291. Effects of Surface Free Energy and Relative Humidity on Friction and Image Contrast Measured with Lateral Force Microscopy
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/3/2010
Authors: Tinh Nguyen, Lijiang Chen, Xiaohong Gu
Abstract: Effects of sample surface free energy (s) and relative humidity (RH) of the tip-sample environment on image contrast and friction characteristics measured with lateral force microscopy (LFM) have been investigated. Samples having a wide range ...

292. Water based Polyurethane Graphene Oxide Nanocomposites
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/3/2010
Authors: Coralie Bernard, Tinh Nguyen, Bastien T. Pellegrin, Mat Celina, Alexander J. Shapiro, Deborah Stanley Jacobs, Kar T. Tan, Sungjin Park, R. S. Ruoff, Joannie W Chin
Abstract: Graphene oxides are potentially a new class of nanomaterial to enhance multifunctional properties of polymers because of their remarkable thermal conductivity, mechanical strength, and more importantly, low cost. The graphene oxides, produced by exfo ...

293. Effects of Accelerated Ultraviolet (UV) Weathering on Firefighter Protective Clothing Outer Shell Fabrics
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1657
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/25/2010
Authors: Rick D Davis, Joannie W Chin, Chiao-Chi Lin
Abstract: The Outer Shell of the jacket and pants of the firefighter s protective clothing is constructed of a fabric that is commonly a blend of polyaramid, polybenzimidazole, and/or poly(melamine-formaldehyde) fibers. The Outer Shell contributes to the ther ...

294. Effect of chain architecture on the viscoelastic properties of polymer films measured via thermal wrinkling
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/21/2010
Authors: Edwin P Chan, Qinghuang Lin, Christopher M Stafford
Abstract: Although existing techniques can measure the viscoelastic properties of bulk polymers, few are available for measuring these properties in polymer thin films. This information has become increasingly important as polymers thin films are developed in ...

295. Little Things Mean a Lot: Water and the Adhesive Bond
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/21/2010
Authors: Donald Lee Hunston, Kar T. Tan, Bryan D. Vogt, Sushil K. Satija, Cyril Clerici, David E. White
Abstract: The ability of water to dramatically weaken many types of adhesive bonds has been widely studied. One surprising result is the existence of a critical moisture level in the bond. Above this level the strength drops to very low values. Numerous stu ...

296. The Effects of Humidity and Surface Free Energy on Adhesion Force between AFM Tip and a Silane Self-Assembled Monolayer Film
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/17/2010
Authors: Chien-Chao Huang, Lijiang Chen, , Xiaohong Gu, Minhua Zhao, Tinh Nguyen, Sanboh Lee
Abstract: The relationship between AFM probe-sample adhesion force and relative humidity (RH) at five different levels of surface free energy (γs) of an organic self-assembled monolayer (SAM) has been investigated. Different γs levels were achieved b ...

297. Rational synthesis and characterization of a new family of low thermal conductivity misfit layered compounds [(PbSe)0.99]m[(WSe2)]n
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/9/2010
Authors: Ian M. Anderson, Michael D. Anderson, Qiyin Lin, Mary Smeller, Colby L. Heideman, Paul Zschack, Mikio Koyano, Robert Kykyneshi, Douglas A. Keszler, David C Johnson
Abstract: We describe here a general synthesis approach for the preparation of new families of misfit layer compounds and demonstrate its effectiveness through the preparation of the first 64 members of the [(PbSe)0.99]m(WSe2)n family of compounds, where m and ...

298. Applications of Thermogravimetric Analysis in Quality Control of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/1/2010
Authors: Elisabeth Mansfield, Aparna Kar, Stephanie A Hooker
Abstract: Carbon nanotube exhibit a range of chemistries, including mixtures of different nanotube diameters, lengths and chiralities, coupled with various concentrations of metallic and non-nanotube carbon impurities. The performance of a given material for ...

299. Effects of Plasmon-Exciton Coupling on the Optical Properties of CdSe/Zns Quantum Dots Coupled to Gold Nanoparticles
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/25/2010
Authors: Shin G. Chou, Hyeong G. Kang, Matthew Lawrence Clarke, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: By using a multi-color, multi-modal imaging platform, we look into the effects of exciton-plasmon coupling on a semiconductor quantum dot (QD) that is coupled to a nearby gold nanoparticles (AuNP). By exciting this coupled material with laser excita ...

300. Bending of a Bimetallic Beam due to the Kirkendall Effect
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/1/2010
Authors: William J Boettinger, Geoffrey B McFadden
Abstract: The time dependent bending of single phase and two phase bimetal strips due to interdiffusion is computed. The model couples simple beam theory and diffusion, the bending being due to the creation and /annihilation of vacancies necessitated by unequa ...
