21. Radio-microanalytical particle measurements method and application to Fukushima aerosols collected in Japan
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 8/26/2012
Authors: Cynthia J Zeissler, Lawrence Forsley, Richard Mark Lindstrom, Sean Newsome, Adrean Kirk, P.A. Mosier-Boss
Abstract: A nondestructive analytical method based on autoradiography and gamma spectrometry was developed to perform activity distribution analysis for particulate samples. This was applied to aerosols collected in Fukushima Japan, 40 km north of the Daiich ...

22. Proposal for a standardized test artifact for additive manufacturing machines and processes
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 8/15/2012
Authors: Shawn P Moylan, John A. Slotwinski, April Lynne Cooke, Kevin K Jurrens, M Alkan Donmez
Abstract: Historically, standardized test parts are used to quantitatively evaluate the performance of a machine or process. While several different additive manufacturing (AM) test parts have been developed in the past, there are no current standard test par ...

23. The winter time South Pole tropospheric water vapor column: Comparisons of radiosonde and recent terahertz radiometry, use of the saturated column as a proxy measurement; and inference of decadal trends
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 7/7/2012
Authors: Richard Addison Chamberlin, Erich N Grossman
Abstract: We use a fifty year record of winter time radiosonde observations at the South Pole to estimate the precipitable water vapor column (PWV) over the entire period. Humidity data from older radiosondes is of limited reliability; however, we think an est ...

24. Innovative Approach to Rapid Growth of Highly Clay-Filled Coatings on Porous Polyurethane Foam
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 6/11/2012
Authors: Yeon Seok Kim, Richard H. Harris Jr., Rick D Davis
Abstract: : An innovative twist to fabricating layer-by-layer coatings resulted in transparent, high-content clay coatings on porous polyurethane foam. The addition of an anionic poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) monolayer between anionic clay and cationic branched-pol ...

25. Measurements, Standards, and Data In Support of Sustainable Materials and Materials-Related Technologies
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 4/1/2012
Authors: Dianne L Poster, Michael J Fasolka, Richard R Cavanagh, Ellyn S. Beary
Abstract: Industry is increasingly aware that sustainability combines environmental, societal, and economic considerations in product development and that this linkage, while driving improved performance, can pose both a business opportunity and a challenge. ...

26. Transitory Temperatures of Organic-Film Coated Specimens under Outdoor Exposure
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 3/2/2012
Authors: William C. Thomas, Christopher C White, Walter Eric Byrd
Abstract: A mathematical model is presented and validated for predicting the temperature of thin polymeric films bonded to substrate materials. The National Institute of Standards and Technology provided specimen temperature and simultaneous weather data for t ...

27. State-of-the-Art Comparability of Corrected Emission Spectra-Part II: Peer-toPeer Assessment of Calibration Performance Using Spectral Fluorescence Standards
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 2/28/2012
Authors: Paul C DeRose, Joanne C Zwinkels, Bernd Ebert
Abstract: The tremendous growth of fluorescence applications in the life and material sciences has proceeded largely without sufficient concern for the reliability and uncertainties related to the characterization and performance validation of fluorescence ins ...

28. Characterizing Equilibrium in Epitaxial Growth
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 2/20/2012
Authors: Paul N. Patrone, Russel Caflisch, Dionisios Margetis
Abstract: Using a kinetic model of epitaxial growth, we describe how geometry controls kinetic pathways through which external deposition influences the state of a vicinal surface. The state of the surface is determined by three key, adjustable parameters: th ...

29. A test method for monitoring changes during durability tests on building joint sealants
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 2/8/2012
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan
Abstract: The durability of building joint sealants is generally assessed using a descriptive methodology involving visual inspection for defects. It is widely known that this methodology has many inherent limitations and is only qualitative in nature. A new ...

30. Ultrafast Demagnetization Measurements using Extreme Ultraviolet Light: Comparison of Electronic and Magnetic Contributions
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 1/23/2012
Authors: Thomas J Silva, Justin M Shaw, Hans Toya Nembach, Margaret M. Murnane, Henry C. Kapteyn, Chan La-O-Vorakiat, Stefan Mathias, Emrah Turgut, Teale A. Carson, Martin Aeschlimann, Claus M. Schneider
Abstract: Ultrashort pulses of extreme ultraviolet light from high-harmonic generation are a new tool for probing coupled charge, spin, and phonon dynamics with element specificity, attosecond pump-probe synchronization, and time resolution of a few-femtosecon ...
