Abstract:High-repetition-rate (>1 MHz), high-bunch-charge (up to 1 nC) electron sources, possessing the high gradients at the cathode surface that are needed for low emittance electron bunches, are critical components of next generation light sources, such as energy recovery linacs (ERLs) and free electron… more
Abstract:Polarized electron beams are important to high energy physics and nuclear physics experiments. At present, linear colliders and nuclear science machines use DC polarized sources, as these have been proven to provide polarized beams with good cathode lifetimes and acceptable emittances. However,… more

Abstract:The high degree of heat removal from directed energy (DE) weapons requires a next-generation leap in the performance of the heat transfer device/mechanism and also requires a novel thermo-fluid. Neither is available at this time. Nanofluids and Phase Change Materials (PCM) have been developed to… more
Abstract:Modern turbine engines undergo extensive ground testing in test cells during development. These engines are instrumented with numerous strain gages for high-frequency dynamic strain measurements. Currently, analog signals from these gages are routed out of the test cell to remote data acquisition… more
Abstract:Political, economic, and environmental considerations require that the national dependence on petroleum-based transportation fuels, especially imported oil, be reduced by accelerating the development of domestic renewable alternatives. The United States has the potential to generate, sustainably,… more
Abstract:There is a troubling decline in the number of US citizens training to become scientists and engineers. There are insufficient numbers of qualified science teachers in the middle schools, where interest in science must be kindled. Technology enhanced learning environments (TELEs), which could improve… more
Abstract:The release of volatile organic compounds from industrial processes can have negative impacts on the environment while also posing significant health and safety concerns. In the environment, many of these chemical are considered precursors to ground-level ozone, which is the primary component of… more
Abstract:The Air Force is in need of a system to measure stray laser energy during the open-air test-range firing of high-energy laser weapons such as the Airborne Laser. In Phase I, a laboratory-scale system composed of four hemispherical-imaging laser-scattering detectors was constructed to monitor light… more
Abstract:Radiological sources are in everyday use in numerous industries. Illicit removal of this material from storage could result in construction of a Radiological Dispersal Device or Dirty Bomb. A pervasive means of securing radiological materials and identifying breaches in security is required. Ideally… 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.
