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:Environmental studies have proven that ammonia (NH3) presents a significant environmental hazard; therefore, accurate monitoring and control of NH3 concentration is required inorder to maintain appropriate air quality levels. Atmospheric ammonia contributes directly and indirectly to acidification,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Strong coupling in ionized plasmas occurs when inter-particle interactions result in correlation energies that are comparable to the mean kinetic energy of the thermal motion of individual particles. Strongly coupled plasmas are known to be present in a number of physical systems… more

Abstract:ABSTRACT: The mission life cycle involves many steps and participants. Each step, from planning to mission briefings, mission execution, and debriefs, requires close collaboration between participants. Even a localized crisis response may involve geographically scattered participants. There is 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

They will add a calibrated load to the device and characterize its efficiency and its cooling speed. Solid-state cryocoolers,… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project entitled ?High Efficiency Robocasting for Ceramic Product Application? is intended to improve a unique additive manufacturing process called robocasting for the large-scale production of next-generation ceramic catalyst supports useful… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Summary/Abstract It has been estimated that in the United States spastic hemiplegia cerebral palsy occurs in 1 out every 1000 births. Affected children typically have one hand with compromised positioning and limited function. While they frequently have the… more
Abstract:Metal casting is an important manufacturing process and most castings are made by small to mid-sized foundries. Sand molded castings account for 85% of all iron and steel castings produced and approximately 5 out of 30 major casting defects including gas blows and sand burn-on are related to poor… 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.
