Wardle, Brian L. (SPIE, 2010-04)
    Several generations of ionic polymer metal composite (IPMC) actuators have been developed since 1992. It has been discovered that the composite electrodes which are composed of electronic and ionic conductors, have great ...
  • Ruppel, Carolyn; Scandella, Benjamin; Varadharajan, Charuleka; Hemond, Harold F.; Juanes, Ruben (American Geophysical Union, 2011-03)
    Methane is a potent greenhouse gas, but its effects on Earth's climate remain poorly constrained, in part due to uncertainties in global methane fluxes to the atmosphere. An important source of atmospheric methane is the ...
  • Mancini, Stefano; Braunstein, Samuel L.; Pirandola, Stefano; Lloyd, Seth (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-03)
    We consider the problem of privacy in direct communications, showing how quantum mechanics can be useful to guarantee a certain level of confidentiality. In particular, we review a continuous variable approach recently ...
  • Bubis, Roy; Kantor, Yacov; Kardar, Mehran (IOP Publishing, 2009-11)
    We study polymers attached to spherical (circular) or paraboloidal (parabolic) probes in three (two) dimensions. Both self-avoiding and random walks are examined numerically. The behavior of a polymer of size R[subscript ...
  • Gorsky, A.; Shifman, Mikhail; Yung, A. (American Physical Society, 2011-04)
    Non-Abelian strings exist in the color-flavor locked phase of dense QCD. We show that kinks appearing in the world-sheet theory on these strings, in the form of the kink-antikink bound pairs, are the magnetic monopoles—descendants ...
  • Nishida, Yusuke; Tan, Shina (American Physical Society, 2009-06)
    A Fermi-Fermi mixture of 40K and 6Li does not exhibit the Efimov effect in a free space, but the Efimov effect can be induced by confining only 40K in one dimension. Here the Efimov’s three-body parameter is controlled by ...
  • Nishida, Yusuke; Tan, Shina (American Physical Society, 2010-12)
    We show that a purely s-wave interaction in three dimensions (3D) can induce higher partial-wave resonances in mixed dimensions. We develop two-body scattering theories in all three cases of 0D-3D, 1D-3D, and 2D-3D mixtures ...
  • Spokoini, Rachel; Moldavski, Ofer; Nahmias, Yaakov; England, Jeremy L.; Schuldiner, Maya; Kaganovich, Daniel (Elsevier, 2012-09)
    The division of the S. cerevisiae budding yeast, which produces one mother cell and one daughter cell, is asymmetric with respect to aging. Remarkably, the asymmetry of yeast aging coincides with asymmetric inheritance of ...
  • Bayliss, Daniel D. R.; Winn, Joshua Nathan; Mardling, Rosemary A.; Sackett, Penny D. (Institute of Physics, 2010-10)
    We present high-precision radial velocity observations of WASP-17 throughout the transit of its close-in giant planet, using the MIKE spectrograph on the 6.5 m Magellan Telescope at Las Campanas Observatory. By modeling ...
  • Fang, Taotao; Buote, David A.; Humphrey, Philip J.; Canizares, Claude R.; Zappacosta, Luca; Maiolino, Roberto; Tagliferri, Gianpiero; Gastaldello, Fabio (IOP Publishing, 2010-04)
    In a previous paper, we reported a 3σ detection of an absorption line from the warm-hot intergalactic medium (WHIM) using the Chandra and XMM X-ray grating spectra of the blazar H2356-309, the sight line of which intercepts ...
  • Fang, Taotao; Canizares, Claude R.; Yao, Yangsen (IOP Publishing, 2007-08)
    We present new observations of PKS 2155-304 with the Chandra Low Energy Transmission Grating (LETG), using the Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer (ACIS). We confirm the detection of an absorption line plausibly identified ...
  • Jackiw, Roman; Pi, So-Young (American Physical Society, 2012-08)
    Extending previous work on two- and three-point functions, we study the four-point function and its conformal block structure in conformal quantum mechanics CFT[subscript 1], which realizes the SO(2,1) symmetry group. ...
  • Chesler, Paul; Lucas, Andrew; Sachdev, Subir (American Physical Society, 2014-01)
    We study (2+1)-dimensional conformal field theories (CFTs) with a globally conserved U(1) charge, placed in a chemical potential which is periodically modulated along the spatial direction x with zero average: μ(x)=V cos(kx). ...
