313. MORPHOLOGY AND FRACTURE OF ENAMEL
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 9/16/2009
Authors: Sang-Won Myoung, James J. Lee, Paul Constantino, Peter Lucas, Brian Ronald Lawn
Abstract: Teeth are remarkable biological structures, brittle but resilient. Here we examine the inter-relation between enamel morphology and crack resistance by sectioning human molar teeth after loading to fracture. The sections reveal that many cracks s ...

314. An electrical pulse-heated Kosky bar technique for high strain rate flow stress measurements of rapidly heated metals
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 9/13/2009
Authors: Steven P Mates, Stephen W Banovic, Richard L. Rhorer, Timothy J Burns, Eric Paul Whitenton, D Basak
Abstract: We have developed a unique electrical pulse-heated Kolsky Bar technique for measuring the flow stress of metals at heating rates of up to 6000 °C per second and strain rates up to 10^4 per second. Under these conditions, which are approaching those f ...

316. Condensed Matter Astrophysics A Prescription for Determining the Species-Specific Composition and Quantity of Interstellar Dust using X-rays
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 9/10/2009
Authors: Bruce D Ravel, Julia C. Lee, Jingen Xiang, Jeffrey Kortright, Kathryn Flanagan
Abstract: We present a new technique for determining the quantity and composition of dust in astrophysical environments using < 6 keV X-rays. We argue that high resolution X-ray spectra as enabled by the Chandra and XMM-Newton gratings should be considered ...

317. 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 X. Gu, Dongmei Zhe, Stephanie S Watson, Guodong Chen, Minhua Zhao, Paul E Stutzman, Deborah L Stanley, Tinh T. 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 ...

318. 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 ...

320. 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 ...
