  1. INVESTIGATION OF AN AUDIO FEEDBACK SYSTEM ALLOWING VISUALLY IMPAIRED ACCESS TO GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACES

    SBC: Atg            Topic: N/A

    THE PROLIFERATION OF GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACES (GUIS) IN PERSONAL COMPUTERS, SUCH AS MICROSOFT WINDOWS AND MACINTOSH, IS A THREAT TO VISUALLY IMPAIRED PERSONS' ABILITY TO USE COMPUTERS BECAUSE GUIS REPRESENT INFORMATION ICONICLY AND SPATIALLY, AS WELL AS TEXTUALLY. THE GUIS VISUAL ORIENTATION MAKES GUIS DIFFICULT FOR THE VISUALLY IMPAIRED TO ACCESS THROUGH TRADITIONAL ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGIES. WE PR ...

  4. Negative Electron Affinity Diamond Vacuum Collector Transistor

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

    SEMICONDUCTING DIAMOND HAS MANY NOVEL PROPERTIES, MOST NOTABLY A STABLE NEGATIVE ELECTRON AFFINITY SURFACE. CONDUCTION BAND ELECTRONS ARE READILY EMITTED FROM A NEGATIVE ELECTRON AFFINITY (NEA) MATERIAL BECAUSE THE BULK CONDUCTION BAND LIES ABOVE THE VACUUM LEVEL. IN THE PHASE I PROGRAM WE WILL CONSTRUCT A NEGATIVE ELECTRON AFFINITY DIAMOND VACUUM COLLECTOR TRANSISTOR AND INVESTIGATE THE PERFORMAN ...

  5. Low Valent Titanium Source Reagents for MOCVD of Titanium Nitride

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

    TITANIUM NITRIDE (TiN) IS RAPIDLY BECOMING AN IMPORTANT MATERIAL AS A BARRIER LAYER IN VLSI DRAMs, AS AN ANTIREFLECTION COATING AND AS A "GLUE" LAYER BETWEEN NOBLE METALS AND SILICON DIOXIDE IN BOTH MEMORY AND LOGIC DEVICES. TYPICALLY, THIN FILMS OF TiN ARE DEPOSITED BY PHYSICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION METHODS, BUT AS DEVICE FEATURE SIZES SHRINK TO ULSI DIMENSIONS, CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (CVD) WILL BE ...
