To increase the neutron detection efficiency of Bulk-Micromegas (MICRO-MEsh GAseous Structure) neutron detectors, researchers from Lanzhou University (China), IRFU-CEA (France), and the University of Tennesse-Knoxville (USA) have proposed three novel converters. When validated using Monte Carlo simulations, the design results in a threefold increase in neutron detection efficiencies. This work is described in detail in SCI CHINA: Tech. Sci. 2013, 43(3). The team have now made a...

The bolometer, invented in 1878 by Samuel Pierpont Langley, measures the energy of incident electromagnetic radiation. It consists of an absorptive element connected to a heat sink through a thermal link. The absortive element raises its temperature above that of the heat sink when radiation impinges on it. The higher the energy the higher the temperature rises. Old bolometers used metals while newer ones used semiconductors and superconductors as the absorptive elements. Bolometers can...

A metal detector is a device that finds metal that may not be visible. The basic metal detector is composed of an oscillator producing an alternating current that passes through the coil producing an alternating magnetic field. If electrically conductive metal is close to the coil then the magnetic field is disrupted and thus the metal detector can sense the hidden metal. The first metal detectors were developed in the 1960s and were used for mining and other industries. They were used...

  • A fudgelike confection of brown sugar, cream or milk, and chopped nuts.
'Penuche' is a variant of 'panocha,' a coarse grade of sugar made in Mexico. 'Panocha' probably comes from the Spanish 'panoja, panocha,' ear of grain.
