291. Studying Long-term Performance of a Nano-ZnO filled Waterborne Polyurethane Coating using Spectroscopies and Microscopies
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 9/9/2009
Authors: Xiaohong Gu, Dongmei Zhe, Stephanie S Watson, Guodong Chen, Minhua Zhao, Paul E Stutzman, Deborah L Stanley, Tinh Nguyen, Joannie W Chin, Jonathan W. Martin
Abstract: Although inorganic UV absorbers such as zinc oxide (ZnO) and cerium oxide (CeO2) exhibit numerous advantages compared to organic UV absorbers, the mechanisms of how these nanoparticles affect the long-term performance of polymeric coatings are less t ...

292. Elastic Modulus of Amorphous Polymer Thin Films: Relationship to the Glass Transition Temperature
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/24/2009
Authors: Jessica M. Torres, Christopher M Stafford, Bryan D. Vogt
Abstract: Understanding the mechanical properties of polymers at the nanoscale is critical in numerous emerging applications. While it has been widely shown that the Tg in thin polymer films decreases due to confinement effects, there is little known about th ...

293. Methods for TEM analysis of NIST s single-walled carbon nanotube Standard Reference Material
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/20/2009
Authors: Elisabeth Mansfield, Roy H. Geiss, Jeffrey A Fagan
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is releasing a series of single-walled carbon nanotube Standard Reference Materials (SRMs) to provide consumers with a well-characterized material for their applications. The SWCNT Reference ...

294. Glassy Carbon as an Absolute Intensity Calibration Standard for Small Angle Scattering
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/19/2009
Authors: Andrew John Allen, Jan Ilavsky, Fan Zhang, Gabrielle G Long, Pete R. Jemian
Abstract: Absolute calibration of small-angle scattering (SAS) intensity data (in units of differential cross-section per unit sample volume per unit solid angle) is essential for many important aspects of quantitative SAS analysis, such as obtaining the numbe ...

295. Synthesis, characterization and evaluation of novel, anti-bacterial monomers for dental and biomedical applications
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/16/2009
Authors: Joseph M Antonucci, Bruce Owen Fowler, Diana N. Zeiger, Nancy J Lin, Sheng Lin-Gibson
Abstract: Although progress has been made in reducing polymerization shrinkage through resin and filler phase modifications, and in designing improved dental adhesion systems, composite fillings still fail clinically because of bacterial infiltration and secon ...

296. Diffusion Under Temperature Gradient: A Phase-field Model Study
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/11/2009
Authors: Rashmi R. Mohanty, Jonathan E Guyer, Yong Ho Sohn
Abstract: A diffuse interface model was devised and employed to investigate the effect of thermotransport (a.k.a., thermomigration) process in single-phase and multi-phase alloys of a binary system. Simulation results show that an applied temperature gradien ...

Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/3/2009
Authors: Chiara F Ferraris, Zughuo Li, Mona Mohseni, Nicholas Franson
Abstract: Oil is the most used standard material for the calibration of rheometers. Other products are used to calibrate flow devices, i.e., the flow table is calibrated using a mixture of oil and silica powder. The oil is a Newtonian liquid while the oil-sili ...

298. Moisture Attack on Adhesive Joints: Roles of Adhesive and Interface Properties
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/22/2009
Authors: Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan, Sushil K. Satija, Christopher C White, Bryan D. Vogt, Cyril Clerici
Abstract: It is well-known that moisture will attack many adhesive joints. A particularly interesting feature is the observation that when the moisture level in certain systems exceeds a critical concentration, the bonded joint shows a dramatic loss of streng ...

299. Optimization of arrays of gold nanodisks for plasmon-mediated Brillouin light scattering
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/22/2009
Authors: Ward L Johnson, Sudook A. Kim, Zhandos Utegulov, B. T. Draine
Abstract: Distributions of electric fields in two-dimensional arrays of gold nanodisks on a Si3N4 membrane, with light incident through the membrane, are modeled with the aim of determining array geometries for effective plasmon-mediated Brillouin light scat ...

300. Long-Term Performance of Nano-Filled Polymeric Materials: Effect of ZnO Nanoparticles on Photodegradation of a Waterborne Polyurethane Coating
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/8/2009
Authors: Xiaohong Gu, Dongmei Zhe, Minhua Zhao, Guodong Chen, Nhieu Ly, Paul E Stutzman, Li Piin Sung, Tinh Nguyen, Joannie W Chin
Abstract: Polymers are widely used as exterior coatings in buildings, bridges, aircrafts and automobiles for both protection and aesthetic purposes. However, the service life of the applied coatings is limited due to the photodegradation of polymers induced by ...
