481. The effect of urban trees on the rental price of single-family homes in Portland, Oregon
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/1/2011
Authors: Geoffrey Donovan, David T Butry
Abstract: Few studies have estimated the effect of environmental amenities on the rental price of houses. We address this gap in the literature by quantifying the effect of urban trees on the rental price of single-family homes in Portland, Oregon. We found th ...

482. The evaluation of photo/e-beam complementary grayscale lithography for high topography 3D structure
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/29/2013
Authors: Liya Yu, Richard J Kasica, Robert Dennis Newby, Lei Chen, Vincent K Luciani
Abstract: This article demonstrates and evaluates photo/e-beam grayscale complementary lithography processes for the fabrication of large area, high topography grayscale structure. The combination of these two techniques capitalizes on the capability of photol ...

483. The molecular basis of mesophase ordering in a thiophene-based copolymer
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/18/2009
Authors: Dean M DeLongchamp, Regis J Kline, Youngsuk Jung, Eric K Lin, Daniel A Fischer, David J Gundlach, Andrew Moad, Lee J Richter, Michael F. Toney, Martin Heeney, Iain McCulloch
Abstract: The carrier mobility of poly(2,5-bis(3-alkylthiophen-2-yl) thieno[3,2-b]thiophene) semiconductors can be substantially enhanced after heating through a thermotropic mesophase transition, which causes a significant improvement in thin film structural ...

484. The potential of atomistic simulations and the knowledgebase of interatomic models (KIM)
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/1/2011
Authors: E Tadmor, R Elliott, James P. Sethna, R Miller, Chandler A Becker
Abstract: N/A (invited opinion)

485. The value of shade: Estimating the effect of urban trees on summertime electricity use
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 6/1/2009
Authors: Geoffrey Donovan, David T Butry
Abstract: We estimated the effect of shade trees on the summertime electricity use of 640 single-family homes in Sacramento, California. Results show that trees on the west and south sides of a house reduce summertime electricity use, whereas trees on the nort ...

486. Thermodynamic modelling of liquids: CALPHAD approaches and contributions from statistical physics
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 12/20/2013
Authors: Chandler A Becker, J Agren, Marcello Baricco, Qing Chen, Sergei A. Decterov, Ursula R Kattner, John Perepezko, Gernot Pottlacher, Malin Selleby
Abstract: Here we describe current approaches to modelling liquids in CALPHAD. available experimental methods and results, and considerations in the use of molecular simulation and first-principles methods in thermodynamic modelling of liquids. We examin ...

487. Thermogravimetric Analysis with a Heated Quartz Crystal Microbalance
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 8/11/2012
Authors: Ward L Johnson, Elisabeth Mansfield
Abstract: Thermogravimetric analysis with an SC-cut quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) were demonstrated at temperatures in the range from 20 C to 450 C. A measurement system was built around a crystal sensor head that was mounted in a small tube furnace. Cha ...

488. Thermomechanical Detwinning of Superconducting YBa2Cu3O7-x Single Crystals
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/11/1989
Authors: Debra L Kaiser, Frank W Gayle, Robert S. Roth, L Swartzendruber
Abstract: A method for the complete removal of twins from single crystals of superconducting YBa2Cu3O7-x is described. The process depends on ferroelastic behavior found to exist in the phase, and should be generally applicable to the layered perovskite-type p ...

489. Thermoreversible Gels from Mixtures of a High-melting Ionic Liquid and a Polar Polymer for Self-Healing Materials
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/27/2011
Authors: Joonsung (Joonsung) Yoon, Christopher M Stafford
Abstract: We investigate a new kind of PVOH physical gel in which the volatile water is replaced with a non-volatile ionic liquid (IL). High melting IL containing Br- anion was chosen so that the hydrogen-bond accepting Br- can enhance miscibility with PVOH wh ...

490. Thickness effect on the viscoelastic properties of polystyrene thin films as measured by thermal wrinkling
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 12/29/2010
Authors: Edwin P Chan, Santanu S. Kundu, Qinhuang Lin, Christopher M Stafford
Abstract: The viscoelastic properties of polymer thin films can have a significant impact on the performance in many small-scale devices. In this work, we use thermal wrinkling, which is a phenomenon based on a thermally-initiated instability, to measure visco ...
