21. Safety Considerations in Designing a Facility for Mechanical Property Measurements in High Pressure Gaseous Hydrogen Environments.
Published: 5/4/2010
Authors: Andrew J Slifka, Yaakov Levy, Nicholas Nanninga, Thomas A. (Thomas A.) Siewert, Joseph David McColskey
Abstract: N/A

22. A Uniaxial bioMEMS device for imaging single cell response during quantitative force-displacement measurements
Published: 12/1/2008
Authors: David Serrell, Jera Law, Andrew J Slifka, Roop L Mahajan, Dudley S. Finch
Abstract: Mechanical forces play a key role in many cellular processes such as apoptosis and differentiation. A microfabricated device has been developed for imaging of a single, adherent cell while quantifying force under an applied strain. The device works i ...

23. Stiffening of the Extrapulmonary Arteries in Chronic Hypoxic Pulmonary Hypertension
Published: 7/1/2008
Authors: Elizabeth S Drexler, J. E. Bischoff, Christopher N McCowan, Andrew J Slifka, Timothy P Quinn, Robin Shandas, Dunbar Ivy, K. R. Stenmark
Abstract: It is increasingly appreciated that changes in the compliance properties of large blood vessels are critical determinants of ventricular afterload and ultimately dysfunction. Little is known of the mechanical properties of large vessels in the settin ...

24. Spatially and Temporally Resolved Thermal Imaging of Cyclically Heated Interconnects by Use of Scanning Thermal Microscopy
Published: 1/1/2008
Authors: Nicholas Barbosa, Andrew J Slifka
Abstract: A scanning thermal microscope (SThM) was used to investigate the spatial and temporal distribution of temperature in electrical interconnect structures designed for measuring the mechanical properties of thin films. Knowledge of the thermal behavior ...

25. Interaction of environmental conditions: Role in the reliability of active implantable devices
Published: 6/7/2007
Authors: Elizabeth S Drexler, Andrew J Slifka, Nicholas Barbosa, John W. Drexler
Abstract: Present techniques for assessing the reliability of active implantable medical devices (AIMDs) rely on testing one or two environmental conditions at a time. But the interaction of these environmental conditions may have a greater impact on reliabili ...

26. Electrochemical measurements of diffusion through cardiac muscle tissue engineering scaffolds
Published: 5/18/2007
Authors: Kavita M Jeerage, Stephanie M. LaNasa, Damian S Lauria, Stephanie J. Bryant, Andrew J Slifka
Abstract: Cardiomyocytes, the beating cells of the heart, are highly dependent on oxygen for survival and function. Early work in cardiac muscle tissue engineering revealed that cardiomyocytes only survived within 150 microns of the scaffold's edge due to limi ...

27. A Uniaxial BioMEMS Device for Quantitative Force-Displacement Measurements
Published: 4/3/2007
Authors: David Serrell, Tammy L. Oreskovic, Andrew J Slifka, Roop L Mahajan, Dudley Finch
Abstract: There is a need for experimental techniques that allow the simultaneous imaging of cellular cystoskeletal components with quantitative force measurements on single cells. A bioMEMS device has been developed for the application of strain to a single c ...

28. Strain-Induced Grain Growth during Rapid Thermal Cycling of Aluminum Interconnects
Published: 1/1/2007
Authors: Robert R Keller, Roy H. Geiss, Nicholas Barbosa, Andrew J Slifka, David Thomas Read
Abstract: We demonstrate by use of automated electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) the rapid growth of grains in non-passivated, sputtered Al-1Si interconnects during 200 Hz thermal cycling induced by alternating electric current. Mean grain diameters were o ...

29. Stress-strain behavior of rat pulmonary arteries
Published: 1/1/2007
Authors: Elizabeth S Drexler, J Wright, Andrew J Slifka, Christopher N McCowan, Dunbar Ivy, Robin Shandas
Abstract: The stress-strain behavior of rat pulmonary arteries was studied using a bubble inflation technique. To obtain mechanical properties, an analytical method to evaluate the bubble test results was developed. A flat disk of rat pulmonary artery was cons ...

30. Electrical Methods for Mechanical Characterization of Interconnect Thin Films
Published: 9/1/2005
Authors: Robert R Keller, Cynthia A. Volkert, Roy H. Geiss, Andrew J Slifka, David Thomas Read, Nicholas Barbosa, Reiner Monig
Abstract: We describe the use of electrical methods for evaluating mechanical reliability and properties of patterned copper and aluminum interconnects on silicon substrates. The approach makes use of controlled Joule heating, which causes thermal strains in t ...
