In Surface Plasmon Resonance, collimated white light is shot through a prism where it hits a gold slide treated with biological molecules.
By employing a multiphase complex Fresnel calculation, one can calculate the changes in the index of refraction of ultrathin organic layers on the surface of the slide (2,3).
The agency’s RFP should delineate the needs of the agency for you if you are not already familiar with them.
Assuming you’ve chosen an appropriate grant to apply to, all you have to do is make this connection clear in your proposal.
Unlike primary research articles and posters, proposals do not have any conventional format (such as IMRD).
The most common way to organize a research proposal is through three major sections: The Project Description is the most extensive of the sections, but we will cover each of them in detail in “Organization,” below.
With this aim you are addressing a broader audience, so be sure to express the impacts of your work in broadly accessible language.
Even if your particular results will be small in the scope discovering planets or of curing cancer, their implications should be large.
Microarrays provide a simple, rapid, low-cost fabrication method.
A continual goal of the Corn Group is to create microarrays that require lower concentrations of compounds for detection.
