41. 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 ...

42. Artificial Intelligence Tools for Failure Event Data Management and Probability Risk Analysis for Failure Prevention
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 10/25/2009
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, Pedro Vincente Marcal
Abstract: Over the last thirty years, much research has been done on the development of failure event databases and fatigue modeling of crack growth in pressure vessels and piping. According to a USNRC report (NUREG/CR6674, 2000), results of a fatigue crack g ...

43. Assessing and Improving Bonding in Wet Conditions
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 4/3/2010
Authors: Kar Tean Tan, Christopher C White, Donald Lee Hunston, Vogt D Bryan, Anthony Haag
Abstract: Water is ubiquitous in any uncontrolled setting and affects world wide commerce by instigating device and structural failures. This can be a result of corrosion, electrical shorting, or adhesive failure. For adhesive failure, the environmental attack ...

44. Assessment of Factors Affecting Fire Performance of Mattresses: A Review
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1740
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 3/20/2012
Authors: Shonali Nazare, Rick D Davis
Abstract: An in-depth analysis of U.S. residential fire statistics shows that although the total number of fires and deaths due to mattress fires has dropped as a result of several regulatory approaches, the number of deaths per 1000 mattress/bedding fires ...

45. Atomistic comparison of volume-dependent melt properties from four models of aluminum
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 9/8/2010
Author: Chandler A Becker
Abstract: With the increasing use of simulations in materials research and design, it is important to quantify differences between, and accuracy of, models used in these simulations. Here we present the results of such a comparison for four embedded-atom mode ...

46. Atomistic simulations for engineering: Potentials and challenges
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/1/2011
Author: Chandler A Becker
Abstract: Atomistic simulations, both electronic structure and non-quantum-mechanical methods such as molecular dynamics, are gaining in popularity and utility to treat a wide range of nanoscale phenomena and materials. These areas include catalysis, precipita ...

47. Authentication and Dating of Biomass Components of Industrial Materials; Links to Sustainable Technology
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 10/1/2000
Authors: Lloyd A. Currie, D Klinedinst, R Burch, N Feltham, R Dorsch
Abstract: There are twin pressures mounting in U.S. industry for increased utilization of biomass feedstocks and biotechnology in production. The more demanding pressure relates to economic sustainability, that is, because of increased competition globally, b ...

49. Band Alignment of Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Structure by Internal Photoemission Spectroscopy and Spectroscopic Ellipsometry
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 12/10/2010
Authors: Nhan V Nguyen, Oleg A Kirillov, John S Suehle
Abstract: In this paper, we will provide an overview of the internal photoemission (IPE) and the significance of this technique when combined with spectroscopic ellipsometry (SE) to investigate the interfacial electronic properties of heterostructures. In ...

50. 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 ...
