1. 3D Nanoscale Characterization of Thin-Film Organic Photovoltaic Device Structures via Spectroscopic Contrast in the TEM
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/21/2010
Authors: Andrew A Herzing, Lee J Richter, Ian M. Anderson
Abstract: The three-dimensional characterization of third generation photovoltaic device structures at the nanometer scale is essential to the development of efficient, reliable, and inexpensive solar cell technologies. Electron tomography is a powerful metho ...

2. A Comparison of the Hypersonic Vehicle Fuel JP-7 to the Rocket Propellants RP-1 and RP-2 Using the Advanced Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Energy
Published: 6/15/2009
Authors: Tara M Lovestead, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: JP-7 is a hydrocarbon-based kerosene fraction with a low volatility and high thermal stability. JP-7 was developed in the 1950s to meet the more stringent requirements necessary for the development of high-altitude reconnaissance planes that fly at ...

3. A Determination of the Ratio of the Zinc Freezing Point to the Tin Freezing Point by Noise Thermometry
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/12/2007
Authors: Weston Leo Tew, John Labenski, Samuel Paul Benz, Sae Woo Nam, Paul David Dresselhaus
Abstract: We have used a Johnson-Noise Thermometer (JNT) with a Quantized Voltage Noise Source (QVNS) as a calculable reference to determine the ratio of temperatures near the Zn freezing point to those near the Sn freezing point. The temperatures are derived ...

4. A Dual Mode Evolutionary Algorithm Approach for Designing Optimized Finned-Tube Heat Exchangers
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/27/2012
Authors: David A Yashar, Piotr A Domanski, Janusz Wojusiak, Kenneth Kaufman
Abstract: The efficiency of a vapor compression system is strongly influenced by the performance of the finned-tube heat exchangers it employs. Heat exchanger performance is strongly influenced by the refrigerant circuitry, i.e., the connection sequence of th ...

5. A High-Throughput Thermoelectric Power-Factor Screening Tool for Rapid Construction of Thermoelectric Property Diagrams
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/23/2007
Authors: Makoto Otani, Nathan Lowhorn, Peter K. Schenck, Winnie K Wong-Ng, Martin L Green, K Itaka, H Koinuma
Abstract: We have developed a high throughput screening tool that maps out thermoelectric power factors of combinatorial composition-spread film libraries. The screening tool allows us to measure the electrical conductivity and Seebeck coefficient of over 1000 ...

6. A High-throughput Screening System for Thermoelectric Material Exploration Based on Combinatorial Film Approach
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/7/2009
Authors: Makoto Otani, Evan L. Thomas, Winnie K Wong-Ng, Peter K. Schenck, Nathan Lowhorn, Martin L Green, Hiroyuki Ohguchi
Abstract: A high-throughput system that consists of a combinatorial tool (a sputtering deposition tool and a pulsed laser deposition tool) and two property screening devices, developed at NIST, was used for thermoelectric material exploration. The thermoelectr ...

7. A Machining and Measurement Process Planning Activity Model for Manufacturing System Interoperability Analysis
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7734
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/29/2010
Authors: Fiona Zhao, Frederick M Proctor, John A Horst
Abstract: Manufacturing systems consist of many activities. Each of these activities may include one or more software and hardware. In order to make these software and hardware systems interoperable, the data exchange and share among them must be seamless. How ...

9. 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 ...

10. 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 ...
