  1. pmc Elasticity in ionically cross-linked neurofilament networks
    Norman Y Yao
    Department of Physics, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA
    Biophys J 98:2147-53. 2010
    ..We show that the elasticity of neurofilament networks is entropic in origin and is consistent with a model for cross-linked semiflexible networks, which we use to quantify the cross-linking by divalent ions...
  2. doi request reprint Topologically protected quantum state transfer in a chiral spin liquid
    N Y Yao
    Department of Physics, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
    Nat Commun 4:1585. 2013
    ..Possible experimental implementations and applications to the detection and characterization of spin liquid phases are discussed...

    N Y Yao
    Physics Department, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
    Nat Commun 3:800. 2012
    ..Moreover, it alleviates the stringent constraints currently limiting the realization of scalable quantum processors and will provide fundamental insights into the physics of non-equilibrium many-body quantum systems...

    Norman Y Yao
    Department of Physics, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    J Mol Biol 411:1062-71. 2011
    ..These changes in the mechanical properties of actin networks cross-linked with mutant Actn4 may represent physical determinants of the underlying disease mechanism in inherited focal segmental glomerulosclerosis...
  5. pmc Stress-enhanced gelation: a dynamic nonlinearity of elasticity
    Norman Y Yao
    Department of Physics, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
    Phys Rev Lett 110:018103. 2013
    ..We show that this macroscopic network response can be accounted for at the single molecule level by the increased binding affinity of the cross-linker under load, characteristic of catch-bond-like behavior...
  6. ncbi request reprint Origins of elasticity in intermediate filament networks
    Yi Chia Lin
    Department of Physics, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
    Phys Rev Lett 104:058101. 2010
    ..We demonstrate that divalent ions behave as effective cross-linkers for both networks, and that the elasticity of these networks is consistent with the theory for that of semiflexible polymers...
