Design and Optimization of Low-Power and High-Speed Spintronic Logic Devices

Mankalale, Meghna (2020-02)
Modern silicon transistor-based electronic circuits dissipate tremendous amounts of power as heat during computation. This has proven to be a bottleneck in making faster and smaller circuits. The sizes of the transistors ...

Dependence of Whole Blood Rheology on Oxygen Tension in Sickle Cell DIsease

Lu, Xinran (2018-02)
In sickle cell disease, oxygen tension plays a major role in dictating the mechanical function of single red blood cells. As oxygen tension decreases, cellular stiffness increases, to the point where the flow of whole blood ...

Synthetic Biology Approach to New Sustainable Materials

McClintock, Maria (2018-03)
Rapid industrialization and an abundance of cheap petroleum fueled the production and development of a great variety of synthetic polymers in the twentieth century. Over the past 60 years, these materials have become a ...

An Examination of the Cardiothoracic Tissue Biophysical Response to Electroporation Therapies

Mattison, Lars (2019-02)
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a disease that affects an estimated 2.7 to 6.1 million people in the United States alone. Currently there are two primary ways to treat the disease: drug or ablation therapy. Ablation therapy ...

Adapter Synthesis: Synthesizing And Repairing Programs Using Scalable Symbolic Execution

Sharma, Vaibhav (2020-02)
Independently developed codebases typically contain many segments of code that perform the same or closely related operations (semantic clones). Finding functionally equivalent segments enables applications like replacing ...
