This paper explores the interrelationships between science and technology in the emergingarea of nano-science and technology. We track patent citation relations at the sectoraldisciplinary,the organizational, and the combined industrial/organizational levels. Then weinvestigate the geographic location and organizational affiliation of inventor/authors. Our(More)
Third-Stream activities have become increasingly important in the UK. However, valuing them in a meaningful way still poses a challenge to science and technology analysts and policy makers alike. This paper reviews the general literature on “patent value” and assesses the extent to which these established measures, including patent citation, patent family,(More)
The gravitational-wave (GW) sky may include nearby pointlike sources as well as stochastic backgrounds. We perform two directional searches for persistent GWs using data from the LIGO S5 science run: one optimized for pointlike sources and one for arbitrary extended sources. Finding no evidence to support the detection of GWs, we present 90% confidence(More)
The first example of a mixed-metal amidoborane Na(2)Mg(NH(2)BH(3))(4) has been successfully synthesized. It forms an ordered arrangement in cation coordinations, i.e., Mg(2+) bonds solely to N(-) and Na(+) coordinates only with BH(3). Compared to ammonia borane and monometallic amidoboranes, Na(2)Mg(NH(2)BH(3))(4) can release 8.4 wt% pure hydrogen with(More)
Aims. A transient astrophysical event observed in both gravitational wave (GW) and electromagnetic (EM) channels would yield rich scientific rewards. A first program initiating EM follow-ups to possible transient GW events has been developed and exercised by the LIGO and Virgo community in association with several partners. In this paper, we describe and(More)
The subtalar, talonavicular, and calcaneocuboid joints were internally fixed to simulate triple arthrodesis was performed on eight matched pairs of human cadaver feet. Feet were randomly assigned such that one specimen in each pair was internally fixed with cobalt-chrome staples and one specimen with stainless steel screws. Liquid metal strain gauges were(More)

Mobile applications of hydrogen power have long demanded new solid hydride materials with large hydrogen storage capacities. We report synthesis of a new quaternary hydride having the approximate composition Li(3)BN(2)H(8) with 11.9 wt % theoretical hydrogen capacity. It forms by reacting LiNH(2) and LiBH(4) powders in a 2:1 molar ratio either by ball(More)
In this exploratory investigation, we conduct five case studies to look into the extent and types of crossdisciplinary practices in a specialty of bionanotechnology. We found that there is a consistently high degree of cross-disciplinarity in the cognitive aspects of research (i.e. references and instrumentalities), but a more erratic and narrower degree in(More)
