  • The Construction and Application of a Novel Glove-Box Deposition System to the Study of Air-Sensitive Materials by Tunneling Spectroscopy 

    Mazur, Ursula; Hipps, K. W. (1984)
    The construction and application of a high-vacuum deposition system housed in a recirculating, catalytically scrubbed, inert-atmosphere glove box is reported. This system is specifically applied to the fabrication of tunnel ...
  • The HOW of a Hydrogen Organized Washington — Technical version 

    Leachman, Jacob (MME Symposium Series, 9/17/2015)
    This presentation provides the technical details for how hydrogen could be created, stored, and used as part of the energy economy in Washington state and beyond.
  • The HOW of a Hydrogen Organized Washington — Business version 

    Leachman, Jacob (Avista Technical Seminar Series, 9/11/2015)
    This presentation makes a business case for making, storing, and using hydrogen as an alternative to fossil fuels. It presents research on storage and use of liquid hydrogen at Washington State University.
  • The Use of Scanning Conduction Microscopy to Probe Abrasion of Insulating Films 

    Dickinson, J.T.; Jensen, L.C.; Siek, K.H.; Hipps, K. W. (1995)
    The scanning force microscope (SFM) is a useful tool for examining the consequences of tribological wear, particularly on inherently flat surfaces such as single crystals. How- ever, on moderately rough surfaces, changes ...
  • Thermodynamic properties status of deuterium and tritium 

    Leachman, Jacob; Richardson, Ian Andrew (Proceedings of the Cryogenic Engineering Conference–CEC: Advances in Cryogenic Engineering, 2012)
    Deuterium and tritium are seeing increased use in cryogenics as a fuel for nuclear fusion energy machines. The current Equation of State (EOS) for deuterium is based on work completed before the mid 1980's and tritium does ...
  • Thermophysical property modeling of a hydrogenic pellet production system 

    Leachman, Jacob; Pfotenhauer, J. M.; Nellis, G. F. (Transactions of the Cryogenic Engineering Conference–CEC: Advances in Cryogenic Engineering, 2010)
    Solid hydrogenic pellets are used as fuel for fusion energy machines like the ITER device. This paper discusses the numerical modeling of a Pellet Production System (PPS) that is used to generate these pellets. The PPS ...
  • Tung oil-based thermosetting polymers for self-healing applications 

    Hondred, Peter R.; Salat, Leo; Mangler, Josh; Kessler, Michael (Journal of Applied Polymer Science, 2014)
    Several bio-renewable thermosetting polymers were successfully prepared from tung oil through cationic polymerization for the use as the healing agent in self-healing microencapsulated applications. The tung oil triglyceride ...
  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Research at WSU 

    Leachman, Jacob (2014)
    This presentation describes efforts at Washington State University to design and test liquid hydrogen-fueled unmanned aerial vehicles. It was presented to the Washington Congressional Staff on August 7, 2014, and the Spokane ...
  • Vacuum Infusion Processing of Self-Healing Composites with Reinforcement Bound Microcapsules 

    Grewell, David; Fuchs, David; Schemme, Michael; Rajan, Krishna; Kessler, Michael; Karlinger, Peter (Journal of Plastics Technology, 2011)
    The objective of this work is to investigate a vacuum assisted liquid composite molding process which results in a uniform distribution of liquid filled microcapsules in glass fiber/epoxy composites. These microcapsules ...
