Abstract:Current otoacostic emission probes used diagnostic evaluation middle and inner ear components of hearing are not capable of producing well-calibrated and high-quality acoustic stimuli that cover the entire frequency range of human hearing and are thus unsuited for rapid evaluation of the range of… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This proposal attepts to develop a new high efficiency process for conversion of carbon dioxide and water to syngas, as a first step in production of synthetic fuels. We have already demonstrated the conversion of carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide at over 80% energy efficiency. The… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop inexpensive carbon dioxide sensors for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) controls. The sensors will use Dioxide Materials' patent pending catalyst mixtures, to create a series of CO2 sensors using a… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Sapphire possesses a number of physical properties, including high strength, high melting point, chemical inertness, and excellent transparency in the visible and IR spectrum, which make it an attractive window material for military applications. For Phase I, Rubicon Technology… more
Abstract:Mercury cadmium telluride (HgCdTe) is used in ultrahigh performance infrared (IR) detectors and focal plane arrays (FPAs) used by both the DoD and NASA. This material has been shown to be unique in many ways in comparison to other IR materials. For example, it is possible to scan over the entire… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: AuraSense is developing and commercializing NanoFlare technology as an enabling tool for detecting RNA levels in cells. Current methods for sensing of viral exposure require great amounts of virus particles to be present in blood, or extensive processing of blood to isolate virus-specific… more
Abstract:In this proposal, we demonstrate fabrication and characterization of diamond nanoribbons, novel strain-modulated diamond nanostructures (SMDN). Such structures are generated by applying strain force on nano-patterned diamond film as the nanopatterns are transferred to a flexible substrate. Once the… 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.
