  • Song, Justin Chien Wen; Reizer, Michael Y.; Levitov, Leonid (American Physical Society, 2012-09)
    We predict that graphene is a unique system where disorder-assisted scattering (supercollisions) dominates electron-lattice cooling over a wide range of temperatures, up to room temperature. This is so because for ...
  • Adams, Allan; Yaida, Sho (American Physical Society, 2014-08)
    We continue our study of quenched disorder in holographic systems, focusing on the effects of mild electric disorder. By studying the renormalization group evolution of the disorder distribution at subleading order in ...
  • Carlton, Chris E.; Kuryak, Chris Adam; Liu, Wei-shu; Ren, Zhifeng; Chen, Gang; Shao-Horn, Yang (American Institute of Physics, 2012-11)
    N-type Bi₂Te₂.₇Se₀.₃ bulk thermoelectric materials with peak ZT values up to ∼1 were examined by transmission electron microscopy and electron diffraction. Two nanostructural features were found: (i) a structural modulation ...
  • Rodriguez-Nieva, J. F.; Barros, E. B.; Saito, R.; Dresselhaus, Mildred (American Physical Society, 2014-12)
    An analytical study is presented of the double resonant Raman scattering process in graphene, responsible for the D and D′ features in the Raman spectra. This work yields analytical expressions for the D and D′ integrated ...
  • Duflo, Esther; Banerjee, Abhijit (American Economic Association, 2014-05)
    Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) present the potential to deliver high quality education to a large number of students. But they suffer from low completion rates. This paper identifies disorganization as a factor behind ...
  • Zeng, Lingping; Chen, Gang (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2014-08)
    We report disparate quasiballistic heat conduction trends for periodic nanoscale line heaters deposited on a substrate, depending upon whether measurements are based on the peak temperature of the heaters or the temperature ...
  • Shapiro, Jeffrey H. (American Physical Society, 2010-02)
    Franson’s paradigm for nonlocal dispersion cancellation [J. D. Franson, Phys. Rev. A 45, 3126 (1992)] is studied using two kinds of jointly Gaussian-state signal and reference beams with phase-sensitive cross correlations. ...
  • Siber, A.; Rajter, Richard F.; French, R. H.; Ching, W. Y.; Parsegian, V. A.; Podgornik, R. (American Physical Society, 2009-10)
    We derive the complete form of the van der Waals dispersion interaction between two infinitely long anisotropic semiconducting/insulating thin cylinders at all separations. The derivation is based on the general theory of ...
  • Vydrov, Oleg A.; Van Voorhis, Troy (American Physical Society, 2010-06)
    A local approximation for dynamic polarizability leads to a nonlocal functional for the long-range dispersion interaction energy via an imaginary-frequency integral. We analyze several local polarizability approximations ...
  • Polyanskiy, Yury; Poor, H. Vincent; Verdu, Sergio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-03)
    Channel dispersion plays a fundamental role in assessing the backoff from capacity due to finite blocklength. This paper analyzes the channel dispersion for a simple channel with memory: the Gilbert-Elliott communication ...
  • Pakhotin, I. P.; Walker, S. N.; Balikhin, M. A.; Shprits, Yuri (Copernicus GmbH, 2013-08)
    Multi-point wave observations on Cluster spacecraft are used to infer the dispersion relation of electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves. In this study we use a phase differencing method and observations from STAFF and ...
  • Maes, Pattie; Pla i Conesa, Pol; Pattie Maes (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-02)
    This paper details the design and implementation of a new type of display technology. Display Blocks are a response to two major limitations of current displays: dimensional compression and physical-digital disconnect. ...
  • Pla i Conesa, Pol; Maes, Patricia (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012-05)
    We propose the design, implementation and evaluation of a set of tangible cubic displays. This novel approach to display technology consists of arranging six organic light emitting diode screens in a cubic form factor. We ...
  • Tappan, Jacqueline Marie; Pitman, David J.; Cummings, M. L.; Miglianico, Denis (Springer Science + Business Media B.V., 2011-07)
    This work, a collaboration between Alstom Transport and the MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory (HAL), is focused on the development of an interactive in-cab scheduling interface for train operators. Currently, operators ...
  • Benko, Hrvoje; Cassinelli, Alvaro; Ishii, Hiroshi; Leithinger, Daniel; Poupyrev, Ivan; Steimle, Jurgen; Maes, Patricia (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-05)
    This workshop provides a forum for discussing emerging trends in interactive surfaces that leverage alternative display types and form factors to enable more expressive interaction with information. The goal of the workshop ...
  • Chen, Yi; Tanaka, Shigehiko; Hunter, Ian (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-08)
    A disposable endoscopic platform with actuation motors inside the body of the endoscope is presented. This platform can enable new medical devices for diagnosis and for minimally invasive surgeries. This paper addresses ...
  • Mao, Yingwei; Ge, Xuecai; Frank, Christopher L.; Madison, Jon M.; Koehler, Angela N.; Doud, Mary Kathryn; Tassa, Carlos; Berry, Erin M.; Soda, Takahiro; Singh, Karun K.; Biechele, Travis; Petryshen, Tracey L.; Moon, Randall T.; Haggarty, Stephen J.; Tsai, Li-Huei (Elsevier, 2009-03)
    The Disrupted in Schizophrenia 1 (DISC1) gene is disrupted by a balanced chromosomal translocation (1; 11) (q42; q14.3) in a Scottish family with a high incidence of major depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. ...
  • Kellis, Manolis; Lin, Michael (Elsevier, 2012-12)
    Large intergenic noncoding (linc) RNAs represent a newly described class of ribonucleic acid whose importance in human disease remains undefined. We identified a severely developmentally delayed 16-year-old female with ...
  • Ego-Stengel, Valérie; Wilson, Matthew A. (Wiley Blackwell (John Wiley & Sons), 2009-10)
    The hippocampus plays a key role in the acquisition of new memories for places and events. Evidence suggests that the consolidation of these memories is enhanced during sleep. At the neuronal level, reactivation of awake ...

(eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd., 2014-11)
    Understanding the neural basis of consciousness is fundamental to neuroscience research. Disruptions in cortico-cortical connectivity have been suggested as a primary mechanism of unconsciousness. By using a novel combination ...
