Abstract:Nickel nanostrands have demonstrated their laboratory scale worth in creating highly conductive and electromagnetically shielding composites, polymers adhesives, coatings and paints. The objectives of this SBIR will be to concentrate on the effort to deliver a commercially viable electromagnetically… more
Abstract:Nuclear fusion has the potential to satisfy the prodigious power that the world will demand in the future, but it has yet to be harnessed as a practical energy source. The main challenge is to identify an economical way to provide for the confinement and heating of the plasma fuel. The massive… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Leishmania are typanosomatid protozoans that are transmitted by phlebotomine sand flies causing leishmaniasis. Leishmaniasis is a zoonosis and affects 12 million people in 88 countries, of which 72 are considered develo
ping countries. It is estimated that 350… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of producing nanostructured metals in a form that can be ultrasonically welded together. Sample coupons will be manufactured and the weld zone structure analyzed to determine the effects of ultrasonic… more
Abstract:Contrasting in vitro and in vivo systems will be used to evaluate the anti-inflammatory/analgesic activity and side-effects of a family of phosphatidylcholine (PC) - associated NSAIDs. Previous studies indicate that PC-NSAIDs have equivalent and/or enhanced therapeutic activity while GI… more
Abstract:Historically, remediation efforts at DOE contaminated sites have relied on numerical models to integrate laboratory and field characterization data, predict the fate and transport behavior of contaminant plumes, design remediation protocols to mitigate contaminant migration, and analyze data from… more
Abstract:NuGen Mobility has demonstrated that their Axial Flux Permanent Magnet motors have high Torque and Power densities, while exhibiting very high efficiencies. In addition, techniques utilized to vary the Rotor-Stator air gap have demonstrated that these hi
Abstract:The phase 2 program will be focused on (1) Optimization of the design of the ultra-linear directional coupler, (2) fabrication of hybrid ultralinear directional coupler modulator chip, (3) demonstration of the increase of the elctro-optic coefficient to more than 300 pm/V and reduction of the drive… 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.
