    Vocalises are songs that are sung on no words or nonsense syllables, sometimes applied as special effects in a song, used as a vocal exercise or for emotionally or spiritually focused music. Through vocables, dynamics, ...
  • Robinson, Michael (Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering at Alfred University., 2012-09)
    The Solar Decathlon has been created by the U.S. Department of Energy to test the design, build, and operation of an energy efficient house. The newest addition to the international solar decathlon competition has been ...
  • Li, Yiming (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2014-09)
    This project was to investigate the structure, solubility and bioactivity of Na/Sr Bioactive glasses. There are three sections to this study. The first section is the effect of Na+ and Sr2+ on the structure and ...
  • Colorado, Victor (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2014-12)
    Fast firing of commercial porcelains continues to be an important aspect of ceramic manufacturing. The ability to predict the firing conditions necessary to densify a given body could be quite valuable as a means to ...
  • Fredell, Anastasia (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2015-04)
    Sodium β”-alumina is used in batteries due to its high ionic conductivity. This work studied the effect of excess sodium on the grain size, sintering behavior, and ionic conductivity of zinc stabilized β”-alumina. Two ...
  • Gruspier, Steven (Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering at Alfred University, 2015-09)
    A device was developed that is specifically designed to acquire data from a solar panel within this short time frame with the use of a microcontroller. The microcontroller was used to make a portable device that could ...
  • Brunet, Colby (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2012-09)
    Polycrystalline ceramics used for infrared transparent windows have a great advantage over their single crystal counterparts. In these materials, grain size plays an important role on the transparency and mechanical ...
  • Chambliss, Kameron (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2014-02)
    This thesis focuses on various mechanical properties affecting the performance of two vendor-supplied glasses currently used for photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) with the specific objective of improving these properties using ...

    It is common to think of fast firing of porcelain tiles as unrelated to the conventional firing cycles typically used in the whitewares industry. In other words, it appears that the densification and mineralogy in fast ...
  • Horning, Joshua (Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering at Alfred University, 2014-09)
    In this thesis a hybrid rocket engine will be designed and built to experimentally test different materials which can be used for fuel. Hybrid rockets contain both a solid propellant such as hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene ...
  • Glass, Katelyn (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2014-11)
    Several compositions of Ni- and Co- containing aluminate spinels have been synthesized in a reproducible manner, each of which are potential catalyst materials for methane reforming in-situ during SOFC operation. Reduction ...
  • Wang, Changcheng (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2014-06)
    The titanium-niobium oxide compositional system shows potential for application in a variety of technologically important material systems. However, this system is not well understood. In this study, a titanium niobium ...
  • Chothirawat, Sureeporn (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2015-06)
    The objective of this thesis was to synthesize ZnO-based transparent oxide (TCO) thin film by using an economically-versatile fabrication technique called electrospray deposition (ESD). A co-doping approach was employed ...
  • Dvorak, Claire (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2015-09)
    Three thermoelectric compositional series, n-type Ga3-xIn5+xSn2O16, p-type Ca3-xSrxCo4O9, and p-type Ca3-yAgyCo4O9 were synthesized using solid state techniques. Comparisons of thermoelectric properties for Ga3-xIn5+xSn2O16 ...

  • Keefe, Kevin (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2015-09)
    When phenolic resin is pyrolized, carbon is left behind. Maximizing the carbon yield from this pyrolysis was the goal. Standard pyrolysis loses a sizeable amount of carbon in the form of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) ...
  • Gong, Yuxuan (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2016-10)
    The aqueous corrosion of glass is of considerable interest given its critical role in industrial applications, biomedical processes, and carbon dioxide sequestration in earth’s crust. Particularly, a thorough understanding ...
  • Pradhan, Dimple (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering., 2012-06)
    Niobium and titanium oxides were prepared via the sol-gel technique. The structural evolution of these oxides with calcination temperature (150-650oC) was investigated using differential thermal analysis (DTA), high ...
