41. Innovative Approach to Rapid Growth of Highly Clay-Filled Coatings on Porous Polyurethane Foam
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 6/11/2012
Authors: Yeon Seok Kim, Richard H. Harris Jr., Rick D Davis
Abstract: : An innovative twist to fabricating layer-by-layer coatings resulted in transparent, high-content clay coatings on porous polyurethane foam. The addition of an anionic poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) monolayer between anionic clay and cationic branched-pol ...

42. Measurements, Standards, and Data In Support of Sustainable Materials and Materials-Related Technologies
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 4/1/2012
Authors: Dianne L Poster, Michael J Fasolka, Richard R Cavanagh, Ellyn S. Beary
Abstract: Industry is increasingly aware that sustainability combines environmental, societal, and economic considerations in product development and that this linkage, while driving improved performance, can pose both a business opportunity and a challenge. ...

43. Transitory Temperatures of Organic-Film Coated Specimens under Outdoor Exposure
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 3/2/2012
Authors: William C. Thomas, Christopher C White, Walter Eric Byrd
Abstract: A mathematical model is presented and validated for predicting the temperature of thin polymeric films bonded to substrate materials. The National Institute of Standards and Technology provided specimen temperature and simultaneous weather data for t ...

44. State-of-the-Art Comparability of Corrected Emission Spectra-Part II: Peer-toPeer Assessment of Calibration Performance Using Spectral Fluorescence Standards
Topic: Environment/Climate
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 ...

45. Characterizing Equilibrium in Epitaxial Growth
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 2/20/2012
Authors: Paul N Patrone, Russel Caflisch, Dionisios Margetis
Abstract: Using a kinetic model of epitaxial growth, we describe how geometry controls kinetic pathways through which external deposition influences the state of a vicinal surface. The state of the surface is determined by three key, adjustable parameters: th ...

46. A test method for monitoring changes during durability tests on building joint sealants
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 2/8/2012
Authors: Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan
Abstract: The durability of building joint sealants is generally assessed using a descriptive methodology involving visual inspection for defects. It is widely known that this methodology has many inherent limitations and is only qualitative in nature. A new ...

47. Ultrafast Demagnetization Measurements using Extreme Ultraviolet Light: Comparison of Electronic and Magnetic Contributions
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 1/23/2012
Authors: Thomas J Silva, Justin M Shaw, Hans Toya Nembach, Margaret M. Murnane, Henry C. Kapteyn, Chan La-O-Vorakiat, Stefan Mathias, Emrah Turgut, Teale A. Carson, Martin Aeschlimann, Claus M. Schneider
Abstract: Ultrashort pulses of extreme ultraviolet light from high-harmonic generation are a new tool for probing coupled charge, spin, and phonon dynamics with element specificity, attosecond pump-probe synchronization, and time resolution of a few-femtosecon ...

48. Absorption Coefficient of Particle-Laden Filters using the Laser Heating: Validation with Nigrosin
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 1/22/2012
Author: Cary Presser
Abstract: A novel laser-heating technique, referred to as the laser-driven thermal reactor, was used in conjunction with laser transmission to determine the absorption coefficient (and imaginary part of the refractive index) of aggregated particles on substrat ...

49. Interlaboratory Analytical Comparison Study to Support Deepwater Horizon Natural Resource Damage Assessment: Description and Results for Marine Sediment QA10SED01
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7792
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 11/2/2011
Authors: Michele Miller Schantz, John Kucklick
Abstract: To support natural resource damage assessment (NRDA) in response to the Deep Water Horizon (DWH) oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, a large number of coastal sediment and tissue samples (i.e., oysters) have been collected to define baseline environme ...

50. Strategies for Nanoscale Contour Metrology using Critical Dimension Atomic Force Microscopy
Topic: Environment/Climate
Published: 9/30/2011
Authors: Ndubuisi George Orji, Ronald G Dixson, Andras Vladar, Michael T Postek
Abstract: Contour metrology is one of the techniques used to verify optical proximity correction (OPC) in lithography models. The use of these methods, which are known as resolution enhancement techniques (RET), are necessitated by the continued decrease in f ...
