Specific aims of this proposal include: complete… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long term objective of this project is to develop, validate and commercialize wireless, head mounted, turnkey, EEG/EMG systems with an integrated biosensor for rats and mice. A further objective is to develop a 76 uM glucose biosensor for direct measurement… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This application is a resubmission of Application 1 R43 NS050935-01 The team of Pinnacle Technology, Inc. and Dr. George Wilson of the University of Kansas will design and build a wireless, fast-scan cyclic voltammetry (FSCV) system to monitor monoamine… more
Abstract:The effectiveness of the alkali, surfactants, and polymers used in tertiary recovery in oil reservoirs is heavily dependent upon the chemical composition and spatial distribution of shale bodies within the reservoir rock. Seismic data gathered at the surface produces only an "averaged" response to… more
Abstract:There is currently limited access to supermarkets for small family farms to sell their locally grown and raised farm fresh foods. The learning curve for small-scale family farms to meet the requirements of retail supermarket chains is long and demanding. However, there is an increasing number of… more
Abstract:Software Outfitters, Inc., in collaboration with the University of Kansas, proposes to evaluate the efficacy and feasibility of a web-based data analysis and educational intervention selection product, called the eServe Initiative, which would be designed to support teachers, building administrators… more
Abstract:Surfaces Research proposes a Phase II STTR program to conduct further research with ionic liquid lubricants based upon our successful Phase I research. We have assembled a team for fundamental surface science and chemistry, tribology, microtribology, and molecular modeling to conduct this research.… more
Abstract:Surfaces Research is developing a top-treat to enhance MIL-PRF-2104 diesel engine oil with additional preservative properties of MIL-PRF-21260E. There are many logistic and economical advantages to the Army with this single oil approach. Our lubricant effectively eliminates preservative oil changes… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I Project seeks to develop an innovative method for removing resist from semiconductor wafers. The Microcavitation Resist Remover will help enable the low-k integration critical to the next generation of faster chips. Microcavitation will be a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This is Phase I of an SBIR grant application.

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.
