11. 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 ...

12. 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 ...

13. Advanced Distillation Curve Analysis of Marine Diesel Fuel
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/17/2013
Authors: Peter Y. Hsieh, Kathryn Rosemary Abel, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: Ocean-going ships burn heavy fuel oil. The combustion of heavy fuel oil in marine diesel engines emits nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, and particulates into the air. Growing public concern over air quality has led to increased scrutiny of heavy fue ...

14. Advancing Automated Demand Response Technology
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/28/2009
Authors: Steven T Bushby, David G Holmberg
Abstract: For several years electric utilities have implemented a wide variety of programs to curtail load in times of stress on the electricity distribution grid or on generating capacity. Although these programs have shared a common goal of reducing peak ele ...

15. Aging of Polymeric Films used in Protective Glazing Systems
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/7/2015
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan
Abstract: The toughness of polymer and glass laminates or win-dow glazing, are used to protect buildings and occupants from shattered glass resulting from natural disasters (e.g., hurricanes, tornadoes, seismic events), and intentional events (e.g., robbery, t ...

16. Air Flow Distribution through an A-Shaped Evaporator under Dry and Wet Coil Conditions
Topic: Energy
Published: 7/11/2010
Authors: David A Yashar, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: This paper presents a study of the air flow distribution through a residential air-conditioning heat exchanger. The test subject was a finned-tube, A-shaped coil outfitted with a condensation collection pan required for horizontal installation. We ...

17. An Apparatus for Concurrent Measurement of Thermoelectric Material Parameters
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/29/2013
Authors: Raymond L. (Ray) Kallaher, Cory Alexander Maximilian Latham, Fred Sharifi

18. An electronic measurement of the Boltzmann constant
Topic: Energy
Published: 3/30/2011
Authors: Samuel Paul Benz, Alessio Pollarolo, Jifeng Qu, Horst Rogalla, Chiharu Urano, Weston Leo Tew, Paul David Dresselhaus, D. R White
Abstract: The Boltzmann constant was measured by comparing the Johnson noise of a resistor at the triple point of water with a quantum-based voltage reference signal generated with a superconducting Josephson-junction waveform synthesizer. The measured value ...

19. Analysis of Three Different Regression Models to Estimate the Ballistic Performance of New and Environmentally Conditioned Body Armor
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7760
Topic: Energy
Published: 2/14/2011
Authors: Diane Mauchant, Michael A Riley, Kirk D Rice, Amanda Lattam Forster, Dennis D Leber, Daniel Victor Samarov
Abstract: The performance standard for ballistic-resistant body armor published by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), NIJ Standard 0101.06, recommends estimating the perforation performance of body armor by performing a statistical analysis on V50 bal ...

20. 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 ...
