  • Qin, Zhao; Kreplak, Laurent; Buehler, Markus J. (Public Library of Science, 2009-10)
    Intermediate filaments (IFs), in addition to microtubules and microfilaments, are one of the three major components of the cytoskeleton in eukaryotic cells, playing a vital role in mechanotransduction and in providing ...
  • Varanasi, Kripa K.; Deng, Tao; Hsu, Ming; Bhate, Nitin (Nano Science and Technology Institute, 2009-05)
    In this paper, we present static and dynamic wetting interactions of water droplets on a variety of superhydrophobic surfaces. For sessile droplets, wetting states were determined by measuring contact angles and comparing ...
  • Baran, Ilya; Chen, Jiawen; Ragan-Kelley, Jonathan Millar; Durand, Fredo; Lehtinen, Jaakko (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2010-12)
    Volumetric effects such as beams of light through participating media are an important component in the appearance of the natural world. Many such effects can be faithfully modeled by a single scattering medium. In the ...
  • Linnebo, Oystein (Oxford University Press, )
    Godel claimed that Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory is `what becomes of the theory of types if certain superfluous restrictions are removed'. The aim of this paper is to develop a clearer understanding of Godel's remark, and ...
  • Mohayaee, Roya; Afshordi, Niayesh; Bertschinger, Edmund (American Physical Society, 2010-05)
    We develop a theoretical framework for describing the hierarchical structure of the phase space of cold dark matter haloes, due to gravitationally bound substructures. Because it includes the full hierarchy of the cold ...
  • Bertsimas, Dimitris J.; Iancu, Dan Andrei; Parrilo, Pablo A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-08)
    In this paper, we propose a new tractable framework for dealing with linear dynamical systems affected by uncertainty, applicable to multistage robust optimization and stochastic programming. We introduce a hierarchy of ...
  • Rinard, Martin C.; Grigoras, Gheorghe; Andrei, Stefan; Yap, Roland Hock Chuan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    Finding subclasses of formulae for which the SAT problem can be solved in polynomial time has been an important problem in computer science. We present a new hierarchy of propositional formulae subclasses for which the SAT ...
  • Jacks, Tyler E.; Mazumdar, Jolly; Hickey, Michele M.; Pant, Dhruv K.; Durham, Amy C.; Sweet-Cordero, Alejandro; Vachani, Anil; Chodosh, Lewis A.; Kissil, Joseph L.; Simon, M. Celeste; Keith, Brian (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2010-08)
    Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide. The oxygen-sensitive hypoxia inducible factor (HIF) transcriptional regulators HIF-1α and HIF-2α are overexpressed in many human NSCLCs, ...
  • Gomez-Ceballos, Guillelmo; Goncharov, Maxim; Paus, Christoph M. E. (American Physical Society, 2013-09)
    We combine searches by the CDF and D0 Collaborations for the standard model Higgs boson with mass in the range 90–200  GeV/c[superscript 2] produced in the gluon-gluon fusion, WH, ZH, t[¯ over t]H, and vector boson fusion ...
  • Berger, Carola F.; Marcantonini, Claudio; Stewart, Iain; Tackmann, Frank; Waalewijn, Wouter J. (Springer-Verlag, 2011-04)
    A major ingredient in Higgs searches at the Tevatron and LHC is the elimination of backgrounds with jets. In current H → WW → lνlν searches, jet algorithms are used to veto central jets to obtain a 0-jet sample, which ...
  • Cai, Yan; Bessette, Jonathan T.; Kimerling, Lionel C.; Michel, Jurgen; Camacho-Aguilera, Rodolfo Ernesto (Optical Society of America, 2012-09)
    We demonstrate CVD in situ doping of Ge by utilizing phosphorus delta-doping for the creation of a high dopant diffusion source. Multiple monolayer delta doping creates source phosphorous concentrations above 1 × 10[superscript ...
  • Gai, Annie; Wittrup, Karl Dane; Pancer, Zeev; Mariuzza, Roy A.; Flajnik, Martin F.; Xu, Gang; Velikovsky, C. Alejandro; Tasumi, Satoshi (United States National Academy of Sciences, 2009-06)
    Lamprey are members of the ancestral vertebrate taxon (jawless fish), which evolved rearranging antigen receptors convergently with the jawed vertebrates. But instead of Ig superfamily domains, lamprey variable lymphocyte ...
  • Hayden, Joshua A.; Brophy, Megan Brunjes; Nolan, Elizabeth M.; Cunden, Lisa Stephanie (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-12)
    Calprotectin (CP) is a transition metal-chelating antimicrobial protein of the calcium-binding S100 family that is produced and released by neutrophils. It inhibits the growth of various pathogenic microorganisms by ...
  • Demory, Brice-Olivier; Seager, Sara (IOP Publishing, 2011-06)
    Hot Jupiters are expected to be dark from both observations (albedo upper limits) and theory (alkali metals and/or TiO and VO absorption). However, only a handful of hot Jupiters have been observed with high enough photometric ...
  • Gopinath, Juliet; Hong, Kyung-Han; Siddiqui, Aleem M.; Moses, Jeffrey; Lai, Chien-Jen; Hybl, John D.; Fan, Tso Yee (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    We report on a 300-W-level picosecond laser based on a cryogenically-cooled Yb:YAG amplifier seeded by a fiber CPA system. High-average-power picosecond second harmonic generation is also presented.
  • Foley, Maria Hottelet; Forcier, Talitha; McAndrew, Elizabeth; Gonzalez, Michael; Chen, Huabiao; Juelg, Boris; Walker, Bruce D.; Irvine, Darrell J. (Public Library of Science, 2014-02)
    The dissemination of HIV from an initial site of infection is facilitated by motile HIV-infected CD4+ T-cells. However, the impact of infected target cell migration on antigen recognition by HIV-specific CD8+ T-cells is ...
  • Lu, Bin; Palacios, Tomas (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-07)
    In this letter, we present a new technology to increase the breakdown voltage of AlGaN/GaN high-electron-mobility transistors (HEMTs) grown on Si substrates. This new technology is based on the removal of the original Si ...
  • Razavipour, S. G.; Dupont, E.; Chan, Chun Wang Ivan; Xu, C.; Wasilewski, Z. R.; Laframboise, S. R.; Hu, Qing; Ban, D. (American Institute of Physics, 2014-01)
    A Terahertz quantum cascade laser with a rather high injection coupling strength based on an indirectly pumped scheme is designed and experimentally implemented. To effectively suppress leakage current, the chosen quantum ...

    The tetratopic ligand tetrathiafulvalene-tetrabenzoate (H[subscript 4]TTFTB) is used to synthesize Zn[subscript 2](TTFTB), a new metal–organic framework that contains columnar stacks of tetrathiafulvalene and benzoate-lined ...
