41. Confocal Microscopy Analysis of Breech Face Marks on Fired Cartridge Cases from Ten Consecutively Manufactured Pistol Slides
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/1/2012
Authors: Xiaoyu A Zheng, Robert Meryln Thompson, Todd Weller
Abstract: Ten (10) pistol slides with consecutively manufactured breech faces, were obtained from Sturm, Ruger Co, Inc. A total of nine (9) test fires from each pistol, for a total of ninety (90) test fired cartridge cases, were compared using comparison micr ...

42. A versatile light-emitting-diode-based spectral response measurement system for photovoltaic device characterization
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/29/2012
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: An absolute differential spectral response measurement system for solar cells is presented. The system couples an array of light emitting diodes (LEDs) with an optical waveguide to provide large area illumination. Two unique yet complementary measur ...

43. Application of the Advanced Distillation Curve Method to the Variability of Jet Fuels
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/24/2012
Authors: Jessica Lynne Burger, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: In this paper, we report the application of the advanced distillation-curve approach to the gas turbine fuels Jet-A, JP-8, and JP-5, in order to obtain information about the variability of these gas turbine fuels. The measurements of the temperatures ...

44. Inelastic Neutron Scattering on Polymer Electrolytes for Lithium-Ion Batteries
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/7/2012
Authors: Huagen H. Peng, Madhu Sudan Tyagi, Kirt A. Page, Christopher L Soles
Abstract: The relationship between ion transport and polymer dynamics is central to the pursuit of solid polymer electrolytes for lithium batteries. This understanding is critical to achieve solid polymer electrolyte systems of sufficiently high ion conductiv ...

45. CYCLE_D: NIST Vapor Compression Cycle Design Program Version 5.0
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/1/2012
Authors: J S Brown, Piotr A Domanski, Eric W Lemmon

Topic: Energy
Published: 4/4/2012
Authors: Walter G McDonough, Amanda Lattam Forster, Haruki Kobayashi, Jae Hyun Kim, Michael A Riley, Joy P Dunkers, Scott A Wight, Kirk D Rice, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: The goal of this paper and presentation is to give an overview of the research effort to date being conducted at the National Institute of Standards and Technology on polymeric fibers used in soft body armor (SBA) and a discussion of future direction ...

47. State-of-the-Art Comparability of Corrected Emission Spectra-Part II: Peer-toPeer Assessment of Calibration Performance Using Spectral Fluorescence Standards
Topic: Energy
Published: 2/28/2012
Authors: Paul C DeRose, Joanne C Zwinkels, Bernd Ebert
Abstract: The tremendous growth of fluorescence applications in the life and material sciences has proceeded largely without sufficient concern for the reliability and uncertainties related to the characterization and performance validation of fluorescence ins ...

48. The Effects of Folding on High Strength Fibers Used in Soft Body Armor
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/23/2012
Authors: Haruki Kobayashi, Walter G McDonough, Joy P Dunkers, Jae Hyun Kim, Hae-Jeong Lee, Scott A Wight, Amanda Lattam Forster, Kirk D Rice, Gale Antrus Holmes
Abstract: Poly (p-phenylene benzobisoxazole) (PBO) fibers have been used in soft body armor (SBA) because of their high mechanical strength. However, there was an unexpected failure of a first responder‰s SBA which was composed of PBO fiber that was in service ...

49. Towards realization of a large-area, LED-based solar simulator
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/27/2011
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, Kangbin Chua, John F Roller, Howard W Yoon, Brian P Dougherty
Abstract: LED-based solar simulators have shown great promise as alternative light sources for indoor testing of PV cells as compared to their traditional counterparts. However, large-area uniform illumination more suitable for larger cells and module measurem ...

50. Demand Response and Standards: Enabling a New Role for Buildings in the Smart Grid
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/1/2011
Author: David G Holmberg
Abstract: The role of buildings in the electric grid is steadily being transformed to that of active participant in managing the grid, serving as a key player in maintaining grid reliability. The necessity for this transformation is based on three factors: gri ...
