[1] We estimate the slip distribution from the MW 8.1 Solomon Islands earthquake in 2007, from two post-seismic surveys measuring uplifted coral and submerged coastal features. The occurrence of islands extremely proximal to the trench and nucleation of rupture allowed for the collection of unprecedented coseismic deformation dataset along a large(More)
Fabrication of diamond structures by self-assembly is a fundamental challenge in making three-dimensional photonic crystals. We simulate a system of model hard particles with attractive patches and show that they can self-assemble into a diamond structure from an initially disordered state. We quantify the extent to which the formation of the diamond(More)
Microjet, or inkjet, technology is used to fabricate lenslet arrays with packing densities greater than 15000/cm/sup 2/. Typical lens diameters range between 70 and 150 /spl mu/m, and focal lengths are between 50 and 150 /spl mu/m. Individual lenslets are characterized in the Fraunhofer plane. The full array is characterized in its far field.<<ETX>>
The electrochemistry and electrocatalysis of a number of heme proteins entrapped in agarose hydrogel films in the room-temperature ionic liquid 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate ([bmim][PF(6)]) have been investigated. UV-vis and FTIR spectroscopy show that the heme proteins retain their native structure in agarose film. The uniform(More)
Vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) have been recognized as low-cost low-power light sources for applications, such as, optoelectronic (OE) interconnects for high-speed optical data communication. However, many VCSEL applications have not been fully realized due to the lack of solutions to technical issues such as optical coupling, alignment,(More)
A new and simple method to directly synthesize stable and crystalline pure phase La(OH)(3) nanorods was developed using cationic surfactant (cetyltrimethylammonium bromide, CTAB). The advantages of the method are facile synthesis, at room temperature, and low cost. X-ray diffraction (XRD) spectra, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectra, scanning electron(More)
We study a phenomenological model in which the simulated packing of hard, attractive spheres on a prolate spheroid surface with convexity constraints produces structures identical to those of prolate virus capsid structures. Our simulation approach combines the traditional Monte Carlo method with a modified method of random sampling on an ellipsoidal(More)
Single-sensor digital cameras spatially sample the incoming image using a color filter array (CFA). Consequently, each pixel only contains a single color value. In order to reconstruct the original full-color image, a demosaicing step must be performed which interpolates the missing colors at each pixel. Goals in CFA demosaicing include color fidelity,(More)
Colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals have attracted attention for cost-effective, solution-based deposition of quantum-confined thin films for optoelectronics. However, two significant challenges must be addressed before practical nanocrystal-based devices can be realized. The first is coping with the ligands that terminate the nanocrystal surfaces. Though(More)
The doping of semiconductor nanocrystals (NCs), which is vital for the optimization of NC-based devices, remains a significant challenge. While gas-phase plasma approaches have been successful in incorporating dopant atoms into NCs, little is known about their electronic activation. Here, we investigate the electronic properties of doped silicon NC thin(More)
