A pressure switch is a mechanical or electronic device that is activated when a certain pressure threshold or set point is reached. These failsafe response components instruct the system to perform an action if a certain pressure threshold is met.
Clinicians can use digital health systems to inform them when a patient needs insulin shots for type 2 diabetes or medication to decrease cholesterol based on their risk of heart disease.
At Imperial College London, a new optical fiber sensor with AI capabilities may test several traumatic brain injury biomarkers at once.
In spite of progress in improved food production, half of all harvested food in the world is lost due to rot caused by microorganisms.
Imperfect current propagation in the heart is at the root of most cardiac diseases. Thanks to a novel magnetocardiography technique developed in the MEXT Q-LEAP Flagship project with researchers from Tokyo Tech and the University of Tokyo, we can now image these currents at millimeter-scale resolutions.
Teledyne Princeton Instruments, part of Teledyne’s Vision Solutions Group, announced today that its COSMOS camera was recognized among the best by the 2022 Laser Focus World Innovators Awards.
The reaction principle of the high-selectivity gas sensing material was successfully identified by a joint research team in Korea.
Lithium can help with the symptoms of both bipolar illness and depression if used at the proper dosage. Amounts that are either too little or too much can have harmful effects.
Other than delivering films, emails, and tweets, fiber-optic cables that run through the earth, along the seafloor, and into the houses have many other possibilities.
Endress+Hauser released new Liquid Analysis disinfection sensors and accessories for measurement in more applications, adding the CCS55D Memosens Free Bromine sensor, CCS58D Memosens Ozone sensor, and Flowfit CYA27 assembly to its product family.
Working with highly-stable materials such as fused quartz and Zerodur, Optical Surfaces is routinely able to produce reference and transmission flats with a surface accuracy of better than lambda/20 p.v. and surface roughness of less than 1 nm.
Optical Surfaces Ltd. has developed a new compact beam expander that uniquely delivers high magnification (x30) from small aperture (2 mm) high power laser beam lines.
Optical Surfaces Ltd. (Kenley, UK) reports how strong demand for high precision optics and optical systems from the astronomy, fundamental physics and defence communities has enabled it to exceed its annual sales target after just 7-months of 2022. This follows a 20% growth in sales achieved in the previous 2 years.
Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory are utilizing sensors, drones, and machine learning to prevent fires and lessen the damage they cause to the electric grid as a result of larger and more frequent wildfires caused by climate change.
With the rise of Internet of Things and Industry 4.0, piezoelectrics, or materials that generate electric charge when a strain is applied to them, are becoming extremely useful as compact and energy-efficient force senso...
