New developments include integration of discontinuous Galerkin ideas with the variational multiscale finite element methods for the modeling of interface and interphase… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We present a mixture theory based approach for process modeling in ceramic matrix composites. The model is derived from a consistent thermodynamic framework for diffusive-reactive flow of an anisotropic, non-linear viscoelastic fluid through a poroelastic body. A salient feature of the… more
Abstract:The innovation is to develop very small audio subsystems for mobile audio devices with unprecedented noise and interference reduction. Audio subsystems are fundamental to many high-volume portable devices such as mobile phones, media tablets, and digital voice recorders. Multiple microphones can… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION: Substance use disorder (SUD) is a major health problem with direct and indirect impact on healthcare and societal cost that is estimated at over 181 billion annually in the United States. Opioids are the second most abused substances and buprenorphine (BUP) is an effective and safe… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): While the high costs of healthcare in the U.S. can be felt by everyone in the country, the economic impact to patients with kidney failure is particularl significant as dialysis treatments can reach 85,000 annually, with transplantation being the only known cure… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Program Phase I project proposes a new instrument for imaging live cells and tissues. The instrument addresses the current shortcomings of state-of-the art techniques: expensive and invasive contrast agents that bias the results and shorten the lifetime of the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will effectively and efficiently recycle post-consumer plastic materials for high value applications through an innovative and environmentally benign approach known as solid-state shear pulverization (SSSP). SSSP subjects the materials to high… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project seeks to revolutionize the manufacture of ultra-high precision, x-ray diffraction gratings. Mechanically ruled, x-ray gratings are used mainly at synchrotron radiation facilities, where they define the wavelength of x-rays used for chemical… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Program (SBIR) Phase I project is to conduct a feasibility study for the development of wireless sensor network application for a personal healthcare product that monitors and gives feedback about sedentary work habits. This society is becoming increasingly aware of… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will resolve key technical challenges associated with the commercialization of an innovative die-less sheet metal forming process, Double Sided Incremental Forming (DSIF). DSIF locally deforms a peripherally clamped sheet metal component… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project proposes to develop and deliver a high-throughput low-cost nanomanufacturing technology for making high-density high-uniformity omnidirectional-antireflection nanostructures on the entire surface of single crystalline and multicrystalline… more
Abstract:The primary goal of this proposed work is to develop a long wave infrared (LWIR) colloidal quantum dot (CQD)-based focal plane array (FPA) in order to significantly reduce the cost of LWIR hyperspectral imagers.

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.
