Abstract:The effectiveness of synchrotron radiation science has been hindered by the limited availability of advanced diagnostics. In many cases, the capability to produce photon fluxes has outpaced the ability to detect and measure the resultant photons. Synchrotron applications are becoming more… more
Abstract:Modern synchrotrons are providing higher beam currents and demanding more RF power from the superconducting cavities. The maximum RF power available without beam is limited by the maximum power rating of the WR1800 waveguide RF ceramic window used in the fundamental power coupler. Operation at… more
Abstract:Because of the need to operate in a space-charge-dominated regime, the generation and preservation of femtosecond electron beams is a major challenge for chemical dynamics and accelerator technology R & amp;D. Electrons from a photo-cathode radio frequency (RF) gun can be used as scattering … more
Abstract:Photocathodes have been the focus of intense experimental and theoretical development for many decades, and their use in RF photoinjectors has been indispensible for the evolution of light sources such as free-electron lasers. At present there is a significant science and technology gap for… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A direct sensing of stress and fatigue and their visualization is very attractive and has been pursued for decades. Prognostica is a new and unique tracking, sensing, and prognosticating technology that allows for exactly that. Based on the results achieved in the Phase I effort it is… more

Chloroperoxidase is capable of regio- and enantioselective oxygenations and halogenations of organic… more
Abstract:Bacterial enteric pathogens causing travelers"diarrhea (TD) in developing countries include enterotoxigenic E. coli (50%), Camplyobacter jejuni, Shigella sonnei and Shigella flexneri, while Norovirus is a common viral cause. High risk regions for TD include areas where US service members are… more
Abstract:Agave BioSystems, with their academic partners at the Mote Marine Laboratory, proposes to develop probiotic pharmaceuticals from indigenous commensal microbes to enhance gastrointestinal health in the bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus). The dolphin gastrointestinal microbiome will be… more
Abstract:Wound management becomes increasingly challenging due to bacterial infections, especially from epidemic drug-resistant strains. To address this problem, Agave BioSystems proposes to develop a RANT (Rapidly Adaptable Nanotherapeutics) breadboard system built upon the modules successfully established… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims at developing a targeted semantic processing framework for the analysis of online conversations.

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.
