11. Green Button: Building an Interoperable Ecosystem
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/25/2014
Authors: Martin J Burns, John A Teeter, David A Wollman
Abstract: Our goal in the Green Button Initiative is to provide electricity customers with easy access to their energy usage data in a consumer-friendly and computer-friendly format, and to develop an interoperable ecosystem for utilities, manufacturers, and c ...

Topic: Energy
Published: 9/22/2014
Authors: Walter G McDonough, Joy P Dunkers, Amanda Lattam Forster, Jae Hyun Kim, Scott A Wight, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: Since the well-publicized failure of a body armor used by a police officer at a threat level the armor had been designed to survive, it has become imperative that the long-term properties and performance of new fibers being considered for use be unde ...

13. Optimization of Focused Ion Beam-Tomography for Superconducting Electronics
Topic: Energy
Published: 8/27/2014
Authors: Aric Warner Sanders, Anna E Fox, Paul David Dresselhaus, Alexandra E Curtin
Abstract: Superconducting electronics play an important role in quantum computation, ultra-low power electronics, voltage standards and magnetic sensors. Many of these applications rely on the microfabrication of superconducting circuits with multiple wiring l ...

14. Characterization of Buried Structure in Directed Self Assembly Block Copolymers
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/30/2014
Authors: Daniel Franklin Sunday, Matthew R. Hammond, Chengqing C. Wang, Wen-Li Wu, Dean M DeLongchamp, Regis J Kline, Melia Tjio, Joy Cheng, Jed W Pitera
Abstract: The directed self assembly (DSA) of block copolymers (BCP) can multiply or subdivide the pitch of a lithographically defined chemical or topological pattern and is a resolution enhancement candidate to augment conventional lithography for patterning ...

15. Nanoparticle Released from Consumer Products: Flooring Nanocoatings and Interior Nanopaints
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1835
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/21/2014
Authors: Li Piin Sung, Tinh Nguyen, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: Nanoparticles are increasingly incorporated in flooring coatings and interior paints to improve their abrasion and microbial resistance. One particular concern of this application is the release of nanoparticles from these surfaces due to repeated m ...

16. Standards Related to Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) for Manufacturing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8012
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/7/2014
Authors: Gregory W Vogl, Brian A Weiss, M Alkan Donmez
Abstract: Prognostics and health management (PHM) systems are utilized to reduce burdensome maintenance tasks of monitored products or processes through diagnostics and prognostics, which provide actionable information that support decision-making for impr ...

17. Horizontal Convective Boiling of R134a, R1234yf/R134a, and R1234ze(E)within a Micro-Fin Tube
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/24/2014
Authors: Mark A Kedzierski, ki-jung park
Abstract: This report presents local convective boiling measurements in a micro-fin tube for R134a and two low global warming potential (GWP ) refrigerants: R1234yf/ R134a, 56/44 % mass and R1234ze(E). The heat transfer coefficient of the three test fluids w ...

18. Effects of Temperature on Surface Accumulation and Release of Silica Nanoparticles in an Epoxy Nanocoating Exposed to UV Radiation
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/16/2014
Authors: Chun-Chieh Tien, Ching-Hsuan Chang, Bernard Hao-Chih Liu, Deborah L Stanley, Savelas A Rabb, Lee Lijian Yu, Tinh Nguyen, Li Piin Sung
Abstract: Polymer nanocoatings are increasingly used outdoors and in harsh environments. However, because most common polymers degraded by the weathering elements, nanoparticles in polymer nanocoatings may be released into the environments. Such nanoparticle r ...

19. Capturing Carbon Dioxide as a Polymer from Natural Gas
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/3/2014
Authors: Chih-Chau Hwang, Josiah J. Tour, Carter Kittrell, Laura Espinal, Jim M. Tour, Lawrence Alemany
Abstract: Natural gas is considered the cleanest and recently the most abundant fossil fuel source, yet when it is extracted from wells, it often contains >10 mole% CO2 which is generally vented to the atmosphere. Efforts are underway to contain this CO2 ...

20. Large-area irradiance-mode spectral response measurements of solar cells by a light-emitting-diode- based integrating sphere source
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/30/2014
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Andrew M. Shore, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: An irradiance-mode absolute differential spectral response measurement system based on a light emitting diode (LED) array is described. The LEDs are coupled to an integrating sphere whose output irradiance is uniform to better than 2 % over an ar ...
