11. Literature Review of Mobile Robots for Manufacturing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8022
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 5/6/2015
Authors: Michael O Shneier, Roger V Bostelman
Abstract: Mobile robots are devices that can move autonomously to accomplish their goals. This paper provides a review of such robots, mainly oriented towards manufacturing applications. It describes the kinds of mobile robots that are used and what criter ...

12. The Axes of Random Infinitesimal Rotations and the Propagation of Orientation Uncertainty
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 5/5/2015
Authors: Marek Franaszek, Mili Shah, Geraldine S Cheok, Kamel S Saidi
Abstract: Perception systems can measure the orientation of a solid 3D object; however, their measurements will contain some uncertainties. In many robotic applications, it is important to propagate the orientation uncertainties of a rigid object onto the unce ...

13. Service Life Modeling of Reinforced High Volume Fly ash (HVFA) Concrete Structures Containing Cracks
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 5/1/2015
Authors: Scott Z Jones, Dale P Bentz, Kenneth Alan Snyder, Nicos Martys, Daniel S Hussey, David L Jacobson
Abstract: Chloride ions, resulting from the application of de-icing salts travel through the concrete matrix by diffusion in a connected pore network. Cracks in concrete facilitate chloride movement by allowing ions to bypass the concrete matrix and travel ...

14. Sustainability Performance of the NIST Net Zero Energy Residential Test Facility Relative to a Maryland Code Compliant Design
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1187
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/30/2015
Authors: Joshua D Kneifel, Eric G O\'Rear
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) received funding through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to construct a Net-Zero Energy Residential Test Facility (NZERTF). The initial goal of the NZERTF is to demonstra ...

15. Evaluating Smoldering Behavior of Fire-Blocking Barrier Fabrics
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/29/2015
Authors: Shonali Nazare, William M Pitts, Szabolcs Matko, Rick D Davis
Abstract: This study reports on the smoldering propensity of commercially available barrier fabrics (BFs) in a small-scale upholstered seating mock-up configuration. Most commercially available BFs are smolder resistant when tested alone over a standard flexi ...

16. Probing electric field control of magnetism using ferromagnetic resonance
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/29/2015
Authors: Ziyao Zhou, Morgan Trassin, Ya Gao, Yuan Gao, Diana Qiu, Khalid Ashraf, Tianxiang Nan, Xi Yang, Samuel R. Bowden, Daniel Thornton Pierce, Mark D Stiles, John Unguris, Ming Liu, Brandon Howe, Gail Brown, Sayeef Salahuddin, Ramamoorthy Ramesh, Nian Sun
Abstract: A question of fundamental importance in multiferroic materials, such as BiFeO3, is whether the canted moment arising from the Dzyalozhinski-Moriya coupling is switchable with the application of an electric field. Since this canted moment is weak, dir ...

17. Characterizing water transport in ultrathin desalination membranes using Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/19/2015
Authors: Nichole Nadermann, Edwin P Chan, Christopher M Stafford
Abstract: We study the water transport and swelling properties of an ultrathin polyamide selective layer with a hydroxyl-rich polymer coating, i.e., a polymer bilayer, using quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D). Specifically, we use QCM-D t ...

18. Solution-processed high-efficiency p-NiO/n-ZnO heterojunction photodetector
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/19/2015
Authors: Ratan Kumar Debnath, Ting Xie, Baomei Wen, wei li, Abhishek Motayed, Nhan V Nguyen
Abstract: This paper presents a high efficiency heterojunction p-NiO/n-ZnO thin film ultraviolent (UV) photodetector fabricated on conductive glass substrates. The devices are fabricated by using a simple spin-coating layer-by-layer method from precursor s ...

19. Citrate-stabilized gold nanoparticles do not impact neural progenitor cell development
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/5/2015
Authors: Kavita M Jeerage, Tammy L. Oreskovic, Alexandra E Curtin, Aric Warner Sanders, Rani K. Schwindt, Ann Chiaramonti Chiaramonti Debay
Abstract: Gold nanoparticles are promising candidates for medical diagnostics and therapeutics, due to their chemical stability, optical properties, and ease of functionalization. Citrate-stabilized gold nanoparticle reference materials also have potential ...

20. Impact of More Precise Construction Data on Estimated Savings from Energy Standard Adoption for Commercial Buildings
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1178
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 12/19/2014
Authors: Joshua D Kneifel, David T Butry
Abstract: The Applied Economics Office (AEO) of the Engineering Laboratory (EL) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed the Building Industry Reporting and Design for Sustainability (BIRDS) database, which estimates the s ...
