We track the non-uniformity of a wide area liquid crystal device using multiple cross-polarized intensity measurements. They give us not only accurate estimates of the core physical liquid crystal parameters, such as elastic constants, but also spatial maps of the device properties, including the liquid crystal thickness and pretilt angle. A bootstrapping statistical analysis, coupled with the multiple measurements, gives us reliable error bars on all the measured parameters.

A front polarizer-free optically rewritable (ORW) liquid crystal display (LCD) has been made via a hybrid alignment configuration with dye-doped LCs. The hybrid structure consists of one optically act...
Artificially engineered geometric phase optical elements may have tunable photonic functionalities owing to their sensitivity to external fields, as is the case for liquid crystal based devices. Howev...
We report here a series of tetrablock-mimic azobenzene-containing fullerene dyads that form phase segregated two-dimensional (2D) crystal constructed supramolecular liquid crystals (LCs). The unique d...
In the past few decades, novel syntheses of a wide range of nanoparticles (NPs) with well-defined chemical composition and structure have opened tremendous opportunities in areas ranging from optical ...
Quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping in crop plants has now become a common practice due to the advances made in the area of molecular markers as well as that of statistical genomics. Consequently, l...
The main hypothesis are: 1. Passive and Active-Passive airway conditioning devices reduce the incidence of ventilator associated pneumonia 2. Active-Passive airway conditi...
Ablation of atrial fibrillation is an established method for treatment of subjects with atrial fibrillation with goal of restoration of sinus rhythm. Among different methods, wide area cir...
This is a Phase 3, randomized, double-blind, controlled, parallel-group, multicenter clinical trial with co-crystal E-58425 compared to tramadol, to celecoxib, and to placebo. The primary ...
The purpose of this randomized clinical trial is to compare the efficacy and safety of wide area circumferential ablation using contact force catheter with cryoballoon ablation for the tre...
The purpose of this descriptive and exploratory pilot study is to investigate: (1) sagittal plane hip kinematics and kinetics and (2) metabolic consumption/cost, for bilateral transfemoral...
Methods used for studying the interactions of antibodies with specific regions of protein antigens. Important applications of epitope mapping are found within the area of immunochemistry.
The presence of an increased amount of blood in a body part or an organ leading to congestion or engorgement of blood vessels. Hyperemia can be due to increase of blood flow into the area (active or arterial), or due to obstruction of outflow of blood from the area (passive or venous).
The removal of a soluble component from a liquid mixture by contact with a second liquid, immiscible with the carrier liquid, in which the component is preferentially soluble. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)
A central nervous system stimulant and sympathomimetic with actions and uses similar to DEXTROAMPHETAMINE. The smokable form is a drug of abuse and is referred to as crank, crystal, crystal meth, ice, and speed.
Brain injuries occurring over a wide area instead of specific focal area.
