91. 3D Nanoscale Characterization of Thin-Film Organic Photovoltaic Device Structures via Spectroscopic Contrast in the TEM
Topic: Energy
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 ...

92. A Methodology to Evaluate Wireless Technologies for the Smart Grid
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/4/2010
Authors: Michael R Souryal, Camillo A Gentile, David Wesley Griffith, David E Cypher, Nada T Golmie
Abstract: This paper presents a methodology for assessing the suitability of various wireless technologies for meeting the communication requirements of Smart Grid applications. It describes an approach for translating application requirements to link traffic ...

93. Requirements to Support a Modern Architecture for Industrial Data and Industrial Data Standards on the Semantic Web
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7729
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/30/2010
Authors: Evan K Wallace, Allison Barnard Feeney, David Leal
Abstract: The ISO subcommittee tasked with developing standards for industrial data, TC 184/SC 4, has recently undertaken an effort to define a new, more flexible architecture based on widely-used information technologies and standards with the goal of reducin ...

94. Air Flow Distribution through an A-Shaped Evaporator under Dry and Wet Coil Conditions
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/11/2010
Authors: David A Yashar, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: This paper presents a study of the air flow distribution through a residential air-conditioning heat exchanger. The test subject was a finned-tube, A-shaped coil outfitted with a condensation collection pan required for horizontal installation. We ...

95. Application of Microwave Scanning Probes to Photovoltaic Materials
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/20/2010
Authors: Kristine A Bertness, John B. Schlager, Norman A Sanford, Atif A. Imtiaz, Thomas M Wallis, Joel C Weber, Pavel Kabos, Lorelle M. Mansfield
Abstract: We demonstrate that near field scanning microwave microscopy (NSMM) can be used to detect photoresponse in photovoltaic materials with potential for submicrometer resolution. In this approach, a radio-frequency scanning tunneling microscopy (RF-STM) ...

96. Cost-effectiveness of Energy Efficiency Measures Exceeding Current Standards in New Commercial Buildings
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/17/2010
Author: Joshua D Kneifel
Abstract: Building energy efficiency has become a top priority for governments across the globe due to the recent energy price volatility and increasing concern regarding climate change. New buildings are considered the easiest and least costly way in which to ...

Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 85-3273-25
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/15/2010
Authors: Amy S. Rushing, Joshua D Kneifel, Barbara C. Lippiatt
Abstract: This is the April 2010 edition of energy price indices and discount factors for performing life-cycle cost analyses of energy and water conservation and renewable energy projects in federal facilities. It will be effective from April 1, 2010 to March ...

98. Predicting the In-Service Performance of Materials Exposed to Outdoor Weathering
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/12/2010
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston
Abstract: Test methods were developed to duplicate the failure modes that occur to sealants during exposure in structures. The methods used a systematic approach to identify independent and synergistic effects of various aging factors on the durability of seal ...

99. Phase Compatibility of the Thermoelectric Compounds in the Sr-Ca-Co-O System
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/14/2010
Authors: Winnie K Wong-Ng, Guangyao Liu, Joshua Brooks Martin, Evan L. Thomas, Nathan Lowhorn, James A. Kaduk
Abstract: Two low-dimensional cobaltite series in the Sr-Ca-Co-O system have been investigated for their solid solution limit, structure, and compatibility phase relationships (850 deg C in air). Thermoelectric properties have been measured for selected member ...
