• Fully Integrated CMOS-Compatible Photodetector with Intrinsic Gain and Red-Green-Blue Color Selectivity ﻿

(2014-04-21)
Currently, image sensors are hybrid devices, combining semiconductor photodiodes with off-chip color filters of different materials to convert wavelength-selected light into useful photocurrent. Here we demonstrate a fully ...
• Fully integrated single-walled carbon nanotube thermoplastic composites ﻿

(2004)
The development of composites of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) with thermoplastics requires methods for good dispersion and achieving good interaction between SWNTs and the matrix. This thesis presents a new method ...
• Fully transitive polyhedra with crystallographic symmetry groups ﻿

(1990)
This dissertation sets forth a method for classifying, up to euclidean similarity, fully-transitive polyhedra which have crystallographic symmetry groups. Branko Grunbaum's definition of polyhedron is used, in which the ...
• Function Shipping in a Scalable Parallel Programming Model ﻿

(2012)
Increasingly, a large number of scientific and technical applications exhibit dynamically generated parallelism or irregular data access patterns. These applications pose significant challenges to achieving scalable ...
• Functional and structural studies of influenza B virus hemagglutinin ﻿

(2013-09-16)
Influenza A and B viruses are major causes of seasonal flu epidemics each year. Hemagglutinin (HA) mediates the binding of virus to host cell and the fusion with host membrane. The crystal of HA in complex with antibody ...
• Functional and Structural Studies of Respiratory Syncytial Virus Fusion (RSV F) Protein and Neutralizing Antibody ﻿

(2018-04-18)
Human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a leading cause of lower respiratory tract infections in newborns, young children, and the elderly; causing significant morbidity and mortality each year. Unfortunately, there is ...
• Functional and structural studies of the Influenza A virus polymerase subunit PB1 and its complex with the PA subunit ﻿

(2007)
The influenza virus RNA polymerase is a heterotrimeric complex of PA, PB1, and PB2. PB1 functions in RNA elongation, 5' and 3' viral RNA binding, and has an endonuclease activity. For detailed biochemical and structural ...
• Functional connections between motion detectors in the optic nerve and connective of the crayfish ﻿

(1980)
Results are reported here from experiments in which single unit neural activity was recorded simultaneously from the optic nerve and connective of the crayfish Procombarus clarkli to study functional connections between ...
• Functional Data Analysis on Spectroscopic Data ﻿

(2016-01-28)
Cervical cancer is a very common type of cancer that is highly curable if treated early. We are investigating spectroscopic devices that make in-vivo cervical tissue measurements to detect pre-cancerous and cancerous ...
• Functional data classification and covariance estimation ﻿

(2009)
Focusing on the analysis of functional data, the first part of this dissertation proposes three statistical models for functional data classification and applies them to a real problem of cervical pre-cancer diagnosis; the ...
• Functional divergence and natural selection underlying genome wide introgressive hybridization of protein coding genes between the Algerian mouse (Mus spretus) and the house mouse (Mus musculus domesticus) ﻿

(2019-03-15)
Genome wide introgression was recently reported between two mice species in Europe, Mus musculus domesticus (West European house mouse) and Mus spretus (the Algerian mouse). Introgression was found outside the area of ...
• Functional German grammar: A pedagogical application of Fleming's "Communication Analysis" (Ilah Fleming) ﻿

(1995)
In her Communication Analysis (1988) Ilah Fleming developed a model of language analysis that treats all strata of language as a network of interplay. Through the application of her philosophy and methodology to language ...
• Functional inference of conductances in the LGMD neuron ﻿

(2013-08-27)
This thesis develops an approach to determine spatially-varying ionic channel conductances throughout the dendrites of the LGMD neuron from distal transmembrane potential recordings in response to distributed subthreshold ...
• Functional representation and manipulation of shapes with applications in surface and solid modeling ﻿

(2013-09-16)
Real-valued functions have wide applications in various areas within computer graphics. In this work, we examine three representation of shapes using functions. In particular, we study the classical B-spline representation ...
• Functional tissue engineering of the temporomandibular joint disc ﻿

(2008)
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders arise from disease or trauma and may result in degeneration of the soft tissues. Tissue engineering may provide a solution to disorders of the TMJ without the side effects seen with ...
• Functionalization of Carbon Materials with Metals ﻿

(2017-04-11)
The functionalization of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with metals has been shown to produce materials with interesting and useful properties which are different from the isolated constituents. Although metal atoms and particles ...
