Provided in this proposal is a detailed process for engineering an advanced annealing system, that begins with… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of producing a multi-node communication network with low latency for use in the hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) test environment. In the HWIL environment, multi-node connectivity latencies ideally would be at or near zero to prevent the… more
Abstract:Based on our analysis, we believe the biggest technology difficulty will be the pixel layout real estate constraint created by the 20um pixel pitch against the various specification requirements like two color, low flux operation, low noise, high dynamic range, variable gain, integrate while read,… more
Abstract:The feasibility of an in-situ, real-time, non-contact system for optically monitoring temperature in the range 25-800C on Si, GaAs, and CdTe-buffered Si/GaAs substrates will be demonstrated. Real-time measurement of thin-film stress and surface reflectivity during deposition on these substrates,… more
Abstract:A vacuum system with pressures typically below about 10-9 torr is required to mitigate thermal background collisions when producing Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC) and other forms of ultracold matter. Traditional setups contain multiple vacuum chambers, often employ the use of large ion pumps, and… 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.
