behavior, herpetology, and entomology. These include a number of somewhat obscure but important references heretofore relatively unknown to the non-German-speaking world, especially on the mechanisms of insect hearing, including several Ph.D. dissertations. It generally is carefully edited. Like many first editions, the odd typographical or factual error(More)
We have recently developed a wide-field photon-counting detector having high-temporal and high-spatial resolutions and capable of high-throughput (the H33D detector). Its design is based on a 25 mm diameter multi-alkali photocathode producing one photo electron per detected photon, which are then multiplied up to 10 times by a 3-microchannel plate stack.(More)
We have begun developing an innovative ultra-fast single-photon counting imager which comprises a mega-pixel CMOS array and a newly-designed Image Intensifier. It is expected to have single photon sensitivity with 100 psec time resolution, operational at a total counting rate exceeding 1MHz. The readout is based on dead-time-free flash ADC, running at(More)
We study theoretically transitions of a double quantum-dot qubit caused by nonequilibrium charge fluctuations in a nearby quantum point contact (QPC) used as a detector. We show that these transitions are related to the fundamental Heisenberg backaction associated with the measurement, and use the uncertainty principle to derive a lower bound on the(More)
In this position paper, we discuss a neural architecture comprising three major cortical systems: the inferior frontal cortex (including Broca's area), the rostral part of the posterior parietal cortex, and the superior temporal cortex. This network of areas is critical to imitation and to language. What are the functional properties of the network that(More)
We have synthesized high quality type-II CdTe/CdSe near infrared quantum dots using successive ion layer adsorption and reaction chemistry. Transmission electron microscopy reveals that CdTe/CdSe can be synthesized layer by layer yielding quantum dots of narrow size distribution. Excitation and photoluminescence spectra reveal discrete type-II transitions,(More)
Normal development depends on specific genetic and environmental inputs. When environments change, entire populations of organisms may simultaneously express maladaptive phenotypes. Selection in the new environment may gradually restore the ancestral phenotype by favouring alleles that counteract the environmental perturbation. This evolutionary process is(More)
