391. 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 ...

392. 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 ...

393. Anisotropic elastic properties of nanocrystalline nickel thin films
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 5/1/2006
Authors: Donna C. Hurley, Roy H. 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 ...

394. 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 ...

395. 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 ...

397. Zeroing in on a Lead-Free Solder Database
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 10/1/2005
Authors: Thomas A. (Thomas A.) Siewert, David R. Smith
Abstract: The rising interest in lead-free solders creates a need for complete property data on the various lead-free solder compositions. Circuit designers need these data to assess the impact of the transition on product life, and production engineers need t ...

398. Impedance and Nonlinear Dielectric Testing at High AC Voltages Using Waveforms
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/15/2005
Authors: Jan Obrzut, K Kano
Abstract: This paper presents the application of a waveform technique that can determine the complex impedance and nonlinear response of dielectric composite films at high ac voltages using a data acquisition (DAQ) card and virtual instrumentation. The voltag ...

Authors: Terrell Ann Vanderah, M W. Lufaso
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=854249

400. Analyzing Microstructure by Rietveld Refinement
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 6/1/2005
Authors: Davor Balzar, N C Popa
Abstract: Rietveld refinement has a primary purpose of refining crystal structure. However, this powerful technique is being increasingly used for obtaining microstructural information, such as texture, crystallite size, strain and stress, and crystalline defe ...
