Roles of Adhesive and Interfacial Properties on Humidity-induced Failure

February 21, 2010
Author(s)
Kar T. Tan, Christopher C. White, Donald L. Hunston, Kristen L. Steffens, Hatlee Timothy, Kristen Hamilton, Vogt D. Bryan
Adhesion loss due to moisture is a fundamental problem in a large diversity of industries ranging from microelectronics and automotive to aerospace. This study investigates the durability of model adhesive joints consisting of a homologous series of poly(n

Melting and Spread of Polymers in Fire with the Particle Finite Element Method

February 19, 2010
Author(s)
Eugenio Onate, Riccardo Rossi, Sergio R. Idelsohn, Kathryn M. Butler
A new computational procedure for analysis of the melting and flame spread of polymers under fire conditions is presented. The method, termed Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM), combines concepts from particle-based techniques with those of the standard

Precision Engineering Division 2009 Program Technical Accomplishments

February 19, 2010
Author(s)
Michael T. Postek
The Precision Engineering Division (PED) is one of five divisions of the Manufacturing Engineering Laboratory (MEL)at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). PED provides the United States with the foundation for dimensional measurements

Coexisting Magnetic Order and Cooperative Paramagnetism in the Stuffed Pyrochlore Tb 2+x Ti 2-2x Nb x O 7

February 18, 2010
Author(s)
Benjamin Ueland, Jason S. Gardner, A. J. Williams, M. L. Dahlberg, J.G. Kim, Yiming Qiu, John R. Copley, P. Schiffer, R J. Cava
Neutron scattering and magnetization measurements have been performed on the stuffed pyrochlore system Tb2+xTi2-2xNbxO7. We find that despite the introduction of chemical disorder and increasingly antiferromagnetic interactions, cooperative paramagnetic

Development Overview of Sustainable Manufacturing Metrics

February 18, 2010
Author(s)
Shaw C. Feng, Che B. Joung
The manufacturing industry is facing the challenge of measuring sustainability performance in a product s life cycle. Developing metrics for sustainable manufacturing is critical to enable manufacturing companies to quantitatively measure the

Fluorinated Copolymer Nanoparticles for Multimodal Imaging Applications

February 18, 2010
Author(s)
Mark M. Bailey, Christine M. Mahoney, Elodie Dempah, Jeffrey M. Davis, Matthew Becker, Supang Khondee, Eric J. Munson, Cory J. Berkland
Nanomaterials have emerged as valuable tools in biomedical imaging techniques, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), fluorescence, positron emission tomography (PET), and others. Some have been designed to serve as multimodal imaging agents, combining

NETWORK-CENTRIC PRODUCT REALIZATION AND THE ROLE OF STANDARDS

February 18, 2010
Author(s)
Ram D. Sriram, Albert W. Jones, Mahesh Mani, Sudarsan Rachuri, Eswaran Subrahmanian
The early part of this millennium has witnessed the emergence of an Internet-based engineering marketplace. Here, engineers, designers, and manufacturers from small and large companies can collaborate electronically in various product development and

Performance Measures Framework for Unmanned Systems (PerMFUS): Initial Perspective

February 18, 2010
Author(s)
Hui-Min Huang, Elena R. Messina, Adam S. Jacoff
The performance of intelligent unmanned systems (UMS) must be able to be measured to ensure that they can meet the operational requirements. A generic framework to enable capturing and organizing the performance metrics are highly desirable. In this

Frequency Comparison of Two High-Accuracy Al+ Optical Clocks

February 17, 2010
Author(s)
Chin-Wen Chou, David Hume, J.C. Koelemeij, David J. Wineland, Till P. Rosenband
We have constructed an optical clock with a fractional frequency inaccuracy of 8.6e-18, based on quantum logic spectroscopy of an Al+ ion. A simultaneously trapped Mg+ ion serves to sympathetically laser-cool the Al+ ion and detect its quantum state. The

Proceedings of the 2009 Workshop on Innovative Fire Protection

Author(s)
Anthony P. Hamins, Francine K. Amon, Jason D. Averill, Nelson P. Bryner, David T. Butry, Rick D. Davis, Richard G. Gann, Jeffrey W. Gilman, Samuel L. Manzello, Randall J. McDermott, William E. Mell, Nathan D. Marsh
The Innovative Fire Protection Workshop was held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on June 4 and 5, 2009. The 70 participants represented a broad range of stakeholder perspectives, including various non-profit, academic, industry

Quantifying How Lighting and Focus Affect Face Recognition Performance

February 16, 2010
Author(s)
P J. Phillips, J. R. Beveridge, Bruce A. Draper, David Bolme, Geof H. Givens, Yui M. Lui
Recent studies show that face recognition in uncontrolled images remains a challenging problem, although the reasons why are less clear. Changes in illumination are one possible explanation, although algorithms developed since the advent of the PIE and

Heralded, pure-state single-photon source based on a Potassium Titanyl Phosphate waveguide

February 15, 2010
Author(s)
Zachary H. Levine, Jingyun Fan, Jun Chen, Alexander E. Ling, Alan L. Migdall
WWe analyze the generation of single spatial mode, spectrally uncorrelated photon pairs via type II spontaneous parametric downconversion in a Potassium Titanyl Phosphate (KTP) waveguide using real experimental parameters. We show that this source can be

Steady-state and transient photoconductivity in c-axis GaN nanowires grown by nitrogen-plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy

February 12, 2010
