Abstract:The specific aim of this Phase I study is to study the feasibility of a new low cost technology for high resolution, high sensitivity, Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT). The principal objective of this new technology is to achieve about a factor of six higher spatial resolution (1… more
Abstract:We will devise an interactive, intelligent computer-based multimedia system that will substantially improve the desire for and retention of Cancer Prevention and Health Promotion information. Such a system can benefit from more effective use of improved graphical interfaces, interactive video,… more
Abstract:A research proposal to develop a very high heat flux heat exchanger to cool semiconductor laser arrays is presented. The proposed design will be based on currently available microchannel heat exchangers. In order to enhance their performance so that they may be used for the proposed application, a… more
Abstract:IN PHASE I OF THIS PROPOSAL WE WISH TO INVESTIGATE A NEW MATERIAL B-BBO AS HIGH AVERAGE POWER AND HIGH PEAK POWER ELECTRO-OPTIC INTRACAVITY POCKELS CELL. SUCH A DEVICE IS REQUIRED FOR DIODE-PUMPED Nd:YAG SOLID-STATE LASERS FOR HANDLING CIRCULATING POWERS UPTO 100 WATTS. PRESENT MATERIALS ARE LIMITED… more
Abstract:In clinical research, many of the most important aspects of ensuring valid results hinge on the work of the Clinical Research Associates (CRAs) at field institutions. Many of the duties associated with the position of CRA are well-suited to computer-ization, yet most CRAs do not utilize or under… more
Abstract:CORNEAL SCULPTING IS A NEW TECHNIQUE THAT USES AN ULTRAVIOLET LASER TO CORRECT REFRACTIVE VISION DISORDERS BY ABLATING A PORTION OF THE CORNEA. CURRENT CLINICAL SYSTEMS USE THE ARF EXCIMER LASER OPERATING AT 193 NM, WHICH PRODUCES SHARPLY DEFINED CORNEAL INCISIONS WITH MINIMAL DAMAGE TO ADJACENT… more
Abstract:THE DEVELOPMENT OF GAINASP SEMICONDUCTOR DIODE LASERS FOR FIBER-OPTIC COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS AT 1.55 UM HAS LED TO CONSIDERATION OF THE POTENTIAL USE OF THESE DEVICES IN COMPACT, EYE-SAFE LASER RADAR SYSTEMS. WE PROPOSE A NOVEL LIDAR TECHNIQUE THAT CAN MAKE EFFICIENT USE OF THE NOVEL PROPERTIES OF CW… more
Abstract:DIAGNOSIS OF EYE DISEASES DEPENDS CRITICALLY ON IMAGING OF THE RETINA AND ITS SUPPORTING VASCULATURE, INCLUDING THE CHOROIDAL BLOOD VESSELS, WHICH MUST BE VIEWED THROUGH THE SENSORY RETINA. WE WILL DETERMINE WHETHER THE DIAGNOSTIC CAPABILITIES OF ONE OF THE NEWEST RETINAL IMAGING INSTRUMENTS, THE… more
Abstract:CLEAR AIR TURBULENCE (CAT), WHICH CAN CONTAIN DIFFERENTIAL WIND VELOCITIES OF 100'S OF METERS PER SECOND, ARE A SEVERE DANGER TO AIRCRAFT WHICH ENCOUNTER THEM WITHOUT WARNING. WE DESCRIBE AN EYE-SAFE LIDAR SYSTEM DESIGNED TO PROVIDE 10 SECONDS OF WARNING TO AN AIRCRAFT TRAVELING AT 400 KNOTS. THE… more
Abstract:AT PRESENT, THERE IS NO METHOD FOR THE ACCURATE AND RELIABLE VERIFICATION OF THE EXISTENCE OF A CLEAR LINE-OF-SIGHT BETWEEN MULTIPLE WEAPON SYSTEM PLATFORMS AND MULTIPLE TARGETS. SCHWARTZ ELECTRO-OPTICS PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A LINE-OF-SIGHT VERIFICATION SYSTEM EMPLOYING QUASI-LAMBERTIAN OPTICAL… more
Abstract:THE IMAGING PERFORMANCE OF GROUND-BASED ASTRONOMICAL TELESCOPES IS COMPROMISED BY ATMOSPHERIC TURBULENCE. THERE IS INCREASED INTEREST IN THE USE OF ADAPTIVE OPTICS TO CORRECT FOR ATMOSPHERIC DISTORTION. ONE GENERAL CONCEPT FOR ATMOSPHERIC COMPENSATION INVOLVES THE USE OF A SO-CALLED ARTIFICIAL GUIDE… more
Abstract:BECAUSE MAN IS LEARNING THAT THE EARTH'S ENVIRONMENT IS A FRAGILE SYSTEM, THE NEED FOR UNDERSTANDING MAN'S EFFECTS ON THIS SYSTEM IS GREATER THAN EVER.

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.
