The key to this development is to design advanced nanocomposites containing high… more
Abstract:Atmospheric nucleation processes produce large numbers of particles. Once formed, these particles grow rapidly and may alter the formation and lifetime of clouds, and thereby influence the earths radiation balance. Rapid growth of newly formed particles has been observed in many locations, but it is… more
Abstract:The Next Generation Light Source (NGLS) is a transformative new user facility currently in the planning stages at DoE. This facility would use a LINAC to accelerate electrons up to 2.5GeV in order to produce the free-electron lasers (FELs) used for the experiments. After the FELs, an approximately… more
Abstract:Low-mass, ultra-stable particle tracking detectors will be critical elements of upgrades to experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (CERN) and at potential future electron-positron colliders. Mass assigned to support structures, although critical in function, compromises detection through… more
Abstract:Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC)'s are highly susceptible to interlaminar shear failure at elevated temperatures. Therefore, interlaminar properties, critical design limitation of CMC should be assessed accurately with appropriate test methods to ensure overall structural reliability/integrity of… more
Abstract:To produce drop-in biofuel from lignocellulosic biomass materials at prices competitive to fossil fuels requires consistent and reliable solid biomass feeders for pressurized reactors. Experience with coal has not been reliable, and the lower density and more irregular configurations of raw biomass… more
Abstract:Utilizing a dry cooling system for power plant condensers can reduce cooling system water need by over 90%, versus a wet cooling system, thereby reducing permitting and associated water use problems.

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.
