351. NIST Recommended Practice Guide: Fractography of Ceramics and Glasses
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 960-16
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 9/26/2006
Author: George David Quinn
Abstract: Fractography is a powerful but underutilized tool for the analysis of fractured glasses and ceramics. Fractography can identify the cause of failure and can even provide quantitative information about the loading conditions. The goal of this Guide ...

352. Phase Formation and Properties in the System Bi2O 3:2CoO 1+x:Nb2O5
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 9/13/2006
Authors: Terrell A Vanderah, T Siegrist, M W Lufaso, C Yeager, Juan C Nino, S Yates, Robert S. Roth
Abstract: Subsolidus phase relations have been determined for the Bi-Co-Nb-O system in air (750 C to 925 C). Ternary compound formation was limited to pyrochlore (A2B 2O 6O ), which formed a substantial solid solution region at Bi-deficient stoichiometries ...

353. Broadband coherent anti-strokes Raman spectroscopy characterization of polymer thin films
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/2/2006
Authors: Lee J Richter, M C. Gurau, Zachary Schultz
Abstract: Broadband coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS) is demonstrated as an effective probe of the polymer thin film materials. A simple modification to a commercially available 1 kHz SFG spectrometer permits acquisition of CARS spectra for polym ...

354. Second Symposium on Pendulum Impact Machines: Procedures and Specimens
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/1/2006
Authors: Thomas Allen Siewert, Christopher N McCowan, M. P. Manahan
Abstract: This publication consists primarily of the papers presented at the Second Symposium on Pendulum Impact Machines: Procedures and Specimens, sponsored by ASTM Committee E28 on Mechanical Testing and its Subcommittee E28.07 on Impact Testing. The Sympos ...

355. Phase Formation, Crystal Chemistry, and Properties in the Magnetic Dielectric System Bi^d2^O^d3-^Fe^d2^O^d3-^Nb^d2^O^d5^
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 6/22/2006
Authors: M W Lufaso, Terrell A Vanderah, I M Pazos, Igor Levin, Juan C Nino, Virgil Provenzano, Peter K. Schenck, Robert S. Roth
Abstract: Subsolidus phase relations have been determined for the Bi2O3-Fe2O3-Nb2O5 system in air (900-1075 C). Three new ternary phases were observed Bi3Fe0.5Nb1.5O9 with an Aurivillius-type structure, and two phases with approximate stoichiometries Bi17Fe2 ...

356. An Octagonal Architecture for High Strength PIT Nb^d3^Sn Conductors
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 6/6/2006
Authors: L. R. Motowidlo, E Barzi, D. Turrioni, Najib Cheggour, Loren Frederick Goodrich
Abstract: Powder-in-Tube (PIT) Nb^d3^Sn conductors have been fabricated utilizing a low-cost intermetallic Cu^d5^Sn^d4^ powder as the tin source. A novel octagonal PIT design that incorporates dispersion strengthened copper as well as a hexagonal PIT design w ...

357. Effect of Self-Assembled Monolayer Film Order on Nanofriction
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 5/11/2006
Authors: S Sambasivan, S Hsieh, Daniel A Fischer, Stephen M. Hsu
Abstract: Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) have increasingly being explored as potential protective films in devices friction and adhesion. However, accurate determination of the nanomechanical properties of monolayer films is difficult and fraught with uncert ...

358. Anisotropic elastic properties of nanocrystalline nickel thin films
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 5/1/2006
Authors: Donna C. Hurley, Roy Howard Geiss, N Jennett, Malgorzata Kopycinska-Mueller, A Maxwell, Jens Mueller, David Thomas Read, J Wright
Abstract: As length scales continue to shrink, new tools are needed to measure mechanical properties. We are developing two such tools using different nondestructive acoustical techniques. Surface acoustic wave spectroscopy (SAWS) uses laser-ultrasonic methods ...

359. Transverse Fracture of Brittle Bilayers Relevance to Failure of All-Ceramic Dental Crowns
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/1/2006
Authors: Jeonghwan Kim, Sanjit Bhowmick, Ilja Hermann, Brian Ronald Lawn
Abstract: A study is made of the behavior of cracks approaching interfaces in all-ceramic crown-like bilayers. Flat specimens are fabricated by fusing porcelain veneers onto Y-TZP and alumina core ceramic plates, with veneer/core matching to minimize residual ...

360. Comparison of the Fouling Release Properties of Hydrophobic Fluorinated and Hydrophilic PEGylated Block Copolymer Surfaces
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/19/2006
Authors: S Krishman, N Wang, Christopher K. Ober, J Finlay, M E Callow, J A Callow, A Hexemer, K E Sohn, E J Kramer, Daniel A Fischer
Abstract: To understand the role of surface-wettability on adhesion of cells, the attachment of two different marine algae was studied on hydrophobic and hydrophilic polymer surfaces. Adhesion of cells of the diatom Navicula and sporelings (young plants) of th ...
