  • Barsotti, Lisa; Blackburn, Lindy L.; Bodiya, Timothy Paul; Brunet, G.; Cao, Junwei; Corbitt, Thomas R.; Donovan, Frederick J.; Duke, I.; Evans, Matthew J.; Foley, Stephany; Fritschel, Peter K.; Goda, K.; Grimaldi, F.; Harry, Gregory; Hughey, Brennan J.; Katsavounidis, Erotokritos; MacInnis, Myron E.; Markowitz, Jared John; Mason, Kenneth R.; Mittleman, Richard K.; Sarin, P.; Shapiro, B.; Shoemaker, David H.; Smith, Nicolas de Mateo; Stein, Andrew J.; Stein, Leo Chaim; Waldman, Samuel J.; Weiss, Rainer; Wipf, Christopher C.; Zucker, Michael E. (American Physical Society, 2009-08)
    This paper reports on an all-sky search for periodic gravitational waves from sources such as deformed isolated rapidly spinning neutron stars. The analysis uses 840 hours of data from 66 days of the fifth LIGO science run ...

    A search for periodic gravitational waves, from sources such as isolated rapidly spinning neutron stars, was carried out using 510 h of data from the fourth LIGO science run (S4). The search was for quasimonochromatic waves ...
  • Dotti, Edoardo; Micheli, Giacomo (Springer-Verlag, 2015-10)
    In this paper we compute the density of monic and non-monic Eisenstein polynomials of fixed degree having entries in an integrally closed subring of a function field over a finite field. This gives a function field analogue ...
  • Brubaker, Benjamin Brock; Bump, Daniel; Friedberg, Solomon (American Mathematical Society, 2011-12)
    Automorphic forms are generalizations of periodic functions; they are functions on a group that are invariant under a discrete subgroup. A natural way to arrange this invariance is by averaging. Eisenstein series are an ...
  • Bond, Benjamin; Bond, Benjamin R. (Springer Japan, 2015-08)
    Let A⊂([n]r) be a compressed, intersecting family and let X⊂[n]. Let A(X)={A∈A:A∩X≠∅} and Sn,r=([n]r)({1}). Motivated by the Erdős–Ko–Rado theorem, Borg asked for which X⊂[2,n] do we have |A(X)|≤|Sn,r(X)| for all compressed, ...
  • Vacanti, Joseph P.; Hsiao, James C.; Borenstein, Jeffrey T.; Marentis, Theodore C. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-06)
    Precision engineering has been used in the macroworld and in the microscale only with rigid materials. Soft flexible materials commonly used for microfluidics and other bio-MEMS applications have not been aligned with ...
  • Haward, Simon J.; Shen, Amy Q.; McKinley, Gareth H (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-09)
    We investigate purely elastic flow instabilities in the almost ideal planar stagnation point elongational flow field generated by a microfluidic optimized-shape cross-slot extensional rheometer (OSCER). We use time-resolved ...
  • Mizrahi, Boaz; Stefanescu, Cristina F.; Yang, Celine; Lawlor, Michael W.; Ko, Dennis; Kohane, Daniel S; Langer, Robert S (Elsevier, 2011-04)
    Cyanoacrylate glues are easily applied to wounds with good cosmetic results. However, they tend to be brittle and can induce local tissue toxicity. A series of cyanoacrylate monomers with a flexible ether linkage and varying ...
  • Aragones Gomez, Juan Luis; Steimel, Joshua P.; Alexander-Katz, Alfredo (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-04)
    The self-organization of active particles is governed by their dynamic effective interactions. Such interactions are controlled by the medium in which such active agents reside. Here we study the interactions between active ...
  • Chen, Ying; Schuh, Christopher A (Springer US, 2015-10)
    Topology and percolation effects play an important role in heterogeneous materials, but have rarely been studied for higher-order tensor properties. We explore the effective elastic properties of random multiphase materials ...
  • Ditsche, Petra; Gorb, Elena; Gorb, Stanislav; Schimmel, Thomas; Barthlott, Wilhelm; Mayser, Matthias J (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2015-08)
    Immersed in water superhydrophobic surfaces (e.g., lotus) maintain thin temporary air films. In certain aquatic plants and animals, these films are thicker and more persistent. Floating ferns of the genus Salvinia show ...
  • De Mol, Christine; De Vito, Ernesto; Rosasco, Lorenzo Andrea (Elsevier, 2009-01)
    Within the framework of statistical learning theory we analyze in detail the so-called elastic-net regularization scheme proposed by Zou and Hastie [H. Zou, T. Hastie, Regularization and variable selection via the elastic ...

    We report the synthesis and application of an elastic, wearable crosslinked polymer layer (XPL) that mimics the properties of normal, youthful skin. XPL is made of a tunable polysiloxane-based material that can be engineered ...
  • Kamrin, Kenneth N (Springer Nature, 2017-01)
    Different methods exist to control fracture in thin media in order to produce some desired shape or curved edge. Commonly, inhomogeneities are placed along a specific path to guide a fracture, such as scoring a material's ...
  • Li, Ju; Shan, Zhiwei; Ma, Evan (Cambridge University Press (Materials Research Society), 2014-02)
    “Smaller is stronger.” Nanostructured materials such as thin films, nanowires, nanoparticles, bulk nanocomposites, and atomic sheets can withstand non-hydrostatic (e.g., tensile or shear) stresses up to a significant ...
  • Fardin, Marc-Antoine; Lopez, D.; Croso, J.; Gregoire, G.; Cardoso, O.; McKinley, Gareth H.; Lerouge, S. (American Physical Society, 2010-04)
    We study the dynamics of the Taylor-Couette flow of shear banding wormlike micelles. We focus on the high shear rate branch of the flow curve and show that for sufficiently high Weissenberg numbers, this branch becomes ...
  • Chen, C.-Y.; Wu, Yufei; del Alamo, Jesus A. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2015-01)
    We have stressed AlGaN/GaN HEMTs (High Electron Mobility Transistors) under high-power and high-temperature DC conditions that resulted in various levels of device degradation. Following electrical stress, we conducted a ...

    In order to study the flashover mechanism of polluted insulators under AC voltage, a new arc propagation criterion which is based on an arc root voltage gradient is proposed. This criterion can explain the variation of the ...

    Submicrometer fibers of polyaniline (PAni) doped with (+)-camphor-10-sulfonic acid (HCSA) and blended with poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) or poly(ethylene oxide) were electrospun over a range of compositions. Continuous, ...
