  • 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 ...

(Nature Publishing Group, 2014-04)
    Cancer cells possess aberrant proteomes that can arise by the disruption of genes involved in physiological protein degradation. Here we demonstrate the presence of promoter CpG island hypermethylation-linked inactivation ...
  • 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, ...
  • Guo, Fei; Servi, Amelia T; Liu, Andong; Gleason, Karen K; Rutledge, Gregory C (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2015-04)
    Fibrous membranes of poly(trimethyl hexamethylene terephthalamide) (PA6(3)T) were fabricated by electrospinning and rendered hydrophobic by applying a conformal coating of poly(1H,1H,2H,2H-perfluorodecyl acrylate) (PPFDA) ...
  • Lee, Jongho; Karnik, Rohit (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 ...
  • Etingof, Pavel I.; Gelaki, Shlomo (Oxford University Press, 2011-07)
    We develop a theory of descent and forms of tensor categories over arbitrary fields. We describe the general scheme of classification of such forms using algebraic and homotopical language, and give examples of explicit ...
  • Dimitriou, Christopher J.; Ewoldt, Randy H.; McKinley, Gareth H. (Society of Rheology, 2012-10)
    Large amplitude oscillatory shear (LAOS) is used as a tool to probe the nonlinear rheological response of a model elasto-viscoplastic material (a Carbopol microgel). In contrast to most recent studies, these large amplitude ...
  • Chen, Ru; Flierl, Glenn Richard; Wunsch, Carl (American Meteorological Society, 2014-09)
    The assumption that local baroclinic instability dominates eddy–mean flow interactions is tested on a global scale using a dynamically consistent eddy-permitting state estimate. Interactions are divided into local and ...
  • Silbey, Robert (Elsevier, 2011-09)
    Recent experiments on light harvesting complexes have shown clear indication of coherent transport of excitations in these aggregates. We review the theoretical models that have been used to study energy transfer in molecular ...
  • Goosse, H.; Brovkin, V.; Fichefet, T.; Haarsma, R.; Huybrechts, P.; Jongma, J.; Mouchet, A.; Selton, F.; Barriat, P.-Y.; Campin, Jean-Michel; Deleersnijder, E.; Driesschaert, E.; Goelzer, H.; Janssens, I.; Loutre, M.-F.; Morales Maqueda, M. A.; Opsteegh, T.; Mathieu, P.-P.; Munhoven, G.; Pettersson, E. J.; Renssen, H.; Roche, D. M.; Schaeffer, M.; Tartinville, B.; Timmermann, A.; Weber, S. L. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2010-11)
    The main characteristics of the new version 1.2 of the three-dimensional Earth system model of intermediate complexity LOVECLIM are briefly described. LOVECLIM 1.2 includes representations of the atmosphere, the ocean and ...
  • Hong, Wesley Terrence; Welsch, Roy E; Shao-Horn, Yang (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2015-12)
    Catalysts for oxygen electrochemical processes are critical for the commercial viability of renewable energy storage and conversion devices such as fuel cells, artificial photosynthesis, and metal-air batteries. Transition ...
  • Lobovsky, Maxim B.; Keating, Steven John; Setapen, Adam M.; Gero, Katy I.; Hosoi, Anette E.; Iagnemma, Karl; Cheng, Nadia Gen San (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-05)
    Hyper-redundant manipulators can be fragile, expensive, and limited in their flexibility due to the distributed and bulky actuators that are typically used to achieve the precision and degrees of freedom (DOFs) required. ...
  • Chen, Hao; Hansen, Malik; Playter, Robert; Cheng, Nadia Gen San; Ishigami, Genya; Hawthorne, Stephan A.; Telleria, Maria J.; Iagnemma, Karl (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-05)
    Soft robotic systems have applications in industrial, medical, and security applications. Many applications require these robots to be small and lightweight. One challenge in developing a soft robotic system is to drive ...
  • McCarthy, Matthew; Peters, Teresa Baker; Allison, Jon; Dominguez Espinosa, Alonso; Jenicek, David P.; Kariya, Harumichi Arthur; Koveal, Catherine; Brisson, John G., II; Lang, Jeffrey H.; Wang, Evelyn N. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-07)
    We report the design and analysis of a high-power air-cooled heat exchanger capable of dissipating over 1000 W with 33 W of input electrical power and an overall thermal resistance of less than 0.05 K/W. The novelty of the ...
  • Weichenberg, Guy Elli; Chan, Vincent W. S.; Medard, Muriel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009-07)
