MKS Instruments, Inc., a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, has announced the L50(150)A-LP2-35, the newest addition to the Ophir® line of LP2 laser power/energy sensors with high damage threshold.
Currently, researchers at MIT have discovered a novel way to transform temperature fluctuations into electrical power.
The University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering will receive $1.275 million from the United States Department of Energy (DOE) for collaborative research that includes the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Reactor Laboratory, the National Energy Technology Laboratory, and Westinghouse Electric Corporation.
Hydrogen has the potential of becoming one of the replacements for fossil fuels as an energy carrier in the not-so-distant future. It is clean, as heat and water vapor are the only by-products of combustion. Plenty of it can be produced using just water and another energy source (for instance solar energy).
A steady increase has been observed in the share of wind energy in the electricity mix, and this increase is accompanied by a growing demand for high-quality and efficient wind turbines with the “Made in Germany” seal.
Engineers from the University of Bristol have developed a low-cost chip that allows batteries in sensors to last longer.
Pressure transducers offer accurate pressure monitoring for HVAC, refrigeration, air compressor, pump and valve systems.
Spanish scientists are concentrating on revolutionizing the smart meters’ market using wireless sensors that have software and hardware integrated within it.
A Washington State University research team has designed a tiny, wireless data center that someday could be as small as a hand-held device and dramatically reduce the energy needed to run such centers.
A team of researchers from North Carolina State University have created a new design to harvest the heat generated by the body, and change it into electricity to be used in wearable electronics.
