In this work, we propose a control protocol for lightpath management in the optical layer of all-optical networks (AONs). AONs follow a layered structure, as used by various network standards, where each layer communicates with its peer through Protocol Data Units (PDUs). In the context of Open System Interconnection (OSI) Reference Model (RM), a new layer,(More)
Design of an efficient new catalyst that can mimic the enzymatic pathway for catalytic dehydrogenation of liquid fuels like alcohols is described in this report. The catalyst is a nickel(II) complex of 2,6-bis(phenylazo)pyridine ligand (L), which possesses the above requisite with excellent catalytic efficiencies for controlled dehydrogenation of alcohols(More)
We present a novel approach to 2D and 3D human pose estimation in monocular images by building on and improving recent advances in this field. We take the full body pose as a combination of a 3D pose and a viewpoint and in this way define classes that are then learned by a classifier. Compared to part based approaches, our approach does not suffer from(More)
Two examples of a rare class of di-radical azo-anion complexes of 2-(arylazo) pyridine with Ir(III) carrier are introduced. Their electronic structures have been elucidated using a host of physical methods that include X-ray crystallography, cyclic voltammetry, electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy, and density functional theory. Room temperature(More)
In this work, ortho-C-N bond fusion reactions of aniline are followed by the use of two different ruthenium mediators. Reaction of aniline with [RuIII(terpy)Cl3] (terpy = 2,2':6',2″-terpyridine) resulted in a trans bis-aniline ruthenium(II) complex [1]+ which upon oxidation with H2O2 produced compound [2]+ of a bidentate ligand,(More)
Debabrata Sengupta, Abhishek Sharma {dsgupta, abhisheksharma} @ stanford.edu Solving Word Jumbles We propose to develop an android based application that can assist the user in solving word jumbles commonly found in newspapers and magazines. An example of a typical word jumble which might be found in a book of puzzles is shown in the figure below. Goals :(More)
In an unusual reaction of [Pd(L(1))Cl2] (L(1) = 2-(arylazo)pyridine) with amines, a new series of palladium complexes [Pd(L(2•-))Cl] (L(2) = 2-((2-amino)arylazo)pyridine) (1a-1h) were isolated. The complexes were formed via N-H and N-C bond cleavage reactions of 1°/2° and 3° amines, respectively, followed by regioselective aromatic ortho-C-N bond formation(More)
A series of nickel complexes of 2-(arylazo)pyridine have been synthesized, and the precise structure and stoichiometry of the complexes are controlled by the use of different metal precursors. Molecular and electronic structures of the isolated complexes are scrutinized thoroughly by various spectroscopic techniques, single crystal X-ray crystallography,(More)
