  • Tremblay, Mathieu; Gallant, François; Chiasson, Martine; Silvey, Dustin; Behm, David; Albert, Wayne J.; Johnson, Michel J.; Lavalliere, Martin (Public Library of Science, 2015-02)
    Young drivers are overrepresented in collisions resulting in fatalities. It is not uncommon for young drivers to socially binge drink and decide to drive a vehicle a few hours after consumption. To better understand the ...
  • Levine, Lionel; Fey, Anne; Wilson, David B. (American Physical Society, 2010-04)
    A popular theory of self-organized criticality relates driven dissipative systems to systems with conservation. This theory predicts that the stationary density of the Abelian sandpile model equals the threshold density ...
  • Comtet, Jean; Keshavarz, Bavand; Bush, John W. M. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-10)
    When a drop impacts a thin fiber, a critical impact speed can be defined, below which the drop is entirely captured by the fiber, and above which the drop pinches-off and fractures. We discuss here the capture dynamics of ...
  • Hiranuma, N.; Kohn, M.; Pekour, M. S.; Nelson, D. A.; Shilling, J. E.; Cziczo, Daniel James (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2011-10)
    Droplets produced in a cloud condensation nuclei chamber (CCNC) as a function of supersaturation have been separated from unactivated aerosol particles using counterflow virtual impaction. Residual material after droplets ...
  • Protière, S.; Bazant, Martin Z.; Weitz, D. A.; Stone, H. A. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2010-12)
    In multiphase flow in confined geometries an elementary event concerns the interaction of a droplet with an obstacle. As a model of this configuration we study the collision of a droplet with a circular post that spans a ...
  • Deng, Tao; Varanasi, Kripa; Paxson, Adam T; Smyth, Katherine M; Kwon, HyukMin (ASME International, 2010-08)
    We study the wetting energetics and wetting hysteresis of sessile and impacting water droplets on superhydrophobic surfaces as a function of surface texture and surface energy. Detailed experiments tracking contact line ...
  • Smith, Jonathan David; Dhiman, Rajeev; Anand, Sushant; Reza-Garduno, Ernesto; Cohen, Robert E.; McKinley, Gareth H.; Varanasi, Kripa K (Royal Society of Chemistry, The, 2012-12)
    Non-wetting surfaces containing micro/nanotextures impregnated with lubricating liquids have recently been shown to exhibit superior non-wetting performance compared to superhydrophobic surfaces that rely on stable air–liquid ...
  • Gilet, Tristan; Bush, John W. M. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2012-12)
    We present the results of an experimental investigation of fluid drops impacting an inclined rigid surface covered with a thin layer of high viscosity fluid. We deduce the conditions under which droplet bouncing, splitting, ...
  • Moon, Sangjun; Kim, Yun-Gon; Dong, Lingsheng; Lombardi, Michael; Haeggstrom, Edward; Jensen, Roderick V.; Hsiao, Li-Li; Demirci, Utkan (Public Library of Science, 2011-03)
    Technologies that rapidly isolate viable single cells from heterogeneous solutions have significantly contributed to the field of medical genomics. Challenges remain both to enable efficient extraction, isolation and ...
  • Renvoise, P.; Bush, John W. M.; Prakash, Manu; Quere, D. (European Physical Society by EDP Sciences, IOP Publishing and Società Italiana di Fisica, 2009-07)
    We present the results of a combined experimental and theoretical investigation of the motion of wetting droplets in tapered capillary tubes. We demonstrate that drops may move spontaneously towards the tapered end owing ...
  • Bush, John W. M.; Molacek, Jan (Cambridge University Press, 2013-06)
    We present the results of a combined experimental and theoretical investigation of millimetric droplets bouncing on a vertically vibrating fluid bath. We first characterize the system experimentally, deducing the dependence ...
  • Bush, John W. M.; Molacek, Jan (Cambridge University Press, 2013-06)
    We present the results of a combined experimental and theoretical investigation of droplets walking on a vertically vibrating fluid bath. Several walking states are reported, including pure resonant walkers that bounce ...
  • Rykaczewski, Konrad; Paxson, Adam T.; Staymates, Matthew; Walker, Marlon L.; Sun, Xiaoda; Anand, Sushant; Srinivasan, Siddarth; McKinley, Gareth H.; Chinn, Jeff; Scott, John Henry J.; Varanasi, Kripa K. (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-03)
    Compared to the significant body of work devoted to surface engineering for promoting dropwise condensation heat transfer of steam, much less attention has been dedicated to fluids with lower interfacial tension. A vast ...
  • Miljkovic, Nenad; Enright, Ryan; Alvarado, Jorge; Kwang, Kim; Rose, John (Taylor & Francis, 2014-03)
    In this review we cover recent developments in the area of surface- enhanced dropwise condensation against the background of earlier work. The development of fabrication techniques to create surface structures at the micro- ...
  • Rodal, Avital A.; Del Signore, Steven J.; Martin, Adam C (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2015-05)
    For the last 100 years, Drosophila melanogaster has been a powerhouse genetic system for understanding mechanisms of inheritance, development, and behavior in animals. In recent years, advances in imaging and genetic tools ...
  • Unhavaithaya, Yingdee; Park, Eugenia A.; Royzman, Irena; Orr-Weaver, Terry L. (Genetics Society of America, 2013-08)
    Nearly all cell division mutants in Drosophila were recovered in late larval/pupal lethal screens, with less than 10 embryonic lethal mutants identified, because larval development occurs without a requirement for cell ...
  • Park, Sang Mee; Park, Hae Ryoun; Littleton, J. Troy; Lee, Ji Hye (Korean Society for Brain and Neural Science (KAMJE), 2016-02)
    Copy number variations at multiple chromosomal loci, including 16p11.2, have recently been implicated in the pathogenesis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a neurodevelopmental disease that affects 1~3% of children ...
  • Hongaya, Cintia F.; Orr-Weaver, Terry L. (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), 2011-08)
    N⁶-methyladenosine is a nonediting RNA modification found in mRNA of all eukaryotes, from yeast to humans. Although the functional significance of N⁶-methyladenosine is unknown, the Inducer of MEiosis 4 (IME4) gene of ...
  • Hannan, Shabab B.; Stapper, Zeenna A.; Kern, Jeannine V.; Jahn, Thomas R.; Rasse, Tobias M.; Zhang, Yao (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2016-09)
    Mutations in the kinesin-3 family member KIF1A have been associated with hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP), hereditary and sensory autonomic neuropathy type 2 (HSAN2) and non-syndromic intellectual disability (ID). Both ...
  • Krench, Megan A.; Cho, Richard W.; Littleton, J. Troy (Oxford University Press, 2016-05)
    Huntington disease-like 2 (HDL2) and Huntington disease (HD) are adult-onset neurodegenerative diseases characterized by movement disorders, psychiatric disturbances and cognitive decline. Brain tissue from HD and HDL2 ...
