  • McKinley, Gareth H.; Choi, Wonjae; Cohen, Robert E.; Tuteja, Anish; Chhatre, Shreerang S.; Mabry, Joseph M. (Wiley-VCH, 2009-03)
    A simple “dip-coating” process that imbues oleophobicity to various surfaces that inherently possess re-entrant texture, such as commercially available fabrics, is reported. These dip-coated fabric surfaces exhibit reversible, ...
  • Weigelt, Sarah; Koldewyn, Kami; Kanwisher, Nancy (Public Library of Science, 2013-09)
    Although many studies have reported face identity recognition deficits in autism spectrum disorders (ASD), two fundamental question remains: 1) Is this deficit “process specific” for face memory in particular, or does it ...
  • Joo, Jaebum; Chow, Brian Y.; Prakash, Manu; Boyden, Edward Stuart; Jacobson, Joseph (Nature Publishing Group, 2011-07)
    Rational control over the morphology and the functional properties of inorganic nanostructures has been a long-standing goal in the development of bottom-up device fabrication processes. We report that the geometry of ...
  • Austin, Thomas H.; Yang, Jean; Flanagan, Cormac; Solar-Lezama, Armando (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-06)
    It is important for applications to protect sensitive data. Even for simple confidentiality and integrity policies, it is often difficult for programmers to reason about how the policies should interact and how to enforce ...
  • Seah, Boon-Siew; Bhowmick, Sourav S.; Dewey, C. Forbes (Oxford University Press, 2012-08)
    Motivation: The availability of large-scale curated protein interaction datasets has given rise to the opportunity to investigate higher level organization and modularity within the protein–protein interaction (PPI) network ...
  • Jacox, Laura A.; Dickinson, Amanda J.; Sive, Hazel L. (MyJoVE Corporation, 2014-03)
    Craniofacial birth defects occur in 1 out of every 700 live births, but etiology is rarely known due to limited understanding of craniofacial development. To identify where signaling pathways and tissues act during patterning ...
  • Jiao, Tifeng; Liu, Yazhou; Wu, Yitian; Zhang, Qingrui; Yan, Xuehai; Gao, Faming; Bauer, Adam J. P.; Liu, Jianzhao; Zeng, Tingying; Li, Bingbing (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-07)
    This study reports the facile preparation and the dye removal efficiency of nanohybrids composed of graphene oxide (GO) and Fe[subscript 3]O[subscript 4] nanoparticles with various geometrical structures. In comparison to ...
  • Jung, Sung Mi; Jung, Hyun Young; Dresselhaus, Mildred; Jung, Yung Joon; Kong, Jing (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-11)
    Aerogels have numerous applications due to their high surface area and low densities. However, creating aerogels from a large variety of materials has remained an outstanding challenge. Here, we report a new methodology ...
  • Manna, Cesar M.; Nassar, Mostafa Y.; Tofan, Daniel; Chakarawet, Khetpakorn; Cummins, Christopher C. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014)
    We herein report the preparation of several mononuclear-metaphosphate complexes using simple techniques and mild conditions with yields ranging from 56% to 78%. Treatment of cyclo-tetrametaphosphate ([TBA]4[P4O12]·5H2O, ...
  • Cho, Daehwan; Kim, Moonkyoung; Hwang, Jeonghyun; Park, Jay Hoon; Joo, Yong Lak; Jeong, Youngjin (Biomed Central Ltd., 2015-10)
    We report a facile fabrication of porous silicon nanofibers by a simple three-stage procedure. Polymer/silicon precursor composite nanofibers are first fabricated by electrospinning, a water-based spinning dope, which ...
  • Mehta, Soham Uday; Yao, JiaXian; Ramamoorthi, Ravi; Durand, Fredo (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-07)
    Monte Carlo (MC) ray-tracing for photo-realistic rendering often requires hours to render a single image due to the large sampling rates needed for convergence. Previous methods have attempted to filter sparsely sampled ...
  • Bauer, Christian W.; Tackmann, Frank; Walsh, Jonathan R.; Zuberi, Saba (American Physical Society, 2012-04)
    Multijet cross sections at the LHC and Tevatron are sensitive to several distinct kinematic energy scales. When measuring the dijet invariant mass mjj between two signal jets produced in association with other jets or weak ...
  • Tackmann, Frank; Waalewijn, Wouter Jonathan; Stewart, Iain (American Physical Society, 2010-05)
    We study proton-(anti)proton collisions at the LHC or Tevatron in the presence of experimental restrictions on the hadronic final state and for generic parton momentum fractions. At the scale Q of the hard interaction, ...
  • Slotine, Jean-Jacques E.; Belabbas, M. -A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-07)
    In this paper, we introduce new results in the analysis of convergence of nonlinear systems. The point of view we take is the one of contraction theory and we focus in particular on convergence to smooth manifolds. A main ...
  • Pridgen, Eric; Molnar, Linda K.; Farokhzad, Omid C.; Alexis, Frank (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2008-08)
    Nanoparticle (NP) drug delivery systems (5−250 nm) have the potential to improve current disease therapies because of their ability to overcome multiple biological barriers and releasing a therapeutic load in the optimal ...
  • Lee, Wonyoung; Yildiz, Bilge (Electrochemical Society, 2013-10)
    As the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) becomes more critical for development of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) that operate at 500-700 °C, the correlation between the surface chemistry and electrochemical performance is ...
  • Molaei, Mehdi; Barry, Michael; Stocker, Roman; Sheng, Jian (American Physical Society, 2014-08)
    Understanding how bacteria move close to surfaces is crucial for a broad range of microbial processes including biofilm formation, bacterial dispersion, and pathogenic infections. We used digital holographic microscopy to ...
  • Gilbertson, Eric W.; Hover, Franz S.; Colina, Ed (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2010-06)
    Gas-lifted oil wells are susceptible to failure through malfunction of gas lift valves. This is a growing concern as offshore wells are drilled thousands of meters below the ocean floor in extreme temperature and pressure ...
  • Paparcone, Raffaella; Buehler, Markus J. (Elsevier, 2011-02)
    Amyloid fibrils and plaques are detected in the brain tissue of patients affected by Alzheimer’s disease, but have also been found as part of normal physiological processes such as bacterial adhesion. Due to their highly ...
  • Thompson, Todd Wesley; Waskom, Michael L.; Garel, Keri-Lee Alyson; Cardenas-Iniguez, Carlos; Reynolds, Gretchen O.; Winter, Rebecca; Chang, Patricia; Pollard, Kiersten; Lala, Nupur; Alvarez, George A.; Gabrieli, John D. E. (Public Library of Science, 2013-05)
    Fluid intelligence is important for successful functioning in the modern world, but much evidence suggests that fluid intelligence is largely immutable after childhood. Recently, however, researchers have reported gains ...
