Weather Balloon Helps Measure Earth's Reflectivity
2013-11-01 04:20:18

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The amount of sunlight reflecting off of Earth’s atmosphere is a key measurement for better understanding climate change, and weather balloons could help advance data collection techniques even more. NASA’s Earth Science Technology Office is supporting the development of the HyperSpectral Imager for Climate Science (HySICS). This instrument made its inaugural engineering balloon flight at the end of September, providing realistic,...

2013-10-30 10:39:08

Vienna University of Technology Whether it is diagnostic imaging, analysis of unknown substances or ultrafast communication – terahertz radiation sources are becoming more and more important. At the Vienna University of Technology, an important breakthrough has been achieved. Terahertz waves are invisible, but incredibly useful; they can penetrate many materials which are opaque to visible light and they are perfect for detecting a variety of molecules. Terahertz radiation can be...

Shifts to Atlantium Hydro-Optic™ UV for Virus Disinfection, Less Carcinogenic By-Products California (PRWEB) October 29, 2013 Atlantium Technologies Ltd., leader in UV water treatment for municipal and other large-scale applications, announced today that the Town of Hillsborough, New Hampshire, has chosen their innovative Hydro-Optic™ ultraviolet (UV) water disinfection system to disinfect for viruses instead of just using conventional chlorine - a historic first for a major...

Seeing In The Dark With Novel Infrared Remote Sensing System
2013-10-29 14:33:32

American Institute of Physics Thermal infrared (IR) energy is emitted from all things that have a temperature greater than absolute zero. Human eyes, primarily sensitive to shorter wavelength visible light, are unable to detect or differentiate between the longer-wavelength thermal IR "signatures" given off both by living beings and inanimate objects. While mechanical detection of IR radiation has been possible since Samuel Pierpont Langley invented the bolometer in 1880, devices that also...

Destroys drug-resistant bacteria but safe for human exposure Despite major efforts to keep operating rooms sterile, surgical wound infections remain a serious and stubborn problem, killing up to 8,200 patients a year in the U.S. A study by Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) researchers suggests that narrow-spectrum ultraviolet (UV) light could dramatically reduce such infections without damaging human tissue. The study, conducted in tissue culture, was published today in the journal...

The time is now as UV LED installations increase 700%. Hillsboro, OR (PRWEB) October 10, 2013 The recently completed Labelexpo Europe 2013 showed the rapid adoption of UV LED curing. The show reported its largest ever edition with record-breaking attendance figures by attracting 31,795 visitors (up 11% over 2011) from 158 countries (up from 123 in 2011) and just under 600 exhibitors (up from 550 in 2011). Everywhere they looked, attendees saw UV LED curing systems being implemented on...

Electromagnetic Spectrum -- The electromagnetic spectrum describes the various types of electromagnetic radiation based on their wavelengths. Radio, representing wavelengths from a few feet to well over a mile, is at one end of the spectrum. Gamma ray radiation is at the other end: the wavelength of the harder types is so short, in the subatomic range, that we do not have instruments capable of directly measuring it. While the above classification scheme is generally accurate, in...

Electromagnetic Radiation -- Electromagnetic radiation is a combination of oscillating electric and magnetic fields propagating through space and carrying energy from one place to another. Light is a form of electromagnetic radiation. The theoretical study of electromagnetic radiation is called electrodynamics, a subfield of electromagnetism. When any wire (or other conducting object such as an antenna) conducts alternating current, electromagnetic radiation is propagated at the same...
