Abstract:Outdoor wood-fired boilers (OWB) are gaining in popularity for heating homes. As energy prices have risen, sales of OWBs are doubling each year because they provide a lower cost solution and use renewable fuel. There is concern about their air emissions, however. OWBs typically emit 18 times the… more
Abstract:The ADMA and PNNL team will pursue this Program with the overall objective of developing a novel membrane device for harvesting of potable water directly from ambient air or other humid gas stream. This new product technology is based on recent inventions made at PNNL about preparation of an ultra… more

The device uses innovative approaches such as ElectRelease epoxy for the releasing mechanism and an Argos-based signaling… more
Abstract:Based on our proprietary fiber technology and extensive experience in fiber laser development, a new single-frequency 2Â?Ãm fiber laser source will be developed. The source includes advanced frequency-locking schemes for both center-line locking and offset-frequency locking, so as to address the… more
Abstract:In this proposal, we propose to demonstrate and build a widely tunable, narrow linewidth, single frequency fiber laser by developing an innovative Er/Yb-co-doped single mode fiber. Such a fiber laser is needed for coherent lidar and interferometric fiber sensing. In Phase I, we will design and… more
Abstract:There is an urgent need to develop a new high-energy 2m ultrafast fiber laser system in order to achieve the optimized efficiency of the ESASE process, which is beneficial in areas ranging from atomic and molecular sciences to chemical, materials, and biological studies. To reach the mid-IR… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: High power fiber lasers have made significant progress in last several years. Several kW of output power has been demonstrated, which enables a wide range of new applications from laser welding, laser cutting, and laser drilling to military defense. While high power fiber lasers have been… more
Abstract:High power fiber lasers have made significant progress in the last several years. Ten kW of diffraction-limited output power at 1 micron from one single mode fiber has been demonstrated. Department of Defense (DoD) needs 100s of kW for missile defense as well as for protection against rockets,… more
Abstract:Our Fused-Realities-Assessments-Modules (FRAM) as self-contained deployable add-ons enables innovative new levels and types of automated quantification strategies for combining human and system performance in real-time for fused performance monitoring and after-action-review purposes. FRAM… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Neurologic disorders frequently affect everyday functioning. However, clinicians and researchers have had limited success in predicting who will, or will not, succeed at real-world tasks, since most assessments rely ontesting from in a controlled environment… more
Abstract:Under this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project, Research Topic 137, "Quantification of Behavioral and Physiological Effects of Drugs Using a Mobile Scalable Device", the contractor shall create and evaluate the Mobile-Alertness-Memory-Profiler (M-AMP); an… more
Abstract:It is well known that the brain is the organ most sensitive to ischemia/hypoxia. Noninvasive continuous monitoring of cerebral blood flow autoregulation, cerebrovascular reactivity and related phenomena such as cerebral vasospams in combat casualties could guide clinicians/medics in adjusting the… more
Abstract:Boron carbide (B4C) ceramic is one of the hardest materials available and, in the form of a fiber composite, it is expected to improve ballistic performance of personal armor and armored vehicles. Due to the nature of its covalent bond, it is very difficult to manufacture full density boron carbide.… 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.
