WATERTOWN, Mass., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- "Temporal artery thermometry is an effective screening tool in identifying fever in children one to four years of age," according to a recent study published in the journal Clinical Pediatrics. The study investigated the sensitivity and specificity of scanning the forehead area to detect temporal artery temperature, as a substitute for rectal temperatures in children 1-4 years old. "This independent research validates our findings about the...

Aerospace, automotive and airplane construction count on lightweight construction. But to make sure that lightening the load does not come at the cost of safety, Fraunhofer researchers are working on new quality assurance systems for material testing. At the Composites Europe trade show (October 27 "“ 29) Hall 4, Booth D04, in Stuttgart, they will demonstrate a new kind of non-destructive diagnostic procedure. Boats, airplanes and spacecrafts are getting lighter and lighter: Lightweight...

Since a failed terrorist attack in 2006, plane passengers have not been able to carry bottles of liquid through security at airports, leaving some parched at the airport and others having expensive toiletries confiscated, but work by a group of physicists in Germany is paving the way to eliminate this necessary nuisance. Research published today, Tuesday, 20 October, in IOP Publishing's Superconductor Science and Technology explains how a new form of spectroscopy, a scientific method that...

Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have conducted a basic chemistry experiment in what is perhaps the world's smallest test tube, measuring a thousandth the diameter of a human hair. The nano-scale test tube is so small that a high-power electron microscope was required to see the experiment. Made from a thin shell of carbon, the test tube was stuffed with a thread-like crystal (a nanowire) of germanium with a tiny particle of gold at its tip. The researchers heated the test...

If you wanted to know if your child had a fever or be certain that the roast in the oven was thoroughly cooked, you would, of course, use a thermometer that you trusted to give accurate readings at any temperature within its range. However, it isn't that simple for researchers who need to measure temperatures in microfluidic systems"”tiny, channel-lined devices used in medical diagnostics, DNA forensics and "lab-on-a-chip" chemical analyzers"”as their current "thermometer" can...

Infrared Thermography is a technique that can be employed in the plastic industry for process optimization and quality improvement, as well as in the development of new tools. In the thermoplastic injection process, a large amount of information about the transformation process can be collected by taking thermographic images of the recently injected pieces that are still in the mould or that have just been extracted.Infrared RadiationInfrared rays were discovered in 1800 by Frederick William...
