11. Performance Measurements and Analysis of Low Data Rate Wireless Communication Under Interference Sources in Buildings
Topic: Sensors
Published: 10/13/2010
Authors: Wenqi Guo, William M Healy, Mengchu Zhou
Abstract: Interference from collocated networks operating over the same frequency range becomes an increasingly severe problem as the number of networks overlapping geographically increases within commercial and residential buildings. This paper aims to highli ...

12. Using Chemical Vapor Deposition Precursor Chemistry to Template Nanostructured Vanadium Oxide for Chemical Sensing
Topic: Sensors
Published: 9/30/2010
Authors: S Y. Lee, Anna Mebust, Adam Chaimowitz, Casey Davis-VanAtta, Muhammad Yaqub Afridi, Charles Taylor
Abstract: We demonstrate the preparation of selective nanostructured vanadium oxide chemical sensors using chemical vapor deposition precursor chemistry to control film microstructure. The origins of the response selectivity may be traced back to the nature of ...

13. An Experimental Study of Interference Impacts on ZigBee-based Wireless Communications Inside Buildings
Topic: Sensors
Published: 8/7/2010
Authors: Wenqi Guo, William M Healy, Mengchu Zhou
Abstract: ZigBee is a wireless technology developed as an open global standard to address the unique needs of low-cost, low-power wireless sensor networks. This standard takes full advantages of the IEEE 802.15.4 physical radio specification and operates in un ...

Topic: Sensors
Published: 7/1/2010
Authors: Yuyin Song, Kang B Lee
Abstract: Recent advances in wireless communications, networking, electronics, and microprocessors have enabled the development of low-cost, low-power wireless sensor nodes. Wireless sensor networks have become more widely used to monitor the condition of the ...

15. Polyelectrolyte Multilayer-Treated Electrodes for Real-Time Electronic Sensing Cell Proliferation
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Sensors
Published: 4/1/2010
Authors: Geraldine I. Mijares, Darwin R Reyes-Hernandez, Jon C Geist, Michael Gaitan
Abstract: The feasibility of using and the performance of non-biological polyelectrolyte multilayer (PEM) films to facilitate cell attachment on titanium-tungsten alloy/gold (TiW/Au) electrodes for the detection of cellular responses in cell assays are investi ...

16. Wireless Sensor Network Performance Metrics for Building Applications
Topic: Sensors
Published: 4/1/2010
Authors: Won Suk Jang, William M Healy
Abstract: Metrics are investigated to help assess the performance of wireless sensors in buildings. Wireless sensor networks present tremendous opportunities for energy savings and improvement in occupant comfort in buildings by making data about conditions a ...

17. Interoperability Test of IEEE 1451.5 Standard-Based Wireless Sensors
Topic: Sensors
Published: 3/13/2010
Authors: Kang B Lee, Yuyin Song
Abstract: The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1451 standard provides plug-and-play capability of smart transducers (sensors and actuators). Plug-and-play is an important aspect of interoperability, which is the ability of two or more s ...

18. An Interoperability Test System for IEEE 1451.5-802.11 Standard
Topic: Sensors
Published: 2/25/2010
Authors: Yuyin Song, Kang B Lee
Abstract: Interoperability is the ability of systems or software applications to communicate with each other. Interoperability testing verifies that systems can work together based on a standard protocol in an operational environment. This paper introduces an ...

19. A Standards-based Global Ocean Monitoring System
Topic: Sensors
Published: 8/16/2009
Authors: Yuyin Song, Kang B Lee
Abstract: This paper describes a standards-based global ocean monitoring system developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) with collaborating partners. This system adapts the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) ...

20. Device for Measuring Heat Capacities of Microcalorimeter Absorber Materials
Topic: Sensors
Published: 7/24/2009
Author: Vincent Yoshnori Kotsubo
Abstract: We are developing a device for measuring the heat capacity of candidate absorber materials for gamma-ray microcalorimeters with the goal of finding materials with low heat capacity and high stopping power to improve detector efficiency. To date, on ...
