  • Homan, Jeroen; Neilsen, Joseph M. G. (IOP Publishing, 2012-04)
    During its 2005 outburst, GRO J1655-40 was observed twice with the Chandra High Energy Transmission Grating Spectrometer; the second observation revealed a spectrum rich with ionized absorption lines from elements ranging ...
  • Hait, Diptarka; Mavros, Michael George; Van Voorhis, Troy (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2017-07)
    The spin-boson model is a simplified Hamiltonian often used to study non-adiabatic dynamics in large condensed phase systems, even though it has not been solved in a fully analytic fashion. Herein, we present an exact ...
  • Zhang, Yu Shrike; Chang, Jae-Byum; Alvarez, Mario Moises; Trujillo de Santiago, Grissel; Aleman, Julio; Batzaya, Byambaa; Krishnadoss, Vaishali; Ramanujam, Aishwarya Aravamudhan; Kazemzadeh-Narbat, Mehdi; Chen, Fei; Tillberg, Paul W.; Dokmeci, Mehmet R.; Boyden, Edward; Khademhosseini, Alireza (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-03)
    To date, much effort has been expended on making high-performance microscopes through better instrumentation. Recently, it was discovered that physical magnification of specimens was possible, through a technique called ...
  • Boriskina, Svetlana V; Weinstein, Lee Adragon; Tong, Jonathan K.; Hsu, Wei-Chun; Chen, Gang (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2016-09)
    Metal nanoantennas supporting localized surface plasmon resonances have become an indispensable tool in bio(chemical) sensing and nanoscale imaging applications. The high plasmon-enhanced electric field intensity in the ...
  • Boriskina, Svetlana V; Tong, Jonathan K.; Hsu, Wei-Chun; Weinstein, Lee Adragon; Huang, Xiaopeng; Loomis III, Robert James; Xu, Yanfei; Chen, Gang (SPIE, 2015-09)
    We report on optical design and applications of hybrid meso-scale devices and materials that combine optical and thermal management functionalities owing to their tailored resonant interaction with light in visible and ...
  • Ahn, Wonmi; Hong, Yan; Reinhard, Björn; Boriskina, Svetlana V; Tong, Jonathan K.; Huang, Yi; Weinstein, Lee Adragon; Hsu, Wei-Chun; Chen, Gang (Optical Society of America, 2015-06)
    We develop hybrid optoplasmonic architectures to tailor resonant energy transfer between trapped photons, plasmons, quantum emitters and elementary heat carriers for emission manipulation, radiative cooling, imaging, and ...
  • Zoran, Amit Shlomo; Buechley, Leah (MIT Press, 2013-02)
    Digital fabrication, and especially 3D printing, is an emerging field that is opening up new possibilities for craft, art and design. The process, however, has important limitations; in particular, digitally designed ...
  • Moix, Jeremy; Cao, Jianshu (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013-10)
    The hierarchical equations of motion technique has found widespread success as a tool to generate the numerically exact dynamics of non-Markovian open quantum systems. However, its application to low temperature environments ...
  • Casalderrey-Solana, Jorge; Pablos, Daniel; Rajagopal, Krishna; Gulhan, Doga Can; Milhano, José Guilherme (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2014-10)
    We propose and explore a new hybrid approach to jet quenching in a strongly coupled medium. The basis of this phenomenological approach is to treat physics processes at different energy scales differently. The high-Q[superscript ...
  • Saini, S.; Hong, Ching-yin; Bernardis, S.; Pfaff, N.; Kimerling, Lionel C.; Michel, Jurgen; Kimerling, Lionel C. (American Institute of Physics, 2009-03)
    A hybrid waveguide based on simultaneous propagation of photonic crystal (PC) and total internal reflection confined optical modes is introduced for a scheme to uniformly pump waveguide optical amplifiers (WOAs). Planar ...
  • Ji, Ni; Flavell, Steven Willem (Elsevier, 2017-04)
    Mapping whole-brain activity during behavior represents one of the biggest and most exciting challenges of systems neuroscience. New research has taken advantage of the unique biology of an ancient organism to bring us a ...
  • Smith, J. David; Meuler, Adam J.; Bralower, Harrison L.; Venkatesan, Rama; Subramanian, Sivakumar; Cohen, Robert E.; McKinley, Gareth H.; Varanasi, Kripa K. (Royal Society of Chemistry, The, 2012-03)
    Clathrate hydrate formation and subsequent plugging of deep-sea oil and gas pipelines represent a significant bottleneck for deep-sea oil and gas operations. Current methods for hydrate mitigation are expensive and energy ...
  • 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 ...
  • Bertrand, Christopher E.; Liu, K.-H.; Mamontov, Eugene; Chen, Sow-Hsin (American Physical Society, 2013-04)
    We have measured the hydration-level dependence of the single-particle dynamics of water confined in the ordered mesoporous silica MCM-41. The dynamic crossover observed at full hydration is absent at monolayer hydration. ...
  • Ilavsky, Jan; Andrews, Ross N; Bumajdad, Ali; Büyüköztürk, Oral; Andrews, Ross N.; Kupwade Patil, Kunal; Chin, Stephanie H. (Springer-Verlag, 2017-10)
    This study investigates the early ages of hydration behavior when basaltic volcanic ash was used as a partial substitute to ordinary Portland cement using ultra-small-angle X-ray scattering and wide-angle X-ray scattering ...
  • Khaykin, S.; Pommereau, J.-P.; Korshunov, L.; Yushkov, V.; Nielsen, J.; Larsen, N.; Christensen, T.; Garnier, A.; Lukyanov, A.; Williams, Earle R. (European Geosciences Union, 2009-03)
    The possible impact of deep convective overshooting over land has been explored by six simultaneous soundings of water vapour, particles and ozone in the lower stratosphere next to Mesoscale Convective Systems (MCSs) during ...
  • Labousse, M.; Bush, John W. M. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013-09)
    When a falling jet of fluid strikes a horizontal fluid layer, a hydraulic jump arises downstream of the point of impact, provided a critical flow rate is exceeded. We here examine a phenomenon that arises below this jump ...
  • Yuk, Hyunwoo; Lin, Shaoting; Ma, Chu; Takaffoli, Mahdi; Fang, Xuanlai; Zhao, Xuanhe (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-02)
    Sea animals such as leptocephali develop tissues and organs composed of active transparent hydrogels to achieve agile motions and natural camouflage in water. Hydrogel-based actuators that can imitate the capabilities of ...

    We present the results of an experimental study of the standing waves produced on the surface of a vertically shaken fluid bath just above the Faraday threshold, when a row of equally spaced pillars protrudes from the ...
  • Heidenreich, Sebastian; Klapp, Sabine H. L.; Bär, Markus; Dunkel, Joern (American Physical Society, 2016-08)
    A universal characteristic of mesoscale turbulence in active suspensions is the emergence of a typical vortex length scale, distinctly different from the scale invariance of turbulent high-Reynolds number flows. Collective ...
