The kinetics and thermodynamics of an off-lattice model for a three-helix bundle protein are investigated as a function of a bias gap parameter that determines the energy difference between native and non-native contacts. A simple dihedral potential is used to introduce the tendency to form right-handed helices. For each value of the bias parameter, 100(More)
The "calorimetric criterion" is one of the important experimental approaches for determining whether protein folding is an "all-or-none" two-state transition (i.e., whether intermediates are present at equilibrium). The calorimetric criterion states that the equivalence of the "measured" calorimetric enthalpy change and the effective two-state van't Hoff(More)
This paper demonstrates the use of arrays of networks of single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and electrical breakdown procedures for building thin film transistors (TFTs) that have good, reproducible performance and high current output. Channel length scaling analysis of these TFTs indicates that the resistance at the source/drain contacts is a small(More)
This paper presents methods for solution casting and transfer printing collections of individual single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) onto a wide range of substrates, including plastic sheets. The deposition involves introduction of a solvent that removes surfactant from a suspension of SWNTs as it is applied to a substrate. The subsequent controlled(More)
A constant-energy molecular dynamics simulation is used to monitor protein motion at zero-total angular momentum. With a simple protein model, it is shown that overall rotation is possible at zero-total angular momentum as a result of flexibility. Since the rotational motion is negligible on a time scale of 1000 reduced time units, the essentially(More)
