  • Maimone, Thomas J.; Noel, Timothy; Buchwald, Stephen Leffler (Wiley Blackwell, 2011-08)
    A flow process for Pd-catalyzed C-F bond formation is described. A microreactor with a packed-bed design allows for easy handling of large quantities of insoluble CsF with precise control over reaction times, efficient ...
  • Scott, Daniel; Lee, Joon; Silva, Ikaro; Park, Shinhyuk; Moody, George B.; Celi, Leo Anthony G.; Mark, Roger Greenwood (BioMed Central Ltd, 2013-01)
    Background: The Multiparameter Intelligent Monitoring in Intensive Care II (MIMIC-II) database is a free, public resource for intensive care research. The database was officially released in 2006, and has attracted a growing ...
  • Parandehgheibi, Ali; Medard, Muriel; Ozdaglar, Asuman E.; Shakkottai, Srinivas (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-12)
    We study the design of media streaming applications in the presence of multiple heterogeneous wireless access methods with different throughputs and costs. Our objective is to analytically characterize the trade-off between ...
  • Torralba, Antonio; Freeman, William T. (Springer-Verlag, 2014-03)
    We identify and study two types of “accidental” images that can be formed in scenes. The first is an accidental pinhole camera image. The second class of accidental images are “inverse” pinhole camera images, formed by ...
  • Abdulkadiroglu, Atila; Angrist, Joshua; Dynarski, Susan M.; Kane, Thomas J.; Pathak, Parag (President and Fellows of Harvard College, 2011-03)
    We use student assignment lotteries to estimate the effect of charter school attendance on student achievement in Boston. We also evaluate a related alternative, Boston's pilot schools. Pilot schools have some of the ...
  • Melis, Carl; Farihi, J.; Dufour, P.; Zuckerman, B.; Burgasser, Adam; Bergeron, P.; Bochanski, J.; Simcoe, Robert A. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2011-04)
    We present optical and infrared characterization of the polluted DAZ white dwarf GALEX J193156.8+011745. Imaging and spectroscopy from the ultraviolet to the thermal infrared indicate that this white dwarf hosts excess ...
  • Hautier, Geoffroy; Ong, Shyue Ping; Jain, Anubhav; Moore, Charles Jacob; Ceder, Gerbrand (American Physical Society, 2012-04)
    The evaluation of reaction energies between solids using density functional theory (DFT) is of practical importance in many technological fields and paramount in the study of the phase stability of known and predicted ...
  • Lee, Chee Kong; Moix, Jeremy; Cao, Jianshu (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2012-05)
    In the study of open quantum systems, the polarontransformation has recently attracted a renewed interest as it offers the possibility to explore the strong system-bath coupling regime. Despite this interest, a clear and ...
  • Zhang, Zhongyang; Berti, Emanuele; Yunes, Nicolas (American Physical Society, 2011-07)
    We study the effect of black hole spin on the accuracy of the post-Newtonian approximation. We focus on the gravitational energy flux for the quasicircular, equatorial, extreme mass-ratio inspiral of a compact object into ...
  • Pavanello, Michele; Van Voorhis, Troy; Visscher, Lucas; Neugebauer, Johannes (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013-02)
    Quantum–mechanical methods that are both computationally fast and accurate are not yet available for electronic excitations having charge transfer character. In this work, we present a significant step forward towards this ...
  • Bajaj, Vikram S.; Caporini, Marc A.; Griffin, Robert Guy; Veshtort, Mikhail; Dobson, Christopher M.; Fitzpatrick, Anthony; MacPhee, Cait E.; Vendruscolo, Michele (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2010-10)
    Amyloid fibrils are structurally ordered aggregates of proteins whose formation is associated with many neurodegenerative and other diseases. For that reason, their high-resolution structures are of considerable interest ...
  • Oskooi, Ardavan F.; Kottke, Chris; Johnson, Steven G. (Optical Society of America, 2009-09)
    Finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) methods suffer from reduced accuracy when discretizing discontinuous materials. We previously showed that accuracy can be significantly improved by using subpixel smoothing of the ...
  • Khan, Rubaina R.; Taher, Tawfiq; Hover, Franz S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-09)
    The objective of the paper is to understand, characterize and enhance the achievable performance of the system of a state-of-the-art marine observation device, the Oceanserver IVER2 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle(AUV), in ...
  • Thiagarajan, Arvind; Ravindranath, Lenin; Balakrishnan, Hari; Madden, Samuel R.; Girod, Lewis D. (USENIX Association, 2011-03)
    CTrack is an energy-efficient system for trajectory mapping using raw position tracks obtained largely from cellular base station fingerprints. Trajectory mapping, which involves taking a sequence of raw position samples ...
  • Bernstein, Aron M. (American Physical Society, 2013-08)
    A precision measurement of the differential cross sections dσ/dΩ and the linearly polarized photon asymmetry Σ≡(dσ[subscript ⊥]-dσ[subscript ∥])/(dσ[subscript ⊥]+dσ[subscript ∥]) for the γ⃗p→π[superscript 0]p reaction in ...
  • Wilson, Justin J.; Lippard, Stephen J. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-09)
    Oxidation of the acetate-bridged half-lantern platinum(II) complex cis-[Pt[superscript II](NH[subscript 3])[subscript 2](μ-OAc)[subscript 2]Pt[superscript II](NH[subscript 3])[subscript 2]](NO[subscript 3])[subscript 2], ...
  • Rodriguez, Alejandro W.; Woolf, David; McCauley, Alexander Patrick; Capasso, Federico; Joannopoulos, John D.; Johnson, Steven G. (American Physical Society, 2010-08)
    We propose a method of achieving large temperature T sensitivity in the Casimir force that involves measuring the stable separation between dielectric objects immersed in a fluid. We study the Casimir force between slabs ...
  • Wysocarski, Jeffrey S.; Sun, Jun; Wang, Mu-Cheng; Jackson, Crystal (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-01)
    In this paper, we investigate the packet transmission delay in a time varying satellite uplink. Specifically, we are interested in bounding the packet transmission delay within the terminal router for uplink traffic in a ...
  • Pong, Christopher Masaru; Lim, Sungyung; Smith, Matthew William; Miller, David W.; Villasenor, Jesus Noel Samonte; Seager, Sara (SPIE, 2010-07)
    ExoplanetSat is a proposed three-unit CubeSat designed to detect down to Earth-sized exoplanets in an orbit out to the habitable zone of Sun-like stars via the transit method. To achieve the required photometric precision ...
  • Giovannetti, Vittorio; Maccone, Lorenzo; Lloyd, Seth (American Physical Society (APS), 2012-01)
    We present a decoding procedure to transmit classical information in a quantum channel which, saturating asymptotically the Holevo bound, achieves the optimal rate of the communication line. In contrast to previous proposals, ...
