From Digital to Physical: Computational Aspects of 3D Manufacturing
The desktop publishing revolution of the 1980s is currently repeating itself in 3D, referred to as desktop manufacturing. Online services such as Shapeways have become available, making personalized manufacturing on cutting ...
Control of spin dynamics for applications in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
Sophisticated electromagnetic pulse sequences that control spin dynamics have been developed in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) over the last few decades. However, due to more and more demanding criteria, such as unknown ...
Particle Focusing in Microchannels
The ability to control the motion of particles and cells in microchannels has been a center of fascination since the advent of microfluidics. Entire fields have been created in order to accomplish separation, volume reduction ...
Toward a Hardware Accelerated Future
Hardware accelerators provide a rare opportunity to achieve orders-of-magnitude performance and power improvements with customized circuit designs.
Rich Linguistic Structure from Large-Scale Web Data
The past two decades have shown an unexpected effectiveness of Web-scale data in natural language processing. Even the simplest models, when paired with unprecedented amounts of unstructured and unlabeled Web data, have ...
Directional Optical Antennas, Wafer-Scale Metasurfaces, and Single Molecule Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering
Within the field of optics, one of the topics being currently investigated with considerable interest is that of plasmonics, which refers to the use of surface plasmons on metallic nanostructures to manipulate light. It ...
Improved Thin Film Solar Cells Made by Vapor Deposition of Earth-Abundant Tin(II) Sulfide
Tin(II) sulfide (SnS) is an earth-abundant, inexpensive, and non-toxic absorber material for thin film solar cells. SnS films are deposited by atomic layer deposition (ALD) through the reaction of a tin precursor, ...
The Role of Microenvironmental Cues in Cardiomyogenesis and Pathogenesis
The cellular microenvironment consists of soluble and insoluble factors that provide signals that dictate cell behavior and cell fate. Limited characterization has hindered our ability to mimic the physiological or ...
Ultra-thin solid oxide fuel cells: materials and devices
Solid oxide fuel cells are electrochemical energy conversion devices utilizing solid electrolytes transporting O2- that typically operate in the 800 - 1000 °C temperature range due to the large activation barrier for ionic ...
Inter- and Intracellular Effects of Traumatic Axonal Injury
Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (mTBIs) are non-penetrating brain injuries that do not result in gross pathological lesions, yet they may cause a spectrum of cognitive and behavioral deficits. mTBI has been placed in the ...
