  • Rhodes, Donna H.; Lamb, Caroline Twomey (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-04)
    As the aerospace workforce braces itself for the 'silver tsunami,' more emphasis is needed on how to develop systems skills in engineering workforce research has shown this knowledge is tacit and based in experience. ...
  • Van Troyer, Akito Oshiro; Freeman, Jason (MIT Press, 2011-05)
    For us, text-based performance interfaces, such as those used in live coding systems (Collins et al. 2003), are a fascinating fusion of composition and improvisation. Textual performance interfaces can offer a precise and ...
  • Cholas, Rahmatullah; Hsu, Hu-Ping; Spector, Myron (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2012-07)
    A multifaceted therapeutic approach involving biomaterial scaffolds, neurotrophic factors, exogenous cells, and antagonists to axon growth inhibitors may ultimately prove necessary for the treatment of defects resulting ...
  • Gu, Nan; Rudner, Mark; Young, Andrea; Kim, Philip; Levitov, Leonid (American Physical Society, 2011-02)
    We describe a new regime of magnetotransport in two-dimensional electron systems in the presence of a narrow potential barrier. In such systems, the Landau level states, which are confined to the barrier region in strong ...
  • Benmelech, Efraim; Bergman, Nittai (Elsevier, 2008-11)
    We examine how collateral affects the cost of debt capital. Using a novel data set of secured debt issued by U.S. airlines, we construct industry-specific measures of collateral redeployability. We show that debt tranches ...
  • Ardon-Dryer, K.; Huang, Y.-w.; Cziczo, Daniel James (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013)
    Collection efficiency of submicron mineral dust particles by cloud droplets will be examined using the new Massachusetts Institute of Technology-Contact Freezing Chamber (MIT-CFC). Comparison of the collection efficiency ...
  • Susskind, Lawrence E.; Rumore, Danya Lee (2013-02)
    There are quite a few people in New York and New Jersey who want the government to do something. They want to make sure that the horrendous effects of Hurricane Sandy are not repeated in the years ahead. In the Northeast, ...
  • Yeh, Ka-Lo; Shin, Young-Han; Rappe, Andrew M.; Nelson, Keith Adam; Qi, Tingting (American Physical Society, 2009-01)
    We show that properly shaped terahertz (THz) fields can be used to move ions in ferroelectric crystals from their positions in an initial domain orientation along well-defined collective microscopic paths into the positions ...
  • Celi, Leo Anthony G.; Mark, Roger Greenwood; Lee, Joon; Scott, Daniel; Panch, Trishan (Korean Institute of Information Scientists and Engineers, 2012-03)
    We describe the framework of a data-fuelled, interdisciplinary team-led learning system. The idea is to build models using patients from one's own institution whose features are similar to an index patient as regards an ...
  • Nicodemus, Rebecca A.; Corcelli, S. A.; Skinner, J. L.; Tokmakoff, Andrei (American Chemical Society, 2011-03)
    We use temperature-dependent ultrafast infrared spectroscopy of dilute HOD in H2O to study the picosecond reorganization of the hydrogen bond network of liquid water. Temperature-dependent two-dimensional infrared (2D IR), ...
  • Tey, Meng Khoon; Sidorenkov, Leonid A.; Sanchez Guajardo, Edmundo R.; Grimm, Rudolf; Ku, Mark Jen-Hao; Zwierlein, Martin Wolfram; Hou, Yan-Hua; Pitaevskii, Lev; Stringarii, Sandro (American Physical Society, 2013-01)
    We provide a joint theoretical and experimental investigation of the temperature dependence of the collective oscillations of first sound nature exhibited by a highly elongated harmonically trapped Fermi gas at unitarity, ...
  • Zong, Hongxiang; Ding, Xiangdong; Lookman, Turab; Li, Ju; Sun, Jun; Cerreta, Ellen K.; Escobedo, J. P.; Addessio, Francis L.; Bronkhorst, Curt A.; Escobedo, A. P. (American Physical Society, 2014-06)
    An open question in the behavior of metals subjected to shock is the nature of the deformation that couples to the phase transformation process. Experiments to date cannot discriminate between the role of known deformation ...
  • Slotine, Jean-Jacques E.; Douglas, Rodney J.; Rutishauser, Ueli (MIT Press, 2011-02)
    The neocortex has a remarkably uniform neuronal organization, suggesting that common principles of processing are employed throughout its extent. In particular, the patterns of connectivity observed in the superficial ...
  • Zhang, Hao; McConnell, Robert Puryear; Cuk, Senka; Lin, Qian; Schleier-Smith, Monika H.; Leroux, Ian D.; Vuletic, Vladan (American Physical Society, 2012-09)
    We demonstrate single-atom resolution, as well as detection sensitivity more than 20 dB below the quantum projection noise limit, for hyperfine-state-selective measurements on mesoscopic ensembles containing 100 or more ...
  • Albert, M.; Marler, J. P.; Dantan, A.; Drewsen, M.; Herskind, Peter F. (American Physical Society, 2012-02)
    A detailed description and theoretical analysis of experiments achieving coherent coupling between an ion Coulomb crystal and an optical cavity field are presented. The various methods used to measure the coherent coupling ...
  • Giavazzi, Francesco; Garibaldi, Pietro; Ichino, Andrea; Rettore, Enrico (MIT Press, 2011-04)
    University tuition typically remains constant throughout the years of enrollment while delayed degree completion is increasingly a problem for academic institutions around the world. Theory suggests that if continuation ...
  • Hutchinson, Ian H.; Haakonsen, Christian Bernt (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013-08)
    The ion drag force arising from plasma flow past an embedded spherical grain is calculated self-consistently and non-linearly using particle in cell codes, accounting for ion-neutral collisions. Using ion velocity distribution ...
  • Soltero, Daniel Eduardo; Smith, Stephen L.; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-12)
    Persistent robot tasks such as monitoring and cleaning are concerned with controlling mobile robots to act in a changing environment in a way that guarantees that the uncertainty in the system (due to change and to the ...
  • Kaelbling, Leslie P.; Kochenderfer, Mykel J.; Temizer, Selim; Lozano-Perez, Tomas; Kuchar, James K. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2010-08)
    Before unmanned aircraft can fly safely in civil airspace, robust airborne collision avoidance systems must be developed. Instead of hand-crafting a collision avoidance algorithm for every combination of sensor and ...
  • Solovey, Erin S.; Jackson, Kimberly; Cummings, M. L. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012-10)
    Autonomous robots and vehicles can perform tasks that are unsafe or undesirable for humans to do themselves, such as investigate safety in nuclear reactors or assess structural damage to a building or bridge after an ...
