Abstract:ADAPTATION OF STATE-OF-THE-ART GIGAHERTZ WAFER PROBE TECHNOLOGY (WPT) FOR USE IN DESIGN, TROUBLESHOOTING, AND PRODUCTION OF MULTICHIP MODULES (MCMS) IS PROPOSED. THESE PROBES ARE CURRENTLY CAPABLE OF TESTING SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICES ON WAFERS AT FREQUENCIES UPTO 75 GHZ. PHASE I WILL SHOW THE ELECTRICAL… more
Abstract:TO COMMERCIALIZE HIGH ENERGY DENSITY, RECHARGEABLE LITHIUM (LI) POLYMER ELECTROLYTE-BASED BATTERIES, TWO PROBLEMS MUST BE SOLVED: (1) THE OPTIMIZATION OF THE CHARGE AND MASS TRANSFER PROPERTIES AT THE LI/ELECTROLYTE INTERFACE (OR THE LITHIUM CARBON COMPOSITE/ELECTROLYTE INTERFACE IN THE CASE OF A… more
Abstract:The Navy requires high energy density batteries to power underwater vehicles. The Li/LiX Co O2 cell has been identified as a promising redox couple for this particular application. A formidable stumbling block to the advancement of this technology resides in the inability of non-aqueous electrolytes… more
Abstract:We will synthesize and study fluorescent probes for hypoxic cells. The optical properties of the new compounds will be evaluated. Their ability to discriminate between hypoxic and oxic cells will be tested in cell cultures. These new probes will selectively bind to biomolecules in hypoxic cells.… more
Abstract:We propose to synthesize and test new fluorescent indicators for the lithium ion in aqueous solution. The indicators are designed to be water soluble and to respond selectively to Li+ by undergoing a shift in absorption and emission wavelengths. The proposed compounds will be of primary interest for… more
Abstract:There is a great deal of interest in implantable stimulation electrodes for use in neural prostheses. Such devices would be used to stimulate non-functional neural pathways to allow the recipient to regain control of muscles or improve optic and aural sensory input. Development of these devices has… more
Abstract:The World Health Organization estimates that malaria infects over 800 million people, causes serious disease in over 150 million individuals, and claims 1 to 2 million lives a year. It is the most destructive single infectious agent of mankind in the Third World. Furthermore, it is responsible for… more
Abstract:THERE CURRENTLY IS NO AVAILABLE MECHANICAL METHOD FOR COUNTING EMERGING COLDWATER SPECIES FISH FRY UNDER 15 GRAMS. OFTEN THE FRY COUNTED IN THE EYED EGG STATE APPROXIMATELY THREE WEEKS AFTER THEY ARE COLLECTED. INCUBATION PERIODS ARE DEPENDENT ON WATER TEMPERATURES AND SPECIES AND VARY FROM FOUR TO… more
Abstract:USE OF THE ESCHERICHIA COLI BETA-GLUCURONIDASE GENE (GUS) AS A FUSION MARKER FOR ANALYSIS OF GENE EXPRESSION IN TRANSFORMED PLANTS HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED. THE SYNTHESIS, BY CHEMICAL AND ENZYMATIC METHODS, OF A SERIES OF GLUCURONIC ACID CONJUGATES OF PLANT REGULATORY SUBSTANCES IS BEING DEVELOPED.… more
Abstract:The goal of this project is to develop and evaluate an educational magazine for parents on teenage substance abuse. The publication will use a peer communications approach to inform parents and to constructively involve them in their child's recovery. Special edition issues will address the concerns… more
Abstract:The goal is to develop and evaluate a set of videotapes to teach home study skills to parents and children. Phase I will target middle-school Latino schoolchildren and their families. Videotapes will be produced in Spanish. The materials will be developed in conjunction with specialists and… more
Abstract:This project will produce an interactive videodisc-based (IVD) program for use in health care provider offices. The program will facilitate provision of basic information about anatomy, physiology, and contraception to adolescent patients. The program will use a format that promotes adolescent… more
Abstract:This project will produce an interactive videodisc-based (IVD) system designed to promote adolescent pregnancy prevention through postponement of sexual intercourse, or through the use of effective contraceptive methods for sexually active adolescents. The IVD program will provide a non-threatening… more
Abstract:RESEARCHERS ARE DETERMINING THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A STANDARD COMPUTER MOUSE AS A POSITION TRANSDUCER FOR PHYSICAL SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS. THIS NOVEL USE OF A MOUSE PROVIDES A LOW-COST MEASURING DEVICE THAT IS EASY FOR TEACHERS OR STUDENTS TO INSTALL, USE, AND MODIFY FOR THEIR INDIVIDUAL EXPERIMENTS.… 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.
