1. Analyzing a Co-Polymer Aramid Fiber for Use in Soft Body Armor
Published: 10/25/2013
Authors: Walter G McDonough, Jae Hyun Kim, Nathanael A Heckert, Amanda Lattam Forster, Scott A Wight, Joy P Dunkers, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: Since the well-publicized failure of body armor used by a police officer, it has become imperative that the long-term properties and performance of new fibers being considered for use be understood. The range of interest is from the molecular proper ...

2. X-Ray Scattering Study on the Damage in Fibers Used in Soft Body Armor After Folding
Published: 9/21/2012
Authors: Haruki Kobayashi, Walter G McDonough, Joy P Dunkers, Scott A Wight, Hae-Jeong Lee, Jae Hyun Kim, Amanda Lattam Forster, Kirk D Rice, Gale Antrus Holmes

3. Total Scattering Cross Section Measurements Using a Dual Faraday Cup with a 5 Micron Aperture
Published: 4/25/2012
Authors: Scott A Wight, Andrew Robert Konicek
Abstract: Scattering in the variable pressure scanning electron microscope (VPSEM) affects image resolution and the ability to perform quantitative chemical measurements. However, the manner in which the total scattering cross section varies as a function of g ...

Published: 4/4/2012
Authors: Walter G McDonough, Amanda Lattam Forster, Haruki Kobayashi, Jae Hyun Kim, Michael A Riley, Joy P Dunkers, Scott A Wight, Kirk D Rice, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: The goal of this paper and presentation is to give an overview of the research effort to date being conducted at the National Institute of Standards and Technology on polymeric fibers used in soft body armor (SBA) and a discussion of future direction ...

5. The Effects of Folding on High Strength Fibers Used in Soft Body Armor
Published: 1/23/2012
Authors: Haruki Kobayashi, Walter G McDonough, Joy P Dunkers, Jae Hyun Kim, Hae-Jeong Lee, Scott A Wight, Amanda Lattam Forster, Kirk D Rice, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: Poly (p-phenylene benzobisoxazole) (PBO) fibers have been used in soft body armor (SBA) because of their high mechanical strength. However, there was an unexpected failure of a first responder‰s SBA which was composed of PBO fiber that was in service ...

6. Evaluation of the Shapes of Auger- and Secondary-Electron Linescans Across Interfaces With the Logistic Function
Published: 7/1/2006
Authors: Scott A Wight, Cedric John Powell
Abstract: We report on the use of the extended logistic function for fitting Auger-electron (AE) and secondary-electron (SE) linescans. Such fits provide convenient and objective measures of parameters describing the interface width and possible asymmetry of a ...

7. Characterization of High Explosive Particles Using Cluster Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry
Published: 1/1/2006
Authors: John G Gillen, Scott A Wight, Christine M. Mahoney, Richard T. Lareau

8. Direct Preparation of Particles From Liquid Suspension for ESEM or SEM Analysis
Published: 10/1/2005
Authors: Scott A Wight, Richard D Holbrook
Abstract: A simplified method for the preparation of particles from liquid suspensions has been developed. Particles are deposited directly on carbon planchets for rapid analysis by environmental scanning electron microscopy or by conventional scanning electr ...

9. High Spatial Resolution Quantitative Electron Beam Microanalysis for Nanoscale Materials
Published: 3/21/2005
Authors: Dale E Newbury, J H J Scott, Scott A Wight, J T. Armstrong, John A Small
Abstract: Transmission (TEM) and scanning electron microscopes (SEM) provide ideal platforms for electron and x-ray spectrometry to characterize nanoscale particles and nanostructured bulk materials. Electron spectrometry includes electron energy loss spectro ...

10. Characterization of Colloidal Material Fom Natural and Engineered Waters Investigating Structure-Function Relationships Through Microanalysis
Published: 2/1/2004
Authors: Richard D Holbrook, Scott A Wight, Dale E Newbury
Abstract: The fate, transport and ultimate impact of toxic compounds in aquatic systems is governed by their distribution between the particulate, colloidal and dissolved phases. Colloids, conventionally defined as solid material between 1 nm and 1 m in size, ...
