Fabrication and readout of devices with progressively smaller size, ultimately down to the molecular scale, is critical for the development of very-high-frequency nanoelectromechanical systems ͑NEMS͒. Nanomaterials, such as carbon nanotubes or nanowires, offer immense prospects as active elements for these applications. We report the fabrication and(More)
BACKGROUND To examine if the metabolic distress after traumatic brain injury (TBI) is associated with a unique proteome. METHODS Patients with severe TBI prospectively underwent cerebral microdialysis for the initial 96 h after injury. Hourly sampling of metabolism was performed and patients were categorized as having normal or abnormal metabolism as(More)
BACKGROUND Serum total human chorionic gonadotrophin β subunit (hCGβ) level might have prognostic value in urothelial transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) but has not been investigated for independence from other prognostic variables. METHODS We utilised a clinical database of patients receiving chemotherapy between 2005 and 2011 for urothelial TCC and an(More)
All Rights Reserved iii ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS First of all, I'd like to thank my advisor, Prof. Michael Roukes, who has always been a strong support through all these years of my graduate career, and beyond. During my stay at Condensed Matter Physics at Caltech, I have been privileged to work with, and learn from, other members of the group. Special thanks goes(More)
