      Energy storage devices that provide high specific power without compromising on specific energy are highly desirable for many electric-powered applications. Here, we demonstrate that polymer organic radical gel materials ...
    • Cellular and Extracellular Matrix Basis for Heterogeneity in Mitral Annular Contraction 

      Stephens, Elizabeth H.; Fahrenholtz, Monica M.; Connell, Patrick S.; Timek, Tomasz A.; Daughters, George T.; Kuo, Joyce J.; Patton, Aaron M.; Ingels, Neil B. Jr.; Miller, D. Craig; Grande-Allen, K. Jane (2015)
      Regional heterogeneity in mitral annular contraction, which is generally ascribed to the fibrous vs. muscular annular composition, ensures proper leaflet motion and timing of coaptation. It is unknown whether the fibroblast-like ...
    • Challenges in Computer Architecture Evaluation 

      Skadron, Kevin; Martonosi, Margaret; August, David; Hill, Mark; Lilja, David; Pai, Vijay S. (2003-08-20)
      A report to the US National Science Foundation argues that simulation and benchmarking technology will require a leap in capability within the next few years to maintain ongoing innovation in computer systems.
    • Channel equalization algorithms for MIMO downlink and ASIP architectures 

      Radosavljevic, Predrag (2004)
      Processors for mobile handsets in 3G cellular systems require: high speed, flexibility and low power dissipation. While computationally efficient, ASIC processors are often not flexible enough to support necessary variations ...
