11. Effect of oxidation on surface-enhanced Raman scattering activity of silver nanoparticles: a quantitative correlation
Topic: Metals
Published: 6/6/2011
Authors: Yun Han, Robert Lupitskyy, Tseng-Ming Chou, Christopher M Stafford, Henry Du, Svetlana Sukhishvili
Abstract: The effect of silver oxidation on surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) was investigated using citrate-reduced silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) (45-50 nm in diameter) immobilized on glass substrate. Oxidation of Ag NPs was performed in controlled ozo ...

12. Effects of barrier composition and electroplating chemistry on adhesion and voiding in copper/dielectric diffusion barrier films
Topic: Metals
Published: 8/15/2011
Authors: Ryan Paul Birringer, Roey Shaviv, Roy H. Geiss, David Thomas Read, Reinhold Dauskardt
Abstract: The effects of electroplating chemistry and dielectric diffusion barrier composition on Cu voiding and barrier adhesion are reported. Adhesion was quantified using the four-point bend thin film adhesion technique, and voiding in the Cu films was q ...

13. Elastic-Plastic Fracture Toughness Tests on X100 Pipeline Steel Using Specimens of Different Configurations
Topic: Metals
Published: 8/1/2011
Authors: Enrico Lucon, Timothy S Weeks, D. Y. Park, James Gianetto, G Shen, R S Eagleson

14. Electron Transport in Gold Nanowires: Stable 1-, 2- and 3-Dimensional Atomic Structures and Non-Integer Conduction States
Topic: Metals
Published: 9/14/2011
Authors: Francesca M Tavazza, Douglas T Smith, Lyle E Levine, Jon Robert Pratt, Anne M. Chaka
Abstract: Experimental conductivity measurements made during highly stable tensile deformation of Au nanowires show a rich variety of behaviors, including non-integer quantum conductance plateaus, transitions and slopes. Using tight binding conductance cal ...

15. Estimation of Process Stability in the MAG Welding Process by Monitoring the Welding Parameters
Topic: Metals
Published: 11/1/2001
Author: Thomas A. (Thomas A.) Siewert
Abstract: This paper presents the distribution of the main welding parameters (welding voltage and welding current) for semiautomatic arc welding with the metal active gas (MAG) process, using both flux- cored and solid electrodes. Two different shielding fas ...

16. Fracture Toughness through a Welded Pipeline Section - Crack Tip Opening Angle Criterion
Topic: Metals
Published: 4/23/2007
Authors: Philippe P. Darcis, Christopher N McCowan, Elizabeth S Drexler, Joseph David McColskey, Avigdor Shtechman, Thomas A. (Thomas A.) Siewert
Abstract: The increasing demand for natural gas as an alternative energy source implies continued growth of gas pipeline installations. This trend compels the natural gas transmission industry to consider the construction of larger-diameter, higher-pressure pi ...

Topic: Metals
Published: 3/31/2008
Authors: Thomas A. (Thomas A.) Siewert, Joseph David McColskey, Angelique N Lasseigne
Abstract: In 2007, the National Institute of Standards and Technology greatly expanded its efforts in support of the use of hydrogen as a fuel.   Various NIST divisions have started projects on measurement needs in the areas of flow rates, storage, mater ...

18. High Strain Rate Tissue Simulant Measurements Using digital Image Correlation
Topic: Metals
Published: 6/1/2009
Authors: Steven P Mates, Richard L. Rhorer, Richard Everett, Kirth Simmonds, Amit Bagchi
Abstract: Measuring the response of soft materials to high strain rate deformation is extremely challenging because of the difficulty of achieving dynamic equilibrium during high strain rate mechanical testing such as Kolsky bar testing. Digital image correlat ...

19. Hydrogen traps in the outgassing model of a stainless steel vacuum chamber
Topic: Metals
Published: 3/31/2014
Author: Robert F Berg
Abstract: This article describes a model for hydrogen outgassing into a stainless steel vacuum chamber. It accounts for the geometry of the chamber components, the hydrogen dissolved in those components, and the processes of diffusion, recombination, and trapp ...

20. Identifying the Dynamic Compressive Stiffness of a Prospective Biomimetic Elastomer by an Inverse Method
Topic: Metals
Published: 5/14/2012
Authors: Steven P Mates, Aaron M Forster, Donald Hunston, Richard Everett, Kirth Simmonds, Amit Bagchi
Abstract: Elastomeric materials that mimic real soft human tissues are sought to provide realistic experimental devices to simulate the human body‰s response to concussive loading so that better protective equipment can be developed. Tissue injury occurs under ...
