  • Conklin, Morgan D. (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, 2004)
    Thermal and physical properties of glass-coated amorphous metal fibers have been investigated. It is demonstrated that an amorphous metal having a composition of Fe_{77.5}Si_{7.5}B_{15} undergoes a two-stage crystallization ...
  • Spinelli, Ian M. (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2004)
    The polymearse chain reaction (PCR) has become one of the most powerful techniques in biology. The aim of this sutdy was to take the first step towards the development of an in situ PCR device with porous glass-coated ...
  • Xiong, Liping (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, 2004)
    The objective of this work was to investigate the glaze surface tension effect on bubble evolution during firing, and the relationship between glaze surface tension, melt viscosity and bubble evolution. A sessile drop ...
  • Harvey, Steven P. (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2004)
    The polymerized complex method was utilized to synthesize n=3 Aurivillius compounds based on the parent phase Bi_{2}Sr_{2}Nb_{2}TiO_{12}. Results show that this is a viable option to replace solid-state synthesis of these ...
  • Cadavid, Andres (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, 2004)
    Green and fired properties of three electrical porcelain bodies were compared. The three bodies were not significantly different, except for their plasticity. One of the bodies required a higher water content to develop ...
  • Rangarajan, Badri (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, 2004)
    Elastic/plastic behavior of chalcogenide glasses in the Ge-Se and Ge-Sb-Se systems was studied using different spherical indenters: 400μm and 2mm. Static room temperature indentations were carried out to determine the ...
  • Gnann, Karl A (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, 2004)
    The adsorption characteristics of four common oxide powders with a proprietary polyacrylate-type surfactant have been determined. Zeta potential measurements were used to characterize the charge on the oxide particles in ...
  • Jaromin, Andrea (Alfred University. Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, 2004)
    Beta-gallia rutile intergrowths are crystal structures consisting of a β-gallia component and a rutile-structured oxide component in the stoichiometry Ga_{4}Mn_{n-4}O_{2n-2} where M is Ge, Sn or Ti, and n ≥ 5. This structure ...
  • Geleil, Aladdin (Alfred University. Faculty of Glass Science. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, 2004)
    Alkali-borosilicate glasses doped with transition metals were studied to test their suitability as phosphor materials. The goal of this work is to employ a low-processing temperature glass system doped with photoluminescent ...
  • Bowman, David Keith (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, 2004)
    Barium titanate thin films were deposited onto silica-clad silicon using a sol-gel spin coating process. Such films could have valuable applications as electro-optic waveguide components and devices. A large polymer, ...
  • Doud, Brian (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, 2004)
    Mechanical properties of glass-coated metal fiber with different metal compositions (Co_{68.15}Fe_{4.35}Si_{12.5}B_{15}, Co_{68.15-x}Fe_{4.35}Ni_{x}Si_{12.5}B_{15}, and Fe_{77.5}Si_{7.5}B_{15}), diameters and glass thicknesses ...
  • Mejia, Juan Felipe (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, 2004)
    The Unity Molecular Formula (UMF) approach was used to formulate both transparent and opacified bright Cone 9 single-fired base glazes. This research addresses the effects of chemical composition on visual appearance and ...
  • Walsh, Conor James (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, 2004)
    This study focuses on a lead free, high temperature ceramic capacitor material having the base composition of (Bi0.5 Na0.5) TiO3. The goal is to modify this base composition to create a material that has X7R-like dielectric ...
  • Norton, Christopher R. (Alfred University. Faculty of Ceramic Engineering. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, 2004)
