The tara tandem magnetic mirror at m.i.t. will play an important role in the mirror fusion research program. it will test the efficacy of a magnetic configuration which is different from those of other leading mirror devices (such as tmx-u and mftf-b), and it will be used for studying basic physical… More

DISPOSABLE INSTRUMENTATION FOR THE DIAGNOSIS OF DISEASES OF MILITARY IMPORTANCE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Jon c wannlund
Award Amount: $46,377.00
Abstract:
The primary objectives of this project are to develop a rapid sensitive, and portable detection system by using bioluminescence as the label for the identification of disease-causing agents as well as the diagnosis of disease. bioluminescent labels when linked to the targeting agent (i.e. monoclonal… More

ZT IMAGING FOR LAYERED THIN WALL STRUCTURES
