61. Large-area irradiance-mode spectral response measurements of solar cells by a light-emitting-diode- based integrating sphere source
Topic: Energy
Published: 5/30/2014
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Andrew M Shore, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: An irradiance-mode absolute differential spectral response measurement system based on a light emitting diode (LED) array is described. The LEDs are coupled to an integrating sphere whose output irradiance is uniform to better than 2 % over an ar ...

62. Life-Cycle Carbon and Cost Analysis of Energy Efficiency Measures in New Commercial Buildings
Topic: Energy
Published: 3/1/2010
Author: Joshua D Kneifel
Abstract: Building energy efficiency has become a top priority due to the recent energy price spikes and increasing concern regarding climate change. It is easier and less costly to increase energy efficiency in new buildings than in existing buildings, making ...

63. Linking Degree of Filler Dispersion to Photodegradation Rate in a NanoTiO2-Latex Coating: An Accelerated Weathering Study
Topic: Energy
Published: 9/4/2011
Authors: Li Piin Sung, Yongyan Pang, Stephanie S Watson
Abstract: The objective of this study is to investigate the influence of the filler dispersion of nano-TiO2 in polymeric coatings on the surface morphology evolution of the coatings under UV exposure. Two types of nano-TiO2 with different surface treatments we ...

64. Local Structure of Cu in Cs8Na16Cu5Ge131 Type II Clathrate
Topic: Energy
Published: 1/8/2009
Authors: Winnie K Wong-Ng, Azzam Mansour, Matthew Beekman, George S. Nolas
Abstract: We have used X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) to investigate the local structure of Cu and Ge in the Cs8Na16Cu5Ge131 type II clathrate. We show that the local structure parameters, coordination number, and distances for Ge are consistent with thos ...

Topic: Energy
Published: 4/13/2011
Authors: Deogratias Kibira, Guodong Shao, Stephen Nowak
Abstract: The production capacity of corn ethanol as a transportation fuel is experiencing rapid growth in the United States. The demand is driven by increased prices of gasoline, government mandates, incentives, desire for cleaner fuels, and the need to achie ...

66. Maintainers Manual for Version 2.2.1 of the NIST DMIS Test Suite
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7720
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/25/2010
Authors: Thomas Rollin Kramer, John A Horst
Abstract: This manual is a maintainers manual for the NIST DMIS Test Suite, version 2.2.1. DMIS (Dimensional Measuring Interface Standard) is a language for writing programs for coordinate measuring machines and other dimensional measurement equipment. The ma ...

67. Mapping Heterogeneity in NanoTiO2/Polymer Coatings Using Confocal Microscopy and Depth Sensing Indentation
Topic: Energy
Published: 10/14/2009
Author: Li Piin Sung
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to develop relevant metrology to measure the appropriate structure-property relationship at a proper length scale to understand the interplay between nanoparticle and polymeric matrix. In this paper, we present the prelim ...

68. Mapping Strategic Goals and Operational Performance Metrics for Smart Manufacturing Systems
Topic: Energy
Published: 3/16/2015
Authors: Kiwook Jung, Kevin W Lyons, Swee Kong Leong, Hyunbo Cho, Katherine C Morris
Abstract: The complexity of the relationship of strategic goals to operational performance across the many levels of a manufacturing system inhibits the realization of Smart Manufacturing Systems (SMS). This paper proposes a method for identifying what asp ...

69. Measuring the Structure of Epitaxially Assembled Block Copolymer Domains with Soft X-ray Diffraction
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/30/2009
Authors: Gila Stein, James Alexander Liddle, Andrew Aquila, Eric M Gullikson
Abstract: The size, shape, and roughness of poly(styrene-b-methyl methacrylate) block copolymer domains assembled on an epitaxial template are characterized with soft x-ray diffraction. The domain size and shape are deformed when the dimensions of the epitax ...

70. Microdomain Ordering in Laterally Confined Block Copolymer Thin Films
Topic: Energy
Published: 11/29/2007
Authors: August W. Bosse, Carlos Garcia-Cervera, Glenn Fredrickson
Abstract: We examine the effects of small-scale, hexagonal, lateral confinement on microdomain ordering in $AB$ diblock copolymer thin films using self-consistent field theory (SCFT) simulations. Specifically, we examine a hexagonal confinement well with side ...
