This sophisticated experiment tests the standard model by monitoring the response of neutrons in crossed… more
Abstract:X-ray absorption spectroscopy is a widely used experimental technique for studying the composition and chemistry of materials and is one of the driving forces behind the explosive growth of synchrotron light sources and their increase in brightness by many orders of magnitude. However, advances in… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Radio-frequency (RF) transmitting devices are found nearly everywhere today, ranging from lower-power cell phones to radar equipment to high-energy weapons systems. Accidental exposure of humans to the RF radiation emanating from these devices can cause harmful thermal effects including… more
Abstract:High-Energy Laser (HEL) systems offer advantages of scalability and precision attack unavailable with conventional munitions. Their long-range, speed-of-light-attack capability provides unique benefits for area defense, precision attack, and covert strike, but lasers introduce new elements of… more
Abstract:A reduced hazard antenna design will be developed for deployment on handheld and manpack radios. High voltage protection will be built into the antenna to prevent accidental electrical contact with high voltage power lines up to 25kVDC RMS. Prototypes of the high voltage protection devices will be… more
Abstract:Stratus and stratocumulus clouds with low drop concentration and large drop diameter are scientifically very important, because this is the regime in which drizzle drops are formed. The formation of drizzle can lead to a rapid modification of the cloud droplet size distribution, which in turn has a… more

Abstract:ABSTRACT: Optical refrigeration is currently the only demonstrated all-solid-state cryocooling technology. Optical cryocoolers use laser light to cool small crystal or glass cooling elements. The cooling element absorbs the laser light and reradiates it at higher energy, an example of anti-Stokes… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Performance of space-based digital control systems is limited by the low resolution of available radiation-hardened Analog to Digital Converters (ADCs) and Digital to Analog Converters (DACs). Applied Technology Associates (ATA) proposes to develop a High Resolution ADC on an Application… more
Abstract:High performance angular rate sensors (gyros) with low SWaP, wide operating temperature range, and low cost are required to improve tactical IMUs to strategic grade for long-range weapons guidance without GPS.

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.
