1200V SiC power MOSFETs will be studied. The goal of the study is to quantify the appropriate breakdown voltage de-rating needed for SiC MOSFETs subject to cosmic rays. The failure rate of SiC power… more
Abstract:Historically, companies that fabricate structural parts/pieces that include welding as part of their fabrication process have relied on an iterative trial-and-error method to establish manufacturing and fabrication processes for new products. This approach is inefficient. A few US Industries that… more
Abstract:All computing platforms, from handhelds to servers, can achieve superior energy efficiency with better control of the power supply. An integrated voltage regulator would provide improved control, but requires improvements in on-chip inductors for energy storage. This project will develop… more

Abstract:To address the limitations of underwater acoustic wave propagation, we propose a paradigm shift in how information is carried over short-range (tens of meters) acoustic links. We suggest the study -and then development- of a novel carrierless ultrasonic transmission and multiple access technique.… more
Abstract:This project calls for efficient, virtually lossless compression of SAR and camera images. These images are transmitted over a noisy, fading HF radio link, so the compressed bit streams must be error resistant or resilient. We propose efficient source coding (compression) algorithms that have error… more

Commercial inks supplemented with optical markers and proprietary APDN DNA, trademarked… more
Abstract:Stationary movers (wind turbines, etc.) adversely affect the interference rejection, detection and tracking processes of airborne radars. This impact is more severe for surveillance of difficult targets (stealth aircraft, slow moving drones, and surface targets). Wind farms are comprised of multiple… 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.
