11. A Quantitative Study of Nanoparticle Release from Nanocoatings Exposed to UV Radiation
Topic: Energy
Published: 4/7/2014
Authors: Li Piin Sung, Deborah L Stanley, Justin M Gorham, Savelas A Rabb, Xiaohong Gu, Lee Lijian Yu, Tinh Nguyen
Abstract: Nanoparticles are increasingly used in polymer coatings (i.e., nanocoatings) to improve multiple properties of traditional coatings such as mechanical, electrical, gas barrier, and UV resistance. These high performance nanocoatings are often used in ...

12. Composite thermophysical property characterization of hydrotreated renewable and Fischer-Tropsch synthetic fuels
Topic: Energy
Published: 3/16/2014
Authors: Peter Y. Hsieh, Jason A Widegren, Tara J Fortin, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The rising cost of petroleum is driving the development of alternative hydrocarbon fuels for transportation. Hydrotreated renewable fuels and Fischer-Tropsch synthetic fuels are promising alternatives to conventional petroleum, and are chemically sim ...

14. Role of salt on adhesion of an epoxy/aluminium (oxide) interface in aqueous environments
Topic: Energy
Published: 2/16/2014
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Justin M Gorham, Aaron M Forster, Vogt D Bryan
Abstract: The durability of adhesive joints in hostile environments is a major area of concern in structural adhesive bonding. Therefore, understanding the mechanics and mechanisms of degradation of adhesive joints is a key factor for more extensive use in fut ...

15. Template synthesis of gold nanoparticles with an organic molecular cage
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/16/2014
Authors: Ryan McCaffrey, Hai Long, Yinghua Jin, Aric Warner Sanders, Wounjhang Park, Wei Zhang
Abstract: We report a novel strategy for the controlled synthesis of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) with narrow size distribution (1.9 {plus or minus} 0.4 nm) through NP nucleation and growth inside the cavity of a well-defined three-dimensional, shape-persist ...

16. Applications of Surface Metrology in Firearm Identification
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/8/2014
Authors: Xiaoyu A Zheng, Johannes A Soons, Theodore Vincent Vorburger, Jun-Feng Song, Thomas B Renegar, Robert Meryln Thompson
Abstract: Surface metrology is commonly used to characterize functional engineering surfaces. The technologies developed offer opportunities to improve forensic toolmark identification. Toolmarks are created when a tool comes into contact with a surface an ...

17. Applications of Surface Metrology in Toolmark Identification
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/8/2014
Authors: Xiaoyu A Zheng, Johannes A Soons, Theodore Vincent Vorburger, Jun-Feng Song, Thomas B Renegar, Robert Meryln Thompson
Abstract: Surface metrology is commonly used to characterize functional engineering surfaces. The technologies developed offer opportunities to improve forensic toolmark identification. In 2009, a report by the National Academies called into question, amon ...

18. Fast and Reliable Spectral Response Measurements of PV Cells Using Light Emitting Diodes
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/1/2014
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: We present a measurement system for absolute differential spectral responsivity of solar cells based on high-powered LED arrays coupled to an optical light guide capable of large area illumination. Two different measurement techniques were developed ...

19. Mapping the Local Photo-Electronic Properties of Polycrystalline Solar Cells through High Resolution Laser-Beam-Induced Current Microscopy
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/1/2014
Authors: Marina S. Leite, Maxim Abashin, Henri J Lezec, Anthony G Gianfrancesco, Albert A. Talin, Nikolai B Zhitenev
Abstract: To boost the efficiency of thin film polycrystalline solar cells that are microscopically inhomogeneous, it is imperative to understand how the grain cores (GCs) and grain boundaries (GBs) within these materials affect its overall electronic properti ...

20. Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotube Layer-by-Layer Coatings With a Novel Trilayer Structure to Reduce Foam Flammability
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/29/2013
Authors: Rick D Davis, Yeon S. Kim, Amanda A Cain, Jaime C. Grunlan
Abstract: The research presented here is the first report of fabricating multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) based thin coatings on polyurethane foam (PUF) using Layer-by-Layer assembly, and using MWCNTs to reduce the flammability of PUF. The (440.6 ± 47.1) ...
