1. Comparison of Registration Methods for Mobile Manipulators
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 9/16/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Roger Eastman, Tsai Hong Hong, Omar Aboul Enein, Steven Anthony Legowik, Sebti Foufou
Abstract: Mobile manipulators can be effective, efficient and flexible for automation on the factory floor but will need safety and performance standards for wide adoption. This paper looks at a specific area of performance standards [1] for docking and workpi ...

2. Evaluating the Sustainability Performance of Alternative Residential Building Designs using the BIRDS Low-Energy Residential Database
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1205
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/10/2016
Authors: Joshua D Kneifel, Eric G O\'Rear, David Harry Webb

3. Reversible adsorption kinetics of near surface dimer colloids
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/2/2016
Authors: Paul Salipante, Steven D Hudson
Abstract: We investigate the effect of shape on reversible adsorption kinetics using colloidal polystyrene dimers near a solid glass surface as a model system. The interaction between colloid and wall is tuned using electrostatic, depletion, and gravity f ...

4. Mobile Manipulator Performance Measurement Towards Manufacturing Assembly Tasks
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/13/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Sebti Foufou, Steven Anthony Legowik, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: Mobile manipulator performance measurement research is relatively minimal as compared to that of robot arms. Measurement methods, such as optical tracking systems, are useful for measuring the performances of mobile manipulators, although at a much ...

5. Survey of Research for Performance Measurement of Mobile Manipulators
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 6/30/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong, Jeremy A Marvel
Abstract: This survey provides the basis for developing research in the area of mobile manipulator performance measurement, an area that has relatively few research articles, as com-pared to other mobile manipulator research areas. The survey begins with a li ...

6. Low Temperature Ionic Conductivity of an Acceptor Doped Perovskite Part II: Impedance Spectroscopy of Single Crystalline BaTiO3
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 6/16/2016
Author: Russell A Maier
Abstract: Low temperature conductivity mechanisms are identified in acceptor doped BaTiO3 single crystals equilibrated and quenched from high temperature under different oxygen partial pressures. A range of acceptor ionization states are quenched into sam ...

7. NIST Recommended Practice Guide Fractography of Ceramics and Glasses
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 960-16e2
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 5/11/2016
Author: George David Quinn
Abstract: Fractography is a powerful tool for the analysis of fractured glasses and ceramics. It is applicable to fractures created under controlled conditions in the laboratory and to component failures in service. Fractography can identify the cause of fai ...

8. In-Situ Metrology to Characterize Water Vapor Delivery during Atomic Layer Deposition
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 5/2/2016
Authors: Tariq Ahmido, William Andrew Kimes, Brent A Sperling, Joseph Terence Hodges, James E Maslar
Abstract: Water is often employed as the oxygen source in metal oxide atomic layer deposition (ALD) processes. It has been reported that variations in the amount of water delivered during metal oxide ALD can impact the oxide film properties. Hence, one con ...

9. Bottom-Up Colloidal Crystal Assembly with a Twist
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 4/28/2016
Authors: Nathan Mahynski, Lorenzo Rovigatti, Christos Likos, Athanassios Panagiotopoulos
Abstract: Globally ordered colloidal crystal lattices have broad utility in a wide range of optical and catalytic devices, for example, as photonic bandgap materials. However, the self-assembly of stereospecific structures is often confounded by polymorphi ...

10. Mobile Robot and Mobile Manipulator Research Towards ASTM F45 Standards Developments
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 4/21/2016
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, Tsai Hong Hong
Abstract: Performance standards for industrial mobile robots and mobile manipulators (robot arms onboard mobile robots) have only recently begun development. Low cost and standardized measurement techniques are needed to characterize system performance, compar ...
