Abstract:The project aims to grow device-quality InxGa1-xN, an important semiconductor because the band gap can be shifted widely by varying x, using a new form of plasma sputtering, Biased-Target Deposition (BTD). The major objectives are to grow x > 0.05 material on sapphire at 600-800oC (standard) and… more
Abstract:We propose to test a new sputtering method, Biased Target Deposition (BTD), for growth of polycrystalline VO2 thin films. The BTD method has been shown to be more stable and flexible for reactive deposition than previously used techniques, and we test whether VO2 can be driven into different… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Lck is a Src family non-receptor tyrosine kinase expressed by T lineage lymphocytes. In T cells, Lck plays an essential role in the generation of antigen-mediated activation signals. Since T cell activation is central
to mounting immune response, inhibition of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): SBIR grant support is being sought by 20/20 GeneSystems, Inc. (20/20), a small biotech company, to help us advance what we believe will become the first blood test to be routinely employed to aid in the early detection
of head and neck cancer. Despite recent… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Approximately 135,000 new cases of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are diagnosed each year in the USA, yet only 20%-25% of those patients will be diagnosed at a sufficiently early stage to be cured by surgical or oth
er procedures. When used in concert with… more
Abstract:Zybek Advanced Products has proven the ability to produce industrial quantities of lunar simulant materials, including glass, agglutinate and melt breccias. These are critical components in the NU-LHT-series and OB1 lunar simulants. The feed stock for this simulant is a mining industry by-product.… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II seeks to develop a surface texturing technique that will significantly improve sunlight coupling into various types of solar cells. Surface textures are mandatory to record efficiencies in solar cells. The Omni-Directional Antireflective… more
Abstract:In typical, multi-organizational networking environments, it is difficult to define and maintain a uniform authentication scheme that provides users with easy access to required information while maintaining the security and integrity of the underlying information. This proposal offers a unique and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of the present work is to demonstrate a label-free multiplexed immunoassay platform liver disease diagnosis. The method is to integrate multiple tests for serum antigens and antibodies onto a single disposable
chip that could be used with the instrument… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose the development of a single-chip, multiplexed, label-free platform for Alzheimer's disease diagnosis and monitoring of protein markers in the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF). The Spectral Reflectance Imaging Bio
sensor is a label-free protein array… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Important advances have been made in the treatment of viral infections over the last two decades, especially with the extensive availability of drugs to treat HIV infection, but there is a need to develop new drugs part
icularly with the challenges facing HIV… more
Abstract:Memory overwriting vulnerabilities (buffer overflow, format string,
double free, integer overflow, etc.) continue to plague commercial and government software, providing avenues for attackers to gain unauthorized control over computer systems. Testing tools are needed that will find vulnerabilities… more
Abstract:Many software defenses against reverse engineering, piracy, and tampering rely on disabling the software when such attacks are detected. The proposed research makes innovative use of proces-level software virtualization on a per-application basis to defeat such attacks without disabling the software… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Our aim is to discover novel safety assessment candidates (pre-clinical compounds) for the treatment of cancer by targeting the receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK), anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK). It is now proven that ALK
has a widespread pathogenic involvement in… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project seeks to demonstrate the high-density feasibility of a novel memory, which has both volatile and non-volatile functionality. Such memory combines the non-volatile memory's ability to retain information in the absence of power (such as Flash… more
Abstract:The objective of the proposed effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of the scalable 3D display technology proposed by Zebra Imaging to produce realistic auto-viewable 3D images for Air Force applications related to air, space and cyberspace. A display producing such holographic images can provide… 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.
