  • Smith, Jonathan David; Dhiman, Rajeev; Anand, Sushant; Reza-Garduno, Ernesto; Cohen, Robert E.; McKinley, Gareth H.; Varanasi, Kripa K (Royal Society of Chemistry, The, 2012-12)
    Non-wetting surfaces containing micro/nanotextures impregnated with lubricating liquids have recently been shown to exhibit superior non-wetting performance compared to superhydrophobic surfaces that rely on stable air–liquid ...
  • Gilet, Tristan; Bush, John W. M. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2012-12)
    We present the results of an experimental investigation of fluid drops impacting an inclined rigid surface covered with a thin layer of high viscosity fluid. We deduce the conditions under which droplet bouncing, splitting, ...
  • Moon, Sangjun; Kim, Yun-Gon; Dong, Lingsheng; Lombardi, Michael; Haeggstrom, Edward; Jensen, Roderick V.; Hsiao, Li-Li; Demirci, Utkan (Public Library of Science, 2011-03)
    Technologies that rapidly isolate viable single cells from heterogeneous solutions have significantly contributed to the field of medical genomics. Challenges remain both to enable efficient extraction, isolation and ...
  • Renvoise, P.; Bush, John W. M.; Prakash, Manu; Quere, D. (European Physical Society by EDP Sciences, IOP Publishing and Società Italiana di Fisica, 2009-07)
    We present the results of a combined experimental and theoretical investigation of the motion of wetting droplets in tapered capillary tubes. We demonstrate that drops may move spontaneously towards the tapered end owing ...
  • Bush, John W. M.; Molacek, Jan (Cambridge University Press, 2013-06)
    We present the results of a combined experimental and theoretical investigation of millimetric droplets bouncing on a vertically vibrating fluid bath. We first characterize the system experimentally, deducing the dependence ...
  • Bush, John W. M.; Molacek, Jan (Cambridge University Press, 2013-06)
    We present the results of a combined experimental and theoretical investigation of droplets walking on a vertically vibrating fluid bath. Several walking states are reported, including pure resonant walkers that bounce ...
  • Rykaczewski, Konrad; Paxson, Adam T.; Staymates, Matthew; Walker, Marlon L.; Sun, Xiaoda; Anand, Sushant; Srinivasan, Siddarth; McKinley, Gareth H.; Chinn, Jeff; Scott, John Henry J.; Varanasi, Kripa K. (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-03)
    Compared to the significant body of work devoted to surface engineering for promoting dropwise condensation heat transfer of steam, much less attention has been dedicated to fluids with lower interfacial tension. A vast ...
  • Miljkovic, Nenad; Enright, Ryan; Alvarado, Jorge; Kwang, Kim; Rose, John (Taylor & Francis, 2014-03)
    In this review we cover recent developments in the area of surface- enhanced dropwise condensation against the background of earlier work. The development of fabrication techniques to create surface structures at the micro- ...
  • Unhavaithaya, Yingdee; Park, Eugenia A.; Royzman, Irena; Orr-Weaver, Terry L. (Genetics Society of America, 2013-08)
    Nearly all cell division mutants in Drosophila were recovered in late larval/pupal lethal screens, with less than 10 embryonic lethal mutants identified, because larval development occurs without a requirement for cell ...
  • Hongaya, Cintia F.; Orr-Weaver, Terry L. (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), 2011-08)
    N⁶-methyladenosine is a nonediting RNA modification found in mRNA of all eukaryotes, from yeast to humans. Although the functional significance of N⁶-methyladenosine is unknown, the Inducer of MEiosis 4 (IME4) gene of ...
  • Pardue, Mary-Lou; DeBaryshe, P. G. (Landes Bioscience, 2008-05)
    In Drosophila, the role of telomerase is carried out by three specialized retrotransposable elements, HeT-A, TART, and TAHRE. Telomeres contain long tandem head-to-tail arrays of these elements. Within each array, the ...
  • Zaroug, M. A. H.; Eltahir, Elfatih A. B.; Giorgi, F. (Copernicus GmbH on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2014-03)
    The Blue Nile originates from Lake Tana in the Ethiopian Highlands and contributes about 60–69% of the main Nile discharge. Previous studies investigated the relationship of sea surface temperature (SST) in the Pacific ...
  • Famm, Kristoffer; Litt, Brian; Tracey, Kevin J.; Boyden, Edward Stuart; Slaoui, Moncef (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-04)
    Imagine a day when electrical impulses are a mainstay of medical treatment. Your clinician will administer electroceuticals that target individual nerve fibres or specific brain circuits to treat an array of conditions. ...
  • Molavian, Hamid R.; Goldman, Aaron; Phipps, Colin J.; Kohandel, Mohammad; Wouters, Bradly G.; Sengupta, Shiladitya; Sivaloganathan, Sivabal (Springer Nature, 2016-06)
    Pharmacological concentrations of small molecule natural products, such as ascorbic acid, have exhibited distinct cell killing outcomes between cancer and normal cells whereby cancer cells undergo apoptosis or necrosis ...
  • Mendoza, Hiroshi A.; Ashall, Daniel T.; Yin, Allen S.; Baldo, Marc A.; Bahlke, Matthias Erhard (Wiley Blackwell, 2012-09)
    To address the incompatibility of organic semiconductors with traditional photolithography, an inert, frozen CO[subscript 2] resist is demonstrated that forms an in situ shadow mask. Contact with a room-temperature ...
  • Sun, Chen; Kurian, George; Wei, Lan; Agarwal, Anant; Peh, Li-Shiuan; Stojanovic, Vladimir; Chen, Chia-Hsin; Miller, Jason E. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-05)
    With the rise of many-core chips that require substantial bandwidth from the network on chip (NoC), integrated photonic links have been investigated as a promising alternative to traditional electrical interconnects. While ...
  • Freedman, Daniel Z.; Tonni, Erik (Springer-Verlag, 2011-04)
    The existence of a linearized SUSY invariant for N=8 supergravity whose gravitational components are usually called R[superscript 4] was established long ago by on-shell super-space arguments. Superspace and string theory ...
  • Ben-Akiva, Moshe E.; Gao, Song; Lu, Lu; Wen, Yang (Springer Science+Business Media, 2014-04)
    Dynamic Traffic Assignment (DTA) models are important decision support tools for transportation planning and real-time traffic management. One of the biggest obstacles of applying DTA in large-scale networks is the calibration ...
  • Golland, Polina; Yeo, Boon Thye Thomas; Vercauteren, Tom; Fillard, Pierre; Peyrat, Jean-Marc; Pennec, Xavier; Ayache, Nicholas; Clatz, Olivier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-11)
    In this paper, we propose the DT-REFinD algorithm for the diffeomorphic nonlinear registration of diffusion tensor images. Unlike scalar images, deforming tensor images requires choosing both a reorientation strategy and ...
  • Lagesse, Brent; Kumar, Mohan; Paluska, Justin Mazzola; Wright, Matthew (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-05)
    Effective security mechanisms are essential to the widespread deployment of pervasive systems. Much of the research focus on security in pervasive computing has revolved around distributed trust management. While such ...
