Handoff in IEEE 802.11 requires the repeated authentication and key exchange procedures, which will make the provision of seamless services in wireless LAN more difficult. To reduce the overhead, the proactive caching schemes have been proposed. However, they require too many control packets delivering the security context information to neighbor access(More)
Fast storage devices are an emerging solution to satisfy data-intensive applications. They provide high transaction rates for DBMS, low response times for Web servers, instant on-demand paging for applications with large memory footprints, and many similar advantages for performance-hungry applications. In spite of the benefits promised by fast hardware,(More)
The Shockley-Queisser limit predicts a maximum efficiency of 30% for single junction photovoltaic (PV) cells. The rest of the solar energy is lost as heat and due to phenomena such as reflection and transmission through the PV and charge carrier recombination. In the case of photocatalysis, this maximum value is smaller since the charge carriers should be(More)
The application of electrical fields within a microfluidic channel enables many forms of manipulation necessary for lab-on-a-chip devices. Patterning electrodes inside the microfluidic channel generally requires multi-step optical lithography. Here, we utilize an ion-implantation process to pattern 3D electrodes within a fluidic channel made of(More)

Emerging non-volatile memory technologies as a disk drive replacement raise some issues of software stack and interfaces, which have not been considered in disk-based storage systems. In this work, we present new cooperative schemes including software and hardware to address performance issues with deploying storage-class memory technologies as a storage(More)
We present a method to perform sample concentration within a lab-on-a-chip using a microfluidic structure which controls the liquid-gas interface through a micropillar array fabricated in polydimethylsiloxane between microfluidic channels. The microstructure confines the liquid flow and a thermal gradient is used to drive evaporation at the(More)
In the past decade, nanomaterials have made their way into a variety of technologies in solar energy, enhancing the performance by taking advantage of the phenomena inherent to the nanoscale. Recent examples exploit plasmonic core/shell nanoparticles to achieve efficient direct steam generation, showing great promise of such nanoparticles as a useful(More)
Storage area network (SAN) is one of the most popular solutions for constructing server environments these days. In these kinds of server environments, HDD-based storage usually becomes the bottleneck of the overall system, but it is not enough to merely replace the devices with faster ones in order to exploit their high performance. In other words, proper(More)
