Abstract:We propose to build a compact, rugged field-deployable laser photoacoustic spectrometric (LPAS) sensor for continuous, real-time measurements of multiple chemical components, and perform field tests to qualify it for dynamic monitoring of Water Vapor, Carbon Dioxide (12CO2 and 13CO2), Carbon… more
Abstract:MassTech, Inc. proposes to develop a Lidar Wind Profiler for standoff sensing of concurrent 3-component wind velocities using an eye-safe, rugged, reliable optical device. We propose to use a multi-beam lidar system to obtain aerosol backscatter data from the flowfield and to develop a time-lag… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The primary goal of this proposal is to develop a novel fragmentation technique based on interaction of peptide ions with radical beam. We plan to demonstrate that this technique will produce different type of fragment
ions compared to those obtained in… more
Abstract:We propose to build a compact, rugged airborne laser photoacoustic spectrometric (LPAS) sensor based on a tunable mid-IR diode laser for continuous, real-time measurements of water vapor, and perform field tests to qualify it for dynamic airborne in situ monitoring… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a comprehensive mixed-signal design solution with an IP infrastructure, design methodology and design automation tools to enable the use of regular fabrics and mask re-use. The IP infrastructure will consist of metal-reconfigurable analog/RF templates built on top of the… more
Abstract:The Tela Canvas 1D gridded design style will be applied to logic standard cell and SRAM designs. EDA tools to support the design will be developed, and representative layouts will be created using these tools.
Abstract:The NASA Constellation program has a need to non-destructively test (NDT) non-metallic materials (foams, Shuttle Tile, Avcoat, etc) for defects such as delaminations and voids. While imaging systems at terahertz frequencies (0.3 to 3 THz) have been demonstrated for 2D imaging of similar materials,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current LoCs are assay-specific and are custom-built for each single experiment. Performing an experiment requires life scientists to endure the time-consuming process of designing, fabricating, and testing a chip befor
e conducting the actual experiment. This… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project addresses the challenge of achieving variable volume fluid mixing at the microfluidic scale in the context of general-purpose programmable lab-on-a-chip devices (GPLoCs). Directly supporting variable volume mixing is fundamental to… 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.
