1 (BAl12)Cs: a cluster-assembled solidFirst-principles calculations on the geometry and stability of AlnBm clusters have been carried out to examine the effect of size, composition, and electronic-shell filling on their relative stability. It is shown that although Al and B are both trivalent, a BAl12 cluster is more stable than an Al1...First-principles calculations; (BAl12)Cs; Cluster-assembled; AlnBm clusters1997-06
2 100 electrode intracortical array: structural variabilityA technique has been developed for fabricating three dimensional "hair brush" electrode arrays from monocrystalline silicon blocks.

3 13 crazy, notorious things to do in an EM classThe average attention span of an adult human is 12-20 minutes. Our lectures are 50-80 minutes. Attention Span Math reminds us to take a break now and then, and to bring the class back to life by bringing some life to the class. Many students learn things better if they can see and touch them, so thi...Attention span; Fun2005-06
4 13C NMR analysis of soot produced from model compounds and a coalSoot samples, including the associated organics, produced from an Illinois No. 6 coal (five samples) and two model compounds, biphenyl (three samples) and pyrene (two samples), have been studied by 13C NMR methods.

6 2-D scene analysis using split-level relaxationWe present a new method for applying multiple semantic constraints based on discrete relaxation. A separate graph is maintained for each constraint relation and used in parallel to achieve a consistent labeling. This permits both local and global analysis without recourse to complete graphs. Here l...Discrete relaxation; Split-level relaxation1985

9 3D ray-tracing for intra-vehicle environmentsIn order to develop a wireless communication system that could be used for all types of aircraft sensor networks, the severe multipath channel found inside aircrafts must be well defined. This multipath channel is much more complex than usual outdoor/indoor channels and thus far, research has been l...2009

14 A DRAM backend for the impulse memory systemThe Impulse Adaptable Memory System exposes DRAM access patterns not seen in conventional memory systems. For instance, it can generate 32 DRAM accesses each of which requests a four-byte word in 32 cycles. Conventional DRAM backends are optimized for accesses that request full cache lines. They m...Impulse Adaptable Memory System; DRAM1998-12-16
