  • Grzesik, Michael J.; Bailey, Robert J.; Mahan, Joseph M; Ampe, James M. (Springer US, 2015-09)
    Current-limiting fuses composed of Ti/Al/Ni were developed for use in Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode arrays for each individual pixel in the array. The fuses were designed to burn out at ∼4.5 × 10[superscript −3] A and ...
  • Kleiman, Steven L. (American Society for Microbiology, 2008-06)
    This historical introduction is in two parts. The first is reprinted with permission from "A century of mathematics in America, Part II," Hist. Math., 2, Amer. Math. Soc., 1989, pp.543-585. Virtually no change has been ...
  • Huo, Yueying; Zhang, Jian; Qiu, Feng; Zhao, Jinhua (University of South Florida, 2015)
    Bus rapid transit (BRT) has gained popularity as a cost-effective way of expanding public transit services, and its level of service (LOS) is receiving increasing attention. However, relatively little is known about the ...

    SiGe based Focal Plane Arrays offer a low cost alternative for developing visible- NIR focal plane arrays that will cover the spectral band from 0.4 to 1.6 microns. The attractive features of SiGe based IRFPA's will take ...
  • Bower, Diana Morgan; Prather, Kristala L. Jones (BioMed Central Ltd, 2012-08)
    Background: There has been renewed interest in biopharmaceuticals based on plasmid DNA (pDNA) in recent years due to the approval of several veterinary DNA vaccines, on-going clinical trials of human pDNA-based therapies, ...
  • Iqbal, Md. Shahadat; Choudhury, Charisma F; Wang, Pu; Gonzalez, Marta C. (Elsevier, 2014-02)
    In this research, we propose a methodology to develop OD matrices using mobile phone Call Detail Records (CDR) and limited traffic counts. CDR, which consist of time stamped tower locations with caller IDs, are analyzed ...
  • Kalia, Amy Ashwin; Lesmes, Luis Andres; Dorr, Michael; Gandhi, Tapan Kumar; Chatterjee, Garga; Ganesh, Suma; Bex, Peter J.; Sinha, Pawan (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2014-01)
    Visual plasticity peaks during early critical periods of normal visual development. Studies in animals and humans provide converging evidence that gains in visual function are minimal and deficits are most severe when ...
  • Dragoi, George; Tonegawa, Susumu (eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd., 2013-12)
    Prior experience accelerates acquisition of novel, related information through processes like assimilation into mental schemas, but the underlying neuronal mechanisms are poorly understood. We investigated the roles that ...
  • Stubbs, Keith A.; Bacik, John-Paul; Perley-Robertson, G. Evan; Whitworth, Garrett E.; Gloster, Tracey M.; Vocadlo, David J.; Mark, Brian L. (Wiley Blackwell, 2013-09)
    The increasing incidence of inducible chromosomal AmpC β-lactamases within the clinic is a growing concern because these enzymes deactivate a broad range of even the most recently developed β-lactam antibiotics. As a result, ...
  • Sood, Ashok K.; Richwine, Robert A.; Puri, Yash R.; DiLello, Nicole Ann; Hoyt, Judy L.; Dhar, Nibir; Balcerak, Raymond S.; Bramhall, Thomas G. (SPIE, 2010-08)
    SiGe based focal plane arrays offer a low cost alternative for developing visible- near-infrared focal plane arrays that will cover the spectral band from 0.4 to 1.6 microns. The attractive features of SiGe based foal plane ...
  • Alabi, Christopher A.; Sahay, Gaurav; Langer, Robert; Anderson, Daniel Griffith (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012-08)
    One important barrier facing the delivery of short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) via synthetic nanoparticles is the rate of nanoparticle disassembly. However, our ability to optimize the release kinetics of siRNAs from ...
  • Thomason, Moriah E.; Race, Elizabeth; Burrows, Brittany; Glover, Gary H.; Gabrieli, John D. E.; Gabrieli, Susan (MIT Press Journals, 2010-05)
    A core aspect of working memory (WM) is the capacity to maintain goal-relevant information in mind, but little is known about how this capacity develops in the human brain. We compared brain activation, via fMRI, between ...
  • Coppi, Bruno; Roveta, G.; Fehling, D.; Meitner, S.; Foust, C. R.; Combs, S. K.; Baylor, L. R.; Ronci, G.; Capobianchi, M.; Migliori, S.; Bombarda, F.; Frattolillo, A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    ENEA and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) are collaborating on the development of a four barrel, two-stage pneumatic injector for the Ignitor experiment, featuring two innovative concepts: (i) the proper shaping of the ...
  • Gongora-Castillo, Elsa; Childs, Kevin L.; Fedewa, Greg; Hamilton, John P.; Liscombe, David K.; Magallanes-Lundback, Maria; Mandadi, Kranthi K.; Nims, Ezekiel; Runguphan, Weerawat; Vaillancourt, Brieanne; Varbanova-Herde, Marina; DellaPenna, Dean; McKnight, Thomas D.; O'Connor, Sarah Ellen; Buell, C. Robin (Public Library of Science, 2012-12)
    The natural diversity of plant metabolism has long been a source for human medicines. One group of plant-derived compounds, the monoterpene indole alkaloids (MIAs), includes well-documented therapeutic agents used in the ...
  • Feng, Guoping; Ting, Jonathan Thomas (Elsevier, 2013-03)
    Here we review the rapidly growing toolbox of transgenic mice and rats that exhibit functional expression of engineered opsins for neuronal activation and silencing with light. Collectively, these transgenic animals are ...
  • Hu, Qing; Kumar, Sushil; Qin, Qi; Williams, Benjamin S.; Reno, John L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-07)
    We report a novel tuning mechanism based on a “wire-laser” with subwavelength transverse dimensions(w≪λ). By manipulating the waveguided mode propagating outside the cavity, frequency tuning of ∼137GHz (3.6%) is demonstrated ...
