  • Bush, John W. M. (Annual Reviews, 2015-01)
    Yves Couder, Emmanuel Fort, and coworkers recently discovered that a millimetric droplet sustained on the surface of a vibrating fluid bath may self-propel through a resonant interaction with its own wave field. This article ...
  • Braakman, Rogier; Smith, Eric (Public Library of Science, 2014-2)
  • Song, Gang; Tin, Chung; Poon, Chi-Sang (Springer-Verlag, 2014-12)
    Current cellular-based connectomics approaches aim to delineate the functional or structural organizations of mammalian brain circuits through neuronal activity mapping and/or axonal tracing. To discern possible connectivity ...
  • Malka, Roy; Manalis, Scott R.; Higgins, John M.; Feijo Delgado, Francisco Feijo (Public Library of Science, 2014-10)
    Human red blood cells (RBCs) lose ~30% of their volume and ~20% of their hemoglobin (Hb) content during their ~100-day lifespan in the bloodstream. These observations are well-documented, but the mechanisms for these volume ...
  • Burchianti, A.; Valtolina, G.; Seman, J. A.; De Pas, M.; Inguscio, M.; Zaccanti, M.; Roati, G.; Pace, Emilio A. (American Physical Society, 2014-10)
    We use a gray molasses operating on the D[subscript 1] atomic transition to produce degenerate quantum gases of [superscript 6]Li with a large number of atoms. This sub-Doppler cooling phase allows us to lower the initial ...
  • Wuethrich, Irene; Peeters, Janneke G. C.; Blom, Annet E. M.; Theile, Christopher S.; Li, Zeyang; Spooner, Eric; Ploegh, Hidde; Guimaraes, Carla P. (Public Library of Science, 2014-10)
    Aerolysin is a secreted bacterial toxin that perforates the plasma membrane of a target cell with lethal consequences. Previously explored native and epitope-tagged forms of the toxin do not allow site-specific modification ...
  • Capogrosso-Sansone, B.; Kuklov, A.; Safavi-Naini, Arghavan (American Physical Society, 2014-10)
    Hard-core dipolar bosons trapped in a parallel stack of N ≥ 2 one-dimensional optical lattices (tubes) can develop several phases made of composites of particles from different tubes: superfluids, supercounterfluids, and ...
  • Rosenberg, Danna; Stelmakh, Veronika; Grein, Matthew E.; Bennink, Ryan S.; Dauler, Eric A.; Kerman, Andrew J.; Molnar, Richard J.; Wong, Franco N. C.; Dixon, P. Benjamin (American Physical Society, 2014-10)
    We report on a systematic experimental study of the heralding efficiency and generation rate of telecom-band infrared photon pairs generated by spontaneous parametric down-conversion and coupled to single-mode optical ...
  • Sinha, Pawan; Kjelgaard, Margaret McCaughin; Gandhi, Tapan Kumar; Tsourides, Kleovoulos; Cardinaux, Annie; Pantazis, Dimitrios; Diamond, Sidney; Held, Richard M. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2014-10)
    A rich collection of empirical findings accumulated over the past three decades attests to the diversity of traits that constitute the autism phenotypes. It is unclear whether subsets of these traits share any underlying ...
  • Knap, M.; Gopalakrishnan, S.; Yao, N. Y.; Laumann, C. R.; Abanin, D. A.; Lukin, M. D.; Demler, E. A.; Serbyn, Maksym; Papic, Z. (American Physical Society, 2014-10)
    We propose a method for detecting many-body localization (MBL) in disordered spin systems. The method involves pulsed coherent spin manipulations that probe the dephasing of a given spin due to its entanglement with a set ...
  • Chindelevitch, Leonid; Trigg, Jason; Regev, Aviv; Berger, Bonnie (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-10)
    Constraint-based models are currently the only methodology that allows the study of metabolism at the whole-genome scale. Flux balance analysis is commonly used to analyse constraint-based models. Curiously, the results ...
  • Wang, Zhe; Fratini, Emiliano; Li, Mingda; Le, Peisi; Mamontov, Eugene; Baglioni, Piero; Chen, Sow-Hsin (American Physical Society, 2014-10)
    The characteristic relaxation time τ of protein hydration water exhibits a strong hydration level h dependence. The dynamic crossover is observed when h is higher than the monolayer hydration level h[subscript c] =0.2–0.25 ...
  • Barrett, M. F.; Werpy, N. M.; McIlwraith, C. W.; Frisbie, D. D.; Grodzinsky, Alan J.; Hung, Han-Hwa K.; Frank, Eliot; Miller, Rachel Elizabeth (Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Inc, 2014-10)
    Background: The goal of this study was to test the ability of an injectable self-assembling peptide (KLD) hydrogel, with or without microfracture, to augment articular cartilage defect repair in an equine cartilage defect ...
  • Moshkovitz, Dana (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-10)
    The Parallel Repetition Theorem upper-bounds the value of a repeated (tensored) two prover game in terms of the value of the base game and the number of repetitions. In this work we give a simple transformation on games – ...
  • Larkoski, Andrew James (American Physical Society, 2014-10)
    In this note, I show that the recently proposed subleading soft factor in massless gauge theory uniquely follows from conformal symmetry of tree-level gauge theory amplitudes in four dimensions.
  • Ruppin, F.; Strigari, L.; Billard, Julien; Figueroa-Feliciano, Enectali (American Physical Society, 2014-10)
    Direct detection dark matter experiments looking for WIMP-nucleus elastic scattering will soon be sensitive to an irreducible background from neutrinos which will drastically affect their discovery potential. Here we explore ...
  • Molvig, Kim; Vold, Erik L.; Dodd, Evan S.; Wilks, Scott C. (American Physical Society, 2014-10)
    This Letter describes the theoretical structure of the plasma diffusion layer that develops from an initially sharp gas-metal interface. The layer dynamics under isothermal and isobaric conditions is considered so that ...
  • Zang, Jianfeng; Cao, Changyong; Feng, Yaying; Liu, Jie; Zhao, Xuanhe (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-10)
    Fabrication of unconventional energy storage devices with high stretchability and performance is challenging, but critical to practical operations of fully power-independent stretchable electronics. While supercapacitors ...
  • Lupo, Cosmo; Lloyd, Seth (American Physical Society, 2014-10)
    Quantum data locking is a protocol that allows for a small secret key to (un)lock an exponentially larger amount of information, hence yielding the strongest violation of the classical one-time pad encryption in the quantum ...
  • Gong, Zheng; Tran, Duong; Yi, Dong Hoon; Wu, Fan; Zorn, Alexander; Ratilal, Purnima; Jain, Ankita Deepak; Makris, Nicholas (Public Library of Science, 2014-10)
    We show that humpback-whale vocalization behavior is synchronous with peak annual Atlantic herring spawning processes in the Gulf of Maine. With a passive, wide-aperture, densely-sampled, coherent hydrophone array towed ...
