  • Critchfield, Agatha S.; Yao, Grace; Jaishankar, Aditya; Lieleg, Oliver; Doyle, Patrick S.; House, Michael; Ribbeck, Katharina; Friedlander, Ronn Samuel; McKinley, Gareth H. (Public Library of Science, 2013-08)
    Background: Ascending infection from the colonized vagina to the normally sterile intrauterine cavity is a well-documented cause of preterm birth. The primary physical barrier to microbial ascension is the cervical canal, ...
  • Krauss, Miriam; Roussanova, Anna; Vaz, Amali (IOP Publishing, 2009-07)
    We present multiband photometry of 185 type-Ia supernovae (SNe Ia), with over 11,500 observations. These were acquired between 2001 and 2008 at the F. L. Whipple Observatory of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics ...
  • Wood-Vasey, W. M.; Marion, G. Howie; Challis, Peter; Mandel, Kaisey S.; Bloom, Joshua S.; Modjaz, Maryam; Narayan, Gautham; Hicken, Malcolm; Foley, Ryan J.; Klein, Christopher R.; Starr, Dan L.; Morgan, Adam N.; Rest, Armin; Blake, Cullen H.; Miller, Adam A.; Falco, Emilio E.; Wyatt, William F.; Mink, Jessica; Skrutskie, Michael F.; Kirshner, Robert P.; Friedman, Andrew Samuel (2015-09)
    CfAIR2 is a large, homogeneously reduced set of near-infrared (NIR) light curves (LCs) for Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) obtained with the 1.3 m Peters Automated InfraRed Imaging TELescope. This data set includes 4637 ...
  • Johnson, Micah K.; Dale, Kevin; Avidan, Shai; Pfister, Hanspeter; Freeman, William T.; Matusik, Wojciech (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-09)
    Computer-generated (CG) images have achieved high levels of realism. This realism, however, comes at the cost of long and expensive manual modeling, and often humans can still distinguish between CG and real images. We ...
  • Smith, Beverly J.; Swartz, Douglas A.; Miller, Olivia; Burleson, Jacob A.; Nowak, Michael A.; Struck, Curtis (Institute of Physics/American Astronomical Society, 2012-06)
    We have conducted a statistical analysis of the ultra-luminous X-ray point sources (ULXs; LX ≥ 10[superscript 39] erg s–1) in a sample of galaxies selected from the Arp Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies. We find a possible ...
  • Bonillo Fernandez, Baltasar; Swager, Timothy Manning (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-11)
    Lewis acids promote the polymerization of several 2-chloroalkylenedioxythiophenes, providing high-molecular-weight conjugated polymers. The proposed mechanism is a cationic chain-growth polymerization, as confirmed by ...
  • Mistree, Behram F. T.; Paradiso, Joseph A. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010-01)
    The ChainMail system is a scalable electronic sensate skin that is designed as a dense sensor network. ChainMail is built from small (1"x1") rigid circuit boards attached to their neighbors with flexible interconnects that ...
  • Fujimoto, James G.; Jasanoff, Alan Pradip; So, Peter T. C. (Elsevier, 2013-10)
    The Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative has focused scientific attention on the necessary tools to understand the human brain and mind. Here, we outline our collective vision ...
  • Poterba, James M. (Economic and Social Studies Institute, 2010-01)
    Roy Geary spent his career using applied economic analysis to tackle important questions in public policy. I am deeply honoured to join the list of previous Geary lecturers who have celebrated the memory of such an important ...
  • Palacios, Tomas (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    This talk describes some successful Industry/University collaboration models currently being used at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
  • Lelyveld, Victor S.; Jasanoff, Alan Pradip; Atanasijevic, Tatjana (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2010-02)
    Magnetic resonance (MRI)-based molecular imaging methods are beginning to have impact in neuroscience. A growing number of molecular imaging agents have been synthesized and tested in vitro, but so far relatively few have ...
  • Chevrier, Vincent L.; Ceder, Gerbrand (Electrochemical Society, 2011-07)
    Na-ion batteries have been proposed as candidates for replacing Li-ion batteries. In this paper we examine the viability of Na-ion negative electrode materials based on Na alloys or hard carbons in terms of volumetric ...
  • Knittel, Christopher Roland; Metaxoglou, Konstantinos (American Economic Association, 2011-05)
    In this paper, we share our experience with merger simulations using a Random Coefficient Logit model on the demand side and assuming a static Bertrand game on the supply side. Drawing largely from our work in Knittel and ...
  • McCammon, Jasmine M.; Sive, Hazel L. (Company of Biologists, 2015-06)
    The treatment of psychiatric disorders presents three major challenges to the research and clinical community: defining a genotype associated with a disorder, characterizing the molecular pathology of each disorder and ...
  • Tsukamoto, Kosuke; Kocher, Olivier; Krieger, Monty; Buck, Lorenna Dianne; Griffith, Linda G.; Inman, Samuel Walker (Public Library of Science, 2013-07)
    Background: PDZK1 is a four PDZ-domain containing cytoplasmic protein that binds to a variety of membrane proteins via their C-termini and can influence the abundance, localization and/or function of its target proteins. ...
  • Bouma, Brett E.; Tearney, Guillermo J.; Tanaka, Atsushi (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2010-03)
    Cellularity of the fibrous caps of coronary atheromas, manifested by the infiltration of macrophages (average size, 20 to 30 [micrometer]), is thought to weaken the structural integrity of the cap and predispose plaques ...
  • Straneo, Fiammetta; Heimbach, Patrick; Sergienko, Olga; Hamilton, Gordon; Catania, Ginny; Griffies, Stephen; Hallberg, Robert; Jenkins, Adrian; Joughin, Ian; Motyka, Roman; Pfeffer, W. Tad; Price, Stephen F.; Rignot, Eric; Scambos, Ted; Truffer, Martin; Vieli, Andreas (American Meteorological Society, 2013-08)
    The recent retreat and speedup of outlet glaciers, as well as enhanced surface melting around the ice sheet margin, have increased Greenland's contribution to sea level rise to 0.6 ± 0.1 mm yr[superscript −1] and its ...
  • Zhao, Jing; Nair, Gautham Padmanabhan; Fisher, Brent R.; Bawendi, Moungi G. (American Physical Society, 2010-04)
    Semiconductor nanocrystals emit light intermittently; i.e., they “blink,” under steady illumination. The dark periods have been widely assumed to be due to photoluminescence (PL) quenching by an Auger-like process involving ...
  • Paradiso, Joseph A.; Zoran, Amit Shlomo (Informa UK (Taylor & Francis), 2011-03)
    Each acoustic instrument is one of a kind. Its unique acoustic properties are transferred from the physical characteristics of its source materials and a handcrafted touch. In contrast, electronic and computer-based ...
