  • Abanin, D. A.; Morozov, S. V.; Ponomarenko, L. A.; Gorbachev, R. V.; Mayorov, A. S.; Katsnelson, M. I.; Watanabe, K.; Taniguchi, T.; Novoselov, K. S.; Geim, A. K.; Levitov, Leonid (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2011-04)
    Transport measurements have been a powerful tool for discovering electronic phenomena in graphene. We report nonlocal measurements performed in the Hall bar geometry with voltage probes far away from the classical path of ...
  • Alexander-Katz, Alfredo; Sing, Charles E. (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-11)
    Self-associating polymers are ubiquitous in synthetic and biological systems. Here, we use a combination of simulation and theory to show that these polymers exhibit a counterintuitive strong nonmonotonic stretching response ...
  • Fei, Ruixiang; Yang, Li; Li, Wenbin; Li, Ju (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2015-10)
    We predict enormous, anisotropic piezoelectric effects in intrinsic monolayer group IV monochalcogenides (MX, M=Sn or Ge, X=Se or S), including SnSe, SnS, GeSe, and GeS. Using first-principle simulations based on the modern ...
  • Levitov, Leonid; Abanin, Dmitry A.; Gorbachev, R. V.; Novoselov, Kostya S.; Geim, A. K. (American Physical Society, 2011-04)
    We propose a new approach to generate and detect spin currents in graphene, based on a large spin-Hall response arising near the neutrality point in the presence of an external magnetic field. Spin currents result from the ...
  • Fahlbruch, Babette; Carroll, John Stephen (Elsevier, 2010-07)
    This special issue presents papers from a workshop conducted by New Technologies and Work (NeTWork) to honor the memory of Bernhard Wilpert, the founder and organiser of NeTWork. The papers reflect the theme that undesirable ...
  • Wang, Han; Hsu, Allen Long; Kim, Ki Kang; Kong, Jing; Palacios, Tomas (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-12)
    Ambipolar transport in graphene offers great opportunities for novel device and circuit applications. This paper discusses the RF performance of CVD grown graphene transistors for the first time. Then, a new graphene ...
  • Mermel, Craig H.; Schumacher, Steven E.; Hill, Barbara; Meyerson, Matthew L.; Beroukhim, Rameen; Getz, Gad (BioMed Central Ltd., 2011-04)
    We describe methods with enhanced power and specificity to identify genes targeted by somatic copy-number alterations (SCNAs) that drive cancer growth. By separating SCNA profiles into underlying arm-level and focal ...
  • Banerjee, Abhijit; Duflo, Esther (American Economic Association, 2010-06)
    This paper shows how the productive interplay of theory and experimental work has furthered our understanding of credit markets in developing countries. Descriptive facts motivated a body of theory, which in turned ...
  • Muentener, Paul Jason; Friel, Daniel; Schulz, Laura E. (Public Library of Science, 2012-08)
    Adults recognize that if event A predicts event B, intervening on A might generate B. Research suggests that young children have difficulty making this inference unless the events are initiated by goal-directed actions. ...
  • Birch, Leah; Tziperman, Eli; Cronin, Timothy Wallace (American Meteorological Society, 2017-05)
    Geologic evidence suggests that the last glacial inception (115 kya) occurred within the mountains of Baffin Island. Global climate models (GCMs) have difficulty simulating this climate transition, likely because of their ...
  • Burke, Andrea; Stewart, Andrew L.; Adkins, Jess F.; Jansen, Malte F.; Thompson, Andrew F.; Ferrari, Raffaele (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2015-07)
    Published reconstructions of radiocarbon in the Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean indicate that there is a mid-depth maximum in radiocarbon age during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM). This is in contrast to the modern ...
  • Hu, S.; Fedorov, A.; Murray, R. W.; deMenocal, P. B.; Williams, Ross Hamilton; McGee, William David; Kinsley, Christopher William; Ridley, David Andrew; Tal, Irit (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2016-11)
    Saharan mineral dust exported over the tropical North Atlantic is thought to have significant impacts on regional climate and ecosystems, but limited data exist documenting past changes in long-range dust transport. This ...
  • Waterhouse, Robert M. (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-09)
    Previous studies have reported that chromosome synteny in Lepidoptera has been well conserved, yet the number of haploid chromosomes varies widely from 5 to 223. Here we report the genome (393 Mb) of the Glanville fritillary ...
  • Baumer, Richard E.; Demkowicz, Michael J. (American Physical Society, 2013-04)
    We use molecular dynamics simulations to show that glass transition in a model phase separating amorphous alloy, Cu50Nb50, occurs by gelation. At the glass transition, a mechanically stiff, percolating network of atoms ...
  • Adams, Allan; Anous, Tarek; Lee, Jaehoon; Yaida, Sho (American Physical Society, 2015-03)
    Glass-forming liquids exhibit a dramatic dynamical slowdown as the temperature is lowered. This can be attributed to relaxation proceeding via large structural rearrangements whose characteristic size increases as the ...
  • Reygers, Klaus; Sanders, Stephen J.; Steinberg, Peter; Miller, Michael L. (Annual Reviews, 2007-05)
    We review the theoretical background, experimental techniques, and phenomenology of what is known in relativistic heavy ion physics as the Glauber model, which is used to calculate geometric quantities. A brief history of ...
  • Chen, Tiffany Yu-Han; Ravindranath, Lenin; Bahl, Paramvir; Deng, Shuo; Balakrishnan, Hari (Association for Computing Machinery, 2015-11)
    Glimpse is a continuous, real-time object recognition system for camera-equipped mobile devices. Glimpse captures full-motion video, locates objects of interest, recognizes and labels them, and tracks them from frame to ...
  • Liu, Adrian Chi-Yan; Pritchard, Jonathan R.; Tegmark, Max Erik; Loeb, Abraham (American Physical Society, 2013-02)
    The global (i.e., spatially averaged) spectrum of the redshifted 21 cm line has generated much experimental interest lately, thanks to its potential to be a direct probe of the epoch of reionization and the dark ages, ...
  • Andoni, Alexandr; Daskalakis, Constantinos; Hassidim, Avinatan; Roch, Sebastien (Institute for Theoretical Computer Science (ITCS), 2010)
    Molecular phylogenetic techniques do not generally account for such common evolutionary events as site insertions and deletions (known as indels). Instead tree building algorithms and ancestral state inference procedures ...

    MicroRNA (miRNA) regulation clearly impacts animal development, but the extent to which development—with its resulting diversity of cellular contexts—impacts miRNA regulation is unclear. Here, we compared cohorts of genes ...
