  • Reinke, Matthew Logan; Rice, John E.; White, Anne E.; Greenwald, Martin J.; Howard, Nathaniel Thomas; Ennever, Paul Chappell; Hubbard, Amanda E.; Hughes, Jerry W.; Gao, Chi (IOP Publishing, 2013-01)
    The physical mechanisms that cause tokamak plasmas to rotate toroidally without external momentum input are of considerable interest to the plasma physics community. This paper documents a substantial change in both the ...
  • Kang, Eunsuk; Jackson, Daniel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-11)
    An approach is suggested for arguing that a system is dependable. The key idea is to structure the system so that critical requirements are localized in small, reliable subsets of the system's components called trusted ...
  • Abernathey, Ryan Patrick; Marshall, John C.; Ferreira, David (American Meteorological Society, 2011-12)
    An eddy-resolving numerical model of a zonal flow, meant to resemble the Antarctic Circumpolar Current, is described and analyzed using the framework of J. Marshall and T. Radko. In addition to wind and buoyancy forcing ...
  • Feng, Wen; Crawley, Edward F.; de Weck, Olivier L.; Keller, Rene; Robinson, Bob (Design Society, 2010)
    This paper develops a qualitative/quantitative network approach, namely a “Stakeholder Value Network”, to understand the impacts of both direct and indirect relationships between stakeholders on the success of large ...
  • Fox, Jacob; Sudakov, Benny (Wiley Blackwell (John Wiley & Sons), 2010-11)
    We describe a simple and yet surprisingly powerful probabilistic technique which shows how to find in a dense graph a large subset of vertices in which all (or almost all) small subsets have many common neighbors. Recently ...
  • Hajiaghayi, Mohammad Taghi; Bredin, Jonathan L.; Demaine, Erik D.; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-02)
    We consider the problem of deploying or repairing a sensor network to guarantee a specified level of multipath connectivity (k-connectivity) between all nodes. Such a guarantee simultaneously provides fault tolerance against ...
  • Liu, Tianshu; Nink, Jacob; Merati, Parviz; Tian, Tian; Li, Yong; Shieh, Tom (Springer Science + Business Media B.V., 2009-12)
    The fluid mechanics of the deposition of micron liquid (olive oil) droplets on a glass wall in an impinging turbulent air jet is studied experimentally. The spatial patterns of droplets deposited on a wall are measured by ...
  • Lanman, D; Wetzstein, G; Hirsch, M; Raskar, Ramesh; Wetzstein, G.; Lanman, D.; Hirsch, M. (IOP Publishing, 2013-02)
    With the re-emergence of stereoscopic displays, through polarized glasses for theatrical presentations and shuttered liquid crystal eyewear in the home, automultiscopic displays have received increased attention. Commercial ...
  • Rubner, Michael F.; Cohen, Robert E.; Gilbert, Jonathan Brian (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-04)
    Functional organic thin films often demand precise control over the nanometer-level structure. Interlayer diffusion of materials may destroy this precise structure; therefore, a better understanding of when interlayer ...
  • Fabbri, Filippo; Smith, Matthew J.; Recht, Daniel; Aziz, Michael J.; Salviati, Giancarlo; Gradecak, Silvija (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013-01)
    We investigate the luminescence of Si supersaturated with S (Si:S) using depth-resolved cathodoluminescence spectroscopy and secondary ion mass spectroscopy as the S concentration is varied over 2 orders of magnitude ...
  • Srinivasan, Vivek J.; Sakadžic, Sava; Gorczynska, Iwona; Ruvinskaya, Svetlana; Wu, Weicheng; Fujimoto, James G.; Boas, David A. (Optical Society of America, 2009-10)
    We describe depth-resolved microscopy of cortical hemodynamics with high-speed spectral/Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (OCT). Stimulus-evoked changes in blood vessel diameter, flow, and total hemoglobin were ...
  • So, Peter T. C.; Kim, Daekeun (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-11)
    Nonlinear microscopic imaging is relatively slow due to the sequential nature of raster scanning. Recently, this limitation was overcome by developing a 3D-resolved wide-field two-photon microscope based on the concept of ...
  • Till, Christy B.; Grove, Timothy L.; Carlson, Richard W.; Donnelly-Nolan, Julie M.; Fouch, Matthew J.; Wagner, Lara S.; Hart, William K. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2013-04)
    Plagioclase and spinel lherzolite thermometry and barometry are applied to an extensive geochemical dataset of young (<10.5 Ma) primitive basaltic lavas from across Oregon's High Lava Plains, California's Modoc Plateau, ...
  • Kirkpatrick, Kay; Schlein, Benjamin; Staffilani, Gigliola (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2011-02)
    We derive rigorously, for both ${\Bbb R}^2$ and $[{-}L,L]^{\times 2}$, the cubic nonlinear Schr\"odinger equation in a suitable scaling limit from the two-dimensional many-body Bose systems with short-scale repulsive pair ...
  • Rigby, Matthew; Ganesan, Anita Lakshmi; Prinn, Ronald G. (American Geophysical Union, 2011-04)
    A growth-based Bayesian inverse method is presented for deriving emissions of atmospheric trace species from temporally sparse measurements of their mole fractions. This work is motivated by many recent studies that have ...
  • Shi, Jiancheng; Chen, K. S.; Tsang, L.; Jackson, T.; Njoku, E.; Van Zyl, J.; O'Neill, P.; Entekhabi, Dara; Johnson, J.; Moghaddam, M. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-12)
    In this study, we develop a combined active/passive technique to estimate surface soil moisture with the focus on the short vegetated surfaces. We first simulated a database for both active and passive signals under SMAP's ...
  • Frebel, Anna L.; Casey, Andrew R.; Jacobson, Heather; Yu, Qinsi (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2013-05)
    It is well established that stellar effective temperatures determined from photometry and spectroscopy yield systematically different results. We describe a new, simple method to correct spectroscopically derived temperatures ...
  • Ploegh, Hidde; Kim, Jun; Dougan, Stephanie K.; Hu, Chih-Chi Andrew; Paquet, Marie-Eve; Greenblatt, Matthew B.; Lilley, Brendan N.; Watson, Nicki (American Society for Microbiology, 2011-01)
    Protein quality control is a balance between chaperone-assisted folding and removal of misfolded proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Cell-based assays have been used to identify key players of the dislocation ...
  • Cuthbert, Michael Scott (Music Library Association, 2009-06)
    A new facsimile of a half-millennium-old manuscript needs to know who its audience will be. Reproductions of stunningly beautiful sources, such as the Squarcialupi Codex or the newly available Chansonnier Cordiforme, ...
  • Lee, Jongho; Karnik, Rohit N. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2010-08)
    We propose a new approach to desalination of water whereby a pressure difference across a vapor-trapping nanopore induces selective transport of water by isothermal evaporation and condensation across the pore. Transport ...
