  • Kosuri, Sriram; Endy, Drew; Kelly, Jason R. (BioMed Central Ltd, 2007-12)
    Background Experimental studies of gene expression have identified some of the individual molecular components and elementary reactions that comprise and control cellular behavior. Given our current understanding of gene ...
  • Li, Haoyuan; Ghodsi, Ali; Shenker, Scott; Stoica, Ion; Zaharia, Matei A. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-11)
    Tachyon is a distributed file system enabling reliable data sharing at memory speed across cluster computing frameworks. While caching today improves read workloads, writes are either network or disk bound, as replication ...
  • Mazzini, Francesco; Kettler, Daniel; Dubowsky, Steven; Guerrero, Julio Cesar (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-12)
    World oil demand and advanced oil recovery techniques have made it economically attractive to rehabilitate previously abandoned oil wells. This requires relatively fast mapping of the shape and location of the down-hole ...
  • Greenwald, Scott Wilkins; Khan, Mina; Vazquez Machado, Christian David; Maes, Patricia (International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS), 2015-10)
    Questions often arise spontaneously in a curious mind, due to an observation about a new or unknown environment. When an expert is right there, prepared to engage in dialog, this curiosity can be harnessed and converted ...
  • Allcott, Hunt; Taubinsky, Dmitry; Knittel, Christopher Roland (American Economic Association, 2015-05)
    A corrective tax or subsidy is "well-targeted" if it primarily affects choices that are more distorted by market failures. Energy efficiency subsidies are designed to correct multiple distortions: externalities, credit ...
  • Benavides Palos, Xavier; Amores Fernandez, Judith; Maes, Patricia (Association for Computing Machinery, 2014-04)
    In this paper we present an end-user toolkit for easy creation of responsive objects and environments. TagMe consists of a wearable device that recognizes the object or surface the user is touching. The user can make ...
  • Shin, Heedeuk; Qiu, Wenjun; Jarecki, Robert; Cox, Jonathan A.; Olsson, Roy H.; Starbuck, Andrew; Wang, Zheng; Rakich, Peter T. (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-06)
    Nanoscale modal confinement is known to radically enhance the effect of intrinsic Kerr and Raman nonlinearities within nanophotonic silicon waveguides. By contrast, stimulated Brillouin-scattering nonlinearities, which ...
  • Pamplona, Vitor F.; Oliveira, Manuel M.; Aliaga, Daniel G.; Raskar, Ramesh (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012-07)
    We introduce tailored displays that enhance visual acuity by decomposing virtual objects and placing the resulting anisotropic pieces into the subject's focal range. The goal is to free the viewer from needing wearable ...
  • Soljacic, Marin; Karalis, Aristeidis; Joannopoulos, John D. (Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2009-02)
    A new physical mechanism enabling simultaneous cancellation of group-velocity and attenuation dispersion to extremely high orders for subwavelength light of any small positive, negative or zero value of the group velocity ...
  • Krueger, Andrew T.; Kroll, Carsten; Sanchez, Edgar; Griffith, Linda G.; Imperiali, Barbara (Wiley Blackwell, 2014-01)
    Described is the development and application of a versatile semisynthetic strategy, based on a combination of sortase-mediated coupling and tetrazine ligation chemistry, which can be exploited for the efficient incorporation ...
  • Bermel, Peter; Ilic, Ognjen; Chen, Gang; Joannopoulos, John; Celanovic, Ivan L.; Soljacic, Marin (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-01)
    In solar cells, the mismatch between the Sun's emission spectrum and the cells’ absorption profile limits the efficiency of such devices, while in incandescent light bulbs, most of the energy is lost as heat. One way to ...
  • Bermel, Peter A.; Ghebrebrhan, Michael; Harradon, Michael R.; Yeng, YiXiang; Celanovic, Ivan; Joannopoulos, John D.; Soljacic, Marin (Springer, 2011-10)
    Selective solar absorbers generally have limited effectiveness in unconcentrated sunlight, because of reradiation losses over a broad range of wavelengths and angles. However, metamaterials offer the potential to limit ...
  • Chen, Hongsheng; Rivera, Nicholas H.; Lopez, Josue Jacob; Kaminer, Ido Efraim; Lin, Xiao; Soljacic, Marin (IOP Publishing, 2016-10)
    The ability to tailor the energy distribution of plasmons at the nanoscale has many applications in nanophotonics, such as designing plasmon lasers, spasers, and quantum emitters. To this end, we analytically study the ...
  • Liao, Quanwen; Liu, Wei; Zeng, Lingping; Liu, Zhichun (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-10)
    Tailoring the thermal conductivity of polymers is central to enlarge their applications in the thermal management of flexible integrated circuits. Progress has been made over the past decade by fabricating materials with ...
  • Ghebrebrhan, Michael; Bermel, Peter A.; Yeng, YiXiang; Celanovic, Ivan; Soljacic, Marin; Joannopoulos, John D. (American Physical Society, 2011-03)
    We develop a model for predicting the thermal emission spectrum of a two-dimensional metallic photonic crystal for arbitrary angles based on coupled-mode theory. Calculating the appropriate coupled-mode parameters over a ...
  • Singh, Awaneesh; Kuksenok, Olga; Balazs, Anna C.; Johnson, Jeremiah A. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-04)
    Using dissipative particle dynamics (DPD), we developed a computational approach to capture the photo-controlled radical polymerization (“photo-growth”) of polymer gels containing trithiocarbonate (TTC) groups within the ...
  • Rinard, Martin C.; Ganesh, Vijay; Leek, Tim (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-06)
    We present a new automated white box fuzzing technique and a tool, BuzzFuzz, that implements this technique. Unlike standard fuzzing techniques, which randomly change parts of the input file with little or no information ...
  • Hare, Caspar (Oxford University Press, 2010-01)
    Sometimes I lack all-things-considered preferences between items. Sometimes this attitude is insensitive to mild sweetening. There are items A, A+, B, B+, such that, all things considered, I have no preference between A ...
  • Czaika, Ellen Gail; Selin, Noelle E (Wiley Blackwell, 2016-07)
    We use a role-play simulation to examine how using quantitative models influences the process and outcome of sustainability negotiations. Our experimental approach involved 74 teams of five parties negotiating the details ...
