12. Distributed Coverage Optimization in a Network of Static and Mobile Sensors
Topic: Sensors
Published: 6/17/2013
Authors: Kamran Sayrafian, Hamid Mahboubi, Jalal Habibi, Amir Aghdam
Abstract: This paper proposes efficient schemes to increase sensing coverage in a network composed of both mobile and static sensors. The proposed deployment techniques properly assign a virtual weight to every point in the sensing field, based on the infor ...

14. A titanium-nitride near-infrared kinetic inductance photon-counting detector and its anomalous electrodynamics
Topic: Sensors
Published: 10/1/2012
Authors: Martin O. Sandberg, Fabio Cesar Da Silva, Kent D. Irwin, David P Pappas, Sae Woo Nam, David Wisbey, Ben Mazin, Seth Meeker, Jonas Zmuidzinas, Henry G. Leduc
Abstract: We demonstrate single-photon counting at 1550 nm with titanium-nitride (TiN) microwave kinetic inductancedetectors. Full-width-at-half-maximum energy resolution of 0.4 eV is achieved. 0-, 1-, 2- photon events are resolved and shown to ...

17. Ultra-high resolution alpha particle spectroscopy using calorimetry
Topic: Sensors
Published: 9/23/2008
Authors: Robert D Horansky, Joel Nathan Ullom, James A Beall, Gene C Hilton, Kent D. Irwin, Don Dry, Beth Hastings, Stephen Lamont, Clifford R Rudy, Michael W Rabin
Abstract: Calorimetry has been used since the late 1700?s to measure the heat output of physical processes ranging from chemical reactions to the respiration of organisms . Calorimetry is performed by measuring the temperature change caused by heat release int ...

18. Operation of an X-ray transition-edge sensor cooled by tunnel junction refrigerators
Topic: Sensors
Published: 1/19/2008
Authors: Nathan A Tomlin, James A Beall, Gene C Hilton, Kent D. Irwin, Galen C O\'Neil, Daniel R Schmidt, Leila R Vale, Joel Nathan Ullom
Abstract: We demonstrate successful cooling of an X-ray transition-edge sensor (TES) using solid-state refrigerators based on normal-metal/insulator/superconductor (NIS) tunnel junctions. Above the TES transition temperature (Tc), we use Johnson noise thermome ...

19. Coplanar Transmission Lines with Meandering Center Conductors in Y-Ba-Cu-O/Au Bilayers
Topic: Sensors
Published: 6/1/1999
Authors: C Weber, Ronald H. Ono, James C Booth, Leila R Vale, Samuel Paul Benz, A. M. Klushin, H. Kohlstedt, R. Semerad
Abstract: We have investigated both conventional and meandering coplanar microwave transmission lines patterned in Y-Ba-Cu-O/Au bilayers on yttria-stablized zirconia and sapphire substrates. Within the meandering waveguides, the gentre conductor was deformed ...

20. Operating Margins for a Superconducting Voltage Waveform Synthesizer
Topic: Sensors
Published: 6/1/1999
Authors: Samuel Paul Benz, Clark A. Hamilton, Charles J Burroughs
Abstract: Operating margins for biolar superconducting voltage waveform synthesizer were measured. Current ranges were determined for 101 equally spaced dc voltage steps between - 18.6 and + 18.6 mV. The measured voltages of these steps deviated from the exp ...
