Abstract:An innovative approach is required for making a useful advance in the field of low power tampering detection and reverse engineering technologies. Our team's proposal is to investigate and test such an approach, utilizing near-field transduction and plasmonic components. Advantages of this… more
Abstract:We propose the concept of a tube map display as a means to effectively integrate schedule timeline information and fault diagnosis data into a single high value presentation. Tube maps are potentially a high value method of presenting multiple dimensions of information. This work will prove the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will explore, design, and implement a novel flexible ultrasound transducer-based nondestructive inspection and monitoring system to improve and simplify the inspection of curved and non-planar structures. Ultrasound is ideally suited to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): External fetal heart monitors (FHM) allow for intermittent or continuous monitoring of fetal status both before and during labor, and reduce medical costs by allowing fewer nurses or midwives to manage larger number patients. However, current external FHMs are… more
Abstract:This project develops a system to provide auxiliary sensory feedback in the lower limbs of amputees and enhance sensory function for individuals with disabilities through functional capacity and thereby improve their mobility and quality of life. The Farus sensory feedback system detects force loads… more
Abstract:Farus, LLC proposes to develop a novel burn assessment tool based upon THz imaging that will be aid in determining severity and boundaries. THz is ideally suited to burn wound imaging because it is extremely sensitive to water, robust to scattering, non-ionizing, and does not require contrast agents… more
Abstract:Ultrasound guidance procedures, such as central line placement and needle biopsy, require considerable skill to precisely position a needle while simultaneously holding a transducer. Finger-mounted ultrasound (FMUS) transducer array probes may potentially improve the workflow requirements of… more
Abstract:There are a number of basic questions that need to be answered so that IntelliDrive mobile applications can be developed to ensure maximum compatibility with various mobile application platforms. This proposal put forth specific activities that will answer these basic questions on popular… more

Abstract:Interior wood composite panels are widely used for furniture, bookshelf, kitchen cabinets, flooring, and other building materials, and are predominantly made with carcinogenic urea-formaldehyde (UF) resin. New formaldehyde-free wood adhesives that mainly consist of abundant, renewable, and readily… more
Abstract:The current bottleneck for materials characterization using grazing incidence x-ray/neutron scattering (GISAS) lies in the difficulty of modeling and analysis due to the coupling of complicated dynamical and kinematic effects. Modern x-ray and neutron sources will offer the capability of high-speed,… more
Abstract:Synchrotrons, operated by DOE and others, are large and expensive scientific facilities that nonetheless provide invaluable and highly demanded analytical tools for the investigation of basic material structure and properties. Many experiments require specific sample environments for in-situ… more
Abstract:Jema Science Inc teams up with Dr. Yuegang Zhang"s group at Molecular Foundray of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) to propose an electrochemical capacitor (supercapacitor) energy storage concept based on low-cost electrospun carbon nanofibers. We take advantage of extremely low-cost… more

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
