Optical device helps detect bomb-making chemicals

Optical device helps detect bomb-making chemicals
Scientists searching for traces of drugs, bomb-making components and other chemicals often shine light on the materials they're analysing. This approach is known as spectroscopy, and it involves studying how light interacts with trace amounts of matter. One of the more effective types of spectroscopy is infrared absorption spectroscopy, which scientists use to sleuth out performance-enhancing drugs in blood samples and tiny particles of explosives in the air.

Software supports 3D laser triangulation sensor

Software supports 3D laser triangulation sensor
It has been announced that the EyeVision software now supports the 3D laser triangulation sensor by QuellTech. The laser scanner products are especially made for the capture of 2D height profiles of objects or also for the capture of 3D point clouds, when the sensor is moved over the object. The EyeVision 3D software is offered in two versions. Firstly, the EyeVision 3D Profile for the evaluation and measurement of 2D height profiles and for the applications such as weld seam inspection, gap inspection, profile measurement, thickness inspection and fill height inspection.

Dimming receptacle complies with IEC 61984 Class II

Dimming receptacle complies with IEC 61984 Class II
Global connectivity and sensors provider, TE Connectivity (TE), has introduced the LUMAWISE dimming receptacle with double insulation. This feature allows the dimming receptacle to conform to the safety requirements of IEC 61984, Class II. TE’s ANSI C136.41 compliant LUMAWISE dimming receptacle with double insulation provides a fully pluggable, electrical and mechanical interconnection between an ANSI C136.41-2013 photo control cell and luminaire.

Nanoscale photodetector increases performance without adding bulk

Nanoscale photodetector increases performance without adding bulk
A team of engineers from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and the University at Buffalo have developed a nanoscale photodetector that combines a unique fabrication method and light-trapping structures. The researchers — electrical engineering professors Zhenqiang (Jack) Ma and Zongfu Yu at UW–Madison and Qiaoqiang Gan at UB — described their device, a single-crystalline germanium nano-membrane photodetector on a nano-cavity substrate, in the journal Science Advances.

Sensor enables medical CT scanners to render sharper images

Sensor enables medical CT scanners to render sharper images
Worldwide supplier of high performance sensor solutions, ams, has released the AS5900, a current-to-digital converter for use in Computed Tomography (CT) scanners which offers ultra-low noise, very high resolution and linearity. The analogue performance of the AS5900 will enable new CT scanners to produce sharper, more detailed images. Medical CT scanners equipped with the AS5900 will feature an improved X-ray detector module, and will help physicians to produce more accurate diagnoses while subjecting patients to lower doses of radiation.

Ensuring efficiency in rotary encoders when generating signals

Ensuring efficiency in rotary encoders when generating signals
A new BlueBeam technology has been developed for incremental rotary encoders with optical sensing principle increases efficiency when generating signals. Specially developed blue emitter LEDs, combined with modern and more finely structured sensing chips, allow a more energetic penetration depth of the blue light in the chip. The result is a higher resolution, significantly improved signal amplitude, and a considerably improved signal quality.
