22. 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 ...

23. 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 ...

24. 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) ...

25. Analyzing a Co-Polymer Aramid Fiber for Use in Soft Body Armor
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/25/2013
Authors: Walter G McDonough, Jae Hyun Kim, Nathanael A Heckert, Amanda Lattam Forster, Scott A Wight, Joy P Dunkers, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: Since the well-publicized failure of body armor used by a police officer, it has become imperative that the long-term properties and performance of new fibers being considered for use be understood. The range of interest is from the molecular proper ...

26. Statistical Prediction of Sealant Modulus Change due to Outdoor Weathering
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/17/2013
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Adam L Pintar, James J Filliben
Abstract: Recently a statistically based model has been created to predict the change in modulus for a sealant exposed to outdoor weathering. The underlying high precision data supporting this model was obtained using the NIST SPHERE (Simulated Photo degrada ...
