Abstract:Very compact cathode ray tubes could be fabricated if high voltages presently required for normal operation could be reduced by a factor of ten. This requires a very effective cold cathode. A cold cathode capable of delivering several hundred amps per square centimeter (under ambient conditions… more
Abstract:IT IS WELL-ESTABLISHED THAT POOR THERMAL MANAGEMENT IS A LIMITING FACTOR IN RELIABILITY AND LIFETIME OF ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS IN ADVANCED ELECTRONIC SUBSTRATES OR HEAT SINKS. FUNDAMENTAL PROCESSES FOR PRODUCING A NOVEL DIAMOND FIBER WITH ENHANCED PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ARE BEING STUDIED. THE FIBERS ARE… more
Abstract:IN PHASE I AN IN-SIT METHOD IS PRESENTED FOR ELECTRICALLY HEATING EMITTERS OF MULTI-CELL IN-CORE THERMIONIC FUEL ELEMENTS (TFES). NUCLEAR HEATING IS NOT REQUIRED. THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED BY SUPPLYING PULSES OF ELECTRIC CURRENT TO MOMENTARILY BIAS THE COLLECTORS IN THE TFE WI A SEVERAL-VOLT NEGATIVE… more
Abstract:BERYLLIUM (BE) IS A CANDIDATE MATERIAL FOR DIVERTERS IN NUCLEAR FUSION REACTORS. HOWEVER, THE USE OF BE IS LIMITED BY ITS MODERATE THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY (218 W/M-K) AND BRITTLENESS, BOTH OF WHICH RESULT IN A LOW THERMAL SHOCK RESISTANCE. THE MODERATE THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY AND POOR MECHANICAL STRENGTH… more

Abstract:THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP AND TEST A FOOT FORCE SENSOR WITH TELEMETRY (FFST) SYSTEM TO ACQUIRE, PROCESS AND TRANSMIT FOOT-FLOR INFORMATION DURING HUMAN STANDING, LOCOMOTION, STAIR CLIMBING AND STAIR DESCENT. THIS PORTABLE SYSTEM IS INTENDED FOR AMBULATORY USE. IT WILL MEASURE FOOT CONTACT OCCURRENCE… more
Abstract:Molecular modeling is widespread in a variety of federal, industrial and academic laboratories. Graphical interfaces have become the rule, yet quantum chemistry visualization lags far behind other modeling even though quantum calculations account for almost half of the cpu cycles used. In order to… more
Abstract:NEW LIGHTING TECHNOLOGIES, INCLUDING FIBER OPTICS AND HIGH EFFICIENCY ARC SOURCES, WILL BE APPLIED IN THIS PHASE I PROJECT TO DEVELOP INNOVATIVE APPROACH LIGHTING SYSTEMS (ALS) FOR AIRPORT RUNWAYS. THE GOAL IS TO REPLACE THE LARGE NUMBER OF INDIVIDUAL INCANDESCENT SPOT LIGHTS PRESENTLY IN SUCH… more
Abstract:PRESENT TURBOJET ENGINE CONTROL SYSTEMS, WHICH ARE COMPRISED OF: CONTROLLER, FUEL METERING DEVICE, SENSORS, CONNECTORS, AND HARNESSES ARE THE SINGLE MOST EXPENSIVE SUBSYSTEM ON EXPENDABLE TURBOJET ENGINES.

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.
