81. Spontaneous wrinkling in azlactone-based functional polymer thin films in 2d and 3d geometries for guided nanopatterning
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/4/2013
Authors: Muruganathan Ramanathan, Bradley S Lokitz, Jamie M Messman, Christopher M Stafford, S. Michael Kilbey
Abstract: We report a simple, one step process for developing wrinkling patterns in azlactone-based polymer thin films and brushes in 2D and 3D surfaces. The polymer used in this work wrinkles spontaneously upon deposition and solidification on a substrate wi ...

82. Correlating Chlorine-Induced Changes in Mechanical Properties to Performance in Polyamide-Based Thin Film Composite Membranes
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/26/2013
Authors: Junghyun Lee, Jun Y. Chung, Edwin P Chan, Christopher M Stafford
Abstract: Understanding the degradation of polyamide-based (PA) thin-film composite membranes by chlorine is imperative to develop chlorine-resistant membranes, an important characteristic that is needed to provide the desired long-term performance of membrane ...

83. Extended Feature Set Profile Specification
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1134
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/14/2013
Authors: Melissa K Taylor, Will Chapman, Austin Hicklin, George Kiebuzinski, John Mayer-Splain, Rachel Wallner, Peter Komarinski
Abstract: This specification defines Extended Feature Set (EFS) Profiles - sets of features to be used in latent friction ridge (fingerprint, palmprint or plantar) searches of automated friction ridge identification systems (AFIS). The EFS Profiles are des ...

84. Protective performance of environmentally stressed fabrics containing melamine fiber blends
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/12/2013
Authors: Shonali Nazare, Shaun M. Flynn, Rick D Davis, Joannie W Chin
Abstract: In this study, environmentally stressed OS fabrics containing melamine fiber blends were evaluated for thermal and mechanical properties that are critical to the protective performance of firefighter turnout gear. Environmental stress factors that a ...

85. Measurement of Scattering and Absorption Cross Sections of Microspheres for Wavelengths between 240 nm and 800 nm
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 118.001
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/10/2013
Authors: Lili Wang, Steven J Choquette, Adolfas Kastytis Gaigalas
Abstract: A commercial spectrometer with a 150 mm integrating sphere (IS) detector was used to measure the scattering and absorption cross sections of polystyrene monodisperse microspheres suspended in water. Absorption measurements were performed with the ...

86. Band Offset Determination of Atomic-Layer-Deposited Al2O3 and HfO2 on InP by Internal Photoemission and Spectroscopic Ellipsometry
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/9/2013
Authors: Kun Xu, Oleg A Kirillov, David J Gundlach, Nhan V Nguyen, Pei D Ye, Min Xu, Lin Dong, Hong Sio
Abstract: Band offsets at the interfaces of n- and p-type InP ((100) and (111)A) and atomic-layer-deposited (ALD) Al2O3 were measured with internal photoemission and spectroscopic ellipsometry. Similarly, the band offsets at the interface of semi-insulatin ...

87. Structure and Dynamics Studies of Concentrated Micrometer-Sized Colloidal Suspensions
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/7/2013
Authors: Fan Zhang, Andrew John Allen, Lyle E Levine, Jan Ilavsky, Gabrielle Gibbs Long
Abstract: We present an experimental study of the structural and dynamical properties of concentrated suspensions of a series of different sized polystyrene microspheres dispersed in glycerol for volume fraction concentrations between 10 % and 20 %. The static ...

88. Nanoscale Specific Heat Capacity Measurements Using Optoelectronic Bilayer Microcantilevers
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 12/12/2012
Authors: Brian G. (Brian Gregory) Burke, William A Osborn, Richard Swift Gates, David A LaVan
Abstract: We describe a new technique for optically and electrically detecting and heating bilayer microcantilevers (Pt−SiNx) to high temperatures at fast heating rates for nanoscale specific heat capacity measurements. The bilayer microcantilever acts s ...

89. Capturing nanoscale in network gels by microemulsion polymerization
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 12/3/2012
Authors: Kirt Anthony Page, John Texter, Dustin England
Abstract: Difficulties in capturing nanoscale structure by polymerizing microemulsions have persisted with the use of thermal initiation. Bicontinuous microemulsion polymerization with reactive surfactant monomer and cross-linker was done with only a 20% i ...
