Patterned sapphire substrates have been found to improve the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Approximately 1.6 million people live with HIV/AIDS in North America; 34 million people worldwide. The HIV/AIDS epidemic is caused by a rapidly replicating retrovirus that undergoes multiple mutations, making it extremely challenging to successfully treat.… more
Abstract:The DOE supports development of technologies essential to experiments in nuclear physics. The channel count of modern nuclear physics experiments has risen into thousands. There is need for cost effective, high density data acquisition (DAQ) systems with many thousands of channels. Our approach… more
Abstract:The proposed SkySight Technologies Quick Release Connector will independently detect an unexpected mechanical load on the power distribution line.
The compact and lightweight SkySight Quick Release Connector uses existing methods and hardware to integrate into the infrastructure, and no
Abstract:The innovation is a new method for forecasting the demand for spare and service parts whose demand is intermittent or slow moving. Intermittent demand consists mostly of zero values, with nonzero demands of random sizes mixed in at random times, making it extremely difficult to forecast. The… more
Abstract:In this project we propose to develop, test and demonstrate the potential of an Active Quiet Pillow for reducing interior noise in helicopter medical evacuation scenarios using numerical simulation and experimental testing. The potential of the Pillow design is expected to reduce the interior noise… more
Abstract:An effective approach to addressing the needs of the American energy market includes both the exploration and implementation of alternative energy sources along with improvements in the efficiency. Thus far, a relatively untouched sector of energy consumption has been the efficiency of household and… more
Abstract:In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and partners are developing high efficiency, switchable RF filters. The technical approach is based on thin films of paraelectric BaxSr1-xTiO3 and SrTiO3, which can show piezoelectric behavior under an applied DC bias. When… more
Abstract:Thermoelectric devices offer a simple and reliable means to convert radioisotope thermal energy into useable electrical power.Present thermoelectric devices based on bulk materials are limited by low conversion efficiencies, due to fundamental limitation of identifying materials with both a high… more
Abstract:GaN-based devices are currently grown on foreign substrates such as SiC and Al2O3, due to the lack of high quality GaN substrates. It is well known that the use of foreign substrates limits device performance due to a high dislocation density in the GaN film. Structured Materials Industries, Inc.… more
Abstract:SoarTech will research technologies to address a fundamental problem in current unmanned vehicle operations reduction in the amount of operator attention required to control a team of unmanned vehicles (UVs). We call our approach Lucid, and the Lucid system will monitor the mission and behavior of… more
Abstract:Intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs) hold the promise of dramatically decreasing the cost of training while also providing consistent, formalized instruction with automated trainee-assessment tools. However, the adoption of ITSs has been limited because: (1) most ITS systems are developed for… more
Abstract:Traumatic brain injury is a leading cause of disability in the United States. A challenging TBI symptom to treat is impairment of executive functions, the high-order brain processes that let people make plans and carry them out. Impaired executive function challenges college students as they try 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.
