Abstract:THE POTENTIAL TO ACHIEVE HIGH INSULATING VALUE BY THE USE OF EVACUATED GLASS MICROSPHERES HAS BEEN KNOWN FOR SOME TIME. THE PURPOSE OF THE RESEARCH IS TO SOLVE THE PRINCIPAL OBSTACLE TO THEIR USE, WHICH HAS BEEN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMMERCIALLY VIABLE TECHNIQUE TO PRODUCE EVACUATED MICROSPHERES. … more
Abstract:Significant improvements must be made in the ability of the health care system to deliver cost effective health care services. A recent Institute of Medicine study identified the development of computer-based patient record systems as being the essential technology which must be developed for… more
Abstract:SUPERSATURATION IS THE DRIVING FORCE FOR CRYSTALLIZATION FROM SOLUTION. CURRENTLY, THERE ARE NO METHODS AVAILABLE FOR MEASUREMENT OF SUPERSATURATION BASED ON CHANGES IN CHEMICAL POTENTIAL. RATHER, ALL CURRENT TECHNIQUES RELY ON MASS CONCENTRATION MEASUREMENT WHICH LACK THE SENSITIVITY FOR PROCESS… more
Abstract:An automatic control system for extracorporeal gas exchange support is presented. A microcomputer-based data acquisition, analysis, and feedback control system will be developed to control extracorporeal oxygen delivery (by adjusting extracorporeal blood flow) and carbon dioxide removal (by… more
Abstract:MECHANICAL SYSTEM SIMULATION (MSS) IS THE TECHNOLOGY USED TO ANALYZE SYSTEMS UNDERGOING LARGE OVERALL MOTION, SUCH AS AN AUTOMOBILE GOING OVER A POTHOLE OR A SPACE SHUTTLE PERFORMING SATELLITE RETRIEVAL. MSS FORMULATIONS LEAD TO A COUPLED SET OF DIFFERENTIAL AND ALGEBRAIC EQUATIONS CALLED INDEX-3… more
Abstract:This research addresses critical needs in the areas of electronic control and monitoring of internal combustion engines that require low-cost, durable, accurate, high-temperature viable, and small-size fiber optic pressure sensors for real-time in-cylinder combustion pressure measurement. By… more
Abstract:It is proposed to demonstrate the performance characteristics of a high energy density rechargeable battery based on the silver metal hydride system with an energy density of 80 Wh/Kg and over 200 Wh/l. These values are almost three times that of Pb/Acid and more than 2 times that of Ni/Cd. Ovonic… more
Abstract:Linoleic acid, the predominant polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) in the human diet, can bemetabolized by cyclooxgenase, lipoxygenase and P450 enzymes. The monohydroxy derivatives oflinoleic acid, 9(S)-HODE and 13 (S)-HODE, are the most widely distributed of the known linoleic acidmetabolites. These… more
Abstract:The development of cancer is a complex process that appears to involve multiple mechanisms.Recent studies indicate that the Her-2/neu (ERBB2) gene may be important in the transformation ofnormal breast epithelial cells to a cancerous phenotype. In reality, more than one-half of breast cancersare… more
Abstract:A novel class of postaglandin F2-like compounds formed in vitro or in vivo by a free-radical catalyzed noncyclocxygenase mechanism have recently been discovered. For normal humans. Levels of these compounds (called F2-isoprostanes) range from 5-50 pg/ml plasma and 500-3000 pg/ml urinary creatinine,… more
Abstract:We will develop and market a comprehensive collection of antibodies specific for enzymes that play a significant role in drug metabolism . Availability of specific antibodies will greatly facilitate studies of polymorphisms, species and tissue distribution of drug metabolizing enzymes, and the role… more
Abstract:We are proposing a fundamental leap forwards in both technique and performance of measurement techniques for characterizing ultrahigh-speed electronic signals. We will design and build a laser-based oscilloscope for characterizing electrical signals in the picosecond time regime. The oscilloscope… more
Abstract:COATED REFRACTORY-METAL MEMBRANES ARE SUGGESTED FOR HYDROGEN EXTRACTION FROM GAS MIXTURES FOR HYDROGEN PURIFICATION, FOR PRODUCING REFORMULATED GASOLINE AND FOR MEMBRANE-REACTOR USE. PALLADIUM-BASED MEMBRANES HAVE BEEN USED FOR DECADES FOR HYDROGEN PURIFICATION AND MEMBRANE REACTORS BECAUSE… more
Abstract:AT PRESENT THERE IS NO SAFE, CHEAP AND EFFECTIVE COMMERCIAL METHOD TO ENHANCE FERTILITY IN FARM ANIMALS. PREVIOUS WORK AT MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY HAS SHOWN THAT IMMUNONEUTRALIZATION OF INHIBIN (A GONADAL GLYCOPROTEIN THAT SUPPRESSES SECRETION OF FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE) ENHANCES: OVULATION… more
Abstract:Advances in signal processing and high speed digital image processing electronics make it feasible to implement a real-time image reconstruction algorithm in a digital FLIR system. Implementation of such an algorithm would result in increased spatial resolution on the order of two to three times and… 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.
