Pooling designs are used in clone library screening to efficiently distinguish positive clones from negative clones. Mathematically, a pooling design is just a nonadaptive group testing scheme which has been extensively studied in the literature. In some applications, there is a third category of clones called "inhibitors" whose effect is to neutralize(More)
\.0. iterative approximation algorithm for analyzing a closed queueing system with a K-sibling fork/ join queue is presented. The iterative procedure is based on a combination of nearly complete decomposability and the Gauss-Seidel method. The approximation procedure gives good results for the mean response time and the system throughput. However, it gives(More)
In large area micro hot embossing, process temperature plays a critical role in both the local fidelity of microstructure formation and global uniformity. Micro embossing at the lowest temperature with acceptable fidelity can improve the global flatness after demolding. This paper focuses on polymer deformation and recovery in micro embossing when the(More)
The technique for assembling a uniform oxide line by overlapping a series of nanosized oxide dots induced by atomic force microscopy is analytically and experimentally investigated. In addition to the normal continuous (static) pulses, the oxide growth rates under various discontinuous (modulated) pluses are studied to quantify the overlapping effect under(More)
