Do firms balance exploration and exploitation in their alliance formation decisions and, if so, why and how? We argue that absorptive capacity and organizational inertia impose conflicting pressures for exploration and exploitation with respect to the value chain function of alliances, the attributes of partners, and partners' network positions.

Metastable events in ADC comparators cause large errors that cannot be tolerated in test and measurement applications that record data over extended time intervals. This work utilizes BiCMOS technology to provide high dynamic range analog to digital conversion at 2.5GS/s with a metastable error rate of less than one error per year and better than 78dB SFDR(More)
We here present a micrometer-scale implementation of fluorescence in situ hybridization that we term μFISH. This μFISH implementation makes use of a non-contact scanning probe technology, namely, a microfluidic probe (MFP) that hydrodynamically shapes nanoliter volumes of liquid on a surface with micrometer resolution. By confining FISH probes at the tip of(More)
DEDICATION I would like to dedicate this to my family and friends. My family has always been very supportive of my academic endeavors, nurturing my love of biology from early childhood to this very day. My grandfather, who passed away on the day that I was accepted into the program, has been with me every step of the way on this bittersweet journey. My(More)
