The Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R) is one of the most commonly used instruments for assisting in the behavioral diagnosis of autism. The exam consists of 93 questions that must be answered by a care provider within a focused session that often spans 2.5 hours. We used machine learning techniques to study the complete sets of answers to the(More)
Heterocyclic ureas, such as N-3-thienyl N'-aryl ureas, have been identified as novel inhibitors of raf kinase, a key mediator in the ras signal transduction pathway. Structure-activity relationships were established, and the potency of the screening hit was improved 10-fold to IC(50)=1.7 microM. A combinatorial synthesis approach enabled the identification(More)
Inhibitors of the MAP kinase p38 are potentially useful for the treatment for osteoporosis, arthritis, and other inflammatory diseases. A series of thienyl, furyl, and pyrrolyl ureas has been identified as potent p38 inhibitors, displaying in vitro activity in the nanomolar range.
The need to fabricate photonic crystals from lithium niobate (LN) with accurate feature sizes is important to the development of optoelectronic devices. This paper reports a fabrication process to dry etch X-cut LN at a submicron scale using electron beam lithography and chromium as a hard mask. The chromium mask was used for both dry-etching and(More)
The electronic phase diagram of the weak spin-orbit Mott insulator (Sr(1-x)La(x))(3)Ir(2)O(7) is determined via an exhaustive experimental study. Upon doping electrons via La substitution, an immediate collapse in resistivity occurs along with a narrow regime of nanoscale phase separation comprised of antiferromagnetic, insulating regions and paramagnetic,(More)
Lithium niobate is a key, well-known material in optical communication that maintains its importance due to its high speed in electro-optical modulators and other optical devices. Using a benzoic acid proton exchange method and annealing in wet O 2 , we have fabricated waveguides along the y-axis of-x-cut lithium niobate substrate. We have optimized proton(More)
The compounds RECuGa3 (RE = La-Nd, Sm-Gd) were synthesized by various techniques. Preliminary X-ray diffraction (XRD) analyses at room temperature suggested that the compounds crystallize in the tetragonal system with either the centrosymmetric space group I4/mmm (BaAl4 type) or the non-centrosymmetric space group I4mm (BaNiSn3 type). Detailed(More)
A rapid sensitive method for the quantification of in vitro HIV-protease activity has been developed on the basis of the endoproteolytic conversion of N-Dns-SQ-NYPIV to N-Dns-SQNY. The use of the N-dansyl group as a fluorescence label was shown to not significantly alter the apparent kinetic parameters for the peptide-enzyme interaction. Using fluorescence(More)
The magnetic ground state of the J(eff)=1/2 hyperkagome lattice in Na₄Ir₃O₈ is explored via combined bulk magnetization, muon spin relaxation, and neutron scattering measurements. A short-range, frozen state comprised of quasistatic moments develops below a characteristic temperature of T(F)=6  K, revealing an inhomogeneous distribution of spins occupying(More)
