The advent of optoelectronic computers and highly parallel electronic processors has brought about a need for storage systems with enormous memory capacity and memory bandwidth. These demands cannot be met with current memory technologies (i.e., semiconductor, magnetic, or optical disk) without having the memory system completely dominate the processors in(More)
We present an optical pulse delay (OPD) for delaying ultrashort optical pulses that uses an acousto-optic deflector as an active component. The OPD is designed to correct for chromatic dispersion caused by the significant color spectrum of ultrashort pulses. It is intended to be used as one of the components in a three-dimensional memory system based on(More)
As personal projection devices become more common they will be able to support a range of exciting and unexplored social applications. We present a novel system and method that enables playful social interactions between multiple projected characters. The prototype consists of two mobile projector-camera systems, with lightly modified existing hardware, and(More)
Two interactive computer programs, INTRAV and ORAL, were written to permit pharmacokinetic modeling of experimental data and to obtain pertinent values based on derived estimates. Both programs utilize BASIC language and were developed on a microcomputer with graphics capability. Drug concentration in blood, plasma, or serum with time following either(More)
TeleKinect is a platform for collaborate interactions at a distance in the same virtual space. The framework supports the real-time videos transport of foreground elements from remote locations and composites them into a merged virtual space. In this position paper we present two applications that utilize the framework for shared experiences at a distance:(More)
Zero field splitting (ZFS) parameters of several nondeuterated metalloporphyrins [M(TPP)Cl] and [Mn(TPP)] (H2TPP = tetraphenylporphyrin) have been directly determined by inelastic neutron scattering (INS). The ZFS values are the following: D = 6.33(8) cm(-1) for [Fe(TPP)Cl], -2.24(3) cm(-1) for [Mn(TPP)Cl], 0.79(2) cm(-1) for [Mn(TPP)], and |D|= 0.234(12)(More)
Metallacyclic complex [(Me2N)3Ta(η(2)-CH2SiMe2NSiMe3)] (3) undergoes C-H activation in its reaction with H3SiPh to afford a Ta/μ-alkylidene/hydride complex, [(Me2N)2{(Me3Si)2N}Ta(μ-H)2(μ-C-η(2)-CHSiMe2NSiMe3)Ta(NMe2)2] (4). Deuterium-labeling studies with [D3]SiPh show H-D exchange between the Ta-D-Ta unit and all methyl groups in(More)
We present a re-imaged swept volume display enabling mid-air interaction with 3D floating objects without requiring a head-mounted apparatus. The presence of the volume is so strong that everyone reaches out to touch it, at which point the illusion is broken. To resolve this, we implemented interaction techniques to mitigate occlusion conflicts between the(More)
