(Institute of Physics/American Astronomical Society, 2014-12)
    The low-mass X-ray binary (LMXB) Cen X-4 is the brightest and closest (<1.2 kpc) quiescent neutron star transient. Previous 0.5-10 keV X-ray observations of Cen X-4 in quiescence identified two spectral components: soft ...
  • Evans, Daniel A.; Reeves, J. N.; Hardcastle, M. J.; Kraft, Ralph P.; Lee, J. C.; Virani, S. N. (Institute of Physics/American Astronomical Society, 2010-02)
    We present results from Suzaku and Swift observations of the nearby radio galaxy 3C 33, and investigate the nature of absorption, reflection, and jet production in this source. We model the 0.5-100 keV nuclear continuum ...

    We experimentally demonstrate a microwave far-field image reconstruction modality with the transverse resolution exceeding the diffraction limit by using a single layer of highly nonlinear metamaterial. The harmonic fields ...
  • Gentine, Pierre; Polcher, J.; Entekhabi, Dara (American Geophysical Union, 2011-05)
    [1] The response of a soil-vegetation-atmosphere continuum model to incoming radiation forcing is investigated in order to gain insights into the coupling of soil and atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) states and fluxes. The ...
  • Robinson, Luke N.; Artpradit, Charlermchai; Raman, Rahul; Shriver, Zachary H.; Ruchirawat, Mathuros; Sasisekharan, Ram (Wiley Blackwell, 2012-04)
    Glycans, or complex carbohydrates, are a ubiquitous class of biological molecule which impinge on a variety of physiological processes ranging from signal transduction to tissue development and microbial pathogenesis. In ...

    Quantum entanglement is a fundamental resource for secure information processing and communications, and hyperentanglement or high-dimensional entanglement has been separately proposed for its high data capacity and error ...
  • Finney-Manchester, Shawn Pete; Maheshri, Narendra (Oxford University Press, 2013-03)
    A major hurdle to evolutionary engineering approaches for multigenic phenotypes is the ability to simultaneously modify multiple genes rapidly and selectively. Here, we describe a method for in vivo-targeted mutagenesis ...
  • Ranganath, Sudhir H.; Levy, Oren; Inamdar, Maneesha S.; Karp, Jeffrey Michael; Ranganath, Sudhir H. (Elsevier B.V., 2012-03)
    The broad repertoire of secreted trophic and immunomodulatory cytokines produced by mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), generally referred to as the MSC secretome, has considerable potential for the treatment of cardiovascular ...
  • Lelas, Karlo; Pezer, Robert; Buljan, Hrvoje; Soljacic, Marin; Dubcek, Tena; Jukic, Dario (IOP Publishing, 2015-12)
    We propose the realization of a grating assisted tunneling scheme for tunable synthetic magnetic fields in optically induced one- and two-dimensional dielectric photonic lattices. As a signature of the synthetic magnetic ...
  • Samuelson, Paul A.; Samuelson, Paul A (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2014-06)
    This brief note reflects on the times when Joseph A. Schumpeter was engaged at Harvard University in Boston/Mass, 1932-1950. A description of Schumpeter’s interaction with friends and collaborators as well as opponents, ...
  • Kortemeyer, Gerd; Droeschler, Stefan; Pritchard, David A (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2013-11)
    In this case study, we demonstrate how in an integrated digital library and course management system, metadata can be generated using a bootstrapping mechanism. The integration encompasses sequencing of content by teachers ...
  • Winn, Joshua Nathan; Johnson, John Asher; Howard, Andrew W.; Marcy, Geoffrey W.; Bakos, Gaspar A.; Hartman, Joel D.; Torres, Guillermo; Albrecht, Simon H.; Narita, Norio (Institute of Physics, 2010-07)
    We present new radial velocity (RV) measurements of HAT-P-13, a star with two previously known companions: a transiting giant planet "b" with an orbital period of 3 days and a more massive object "c" on a 1.2 yr, highly ...

    We report the discovery of HAT-P-30b, a transiting exoplanet orbiting the V = 10.419 dwarf star GSC 0208-00722. The planet has a period P = 2.810595 [plus-minus] 0.000005 days, transit epoch T[subscript c] = 2455456.46561 ...

    We report the discovery by the HATNet survey of three new transiting extrasolar planets orbiting moderately bright (V = 13.2, 12.8, and 11.9) stars. The planets have orbital periods of 4.3012, 3.1290, and 4.4631 days, ...
  • Winn, Joshua Nathan; Johnson, John Asher; Albrecht, Simon H.; Howard, Andrew W.; Marcy, Geoffrey W.; Crossfield, Ian J.; Holman, Matthew J. (American Astronomical Society, 2009-10)
