1. A Method  for Calibrating Ultrasonic Aluminum Reference Blocks with Nominally-Identical Ceramic-Element Transducers
Published: 3/27/1998
Authors: John A. Slotwinski, Steven Earl Fick, G V Sydnor, Ana Lopez-Sanchez, Gerald V. Blessing
Abstract: Ceramic-element transducers have been used successfully to calibrate aluminum flat-bottom-hole (FBH) reference blocks according to the American Society for Testing and Materials [ASTM] E127 protocol. Six different transducers with nominal resonance f ...

2. An IEEE 1451.5-802.11 Standard-based Wireless Sensor Network with Embedded WTIM
Published: 5/12/2011
Authors: Yuyin Song, Kang B Lee, Steven Earl Fick, M Alkan Donmez
Abstract: This paper introduces a reference implementation of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1451.5-802.11 standard-based wireless sensor network (WSN) developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The WS ...

3. An Ultrasonic Absolute Power Transfer Standard
Published: 3/1/1984
Authors: Steven Earl Fick, Donald G Eitzen, Carl E Tschiegg, Franklin R Breckenridge
Abstract: In response to increased interest in the use of calibrated sources of ultrasonic energy, we have developed a system comprising components grouped to facilitate the accurate transfer of calibration. Electronic circuitry supplied with and built into ea ...

4. Contactless Differential Conductivity Detection
Published: 10/12/2008
Authors: Gordon Allan Shaw, David J Ross, Steven Earl Fick, Wyatt N Vreeland
Abstract: We propose a new technique, contactless differential conductivity detection (CDCD,) to improve the detection limit of contactless conductivity detection for capillary and microchannel electrophoresis. By exploiting a 3-electrode differential configu ...

5. Dynamic Measurement of Shear Band Formation in Precision Hard-Turning
Published: 1/1/1996
Authors: Matthew A. Davies, Steven Earl Fick, Christopher J. Evans
Abstract: Abstract not available.

6. Effect of Acoustic Excitation on R134a/Al2O3 Nanolubricant Mixture Boiling on a Reentrant Cavity Surface with Extensive Measurement and Analysis Details
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1836
Published: 8/6/2014
Authors: Mark A Kedzierski, Steven Earl Fick
Abstract: This paper quantifies the influence of acoustic excitation of Al2O3 nanoparticles on the pool boiling performance of R134a/polyolester mixtures on a Turbo-BII-HP boiling surface. A nanolubricant with 10 nm diameter Al2O3 nanoparticles at a 5.1 % vol ...

7. Electrochemical Micromachining of Hastelloy B-2 with Ultrashort Voltage Pulses
Published: 9/8/2009
Authors: Gordon Allan Shaw, Joseph J. Maurer, Steven Earl Fick, Thomas P Moffat, J. J. Mallett, John L. Hudson
Abstract: Electrochemical micromachining (ECMM) with ultrashort voltage pulses, a maskless all-electrochemical micro and nanofabrication technique, has been used to fabricate microstructures on a corrosion resistant nickel-based superalloy, Hastelloy B-2. Beca ...

8. In-situ Attenuation Corrections for Radiation Force Measurements of High Frequency Ultrasound with a Conical Target
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Published: 11/1/2006
Authors: Steven Earl Fick, E Steven, D Ruggless
Abstract: Radiation force balance (RFB) measurements of time-averaged spatially-integrated ultrasound power transmitted into a reflectionless water load are based on measurements of the power received by the RFB target.  When conical targets are used to i ...

9. Local Geometric Projection-Based Noise Reduction for Vibration Signal Analysis in Rolling Bearings
Published: 10/31/2008
Authors: Kang B Lee, Steven Earl Fick, Robert Gao, Ruqiang Yan
Abstract: This paper presents a noise reduction technique for vibration signal analysis in rolling bearings, based on local geometric projection (LGP). LGP is a non-linear filtering technique that reconstructs one dimensional time series in a high-dimensional ...

10. Long-term Stability of the NIST Conical Reference Transducer
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Published: 12/22/2011
Authors: Steven Earl Fick, Thomas M. Proctor
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Conical Reference Transducer (CRT) is designed for purposes which require frequency response characteristics much more uniform than those attainable with ultrasonic transducers conventionally ...
