  • Eisen, Herman N.; Chakraborty, Arup K. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-01)
    The Abs made by B lymphocytes on first encountering an antigen bind it with low intrinsic affinity, and, over time, the average affinity of the Abs made against that antigen gradually increases. These changes, known as ...
  • Hoffmann, Matthias C.; Hebling, Janos; Hwang, Harold Young; Yeh, Ka-Lo; Nelson, Keith Adam (American Physical Society, 2009-04)
    Picosecond carrier dynamics in indium antimonide (InSb) following excitation by below band gap broadband far-infrared radiation was investigated at 200 and 80 K. Using a THz-pump/THz-probe scheme with pump THz fields of ...

  • Azoulay, Pierre; Ding, Waverly; Stuart, Toby (Blackwell Publishing, 2009-12)
    We examine the influence of faculty patenting on the rate, quality, and content of public research outputs in a panel dataset of 3,862 academic life scientists. Using inverse probability of treatment weights (IPTW) ...
  • Clewlow, Regina Ruby Lee; Simaiakis, Ioannis; Balakrishnan, Hamsa (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2010-08)
    Aircraft taxi operations are a major source of fuel burn and emissions on the ground. Given rising fuel prices and growing concerns about the contributions of aviation to air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, recent ...
  • Chua, S S Y; Sigg, D; Schofield, R M S; Frolov, V V; Kawabe, K; Meadors, G D; Factourovich, M; Gustafson, R; Vorvick, C; Landry, M; Khalaidovski, A; Stefszky, M S; Mow-Lowry, C M; Buchler, B C; Shaddock, D A; Lam, P K; Schnabel, R; McClelland, D E; Dwyer, S.; Barsotti, Lisa; Evans, M.; Smith-Lefebvre, N.; Mavalvala, Nergis (IOP Publishing, 2014-01)
    Squeezed states of light have been recently used to improve the sensitivity of laser-interferometric gravitational-wave detectors beyond the quantum limit. To completely establish quantum engineering as a realistic option ...
  • Berg, A. R.; Heald, Colette L.; Huff Hartz, K. E.; Hallar, A. G.; Meddens, A. J. H.; Hicke, J. A.; Lamarque, J.-F.; Tilmes, S. (Copernicus on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2013-03)
    Over the last decade, extensive beetle outbreaks in western North America have destroyed over 100 000 km2 of forest throughout British Columbia and the western United States. Beetle infestations impact monoterpene emissions ...
  • Butler, David L.; Goldstein, Steven A.; Guldberg, Robert E.; Guo, X. Edward; Kamm, Roger Dale; Laurencin, Cato T.; McIntire, Larry V.; Mow, Van C.; Nerem, Robert M.; Sah, Robert L.; Soslowsky, Louis J.; Spilker, Robert L.; Tranquillo, Robert T. (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2009-12)
    Biomechanical factors profoundly influence the processes of tissue growth, development, maintenance, degeneration, and repair. Regenerative strategies to restore damaged or diseased tissues in vivo and create living tissue ...
  • Felkner, John; Tazhibayeva, Kamilya; Townsend, Robert (American Economic Association, 2009-05)
    Our goal is to evaluate crop yield impacts from likely climate changes for Southeast Asia. To do so we link soil science crop modeling, weather simulators, and global climate change modeling into an integrated economic ...
  • Jia, Panle; Pathak, Parag (American Economic Association, 2010-05)
    Buying or selling a residential property is one of the most important financial decisions for a large majority of households in the United States. In 2007, 68 percent of households owned their own home, more than a ...
  • Townsend, Robert; Kaboski, Joseph P. (American Economic Association, 2012-04)
    This paper evaluates the short- and longer term impact of Thailand's "Million Baht Village Fund" program, among the largest scale government microfinance iniatives in the world, using pre- and post-program panel data and ...
  • Bertoni, Mariana I.; Hudelson, S.; Newman, B. K.; Bernardis, S.; Fenning, David P.; Dekkers, H. F. W.; Cornagliotti, E.; Zuschlag, A.; Micard, G.; Hahn, G.; Coletti, G.; Lai, B.; Buonassisi, Tonio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-06)
    In this work we examine the effectiveness of hydrogen passivation at grain boundaries as a function of defect type and microstructure in multicrystalline silicon. We analyze a specially prepared solar cell with alternating ...
  • Korolev, Kirill Sergeevich; Sunyaev, Shamil R.; Mirny, Leonid A.; Christopher D., McFarland; Gregory V., Kryukov (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-02)
    Cancer progression is driven by the accumulation of a small number of genetic alterations. However, these few driver alterations reside in a cancer genome alongside tens of thousands of additional mutations termed passengers. ...
  • Cohen, Jason Blake; Prinn, Ronald G.; Wang, Chien (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2011-05)
    Detailed urban-scale processing has not been included in global 3D chemical transport models due to its large computational demands. Here we present a metamodel for including this processing, and compare it with the use ...
  • Nepf, Heidi; Andradottir, Hrund O. (American Geophysical Union, 2001-12)
    The flushing of littoral regions is governed by barotropic river flows, QR, and baroclinic exchange flows, ΔQ. This note presents field observations of two different flushing regimes in a shallow wetland that borders a ...
