Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will involve research and development of mid-infrared multi-spectral imaging, leading to the first commercial instrument capable of chemical imaging of bio-medical samples. We will develop and demonstrate key technologies to dramatically… more
Abstract:New Jersey Microsystems, Inc proposes to develop an economical thermopile array with sensitivity maximum in the long wave infrared region (LWIR). Current infrared detectors are too expensive to be widely deployed in large numbers. The proposed MEMS technology is simpler, more manufacturable, and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disease: 5.4 million people are currently living with AD in the US, and up to 80 million Americans (over 55 years old) are considered to constitute the riskgroup for AD. In 2011, the annual cost… more
Abstract:Coal-fired utility boilers generate nearly 42% of the electricity in the United States, and are likely to emit more than 1.8 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2013. The current state-of- the-art CO2 capture technology, aqueous amine absorption, requires significant capital and parasitic… more

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.
