    The objective of this project is to synthesize novel boron-rich carbon in the form of nanotubes and nanofibers and to determine the influence of high concentrations of boron on the sp2 carbon structure. Research efforts ...
  • Walker, Juergen (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2007-06)
    In this study the influence of forming conditions, namely draw temperature and draw speed, on thermal properties of glass fibers of the composition 0.25 Bi2O3 – 0.75 B2O3 were examined using mainly DSC measurements ...
  • Kim, Ungsoo (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2002-09)
    The proper use of multiple polymeric additives in ceramic processing is discussed. First, the use of a polyelectrolyte as a dispersant is studied by looking at the adsorption of various molecular weight PAAs on clay and ...
  • Wu, Zhehua (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2002-07)
    BaMgAl10O17 (BAM) has been widely used as the host material for Eu-active phosphors for lamps and display panels. It has a luminescent wavelength ranging from 430nm to 450nm, blue in color. However, there is a degradation ...
  • Hall, Matthew (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2003-05)
    The adsorption of human serum albumin (HSA) to sodium silicate, soda lime silicate (SLS), and sodium aluminosilicate (SAS) glass microspheres was investigated using sodiumdodecylsulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis ...
  • Haluska, Michael (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2003-09)
    The three layer Aurivillius crystal structure was investigated for use as an ionic conductor. Sample synthesis was investigated using high temperature x-ray diffraction (HTXRD) for a range of compounds, using solid state ...
  • Samadhi, Tjokorde (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2003-05)
    Sodium sulfate (Na2SO4) is commonly used in soda-lime-silicate glass manufacturing as a fining agent. The decomposition of Na2SO4 in glass tanks is an environmental linked to SOx and particulate matter emissions. This ...
  • Feng, Qiquan (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2004-12)
    Two types of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs), Y5V with Ni electrodes and X7R with Ag electrodes, were mainly characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) using tripod polishing specimens and ion milled ...
  • Korwin-Edson, Michelle (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2004-05)
    The motivation behind this work stems from Jedlicka’s work on Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells and her observation that these cells proliferated differently depending on the glass chemistry on which the cells were ...
  • Schulz, Brett (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2004-09)
    Dry pressing has been shown to be an efficient and cost effective method of manufacturing ceramic ware. Dry pressed parts are typically manufactured with a low moisture content which has the further advantage of eliminating ...
  • Srilomsak, Sutham (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2004-09)
    Lead Zirconate Titanate (PZT) is an important piezoelectric ceramic. Although processed to yield excellent piezoelectric properties, PZT suffers from a long term aging process in which the piezoelectric properties decrease ...
  • Stohr, Darren (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2004-04)
    Atomistic computer simulation techniques were used to model the surfaces of five crystal structures in the hexa-aluminate family. Calcium, strontium, and the theoretical barium hexa-alumunates with the magnetoplumbite ...
  • Wheaton, Bryan (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2004-12)
    The motivation behind this work stems from a combination of my interest in atomic force microscopy (AFM) and the need to apply AFM to several areas of glass research. AFM was used as the main characterization tool in the ...
  • Wilantewicz, Trevor (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2005-11)
