Abstract:We propose to research in-line real time wafer level monitoring techniques for use in development of new semiconductor processes and for the monitoring of semiconductor process equipment and techniques as a process control function. All of these techniques will monitor actual reliability failure… more
Abstract:Doppler velocity flow detectors have been used for years but cannot be applied directly to the aorta or pulmonary artery in closed chest patients, and are not accurate because of that. While access to the great vessels is easy during open-heart surgery many patients would benefit by doctors having… more
Abstract:THE GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A RIBONUCLEASE PROTECTION/MISMATCH ASSAY, WHICH WILL ALLOW THE DETECTION OF ESSENTIALLY ALL SINGLE-BASE MUTATIONS. SUCH AN ASSAY WOULD PROVIDE AN INEXPENSIVE AND WIDELY APPLICABLE METHOD FOR SCREENING FOR GENETIC DISEASES, DETECTING MUTATIONS IN ONCOGENES AND… more
Abstract:THE GOAL IS TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF INDIVIDUALS WITH DEVELOPMENTAL OR OTHER DISABILITIES WHO HAVE ACCESS TO COMPUTERS AND COMMERCIALLY OFF-THE-SHELF SOFTWARE. THREE DEFICIENCIES IN CURRENTLY AVAILABLE SYSTEMS ARE A) MOST SYSTEMS DEMAND THE USE OF HANDS; B) THE RELATIVE INABILITY OF HEALHT-CARE… more
Abstract:THE ADOPTION AND FOSTER CARE ANALYSIS AND REPORTING SYSTEM (AFCARS) IS NATIONAL REPORTING SYSTEM WHICH IS CURRENTLY UNDER DEVELOPMENT. A WIDE RANGE OF PROBLEMS WILL BE EXPERIENCED BY STATES IN COMPLYING WITH THE COMPLEX AFCARS REQUIREMENTS. TO ASSIST STATES IN MEETING THESE REQUIREMENTS, FLEXIBLE,… more
Abstract:Measuring temperature in specimens being heated by electromagnetic energy requires the use of special probes. The temperature probes must be specially designed to minimize electromagnetic field perturbations. The probes in widespread usage in research institutes are thermistor sensors with very high… more
Abstract:THE PURPOSE OF THE INVESTIGATION IS TO PERFECT A NOVEL OPTICAL DEVICE THAT MEASURES THE OXYHEMOGLOBIN SATURATION (%HBO2), TOTAL HEMOGLOBIN CONCENTRATION (THB), AND OXYGEN CONTENT OF A BLOOD SAMPLE IN A GLASS CAPILLARY TUBE OF THE TYPE COMMONLY USED FOR MICROHEMATOCRIT DETERMINATIONS. WE HAVE ALREADY… more
Abstract:This is part of a program to develop gene medicines for treatment of dermatoses such as psoriasis. We will utilize a novel DNA expression vector (HK1) capable of directing high-level tissue-specific expression from keratinocytes in the epidermis. The HK1 vector contains transcription and translation… more
Abstract:An opportunity exists to develop a comprehensive model of the kinematics of a short-arm centrifuge, models of human physiologic response during centrifugation, and evaluation of techniques for balancing the torques created during operation of a short-arm centrifuge. The proposed Phase I program will… more
Abstract:An opportunity exists to develop a comprehensive model of the Aviator's Breathing System (ABS) which mathematically describes the dynamics of respiratory gas exchange in breathing systems for high performance military aircraft. The proposed Phase I development program will include a detailed review… more
Abstract:The design and layout of the bare base requires the assimilation and analysis of data from several sources of guidance. Without full consideration of this guidance, bare base planning may become time-consuming and inconsistent. The development of personal computer based bare base planning model… more
Abstract:A JUNE 1991 ESTIMATE SHOWS THAT MAGNITUDE OF THE AMERICAN AIDS CRISIS TO BE 115,984 DEAD, 182,834 SUFFERING WITH AIDS, AND 1 MILLION HIV POSITIVE (CDC). INTRAVENOUS (IV) DRUG USERS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AS MAJOR VECTORS FOR THE SPREAD OF AIDS IN THE GENERAL POPULATION BECAUSE OF SHARING AND RE-USE OF… more
Abstract:We propose the application of newly developed data processing techniques to ERP time series obtained under laboratory conditions in which subjects are engaged in learning tasks of varying degrees of difficulty. The techniques will enable us to further develop and refine quantitative measures of… more
Abstract:An observer of a continuously moving visual scene has induced a reflexive eye movement called nystagmus. Nystagmus signals are termed optokinetic (vestibular) if induced by visual stimulation (head rotation or other stimulation of the vestibular system). These responses are important in flight and… more
Abstract:The long-term objective is to develop a microcomputer-based education product for youth, tentatively titled MYFITE for Life¿ (MYFITE¿), to give youth a "fighting chance" in substance use and abuse prevention and treatment. MYFITE is based on the Fitness Intervention Training (FIT) model, a "life… more
Abstract:THE OBJECTIVE IS A COMPACT, RELIABLE AND INEXPENSIVE METHOD FOR SAMPLING LARGE VOLUMES OF AIR RAPIDLY TO DETERMINE THE CONCENTRATION OF AIRBORNE EXPLOSIVES. THE APPROACH INVOLVES THE USE OF A MULTIVORTEX PRECIPITATOR CAPABLE OF EFFICIENTLY REMOVING FINE PARTICULATES AND LARGE MOLERCULES FROM THE AIR… more
Abstract:HyperBaric Oxygen (HBO) medical treatment therapy is performed on humans in presurrized chambers. The chambers are operated by a trained technician that directs the chamber systems fro a console. The operator monitors the chamber parameters, the patient's physical condition and controls the… 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.
