    Electrospun polyaniline (PAni) fibers doped with different levels of (+)-camphor-10-sulfonic acid (HCSA) are fabricated and evaluated as chemiresistive gas sensors. The experimental results, based on both sensitivity and ...
  • Scholten, Elke; Bromberg, Lev E.; Rutledge, Gregory C.; Hatton, T. Alan (American Chemical Society, 2011-10)
    Electrospun polyurethane fibers for removal of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from air with rapid VOC absorption and desorption have been developed. Polyurethanes based on 4,4-methylenebis(phenylisocyanate) (MDI) and ...
  • Lacoste, David; Menon, G. I.; Bazant, Martin Z.; Joanny, J. F. (Springer-Verlag, 2009-01)
    We discuss the electrostatic contribution to the elastic moduli of a cell or artificial membrane placed in an electrolyte and driven by a DC electric field. The field drives ion currents across the membrane, through ...
  • Miljkovic, Nenad; Enright, Ryan; Wang, Evelyn N.; Preston, Daniel John (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-09)
    With the broad interest in and development of superhydrophobic surfaces for self-cleaning, condensation heat transfer enhancement and anti-icing applications, more detailed insights on droplet interactions on these surfaces ...

    We report on electronic transport measurements of dual-gated nanodevices of the low-carrier density topological insulator (TI) Bi[subscript 1.5]Sb[subscript 0.5]Te[subscript 1.7]Se[subscript 1.3]. In all devices, the upper ...
  • Saenz-Otero, Alvar; Pina, Alexander L.; Wellman, Gregory; Lozano, Paulo C.; Garriott, Richard (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-03)
    Motivated by long-term human exploration missions which could benefit from robotic assistants, a prototype thruster based on an Ion-Drag Pump was developed. This thruster utilizes no consumable propellant. Its operated by ...
  • Kerman, Andrew J.; Yang, Joel K. W.; Molnar, Richard J.; Dauler, Eric A.; Berggren, Karl K. (American Physical Society, 2009-03)
    We investigate the role of electrothermal feedback in the operation of superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs). It is found that the desired mode of operation for SNSPDs is only achieved if this feedback ...
  • Buschhorn, Samuel T.; Kessler, Seth S.; Lachman-Senesh, Noa; Gavin, Jennifer; Thomas, Greg; Wardle, Brian L. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2013-04)
    Ice protection systems (IPS) are critical components for many aerospace flight vehicles, including commercial transports and unmanned aerial systems (UAS), and can include anti-icing, de-icing, ice sensing, etc. Here, an ...
  • Marsili, Francesco; Najafi, Faraz; Herder, Charles Henry; Berggren, Karl K. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2011-03)
    We developed an electrothermal model of NbN superconducting nanowire avalanche photodetectors (SNAPs) on sapphire substrates. SNAPs are single-photon detectors consisting of the parallel connection of N superconducting ...
  • Rollins, A. W.; Fry, J. L.; Hunter, James; Kroll, Jesse; Worsnop, D. R.; Singaram, S. W.; Cohen, R. C. (Copernicus Publications, 2010-02)
    Four hydroxynitrates (R(OH)R'ONO2) representative of atmospheric volatile organic compound (VOC) oxidation products were synthesized, nebulized and sampled into an Aerodyne High Resolution Time of Flight Aerosol Mass ...
  • Hansen, T.; Hansen, C. J.; Christlieb, N.; Beers, T. C.; Yong, D.; Bessell, M. S.; Placco, V. M.; Norris, J. E.; Asplund, M.; Frebel, Anna L.; Perez Garcia, A. E. (IOP Publishing, 2015-07)
    We present a high-resolution elemental-abundance analysis for a sample of 23 very metal-poor ([Fe/H] < −2.0) stars, 12 of which are extremely metal-poor ([Fe/H] < −3.0), and 4 of which are ultra-metal-poor ([Fe/H] < −4.0). ...
  • Chen, Qi; Heald, Colette L.; Jimenez, Jose L.; Canagaratna, Manjula R.; Zhang, Qi; He, Ling-Yan; Huang, Xiao-Feng; Campuzano-Jost, Pedro; Palm, Brett B.; Poulain, Laurent; Kuwata, Mikinori; Martin, Scot T.; Abbatt, Jonathan P. D.; Lee, Alex K.Y.; Liggio, John (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2015-05)
    A large data set including surface, aircraft, and laboratory observations of the atomic oxygen-to-carbon (O:C) and hydrogen-to-carbon (H:C) ratios of organic aerosol (OA) is synthesized and corrected using a recently ...

    Elemental compositions of organic aerosol (OA) particles provide useful constraints on OA sources, chemical evolution, and effects. The Aerodyne high-resolution time-of-flight aerosol mass spectrometer (HR-ToF-AMS) is ...
  • Costinot, Arnaud (Econometric Society, 2009-07)
    Comparative advantage, whether driven by technology or factor endowment, is at the core of neoclassical trade theory. Using tools from the mathematics of complementarity, this paper offers a simple yet unifying perspective ...
  • Costinot, Arnaud; Wang, Su; Vogel, Jonathan (Oxford University Press, 2012-05)
    This article develops an elementary theory of global supply chains. We consider a world economy with an arbitrary number of countries, one factor of production, a continuum of intermediate goods and one final good. Production ...
  • Silbey, Susan S. (Taylor & Francis, 2015-05)
    Engineering is the only profession for which candidates can be licensed with only an undergraduate degree. This attracts students seeking training for occupation more than education, encourages heavy non-discretionary ...
