41. Hybrid shape descriptor and meta similarity generation for non-rigid and partial 3D model retrieval
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/26/2013
Author: Afzal A Godil
Abstract: Non-rigid and partial 3D model retrieval are two significant and challenging research directions in the field of 3D model retrieval. Little work has been done in proposing a hybrid shape descriptor that works for both retrieval scenarios, let alone ...

43. Ab initio study of the mechanical and the transport properties of pure and contaminated silver nanowires
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/12/2013
Authors: Shmuel Barzilai, Francesca M Tavazza, Lyle E Levine
Abstract: The conductance and mechanical properties of pure and contaminated silver nanowires were studied using density functional theory (DFT) calculations. Several nanowires containing O2 on their surface were elongated along two different directions. All o ...

44. Molecular Layer-by-Layer Assembled Reverse Osmosis Membranes for Water Desalination
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/12/2013
Authors: Joung-Eun Gu, Seunghye Lee, Wansuk Choi, Jong Suk Lee, Bo-Young Kim, Edwin P Chan, Christopher M Stafford, Jun-Young Chung, Joona Bang, Jung-Hyun Lee
Abstract: Here, we report on the successful design, construction, and performance of membranes constructed using the mLbL process and show that these membranes exceed the performance of membranes synthesized through conventional interfacial polymerization. In ...

45. Structure stability and electronic transport of gold nanowires on BeO (0001) surface
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/12/2013
Authors: Shmuel Barzilai, Francesca M Tavazza, Lyle E Levine
Abstract: Gold nanowire chains are considered a good candidate for nanoelectronics devices since they exhibit remarkable structural and electrical properties. For practical engineering devices, -wurtzite BeO may be a useful platform for supporting the ...

46. Characterization of polydopamine thin films deposited at short times by the autoxidation of dopamine
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/9/2013
Author: Rebecca A Zangmeister
Abstract: Current interest in melanin films derived from the autoxidation of dopamine stems from their use as a universal adhesion layer. Here we report chemical and physical characterization of polydopamine films deposited on gold surfaces from stirred basic ...

47. A highly ordered non-crystalline metallic phase
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/5/2013
Authors: Gabrielle Gibbs Long, Karena Chapman, Peter Chupas, Leonid A Bendersky, Lyle E Levine, Frederic Mompiou, John W. (John W.) Cahn, Judith K. Stalick
Abstract: We report the characterization of an ordered non-crystalline isotropic metallic solid that, during rapid cooling of an Al-Fe-Si melt, forms by nucleation, followed by growth along a moving interface between the solid and melt with partitioning of the ...

50. Solving the Robot-World/Hand-Eye Calibration Problem Using the Kronecker Product
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 6/24/2013
Author: Mili Indra Shah
Abstract: This paper constructs a closed-form solution to the robot-world/hand-eye calibration paper using the Kronecker product. In other words, it constructs the optimal X and Y to solve AX = YB. Additionally, this paper provides errors metrics that will mea ...
