91. Thermal Decomposition Kinetics of Kerosene-based Rocket Propellants. 2. RP-2 with Three Additives
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/9/2009
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The thermal decomposition of RP-2 with three potential stabilizing additives was investigated. The additives were 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline (THQ), 1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene (tetralin) and the additive package that is used to make JP-8+100 (here ...

92. Reduce Costs and Increase Quality with Information Exchange Standards for Manufacturing Quality
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/4/2009
Author: John A Horst
Abstract: With the proliferation of computers to process, store, and transfer information, manufacturers are suffering increasing costs due to information incompatibilities. The information incompatibility problem in manufacturing quality is costly to everyo ...

93. Spectroradiometric Characterization of the NIST Pulsed Solar Simulator
Topic: Energy
Published: 8/20/2009
Authors: Howard W Yoon, Brian P Dougherty, Vladimir Khromchenko
Abstract: The spectroradiometric characterization of the NIST indoor pulsed solar simulator is described. The solar simulator has a flash duration of 36.4 ms and is designed for solar panels having a maximum size of 2.0 m by 1.6 m. As per industry standards, ...

94. Application of Thermal Gradients to Achieve Orientational Order in Block Copolymer Thin Films
Topic: Energy
Published: 8/18/2009
Authors: Nathaniel J Fredin, Brian Berry, Kevin G. Yager, Alamgir Karim, Sushil K Satija, Deanna Pickel, Ronald Leland Jones
Abstract: The development of methods that permit control over the long-range order and orientation of microdomains in block copolymer (BCP) thin films for bottom-up approaches to nanoscale surface patterning is of great interest for many applications, includ ...

95. Development of a Seebeck Coefficient Standard Reference Material
Topic: Energy
Published: 8/7/2009
Authors: Nathan Lowhorn, Winnie K Wong-Ng, John Lu, Evan L. Thomas, Makoto Otani, Martin L Green, Neil Dilley, Jeffrey Sharp, Thanh N. Tran
Abstract: We have successfully developed a Seebeck coefficient Standard Reference Material (SRM ), Bi2Te3, that is crucial for interlaboratory data comparison and for instrument calibration. Certification measurements were performed using two different techniq ...

96. Reduced Nonlinearities and Improved Temperature Measurements for the NIST Johnson Noise Thermometer
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/31/2009
Authors: Jifeng Qu, Samuel Paul Benz, Horst Rogalla, D. R White
Abstract: The variance of temperature measurements made with the NIST Johnson noise thermometer has been reduced by use of improved cross-correlation electronics and a unique method for measuring and reducing nonlinearities. The spectral response of the voltag ...

97. Composition-Explicit Distillation Curves for Mixtures of Diesel Fuel with Dimethyl Carbonate and Diethyl Carbonate
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/14/2009
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Arron Wolk, Alexander Naydich, Marcia L Huber
Abstract: We have recently introduced several important improvements in the measurement of distillation curves of complex fluids. The modifications to the classical measurement provide for (1) a composition explicit data channel for each distillate fraction ...

98. A Comparison of the Hypersonic Vehicle Fuel JP-7 to the Rocket Propellants RP-1 and RP-2 Using the Advanced Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/15/2009
Authors: Tara M Lovestead, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: JP-7 is a hydrocarbon-based kerosene fraction with a low volatility and high thermal stability. JP-7 was developed in the 1950s to meet the more stringent requirements necessary for the development of high-altitude reconnaissance planes that fly at ...

99. Thermoelectric and Structural Characterization of Ba2Ho(Cu3-xCox)O6+y
Topic: Energy
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 ...

100. A High-throughput Screening System for Thermoelectric Material Exploration Based on Combinatorial Film Approach
Topic: Energy
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 ...
