Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. ON-LINE PROCESS CONTROL SENSOR FOR PARTICLE SIZE

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A PARTICLE SIZE SENSOR IS REQUIRED FOR ON-LINE PROCESS CON- TROL IN A METAL POWDER FORMING FACILITY. INSTRUMENTS AVAILABLE COMMERCIALLY FOR THIS SENSING RELY ON MEASUREMENTS OF LIGHT SCATTERING AT VERY SMALL ANGULAR INCREMENTS. IT IS PROBABLE THAT THE HIGHLY TURBULENT ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THE METAL POWDERS ARE FORMED WILL PRODUCE SUFFICIENT ANGULAR DE-VIATION OF THE PROBING LIGHT BEAM TO INVALIDAT ...

  2. THERMOSET PLASTICS FROM CELLULOSE

    SBC: Springborn Materials Science            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH EFFORT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING NEW THERMOSETTING PLASTICS BASED UPON CELLULOSE FROM WOOD. THIS PHASE I EFFORT WILL EXPLORE CROSSLINKING AGENTS SUCH AS DIEPOXIDES AND DIISOCYANATES ANDDETERMINE THEIR RELATIVE ABILITY TO SWELL AND CROSSLINK BOTHTHE AMORPHOUS AND CRYSTALLINE PORTIONS OF CELLULOSE. THE EXPOXIDES AND ISOCYANTATES TO BE INVESTIGATED ...

  3. ENHANCING SWINE PROFITABILITY WITH A MULTI-FARM FINANCIAL/BIOLOGIC DATABASE

    SBC: Swine Graphics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SWINE PRODUCERS AND SWINE INDUSTRY CONSULTANTS MUST DETERMINE WHAT AREAS OF SWINE PRODUCTION ARE LEAST EFFICIENT ECONOMICALLY IN ORDER TO REGAIN PROFITABILITY. BYDEVELOPING AN INTEGRATED, DETAILED FINANCIAL/BIOLOGIC DATABASE, SWINE PRODUCERS WILL BE ABLE TO DETERMINE INEFFICIENCIES IN THEIR OWN BUSINESSES THROUGH ANALYSIS OF THEIR DATA, AND THEY WILL BE ABLE TO PLAN THE MOST EFFECTIVE SOLUTION BY ...

  4. A USER-FRIENDLY VOICE INTERACTIVE LEARNING AID FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH HANDICAPS (VILAH)

    SBC: Technology International Incorporated of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    MANY INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES WOULD BENEFIT FROM IMPROVED METHODS FOR VOICE INPUT INTO, AND VOICE OUTPUT FROM, MICROCOMPUTERS. THE ADVANTAGES OF COMPUTERIZED VOICE OUTPUT FROM PRINTED MATERIAL FOR BLIND OR VISUALLY IMPAIRED INDIVIDUALS IS OBVIOUS. VERY OFTEN, INDIVIDUALS WITH LANGUAGE-LEARNING DISABILITIES FALL INTO THIS CATEGORY. THEADVANTAGES OF SYNTHESIZED SPEECH IS OBVIOUS FOR INDIVIDUALS ...

  5. ON-LINE PURIFIERS FOR CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    THE MATERIALS USED IN THIN-FILM PHOTOVOLTAIC CELLS AND MANY OTHER SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICES ARE FREQUENTLY GROWN USING CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (CVD) OR OTHER VAPOR-BASED PROCESSES. MANY OF THE PROCESS GASES USED, FOR EXAMPLE, ARSINE, PHOSPHINE, AMMONIA, DIBORANE, AND SILANE, ARE HIGHLY REACTIVE. CONTAMINATION, CHEMICAL OR PARTICULATE, OF THESE REACTIVE GASES SERIOUSLY INTERFERES WITH DEVICE PERFORMA ...

  6. INFRARED DETECTORS USING HIGH CRITICAL TEMPERATURE GRANULAR JOSEPHSON JUNCTIONS

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE RECENT DISCOVERY OF HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING MATERIALS HAS LED TO RENEWED INTEREST IN THE APPLICATION OF SUPERCONDUCTIVITY. THE NEW CERAMIC SUPERCONDUCTORS OFFER THE OPPORTUNITY OF USING THESE MATERIALS AS DETECTORS OF INFRARED RADIATION MORE CONVENIENTLY THAT THE OLDER, CLASSICAL SUPERCONDUCTORS. THE LARGER ENERGY GAP OF THESE NEW HIGH CRITICAL TEMPERATURE (T(C)) MATERIALS ALSO PROVID ...

  7. ADVANCED COAL LIQUEFACTION BY TEMPERATURE STAGED REACTORS

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IT HAS BEEN DETERMINED IN BENCH SCALE AND PILOT SCALE COAL LIQUEFACTION EXPERIMENTS THAT A PRETREATMENT AT MODERATE TEMPERATURES PRIOR TO LIQUEFACTION CAN SUBSTANTIALLY IMPROVELIQUEFACTION YIELDS AND QUALITY. HOWEVER, THERE IS LITTLE BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF THE PROCESSES THAT GIVE RISE TO THE OBSERVED PHENOMENA. THIS PROJECT SUGGESTS THE IDENTIFICATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF THE PRELIQUEFACTION CHEMIS ...
