  • Truong, Quoc T.; Sieber, Michael; Kleingartner, Justin Alan; Srinivasan, Siddarth; Cohen, Robert E; McKinley, Gareth H (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2015-12)
    Commercially available woven fabrics (e.g., nylon- or PET-based fabrics) possess inherently re-entrant textures in the form of cylindrical yarns and fibers. We analyze the liquid repellency of woven and nanotextured ...
  • Marbleston, Adam Henry; Boyden, Edward Stuart; Marblestone, Adam Henry (Elsevier, 2014-09)
    Can we develop technologies to systematically map classical mechanisms throughout the brain, while retaining the flexibility to investigate new mechanisms as they are discovered? We discuss principles of scalable, flexible ...
  • Zhao, Xuanhe (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2017-07)
    Soft materials, such as hydrogels, elastomers, and plastics, are pervasive in nature and society. For example, except for teeth, nails, and bones, all other components of the human body are hydrogels, and we eat, wear, and ...
  • Brizzolara, Stefano; Grassi, Davide; Tincani, Emilio P. (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2012)
    The main theoretical and numerical aspects of a design method for optimum contrar-rotating (CR) propellers for fast marine crafts are presented. We propose a reformulated version of a well-known design theory for contra-rotating ...
  • Burkhart, Justin M.; Korsunsky, Roman; Perreault, David J. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-04)
    This paper introduces a design methodology for a resonant boost converter topology that is suitable for operation at very high frequencies. The topology we examine features a low parts count and fast transient response, ...
  • Burkhart, Justin M.; Korsunsky, Roman; Perreault, David J. (IEEE Industry Applications Society, 2010-06)
    This document introduces a design methodology for a resonant boost converter topology that is suitable for operation at very high frequencies. The topology we examine features a low parts count and fast transient response ...
  • Codd, Daniel S.; Zhou, Lei; Grange, Benjamin; Calvet, Nicolas; Armstrong, Peter; Gil Pujol, Antoni; Trumper, David L; Campbell, Ronald B; Slocum, Alexander H (ASME International, 2015-06)
    A new concept of Thermal Energy Storage (TES) system based on current available technologies is being developed under the framework of the Masdar Institute (MI) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) collaborative ...
  • Parkesh, Raman; Childs-Disney, Jessica L.; Nakamori, Masayuki; Kumar, Amit; Wang, Eric; Wang, Thomas; Hoskins, Jason; Tran, Tuan; Thornton, Charles A.; Disney, Matthew D.; Housman, David E. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-02)
    Myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) is a triplet repeating disorder caused by expanded CTG repeats in the 3′-untranslated region of the dystrophia myotonica protein kinase (DMPK) gene. The transcribed repeats fold into an RNA ...
  • Dorsch, Daniel S.; Winter, Amos G. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2015-08)
    The Atlantic razor clam (Ensis directus) digs by contracting its valves, fluidizing the surrounding soil and reducing burrowing drag. Moving through a fluidized, rather than static, soil requires energy that scales linearly ...
  • Slocum, Alexander H.; Bosworth, William R., Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Mazumdar, Anirban; Saez, Miguel A.; Culpepper, Martin Luther; Levine, Robert A. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2009-06)
    This paper focuses on the design and implementation of a percutaneous catheter-based device to provide physicians with an externally controlled tool capable of manipulating and cutting specific chordae tendinae within the ...
  • Saha, Sourabh Kumar; Culpepper, Martin (American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2015-09)
    Wrinkling of thin films is a strain-driven process that enables scalable and low-cost fabrication of periodic micro- and nano-scale patterns. In the past, single-period sinusoidal wrinkles have been applied for thin-film ...
  • Raynal, Ashley B.; Hunter, Ian; Hogan, Nora Catherine (ASME International, 2016-08)
    Chronic wound care is a significant burden on the healthcare system, affecting an estimated three to six million Americans, manifesting as ulcers associated with restricted blood flow, diabetes mellitus, or pressure. ...
  • Banzaert, Amy; Winter, Amos G. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2013-08)
    Charcoal made from agricultural waste (AWC), intended for use in developing countries, has the potential to be a cooking fuel with health, economic, and environmental benefits. Investigations were undertaken to integrate ...
  • Ramanujam, Rohit Sunkam; Soteriou, Vassos; Lin, Bill; Peh, Li-Shiuan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-07)
    Router microarchitecture plays a central role in the performance of an on-chip network (NoC). Buffers are needed in routers to house incoming flits which cannot be immediately forwarded due to contention. This buffering ...
  • Castonia, Ryan; Boussemart, Yves; Cummings, M. L. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2010-04)
    This paper presents the findings from the design, development, and evaluation of a hidden semi-Markov model based operator state monitoring display. This operator state monitoring display is designed to function as a ...
  • Tao, Gregory D; Cho, Hallie Sue; Frey, Daniel; Winter, Amos G. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2012-08)
    Incidence of surgical site infection is 2–5 times higher in developing nations as compared to developed nations. A low-cost, easy to use autoclave was designed to address the unique technical, behavioral, and market ...

  • Bassett, Erik K.; Slocum, Alexander H.; Masiakos, Peter T.; Pryor, Howard I., II; Farokhzad, Omid C.; Karp, Jeffrey Michael (National Academy of Sciences, 2009-03)
    Insertion of trocars, needles, and catheters into unintended tissues or tissue compartments results in hundreds of thousands of complications annually. Current methods for blood vessel cannulation or epidural, chest tube, ...
  • Burgess, Ian B.; Zhang, Yinan; McCutcheon, Murray W.; Rodriguez, Alejandro W.; Bravo-Abad, Jorge; Johnson, Steven G.; Loncar, Marko (Optical Society of America, 2009-10)
    We propose a scheme for efficient cavity-enhanced nonlinear THz generation via difference-frequency generation (DFG) processes using a triply resonant system based on photonic crystal cavities. We show that high nonlinear ...
  • Chatzigeorgiou, Dimitrios; Youcef-Toumi, Kamal; Ben-Mansour, Rached (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-03)
    Leakage is the major factor for unaccounted losses in every pipe network around the world (oil, gas, or water). In most cases, the deleterious effects associated with the occurrence of leaks may present serious economical ...
