11. Effect of a Compressive Uniaxial Strain on the Critical Current Density of Grain Boundary in Superconducting YBa^d2^Cu^d^3O^d7-{delta}^ Films
Topic: Ceramics
Published: 7/10/2009
Authors: Daniel Cornelis van der Laan, Timothy J. Haugan, Paul N. Barnes
Abstract: Grain boundaries can be a significant barrier for current flow in high temperature superconducting (HTS) thin films. We show that an applied compressive strain causes a remarkable increase in critical current density (Jc,GB) in thin film YBa^d2^Cu^d3 ...

12. Thermoelectric and Structural Characterization of Ba2Ho(Cu3-xCox)O6+y
Topic: Ceramics
Published: 6/13/2009
Authors: Winnie K Wong-Ng, Z Yang, Y F Hu, Qingzhen Huang, Nathan Lowhorn, Makoto Otani, James A Kaduk, Martin L Green, Q Li
Abstract: The search for thermoelectric materials for power generation and for solid-state cooling have led to the increased interest of layered cobalt-containing oxides because of their thermal stability at high temperature and their desirable thermoelectric ...

13. A High-throughput Screening System for Thermoelectric Material Exploration Based on Combinatorial Film Approach
Topic: Ceramics
Published: 5/7/2009
Authors: Makoto Otani, Evan L. Thomas, Winnie K Wong-Ng, Peter K. Schenck, Nathan Lowhorn, Martin L Green, Hiroyuki Ohguchi
Abstract: A high-throughput system that consists of a combinatorial tool (a sputtering deposition tool and a pulsed laser deposition tool) and two property screening devices, developed at NIST, was used for thermoelectric material exploration. The thermoelectr ...

14. Process-Controlled Plasma-Sprayed Yttria-Stabilized Zirconia Coatings: New Insights from
Topic: Ceramics
Published: 2/11/2009
Authors: Y Li, W Chi, S Sampath, A N Goland, H Herman, Andrew John Allen, J Ilavsky
Abstract: A multi-component microstructure model is applied in ultrasmall-angle X-ray scattering (USAXS) studies of the processing microstructure property relationships for two groups of plasma-sprayed yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) thermal barrier coati ...

15. Statistical analysis of a round-robin measurement survey of two candidate materials for a Seebeck coefficient Standard Reference Material
Topic: Ceramics
Published: 2/2/2009
Authors: John Lu, Nathan Lowhorn, Winnie K Wong-Ng, Weiping Zhang, Evan L. Thomas, Makoto Otani, Martin L Green, Thanh N. Tran, Chris Caylor, Neil Dilley, Adams Downey, B Edwards, Norbert Elsner, S Ghamaty, Timothy Hogan, Qing Jie, Qiang Li, Joshua Brooks Martin, George S. Nolas, H Obara, Jeffrey Sharp, Rama Venkatasubramanian, Rhonda Willigan, Jihui Yang, Terry Tritt
Abstract: In an effort to develop a Standard Reference Material (SRM ) for Seebeck coefficient, we have conducted a round-robin measurement survey of two candidate materials undoped Bi2Te3 and constantan (55% Cu and 45% Ni alloy). Measurements were performe ...

16. Synthesis and Transport Properties of Framework-Substituted Cs^d8^Na^d16^Cu^d5^Ge^d131^
Topic: Ceramics
Published: 1/13/2009
Authors: Matthew Beekman, James A Kaduk, J Gryko, Winnie K Wong-Ng, Alexander J. Shapiro, George S. Nolas
Abstract: We report the synthesis and temperature dependent transport properties of a new type II germanium clathrate, Cs8Na16Cu5Ge131 (space group Fd3m; a = 15.42000(9) ) . In comparison to the parent compound Cs8Na16Ge136, Cu substitution for Ge on the clat ...

17. Measurement of Axisymmetric Crystallographic Texture
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: sp
Topic: Ceramics
Published: 1/1/2009
Author: Mark D Vaudin
Abstract: Crystallographic texture has for many years been the fiefdom of metallurgists and geologists, who have developed elegant methodologies for the analysis of highly complex textures and texture evolutions. Over the past two decades, the importance and ...

18. Indentation Fracture of Low Dielectric Constant Films, Part I. Experiments and Observations
Topic: Ceramics
Published: 12/12/2008
Authors: Dylan Morris, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: Advanced microelectronic interconnection structures will need dielectrics of low permittivity to reduce capacitive delays and crosstalk; but this reduction in permittivity typically necessitates an increase in free volume of the material, which is fr ...

19. Mapping the Elastic Properties of Granular Au Films by Contact Resonance Atomic Force Microscopy
Topic: Ceramics
Published: 11/13/2008
Authors: Gheorghe Stan, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: Endowed with nanoscale spatial resolution, contact resonance atomic force microscopy (CR-AFM) provides extremely localized elastic property measurements. We advance here the applicability of CR-AFM on surfaces with nanosize features by considering th ...

20. Electronic Structure and Chemistry of Iron-Based Metal Oxide Nanostructured Materials: A NEXAFS Investigation of BiFeO3, Bi2Fe4O9, a-Fe2O3, g-Fe2O3, and Fe/Fe3O4
Topic: Ceramics
Published: 11/6/2008
Authors: Tae-Jin Park, S Sambasivan, Daniel A Fischer, R Ramesh, J A Misewich, S S Wong
Abstract: We present a systematic and detailed Near Edge X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (NEXAFS) experimental investigation of the electronic structure and chemistry of iron-based metal oxide nanostructured (FeMONS) materials including BiFeO3, Bi2Fe4O9, a-Fe2 ...
