31. A Differential Form of the Kramers-Kronig Relation for Determining a Lorentz-Type of Refractive Index
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/22/2015
Authors: Sung Kim, David R Novotny, Joshua A Gordon, Jeffrey R Guerrieri
Abstract: The integral forms of the Kramers-Kronig (KK) relations that relate the real and imaginary parts, n' and n", of a refractive index require the integral to be conducted over the full spectrum. In this paper, we derive a differential form of the KK rel ...

33. Indoor Environmental Resilience: White Paper
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/16/2015
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: NIST is developing a framework to define programs and strategies to increase community-based resilience in the face of a broad range of natural disasters and other extreme events. Many of these events will affect indoor environmental quality either t ...

34. Interference and Coexistence of Wireless Systems in Critical Infrastructure
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1885
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 7/7/2015
Authors: Galen H. Koepke, William F Young, John M Ladbury, Jason B Coder
Abstract: We examine interference and coexistence testing issues, test methods, and the need to update and develop new test methodologies related to the use of wireless devices in critical infrastructure systems. A case study on interference is presented ...

35. HIGH-Q ON-CHIP MICROWAVE RESONATOR FOR SENSITIVE PERMITTIVITY DETECTION IN NANOLITER VOLUMES
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/21/2015
Authors: A Padilla, Alex Watson, Christopher L Holloway, James C Booth
Abstract: This work presents the design, fabrication and characterization results for a thick film (6µm Cu), coplanar waveguide (CPW) resonator operating at 2.2GHz with a high Q (~177), integrated with a microfluidic channel. We demonstrate detection of change ...

36. Modeling Particle Resuspension for Estimating Exposure to Bacillus Spores
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1841
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/11/2015
Authors: William S Dols, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: A key challenge in assessing the risks of low level contaminations following biological threat agent releases, and subsequent decontamination, is developing an understanding of and addressing the potential for airborne resuspension of agents that ...

37. Experimental and Modeling Study of Thermal Exposure of a Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/10/2015
Authors: Michelle K Donnelly, Jiann C Yang
Abstract: An experimental apparatus designed to study firefighter turnout gears exposed to a thermal environment was developed. The apparatus consisted of an elevated temperature flow loop with the ability to heat the air stream up to 200 ºC. The thermal a ...

38. IAQ and Energy Impacts of Ventilation and Source Control in a Big Box Retail Building
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/10/2015
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in buildings are designed to provide thermally comfortable conditions and to maintain acceptable indoor air quality (IAQ). At the same time, the operating costs of HVAC systems are often a lar ...

39. Amplitude and phase-resolved nano-spectral imaging of surface phonon polaritons in hexagonal boron nitride
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/9/2015
Authors: Samuel Berweger, Shi Zhiwen, Hans A Bechtel, Sun Yinghui, Zeng Bo, Jin Chenhao, Chang Henry, Michael C. Martin, Markus B. Raschke, Feng Wang
Abstract: Phonon polaritons are quasiparticles resulting from strong coupling of photons with optical phonons. Excitation and control of these quasiparticles in 2D materials offer the opportunity to confine and transport light at the nanoscale. Here, we imag ...
