Diaphragmatic rupture is a life-threatening condition. Diaphragmatic injuries are quite uncommon and often result from either blunt or penetrating trauma. Diaphragmatic ruptures are usually associated with abdominal trauma however, it can occur in isolation. Acute traumatic rupture of the diaphragm may go unnoticed and there is often a delay between the(More)
Seebeck coefficient is one of the key parameters to evaluate the performance of thermoelectric coolers. However, it is very difficult to directly measure Seebeck coefficient perpendicular to thin film devices because of the difficulty of creating a temperature gradient and measuring localized temperature and voltage change simultaneously. In this paper, a(More)
Synchronized oscillations are of critical functional importance in many biological systems. We show that such oscillations can arise without centralized coordination in a disordered system of electrically coupled excitable and passive cells. Increasing the coupling strength results in waves that lead to coherent periodic activity, exhibiting cluster, local(More)
Intrahepatic sarcomatoid cholangiocarcinoma is a rare but an aggressive variant of cholangiocarcinoma with a very poor prognosis. We report the first caucasian patient who presented with a rapidly enlarging liver mass requiring hepatic resection. Detailed histopathological analyses including immunohistochemistry and electron microscopy confirmed sarcomatoid(More)
The transient Harman technique is used to characterize the cross-plane ZT of InGaAs/InGaAlAs superlattice structures with embedded ErAs nanoparticles in the well layers. ErAs nanoparticles have proven to substantially reduce the thermal conductivity while slightly increasing the electrical conductivity of bulk InGaAs. The InGaAs/InGaAlAs superlattice(More)

We report a wafer scale approach for the fabrication of thin-film power generators composed of arrays of 400 p and n type ErAs: InGaAs/ InGaAlAs superlattice thermoelectric elements. The elements incorporate ErAs metallic nanoparticles into the semiconductor superlattice structure to provide charge carriers and create scattering centers for phonons. p-and(More)
We have developed thin film heaters/sensors that can be integrated on top of superlattice microcoolers to measure the Seebeck coefficient perpendicular to the layer. In this paper, we discuss the Seebeck coefficients of InGaAs/InAlAs superlattices grown with Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) that have different doping concentrations, varying between 2e18, 4e18,(More)
There has been much interest in understanding collective dynamics in networks of brain regions due to their role in behavior and cognitive function. Here we show that a simple, homogeneous system of densely connected oscillators, representing the aggregate activity of local brain regions, can exhibit a rich variety of dynamical patterns emerging via(More)
