OBJECTIVES To examine recent research work in the development and evaluation of controlled biomedical terminologies - especially, the representation of structured, controlled definitional knowledge about the terms themselves; such terminologies are often referred to as 'ontologies'. METHODS A review of the published literature using PubMed, as well as(More)
A novel dummy molecularly imprinted magnetic nanoparticle (MI-MNP) was prepared by a hybrid imprinting technique for dispersive solid-phase extraction (d-SPE) and determination of bisphenol A (BPA). 2,2'-Bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)-hexafluoropropane was used as the template molecule and Fe3O4 nanoparticle as the magnetic core. The MI-MNPs were characterized by(More)
We elaborate on and experimentally characterize the intermodulation crosstalk properties of a 10-Gb/s silicon microring modulator. Bit-error-rate measurements and eye diagrams are used to discern the degradation in signal quality due to intermodulation crosstalk. Evaluation of the power penalties with varying channel spacing are used to support(More)
A defect-enhanced silicon photodiode and heater are integrated with and used to thermally stabilize a microring modulator. These optoelectronic components are interfaced with external control circuitry to create a closed-looped feedback system for thermally stabilizing the microring modulator. The thermal stabilization system enables the microring modulator(More)
Several studies have evaluated the associations between methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) C677T and psoriasis. However, the results remain inconclusive. The objective of the present study was to conduct a qualitative and quantitative meta-analysis investigating the associations between MTHFR C677T and psoriasis. A published work search of PubMed,(More)
We introduce a multi-layer silicon photonic microring resonator filter, fabricated using deposited materials, and transmit up to 12.5-Gb/s error-free data, establishing a novel class of high-performance silicon photonics for advanced photonic NoCs.
We demonstrate a novel optically-connected memory system based on a silicon photonic switch that enables reconfiguration and redundancy. The FPGA-emulated system achieved 10-Gb/s WDM communication between a CPU and two memory nodes. OCIS codes: (200.4650) Optical interconnects; (060.4255) Networks, multicast; (200.0200) Optics in computing
Silicon photonic interconnection networks can provide significant advantages in bandwidth densities and data communication energy efficiencies over electronic-interconnected systems. However, due to the circuit switched nature of photonics, the latencies associated with circuit setup and reconfiguration must be managed to avoid added delays in application(More)
Optical interconnects, which support the transport of large bandwidths over warehouse-scale distance, can help to further scale data-movement capabilities in high performance computing (HPC) platforms. However, due to the circuit switching nature of optical systems and additional peculiarities, such as sensitivity to temperature and the need for wavelength(More)
