34. Amplitude and phase-resolved nano-spectral imaging of surface phonon polaritons in hexagonal boron nitride
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 6/9/2015
Authors: Samuel Berweger, Shi Zhiwen, Hans A Bechtel, Sun Yinghui, Zeng Bo, Jin Chenhao, Chang Henry, Michael C. Martin, Markus B. Raschke, Feng Wang
Abstract: Phonon polaritons are quasiparticles resulting from strong coupling of photons with optical phonons. Excitation and control of these quasiparticles in 2D materials offer the opportunity to confine and transport light at the nanoscale. Here, we imag ...

38. An improved method of modeling infiltration in commercial building energy models
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1829
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 4/28/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Steven J Emmerich, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: As various strategies for improving building envelope and HVAC equipment efficiencies are increasingly used to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of energy loss can occur through building envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of ...
