The ability to continue increasing processor frequency and single thread performance is being severely limited by exponential increases in leakage and active power. To continue to improve system performance, future designs will rely on increasing numbers of smaller, more power efficient cores and special purpose accelerators integrated on a chip. In this(More)
Covalent attachment of glycosylphosphatidylinositols (GPIs) to the protein C-terminus is one of the most common posttranslational modifications in eukaryotic cells. In addition to anchoring surface proteins to the cell membrane, GPIs also have many other important biological functions, determined by their unique structure and property. This account has(More)
Volatile arsenic compounds in natural gas, existing in the form of trimethylarsine (TMAs), have been determined using gas cryo-trapping gas chromatography coupled to inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (CT-GC-ICP-MS). The results from a number of different gas wells revealed a huge concentration spread ranging from below the detection limit of 0.2(More)
The use of hybrid orientation technology (HOT) with direct silicon bond (DSB) wafers consisting of a (110) crystal orientation layer bonded to a bulk (100) handle wafer provides promising opportunities for easier migration of bulk CMOS designs to higher performance materials. In this work, the integration of shallow-trench-isolation (STI) after(More)
Nanoscience deals with the characterization and manipulation of matter on the atomic/molecular size scale in order to deepen our understanding of condensed matter and develop revolutionary technology. Meeting the demands of the rapidly advancing nanotechnological frontier requires novel, multifunctional nanoscale materials. Among the most promising(More)
