Electrical conduction and dielectric breakdown in aluminum oxide insulators on silicon
Leakage currents and dielectric breakdown were studied in MIS capacitors of metal-aluminum oxide-silicon. The aluminum oxide was produced by thermally oxidizing AlN at 800-1160/spl deg/C under dryExpand

Submillisecond-response and scattering-free infrared liquid crystal phase modulators.
We demonstrate a submillisecond-response and scattering-free infrared phase modulator using a polymer network liquid crystal (PNLC). The required voltage for achieving 2π phase change at λ = 1.06 µmExpand

Conformational flexibility and changes underlying activation of the SUMO-specific protease SENP1 by remote substrate binding
Ubiquitin-like (Ubl) modifications regulate nearly all cellular functions in eukaryotes with the largest superfamily of Ubl-specific proteases being Cys proteases. SENP1 is a model for this proteaseExpand

Electro-optic response of polymer-stabilized blue phase liquid crystals
The dynamic response of a polymer-stabilized blue phase liquid crystal (BPLC) is comprised of two distinct processes: Kerr effect-induced local reorientation and electrostriction-induced latticeExpand

Refraction effect in an in-plane-switching blue phase liquid crystal cell.
We develop a refraction model to analyze the electro-optic effects of an in-plane-switching blue phase liquid crystal (IPS-BPLC) cell. Good agreement with experiment is obtained. Based on this model,Expand
