Lake Shore´s patented CVT probe design absorbs probe arm movement caused by thermal expansion and contraction, allowing for continuous data measurement. Westerville, OH (PRWEB) February 25, 2013 Lake Shore announces today a new continuously variable temperature (CVT) probe, developed in collaboration with TOYO Corporation, that allows for true, continuous unattended wafer probing of a material sample across a range of temperatures. The probes, when used in any Lake Shore probe station,...

First Flexible, Flat, Transparent Image Sensor Developed

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Imaging sensors are typically rigid and opaque, but a team of scientists from Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria has developed a new imager based on“¯a flat, flexible, transparent and potentially disposable polymer sheet. "To our knowledge, we are the first to present an image sensor that is fully transparent — no integrated microstructures, such as circuits — and is flexible and scalable at the same...

Berkeley Lab research at AAAS Meeting In the blink of an eye, more attoseconds have expired than the age of Earth measured in — minutes. A lot more. To be precise, an attosecond is one billionth of a billionth of a second. The attosecond timescale is where you must go to study the electron action that is the starting point of all of chemistry. Not surprisingly, chemists are most eager to explore it with X-rays, the region of the electromagnetic spectrum that can probe the core...

Ancient Roman Cup Is Inspiration For The World's Most Sensitive Plasmon Resonance Sensor
2013-02-14 15:58:29

University of Illinois College of Engineering Utilizing optical characteristics first demonstrated by the ancient Romans, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have created a novel, ultra-sensitive tool for chemical, DNA, and protein analysis. "With this device, the nanoplasmonic spectroscopy sensing, for the first time, becomes colorimetric sensing, requiring only naked eyes or ordinary visible color photography," explained Logan Liu, an assistant professor of...

Scientists identified aromatic rice with very low arsenic content and higher concentrations of essential nutrients, selenium and zinc -- published in Biomedical Spectroscopy and Imaging Millions of people worldwide are regularly exposed to arsenic through drinking water and eating rice grown in soil and water containing high amounts of arsenic. Long-term exposure can lead to the development of different types of cancer as well as serious cardiovascular, neurological, and other health...


Word of the Day
monteith
  • A large punch-bowl of the eighteenth century, usually of silver and with a movable rim, and decorated with flutings and a scalloped edge. It was also used for cooling and carrying wine-glasses.
  • A kind of cotton handkerchief having white spots on a colored ground, the spots being produced by a chemical which discharges the color.
This word is possibly named after Monteith (Monteigh), 'an eccentric 17th-century Scotsman who wore a cloak scalloped at the hem.'
