Propagation topography of redox phase transformations in heterogeneous layered oxide cathode materials
(Springer Nature, 2018-07-18)
Redox phase transformations are relevant to a number of metrics pertaining to the electrochemical performance of batteries. These phase transformations deviate from and are more complicated than the conventional theory of ...
Carbon dioxide stimulates lake primary production
(Springer Nature, 2018-07-18)
Gross primary production (GPP) is a fundamental ecosystem process that sequesters carbon dioxide (CO2) and forms the resource base for higher trophic levels. Still, the relative contribution of different controls on GPP ...
An introduction to compartmental modeling for the budding infectious disease modeler
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-08-16)
Mathematical models are ubiquitous in the study of the transmission dynamics of infectious diseases, In particular, the classic ‘susceptible-infectious-recovered’ (SIR) paradigm provides a modeling framework that can be ...
Transcriptomic Analysis of Hepatic Cells in Multicellular Organotypic Liver Models
(Springer Nature, 2018-07-27)
Liver homeostasis requires the presence of both parenchymal and non-parenchymal cells (NPCs). However, systems biology studies of the liver have primarily focused on hepatocytes. Using an organotypic three-dimensional (3D) ...
The TECHtonic, Spring 2018
(Virginia Tech, 2018)
This is the newsletter for the Department of Geosciences, published twice annually.
De novo formation of an aggregation pheromone precursor by an isoprenyl diphosphate synthase-related terpene synthase in the harlequin bug
Insects use a diverse array of specialized terpene metabolites as pheromones in intraspecific interactions. In contrast to plants and microbes, which employ enzymes called terpene synthases (TPSs) to synthesize terpene ...
Can NanoSIMS probe quantitatively the geochemical composition of ancient organic-walled microfossils? A case study from the early Neoproterozoic Liulaobei Formation
Assessing the biogenicity of Precambrian putative remnants of life requires solid criteria. Among possible criteria, searching for evidence of pristine biological signatures and identifying various biological organic matter ...
Validating quantum-classical programming models with tensor network simulations
The exploration of hybrid quantum-classical algorithms and programming models on noisy near-term quantum hardware has begun. As hybrid programs scale towards classical intractability, validation and benchmarking are critical ...
Self-assembled PCBM bilayers on graphene and HOPG examined by AFM and STM
In this work we report fabrication and characterization of phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) bilayer structures on graphene and highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG). Through careful control of the PCBM ...
Performance of a full scale prototype detector at the BR2 reactor for the SoLid experiment
The SoLid collaboration has developed a new detector technology to detect electron anti-neutrinos at close proximity to the Belgian BR2 reactor at surface level. A 288 kg prototype detector was deployed in 2015 and collected ...
