  • Zhao, Jian-Ping; Murata, Yasunobu; Constantine-Paton, Martha (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2012-12)
    The only major glutamate receptor membrane-associated guanylate kinase scaffolds expressed in the young superficial superior colliculus (SC) are synapse-associated protein 102 (SAP102) and postsynaptic density protein 95 ...
  • Nanayakkara, Suranga; Shilkrot, Roy; Yeo, Kian Peen; Maes, Patricia (Association for Computing Machinery, 2013-03)
    Finger-worn interfaces remain a vastly unexplored space for user interfaces, despite the fact that our fingers and hands are naturally used for referencing and interacting with the environment. In this paper we present ...
  • Nanayakkara, Suranga; Shilkrot, Roy; Maes, Patricia (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012-05)
    Finger-worn devices are a greatly underutilized form of interaction with the surrounding world. By putting a camera on a finger we show that many visual analysis applications, for visually impaired people as well as the ...
  • Schwager, Mac; Julian, Brian John; Angermann, Michael; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-07)
    This paper presents a decentralized control strategy for positioning and orienting multiple robotic cameras to collectively monitor an environment. The cameras may have various degrees of mobility from six degrees of ...
  • Granit, R. Z.; Gabai, Y.; Hadar, T.; Karamansha, Y.; Liberman, L.; Waldhorn, I.; Maly, B.; Darash-Yahana, M.; Peretz, T.; Ben-Porath, Ittai; Regev, Aviv; Gat-Viks, I. (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-09)
    The mechanisms regulating breast cancer differentiation state are poorly understood. Of particular interest are molecular regulators controlling the highly aggressive and poorly differentiated traits of basal-like breast ...
  • Mak, Hannah; Naba, Alexandra; Varma, Sonal; Schick, Colleen; Day, Andrew; SenGupta, Sandip K; Arpin, Monique; Elliott, Bruce E (BioMed Central Ltd., 2012-03)
    Background The membrane cytoskeletal crosslinker, ezrin, a member of the ERM family of proteins, is frequently over-expressed in human breast cancers, and is required for motility and invasion of epithelial cells. Our group ...
  • Zwaenepoel, Ingrid; Da, Marcel Menezes Lyra; Maestro, Laurence Del; Formstecher, Etienne; Louvard, Daniel; Arpin, Monique; Naba, Alexandra (American Society for Cell Biology, 2012-01)
    The mechanisms that regulate actin filament polymerization resulting in the morphogenesis of the brush border microvilli in epithelial cells remain unknown. Eps8, the prototype of a family of proteins capable of capping ...
  • Finkelstein, Amy (MIT Press, 2009-08)
    This paper examines whether the salience of a tax system affects equilibrium tax rates. I analyze how tolls change after toll facilities adopt electronic toll collection (ETC); drivers are substantially less aware of tolls ...
  • Levin, Anat; Glasner, Daniel; Xiong, Ying; Matusik, Wojciech; Zickler, Todd; Durand, Fredo; Freeman, William T. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-07)
    Recent attempts to fabricate surfaces with custom reflectance functions boast impressive angular resolution, yet their spatial resolution is limited. In this paper we present a method to construct spatially varying reflectance ...
  • Dextras, Philip; Payer, Kristofor Robert; Burg, Thomas P.; Shen, Wenjiang; Wang, Ying-Chih; Han, Jongyoon; Manalis, Scott R. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-02)
    We report on a fabrication and packaging process for a microsystem consisting of a mass-based protein detector and a fully integrated preconcentrator. Preconcentration of protein is achieved by means of a nanofluidic ...
  • Ross, Caroline A.; Kimerling, Lionel C.; Hu, Juejun; Bi, Lei (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2010-01)
    We report two novel strategies to integrate magneto-optical oxides on oxidized silicon and SOI platforms based on strip-loaded waveguide structures. By using conventional waveguide fabrication and thin film deposition ...
  • Wei, Lei; Sorin, Fabien; Lestoquoy, Guillaume; Joannopoulos, John D.; Fink, Yoel; Stolyarov, Alexander Mark (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2012-07)
    We report on an all-in-fiber liquid crystal (LC) structure designed for the modulation of light incident transverse to the fiber axis. A hollow cavity flanked by viscous conductors is introduced into a polymer matrix, and ...
  • Lestoquoy, Guillaume; Wang, Zheng; Joannopoulos, John D.; Fink, Yoel; Chocat, Noemie (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013-04)
    We report on the fabrication of all-in-fiber capacitors with poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) as the dielectric material. Electrodes made of conductive polymer are separated by a PVDF thin film within a polycarbonate casing ...
  • del Alamo, Jesus A.; Wu, Joyce H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    We developed a through-substrate copper-damascene interconnect technology in silicon with minimal impedance. Via impedance was extracted using parameter measurements at 50 GHz that were matched to simple circuit models. ...
  • Daniilidis, N.; Narayanan, S.; Moller, S. A.; Clark, R.; Lee, T. E.; Leek, P. J.; Wallraff, A.; Schulz, Stephan Alf; Schmidt-Kaler, F.; Haffner, H. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2011-01)
    We report heating rate measurements in a microfabricated gold-on-sapphire surface electrode ion trap with a trapping height of approximately 240 μm. Using the Doppler recooling method, we characterize the trap heating rates ...
  • Schattenburg, Mark Lee; Ahn, Minseung; Heilmann, Ralf K. (The International Society for Optical Engineering, 2008-07)
