2013-03-27 14:43:06

WATCH VIDEO: [NASA | MAVEN Magnetometer] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online NASA's MAVEN spacecraft is scheduled for launch later this year, and with it will launch an instrument designed to study Mars' magnetic field. The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission will be carrying a sensitive magnetic-field instrument that will help investigate what remains of Mars' magnetic "shield." This Maven magnetometer will be playing a key role in studying...

This is a reverse costing report of the new 6-Axis electronic compass supplied by STMicroelectronics. (PRWEB) February 28, 2013 System Plus Consulting is proud to publish the reverse costing report of the new 6-Axis electronic compass supplied by STMicroelectronics. The LSM303D is a system-in-package featuring a 3-axis magnetometer and a 3-axis accelerometer. With a 3x3x1mm package size, it belongs to the smallest eCompasses for consumer applications. The 3-axis accelerometer uses the TSV...

Inexpensive Magnetic Field Sensor From 'Plastic Paint'

Spintronic device uses thin-film organic semiconductor University of Utah physicists developed an inexpensive, highly accurate magnetic field sensor for scientific and possibly consumer uses based on a "spintronic" organic thin-film semiconductor that basically is "plastic paint." The new kind of magnetic-resonance magnetometer also resists heat and degradation, works at room temperature and never needs to be calibrated, physicists Christoph Boehme, Will Baker and colleagues report...

Successful test at PTB of optical magnetometer with potential applications in brain imaging for neurological diagnostics and in basic research. In future a new magnetic sensor the size of a sugar cube might simplify the measurement of brain activity. In the magnetically shielded room of Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) the sensor has passed an important technical test: Spontaneous as well as stimulated magnetic fields of the brain were detected. This demonstrates the potential...

The ambitious goals set by the German government to promote energy efficiency have put pressure on companies to change their energy-use policies. But the sustainable management of energy resources and the associated energy-saving measures can only be implemented if users have a reliable means of quantifying their power consumption. A novel sensor enables them to do just that, and thereby comply with the new government regulations. The new metering device will be presented at the Sensor+Test...

Image 1 - Watching Space Weather Through The MAGIC Of CubeSat CINEMA
2012-03-27 04:29:04

A trio of CubeSats that will study the effects of space weather on the Earth´s radiation belts and magnetic field are being prepared for launch. TRIO-CINEMA is a collaboration between UC Berkeley, Kyung Hee University and Imperial College London. The first CINEMA CubeSat passed acceptance testing in January 2012 and will launch in mid-2012. Two more identical spacecraft will launch towards the end of the year. The mission will be presented by Professor Tim Horbury at the National...

Cesium (or Caesium) is a chemical element with the symbol Cs and atomic number 55. Caesium is a soft alkali metal that is silvery-gold. It melts and liquefies at 83 degrees Fahrenheit and is one of only five metals that are liquid close to room temperature. Caesium is a metal that is most widely known for its use in atomic clocks. Cesium comes from the Latin word caesius meaning "˜bluish-gray'. It was discovered in 1860 by Robert Bunsen and Gustav Kirchhoff in Durkheim, Germany in mineral...

Word of the Day
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
