  • Hu, Qing; Kumar, Sushil; Lee, Alan; Qin, Qi; Reno, John L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-04)
    We demonstrate a tunable terahertz quantum cascade laser using an abutted silicon lens and grating feedback. The device tunes discontinuously over 160 GHz with a center frequency of 4.4 THz.
  • Chen, Sidi; Spletter, Maria; Ni, Xiaochun; White, Kevin P.; Luo, Liqun; Long, Manyuan (Elsevier, 2012-02)
    The evolution of the brain and behavior are coupled puzzles. The genetic bases for brain evolution are widely debated, yet whether newly evolved genes impact the evolution of the brain and behavior is vaguely understood. ...
  • Lin, Michael F.; Jungreis, Irwin; Kellis, Manolis; Sabeti, Pardis C; Sealfon, Rachel S.; Wolf, Maxim Y. (BioMed Central, 2015-02)
    Background The increasing availability of sequence data for many viruses provides power to detect regions under unusual evolutionary constraint at a high resolution. One approach leverages the synonymous substitution rate ...
  • Bush, John W. M. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-04)
    A cold event at around 8200 calendar years BP and the release, at around that time, of a huge freshwater outburst from ice-dammed glacial Lake Agassiz have lent support to the idea that the flood triggered the cold event. ...
  • Ferreira, David; Marshall, John C (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2015-05)
    Conservation of water demands that meridional ocean and atmosphere freshwater transports (FWT) are of equal magnitude but opposite in direction. This suggests that the atmospheric FWT and its associated latent heat (LH) ...
  • Imperiali, Barbara; Socher, Elke Ricarda (Wiley Blackwell, 2012-12)
    The FRET-Capture approach exploits a bound solvatochromic fluorophore, 4-N,N-dimethylamino-1,8-naphthalimide, as a FRET donor in both inter- and intramolecular energy transfer. A unique feature of this method is the ...
  • Morton, Stephen Winford; Zhao, Xiaoyong; Quadir, Mohiuddin Abdul; Hammond, Paula T (Elsevier, 2014-01)
    Translation of micelles from the laboratory to the clinic is limited by a poor understanding of their in vivo fate following administration. In this paper, we establish a robust approach to real-time monitoring of the in ...
  • Alabi, Christopher A.; Love, Kevin T.; Sahay, Gaurav; Stutzman, Tina M.; Young, Whitney T.; Langer, Robert; Anderson, Daniel Griffith (American Chemical Society, 2012-06)
    The assembly, stability, and timely disassembly of short interfering RNA (siRNA) nanocomplexes have the potential to affect the efficiency of siRNA delivery and gene silencing. As such, the design of new probes that can ...
  • Benthuysen, Jessica; Thomas, Leif N. (American Meteorological Society, 2012-09)
    Although atmospheric forcing by wind stress or buoyancy flux is known to change the ocean’s potential vorticity (PV) at the surface, less is understood about PV modification in the bottom boundary layer. The adjustment of ...
  • Kim, Dallwoo; Ito, Akemi; Ishikawa, Yasuhiro; Osawa, Katsuyuki; Iwasaki, Yoshiyuki (Elsevier, 2013-06)
    The use of iron pistons is increasing due to the higher power requirements of diesel truck engines. Expansion of the iron piston is a common concern. The purpose of this study is to clarify the lubrication conditions of ...
  • Kallis, Giorgos; Kalush, Michael; O.'Flynn, Hugh; Rossiter, Jack; Ashford, Nicholas A. (MDPI AG, 2013-04)
    This article explores the pros and cons for reducing working hours in Europe. To arrive to an informed judgment we review critically the theoretical and empirical literature, mostly from economics, concerning the relation ...
  • Veprek, S.; Argon, Ali Suphi; Zhang, R. F. (American Physical Society, 2009-01)
    To obtain a deeper understanding of the mechanism of plastic deformation and failure in superhard nanocomposites and heterostructures we studied, by means of the ab initio density functional theory, the stress-strain ...
  • Staiano, Jacopo; Pianesi, Fabio; Lepri, Bruno; Sebe, Nicu; Aharony, Nadav; Pentland, Alex Paul (Association for Computing Machinery, 2012-09)
    In this work, we investigate the relationships between social network structure and personality; we assess the performances of different subsets of structural network features, and in particular those concerned with ...
  • Lin, Shaoting; Cohen, Tal; Zhang, Teng; Yuk, Hyunwoo; Abeyaratne, Rohan; Zhao, Xuanhe (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-10)
    Soft elastic layers with top and bottom surfaces adhered to rigid bodies are abundant in biological organisms and engineering applications. As the rigid bodies are pulled apart, the stressed layer can exhibit various modes ...
  • Gorin, Vadim (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2014-06)
    The aim of this note is to prove that fluctuations of uniformly random alternating sign matrices (equivalently, configurations of the 6-vertex model with domain wall boundary conditions) near the boundary are described by ...
  • Roquet, Paul Christopher (Sage Publications, 2016-10)
    When cities are covered over with layers of augmented reality, what shadows are cast by this new ability to see? The Japanese anime series Dennō Coil explores exactly this question, following a group of children living in ...
  • Asadnia, Mohsen; Kottapalli, Ajay Giri Prakash; Karavitaki, K. Domenica; Warkiani, Majid Ebrahimi; Miao, Jianmin; Corey, David P.; Triantafyllou, Michael S (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-09)
    We report the development of a new class of miniature all-polymer flow sensors that closely mimic the intricate morphology of the mechanosensory ciliary bundles in biological hair cells. An artificial ciliary bundle is ...
  • Krauss, Lawrence M.; Wilczek, Frank (World Scientific Publishing, 2014-06)
    It is commonly anticipated that gravity is subjected to the standard principles of quantum mechanics. Yet some — including Einstein — have questioned that presumption, whose empirical basis is weak. Indeed, recently Dyson ...
  • Piore, Michael J. (Oxford University Press, 2010-01)
    Amitai Etzioni’s short statement opens a very wide range of issues that I think cannot be adequately addressed in a panel of this kind. But it seems to me that the main question posed in the context of the Annual Meetings ...
  • Hemann, Michael (American Association for Cancer Research, 2014-05)
    DNA repair deficiencies are common among cancer cells and represent a potential vulnerability that might be exploited by targeting compensatory repair pathways. However, the identification of synthetically lethal combinations ...
