1. Energy Transfer Between Eigenmodes in Multimodal Atomic Force Microscopy
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 11/5/2014
Authors: Sang Min An, Santiago de Jesus Solares Rivera, Sergio Santos, Daniel Ebeling
Abstract: We present experimental and computational investigations of tetramodal and pentamodal atomic force microscopy (AFM), respectively, whereby the first four or five flexural modes of the cantilever are simultaneously excited externally. This leads to s ...

2. On Cascading Failures and Countermeasure based on Energy Storage in the Smart Grid
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 10/8/2014
Authors: Xing Chen, Wei Yu, David Wesley Griffith, Nada T Golmie, Guobin Xu, Chao Lu
Abstract: Recently, there are growing concerns about smart grid security and resilience. The performance of smart grid may suffer from component failures or targeted attacks. A sophisticated adversary may target critical components in a smart grid, leading ...

3. Insights into capacity loss mechanisms of all-solid-state Li-ion batteries with Al anodes
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 9/3/2014
Authors: Marina S. Leite, Dmitry Alexandrovich Ruzmetov, Zhipeng Li, Leonid A Bendersky, Norman C. Bartelt, Andrei A Kolmakov, Albert A. Talin
Abstract: Not required by journal

4. Vibronic Coupling in Asymmetric Bichromophores: Experimental Investigation of Diphenylmethane-d5
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 8/14/2014
Authors: Nathan Pillsbury, Nathanael M Kidwell, Benjamin Nebgen, Lyudmila V Slipchenko, Kevin O Douglass, John R Cable, David F Plusquellic
Abstract: Vibrationally and rotationally resolved electronic spectra of diphenylmethane-d5 (DPM-d5) are reported in the isolated-molecule environment of a supersonic expansion. While small, the asymmetry induced by deuteration of one of the aromatic rings is ...

5. Large-area irradiance-mode spectral response measurements of solar cells by a light-emitting-diode- based integrating sphere source
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 5/30/2014
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Andrew M Shore, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: An irradiance-mode absolute differential spectral response measurement system based on a light emitting diode (LED) array is described. The LEDs are coupled to an integrating sphere whose output irradiance is uniform to better than 2 % over an ar ...

6. A novel solar simulator based on a supercontinuum laser for solar cell device and materials characterization
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 5/26/2014
Authors: Tasshi Dennis, John B Schlager, Kristine A Bertness
Abstract: The design, operation, and application of a novel solar simulator based on a high-power supercontinuum fiber laser are described. The simulator features a multisun irradiance with continuous spectral coverage from the visible to the infrared. By ...

7. Confinement-Driven Increase in Ionomer Thin-Film Modulus
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Kirt Anthony Page, Ahmet Kusoglu, Christopher M Stafford, Sangcheol Kim, Regis J Kline, Adam Weber
Abstract: Ion-conductive polymers, or ionomers, are critical materials for a wide range of electrochemical technologies. For optimizing the complex, heterogeneous structures in which they occur, there is a need to elucidate the governing structure/func ...

8. Interface scattering in polycrystalline thermoelectrics
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 3/24/2014
Authors: Adrian Popescu, Paul M Haney
Abstract: We study the effect of electron and phonon interface scattering on the thermoelectric properties of disordered, polycrystalline materials (with grain sizes larger than electron and phonons' mean free path). Interface scattering of electrons is treat ...

9. Design Considerations for Enhancing Absorption in Semiconductors on Metals with Surface Plasmon Polaritons
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 3/5/2014
Authors: Christopher Bohn, Amit Kumar Agrawal, Youngmin Lee, Charles J. Choi, Matthew Davis, Paul M Haney, Henri J Lezec, Veronika A Szalai
Abstract: Surface plasmon polaritons have attracted attention for energy applications such as photovoltaic and photoelectrochemical cells because of their ability to improve optical absorption in thin fi lms. We show that surface plasmon polaritons enhance a ...

10. Normalized Performance Parameters for a Residential Heat Pump in the Cooling Mode with Single Faults Imposed
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 3/3/2014
Authors: William V Payne, Jin Min Cho, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: The performance of a residential split heat pump in the cooling mode operating under nine faults was described using normalized performance parameters determined from a ratio of the faulty value to the no-fault value obtained from heat pump tests in ...
