1. 3D Nanoscale Characterization of Thin-Film Organic Photovoltaic Device Structures via Spectroscopic Contrast in the TEM
Topic: Polymers
Published: 10/21/2010
Authors: Andrew A Herzing, Lee J Richter, Ian M. Anderson
Abstract: The three-dimensional characterization of third generation photovoltaic device structures at the nanometer scale is essential to the development of efficient, reliable, and inexpensive solar cell technologies. Electron tomography is a powerful metho ...

2. A Buckling-Based Metrology for Measuring the Elastic Moduli of Polymeric Thin Films
Topic: Polymers
Published: 8/1/2004
Authors: Christopher M Stafford, Eva Simonyi, C Harrison, Kathryn L Beers, Alamgir Karim, Eric J. Amis, Mark R VanLandingham, H C Kim, W Volksen, R D Miller
Abstract: As technology continues towards smaller, thinner and lighter devices, more stringent demands are placed on thin polymer films as diffusion barriers, dielectric coatings, electronic packaging and so on. Therefore, there is a growing need for testing p ...

3. A Coherent Approach for Interrogating Polybenzoxazole Fibers for Residual Phosphoric Acid
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7573
Topic: Polymers
Published: 9/17/2009
Authors: Gale Antrus Holmes, Eun S. Park, Charles Martin Guttman, Kathleen M. Flynn, John R Sieber, Stephanie S Watson, Kirk D Rice
Abstract: Because of the premature failure of soft-body armor that contains the active fiber poly [(benzo-[1,2-d:5,4-d‰]-benzoxazole-2,6-diyl)-1,4-phenylene] (PBO), the Office of Law Enforcement Standards (OLES) at the National Institute of Standards and Techn ...

4. A Dielectric Slit Die for In-Line Monitoring of Polymer Compounding
Topic: Polymers
Published: 4/1/2004
Authors: Anthony J. Bur, S C Roth, M M McBrearty
Abstract: The dielectric slit die is an instrument that is designed to measure electrical, rheological, ultrasonics, optical and other properties of a flowing liquid. In one application it is connected to the exit of an extrudder, pump or mixing machine that ...

5. A Direct Comparison of SANS and DET for Polymer Diffusion During Polystyrene Latex Film Formation
Topic: Polymers
Published: 3/1/2000
Authors: S D Kim, E M Boczar, Barry J. Bauer, A Klein, L H Sperling
Abstract: Polystyrene latex film is a model system for the study of interdiffusion in polymers. Small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) and a direct nonradiative energy transfer technique (DET) are widely used to study the interdiffusion of polymers in latex fil ...

6. A High-Throughput Milli-Fluidic Platform For Polymer Formulations
Topic: Polymers
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: Kathryn L Beers, J Cabral, H J Walls, Alamgir Karim, Eric J. Amis

7. A Hybrid Human-Computer Approach to the Extraction of Scientific Facts from the Literature
Topic: Polymers
Published: 6/28/2016
Authors: Roselyne Tchoua, Kyle Chard, Debra Jean Audus, Jian Qin, Juan J. de Pablo, Ian Foster
Abstract: A wealth of valuable data is locked within the millions of research articles published each year. Reading and extracting pertinent information from those articles has become an unmanageable task for scientists. This problem hinders scientific progres ...

Topic: Polymers
Published: 11/24/2009
Authors: Eun S. Park, John R Sieber, Charles Martin Guttman, Kirk D Rice, Kathleen M. Flynn, Stephanie S Watson, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: There is great interest in the degradation of ballistic fibers from exposure to sunlight and high humidity, because it directly affects the lives of people who use protective ballistic armor. However, to date, no mechanism has been found to explain ...

9. A New Design for High-Throughput Peel Tests: Statistical Analysis and Example
Topic: Polymers
Published: 12/1/2004
Authors: A Chiche, Weiping Zhang, Christopher M Stafford, Alamgir Karim
Abstract: The peel test is one of the most common techniques to investigate the properties of pressure sensitive adhesives (PSAs). As the demand increases for combinatorial tools to rapidly test material performance, designinig a high-throughput peel test is a ...

10. A Novel High-Throughput Measurement Method for Determining the Elastic Moduli of Polymer Thin Films
Topic: Polymers
Published: 7/17/2006
Authors: Christopher M Stafford, C Harrison
Abstract: Thin films are increasingly being used in technological applications involving dielec-tric coatings, resist layers for lithography, electronic packaging, optical coatings, etc. As chemists design and synthesize new materials for such applications an ...
