51. Johnson-noise thermometry based on a quantized-voltage noise source at NIST
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/11/2013
Authors: Alessio Pollarolo, Tae H. Jeong, Samuel Paul Benz, Paul David Dresselhaus, Horst Rogalla, Weston Leo Tew
Abstract: Johnson Noise Thermometry is an electronic approach to measuring temperature. For several years, NIST has been developing a switching-correlator-type Johnson-noise thermometer that uses a quantized voltage noise source as an accurate voltage referenc ...

52. Thermal Stability of RP-2 as a Function of Composition: The Effect of Linear, Branched, and Cyclic Alkanes
Topic: Energy
Published: 8/22/2013
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Jason A Widegren
Abstract: The objective of this work was to identify compositional changes that could improve the thermal stability of the kerosene rocket propellant known as RP-2. For this study, we tested the effect of different types of alkanes on the thermal stability of ...

53. Absolute spectral responsivity measurements of solar cells by a hybrid optical technique
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/15/2013
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Brian P Dougherty, Fiona Persaud, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: An irradiance mode, absolute differential spectral response measurement system for solar cells is presented. The system is based on combining the monochromator-based approach of determining the power mode spectral responsivity of cells with an LED-b ...

54. On the Field Evaporation Behavior of c-axis GaN Nanowires in Laser-Pulsed Atom Probe Tomography
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/26/2013
Authors: Matthew David Brubaker, Kristine A Bertness, Norman A Sanford, Brian Gorman, David R Diercks, R Kirchofer
Abstract: GaN has seen use in many applications such as photovoltaics, blue and ultraviolet lasers, and light-emitting diodes with additional research into expanded and new applications. GaN in the form of nanowires present additional possibilities due to th ...

55. Flat Frequency Response in the Electronic Measurement of the Boltzmann Constant
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/1/2013
Authors: Jifeng Qu, Horst Rogalla, Yang Fu, Jianqiang Zhang, Alessio Pollarolo, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: A new quantum voltage calibrated Johnson noise thermometer (JNT) was developed at NIM to demonstrate the electrical approach that determines the Boltzmann constant k by comparing electrical and thermal noise power. A measurement with an integration p ...

56. Johnson Noise Thermometry Measurement of the Boltzmann Constant with a 200 Ohm Sense Resistor
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/1/2013
Authors: Alessio Pollarolo, Tae H. Jeong, Samuel Paul Benz, Horst Rogalla
Abstract: In 2010, NIST measured the Boltzmann constant k with an electronic technique that measured the Johnson noise of a 100 Ω resistor at the triple point of water (TPW) and used a voltage waveform synthesized with a quantized voltage noise source (QV ...

57. A focused super-continuum solar simulator for illuminated solar cell microscopy
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/12/2013
Author: Tasshi Dennis
Abstract: The design and application of a novel, focused solar simulator based on a high-power, super-continuum laser is described. We used the simulator to create micrometer-scale spatial maps of full-spectrum optical beam induced current (FS-OBIC) in sam ...

58. Towards Demand Response Measurement and Verification Standards
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/1/2013
Authors: David G Holmberg, David Hardin, Ed Koch
Abstract: The value and impact of demand response (DR) at grid-scale depends upon the widespread and active participation of a diverse customer base. The level of participation by customers is impacted by financial compensation and return-on-investment. The ro ...

59. Strategies to Achieve Net-Zero Energy Homes: A Framework for Future Guidelines Workshop Summary Report
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1140
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/5/2013
Author: Nancy A McNabb
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Measurement Science Roadmap for Net-Zero Energy Buildings Workshop Report (NIST TN 1660 ‹ March 2010) identified a number of broad challenges to achieving NZE high-performance green buildi ...

60. An Apparatus for Concurrent Measurement of Thermoelectric Material Parameters
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/29/2013
