  • Fu, Haitao; Yeo, Kiat-Seng; Do, Anh-Tuan; Kong, Zhi-Hui (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-02)
    The SRAM which functions as the cache for system-on-chip is vital in the electronic industry. The heavy bit-and data-line capacitances are the major road blocks to its performance. A high-performance SRAM is proposed using ...
  • Bruno, Nicholas C.; Tudge, Matthew T.; Buchwald, Stephen Leffler (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012-08)
    A series of easily prepared, phosphine-ligated palladium precatalysts based on the 2-aminobiphenyl scaffold have been prepared. The role of the precatalyst-associated labile halide (or pseudohalide) in the formation and ...
  • Simaiakis, Ioannis; Balakrishnan, Hamsa (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-06)
    This paper proposes a stochastic model of runway departures and a dynamic programming algorithm for their control at congested airports. Using a multi-variable state description that includes the capacity forecast, the ...
  • Li, Yang; Cao, Rui; Lippard, Stephen J. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2011-08)
    A novel triptycene-based ligand with a preorganized framework was designed to model carboxylate-bridged diiron active sites in bacterial multicomponent monooxygenase (BMM) hydroxylase enzymes. The synthesis of the ...
  • Richards, William Davidson; Tsujimura, Tomoyuki; Miara, Lincoln J.; Wang, Yan; Kim, Jae Chul; Ong, Shyue Ping; Uechi, Ichiro; Suzuki, Naoki; Ceder, Gerbrand (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-03)
    Sodium-ion batteries are emerging as candidates for large-scale energy storage due to their low cost and the wide variety of cathode materials available. As battery size and adoption in critical applications increases, ...
  • Rouse, Elliott J.; Villagaray-Carski, Nathan C.; Emerson, Robert W.; Herr, Hugh M. (Public Library of Science, 2015-08)
    Traditionally, prosthetic leg research has focused on improving mobility for activities of daily living. Artistic expression such as dance, however, is not a common research topic and consequently prosthetic technology for ...
  • Tax, David Samuel; Mastovsky, Ivan; Neilson, Jeff; Shapiro, Michael; Sirigiri, Jagadishwar R.; Temkin, Richard J.; Torrezan de Sousa, Antonio Carlos (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-11)
    We report experimental results on a 1.5 MW, 110 GHz, 3 microsecond pulsed gyrotron with a single-stage depressed collector. A simplified mode converter with smooth mirror surfaces has been installed in the tube. The converter ...
  • Murphy, Jeremy; Yang, Maria; Otto, Kevin; Jensen, Dan; Wood, Kristin; Fu, Katherine K (Springer London, 2014-11)
    Design-by-analogy is a growing field of study and practice, due to its power to augment and extend traditional concept generation methods by expanding the set of generated ideas using similarity relationships from solutions ...
  • Choi, Hak Soo; Liu, Wenhao; Liu, Fangbing; Nasr, Khaled; Misra, Preeti; Bawendi, Moungi G.; Frangioni, John V. (Nature Publishing Group, 2009-11)
    Inorganic/organic hybrid nanoparticles are potentially useful in biomedicine, but to avoid non-specific background fluorescence and long-term toxicity, they need to be cleared from the body within a reasonable timescale1. ...
  • Davis, Joseph Harry; Rubin, Adam J.; Sauer, Robert T. (Oxford University Press, 2010-09)
    We have generated a series of variable-strength, constitutive, bacterial promoters that act predictably in different sequence contexts, span two orders of magnitude in strength and contain convenient sites for cloning and ...
  • Drela, Mark (SAE International, 2011-10)
    The fuel energy consumption of subsonic air transportation is examined. The focus is on identification and quantification of fundamental engineering design tradeoffs which drive the design of subsonic tube and wing transport ...
  • Zhou, Qinghan; Lin, Juan; Wang, Jing; Li, Feng; Tang, Fushan; Zhao, Xiaojun (Elsevier B.V., 2009-11)
    The amphiphilic peptide is becoming attractive as a potential drug carrier to improve the dissolvability of hydrophobic drugs in an aqueous system; thus, facilitating drug uptake by target cells. Here, we report a novel ...
  • Ruan, Liping; Zhang, Hangyu; Luo, Hanlin; Liu, Jingping; Tang, Fushan; Shi, Ying-Kang; Zhao, Xiaojun (National Academy of Sciences, 2009-03)
    How do you design a peptide building block to make 2-dimentional nanowebs and 3-dimensional fibrous mats? This question has not been addressed with peptide self-assembling nanomaterials. This article describes a designed ...
  • Li, Xiansen; Michaelis, Vladimir K.; Ong, Ta-Chung; Smith, Stacey J.; Griffin, Robert Guy; Wang, Evelyn N. (John Wiley & Sons, Inc, 2014-05)
    The controllable synthesis of well-ordered layered materials with specific nanoarchitecture poses a grand challenge in materials chemistry. Here the solvothermal synthesis of two structurally analogous 5-coordinate ...
  • Baaske, Philipp; Wienken, Christoph J.; Jerabek-Willemsen, Moran; Duhr, Stefan; Luo, Yuan; Braun, Dieter; Corin, Karolina A.; Ravel, Deepali B.; Song, Junyao; Brown, Emily E.; Wang, Xiaoqiang; Zhang, Shuguang (Public Library of Science, 2011-11)
    A crucial bottleneck in membrane protein studies, particularly G-protein coupled receptors, is the notorious difficulty of finding an optimal detergent that can solubilize them and maintain their stability and function. ...
  • Tolley, Michael T.; Rus, Daniela L. (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-05)
    Conventionally, engineers have employed rigid materials to fabricate precise, predictable robotic systems, which are easily modelled as rigid members connected at discrete joints. Natural systems, however, often match or ...
  • Dave, Nirav H.; Ng, Man Cheuk; Pellauer, Michael; Mithal, Arvind (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-07)
    We propose a practical methodology based on modular refinement to design complex systems. The methodology relies on modules with latency-insensitive interfaces so that the refinements can change the timing contract of a ...
  • Kimerling, Lionel C.; Sun, Xiaochen; Hu, Juejun; Agarwal, Anuradha Murthy (Optical Society of America, 2009-04)
    In this paper, we propose a design tool for dielectric optical resonator-based biochemical refractometry sensors. Analogous to the widely accepted photodetector figure of merit, the detectivity D*, we introduce a new sensor ...
