Synthesis, Structure, Te Alloying, and Physical Properties of CuSbS2

October 30, 2022
Dean Hobbis, Kaya Wei, Hsin Wang, Joshua B. Martin, George S. Nolas
Materials with very low thermal conductivities continue to be of interest for a variety of applications. We synthesized CuSbS2 employing a mechanical alloying technique in order to investigate its physical properties. The trigonal pyramid arrangement of

Circular Economy in a High-Tech World

October 18, 2022
Kelsea Schumacher, Martin L. Green
The proliferation of electronics, batteries, and solar panels in recent decades has resulted in a substantial generation of end-of-life (EoL) "high-tech" products. Currently, these products follow a largely linear – extract, make, use, dispose – model, but

Snappy: A New Automated Testing Machine for Monitoring the Break Evolution Process during Single Fiber Fragmentation Test

October 14, 2022
Ami Ahure Powell, Richard Sheridan, Berkay Yucel, Sezen Yucel, Evan Rust, Jeremiah Woodcock, Jeffrey Gilman, Surya R. Kalidindi, Gale A. Holmes
A measurement of interfacial shear strength (IFSS) in fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) materials remains elusive after more than fifty years. This is due in part to the many sources of uncertainty, the time-consuming nature of the measurements, and the large

Density changes in amorphous silicon induced by swift heavy ions

October 4, 2022
Sjoerd Roorda, Amelie Lacroix, Stephanie Codsi, Gabrielle Long, Fan Zhang, Steven Weigand, Christina Trautmann
Pure and gold-doped amorphous silicon membranes were irradiated with swift heavy ions (75 MeV Ag or 1.1 GeV Au ions) and studied by small angle X-ray scattering. The samples that were irradiated with 1.1 GeV Au ions produced a scattering pattern consistent

Towards the Physical Reliability of 3D-Integrated Systems: Broadband Dielectric Spectroscopic (BDS) Studies of Material Evolution and Reliability in Integrated Systems

September 30, 2022
Papa Amoah, Joseph J. Kopanski, Yaw S. Obeng, Christopher Sunday, Chukwudi Okoro, Lin You, Dmirty Veksler
In this paper, we present an overview of our current research focus in developing non-destructive metrology for monitoring reliability issues in 3D-integrated electronic systems. We introduce a suite of non-destructive metrologies that can serve as early

High-Throughput Nanopore Fabrication and Classification Using Xe-Ion Irradiation and Automated Pore-Edge Analysis

September 26, 2022
Michal Macha, Sanjin Marion, Mukesh Tripathi, Martina Lihter, Alex Smolyanitsky, Andras Kis, Aleksandra Radenovic
Large-area nanopore drilling is a major bottleneck in state-of-the-art nanoporous 2D membrane fabrication protocols. In addition, high-quality structural and statistical descriptions of as-fabricated porous membranes are key to predicting the corresponding

Liquid-Phase Speed of Sound and Vapor-Phase Density of Difluoromethane

September 23, 2022
Aaron Rowane, Elizabeth Rasmussen, Mark O. McLinden
Difluoromethane (HFC-32, DFM), with a global warming potential (GWP) of 677, is of interest as a pure refrigerant and as a component in low-GWP refrigerant mixtures. Additionally, difluoromethane has recently been identified as a safe, liquefied-gas

Reproducible Sorbent Materials Foundry for Carbon Capture at Scale

September 22, 2022
Austin McDannald, Howie Joress, Brian DeCost, Avery Baumann, A. Gilad Kusne, Kamal Choudhary, Taner N. Yildirim, Daniel Siderius, Winnie Wong-Ng, Andrew J. Allen, Christopher Stafford, Diana Ortiz-Montalvo
We envision an autonomous sorbent materials foundry (SMF) for rapidly evaluating materials for direct air capture of carbon dioxide ( CO2), specifically targeting novel metal organic framework materials. Our proposed SMF is hierarchical, simultaneously

Degradation of CVD-Grown MoS2 Subjected to DC Electrical Stress

September 16, 2022
Elisabeth Mansfield, David Goggin, Jason Killgore, Taylor Aubry
Devices containing transition metal dichalcogenides are being investigated for next generation electronics. Understanding material properties under typical use conditions is important for longevity and effectiveness of these devices. In this study, CVD

Structure Separation Experiments: Shed Burns without Wind

September 15, 2022
Alexander Maranghides, Shonali Nazare, Eric Link, Matthew Bundy, Matthew Hoehler, Steven Hawks, Frank Bigelow, William (Ruddy) Mell, Anthony Bova, Derek McNamara, Tom Milac, Faraz Hedayati, Daniel Gorham, Xareni Monroy, Murray Morrison, Bob Raymer, Frank Frievalt, William Walton
This report describes the experiments conducted during the first phase of a multi-phase project designed to assess structure-to-structure fire spread for structures in the Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI). The experiments focused on quantifying thermal

Effect of network connectivity on behavior of synthetic Broborg Hillfort glasses

September 2, 2022
Jose Marcial, Maria Cicconi, Carolyn Pearce, Jaroslav Klouzek, James Neeway, Richard Pokorny, Miroslava Vernerova, John McCloy, Emily Nienhuis, Rolf Sjoblom, Jamie Weaver, Russell Hand, Pavel Hrma, Albert Kruger
There is wide industrial interest in developing robust models of long-term (>100years) glass durability. Archeological glass analogs, glasses of similar composition, and alteration conditions to those being tested for durability can be used to evaluate and

Why big data and compute are not necessarily the path to big materials science

August 30, 2022
Naohiro Fujinuma, Brian DeCost, Jason Hattrick-Simpers, Sam Lofland
Applied machine learning has rapidly spread throughout the physical sciences. In fact, machine learning-based data analysis and experimental decision-making have become commonplace. Here, we reflect on the ongoing shift in the conversation from proving

Effects of local processing parameters on microstructure, texture, and mechanical properties of electron beam powder bed fusion manufactured Ti-6Al-4V

August 27, 2022
Edwin Schwalbach, Jake Benzing, Vikas Sinha, Todd Butler, Adam Pilchak, Kevin Chaput, Norman Schehl, Reji John, Nik Hrabe
Electron beam powder bed fusion scan strategies for parts or part groupings of various sizes and scan line lengths have been found to inadvertently lead to significant variations in crystallographic texture and mechanical properties for Ti–6Al–4V. This
