91. 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 ...

92. 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 ...

93. 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 ...

94. 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 ...

95. 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 ...

96. 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 ...

97. 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 ...

98. Improvements in the NIST Johnson Noise Thermometry System
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/1/2009
Authors: Samuel Paul Benz, Jifeng Qu, Horst Rogalla, D. R White, Paul David Dresselhaus, Weston Leo Tew, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We have developed a Johnson noise thermometry (JNT) system that is calibrated by precision waveforms synthesized with a quantized voltage noise source (QVNS). Significant improvements to the QVNS and the cross-correlation measurement electronics have ...

99. Thermopower of Co-doped FeSe0.82
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/1/2009
Authors: Evan L. Thomas, Winnie K Wong-Ng, Daniel P. Phelan
Abstract: The effect of cobalt doping (0.05 ≤ x ≤ 0.50) on the thermopower of the newly discovered superconductor FeSe0.82 is investigated through electrical and thermal transport measurements. Our results point to the destruction of superconducti ...

100. Composition-Explicit Distillation Curves for Mixtures of Gasoline with Four-Carbon Alcohols (Butanols)
Topic: Energy
Published: 3/9/2009
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Arron Wolk, Alexander Naydich
Abstract: Interest in the domestic production of bio-derived fuels, sparked by the high cost of petroleum crude oil, has lead to consideration of fluids to replace or extend conventional petroleum derived fuels. While ethanol as a gasoline extender has receive ...
