    This paper presents a decentralized control strategy for positioning and orienting multiple robotic cameras to collectively monitor an environment. The cameras may have various degrees of mobility from six degrees of ...
  • Granit, R. Z.; Gabai, Y.; Hadar, T.; Karamansha, Y.; Liberman, Leslie D.; Waldhorn, I.; Maly, B.; Darash-Yahana, M.; Peretz, T.; Ben-Porath, Ittai; Regev, Aviv; Gat-Viks, Irit (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-09)
    The mechanisms regulating breast cancer differentiation state are poorly understood. Of particular interest are molecular regulators controlling the highly aggressive and poorly differentiated traits of basal-like breast ...
  • Mak, Hannah; Naba, Alexandra; Varma, Sonal; Schick, Colleen; Day, Andrew; SenGupta, Sandip K; Arpin, Monique; Elliott, Bruce E (BioMed Central Ltd., 2012-03)
    Background The membrane cytoskeletal crosslinker, ezrin, a member of the ERM family of proteins, is frequently over-expressed in human breast cancers, and is required for motility and invasion of epithelial cells. Our group ...
  • Zwaenepoel, Ingrid; Da, Marcel Menezes Lyra; Maestro, Laurence Del; Formstecher, Etienne; Louvard, Daniel; Arpin, Monique; Naba, Alexandra (American Society for Cell Biology, 2012-01)
    The mechanisms that regulate actin filament polymerization resulting in the morphogenesis of the brush border microvilli in epithelial cells remain unknown. Eps8, the prototype of a family of proteins capable of capping ...
  • Finkelstein, Amy (MIT Press, 2009-08)
    This paper examines whether the salience of a tax system affects equilibrium tax rates. I analyze how tolls change after toll facilities adopt electronic toll collection (ETC); drivers are substantially less aware of tolls ...
  • Shugrina, Maria; Shamir, Ariel; Matusik, Wojciech (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2015-08)
    We address the problem of allowing casual users to customize parametric models while maintaining their valid state as 3D-printable functional objects. We define Fab Form as any design representation that lends itself to ...
  • Levin, Anat; Glasner, Daniel; Xiong, Ying; Matusik, Wojciech; Zickler, Todd; Durand, Fredo; Freeman, William T. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-07)
    Recent attempts to fabricate surfaces with custom reflectance functions boast impressive angular resolution, yet their spatial resolution is limited. In this paper we present a method to construct spatially varying reflectance ...
  • Dextras, Philip; Payer, Kristofor Robert; Burg, Thomas P.; Shen, Wenjiang; Wang, Ying-Chih; Han, Jongyoon; Manalis, Scott R. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-02)
    We report on a fabrication and packaging process for a microsystem consisting of a mass-based protein detector and a fully integrated preconcentrator. Preconcentration of protein is achieved by means of a nanofluidic ...
  • Ross, Caroline A.; Kimerling, Lionel C.; Hu, Juejun; Bi, Lei (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2010-01)
    We report two novel strategies to integrate magneto-optical oxides on oxidized silicon and SOI platforms based on strip-loaded waveguide structures. By using conventional waveguide fabrication and thin film deposition ...
  • Wei, Lei; Sorin, Fabien; Lestoquoy, Guillaume; Joannopoulos, John D.; Fink, Yoel; Stolyarov, Alexander Mark (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2012-07)
    We report on an all-in-fiber liquid crystal (LC) structure designed for the modulation of light incident transverse to the fiber axis. A hollow cavity flanked by viscous conductors is introduced into a polymer matrix, and ...
  • Lestoquoy, Guillaume; Wang, Zheng; Joannopoulos, John D.; Fink, Yoel; Chocat, Noemie (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013-04)
    We report on the fabrication of all-in-fiber capacitors with poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) as the dielectric material. Electrodes made of conductive polymer are separated by a PVDF thin film within a polycarbonate casing ...
  • del Alamo, Jesus A.; Wu, Joyce H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    We developed a through-substrate copper-damascene interconnect technology in silicon with minimal impedance. Via impedance was extracted using parameter measurements at 50 GHz that were matched to simple circuit models. ...
  • Daniilidis, N.; Narayanan, Siddharth Madhavan; Moller, S. A.; Clark, R.; Lee, T. E.; Leek, P. J.; Wallraff, A.; Schulz, Stephan Alf; Schmidt-Kaler, F.; Haffner, H. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2011-01)
    We report heating rate measurements in a microfabricated gold-on-sapphire surface electrode ion trap with a trapping height of approximately 240 μm. Using the Doppler recooling method, we characterize the trap heating rates ...

    Here we report the synthesis of graphene oxide nanoscrolls (GONS) with tunable dimensions via low and high frequency ultrasound solution processing techniques. GONS can be visualized as a graphene oxide (GO) sheet rolled ...
  • Schattenburg, Mark Lee; Ahn, Minseung; Heilmann, Ralf K. (The International Society for Optical Engineering, 2008-07)
