Abstract:The objective of lab-on-chip (LOC) or -TAS is to integrate and perform multiple analytical processes (e.g. sample pretreatment, solution distribution/mixing, separation, detection, etc.) on a microchip platform. So far, most LOC research has been focused on electrophoretic separations. Little has… more
Abstract:Due to their vast diversity and as-yet uncultivated status, detecting, characterizing and quantifying microorganisms in natural settings are of grand challenge, and understanding the mechanistic linkages between microbial diversity and ecosystem functioning and their feedback responses to human… more
Abstract:The interactions among different microbial populations in a community play critical roles in determining ecosystem functioning but very little is known about the network interactions in a microbial community due to the lack of appropriate experimental data and computational analytic tools.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This is an application to test the efficacy of a new approach to cognitive training that is focused on higher level processes such as reasoning and inference. The proposal concerns content of interest to mature adults

The magnetic vectoring drug delivery platform uses external shaped magnetic field… more
Abstract:The ability of humans to make complex decisions is one of the most interesting aspects of human intelligence, especially when judgemental, ambiguous, absense, or erratic knowledge is concerned. This project focuses on the development of a methodology to classify multi-attribute alternatives into… more
Abstract:The Engineering Decision Support Framework (EDSF) will provide an engineer a SEAM based process lifecycle to implement detailed analysis of problem reports, assistance requests, requirements and other issues issues encountered. The engineer will be guided through the creation of criteria,… more
Abstract:The development of micro air vehicles (MAVs) will provide a military capability that has never before been fully realized. Technology developments in areas such as vehicle morphing and energy harvesting will enable greater mission capabilities in terms of intelligence, surveillance and… more
Abstract:As a result of a successful SBIR Phase I effort, Design Intelligence Incorporated, LLC (DII) analyzed and demonstrated the feasibility of innovative perching micro air vehicle (MAV) design concepts using multi-modal energy harvesting techniques. The proposed SBIR Phase II effort will develop an… more

Abstract:The InAs/InGaSb Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) system is developing rapidly and is now finally poised to seriously challenge HgCdTe as the dominant technology for mid- and long-wave detection. SLS structures have a number of practical and theoretical advantages over HgCdTe materials, including… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop device structures for infrared sensor applications using lead chalcogenides. This system has reduced cooling requirements over other high performance infrared materials (such as HgCdTe) resulting from their reduced Auger… more
Abstract:3-C Cattle Feeder, in collaboration with the New Product Development Center [NPDC] at OSU will develop enhanced prototypes to be tested in the field.

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.
