21. Roadmap for Developing Measurement Science for Predicting the Service Life of Polymers Used in Photovoltaic (PV) Systems
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7971
Topic: Energy
Published: 2/24/2014
Authors: Xiaohong Gu, Joannie W Chin

22. Role of salt on adhesion of an epoxy/aluminium (oxide) interface in aqueous environments
Topic: Energy
Published: 2/16/2014
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Justin M Gorham, Aaron M Forster, Vogt D Bryan
Abstract: The durability of adhesive joints in hostile environments is a major area of concern in structural adhesive bonding. Therefore, understanding the mechanics and mechanisms of degradation of adhesive joints is a key factor for more extensive use in fut ...

23. Template synthesis of gold nanoparticles with an organic molecular cage
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/16/2014
Authors: Ryan McCaffrey, Hai Long, Yinghua Jin, Aric Warner Sanders, Wounjhang Park, Wei Zhang
Abstract: We report a novel strategy for the controlled synthesis of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) with narrow size distribution (1.9 {plus or minus} 0.4 nm) through NP nucleation and growth inside the cavity of a well-defined three-dimensional, shape-persist ...

24. 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 ...

25. Fast and Reliable Spectral Response Measurements of PV Cells Using Light Emitting Diodes
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/1/2014
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: We present a measurement system for absolute differential spectral responsivity of solar cells based on high-powered LED arrays coupled to an optical light guide capable of large area illumination. Two different measurement techniques were developed ...

26. 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) ...

27. 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 ...

28. Statistical Prediction of Sealant Modulus Change due to Outdoor Weathering
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/17/2013
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Adam L Pintar, James J Filliben
Abstract: Recently a statistically based model has been created to predict the change in modulus for a sealant exposed to outdoor weathering. The underlying high precision data supporting this model was obtained using the NIST SPHERE (Simulated Photo degrada ...

29. Effect of Concentration on R134a/Al2O3 Nanolubricant Mixture Boiling on a Reentrant Cavity Surface with Extensive Measurement and Analysis Details
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1813
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/25/2013
Author: Mark A Kedzierski
Abstract: This paper quantifies the influence of Al2O3 nanoparticles on the pool boiling performance of R134a/polyolester mixtures on a Turbo-BII-HP boiling surface. Nanolubricants with 10 nm diameter Al2O3 nanoparticles of various volume fractions (1.6 %, 2. ...

30. Development of a Quantum-Voltage-Calibrated Noise Thermometer at NIM
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/11/2013
Authors: Jifeng Qu, Samuel Paul Benz, Jianqiang Zhang, Horst Rogalla, Yang Fu, Alessio Pollarolo, Jintao Zhang
Abstract: A quantum-voltage-calibrated Johnson-noise thermometer was developed at NIM, which measures the Boltzmann constant k through comparing the thermal noise across a 100  sense resistor at the temperature of the triple point water to the comb-lik ...
