91. Chemical Science and Technology Laboratory (CSTL) 2009 Annual Report
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/17/2009
Authors: Willie E May, Richard R Cavanagh, Dianne L Poster, Michael D. Amos
Abstract: CSTL is entrusted with building, sustaining, and maximizing the chemical measurement system that is criticial to chemical technological innovation, economic competitiveness and new job growth for the benefit of the Nation.

92. Interoperability and the DMIS experience
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/30/2009
Author: John A Horst
Abstract: Because they enable true interoperability, information exchange standards can help manufacturers reduce cost and improve product quality, but only if the standards are developed and implemented correctly. We will answer questions manufacturers and su ...

93. Mapping Heterogeneity in NanoTiO2/Polymer Coatings Using Confocal Microscopy and Depth Sensing Indentation
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/14/2009
Author: Li Piin Sung
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to develop relevant metrology to measure the appropriate structure-property relationship at a proper length scale to understand the interplay between nanoparticle and polymeric matrix. In this paper, we present the prelim ...

94. Effect of RP-1 Compositional Variability on Thermophysical Properties
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/6/2009
Authors: Marcia L Huber, Eric W Lemmon, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: We compare experimental and predicted thermophysical properties of two samples of rocket propellant RP-1 obtained from different batches of RP-1 that exhibit compositional variations. One sample is atypical, due to a high olefin content. The effect o ...

95. Thermal Decomposition Kinetics of Kerosene-based Rocket Propellants. 1. Comparison of RP-1 and RP-2
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/11/2009
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The decomposition kinetics of the kerosene-based rocket propellants RP-1 and RP-2 was studied. For RP-2, decomposition reactions were performed at 375, 400, 425, and 450 {degree}C. For RP-1, decomposition reactions were only performed at 450 {degree} ...

96. 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 ...

97. 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 ...

98. 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, ...

99. 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 ...

100. 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 ...
