  • Rodriguez, Alejandro W.; Reid, M. T. Homer; Intravaia, Francesco; Woolf, Alexander; Dalvit, D. A. R.; Capasso, Federico; Johnson, Steven G. (American Physical Society, 2013-10)
    We predict that a low-permittivity oblate body (disk-shaped object) above a thin metal substrate (plate with a hole) immersed in a fluid of intermediate permittivity will experience a metastable equilibrium (restoring ...
  • Lazarus, Arnaud; Florijn, H. C. B.; Reis, Pedro Miguel (American Physical Society, 2012-10)
    We present results from an experimental investigation of the indentation of nonspherical pressurized elastic shells with a positive Gauss curvature. A predictive framework is proposed that rationalizes the dependence of ...
  • Petroff, A. P.; Devauchelle, Olivier; Abrams, D. M.; Lobkovsky, Alexander E.; Kudrolli, Arshad; Rothman, Daniel H. (Cambridge University Press, 2011-03)
    Although amphitheatre-shaped valley heads can be cut by groundwater flows emerging from springs, recent geological evidence suggests that other processes may also produce similar features, thus confounding the interpretations ...
  • Jifeng, Liu; Michel, Jurgen; Kimerling, Lionel C. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-11)
    We review recent progress in Ge active photonic devices for electronic-photonic integration on Si, demonstrating new tricks in optoelectronics from this “old” semiconductor material used for the first transistor more than ...
  • Sun, Xiaochen; Liu, Jifeng; Kimerling, Lionel C.; Michel, Jurgen (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    We demonstrate room temperature photoluminescence and optical gain from the direct band gap transition of tensile strained n-type Ge-on-Si around 1600 nm, which can be applied to a Si-based laser for optical interconnects ...
  • Liu, Jifeng; Sun, Xiaochen; Kimerling, Lionel C.; Michel, Jurgen; Camacho-Aguilera, Rodolfo Ernesto (Optical Society of America, 2010-02)
    Monolithic lasers on Si are ideal for high-volume and large-scale electronic–photonic integration. Ge is an interesting candidate owing to its pseudodirect gap properties and compatibility with Si complementary metal oxide ...
  • Evans, Alex J.; Andrews-Hanna, Jeffrey C.; Zuber, Maria (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2010-05)
    The Arabia Terra region, an area of ~1 × 10[superscript 7] km[superscript 2] lying south of the hemispheric dichotomy boundary and centered at (25E, 5N), is a unique physiographic province with topography and crustal ...
  • Schmidt, George T. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-10)
    In this issue of IEEE Control Systems Magazine (CSM) we speak with George Schmidt, who is a lecturer in aeronautics and astronautics at MIT and an industry consultant in guidance, navigation, and control. George has ...
  • Dyrud, Lars P.; Fentzke, Jonathan T.; Cahoy, Kerri; Murphy, Shawn D.; Wiscombe, Warren; Fish, Chad; Gunter, Brian; Bishop, Rebecca; Bust, Gary; Erlandson, Bob; Bauer, Brian; Gupta, Om (SPIE, 2012-04)
    GEOScan is a grassroots effort, proposed as globally networked orbiting observation facility utilizing the main Iridium NEXT 66-satellite constellation. This will create a revolutionary new capability of massively dense, ...
  • Michel, Jurgen; Liu, Jifeng; Kimerling, Lionel C.; Camacho-Aguilera, Rodolfo Ernesto; Bessette, Jonathan T.; Cai, Yan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-05)
    Lasing from Ge was achieved by highly n-type doping and biaxially tensile strain to overcome free carrier absorption. High n-type doping and efficient carrier injection remain the most important issues for electrical ...
  • Gillian, Nicholas; Paradiso, Joseph A. (MIT Press, 2014-10)
    The Gesture Recognition Toolkit is a cross-platform open-source C++ library designed to make real-time machine learning and gesture recognition more accessible for non-specialists. Emphasis is placed on ease of use, with ...
  • Gillian, Nicholas Edward; Pfenninger, Sara; Paradiso, Joseph A.; Russell, Spencer Franklin (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-06)
    Gestures Everywhere is a dynamic framework for multimodal sensor fusion, pervasive analytics and gesture recognition. Our framework aggregates the real-time data from approximately 100 sensors that include RFID readers, ...
  • Yin, Ying; Davis, Randall (2013-12)
    We developed a gesture salience based hand tracking method, and a gesture spotting and recognition method based on concatenated hidden Markov models. A 3-fold cross validation using the ChAirGest development data set with ...
  • Fink, Gerald R. (American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Inc., 2009-09)
    The successful launching of the Russian satellite, Sputnik, in October 1957 changed the course of American Science and my future. The shock waves reached my high school in Freeport, N. Y., a complacent suburb on the south ...
  • Curhan, Jared R.; Elfenbein, Hillary Anger; Kilduff, Gavin J. (American Psychological Association, 2009-01)
    Although negotiation experiences can affect a negotiator’s ensuing attitudes and behavior, little is known about their long-term consequences. Using a longitudinal survey design, we test the degree to which economic and ...
  • Scheuermann, Johanna Charlotte; Boyer, Laurie (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-06)
    Cardiogenesis in mammals requires exquisite control of gene expression and faulty regulation of transcriptional programs underpins congenital heart disease (CHD), the most common defect among live births. Similarly, many ...
  • Charlton, David; Demaine, Erik D.; Demaine, Martin L.; Dujmovic, Vida; Morin, Pat; Uehara, Ryuhei (Canadian Conference on Computational Geometry, 2010-08)
    A planar point set S is an (i, t) set of ghost chimneys if there exist lines H[subscript 0],H[subscript 1],...,H[subscript t-1] such that the orthogonal projection of S onto H[subscript j] consists of exactly i + j distinct ...
  • Hardy, Nicholas David; Shapiro, Jeffrey H. (SPIE (Society), 2010-08)
    Ghost imaging is a transverse imaging technique that relies on the correlation between a pair of light fields, one that has interacted with the object to be imaged and one that has not. Most ghost imaging experiments have ...
  • Shapiro, Jeffrey H.; Venkatraman, Dheera; Wong, Franco N. C. (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-05)
    Ragy and Adesso argue that quantum discord is involved in the formation of a pseudothermal ghost image. We show that quantum discord plays no role in spatial light modulator ghost imaging, i.e., ghost-image formation based ...
  • Meyer, Retsina M.; Burgos-Robles, Anthony Noel; Liu, Elizabeth; dos Santos Correia, Susana Maria; Goosens, Ki Ann (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-10)
    Hormones in the hypothalamus–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis mediate many of the bodily responses to stressors, yet there is no clear relationship between the levels of these hormones and stress-associated mental illnesses ...
