3 Magnetic stimulation of mammalian peripheral nerves in vivo: An alternative to functional electrical stimulationFunctional electrical stimulation is the current gold standard for stimulating neuronal interfaces for functional neuromuscular and cortical applications, but it is not without its drawbacks. One such fault is the need to have direct electrical contact with the nerve tissue, and any side effect...2014-01-01
4 Non-destructive fault location on aging aircraft wiring networks, Part 2- live wires in flightAging aircraft wiring has been identified as an area of critical national concern. As the system ages, the wires become brittle and crack, break, or develop short circuits.

7 Reliability analysis and performance degradation of a boost converterIn general, power converters are operated in closed-loop systems, and any characteristic variations in one component will simultaneously alter the operating point of other components, resulting in a shift in overall reliability profile. This interdependence makes the reliability of a converter a com...2014-01-01

10 Implantable glass optrodes for deep-tissue light delivery3D needle-type glass waveguide arrays were developed as potentially compact neural interfaces for light delivery in deep-tissue. As much as 90% of input light is transmitted via a single optrode to depths >1mm in tissue. Light emission profiles from the optrode tips into tissue can exhibit beam widt...2014-01-01
11 LEMA: A tool for the formal verification of digitally-intensive analog/mixed-signal circuitsThe increasing integration of analog/mixed-signal (AMS) circuits into system designs has further complicated an already difficult verification problem. Recently, formal verification, which has been successful in the purely digital domain, has made some in-roads in the AMS domain. This paper describe...2014-01-01
12 Scaling the response of nanocrescent antennas into the ultravioletWe investigate the scaling of nanocrescent antennas for applications at UV wavelengths.

20 Neural decoding using a nonlinear generative model for brain-computer interfaceKalman filters have been used to decode neural signals and estimate hand kinematics in many studies.
