Abstract:THE GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVLEOP AN EASY-TO-USE, MICROCOMPUTER-BASED SYSTEM FOR FACILITATING THE DESIGN, IMPLEMENTATION AND ANALYSIS OF RECEIVER OPERATING CHARACTERISTIC (ROC) EXPERIMENTS. THE SPECIFIC PHASE I GOAL IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING SUCH A SYSTEM BY SPECIFYING THE… more
Abstract:The high false-negative rate from Papanicolaou (Pap) smears has motivated the use ofcolposcopy to perform visual inspection of the uterine cervix. It has made a tremendous impact on theability of physicians to perform accurate punch biopsies for histological analysis. However, the difficultyin… more
Abstract:THIS PROGRAM WILL DEVELOP A NEW COMPUTER CONTROLLED STEREOLITHOGRAPHY PROCESS FOR THE MANUFACTURE OF REINFORCED CERAMIC COMPOSITE PARTS. PHASE I WILL DEMONSTRATE A WORKING SYSTEM THAT WILL DIRECTLY READ A COMPUTER CAD DRAWING OF A SIMPLE COMPONENT AND THEN GENERATE THE ACTUAL GREEN COMPOSITE PART.… more
Abstract:SWINE DYSENTERY (SD) HAS BEEN ESTIMATED TO COST SWINE PRODUCERS IN EXCESS OF $180 MILLION ANNUALLY, AND IS QUARANTINABLE IN MOST STATES. CONFIRMATION OF THE DISEASE IS BASED ON THE DETETION OF THE BACTERIA, SERPULINA HYODYSENTERIAE, FROM INFECTED PIGS. AN ACCURATE DIAGNOSIS OF SD CURRENTLY INCLUDES… more
Abstract:MANY AGRICULTURAL CROPS REQUIRE APPLICATION OF PESTICIDES AND/OR HERBICIDES. THE APPLICATOR'S JOB INCLUDES TWO TASKS. FIRST IS TO ACCURATELY PLACE A SPECIFIED UNIFORM SPRAY DENSITY ONTO THE CROP OR SOIL SURFACE. SECOND IS TO MINIMIZE OR ELIMINATE DRIFT OF PARTICLES INTO SENSITIVE AREAS SUCH AS HOMES… more
Abstract:RESEARCHERS ARE DETERMINING THE FEASIBILITY OF DETECTING ULTRATRACE LEVELS OF THE HIGHLY TOXIC HYDRIDE GASES ARSINE AND PHOSPHINE BY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE REVERSIBLE INTERACTION OF THESE GASES WITH NOBLE METAL SURFACES. ARSINE AND PHOSPHINE ARE EXTREMELY TOXIC WITH THRESHOLD VALUES FOR HUMAN… more
Abstract:Proposed is a new concept for high effectiveness regenerative heat exchangers which are critically needed to develop efficient cryocoolers for operation at temperatures of 10K and below. Development of light weight, power efficient, long life cryocoolers capable of providing refrigeration at and… more
Abstract:Research and Development is proposed of a novel form of compact freon-free refrigeration system. The proposed unit operates on the Stirling cycle using air as the working fluid. The refrigeratro has an innovative arrangement of four double-acting pistons which will permit a compact, rugged system of… more

THE ARCHITECTURE OF THIS PATENTED PROCESSOR IS BASED ON A NOVEL CONCEPT IN THREE-DIMENSIONAL CELLULAR LOGIC. THE… more
Abstract:DURING THE 1984-1990 ACADEMIA, CARNEGIE MELLON UNIVERSITY AND THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, USING THE $180,000 COULTER BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH ROBOT MICROSCOPE, THE DIFF3/50, INTERFACED TO A $80,000 INTERDATA MODEL 3230 COMPUTER, CONDUCTED RESEARCH UNDER A SERIES OF NIH GRANTS CUMULATIVELY… more
Abstract:THE FATTY ACID COMPOSITION OF THE TRIGLYCERIDE OIL OF VERNONIA GALAMENSIS CONTAINS APPROXIMATELY 80% EPOXY ACID KNOWN AS VERNOLIC (CIS-12, 13-EPOXY-CIS-9-OCTADECENOIC) ACID. THE CURRENT SOURCE OF OILSEED IS ZIMBABWE; HOWEVER, AGRONOMIC RESEARCH BY THE USDA/ARS IS DEVELOPING A VARIETY SUITABLE AS AN… more
Abstract:THE RESARCH DEMONSTRATES EPITAXIAL GROWTH, BY LASER ABLATION IN A UHV VACUUM SYSTEM OF HIGH QUALITY, INSULATING OXIDE FILMS ONTO HEATED SINGLE CRYSTAL SILICON SUBSTRATES, FOLLOWED BY CVD EPITAXIAL GROWTH OF SILICON ONTO THE INSULATING OXIXDE. THE RESEA CHERS ARE FOCUSING ON MGO, CEO2, AND PRO2 AS… more
Abstract:NEW HIGH EXPANSION THERMALLY STABLE MULTIFILAMENT FIBER REINFORCEMENTS ARE KEY TO DEVELOPING SIGNIFICANT ADVANCES INCOMPOSITE MATERIALS. IT HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED THAT TITANUIM ALUMINIDE ALLOYED WITH CARBON (X = 2 OR 3) IS A HIGHLY DESIRABLE HIGH CTE, THERMALLY STABLE MATERIAL FOR REINFORCING ALUMINIDE… more
Abstract:SILICON NITRIDE IS AN ADVANCED CERAMIC MATERIAL WITH EXCEPTIONAL PROPERTIES. HOWEVER, A SEVERE PROPERTY LIMITATION IS OBSERVED IN THE LOW FRACTURE TOUGHNESS OF SI(3)N(4). THE POTENTIAL FOR UTILIZATION OF SI(3)N(4) CERAMICS IN MANY APPLICATIONS WOULD BE SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED IF ITS FRACTURE… 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.
