Abstract:Proliferation of the weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. Prevention of the spread of nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years, especially since the events on September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. Gamma ray… more
Abstract:New technology is needed for the nondestructive inspection (NDI) of microscopic defects in the thin-wall, titanium alloy hydraulic lines used on aircraft. Once mounted on an aircraft, these tubes are difficult to access externally, making inspection of the tube from the inside the most practical… more
Abstract:Scintillation spectrometers, which consist of inorganic scintillation crystals coupled to photomultiplier tubes, are an important element of nuclear and elementary particle physics experiments. However, the performance of the detection systems used in these experiments is often limited by the… more
Abstract:Although inorganic scintillators are one of the most common detectors used in nuclear and particle physics experiments, the properties of currently available scintillator materials limit the performance and increase the cost of these systems. This project will develop a new class of scintillation… more
Abstract:New technology is needed for the nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of defects in gas turbine engines. While these defects adversely affect hot-section performance and reduce component life, they are difficult to detect and characterize without destructive inspection. The lack of detailed flaw… more
Abstract:Stereochemistry is an essential element of our organic life. Only certain enantiomers are useful as drugs for the human body.

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.
