Abstract:This STTR Phase II Proposal addresses the need for a low cost acoustic transmitter that combines a power amplifier, control-circuitry and an innovative transducer assembly, all at a low cost. Our approach is to use a cylindrical modal vector projector transducer which becomes part of the housing and… more
Abstract:The combination of X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) with x-ray emission spectroscopy (XES) provides unique diagnostic analysis of both the structure and chemical composition of complex heterogeneous materials. The penetration of X-rays make this method ideal for studying and optimizing material… more
Abstract:The high energy physics (HEP) community, scientific and medical communities and the public at large, will benefit from the availability of high sensitivity photo- sensors with improved spatial and temporal resolution that scaled to large areas, and manufactured in a robust, durable compact package… more
Abstract:Pain is subjective and inherently difficult to quantify, yet appropriate pain management is predicated on adequate assessment. Whenever possible, pain is measured by the patient"s self-report. Patients who cannot reliably self-report are at significantly higher risk for inadequately managed… more
Abstract:This Phase II effort will establish stretchable photovoltaic modules that achieve the key metrics of the program: modules with efficiencies>10%, that sustain elastic deformations>10% (with little or no loss in performance), and that produce output voltages>25 V. In this Phase II effort will… more
Abstract:Wearable human state monitors must be mechanically invisible to greatest degree possible, to maximize comfort, wearability, hygiene and signal quality. These device attributes are aligned with the goal of closely coupling devices to the body for best-quality signal capture and continuous health… more

Transmit/ Receive (T/R)… more
Abstract:The US Army seeks novel engineered polymer nanomaterials with high conductivity and indices of refraction suitable for use in next generation of obscurant materials. In this program Nanotrons Corporation, in collaboration with Professor Zhiyong Gu at NSF Nanomanufacturing Research Center at the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The ongoing launch of next generation AEHF satellites promises significant new protected MILSATCOM capabilities. To allow dismounted forces to leverage this benefit requires very low size, weight, and power (SWaP) AEHF modems capable of operating at up to 256 kbps. ORB Analytics… more
Abstract:The intent of this proposal is to design, and later fabricate, a non-polarizing diffractive beam combining device which meets the stringent requirements of a fiber-laser based Laser Weapon System (LWS). The diffractive beam-combiner is a key element in the system in that provides for combining… more
Abstract:Structural health of concrete-based structures in light water reactors (LWRs) is critical to safe operation of existing and future nuclear power plants.

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.
