  • Adams, Allan; Yaida, Sho (American Physical Society, 2014-08)
    We continue our study of quenched disorder in holographic systems, focusing on the effects of mild electric disorder. By studying the renormalization group evolution of the disorder distribution at subleading order in ...
  • Carlton, Christopher; Kuryak, Chris Adam; Liu, Wei-shu; Ren, Zhifeng; Chen, Gang; Shao-Horn, Yang (American Institute of Physics, 2012-11)
    N-type Bi₂Te₂.₇Se₀.₃ bulk thermoelectric materials with peak ZT values up to ∼1 were examined by transmission electron microscopy and electron diffraction. Two nanostructural features were found: (i) a structural modulation ...
  • Xu, Yishuai; Chiu, Janet; Miao, Lin; He, Haowei; Kapitulnik, A.; Biswas, Rudro R.; Wray, L. Andrew; Alpichshev, Zhanybek (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-02)
    Three-dimensional topological insulators are bulk insulators with Z2 topological electronic order that gives rise to conducting light-like surface states. These surface electrons are exceptionally resistant to localization ...
  • Rodriguez-Nieva, J. F.; Barros, Eduardo B.; Saito, R.; Dresselhaus, Mildred (American Physical Society, 2014-12)
    An analytical study is presented of the double resonant Raman scattering process in graphene, responsible for the D and D′ features in the Raman spectra. This work yields analytical expressions for the D and D′ integrated ...
  • Balents, Leon; Savary, Lucile (American Physical Society, 2017-02)
    We propose that in a certain class of magnetic materials, known as non-Kramers “spin ice,” disorder induces quantum entanglement. Instead of driving glassy behavior, disorder provokes quantum superpositions of spins ...
  • Zhang, Junhua; Nandkishore, Rahul Mahajan; Rossi, E. (American Physical Society, 2015-05)
    The nature of the interaction-driven spontaneously broken-symmetry state in charge-neutral bilayer graphene (BLG) has attracted a lot of interest. Theoretical studies predict various ordered states as the candidates for ...
  • Duflo, Esther; Banerjee, Abhijit (American Economic Association, 2014-05)
    Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) present the potential to deliver high quality education to a large number of students. But they suffer from low completion rates. This paper identifies disorganization as a factor behind ...
  • Zeng, Lingping; Chen, Gang (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2014-08)
    We report disparate quasiballistic heat conduction trends for periodic nanoscale line heaters deposited on a substrate, depending upon whether measurements are based on the peak temperature of the heaters or the temperature ...
  • Shapiro, Jeffrey H. (American Physical Society, 2010-02)
    Franson’s paradigm for nonlocal dispersion cancellation [J. D. Franson, Phys. Rev. A 45, 3126 (1992)] is studied using two kinds of jointly Gaussian-state signal and reference beams with phase-sensitive cross correlations. ...
  • Siber, A.; Rajter, Richard F.; French, R. H.; Ching, W. Y.; Parsegian, V. A.; Podgornik, R. (American Physical Society, 2009-10)
    We derive the complete form of the van der Waals dispersion interaction between two infinitely long anisotropic semiconducting/insulating thin cylinders at all separations. The derivation is based on the general theory of ...
  • Vydrov, Oleg A.; Van Voorhis, Troy (American Physical Society, 2010-06)
    A local approximation for dynamic polarizability leads to a nonlocal functional for the long-range dispersion interaction energy via an imaginary-frequency integral. We analyze several local polarizability approximations ...
  • Yang, Wei; Durisi, Giuseppe; Koch, Tobias; Polyanskiy, Yury (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-06)
    This paper analyzes the channel dispersion of quasi-static multiple-input multiple-output fading channels with no channel state information at the transmitter. We show that the channel dispersion is zero under mild conditions ...
  • Polyanskiy, Yury; Poor, H. Vincent; Verdu, Sergio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-03)
    Channel dispersion plays a fundamental role in assessing the backoff from capacity due to finite blocklength. This paper analyzes the channel dispersion for a simple channel with memory: the Gilbert-Elliott communication ...
  • Pakhotin, I. P.; Walker, S. N.; Balikhin, M. A.; Shprits, Yuri (Copernicus GmbH, 2013-08)
    Multi-point wave observations on Cluster spacecraft are used to infer the dispersion relation of electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves. In this study we use a phase differencing method and observations from STAFF and ...
  • Palangetic, Ljiljana; Reddy, Naveen Krishna; Clasen, Christian; Srinivasan, Siddarth; Cohen, Robert E; McKinley, Gareth H (Elsevier, 2014-08)
    We develop new criteria that describe the minimum concentration limits controlling the spinnability of dilute and semi-dilute flexible polymer solutions with high molecular weight and varying polydispersity. By asserting ...
  • Gârleanu, Nicolae; Panageas, Stavros; Kogan, Leonid (Elsevier, 2012-01)
    We study asset-pricing implications of innovation in a general-equilibrium overlapping-generations economy. Innovation increases the competitive pressure on existing firms and workers, reducing the profits of existing firms ...
  • Masia, Belen; Wetzstein, Gordon; Aliaga, Carlos; Raskar, Ramesh; Gutierrez, Diego (Elsevier, 2013-10)
    Glasses-free automultiscopic displays are on the verge of becoming a standard technology in consumer products. These displays are capable of producing the illusion of 3D content without the need of any additional eyewear. ...
  • Pla i Conesa, Pol; Maes, Patricia (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-02)
    This paper details the design and implementation of a new type of display technology. Display Blocks are a response to two major limitations of current displays: dimensional compression and physical-digital disconnect. ...
  • Pla i Conesa, Pol; Maes, Patricia (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012-05)
    We propose the design, implementation and evaluation of a set of tangible cubic displays. This novel approach to display technology consists of arranging six organic light emitting diode screens in a cubic form factor. We ...
  • Tappan, Jacqueline Marie; Pitman, David J.; Cummings, M. L.; Miglianico, Denis (Springer Science + Business Media B.V., 2011-07)
    This work, a collaboration between Alstom Transport and the MIT Humans and Automation Laboratory (HAL), is focused on the development of an interactive in-cab scheduling interface for train operators. Currently, operators ...
