  • Sivalingam, Lenin Ravindranth; Newport, Calvin Charles; Balakrishnan, Hari; Madden, Samuel R. (USENIX Association, 2011-03)
    With the proliferation of mobile wireless devices such as smartphones and tablets that are used in a wide range of locations and movement conditions, it has become important for wireless protocols to adapt to different ...
  • Jadidian, Jouya; Zahn, Markus; Lavesson, Nils; Widlund, Ola; Borg, Karl (American Institute of Physics, 2012-05)
    Theoretical images of streamers, revealing the mechanisms behind impulse breakdown in liquid dielectrics, are presented. Streamers lead to electrical breakdown by forming paths, capable of carrying large current amplitudes ...
  • Yosef, Nir; Regev, Aviv (Elsevier B.V., 2011-03)
    Regulatory circuits controlling gene expression constantly rewire to adapt to environmental stimuli, differentiation cues, and disease. We review our current understanding of the temporal dynamics of gene expression in ...
  • Lander, Eric S. (New England Journal of Medicine, 2014-11)
    Background Ezetimibe lowers plasma levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol by inhibiting the activity of the Niemann–Pick C1-like 1 (NPC1L1) protein. However, whether such inhibition reduces the risk of coronary ...
  • Littleton, J. Troy; Zhang, Sheng; Saraswati, Sudipta; Feany, Mel B.; Perrimon, Norbert (Company of Biologists, 2009-05)
    A polyglutamine expansion in the huntingtin (HTT) gene causes neurodegeneration in Huntington’s disease (HD), but the in vivo function of the native protein (Htt) is largely unknown. Numerous biochemical and in vitro studies ...
  • Lohman, Gregory J. S.; Gerfen, Gary J.; Stubbe, JoAnne (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2010-01)
    Ribonucleotide reductase (RNR, 76 kDa) from Lactobacillus leichmannii is a class II RNR that requires adenosylcobalamin (AdoCbl) as a cofactor. It catalyzes the conversion of nucleoside triphosphates to deoxynucleotides ...
  • Lohman, Gregory J. S.; Stubbe, JoAnne (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2010-02)
    Ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) from Lactobacillus leichmannii, a 76 kDa monomer using adenosylcobalamin (AdoCbl) as a cofactor, catalyzes the conversion of nucleoside triphosphates to deoxynucleotides and is rapidly (<30 ...
  • D'Souza, Arvind I.; Ionescu, A. C.; Salcido, M.; Robinson, E.; Dawson, L. C.; Okerlund, D. L.; de Lyon, T. J.; Rajavel, R. D.; Sharifi, H.; Yap, D.; Beliciu, M.L.; Mehta, S.; Dai, W.; Chen, Gang; Dhar, Nibir; Wijewarnasuriya, P. (SPIE--the International Society for Optical Engineering, 2011-05)
    The Photon-Trap Structures for Quantum Advanced Detectors (PT-SQUAD) program requires MWIR detectors at 200 K. One of the ambitious requirements is to obtain high (> 80 %) quantum efficiency over the visible to MWIR spectral ...
  • Allen, Peter M.; Liu, Wenhao; Chauhan, Vikash P.; Lee, Jungmin; Ting, Alice Y.; Fukumura, Dai; Jain, Rakesh K.; Bawendi, Moungi G. (American Chemical Society, 2009-12)
    We present the synthesis of InAs quantum dots (QDs) with a ZnCdS shell with bright and stable emission in the near-infrared (NIR, 700−900 nm) region for biological imaging applications. We demonstrate how NIR QDs can image ...
  • Santer, B. D.; Painter, J. F.; Mears, C. A.; Doutriaux, Charles; Caldwell, P.; Arblaster, J. M.; Cameron-Smith, P.; Gillett, N. P.; Gleckler, P. J.; Lanzante, J.; Perlwitz, J.; Stott, P. A.; Taylor, K. E.; Terray, L.; Thorne, P. W.; Wehner, M. F.; Wentz, F. J.; Wigley, T. M. L.; Wilcox, L. J.; Zou, C.-Z. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2012-11)
    We perform a multimodel detection and attribution study with climate model simulation output and satellite-based measurements of tropospheric and stratospheric temperature change. We use simulation output from 20 climate ...
  • Schiller, Peter H. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2010-08)
    In the retina, several parallel channels originate that extract different attributes from the visual scene. This review describes how these channels arise and what their functions are. Following the introduction four ...
  • Landreman, M.; Parra, F.I.; Theiler, Christian; Lipschultz, Bruce; Ernst, Darin R.; Hughes, Jerry W., Jr.; Catto, Peter J.; Hutchinson, Ian H.; Reinke, Matthew Logan; Hubbard, Amanda E.; Marmar, Earl S.; Churchill, Randy Michael; Terry, J. T.; Walk, John R., Jr.; Hughes Jr., Jerry W.; Walk Jr., John R. (IOP Publishing, 2014-06)
    We present inboard (HFS) and outboard (LFS) radial electric field (E[subscript r]) and impurity temperature (T[subscript z]) measurements in the I-mode and H-mode pedestal of Alcator C-Mod. These measurements reveal strong ...
  • Loiseau, Patrick; Schwartz, Galina; Musacchio, John; Amin, Saurabh; Sastry, S. Shankar (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-04)
    Mobile data traffic has been steadily rising in the past years. This has generated a significant interest in the deployment of incentive mechanisms to reduce peak-time congestion. Typically, the design of these mechanisms ...
  • Pierre, Azoulay; Graff Zivin, Joshua S.; Gustavo, Manso (Rand Corporation, 2011-09)
    Despite its presumed role as an engine of economic growth, we know surprisingly little about the drivers of scientific creativity. We exploit key differences across funding streams within the academic life sciences to ...
  • Angrist, Joshua; Lang, Daniel; Oreopoulos, Philip (American Economic Association, 2009-01)
    Many North American college students have trouble satisfying degree requirements in a timely manner. This paper reports on a randomized field experiment involving two strategies designed to improve academic performance ...
  • Kojima, Fuhito; Pathak, Parag (American Economic Association, 2009-06)
    A number of labor markets and student placement systems can be modeled as many-to-one matching markets. We analyze the scope for manipulation in many-to-one matching markets under the student-optimal stable mechanism when ...
  • Loiseau, Patrick; Schwartz, Galina; Musacchio, John; Amin, Saurabh (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-01)
    The Internet is plagued with congestion problems of growing severity which are worst at peak periods. In this paper, we compare two schemes that incentivize users to shift part of their usage from the peak-time to the ...
  • Duflo, Esther; Hanna, Rema; Ryan, Stephen (American Economic Association, 2012-06)
    We use a randomized experiment and a structural model to test whether monitoring and financial incentives can reduce teacher absence and increase learning in India. In treatment schools, teachers' attendance was monitored ...
  • Melvin, Adam T.; Welf, Erik S.; Wang, Yana; Irvine, Darrell J.; Haugh, Jason M.; Irvine, Darrell J. (Elsevier, 2011-04)
