      Consumers want to ensure that their enterprise data is stored securely and obliviously on the cloud, such that the data objects or their access patterns are not revealed to anyone, including the cloud provider, in the ...
    • Managing the Quality of Virtualized Services 

      Joshi, Karuna Pande; Joshi, Anupam; Yesha, Yelena (IEEE, 2011-03-30)
      Managing the quality of virtualized services that are delivered on the cloud is very challenging. Such services are often composed of smaller components that are assembled on an as-needed basis. In this paper, we propose ...

      The ultrabroadband impedance matching of metallic gratings at the plasmonic Brewster angle [A. Alù et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 106, 123902 (2011)] is analyzed here in several realistic scenarios and configurations, and in the ...
    • MCTS: Multi-Channel Transmission Simultaneously using Non-Feedback Fountain Code 

      Liu, Jianhang; Wang, Shuqing; Li, Shibao; Cui, Xuerong; Pan, Yan; Zhu, Ting (IEEE, 2018-10-08)
      Data dissemination is an essential application in IoT network. It is generally relayed hop by hop due to the limitation of the communication distance of IoT devices. However, multi-hop transmission increases dissemination ...
    • Measured signal and group velocity for an optical pulse propagating through a GaAs cavity 

      Centini, M.; D'Aguanno, G.; Sibilia, C.; Bertolotti, M.; Bloemer, M.; Myneni, K.; Scalora, M. (IEEE, 2004-04-05)
      We present measurements of the signal and group velocities for chirped optical pulses propagating through a GaAs cavity. Even when measured group velocity becomes negative the measured signal velocity is always less than c/n.
    • Mechanisms of Spatiotemporal Mode-Locking 

      Wright, Logan G.; Sidorenko, Pavel; Pourbeyram, Hamed; Ziegler, Zachary M.; Isichenko, Andrei; Malomed, Boris A.; Menyuk, Curtis R.; Christodoulides, Demetrios N.; Wise, Frank W. (2019-11-21)
      Mode-locking is a process in which different modes of an optical resonator establish, through nonlinear interactions, stable synchronization. This self-organization underlies light sources that enable many modern scientific ...
    • Meerkat Mafia: Multilingual and Cross-Level Semantic Textual Similarity systems 

      Kashyap, Abhay L.; Han, Lushan; Yus, Roberto; Sleeman, Jennifer; Satyapanich, Taneeya W.; Gandhi, Sunil R.; Finin, Tim (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2014-08-23)
      We describe UMBC's systems developed for the SemEval 2014 tasks on Multilingual Semantic Textual Similarity (Task 10) and Cross-Level Semantic Similarity (Task 3). Our best submission in the Multilingual task ranked second ...
