  2. A Specific Tool for Targeting Neurodegeneration


    DESCRIPTION: (Adapted from the Applicant's Abstract) The Mouse is the species of choice for many neuroscientists because of well-characterized molecular biology and chemistry of its brain, the recent widespread use of transgenic and knockout techniques, and the low cost and rapid breeding of the animal. Mice will become more important upon completion of the sequencing ...

  3. Heavy Power Transmission for Positioning and Actuation

    SBC: Advanced Technologies Group, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    During Phase I, Advanced Turbomachinery Solutions designed andtested a proof-of-concept, reverse rotation capable brush seal.All project objectives were met successfully. The new, hybridseal design can be retrofit into existing gas turbine designs,within the present geometric envelope, utilizing the same orimproved materials. The new seal design has improved leakage andwear characteristics over e ...

  4. Integrated Power Electronics Cooling System Using EHD- Enhanced Microchannel Technology

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ATEC and TA&T, in collaboration with the University of Maryland, will develop a light-weight, low-cost ceramic-based, high heat flux microchannel heat sink device suitable for power electronics cooling applications. The combination of our uniquefabrication process and the incorporation of an active heat transfer enhancement technology(electrohydrodynamics, EHD) will provide an enabling technology ...

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop an efficient heat rejection unit for cryogenic cooling with ultra low parasitic thermal, mechanical, and electromagnetic noise for cooling filters and sensors at HTS conditions. The proposed device will incorporate active micro-scaleheat transfer surfaces, pump(s), and temperature sensors in a single package that will be directly attached to the heat source. EHD micro pumpi ...

  6. Application of Frost Prevention in Food Processing Equipment

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Advanced Thermal and Environmental Concepts, Inc. proposes to utilize electrohydrodynamic (EHD) technology to reduce the amount of frost that forms on cold plates in food freezers. The defrost cycle consumes about 5-15% of the energy to operate an industrial food freezer. During Phase I of our project, we used EHD technology to reduce frost mass by 35% and frost height by as mush as 65% under cert ...

  7. Enhancing in vitro Cartilge Synthesis for Human Therapy


    DESCRIPTION (Provided by Applicant): The long-term objective of this proposal is to generate a cartilage product with mechanical properties comparable to those of adult articular cartilage for the repair of focal articular defects. Based on previous experimental findings, our hypothesis is that mechanical loading will improve the growth of tissue engineered cartila ...

  9. Phase-locked Fiber Lasr Array

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this Phase II effort is to build a rugged, compact optical phased array for coherent addition of laser beams, a crucial building block for multi-kilowatt continuous wave laser devices. This effort builds on the success of the Phase I effortwhere it was shown that an array of electro-optic waveguides in Potassium Titanyl Phosphate (KTP) could be used for phase control. The low-voltag ...
