42. Obstacle Detection and Avoidance from an Automated Guided Vehicle
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 9/18/2014
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, William P Shackleford, Geraldine S Cheok
Abstract: Current automated guided vehicle (AGV) technology typically provides material handling flow along single or dual opposing-flow lanes in manufacturing and distribution facilities. An AGV stops for most any obstacle that may be in its path which then ...

43. A mini-review: Cell response to microscale, nanoscale, and hierarchical patterning of surface structure
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 9/12/2014
Authors: Carl George Simon Jr., Geunhyung Kim, HoJun Jeon
Abstract: Cellular behavior can be influenced by the chemical and physical surface characteristics of biomedical substrates. To understand the relationships between various topographical surface patterns and cellular activities, various types of pattern mo ...

44. New AGV Capabilities are Safety Driven
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 9/3/2014
Authors: Roger V Bostelman, William P Shackleford
Abstract: Current automated guided vehicle (AGV) technology typically provides material handling flow along single or dual opposing-flow lanes in manufacturing and distribution facilities. An AGV stops for most any obstacle that may be in its path which then s ...

45. Multiscale Correlative Measurements of Nanoparticles in Cells
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/26/2014
Authors: Aric Warner Sanders, Kavita M Jeerage, Cindi Schwartz, Alexandra E Curtin, Ann Chiaramonti Chiaramonti Debay
Abstract: Nanoparticles are emerging as invaluable tools in disease diagnosis, disease treatment and imaging contrast enhancement agents. The interactions of nanoparticles with host organisms are complex and affect biological systems over length scales that va ...

47. Understanding the High-Temperature Mechanical Properties of A710 (HSLA-80) Steel Using Complimentary Atom Probe Tomography and Electron Microscopy
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/26/2014
Authors: Ann Chiaramonti Chiaramonti Debay, Jeffrey W Sowards, James R Fekete
Abstract: We investigated the mechanical properties as a function of isothermal annealing in alloy A710 (HSLA-80) using combined atom probe tomography and transmission electron microscopy.

50. Dielectric characterization by microwave cavity perturbation corrected for non-uniform fields
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/23/2014
Authors: Nathan D Orloff, Jan Obrzut, Christian J Long, Thomas F. Lam, James C Booth, David R Novotny, James Alexander Liddle, Pavel Kabos
Abstract: The non-uniform fields that occur due to the slot in the cavity through which the sample is inserted and those due to the sample geometry itself decrease the accuracy of dielectric characterization by cavity perturbation at microwave frequencies. ...
