1. Chemical and thermophysical characterization of an algae-based hydrotreated renewable diesel fuel
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/8/2014
Authors: Peter Yaw-Ming Hsieh, Jason A Widegren, Tara J Fortin, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: Second-generation renewable fuels are synthesized through biochemical and thermochemical processes from non-food biomass feedstock. The resultant fuels are similar to aliphatic synthetic fuels produced through the Fischer-Tropsch process, which conta ...

2. A Quantitative Study of Nanoparticle Release from Nanocoatings Exposed to UV Radiation
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/7/2014
Authors: Li Piin Sung, Deborah L Stanley, Justin M Gorham, Savelas A Rabb, Xiaohong Gu, Lee Lijian Yu, Tinh Nguyen
Abstract: Nanoparticles are increasingly used in polymer coatings (i.e., nanocoatings) to improve multiple properties of traditional coatings such as mechanical, electrical, gas barrier, and UV resistance. These high performance nanocoatings are often used in ...

3. Composite thermophysical property characterization of hydrotreated renewable and Fischer-Tropsch synthetic fuels
Topic: Energy
Published: 3/16/2014
Authors: Peter Yaw-Ming Hsieh, Jason A Widegren, Tara J Fortin, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The rising cost of petroleum is driving the development of alternative hydrocarbon fuels for transportation. Hydrotreated renewable fuels and Fischer-Tropsch synthetic fuels are promising alternatives to conventional petroleum, and are chemically sim ...

5. Applications of Surface Metrology in Firearm Identification
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/8/2014
Authors: Xiaoyu A Zheng, Johannes A Soons, Theodore Vincent Vorburger, Jun-Feng Song, Thomas B Renegar, Robert Meryln Thompson
Abstract: Surface metrology is commonly used to characterize functional engineering surfaces. The technologies developed offer opportunities to improve forensic toolmark identification. Toolmarks are created when a tool comes into contact with a surface an ...

6. Applications of Surface Metrology in Toolmark Identification
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/8/2014
Authors: Xiaoyu A Zheng, Johannes A Soons, Theodore Vincent Vorburger, Jun-Feng Song, Thomas B Renegar, Robert Meryln Thompson
Abstract: Surface metrology is commonly used to characterize functional engineering surfaces. The technologies developed offer opportunities to improve forensic toolmark identification. In 2009, a report by the National Academies called into question, amon ...

7. Mapping the Local Photo-Electronic Properties of Polycrystalline Solar Cells through High Resolution Laser-Beam-Induced Current Microscopy
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/1/2014
Authors: Marina Soares Leite, Maxim Abashin, Henri J Lezec, Anthony G Gianfrancesco, Albert A. Talin, Nikolai B Zhitenev
Abstract: To boost the efficiency of thin film polycrystalline solar cells that are microscopically inhomogeneous, it is imperative to understand how the grain cores (GCs) and grain boundaries (GBs) within these materials affect its overall electronic properti ...

8. Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotube Layer-by-Layer Coatings With a Novel Trilayer Structure to Reduce Foam Flammability
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/29/2013
Authors: Rick D Davis, Yeon Seok Kim, Amanda A Cain, Jaime C. Grunlan
Abstract: The research presented here is the first report of fabricating multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) based thin coatings on polyurethane foam (PUF) using Layer-by-Layer assembly, and using MWCNTs to reduce the flammability of PUF. The (440.6 ± 47.1) ...

9. Analyzing a Co-Polymer Aramid Fiber for Use in Soft Body Armor
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/25/2013
Authors: Walter G McDonough, Jae Hyun Kim, Nathanael A Heckert, Amanda Lattam Forster, Scott A Wight, Joy P Dunkers, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: Since the well-publicized failure of body armor used by a police officer, it has become imperative that the long-term properties and performance of new fibers being considered for use be understood. The range of interest is from the molecular proper ...

10. Validation Tests for the Congruent Matching Cells (CMC) Method Using Cartridge Cases Fired With Consecutively Manufactured Pistol Slides
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/17/2013
Authors: Wei Chu, Mingsi Tong, Jun-Feng Song
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed the NIST Ballistics Identification System (NBIS) based on three-dimensional (3D) topography measurements on correlation cells [1]. The Congruent Matching Cells (CMC) method is u ...
