High Element Gold Nanorod Plasmonic Sensing Array For Harsh Environment Gas Detection Grant Proposal, Brian Janiszweski May 2013

High Element Gold Nanorod Plasmonic Sensing Array For Harsh Environment Gas Detection Grant Proposal, Brian Janiszweski

Nanoscale Science & Engineering (discontinued with class year 2014)

In order to acquire funding for scientific endeavors very specific grant proposal documents must be written and submitted. The following is an example of that. This project was very useful because my peers and I will undoubtedly have to write a grant of some type or another in our future careers. This specific proposal is a mock grant requesting money from the National Science Foundation to fund research into a gas sensor that utilizes gold nanostructures as sensing mechanism. The research done behind this project was performed over three semesters in the lab of Dr. Michael Carpenter form the College ...


Generation Of Saws In Ghz Range For Nanoscale Particle Removal, Leigh Kent Lydecker Iv May 2013

Generation Of Saws In Ghz Range For Nanoscale Particle Removal, Leigh Kent Lydecker Iv

Nanoscale Science & Engineering (discontinued with class year 2014)

In order to do research at CNSE, funding is required. Funding is achieved by submitting a grant proposal stating the background of the problem one hopes to address, a proposed solution, and sufficient information to prove success is achievable. These grant proposals follow a very particular format, which is extremely valuable to be familiar with in the scientific field of study. Therefore, learning to write a grant proposal for some of the work I have done during my undergraduate studies was proved a valuable learning experience. The following grant proposal is based on the work I have done during the ...


Neoadjuvant Therapy For Ovarian Cancer Using Bioglycogentm Nanoparticles Sbir Grant Proposal, Alexander E. Talamo May 2013

Neoadjuvant Therapy For Ovarian Cancer Using Bioglycogentm Nanoparticles Sbir Grant Proposal, Alexander E. Talamo

Nanoscale Science & Engineering (discontinued with class year 2014)

Project Summary Technical Abstract This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project, presented by Talamo Inc., is to test an ovarian cancer therapeutic delivery system, comprised of a nanoscale biocompatible vesicle that carries a bioactive small interfering RNA molecule (siRNA), in vivio in mice. The siRNA has shown to reduce the expression of an enzyme (Sod2) that is highly expressed in multiple ovarian cancer types. The reduced expression of Sod2 will allow the tumor to become increasingly susceptible to chemotherapy agents, while simultaneously diminishing tumor progression. Research has proved that the nanoscale vesicle is non-toxic and in combination with siRNA ...


Advancements Towards Single Site Information Storage And Processing Using Hfo2 Resistive Random Access Memory (Reram), Michael Quinlan Hovish May 2013

Advancements Towards Single Site Information Storage And Processing Using Hfo2 Resistive Random Access Memory (Reram), Michael Quinlan Hovish

Nanoscale Science & Engineering (discontinued with class year 2014)

Resistive Random Access Memory (ReRAM) has attracted much attention among researchers due to its fast switching speeds, lower switching voltages, and feasible integration into industry compatible CMOS processing. These characteristics make ReRAM a viable candidate for next-generation Non- Volatile Memory. Transition-Metal-Oxides have been proven to be excellent materials for ReRAM applications. This work investigates the effect of various, post-deposition anneals (PDA) on the switching parameters of Ni/Cu/HfO2/TiN Resistive Memory Devices (RMD). Results are presented in the form of a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant proposal. The use of the SBIR format emphasizes understanding of the experimental ...


Metal Oxide Nanocomposite Nanoliter Reaction Chamber Fabrication And Applications For Harsh Environment Gas Sensing, Michael C. Briggs May 2013

Metal Oxide Nanocomposite Nanoliter Reaction Chamber Fabrication And Applications For Harsh Environment Gas Sensing, Michael C. Briggs

Nanoscale Science & Engineering (discontinued with class year 2014)

In order to perform research at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, funding for the desired research is required. Undergraduates get around that by working under a graduate student or professor who is currently funded. For those who seek funding, they receive it by submitting a grant proposal stating the motivation for research, the background, and previous research done to support this new endeavor, as well as future research plans that will be possible with funding. These grant proposals follow certain formats depending on where the principal investigator is seeking funding. As part of the honors requirement for the ...
