31. Combinatorial Techniques to Measure Curing of Epoxy Films
Published: 2/1/2004
Authors: Aaron M Forster, D Ragahavan, Naomi Eidelman, Alamgir Karim
Abstract: Combinatorial methods were implemented in the investigation of time and temperature effects on epoxy curing by using three complementary techniques: axisymmetric adhesion testing, FT-IR reflectance mapping, and confocal fluorescence mapping to charac ...

32. High-Throughput Adhesion Testing of Combinatorial Libraries With Multi-Lens Arrays
Published: 2/1/2004
Authors: Aaron M Forster, Wenhua Zhang, Christopher M Stafford
Abstract: The NIST Combinatorial Methods Center (NCMC) has adapted the Johnson, Kendall, and Roberts (JKR) test to develop a high-throughput adhesion measurement platform. Traditionally, the JKR test utilizes a single hemispherical lens compressed against (loa ...

33. Combinatorial Approach to Characterizing Epoxy Curing
Published: 1/1/2004
Authors: Naomi Eidelman, D T Raghavan, Aaron M Forster, Eric J. Amis, Alamgir Karim
Abstract: Three complementary techniques were used to follow the curing of a diglycidyl ether bisphenol A epoxy resin (DGEBA): FT-IR microspectroscopy, confocal microscopy, and axisymmetric adhesion testing. Each technique probes different characteristics of ...

34. Spatial Correlations and Robust Statistical Analysis for Combinatorial Methodologies
Published: 1/1/2004
Authors: Eric J. Amis, S B Kennedy, Aaron M Forster, N. R. Washburn

35. High-Throughput Measurements of Polymer Adhesion and Mechanical Properties
Published: 9/1/2003
Authors: Christopher M Stafford, Aaron M Forster, C Harrison, Cher H. Davis, Eric J. Amis, Alamgir Karim
Abstract: Polymer adhesion is important to numerous technologies including electronic packaging, coatings and paints, biomedical implants, and pressure-sensitive adhesives. The challenge is to understand the fundamental driving forces for the development of a ...

36. Combinatorial Adhesion Measurements: Factorial Design Concepts for Data Collection and Library Evaluation
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: Aaron M Forster, Christopher M Stafford, Alamgir Karim, Eric J. Amis
Abstract: Product discovery in the adhesives industry is often characterized by experimental trial and error combined with empirical knowledge. The NIST developed multi-lens combinatorial adhesion test (MCAT) has the potential to increase the efficiency of th ...

37. The Influence of Shearing Parameters on the Frictional Forces Measured Between Polymer Brushes
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: Aaron M Forster, S. Michael Kilbey
Abstract: Polymer brushes have potential as end-tethered lubricants. Brush layers immersed in a good solvent must be compressed to ~16% of their equilibrium height before friction forces are measured. The same experiment in a solvent near the theta temperatu ...

38. Polymer Science at the NIST Combinatorial Methods Center
Published: 8/1/2002
Authors: Cher H. Davis, Kathryn L Beers, Aaron M Forster, Christopher M Stafford, A P Smith, C Harrison, Weiping Zhang, Alamgir Karim, Eric J. Amis
Abstract: The measurements, standards, and test methods developed by NIST, in partnership with other organizations, often help unlock the potential of new discoveries and budding technologies. Combinatorial methods are a textbook example. These emerging tools ...
