  • Vitale, Salvatore; Veitch, John; Raymond, Vivien; Sturani, Riccardo; Lynch, Ryan Christopher (American Physical Society, 2014-06)
    Compact binary coalescences are the most promising sources of gravitational waves (GWs) for ground-based detectors. Binary systems containing one or two spinning black holes are particularly interesting due to spin-orbit ...
  • Adalgeirsson, Sigurdur Orn; Breazeal, Cynthia Lynn (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-03)
    Telepresence refers to a set of technologies that allow users to feel present at a distant location; telerobotics is a subfield of telepresence. This paper presents the design and evaluation of a telepresence robot which ...
  • Randell, John C.W.; Fan, Andy; Chan, Clara; Francis, Laura I.; Heller, Ryan C.; Bell, Stephen P.; Galani, Kyriakitsa (Elsevier, 2010-11)
    Activation of the eukaryotic replicative DNA helicase, the Mcm2-7 complex, requires phosphorylation by Cdc7/Dbf4 (Dbf4-dependent kinase or DDK), which, in turn, depends on prior phosphorylation of Mcm2-7 by an unknown ...
  • Tse, Janet M.; Cheng, Gang; Tyrrell, James A.; Wilcox-Adelman, Sarah A.; Boucher, Yves; Jain, Rakesh K.; Munn, Lance L. (National Academy of Sciences, 2012-01)
    Uncontrolled growth in a confined space generates mechanical compressive stress within tumors, but little is known about how such stress affects tumor cell behavior. Here we show that compressive stress stimulates migration ...
  • Ovchinnikov, Victor; Trout, Bernhardt L.; Karplus, Martin (Elsevier B.V., 2009-10)
    Myosin motor function depends on the interaction between different domains that transmit information from one part of the molecule to another. The interdomain coupling in myosin V is studied with restrained targeted molecular ...
  • Esser, Birgit; Mirica, Katherine; Weis, Jonathan Garrett; Schnorr, Jan Markus; Swager, Timothy Manning (Wiley Blackwell, 2012-10)
    Pencil it in: Mechanical abrasion of compressed single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) on the surface of paper produces sensors capable of detecting NH[subscript 3] gas at sub-ppm concentrations. This method of fabrication ...
  • Chen, Di; Kuru, Yener; Stefanik, Todd; Tuller, Harry L.; Bishop, Sean; Kim, Jae Jin; Thompson, Nicholas J. (The Electrochemical Society, 2011-05)
    Praseodymium doped cerium oxide (PCO) shows mixed ionic and electronic conducting (MIEC) characteristics at relatively high pO2 (e.g. air) and enhanced oxygen storage capacity (OSC), of interest for solid oxide fuel cell ...
  • Xu, Zhiping; Buehler, Markus J. (American Physical Society, 2010-06)
    Mechanical properties of structural protein materials are crucial for our understanding of biological processes and disease states. Through utilization of molecular simulation based on stress wave tracking, we investigate ...
  • Brigham, Mark D.; Bick, Alexander G.; Lo, Edward; Bendali, Amel; Burdick, Jason A.; Khademhosseini, Ali (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2009-07)
    In this work, we present a class of hydrogels that leverage the favorable properties of the photo-cross-linkable hyaluronic acid (HA) and semi-interpenetrating collagen components. The mechanical properties of the ...
  • Buell, Sezen; Van Vliet, Krystyn J.; Rutledge, Gregory C. (American Chemical Society, 2009-06)
    The extent to which the intrinsic mechanical properties of polymer fibers depend on physical size has been a matter of dispute that is relevant to most nanofiber applications. Here, we report the elastic and plastic ...
  • Gauvin, Robert; Guillemette, Maxime D.; Galbraith, Todd; Bourget, Jean-Michel; Larouche, Danielle; Marcoux, Hugo; Aube, David; Hayward, Cindy; Auger, Francois A.; Germain, Lucie (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2011-07)
    There is a clinical need for better blood vessel substitutes, as current surgical procedures are limited by the availability of suitable autologous vessels and suboptimal behavior of synthetic grafts in small caliber ...
  • Lieleg, Oliver; Caldara, Marina; Baumgärtel, Regina; Ribbeck, Katharina (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2011-02)
    Biofilms grow on various surfaces and in many different environments, a phenomenon that constitutes major problems in industry and medicine. Despite their importance little is known about the viscoelastic properties of ...
  • Wang, Lifeng; Ortiz, Christine; Boyce, Mary Cunningham (ASME International, 2010-12)
    The force-depth behavior of indentation into fibrillar-structured surfaces such as those consisting of forests of micro- or nanoscale tubes or rods is a depth-dependent behavior governed by compression, bending, and buckling ...
  • Hefty, Robert C.; Holt, Judson; Tate, Matthew R.; Ceyer, Sylvia (American Institute of Physics, 2009-04)
    Xenon difluoride is observed to react with Si–Si σ-dimer and σ-lattice bonds of Si(100)2×1 at 150 K by single and two atom abstraction at F coverages above 1 ML. As in the limit of zero F coverage, a measurable fraction ...
  • McCarren, P. R.; Liu, Peng; Cheong, Paul Ha-Yeon; Jamison, Timothy F.; Houk, K. N. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2009-04)
    The mechanism of nickel-catalyzed reductive alkyne−aldehyde coupling reactions has been investigated using density functional theory. The preferred mechanism involves oxidative cyclization to form the nickeladihydrofuran ...
  • Wishnok, John S.; Wogan, Gerald N.; Seneviratne, Uthpala I.; Godoy, Luiz Claudio; Tannenbaum, Steven Robert (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2013-04)
    Nitrosothiols (RSNOs) have been proposed as important intermediates in nitric oxide (NO[superscript •]) metabolism, storage, and transport as well as mediators in numerous NO-signaling pathways. RSNO levels are finely ...
  • Pathak, Parag (Annual Reviews, 2011-05)
    The mechanism design approach to student assignment involves the theoretical, empirical, and experimental study of systems used to allocate students into schools around the world. Recent practical experience designing ...
  • Chen, Jing; Micali, Silvio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-12)
    In settings of incomplete information, we put forward (1) a very conservative -- indeed, purely set-theoretic -- model of the beliefs (including totally wrong ones) that each player may have about the payoff types of his ...

    The recently reported fast oxygen reduction kinetics at the interface of (La,Sr)CoO3−δ (LSC113) and (La,Sr)2CoO4+δ (LSC214) phases opened up new questions for the potential role of dissimilar interfaces in advanced cathodes ...
