Abstract:GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY IS ONE OF THE MOST WIDELY USED METHODS FOR THE CHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF ORGANIC COMPOUNDS. THE METHOD HAS BROAD APPLICABILITY, A VERY LARGE CONCENTRATION RANGE, AND EXCELLENT PRECISION AND ACCURACY. HOWEVER, IT IS QUITE SLOW REQUIRING SEVERAL MINUTES OR MORE PER ANALYSIS USING… more
Abstract:THE GOAL OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO FABRICATE A HIGH-SENSITIVITY NANOPROBE WITH THE CAPABILITY OF DIRECTLY DETERMINING THE LATERAL LOCATION OF ATOMS AND MOLECULES ON NONCONDUCTING SURFACES WITH EXTREMELY GOOD SPATIAL RESOLUTION (100 NM) AND VERY HIGH SENSITIVITY (ATOMOLE). THE NANOPROBE COMBINES… more
Abstract:The goal of this program is to develop compact, reliable lasers producing intense (millijoule) femtosecond pulses at high repetition rates. These lasers will be designed to operate in industrial environments and will be ideally suited for non-linear optical diagnostics.
During the Phase I we… more
Abstract:Chromium plating sludge waste from hard and decorative chromium platingoperations is classified as a hazardous waste and its disposal is a majorenvironmental concern. Climax Research Services (CRS) will develop techniquesto recycle the chromium metal values in the sludge back into the… more
Abstract:The U.S. EPA and the California Air Resource Board are imposing regulations for the control of smoke opacity and particulates from diesel engines in mobile application, and the majority of AF trucks are not in compliance. Additionally, the AF is pursuing NOx reduction credits wherever it is… more
Abstract:The proposed research will determine the feasibility of developing a Hyperspectral InfraRed Imager (HIRI). This imager will be used to collect spatial and spectral data from ground based and airborne perspectives, which will then be used in conjunction with a computer based target identification… more
Abstract:There is presently a great deal of interest in developing efficient, nontoxic, cell-specific gene tSpecifically, there has been a focused interest in the development of nonviral vectors which have setheir viral counterparts in that they cannot reconvert, they can be designed to carry a variety of… more
Abstract:The cavity perturbation method is currently widely used for the characterization of the complex dielectric constant of material samples. This method provides a simple analytical solution by relating the real and imaginary parts of the dielectric constant of the sample to the changes in the measured… more
Abstract:The objective of this program is to develop a thin/thick film materials deposition process technology which will reliably provide high quality materials for constructing Peltier thermo-elements with a high figure of merit over the temperature range of 250-350 Deg K. The study will focus on the… more
Abstract:The objective of this program is to design a high energy density hydrogen stroage system, utilizing ECD's extensive experience in metal hydride technology. The system will be based on ECD's ability to develop novel metal hydrides that have the potential to achieve gravimetric energy density of 2… more
Abstract:We will develop and validate a fiber optic sensor for measuring lead in blood which can measure 1-100 micro g/dL concentrations of lead in blood using an innovative Lead Ion Selective Fiber Optode (LISFO) technology. The sensor will require a blood volume less than 200 micro L and will be capable of… more
Abstract:Although many fluorophores exist which are suitable for labeling biomolecules, most of them have absorbance and fluorescence wavelenghts which overlap with naturally occurring biological fluorescence. This complicates their use with optical bio- sensors. A very limited number of commercially… more
Abstract:We will develop an automated instrument for the detection and quantification of Giardia and Cryptoswater sources. The long-term objective is the development and commercialization of a portable, ruggeinstrument which rapidly processes filter concentrated samples without the use of trained… more
Abstract:In spite of the rapid advances in the speed and density of electronic components, a compact hardware package providing a complete real-time solution to vision problems remains beyond the capabilities of currently available technology. This project proposes to develop a smart CCD camera using a… more
Abstract:This proposed project combines ideas from neuro-biological modeling of the cochlea, engineering designs of optimal filters, the theoretical formulation using the calculus of variations, and optimal filtering and control. Several competing formulations will be developed. A potential breakthrough… 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.
