  • Zebarjadi, Mona; Esfarjani, Keivan; Yang, Jian; Ren, Z. F.; Chen, Gang (American Physical Society, 2010-11)
    The relations between the thermal conductivity of cagelike structures and their crystal parameters are investigated using a two-dimensional toy model. The model consists of host atoms on a rectangular lattice with fillers ...
  • Warsinger, David Elan Martin; Swaminathan, Jaichander; Chung, Hyung Won; Jeong, Seongpil; Lienhard, John H. (International Desalination Association, 2015-09)
    Fouling and scaling in membrane distillation (MD) is one of the significant barriers to its continued growth. Fouling in MD blocks the pores, causing a decline in permeate flux, and may eventually lead to wetting of a ...
  • Grabinski, Christin; Schaeublin, Nicole; Wijaya, Andy; D’Couto, Helen; Baxamusa, Salmaan H.; Hamad-Schifferli, Kimberly; Hussain, Saber M. (American Chemical Society, 2011-04)
    Gold nanorods (GNRs) stabilized with cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and GNR functionalized via a ligand exchange method with either thiolated polyethylene glycol (PEG5000) or mercaptohexadecanoic acid (MHDA) were ...
  • Zhang, Ce; Guttula, Durgarao; Liu, Fan; Malar, Piravi P.; Ng, Siow Yee; Dai, Liang; van Kan, Jeroen A.; van der Maarel, Johan R. C.; Doyle, Patrick S (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013-08)
    The effect of the bacterial heat-stable nucleoid-structuring protein (H-NS) on the conformation of single DNA molecules confined in a nanochannel was investigated with fluorescence microscopy. With increasing concentration ...
  • Preston, Daniel John; Miljkovic, Nenad; Sack, Jean H.; Enright, Ryan; Queeney, John K.; Wang, Evelyn N.; Wang, Evelyn, N. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2014-07)
    Vapor condensation is routinely used as an effective means of transferring heat, with dropwise condensation exhibiting a 5 − 7x heat transfer improvement compared to filmwise condensation. However, state-of-the-art techniques ...
  • Feng, Y. T.; Jones, Bruce David (Springer International Publishing, 2015-10)
    Digital material characterisation from microstructural geometry is an emerging field in computer simulation. For permeability characterisation, a variety of studies exist where the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) has been ...
  • Ng, Tee Yong (Elsevier, 2011-03)
    I investigate whether information quality affects the cost of equity capital through liquidity risk. Liquidity risk is the sensitivity of stock returns to unexpected changes in market liquidity; recent asset pricing ...
  • Vattre, A. J.; Demkowicz, Michael J. (Elsevier, 2014-04)
    A recent anisotropic elasticity formalism for quantifying interface dislocation arrays is used to compute the variations in long-range elastic fields and short-range strain energies of misfit dislocations due to changes ...
  • Branchini, Lauren; Regatieri, Caio; Adhi, Mehreen; Flores-Moreno, Ignacio; Manjunath, Varsha; Fujimoto, James G.; Duker, Jay S. (American Medical Association, 2013-03)
    A critical method of monitoring patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) being treated with anti–vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) is optical coherence tomography (OCT), which uses ...
  • Keng, Yenmei; Pillai, Priam Vasudevan; Hunter, Ian (Materials Research Society, 2010)
    Conducting polymers can act as actuators when an electrochemical stimulus causes the materials to undergo volumetric changes. Ion flux into the polymer causes volumetric expansion and ion outflow causes contraction. ...
  • Johnstone, Timothy; Lippard, Stephen J. (American Chemical Society, 2013-09)
    In an effort to expand the therapeutic range of platinum anticancer agents, several new approaches to platinum-based therapy, including nanodelivery, are under active investigation. To better understand the effect of ligand ...
  • Alper, Joshua; Hamad-Schifferli, Kimberly (American Chemical Society, 2010-02)
    Thermal interface conductance was measured for soluble gold nanorods (NRs) coated with mercaptocarboxylic acids (HS-(CH[subscript 2])[subscript n]COOH, n = 5, 10, 15), thiolated polyethylene glycols (MW = 356, 1000, 5000), ...
  • Marley, Mark S.; Morley, Caroline V.; Fortney, Jonathan J.; Cahoy, Kerri; Webber, Matthew William; Lewis, Nikole (IOP Publishing, 2015-05)
    We use a planetary albedo model to investigate variations in visible wavelength phase curves of exoplanets. Thermal and cloud properties for these exoplanets are derived using one-dimensional radiative-convective and cloud ...
  • Miller, Jacob A.; Zubair, Syed M.; Lienhard, John H.; Thiel, Gregory Parker (Elsevier, 2013-01)
    The impact of mass extractions and injections as a method for increasing the energetic performance of fixed-size humidification–dehumidification desalination systems is examined. Whereas previous studies of this problem ...
  • Yunes, Nicolas; Miller, M. Coleman; Thornburg, Jonathan (American Physical Society, 2011-02)
    Extreme mass-ratio inspirals, in which a stellar-mass object orbits a supermassive black hole, are prime sources for space-based gravitational wave detectors because they will facilitate tests of strong gravity and probe ...
  • Guo, Jianheng (Institute of Physics/American Astronomical Society, 2010-04)
    By combining mass loss and tidal evolution of close-in planets, we present a qualitative study on their tidal migrations. We incorporate mass loss in tidal evolution for planets with different masses and find that mass ...
  • Wang, Jing; Li, Xitong; Alstott, Jeff; Velu, Chander; Madnick, Stuart E. (Public Library of Science, 2015-09)
    Social mobilization is a process that enlists a large number of people to achieve a goal within a limited time, especially through the use of social media. There is increasing interest in understanding the factors that ...
  • Gattass, Ricardo; Desimone, Robert (MIT Press, 2014-06)
    It is well established that stellar effective temperatures determined from photometry and spectroscopy yield systematically different results. We describe a new, simple method to correct spectroscopically derived temperatures ...
  • Warsinger, David Elan Martin; Swaminathan, Jaichander; Lienhard, John H. (2014-08)
    Air gap membrane distillation (AGMD) experiments were performed with varied temperature and varied module inclination angles to characterize the effect of module angle on permeate production and thermal performance. While ...
  • Moodera, Jagadeesh; Shim, J. H.; Raman, K. V.; Chang, Joonyeon; Borchers, J. A.; Watson, S. M. (American Physical Society, 2009-11)
    Studies have shown that interfaces play a crucial role for efficient spin injection and transport. Here, we address the complex role of interface in spin and charge injection into organic materials by various interface-sensitive ...
