Abstract:With rising energy costs and finite supply, Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) are becoming increasingly important in the United States, particularly in regard to buildings, which account for 40% of the total energy used in America. Currently, energy use in buildings can be assessed through… more
Abstract:Traditional cooking practices, prevalent in many developing nations, emit massive quantities of black carbon and other pollutants through the inefficient combustion of biomass fuels. As a result, improved cook stoves are being introduced worldwide as a fuel-efficient and cleaner-burning solution.… more
Abstract:Oil extraction generates an estimated 2.4 billion gallons/day of produced water, which is brought to the surface together with oil and contains contaminants such as oil, drilling additives, metal ions and particulates which must be treated before reuse or disposal. Membrane separation, specifically … more
Abstract:As outlined in the document Technical Topics Descriptions, FY 2012, Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs, July 2011, page 137: Sn-117m has gotten a lot of interest in the last few years. It has favorable nuclear properties for both imaging… more
Abstract:Synchrotron-based science has had a great scientific impact and will continue to have great impact going forward. In spite of the large investment in the 3rd generation light sources, most beam lines do not preserve the sources phase profile or brightness all the way to the sample. For these high… more
Abstract:The U.S Department of Energy is seeking a sensitive and robust sensor that can perform real-time, in situ monitoring of hexavalent chromium in groundwater wells at environmental legacy sites, and that is capable of operating for extended periods without maintenance. Recent laboratory tests have… more
Abstract:There is an urgent need for domestic sources of low-cost, large-scale renewable biofuels. Micro-algae are one of most promising sources of renewable energy, with high potential per-acre oil productivity, minimal competition with arable land and limited freshwater supplies, and efficient recycling of… more
Abstract:Most schemes currently proposed for carbon sequestration rely on storing CO2 in a supercritical state in deep saline reservoirs where buoyancy forces drive the injected CO2 upward in the aquifer until a seal is reached. The permanence of this type of sequestration depends entirely on the long-term… more
Abstract:The interconnected consequences of the national energy strategy compel us to design energy systems to operate at higher temperatures to achieve greater efficiency and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. The success of various promising clean coal technologies will rely in part on sensors that can… more
Abstract:The native format of netCDF generated from regional climate models (RCMs) is not readily accessible or useable by the general public who may not have analytical tools to plot, visualize, or analyze the data. In response to this need, the overall long term objective of this study is to make high… more
Abstract:We realized in discussions with SLAC engineering that a serious problem lies in the antiquated technology of the S-Band RF loads. The load components on the current SLAC system were designed, in some cases, 40+ years ago to terminate 8-10 MW peak power using 200 micrometers of coated… more
Abstract:High current z-pinches are an excellent way to produce high-energy plasmas as radiation sources for Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF) and x-ray radiation effect studies. High current pulsed power z-pinch machines for these applications have a challenge that limits their ultimate capability, namely… more
Abstract:Marker-assisted breeding programs for new biofuel crops have the potential to rapidly accelerate crop development, but they are ham- strung by the slow pace at which new phenotypes can be evaluated for composition.

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.
