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.

Liquid crystal "Blue Phases" (BP) have evolved, in the last years, from a scientific curiosity to emerging materials for new photonic and display applications. They possess attractive features over st...
T2-weighted cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) using a 3-slice approach has been shown to accurately quantify the edema-based area-at-risk (AAR) in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STE...
The diffusion mechanisms controlling viscous flow, structural relaxation, liquid-liquid phase separation, crystal nucleation, and crystal growth in multicomponent glass-forming liquids are of great in...
Columnar liquid crystals composed of a giant macrocyclic mesogen were prepared. The giant macrocyclic mesogen has a square hollow with a 2.5 nm diagonal, which was bounded by diindolo[3,2-b:2',3'-h]ca...
Optimized nanomorphology in organic thin active layers is crucial for good performance in organic solar cells. However, the relation between morphology and electronic properties at nanoscale remains n...
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 descriptive and exploratory pilot study is to investigate: (1) sagittal plane hip kinematics and kinetics and (2) metabolic consumption/cost, for bilateral transfemoral...
The purpose of this clinical study is to collect safety and performance data to support a demonstration of substantial equivalence of the Catheter Robotics Remote Catheter System to predic...
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.
