• (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2009-11)
We demonstrate an electromechanical switch comprising two polycrystalline graphene films; each deposited using ambient pressure chemical vapor deposition. The top film is pulled into electrical contact with the bottom film ...
• (Wiley Blackwell, 2014-11)
It is an ongoing pursuit to use metal as a channel material in a field effect transistor. All metallic transistor can be fabricated from pristine semimetallic Dirac materials (such as graphene, silicene, and germanene), ...
• (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2010-10)
We present experimental results from an all-optical diagnostic method to directly measure the evolution of the hot-electron distribution driving the acceleration of ions from thin foils using high-intensity lasers. Central ...
• (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2013-07)
The realization of an all-optical transistor, in which one “gate” photon controls a “source” light beam, is a long-standing goal in optics. By stopping a light pulse in an atomic ensemble contained inside an optical ...
• (Institute of Physics, 2015-01)
We propose an all-optical, three-dimensional electron pulse compression scheme in which Hermite–Gaussian optical modes are used to fashion a three-dimensional optical trap in the electron pulse's rest frame. We show that ...
• (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2015-09)
Calcium-dependent protein kinases (CDPKs) comprise the major group of Ca[superscript 2+]-regulated kinases in plants and protists. It has long been assumed that CDPKs are activated, like other Ca[superscript 2+]-regulated ...
• (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-12)
The PDZ domains of the trimeric DegS protease bind unassembled outer-membrane proteins (OMPs) that accumulate in the Escherichia coli periplasm. This cooperative binding reaction triggers a proteolytic cascade that activates ...
• (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-12)
Submodularity is a powerful property that can be exploited for provable performance and convergence guarantees in distributed task allocation algorithms. However, some mission scenarios cannot easily be approximated as ...
• (Institute of Physics/American Astronomical Society, 2013-06)
The Kepler-11 planetary system contains six transiting planets ranging in size from 1.8 to 4.2 times the radius of Earth. Five of these planets orbit in a tightly packed configuration with periods between 10 and 47 days. ...
• (American Physical Society, 2009-03)
We report on an all-sky search with the LIGO detectors for periodic gravitational waves in the frequency range 50–1100 Hz and with the frequency’s time derivative in the range -5×10[superscript -9]–0  Hz s[superscript -1]. ...
• (American Physical Society, 2010-05)
We present results from an all-sky search for unmodeled gravitational-wave bursts in the data collected by the LIGO, GEO 600 and Virgo detectors between November 2006 and October 2007. The search is performed by three ...
• (American Physical Society, 2012-06)
We present results from a search for gravitational-wave bursts in the data collected by the LIGO and Virgo detectors between July 7, 2009 and October 20, 2010: data are analyzed when at least two of the three LIGO-Virgo ...
• (American Physical Society, 2016-02)
We present the results of a search for long-duration gravitational wave transients in two sets of data collected by the LIGO Hanford and LIGO Livingston detectors between November 5, 2005 and September 30, 2007, and July ...
• (American Physical Society, 2012-01)
We report on an all-sky search for periodic gravitational waves in the frequency band 50–800 Hz and with the frequency time derivative in the range of 0 through -6×10[superscript -9]  Hz/s. Such a signal could be produced ...
• (Elsevier, 2009-05)
Book review of: D. Graham Burnett, Trying Leviathan: The Nineteenth-Century Court Case That Put the Whale on Trial and Challenged the Order of Nature, Princeton University Press (2007) ISBN 978-0691129501 xvi + 266 pp., $32.95. • (Springer US, 2015-03) The conversion of propanal to hydrocarbons is investigated over mesoporous aluminosilicate MFI nanosheets (Al-MFI-ns) of single-unit-cell thickness and conventional aluminum MFI zeolite (Al-MFI) at 673 K and atmospheric ... • (Springer-Verlag, 2010-08) It has been known since 1970’s that the N-dimensional ℓ[subscript 1]-space contains almost Euclidean subspaces whose dimension is Ω(N). However, proofs of existence of such subspaces were probabilistic, hence non-constructive, ... • (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2014) In this paper, we introduce a new framework for approximately solving flow problems in capacitated, undirected graphs and apply it to provide asymptotically faster algorithms for the maximum s-t flow and maximum concurrent ... • (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2013-01) In this paper we show that after suitable data randomization there exists a large set of supercritical periodic initial data, in$H^{-\alpha}(\boldsymbol{T}^d)$for some$\alpha(d) > 0\$, for both two- and three-dimensional ...
• (Electrochemical Society, 2015-04)
Homogeneous bonding was successfully demonstrated on 150 mm Si wafers by face-to-face direct dielectric bonding of clean and smooth aluminum nitride (AlN) layers. Characterization result from XPS confirms the layer composition ...
