Optical nanosensor uses torque for signal processing

Optical nanosensor uses torque for signal processing
The world of nanosensors may be physically small, but the demand is large and growing, with little sign of slowing. As electronic devices get smaller, their ability to provide precise, chip-based sensing of dynamic physical properties such as motion become challenging to develop. An international group of researchers have put a literal twist on this challenge, demonstrating a new nanoscale optomechanical resonator that can detect torsional motion at near state-of-the-art sensitivity.

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.
