  • Shirgaonkar, Anup; MacIver, Malcolm A.; Patankar, Neelesh A. (Public Library of Science, 2010-05)
    While there is accumulating evidence for the importance of the metabolic cost of information in sensory systems, how these costs are traded-off with movement when sensing is closely linked to movement is poorly understood. ...
  • Siddiqi, Afreen; Fletcher, Sarah Marie (Springer International Publishing, 2015-02)
    Water end-use, in buildings, industrial facilities, and farms, often has the highest energy intensity. This review highlights key findings on energy intensity of water end-use in urban and agricultural sectors. In the ...
  • Balister, Paul; Bollobas, Bela; Anandkumar, Animashree; Willsky, Alan S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-06)
    The problem of designing policies for in-network function computation with minimum energy consumption subject to a latency constraint is considered. The scaling behavior of the energy consumption under the latency constraint ...
  • Conforti, Matteo; De Angelis, Costantino; Akylas, Triantaphyllos R. (American Physical Society, 2011-04)
    We obtain solitary-wave solutions of a model describing light propagation in binary (linearly and nonlinearly) waveguide arrays. This model describes energy localization and transport in various physical settings, ranging ...
  • Sanchez, William R.; Sodini, Charles G.; Dawson, Joel L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-09)
    We present the first known energy management IC to allow low-power systems, such as biomedical implants, to optimally use ultracapacitors instead of batteries as their chief energy storage elements. The IC, fabricated in ...
  • Roy, Arjun; Rumble, Stephen M.; Stutsman, Ryan; Levis, Philip; Mazieres, David; Zeldovich, Nickolai (Association for Computing Machinery, 2011-04)
    We argue that controlling energy allocation is an increasingly useful and important feature for operating systems, especially on mobile devices. We present two new low-level abstractions in the Cinder operating system, ...

  • Gutowski, Timothy G.; Gershwin, Stanley B.; Bounassisi, Tonio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-07)
    During periods of growth, the energy payback performance of new energy generating technologies deviates substantially from the usual static measures of energy return on investment (EROI), and time to breakeven (tB) for ...
  • Ioakimidis, Christos; Koukouzas, Nikolaos; Chatzimichali, Anna; Casimiro, Sergio; Macarulla, Ana (Elsevier, 2012-01)
    The energy balance of Greece is strongly dependent on imported oil. The rather late introduction of natural gas has increased the diversity of the energy mix while the share of renewable sources in primary energy supply ...
  • Angelopoulos, Georgios; Medard, Muriel; Chandrakasan, Anantha P. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-09)
    This work considers the incorporation, implications and potential energy savings of partial packet recovery schemes in Body Area Networks (BANs). Received packets which have not been fully corrected by the physical layer, ...
  • Shabani, A.; Rabitz, H.; Mohseni, Masoud; Lloyd, Seth (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2014-01)
    Underlying physical principles for the high efficiency of excitation energy transfer in light-harvesting complexes are not fully understood. Notably, the degree of robustness of these systems for transporting energy is not ...
  • Leitermann, Olivia; Kirtley, James L., Jr. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-11)
    Certain energy storage technologies are well-suited to the high-frequency, high-cycling operation which is required in provision of load frequency control (LFC). To limit the total stored energy capacity required while ...
  • Ferrara, Daniela; Mohler, Kathrin Juliane; Waheed, Nadia; Adhi, Mehreen; Liu, Jonathan Jaoshin; Grulkowski, Ireneusz; Kraus, Martin F.; Baumal, Caroline; Hornegger, Joachim; Fujimoto, James G.; Duker, Jay S. (Elsevier, 2014-03)
    Objective To characterize en face features of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and choroid in eyes with chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) using a high-speed, enhanced-depth swept-source optical coherence ...
  • Pardal, Miguel L.; Harrison, Mark; Marques, Jose Alves; Sarma, Sanjay Emani (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-11)
    Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology allows automatic data capture from tagged objects moving in a supply chain. This data can be very useful if it is used to answer traceability queries, however it is distributed ...
  • Beisel, Uli; Reeves, R. Guy; Boete, Christophe; Castro, Luisa Reis; Cesard, Nicolas (BioMed Central, 2015-08)
    Background Pioneering technologies (e.g., nanotechnology, synthetic biology or climate engineering) are often associated with potential new risks and uncertainties that can become sources of controversy. The communication ...
  • Martorell, Jordi; Edelman, Elazer R.; Santoma, Pablo; Molins, Jose J.; Garcia-Granada, Andres A.; Bea, Jose A.; Balcells-Camps, Mercedes (Wiley Blackwell, 2012-04)
    This paper reviews how biomedical engineers, in collaboration with physicians, biologists, chemists, physicists, and mathematicians, have developed models to explain how the impact of vascular interventions on blood flow ...
  • Deerinck, Thomas J.; Sancak, Yasemin; Poulos, Thomas L.; Mootha, Vamsi K.; Sosinsky, Gina E.; Ellisman, Mark H.; Martell, Jeffrey Daniel; Ting, Alice Y. (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-10)
    Electron microscopy (EM) is the standard method for imaging cellular structures with nanometer resolution, but existing genetic tags are inactive in most cellular compartments[superscript 1] or require light and can be ...
  • Jay, Steven M.; Kurtagic, Elma; Alvarez, Luis M.; De Picciotto, Seymour; Sanchez Palacios, Edgar I.; Hawkins, Jessica F.; Prince, Robin N.; Guerrero, Yadir; Treasure, Carolyn L.; Lee, Richard T.; Griffith, Linda G. (American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), 2011-05)
    The ErbB receptor family is dysregulated in many cancers, and its therapeutic manipulation by targeted antibodies and kinase inhibitors has resulted in effective chemotherapies. However, many malignancies remain refractory ...
